Marvel June 2017: Mary Jane Variant Month

Don't think anyone's posted anything about this before, so here you go.

So much like the Gwen Stacy covers of June 2015, Marvel is publishing variants which place Mary Jane Watson in the place of various Marvel heroes this June, coinciding with the first issue of Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man.

The first announcement can be found here. More covers have since been released, though I don't think they've completed the set. I posted my favorites of the ones I found behind the cut.

X-Men: Millennial Visions



So I've already posted two of Marvel's Millennial Visions one-shots, which featured alternate reality/future versions of Marvel characters. However, the very first one published was centered entirely around the X-Men, and was so popular it not only got a sequel (which I've also posted scans from here) and the previously mentioned one-shots, it helped inspire the Exiles. In fact, Nocturne and her reality's X-Men first appeared here (though my scans seem to be missing her, sadly).

Hulk #4

hulk04cover

"The title She-Hulk evokes light-hearted stories about a Jennifer Walters who is at peace with herself and in full control of her powers. This isn’t that book. On the other hand, the title Hulk implies all of the baggage that comes with that comic’s 50+ year history—the ongoing battle with the monster within—and that’s why it’s more appropriate for this series. Jen went through major trauma in Civil War II, and Mariko and Nico’s story will deal with the fallout of that trauma—the anxiety and anger, sometimes self-destructive, that comes along with it. If there is light at the end of the tunnel, Jen is going to have to search hard for it, and she’s going to have to battle with some pretty big monsters—including the one within—to find herself again."
