Tragic Tales of Lack of Parallel Structure

From the Marvel solicits for February (via Graeme McMillan):

Reed and Sue, heart and soul of Marvel????????s First Family of Super Heroes. Peter and Mary Jane, the spider and the supermodel. Scott and Jean, childhood sweethearts sworn to protect a world that hates and fears them. Bruce and Betty, the beauty and the beast. Break out the tissues, True Believer: The House of Ideas cordially invites you to celebrate the history-making nuptials of its greatest couples in this keepsake edition! From the Fantastic Four to Spider-Man to the X-Men, with a few surprises in between, this commemorative volume proves the power of love can overcome all odds! [emphasis mine]

    If find it kind of funny that half the couples they mentioned aren’t together any more because they killed off the wife.

    Yeah, but the power of love can overcome all odds, even death, Shane. Duh!

    Nothing like a good look back at the moment when the Wasp tricked her psychologically unstable boyfriend into marrying her. *Sniff.* Maybe we’ll get MARVEL BREAK-UPS as a book-end.
