REPOST: Len Wein shows Peter and Mary Jane's rocky start

In a tribute to the late, great Len Wein, here is a repost of some pages from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #151 to #153 with art by Ross Andru. It takes place right after the original Spider-Clone story, when Peter and Mary Jane got more serious and started "officially" dating.

But all serious superhero relationships hit that one stumbling block: when one of you has to run out of a party to fight a super-villain.

I am not saying this looks like a romance but...

I recently read Gerry Conway's original "The Amazing Spider-Man" run (the one that killed off Gwen Stacy and had the original Clone Story-Arc) and... am I the only one that sees this?

Amazing Spider-Man #25: "Police & Thieves"



In Spider-Man's Civil War II tie-in, we saw Clayton Cole become Clash again because of people mishandling a Ulysses prediction. In the recent ASM #25, we catch up with what he's gotten himself up to since...

Amazing Spider-Man #25: "Mutts Ado About Nothing"



"I fault creators who do this, on all levels — comics and TV and the whole thing — if you want to write adults: fine. Go write adults. If you want to write adult Peter Parker, it’s great. There’s this whole other level to him, he doesn’t always need to be in high school. There’s loads of things he can contribute as a college student, as an adult. It’s all super interesting. But they keep him in high school, and they just don’t write him like a high schooler and that’s frustrating. And teenagers, they’re so weird. They’re so bizarre. And why are you missing this wonderful opportunity to make him [someone] who’s sometimes overly self-conscious, sometimes has no, uh, what’s it called? No… filter! And just this weird ricocheting of emotions always at full blast all the time." - Hannah Blumenreich

This is from an eight-page short story in the recent oversized Amazing Spider-Man #25. Writing and pencils both by Hannah Blumenreich.
