Mary Jane Watson Takes Over Variant Covers For Twenty-Two Marvel Series In June

by Staff

 

 

Marvel have announced that Mary Jane Watson is “getting a superhero overhaul” this June through a series of Mary Jane Watson Variants. This is to celebrate the launch of the new series, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man in its first issue in June.

Previously, the Gwen Stacy Variant Program and Venomized Variant Program followed a similar course, and so it’s not a huge surprise that Marvel are presenting a Mary Jane Watson Program. Written by Chip Zdarsky and drawn by Adam Kubert, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man is receiving plenty of attention as a big summer launch, supported by this program.

The variants do pose some intriguing and imaginative questions, as Marvel states, like:

What if Mary Jane had been awarded the Eye of Agamotto to become the new Dr. Strange? What if she had taken up the one-woman war on crime as the Punisher? Or became infused with gamma radiation to become the new Incredible Hulk?

Well, as much as I like those heroes, I think Mary Jane would have totally crushed it in those roles. So what books will be graced with her cover-presence?
