Peter and Mary Jane's First Date
FYI, Mary Jane Watson fans: Marvel's just put out a new TPB called Spider-Man/Mary Jane: You've Just Hit the Jackpot! that collects MJ-centric stories from throughout the character's history. I'm happy I finally own the Parallel Lives graphic novel! Now back to your regularly scheduled post, already in progress.
We're all familiar with this classic moment, right? But what happened after Peter opened the door? Scans from ASM #43.
Peter and MJ are set up on a blind date by their aunts. May has been trying to get Peter to go out with "Miss Watson's niece" since ASM #15--the usual "oh, she has a nice personality!" running gag. Peter finally gives in, dreading the ordeal, but then he actually meets Mary Jane. Tiger, jackpot, hit, etc. etc.
(Their song is, of course, "Kung Fu Fighting.")
*insert fight here*
*insert plot here*
And with the typical Parker Pity Party, the issue ends. And Mary Jane was here to stay.
