Amazing Spiderman #671 preview

ComicBookResources finally has the fight we've been waiting for. Mary "Tiger balm" Jane with spider powers vs. Carlie "Housewrecker" Cooper man-spider.

Or something like it.

As soon as I saw Carlie shed her "ooh, a dork-able beard of Peter-I-SOLD-MY-MARRAIGE-TO-THE-DEVIL-Parker" and show her true face, every time I see Mary Jane punch, kick, or take a piece of New York city and SWAT a spider I know she's hitting Carlie. Because my mind refuses to accept anything less.

You be the judge.

So, you were waiting for pages of Mary Jane stepping up and showing why she was the girl MEANT for Peter Parker, here she is.

Take THAT, Carlie!

Ramos, you HAVE to improve your art. Action looks good, but dang, those faces.i've seen more emotion on a Barbie doll.

That last panel... her face and pose are somehow awesome, hilarious, and horrifying all at the same time.

man, i hate the term homewrecker so much, and like, is it even applicable in this case?

mj looks fierce, tho.

I have to admit, it's really cool seeing MJ kick some ass. There's rumors of her being the new Scarlet Spider, and after seeing this...I kinda want it to be true. :O

Gah. This art. What is even going on in that first panel? I thought at first MJ was bursting out of a carapace but her body was still spider-shaped or something.

So what's the consensus? Is this Marvel giving fans what they want or...?

The only good thing I say for this art?: makes sense for MJ to be wearing the really open skirt, and Humberto doesn't go for the cheap tease (by these images).

Everything still looks like crap.

Gah! The art in the first panel! I can't tell what's going on below the waist!

But MJ kicking ass like this? Go, MJ, go! Totally awesome.

(LOL at Carlie "Homewrecker" Cooper.)

I for some reason expect tp see her get punished or yelled later by Peter at for punching around the giant spiders that used to be people.

Jesus. As much as I love the idea of a sexy, hip, barefoot babe like MJ flying around New York with her own spider-powers and making Carlie look bad, Ramos makes me feel so bad.

Okay can we have MJ take over the Spider-man title (like how Herc did Hulk) for a bit? Give her some time as a super hero then in a few months bring Peter back?

Showed it to a random passer-by.

I like Ramos' style most of the time, but this is not his best work.

Also, WOO! MJ!

Oh great, Liefeld possessed the body of the artist again, didn't he?

.... Okay Marvel... you tried to make MJ the fall girl for OMD in OMIT... now you made her the new Spider-Woman... but if she is going to be the benafactor of this arc... I will HATE!!

Maybe I'm overthinking this, but I find it annoying that Mary Jane somehow never understood "Great power, great responsibility" before now. But it is better than MJ thinking "Peter has a suicidal guilt complex" as she did in "THE OTHER: EVOLVE OR DIE." That wasn't very good.

I'm not really liking the art (the faces! OMG), but I'm just going to let it slide for now, because this scene is generally pretty awesome. Super-MJ to the rescue!!! :D

Wait, is MJ one of those backward-head zombies from Swamp Thing?

Huh. Never thought I'd see the Floating Head Doctor gag from Scrubs used again.

I should also add:

If it wasn't for Ramos' horrendous art, I honestly would have been interested in getting this story.

Organic web-shooters? Didn't someone on here come up with a theory that involved MJ accidentally ending up with some of Peter's pre-BND powers?

I hate to be negative (that's a lie), but this looks horrendous.

Neat. Takes me back to the Exiles' MJ who was an alt-universe Spider-Woman.
