That’s right people, December is upon us! That means that depending on which part of the world you live in, it won’t be long until you get to experience the new Spider-Man movie, named Far From Home. We know there’s a few older villains coming back for a huge face-off against our friendly neighborhood hero, but everything else is being kept tightly under wraps.
This might be as good a time as any to look at some things Spider-Man has done in his decades-long past that weren’t all that friendly neighborhood.
Eating Mary Jane as a Zombie
The Marvel Zombies series had some pretty screwed up parts in it, but very few were as horrifying as having a zombie Spider-Man eats Mary Jane Watson. Having him eats the one true love of his life came as a very shocking part of the story and really set the tone. This wouldn’t be the typical Spider-Man story with whimsical sauce poured all over it.
Giving Up His Marriage
In the One More Day storyline, Spidey asks Mephisto – the actual Devil – to cast a spell so the people forget that he is Peter Parker once again. As a trade-off, Spidey has to sacrifice the marriage he has to Mary Jane. It’s a bit of a slap in the face of both of those characters to go through with it, but Spidey did. To add insult to injury, Mephisto shows Peter the daughter he and MJ would have had.
Killing Mary Jane Watson
It’s not the fact that Mary Jane died that’s messed up, it’s mostly how Spidey ended up killing her. That’s right, getting bitten by a radioactive spider turned him radioactive, meaning that he himself and all his bodily fluids were only slowly killing Mary Jane. As far as rough deals go, this has got to be one of the worst.
