Step aside Spider-Man! It looks like Mary Jane Watson is going to be moving from Web Head to Shell Head! Yep, MJ will be set to become part of the regular cast of ‘Invincible Iron Man’ in issue four in December.
Writer Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man and Powers) explains that the idea was struck when;
“We were at one of our glorious Marvel publishing retreats and certain characters got brought up, sometimes almost accidentally, and I found out that nobody had anything going on with Mary Jane,” recalls Bendis. “I sat with that for a while and I always go to this place in my head where I [wonder] what the most interesting thing I would like to see that character do now and it fell right into the ideas I was already cooking for Tony Stark.”
Bendis further hinted at the relationship between the two;
“They know each other. She used to live in Avengers Tower. But that’s all I’m going to say for now because what kind of relationship they end up having is a big part of what I would like people to buy the book for. But what I can tell you is that it is new territory for both Tony and Mary Jane. And that is pretty exciting to write.”
