    1. Turn Peter Parker gay. He starts a relationship with Miles Morales and gives up being Spider-man because he states how much Miles is better at being a superhero than him. Parker simply becomes a lecturer that worries anytime Miles goes out adventuring.

    2. Mary Jane is broken by all this and sudden exposure to Terrigen Mists awaken her Inhuman powers. She becomes the supervillain "Hysteria" and her powers are a sonic scream. She then uses black magic to awaken Gwen Stacy and they both become Miles arch nemesis.

    3. This book will be written by Chuck Austen and drawn by Greg Land.

    1 and 2 would be interesting enough for me to read.

    I agree it is controversial but I would read a book with 1 and 2, it would make a nice AU story with the right writer.

    Make it boring.

    What you guys are describing might make it a critical failure, might make it a failure to fans, but not necessarily a commercial failure. Seriously, some of the ideas presented in this thread I'd read just to see what happens next. Some ideas might be offensive, and again that could have the opposite effect on what you want. Some people would want to read it just to see what the rukus is all about. But make it boring, and that's pretty much it. Nobody wants boring.
    Genre fans love boring, as long as it is indulgent. Just go check out some fan fiction.

    An unfortunately large amount of fans would love nothing more than to see characters they love just hanging out at a party absent any drama or even story structure.

    Remember the Trouble miniseries from some years ago? Make it canon.

    Better: The all new all different clone saga event, followed by the totally New clone saga event, and then the clone legacy. And the Clone empire, the Clone Wars and the clones strike back.. Everyone an event with their own bookeends and spin-offs.

    Nothing, Spider-Man is far too popular a character to get to a point where sales go down that significantly.

    Make Spider-Man a complete numbskull, unable to untangle himself from trouble he puts himself through, instead his plans always make things worse.

    Let him need to be rescued by his supporting characters and guest heroes.

    Give Peter Parker a love affair with Marisa Tomei, or some random chick that looks like her, as long as she's Italian.

    Send him to a world where normal pedestrians are more powerful than Spider-Man, buildings are so powerful they shatter the hands of super powered beings to that world, and let him get slapped by Sajani or any character fans don't like.

    Make the writing very bad and incoherent.

    Keep this up for five years or more.

    No satellite titles.

    Peter marries MJ and settles down, Ben27 becomes the full time Spider-Man amidst a giant crossover with Spider-Gwen, where Kaine is constantly trying to hook up with her.

    lol, reading this thread is so great. I think this might be my favorite comics thread here so far!

    as for some more off-the-wall ideas (i'm not holding back with these anymore):
    - reveal that MJ was a part of a 3some with Osborn (at the same time as Gwen) and kept cheating on Peter with him while they were married/in a relationship
    - reveal that Aunt May was actually Mephisto all along (as part of a plot from the 60s)
    - reveal that Peter was actually a botched clone of Miles Morales, and that the reason why Peter's clones all mostly failed was because they were clones of clones
    - this makes Peter feel even worse, throwing off his hero game. So, Superior Ock takes his chance to track Peter down and completely destroy him in a fight ending in a scan reminiscent of that infamous Ock vs Stark fight back near Invincible Iron Man 500. Ock also somehow depowers Peter.
    - finally, all this mental anguish makes Peter have a complete breakdown and becoming a crazy homeless person, but no one notices since it is revealed all his friends were just evil robots programmed by Chamelon to infliltrate Spider-Man's friend circle and find his identity (since he knows Peter is tied to Spidey).

    If anyone keeps reading Spider-Man, let alone Marvel, after that, I'll honestly be the first to commend them, LOL.

    You know, apart from the last bit about Kaine, I feel like there are some people who'd actually LOVE this, lol.

    Aunt May as a Hydra Agent who married Uncle Ben to find out what he knows about Peter's parents' activities as secret agents.
    Uncle Ben finds out about the truth about Aunt May, and so she kills him

    I created a fan page about Peter Parker/Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson.

    This page is for all the Spider-Marriage fans.
