Happy Accident

I was talking with Joe Patrick on Twitter about “The Clone Conspiracy”. I asked him, (considering I didn’t read it) if Dan Slott touched on-Mary Jane’s and Peter’s, unborn child. He told, Slott didn’t and then he said, “After 20 years, I think it’s safe to say that Marvel isn’t interested in tugging on that plot thread any more”. 
It hurt to hear that. It made me think about continuity, reboots, retcons, DC and Marvel comics. Only reason I bring this up is because DC and Geoff Johns are doing something at DC that’s changing comics. 
They created a new universe then, after that universe didn’t work on the big scale, they altered it with the previous universe. Which I love and find to be fun and exhilarating. You have a DC Comics universe that new fans jump on board with and loved it. Then you have a previous DC Comics universe, that older and arguably, established fans grew up with. Something that Marvel is ignoring and paying less and less attention towards. 
What DC Comics and Johns are doing is not only blending two universe’s, they’re also bringing together two different types of comics and DC Comics fans. In my eyes it’s gorgeous and a very happy “accident”.
