I am shocked, SHOCKED!

Change is good as long as the story is good. One reason there was so much outrage over OMD wasn't just that they broke up Peter and MJ, but that the story was crap. Mephisto casts a spell and we're just supposed to pretend the last 20 years didn't happen (wink, wink). Lazy bastards.
Tell good stories and people will respond, fans can sniff out a gimmick from a mile away
I don't know. The Clone Saga was ultimately a failure, is Marvel really so inept as to recycle that idea? But then after OMD I guess anything is possible.
Peter revealed his identity during the Civil War and at the time I thought that was awesome, a truly fresh and new direction for Spider-Man. Of course One More Day screwed all that up and ASM has been running on the same old treadmill ever since (or so I understand, I dropped the title right after OMD)
So I hope his identity is revealed, maybe fulfill some of that potential from 5 years ago. Hell, I might even pick it back up.
I actually think there's potential here for FF to be a good book. It's an odd collection of heroes but if Fraction can develop some chemistry then it could be fun. As for Miss Thing, it's a really dumb name but if there's some actual character development, if she goes from shallow celebutante to actual hero it could be interesting, but if she's just a punchline every month that will get real old real soon.
