Spider-Man Big Time

Wired has a preview of a new Spider-Man story arc, Big Time. They say:

Peter Parker finally gets a career and nets A-list supporting acts in Big Time. In the upcoming Spider-Man story arc, writer Dan Slott and artist Humberto Ramos give the wise-cracking superhero a maturity upgrade.

Who cares? Peter had already grown up, married, gotten real work. Then Marvel decided that they preferred him as a single, poor student so Mephisto whipped out nearly everything that happened since Gwen Stacy died. They proved that Peter will not really grow up. At any time they can just say, "oops, do-over".

The new Spider-Man movie has him in high school. When it comes out, will Marvel roll back even more of Peter's life and make him a teenager again?
