    Nah, it was probably Stark’s. It turns out they actually were having sex.

    Based on the overall story quality, I'd say its likely that MJ was pregnant by midichlorians.

    Then I guess if OMD is ever undone, Spidey will be like "It's over Mephisto, I have the high ground."

    Personally I don't think it is a plot point. It would be ambiance, if anything. The story clearly isn't about a baby.
    The story is about Peter and MJ selling their marriage to the devil for the life of Aunt May. Plot points are:

    1) May is dying,
    2) Peter's life is in tatters
    3) Doctors can't do anything for May
    4) Peter seeks out his superfriends and villains for help but none of them can help either
    5) Devil appears and offers Peter and MJ the deal to give up their marriage to save Aunt May
    6) They agree to give up their marriage to save May
    7) Devil does the deed
    8) Peter's life is fixed

    Its a little surreal that someone actually wrote those plot points out seriously like it was a real Spider-Man story. The message is "deals with a devil work, folks!"

    Pregnancy wouldn't ever be a relevant plot point to this story. The baby they showed wasn't either, it was just a way for Mephisto to stick it to them before he completely erases their memory of it. There was a lot of posturing and posing and philosophizing by Mephisto that was just color and ambiance.
    If MJ was pregnant, it would be relevant since they're sacrificing something that exists.

    When did Mary Jane have sex with Tony?
    I created a thread about Dick Grayson/Nightwing and Koriand'r/Starfire.
    It is to acknowledge and honor their iconic and popular relationship.

    I thought she was prego. Didn’t Petey sell his marriage AND his „daughter“? I thought that daughter was the one MJ carrying smdh

    This is an abortion debate waiting to happen. Morning sickness starts at around the six week mark. Personally I agree, but not really sure how many others would agree with "exists" in this context.

    Well, baby May existed (whether or not she died) and she got undone.

    From Peter and MJ's perspective, their daughter would exist.

    That hasn't been addressed canonically.

    Only if they knew she existed, which they didn't until Mephisto told them after they had already made the deal. At that point, they realized there was more at stake than just their marriage. Typical devil deal, too, it was the only part of the deal that felt at all devilish.
