Not only that, but the article just sounds dumb and uninformed.

"With Spider-Man footloose and fancy free again..."

Seriously, who wrote this shit? One of their interns??

I don't know why they'd report it anyway.

They might as well just report Ultimate Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.

I don't know why they'd report it anyway.Spider-Man films are in the box office all time top 10. The Spidey MJ relationship is part of pop culture.

The same reason they'd report on Captain America's "death" and Superman's "death." Spider-Man is a pop culture icon. A big part of the first three Spider-Man movies was the romance between Peter and Mary Jane. In fact, IIRC, the first words uttered in the first Spider-Man film are "Mary Jane Watson...")

So undoing the marriage makes for an interesting report in that sense. It's not "news," but instead, "fluff." But there ya go.

Disco was also part of pop culture.

Local Fox station in Boston just reported it last night too. My wife said it best: that even if this qualified as news , it is old news. What do we want from the same station that does american idol updates during the news.

At least it wasn't put out there (in the mainstream media) before most people even read the issue like the death of Cap was (stupid Wii News Channel spoiled it for me)

The Wii spoiled Cap for you? That is hard core!

Marvel's PR folks finally broke them down, eh? CNN and the general public doesn't care at all. The death of Superman was huge as was the death of Cap. Otherwise comics barely register on the pop culture meter. Up until this it was like USA Today and People magazine with little blurbs and that's it.

Yup I wasn't even the one reading it either. My girlfriend was on the Wii news channel and she said out loud "Captain America is dead" (or something to that effect) cause that was the headline. She thought I already knew about it but I hadn't

There's a poll up on MSN too. Their question is a little screwy though. Marvel is getting some sweet press out of this screw job.
