    I like how DC tends to deal with these things a lot more.
    "We're doing a reboot. Superman and Lois are now about 10 years younger and not married. Because we think that works better for the characters. Deal with it."
    Agreed. Though DC had the luxury of rebooting everything, Marvel only wanted to do Spider-Man.

    OMIT was a lot worse than OMD though.

    Marvel also has that luxury. They just chose not to do it.
    'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    Maybe I don't pay enough attention to DC, but it doesn't seem like undoing Supes' marriage caused anywhere near the outrage of OMD.

    I can see Pete taking the deal. Plays into the whole sins of the past obsession/guilt over what's lost or will be lost as opposed to looking ahead. I don't know Mephisto well enough to judge his motivations, but for Doc I would say that's not really a character related issue, rather PIS.

    It didn't. There are a few reasons for that.

    Superman wasn't involved in the decisions to change history, so while the character had less agency, which is usually a bad thing, in a work of fiction, it meant that the character couldn't be blamed for the decision.

    Flashpoint was ultimately an unconventional Batman/ Flash team-up in which Barry Allen was able to undo a mistake he had made while changing history. So the central story was intrinsically appealing to DC fans. And the changes to the New 52 occurred as a result of a decision that's more acceptable to readers than a story in which a hero isn't unable to undo a bad decision.

    The previous few years of Superman comics hadn't been that good. You had the World of Krypton mini-series followed by JMS's walkabout arc. Compare that to the Spider-Man comics, where the Back in Black arc gave Amazing Spider-Man the best sales of JMS's tenure on the title. Most readers were happy to trade that for Grant Morrison on Action Comics.

It seems to me that from issue 1 to say 300 should remain canon and everything after scraped. Before the hate emails this is only my opinion, but it did lose its way after this point.
    Well in fairness just because they aren't married that doesn't mean they can't have a baby.

    I agree. The Baby thing was just laziness from Marvel. You don't need to be married to have a child.

    The only good solution to OMD is to forget it.

    Easier said than done unfortunately for me considering it's #1 on my top 5 worst comics stories of all time list.

    It's pretty high on my list too, only I have the good sense not to spend time worrying about a crappy comic book made 5 years ago, especially when there's been so many good Spidey stories since in the HUNDREDS of issues that followed.

    A blogger had an interesting idea: Reveal that all the changes are part of a deal Mephisto made with Norman Osborn.

    It's more effective than the average solution to make OMD critics happy/ neutral.

    I find it incredible that people only reach the bargaining stage 5 years later.
