    Keep in mind, the issue did just come out, and there might be people who don't want spoilers.

    spoilers:
    Regarding potential ups and downs, I'm a bit worried about the freakouts that are going to be inevitable here everytime anything is hinted at. I was going to say there will be freakouts any time a down is hinted at, but I think it'll also apply to every up.
    end of spoilers
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Yep, that's why I didn't put all my faith in the solicits and interviews, because I knew they had some secrets up their sleeves and wanted to wait to see what it would be in the actual issues, and all the reveals and story turns ended up being very surprising, in a good way. I'm all for them trying to keep as much as possible a surprise.

    Also, I think most people forgot before Superior Spider-Man was revealed to be about Doc Ock, the solicits and interviews they gave never once mentioned Otto, just a "darker, edgier Spider-Man".

    Seems this is a good week to be an MJ fan, she's shown back up in the newspaper strip today as well, giving Peter advise over the phone

    I said this same thing during Slott's run when I said Peter/MJ were on-again/off-again. Some people didn't believe me when I said they would be on-again someday. And I'm finding it ironic when other people don't believe me when I say they will someday be off-again.

    (And I love Peter/MJ!)

    Did Mattel sign an exclusive tie-up with WB/DC some time after the 80's? I don't remember seeing any recent Marvel heroine Barbies but there have been many DC heroine Barbies.

    No idea. I got it used on a sidewalk sale.

    It's actually Marvel who did an exclusive deal - their toys are Hasbro.

    Using eBay sold listings as a measure of what people are paying for it... About $30USD
    Using the Barbie Database/Price Guide... Low of $30USD, High of $45USD - http://www.barbiedb.com/ShowBarbie.aspx?barbieid=6090

    Nick Spencer answers some questions from the Crawl Space, here's what he said about Mary Jane

    Well…I can’t go FURTHER into details about what’s going on with them. I DO however love that people are really on board with it. The enthusiasm is great! I love writing about the two and as for Mary Jane I AM a fan of her, for sure. She is such an important character in comics and in Spider-Man’s history.

    Oh yeah, that makes sense.

    I like what I'm hearing. Dan Slott definitely respected MJ as a character and her place in the lore, but I don't think he would have gone so far as to say he's a fan of her like Spencer here.

    We'll have to disagree there. Dan often deconstructed her later stages of character development, critiquing stories like Parallel Lives

    Parallel Lives should be removed from canon.
