Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy are trapped in Limbo and at the mercy of BELASCO THE SWORDSMAN! As if that wasn't BAD ENOUGH, they're also keeping SECRETS from one another! Somehow, MJ's got powers and there's a new (old) man in Felicia's life-and if they don't come clean with one another, they could be stuck in Limbo FOREVER!

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 13, 2023

    The series reaches its mid-point next month. MacKay and company have rigidly defined the parameters of the rest of the series by the end of the second issue. There seems to be more than enough magic around the edges of the story to maintain the possibility of the unexpected sneaking up on the narrative from a number of different directions. Its neat. Its tidy. And its got just the right amount of chaos woven into its heart. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 12, 2023

    'Mary Jane & Black Cat' #2 keeps up the same amazing energy that the feline thief enjoyed in her own solo series, but takes it up a whole other notch with the character dynamics as well as the fantastical setting and players added to the board. There is a powerful flow that moves through all pieces of work in this comic, creating something that is solidly amazing and fun from start to finish that is worth revisiting over and over till the next issue arrives.

    Between the splashy setting and wide array of conflicts (i.e. secrets between friends and who will rule hell), Mary Jane & Black Cat is a bona fide highlight of "Dark Web." Read Full Review

    This was another fun issue. I'm still not sold on Mary Jane having powers when they could have made a fighter with some help from tech from Tony, but here we are. The chemistry between the two characters really works. It was neat to see a villain show up from Jane Foster's books.

    Another entertaining issue.

    I don't like how Felicia's main focus is on how to tell MJ about her and Peter, but I can't blame MacKay too much for that.

    He can't focus on MJ either too much, since we still don't know what happened and MacKay can't talk about it.

    So it's as good as a tie-in like this could be, and none of it is thanks to Wells and Lowe.

    This is just pure speculation on my part. I have no inside info, and many of my predictions have been wrong in the past, so take this with a giant grain of salt.

    But I now believe that Mary Jane’s kids as seen in recent Amazing Spider-man issues are her biological, not step, kids. What makes me think that? In the latest MJ and Black Cat issue, Cat mentions MJ was gone for six months. MJ says yeah six months in such say that it leads me to believe she was in some dimension where time travels differently, so she had time to birth two kids. There may be some sort of variation on this, but you get my drift.

    Why would Marvel do this? Reason one, the editors are tools and don’t want a married Peter because he is unrelata more
