For better or worse, Spider-Man's problems aren't because of any status quo anymore. They're entirely because of Dan Slott, who's been on the book for years and will be for years more. It's his material they're using for the new animated series, they're hinting at going forward for the new movies, and his is the one being pushed as this new definitive Spider-Man saga. The only problem is Slott can't write to save his life and is incredibly petty about the whole thing.
