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.

All-New Wolverine #21 by David Lopez:

Spider-Gwen #21 by Kevin Wada:

Mighty Captain Marvel by Chris Samnee:

Iron Fist #4 by Stephanie Hans:

Unbelievable Gwenpool #17 by David Nakayama:

Punisher #13 by Dave Williams:

Alright, I legitimately laughed at that last one.

I would pay so much money for a comic series about Mary Jane arming up and assassinating Mephisto to get her marriage back.

I don't think just using MJ means they are trolling JQ though.

Much like the Gwen ones, my favorites are the ones that give her a unique costume inspired by one of the heroes, instead of just giving her that heroes costume.

Though she does rock that Punisher look.

If an alternate Mary Jane must follow the trend and become the next Marvel phenomenon, please let it be the Iron Fist version.

I love Captain Marvel MJ just kinda, y'know, shoving Peter aside ^^ "Don't worry citizen, I'll handle this!"

I love the first one so much, I'm stealing her for my roleplaying game 😁

MJPool is pretty good too...and while it would have been nice if the Captain Marvel & Punisher ones had different costumes, I love the scenes for both of them as well 😁😁

Given what people think of the Netflix Iron Fist series, maybe Mary Jane Watson SHOULD be the Iron Fist.

I speculate the Netflix Defenders series will reveal Stick trained Matt Murdock because he thought Matt was going to be the next Iron Fist. That's just speculation, though.

Considering what the main criticism was, i don't think making MJ Iron Fist would help.

I thought the main criticism was more the overall complete lack of charisma from the lead, once the show came out. I could barely make it beyond the first two episodes, I loathed Jones as Danny that much.

Well, yeah, also that it was a missed opportunity to cast an Asian lead. After the show came out some people were relieved they didn't because the writing is so awful, but yeah...they pissed the bed on that one.

The main one was not casting an Asian American actor for the role, which was around even before the show came out.

It being MJ instead wouldn't help, especially not with how they handled things in the show.

Of those, the Iron Fist one is my fave.

I love the design work on the Spider-MJ costume! Elementally similar to Spider-Gwen but not an exact copy. Maybe could be recoloured as that world's "Scarlet Spider"?

Also, let's just make Demon Punisher MJ a thing the way Gwenpool was grandfathered into continuity. She's amazing.

It sounds like it would be harder for her not to be an AU MJ though. Since Gwenpool ended up not being a Gwen Stacy.

Honestly, the only ones I really like is the Punisher and Wolverine one, the others all have something I don't like with the art style, be it posing, facial expression, or the... Interactions between the art styles of Mj's face and the rest of the cover.

I thought variants were for characters they're trying to push. Aside from that alternate reality Conway Spider-Book, is MJ'S even in any Marvel books anymore? I know she was "emergency backup Pepper Pots" for about five minutes before CW2 but I have no idea where she is now.

She is actually still appearing in Invincible Iron Man, helping Tony Stark's biological mom run Stark Industries while he's in his Carol induced Techno-Coma.
