So, I know this is probably the worst retcon in the history of retcons, but I just want to clear a few things up for myself. I know that the things that changed on Earth 616 was Peter never got married to MJ, just dated her instead. Norman is alive. Peter uses mechanical webshooters, Peter never had a kid, and no one remembers who Spider-Man is from his unmasking in Civil War. Is that pretty much the main points of what changed?
I have a huge problem with destroying something like this. I mean, honestly, there is so much wrong with it. The biggest problem, there are some stories that would not have happened unless Peter and MJ were married, and if one story hadn't happened, then B wouldn't have happened which mean C wouldn't have happened, etc. Basically, nothing would have played itself out the exact same way as it did the first time. The X-Men would have been affected, the Avengers, FF, every story would have been effected on some level. The Butterfly effect, basically.
