Mary Jane Watson Variants Coming This June!
New York, NY—March, 20th 2017 — Face it, comic book fans – you just hit the jackpot! Your eyes do not deceive, True Believer. Mary Jane Watson is getting a superhero overhaul this June at your local comic shop for a series of MARY JANE WATSON VARIANTS coming to your local comic store! To celebrate the launch of the highly-anticipated new series, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #1 – one of the most iconic Spider-Man characters ever takes the Marvel Universe by storm and steps into the boots of its most famous heroes!
“Both the Gwen Stacy Variant Program and this month’s Venomized Variant Program were such runaway successes, we couldn’t help but try to top ourselves,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “And with Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert’s new Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man book on the horizon, the timing couldn’t have been better to put the spotlight on fan-favorite Mary Jane Watson.”
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, wonder no longer!
