    ok u did explain it better for me but considering she does put herself into unnecessary danger. But she probably she my least favorite version of the character so far

    As long as she stops invading military bases with no backup and bitching at Peter when he does the logical thing of trying to help her...

    I think the game emphasized that the pair work best together as partners and there are things MJ can accomplish that Peter can't, even if she generally gets out of her depth at times and needs Peter's help.

    And I say this as someone who is definitely not pro-MJ as a reporter.

    I'm wondering when she comes back from Symkaria, she'll have any PTSD from what she's seen.

    It'll be interesting to see what they do with it, but conceptually I figure it's just to write her out so Peter has to deal with Miles and the Symbiote on his own.

    She was witness to a terrorist attack in the main game, so she's seen violence, death, and destruction first hand.

    I mean, I don't know if that's actually comparable to a warzone, even if gang war and post-virus New York could get pretty bad.

    People did suffer PTSD after 9/11 and not just survivors and first responders but also bystanders and witnesses. Heck people who endure school shootings suffer through it as well.

    That's fair. I just feel like it should be a very different, yet dangerous, experience.

    That's the point though, considering you see how Peter's overprotectiveness makes things worse, constantly babying her to stay put and not do any field work, or interrupting her conversation with the scientist at the Sable camp. But then you see how sometimes she needs Peter's help and can't just jump into a situation without preparation, like at the Grand Central Station incident. And by the time she saves him from the burning building, they both learn they need to trust each other, which is shown how they are able to handle the Osborn break-in near the end of the game.

    Looking for some help. I remember a couple of panels from theb90s, where MJ mentioned mallomars. Cant remember which book or what issue sadly. Anyone have any ideas?

    I wouldn't call it "babying" so much as genuine worry and concern over her safety. He wasn't treating her like a child or someone who wasn't capable in my opinion. But I guess that would probably come across as "babying" to someone who's really assertive or outgoing.

    The Sable thing was a complete accident that could have been easily misconstrued.

    Mark Brooks tweeted this work in progress, apparently for an upcoming X-book variant cover.

    Not bad, but that looks more like Jean Grey than Mary Jane Watson.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    Whoops! I got carried away and misread that as MJ. My bad. Morning here and haven't had my coffee, but MJ could still stand in for Jean in a cover if you ask me. I see a redhead I see MJ.
