Tommy Wilson, fellow SpiderFan.org writer and a frequent commenter on my blog presented some strips from the Amazing Spider-Man newspaper strip. These are actually more than 10 years old and I normally don't talk much about the strip here since another SpiderFan writer handles that pretty well, but I thought these warranted posting and talking about.
Posted above are a few strips where Mary Jane unleashes her fury on Peter on what is clearly romance of the one-sided kind in order to create a publicity stunt. Peter tells MJ this but it doesn't look like she really believes him. Looks like Ditko-Gwen possessed MJ because she's slapping the spit out of Peter. Now I've heard of overacting but MJ's behavior here is borderline psycho.
Get this woman some Valium. I know Stan was only trying to add romantic tension in the strip, but making MJ the hot tempered, crazy jealous wife is a bit much. Even though its really out of character for her to act that way, I think its really funny. Still, if Peter were the type to retaliate, it wouldn't be pretty. Normally isn't a good idea to abuse your spouse when said spouse can lift 10 tons.
