For [personal profile] stubbleupdate who can't remember Jane appearing before

Jane first appears in Ultimates 2 #2 where Mark Millar kind of uses her as a Gnostic Mary Magdalene figure to Thor's Jesus and we are meant to contrast her with how the other 'disciples' just don't understand what Thor represents.

And then Loeb starts on the Ultimates. Jane disappears completely in favour Valkyrie. This seems to have irked Mark Millar considerably who brought her back again in Ultimate Avengers vs Ultimates with no mention of Valkyrie or that whole episode at all.

The scene has no relevance to the plot at all but Millar is making a point especially by saying 'it just seems so out of character'. Considering how 616 Jane has been bashed about at Marvel, good on Mark Millar for telling everyone how its going to be.

Bonus Marvel 1985 by Mark Millar because its here I get the feeling he is a significant Jane-ite.

Marvel 1985 is basically about the average reader becoming a part of the Marvel universe. It focuses on a father and son whose lives are falling apart when the fantasy they read about starts to bleed through. So the father grew up had a crush on Nurse Jane when he was young because her uniform was hot, he grew up to marry a police woman who shares a striking resemblance to her.

When his son grows up to write comics he gives his father his happily ever after
