a recounting of Spider-Man's role in 2006's terrible crossover, Civil War, that not only gushes about a real time-waster, it won't even admit clearly why it was bad for Spidey in long term:
For awhile, the Marvel Universe is changed, and heroes who are registered become the top dogs, while heroes who are not are forced to fight with villains, avoid the law, and take on a much larger population of Pro-Reg backers. Much like everything in comics though, this status was only temporary, and Spider-Man eventually found himself regaining his secret identity and losing his marriage thanks to a weird spell created by Dr. Strange and the shenanigans of Satan (don’t ask).
But that's all they can say. And it wasn't Strange who engineered the alteration (though don't be surprised if he's got powers now like what Bendis foisted on Scarlet Witch), it was Mephisto, whom they curiously don't identify by official name. (Are they trying to make people think it was Daimon Hellstrom who did it?) Even if it's only Civil War they're talking about, their disinterest in stressing how poorly served Spidey was as a character by the whole embarrassment is quite a telling failure, and decidedly confirms they had no serious issue with it. Which only says they're not really Marvel fans at all, nor did they ever admire Mary Jane Watson as a character creation. Otherwise, they'd have what it takes to recognize why these company wide crossovers have served superhero comics very badly in the long run.
