I understood this to be the exact point of OMD--to forever freeze Peter in young-swinging-single-spidey amber.
Of course, that's more or less shattered now. It's just another example of how these type of articles and interviews are just fluff designed to promote the new status quo and act like it's the best shit ever--no matter how good, bad, necessary, idiotic, or hypocritical the story is.
Actually, the marriage was developing and Mary Jane got pregnant and Peter Parker quit being Spider-Man to raise a family and left someone else in a Peter Parker body to be Spider Man (Ben Reilly) which upset fans more than this(as mentioned in the article) , not knowing what to do Marvel has been back pedaling ever since.
I'm just saying, every time I've seen his posts, they are of the trolling nature. I don't frequent this board enough to see every post of his though, but still, the fact still remains that there are some great posts that he could spend his limited time commenting on, rather than those who say something negative.
And the stories Wait are writing are a mile away from the stuff Miller, Smith, Mack, Bendis, Brubaker and Diggle were writing. In fact a major plot point is that Matt is acting differently than he was before.
