Spider-Man has revolutionized the world of comics with the revelation of the truth behind the children of Mary Jane Watson. This has happened in number 25 of the current Amazing Spider-Man series, and information that no one expected has been revealed.
Apparently, the children of mary jane watsonOwen and Stephanie aren’t actually the biological children of Spider-Man’s iconic female character. MJ has always been one of the most powerful and interesting narrative elements in Spider-Man history, and much of the mythology of the Marvel Universe cannot be understood without her.
The Amazing Spider-Man series, the work of Zeb Wells, Kaare Andrews, John Romita Jr. and Scott Hanna, has explained why Peter Parker y Mary Jane Watson they broke up their previous relationship, and also how Spider-Man’s ex-girlfriend ended up in a relationship that involved her with a mysterious (and new) guy named Paul.
In fact, the first installment of Amazing Spider-Man left the readers of the marvel comics completely gobsmacked. It turns out that not only was she dating this guy named Paul and left him with our precious Peter… It was also revealed that he had two children named Owen and Stephanie! Too much information for a first number, yes.
In this story, Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson get trapped in an alternate reality… which turns out to be a post-apocalyptic world. Spider-Man manages to escape from that universe, but returns to it a couple of days later to help MJ follow in his footsteps. When he returns to the post-apocalyptic world, he discovers that four years have passed in that reality..
In this latest installment of Amazing Spider-Man, Mary Jane Watson admits that her relationship with Paul had a rocky start. It took MJ a while to assimilate and end up accepting that Peter had left her and left her alone. Little did she know that they were barely forty-eight hours apart. For her, it was four years.
Several months later, Mary Jane Watson y Paul Two lost children were found in that post-apocalyptic world. Owen and Stephanie were alone, in a small storage shed, scavenging for supplies to dodge death. So, the couple decided to take them in and raise them as their own… despite not knowing them.
“I’m sure her parents didn’t just leave,” Mary Jane Watson admits to Paul at one point. Of course, this completely changes the shock we readers received when we learned that MJ had become a mother in the spiderman comics. Perhaps it makes more narrative sense, of course; but impresses nonetheless.
