Ben Rielly and the Clone Saga was aborted and One More Day was successful, but what if there was some sort of deal you could make to undo OMD, to make it so it never happened, but the cost... The cost was that all Spider-Man comics after the Clone Saga starred Ben Rielly. What would you do?

I'd take the deal.

I mean you might call it a massive retcon if you read about it.

I voted for OMD. I suppose you could argue that Ben Reilly wouldn't be as awful a retcon, but, as they say, better the Mephisto you know than the Mephisto you don't.

Yeah, that's what I figured. I like the current status quo.

You know if the clone saga had been successful we would have had a Spider Man who was retired with MJ and had a kid with her.

The real Spider-Man would have been able to retire with dignity and have his happy ending, instead of having his history obliterated to wrench him in a different direction.

but you know, no one gets a happy ending.... that's just not how it works.... Claremont tried that with Cyclops and we ended up with the Goblin Queen instead..... :P

Well, I wouldn't have minded a retired Peter Parker as long as we knew the whole time that Spider-Man was Ben Reilly.

Having it be Peter Parker and then later say, never mind, it was actually Ben Reilly the whole time, I would hate.
