Often times DeMatteis who wrote this story and many other commentators have described the scene of Spider-Man rising out of the grave as occurring due to his love for Mary Jane.
However looking at the scene and scenes before and after it in the story over all there seems to be an implication that Kraven himself brought Spider-Man out of the the grave via voodoo?
In other words MJ or no MJ Peter was going to get out of that grave due to Kraven anyway?
Or am I misreading that scene (I hope so).
Could it be both perhaps?
I’d really like to get people’s thoughts on this one.
For the record here are some images from the 6 part story that got me pondering the question above.
