Yes, it's still true. In my opinion is implied in every post. Please remember that.
I think readers would be less eager to have Aunt May killed off if Peter had a kid. It would make May useful to the narrative (as a babysitter and source for advice on parenting) in a way that's clear to readers to make up for all the times she causes Peter trouble.
I don't care about her one way or the other. Aunt May's always just been a background character as far as I'm concerned. Jameson, Norman, Gwen, Harry, MJ, Otto, exact are all far more important and interesting characters.
"You'll never learn to fly now 'til you're standing at the cliff."
I think the whole reason why Aunt May stopped dying fake deaths is that the guys at Marvel figured Aunt May's fake deaths were an old joke running stale. But for me, the older times when Aunt May gave me chuckles because it gave me a relief that I wasn't the only guy who got annoyed at how much my mother or mother figure cares about me.

Yes. You do have to accept it. Because it happened. And it's not going to change. No amount of crying on the internet will change that.When I don't like something...I don't buy it, but that doesn't mean I have to accept a beloved character who has been turned into a carbon copy of its former self.
You can continue posting about something you don't like, haven't read, and don't buy all the while annoying the man many many of us that DO enjoy Spider-man still or you can actually go out and find something you enjoy.
Not being able to accept what happened year ago has already happened and people have moved on isn't a thing to be proud of.
And saying that a certain thing will happen when the company has spent decades trying to make it go away and an employee of the company comes out and tells you that it will never happen in a million years is deluded.Change is inevitable...maintaining the stance that Peter will always stay single with no real progression to his character and that nothing will ever change in the comics is kind of naive.
Don't get me wrong. Things do change. Sometimes what people think is nearly impossible does happen. But if somebody tells you that something is impossible, there's no sense complaining when it doesn't happen. Sure, you can be surprised and happy when it does, just don't count on it.
I'm always a bit bewildered by the anti-Aunt May sentiment. Unless you were reading ASM exclusively in the 1970's, she hasn't had a heart attack in 40 years and hasn't played the "oh dear, Peter, wear your galoshes today" doting old biddy in nearly as long. She has been written, slowly but surely, to be a bit younger and a lot more independent. This is a character who formed a Grey Panthers chapter, turned her home into a boarding house for Seniors and most recently been active with PI and the Uncle Ben foundation. She has also been gradually moved to the background of the book, often not appearing for very long stretches. So unless this is pure ageism, I don't accept the accusation that she is "old and in the way". I am not saying she is my favorite character but she is Peter's only known living relative, his mother figure and a daily reminder of why he does what he does as a hero. So....why all the hate?
I miss Kevin Nichols. Not as much as bacon, but still...
