    I assumed it was "who do you believe is best suited to be Peter's main romantic interest in 616?", but I agree that the poll is unclear for the reasons you state. I'm not sure what it is these polls...

    Human beings are biologically hardwired for survival, and in the early stages of life, we develop a pattern of behavior that enables that survival. Everyone has their own internal framework that...

    It's courageous because it's akin to jumping into the deep end of a swimming pool when you have a fear of drowning.

    Many people refer to MJ's character arc as learning to be less self-centered,...

    No she wasn't. All we knew about MJ during the Romita run was that she was a girl who liked to party and dance and was pursuing acting. In terms of personality traits, she was noncommittal and...

    MJ wasn't fleshed out in the Lee-Romita run. So it's hard to call something inconsistent or OOC, when we barely knew the character apart from surface details. We hadn't seen MJ in a situation like...

    I think most of the characters in this cartoon suffer from same face.



    Very pleasantly surprised.

    Have you followed Peter and MJ's story in 616? Because quite a bit of their history involves her running away from commitment and behaving insensitively in the process. But like Peter her actions are...

    I don't expect this cartoon version to touch Spectacular. Her design here with the ponytail and jacket reminds me of the PS4 game. I wonder if she'll be an aspiring reporter.

    They've also set up a situation where (unlike the stories from the 60s-90s) there are no more meaningful consequences. May knows Peter is Spider-man until she doesn't. Harry and May are dead until...

    Sins Past is a story that can be skipped/ignored. OMD can't. Especially if you read through the comics sequentially. Not only did it break 20 years of Spider-man continuity, but it remains the...

    Let's not pretend like most characters that die in comics stay dead.



    For decades 616 Spider-man's story involved real progression of its protagonist in a serial format. We saw Peter graduate...

    I think a lot of this depends on how one views 616 continuity, and whether one sees Spider-man as a story that is serial or episodic. To me, Spider-man's story is the collection of events that...

    My sentiments exactly. Mary Jane isn't just a love interest. She is essentially the deuteragonist of 616 Spider-man continuity.

    I wouldn't have ruled it out. They had a lot of weird concepts floating around in TASM2. Maybe they would have considered it if only to bring back Emma Stone. That being said, I doubt it would've...

    Oh I agree. I think quite a bit of what Lee did with MJ was intended to be unflattering, but really had the opposite effect. She was the girl you would "date, but not marry", which also meant she was...

    Not really. The drug trilogy in particular painted MJ in a rather unflattering light. Stan wanted Gwen to be Peter's love interest at that time. It's just that Stan wasn't particularly good at...

    I have no problem with them mixing and matching elements from different continuities. As I stated before, I thought their interpretation of May was better than classic 616 May. But I didn't care for...

    I agree. I always liked the idea of MJ being a stage actress as opposed to being a film/TV actress. It just feels very particular to NYC to have her on stage.

    At one point, Sony was actually considering making a Jackpot movie. Wonder if they would have gone the Sara Ehret route.

    Agreed. I was most interested in the character when I thought is was MJ, but I'm ultimately glad they didn't go that route.

    Just rubs me the wrong way because it has often been used as a justification to split them up. Like all of Peter's girlfriends are physically super attractive, but MJ is held to different standard. ...

    Thank you for posting that. She seems to really love the character. Still I cringed a bit when she said that MJ was so out of Peter's league when asked about the Pete/MJ ship. She writes their...

    I think insomniac's portrayal of Aunt May is the best use of the character in any adaptation (even though I do love Raimi's May as well.) It's certainly better than how she's most often portrayed in...
