Wasn't that because of the Children's Television Act entering full force?

Writers relying on Deus Ex Machina to return to the status quo is one of my most hated tropes EVER.

I don't really understand how one can have so little imagination.

It's the same as ending every story by intervention of an army of the good guys all of a sudden.

Yeah, but the "F*ck Janela" stuff was on point, though.

RIKKI ROXX TRIVIA: I beat him in my first singles match ever, in a non-Title match when he was NWS Cruiserweight Champion. I earned a shot at his belt, which he conveniently lost to someone else the next night, and we never had another 1-on-1 match again.

Didn't they give you a shot at the belt anyway? That's kind of messed up you earn a contendership and they don't deliver on it even with a new champion.

Eventually. Way, way, way later on.

I don't know how to tell you this but there's no official record keeping or ranking system.

Nah, I'm just talking about what happened to Otto after Slott's Superior Spider-Man ended, when he came back using a back-up of his consciousness stored in an Octo-bot and he wound up being revived in a clone body by The Jackal (aka Scarlet Spider) that was young, athletic etc. He went on to be Superior Spider-Man again until he ran into an alternate universe Norman Osborn who exposed him publicly and threatened his girlfriend, so Otto made a deal with Mephisto to restore his original body and make him evil again so he could stop Osborn.

Sweet Mother, am I glad I gave up on that shitefest before it went too far. I mean, the CONCEPT was intriguing, but I knew after only reading the first couple of issues of that arc that it was gonna end in a clusterf**k. And apparently I was right. And I hate that. Pretty much sums up my feelings on virtually everything since OMD. The few bright spots since that travesty have been minor, at best- Mr. Negative, Anti-Venom, Renew, and a few side-plots and other minor characters. (I really enjoyed that female speed-skater with the helmet-cam robbing banks and doing parkour all over the place, but she sadly disappeared quickly. Same goes for that adrenaline junkie, Spidey-fan car thief/racer. Yeah, I am going waaay back for those two, but they were two of the very few highlights post OMD.) Sadly, most of what I've flipped through since then has been- sub-par, at best, or just plain depressingly dumb. (I could go on a rant here about Kamala, too, but she's another issue....)

Not by any fans with a shred of dignity or respect for the characters, it ain't.
