He is totally NOT wishing the same, M.J.
True dat. He is, instead, chasing a muscular, leotard-clad man across the rooftops of San Francisco. Now sit back and draw your own conclusions.
Good god. When I woke up this morning I thought today might be the day we are awarded a slight nugget of information. Perhaps Kingpin's Daredevil assasination plan would be revealed or maybe Daredevil would explain why he kicked Spider-Man so hard he screamed "UNNHH!" But nope, instead we get a Mary Jane thought bubble for Valentine's Day. Does her whole life revolve around Peter? Doesn't she have anything better to do than lie in bed all day and look at framed pictures of her husband? "Here I am, chasing Daredevil." You don't fucking say.
So now, today, it's Valentine's Day? So does that mean that it's been Valentine's Day since Peter arrived in SF last Thursday? Is it going to be President's Day in about 90 seconds?
Their relationship has the emotional depth of a puddle. What really irritates me is that she came back into the story unexpectedly. Peter is mid flight after exchanging blows with Darevil. He's nowhere near a phone so she had to intrude and break up the action via worried thought bubble. "Wish you were here, Tiger." Put a sock in it MJ.
THis is the worst strip of the sory so far! FIrst, we only get two panels. Second, one of the panels is mopey M.J. Jesus, do people really miss each other that much? I could see if Peter was in the militry overseas for months but it's only been a few days. Talk about co-dependency. The comments above are hilarious! THats a good point, Octo, has this entire story been set on Valentine's Day?
Maybe Peter's plan all along was to avoid the pressures of Valentine's Day with a trip to San Francisco.
"Mary Jane and her fancy dinner 'reservations!' I told her I could make her a nice web hammock outside of any restaurant in New York, but noOOOoo."I'm reminded of the very first Spidey adventure JPX treated us to, when MJ screwed everything up by taking a taxi to her man's superhero brawl and was predictably taken hostage. Except this time the hostages are us.
