That is what I've been wondering about...how will this affect the spell and the deal? I also still don't rule out that golden octobot. To me that is the key, and possibly the backdoor plot that people have been mentioning.
Daredevil #21 tomorrow will be of interest...since it will be the first actual Marvel Universe appearance of Superior Spider-Man. Should be interesting to find out if Matt will figure out who he is or not
