Top 10 Greatest Peter/Mary Jane Stories

Here at Superior Spider-Talk we have a great fondness for all the various female characters that have woven their way in and out of Peter Parker’s life over the years but there is no character we love more than Mary Jane. Who can resist the charms of a red-haired, party-going charmer like Mary Jane. The minute she burst into Peter’s life with a famously uttered line like “Face it tiger, you just hit the JACKPOT!” we all knew his life would never be the same.

So, we’ve compiled a list of what we believe to be the Top 10 Greatest Peter Parker/Mary Jane stories to ever grace the pages of any comic featuring the two. Criteria for this list include historical significance, artwork, creativity, and of course, our overall enjoyment of the arc. So, without further ado, we present our list.
