That alone might have kept the readers glued to the series as Peter would have been tired to Felicia Hardy once again through their love child that she chose to keep a secret until that moment. Then we would have gotten two versions of Spider-Girl who does things that are vastly different from the other.

I don't like the idea of a big 'Spider Family' or even Spider-Man being on the Avengers, but the franchise is probably in the best position it has ever been to have these spin-off titles.
I don't think it is necessary to compare these characters to the Batman ones (and Nightwing isn't exactly like Kaine!)
If Marvel wanted a few more titles, I'd add:
Spider-Girl (set in a rebooted MC2 universe, inspired but not written by DeFalco).
Black Cat or Spider-Woman
Peter Parker: Spider-Man (A cinematic series by new creative teams, where the stories aren't necessarily in continuity, but aren't obviously out of it either. Similar to Untold Tales. Each arc is standalone and can be from various points in Spidey's history, he can even be married and to cash in on the new movie, maybe Gwen can know his secret in some stories).
Plus keep Venom, Amazing and Scarlet. Avenging I can take or leave, though it could be a good move to re-brand it Spider-Man/Captain Marvel.
Spider-man - Batman
Spider-girl - Batgirl
Black Cat - Catwoman
Venom - Bane
The Black Widow - Red Hood
Scarlet Spider - Nightwing?
Spider-Woman - Batwoman
Madame Web - Oracle

Here is the Earth-X version of Mayday:

Er... why? Heck, one could see May's universe as the one in which all of that was finally averted. We did see what was up with various X-characters--Wolverine and Elektra had married, for example. While mutants were not totally accepted in society, they were much more so than in the past, which I thought was a great thing: Xavier's dream finally was made real. Part of the appeal for me of the MC-2 universe was it was a positive future, and not a tragic dystopia.He could have combine elements from past future timeline stories like The X-Men's days of futures past characters who appeared in X-Men #141 and #142 in the MC2 timeline since May Parker's story was to begin around the year 2013.
I found it vastly more interesting than the Ultimate Universe, myself.I think that a huge opportunity was missed in making MC2 as interesting as the Ultimate Universe
Well, May visiting various worlds could be interesting but I would not radically change her actual universe per se. To me that would defeat the whole point of the MC-2 world altogether--especially if it were in some negative way.Another thing that he could have done was bring in some of the past characters from the New Universe story line from the 1980s like Spitfire and the Troubleshooters along with bringing over her alternate reality half-sister from the Marvel 2020 Universe who might be the alternate reality daughter of Peter Parker and Jessica Drew from her world:
By the way, did you check out the link that I provided for you to look at on post #22?

Ah, I see! Yes, that would be much better. :)
Re the link, I have seen it now, but since I read all of the Earth/Paradise/Etc. X series, I did know who she was. :) (I found the Earth X series an interesting read but I don't really care for the universe; it was kind of the ultimate "everything you know is a lie!" story, except about every single thing and character in the Marvel Universe.)
Well, it's not really "finished" any more than 616 or the Ultimate universe are. And for 616, there are thousands and thousands of issues of that universe that could hinder a new reader--and yet somehow they don't... ;)
A "new" Spider-Girl per se would be in yet another universe, which would defeat the purpose of her being the MC-2 one altogether.
Now jumping her to college age, especially if it were by Tom DeFalco, would be cool.
