No creative team has been announced, but Jed MacKay has to be a favourite as writer, since he write the recent Black Cat and Iron Cat series, got involved in previous Spider-crossovers including writing the Mary Jane & Black Cat: Beyond #1 which tied in with Spider-Man Beyond. That was drawn by Carlos Villa.

Peter Parker/Spider-Man did something so unspeakable six months ago that a) no one can speak about it b) Mary Jane left him, and is currently living with another man called Paul and two children who call her Mommy.

And with two children who called her "Mommy".  Which by anyone's standards is moving fast.

Oh and in Amazing Spider-Man #900 recently? This happened. I guess Mary Jane and Felicia will have an awful lot to talk about.

A fan asks if there's hope for Peter and Mary Jane. "Spider-Man and Peter Parker is an inspriation for responsibility," they say, adding that there's no greater responsibility than being a parent. "Who here wants Peter and Mary Jane to be married?" he asks, and people cheer and applaud. "I can't give you the nice answer that you want, unfortunately," Cebulski says, adding that just because MJ may be Peter's true love, that doesn't necessarily means that it works out. "There's so much planned for them."
