When the all-new INVINCIBLE IRON MAN title was announced, there was a bit of information that was teased.
There will also be a new surprising supporting cast member who is a major Marvel character who hasn't been in Tony's life before.
Beginning with INVINCIBLE IRON MAN #4, Mary Jane Watson is becoming part of the title's supporting cast.
“We were at one of our glorious Marvel publishing retreats and certain characters got brought up, sometimes almost accidentally, and I found out that nobody had anything going on with Mary Jane,” recalls Bendis. “I sat with that for a while and I always go to this place in my head where I [wonder] what the most interesting thing I would like to see that character do now and it fell right into the ideas I was already cooking for Tony Stark.”
It makes sense that they know each other. She did live at Avengers Tower when Peter was part of the team. But that was before things...changed in Brand New Day. So who knows how much they remember? This will definitely make things interesting.
INVINCIBLE IRON MAN begins in October written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by David Marquez. Mary Jane comes on board in December.
