Spider-Man: Married to MJ Again! (In the Newspaper)

smmj2-marvel456

In case you hadn't heard, a little over a year ago, Spider-Man -- who married hot-redheaded model/actress Mary Jane in 1987 -- had his marriage magically dissolved by Mephisto, a.k.a. the Devil. This wasn't a divorce, mind you -- it changed reality so that the marriage had actually never happened, leaving Peter Parker a swinging single once again...
