Off My Mind: Spider-Man - OMD, BND And Now O.M.I.T.
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
What's next for Spider-Man?
The main argument was that a married Spider-Man was too hard to follow. Or perhaps the kids can't relate to an old married dude swinging around in spandex (even though Ultimate Spider-Man was supposed to be the solution to that problem). Spider-Man was one of the first comics that I really got into and devoured. I often get people asking me what I think of Brand New Day. The answer is I understand why it was done. I am still enjoying Spider-Man's adventures but I'm not crazy about how we got where we are today.
There has been some really good stories since Brand New Day. There still are some questions that haven't been resolved. We've seen the answer to what happened to the memories of those that knew who Spider-Man was. We had an explanation as to how Harry Osborn returned from the dead (even if it doesn't make sense that it would somehow result from the deal with Mephisto). We've been told that Spider-Man's history hasn't been completely erased and have seen flashbacks to the arguments that everything happened as before except Peter and Mary Jane didn't get married. We still haven't seen everything.
With O.M.I.T., we've been wondering what the letters stand for. The common assumption is it stands for One Moment In Time. Because Joe Quesada and Paolo Rivera are involved, it's natural to assume that Spider-Man is involved. We're supposed to get a big announcement Saturday at C2E2. Yesterday it appeared that the secret leaked out.
== TEASER ==
According to Bleeding Cool, O.M.I.T. does indeed stand for One Moment In Time. The following image has been discovered:
The Other storyline and people seemed to like that. When Brand New Day happened, people were saying they were going to stop reading Spider-Man. There's no way I would do that unless Spider-Man was completely changed and turned into an alien from another dimension or something. The stories are still entertaining. Spider-Man is still the same character (for the most part). The comic is still fun. It sucks that the marriage was erased but that happened over two years ago. Comics are supposed to be fun and a decision made by editorial isn't going to ruin my life or enjoyment.
With this reveal of O.M.I.T., I'm interested but I'm not on the edge of my seat waiting to see what will happen. I don't know if it will change anything or just give us a look at what happened. Perhaps it will appease those that are really upset over Brand New Day. Paolo Rivera has been doing some amazing work (no pun intended) on Spider-Man and I'm looking forward to seeing where this will go.
What are your thoughts on this reveal? Do you think it will answer the questions you have? Are you still upset over the break-up of the marriage? Are you still reading Spider-Man's current adventures?
