    From http://www.comixfan.com/xfan/

    When MK started, it was about "the other guys". It included
    - Daredevil, a character not particularly popular.
    - Punisher, an over exposed and bland one trick pony
    - Inhumans, a bunch of guys who would occasionally pop up
    - Black Panther, some guy who was an Avenger yet rules his own country

    It took these guys and turned them into top selling books. Then MK moved to be a PG-13 format book. It became what was once "Marvel Edge" Now it finally goes back to what it was. This pretty much makes that 04'04 move for some characters useless. Also, I see Spiderman will become Spectacular. Kind of a shot at jenkins if you ask me. That was his book and MK Spidey should just be regular old Spiderman.

    But I look forward to it becomming the place for major creators on so-so characters.

    Sensational, not Spectacular, Jenkins' book being vol. 2 of Spectacular, anyway. Not that it matters, aside from ASM, the Spidey titles are a convoluted name-changing mess.

    When ASM 'ended' at 441, so did Web of, Spectacular (formerly Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man), and Peter Parker: Spider Man (formerly the adjectiveless Spider Man that started out as Mcfarlane's baby). Somewhere in the mid-late '90s, Sensational Spider-Man had it's 30+ issue run. Actually, come to think of it, I think Web of ended earlier and Sensational took its place, but ended before the ASM, SSM and PP:SM 'Final Chapter' crossover conclusion shebang.

    When ASM rebooted, Peter Parker: Spider-Man did too. PP:SM was canceled after about four years and Spectacular Spider Man vol. 2 rose to take it's place. Then they started the adjectiveless MK:SM, the 'darker' title...which is what the original adjectiveless Spider-Man was...before it was changed to PP:SM, canceled, rebooted and canceled again in favor of Spectacular vol. 2. Then Spectacular was canceled again. THEN came Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Now they're changing MK/adjectiveless Spider-Man, not to be confused with the original adjectiveless SM, to Sensational SM...vol. 2.

    :sly: 

    Enough already. At this point, I expect they'll change Friendly Neighborhood Spider-man to Web of, change Sensational 'back' to Spectacular and then relaunch the adjectiveless or PP:SM title just before or after one of the above two gets canned...again...I think.
