Mary Jane Watson is going to make a comeback in the “All New, All Different” Marvel comic universe as a regular supporting character in Invincible Iron Man, starting with issue #4, written by Brian Bendis. It is not clear what the relationship between the two is going to be. According to Bendis, “They know each other,” but he declines to give further details adding only “what I can tell you is that it is new territory for both Tony and Mary Jane.” So, can we hope it is not a romance? Because both characters have had long-running romances in their titles, and both characters have been serious–although I suppose Mary Jane doesn’t remember the whole marriage business (Yes, still bitter).
It would be nice to see something different–a steady friendship, perhaps. Or maybe Mary Jane gets tired of waiting for the superheroes to come home and picks out a costume of her own?
Invincible Iron Man makes its start in November, and it will be December before we see just what kind of relationship the two characters will have.
