Mary Jane Watson Joins Cast Of Iron Man

Looks like Marvel Knights Spiderman #20 became more desirable as the announcement has come out that Mary Jane Watson will be joining the cast of Invincible Iron Man with issue #4.

Comic had the story:

Mary Jane Watson is leaving the web-head behind, and joining Tony Stark’s supporting cast as of December’s Invincible Iron Man #4.

Marvel made the announcement today. Mary Jane is said to play “an unexpected new role” in Tony Stark’s life.

“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,” writer Brian Michael Bendis tells “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.”

  1. so what impact will this have on ASM Renew your vows #5? the secondary market on ebay for this issue is pretty dead (variants not withstanding)

  2. Something bigger might emerge in the near future. In early stage, little is revealed and much mystery remains. Tony Stark has been replaced as iron man before but Mary Jane is more popular than Jim Rhodes. Besides, DC and Marvel like to stretch a event into several books to sell more. For example, Amazing Spiderman 1-4 (2014) when Cindy Moon becomes Silk.
