So, here’s a little section I like to call “Pointless Optimism.” It’s where I have a weird thought about something going on in the industry and where I believe it might be headed, though in all reality it probably isn’t.

I got to thinking about Marvel’s “Dark Reign” stuff with Norman Osbourne in a position of power, and of course, being the obsessed dork that I am about One More Day, it occurred to me that maybe Dark Reign came about expressly BECAUSE of Spidey’s deal with the devil.

So could Marvel’s long-term planning be for Spidey to realize what he’d done and that the deal would be revoked in order to solve Dark Reign?

Probably not, but it was a thought.
