Spi­der-Man #42

Comic Heroes - - Feature -

If that first cover is iconic, then so must be the fi­nal panel of Amaz­ing Spi­der-Man #42 in 1966, where a gog­gleeyed Peter Parker (and the reader) claps eyes for the first time on the too-cool-for-school red­head who says “Face it, tiger… You just hit the jack­pot!” Peter had been avoid­ing her for months be­cause his Aunt May had been try­ing to set them up with each other, and the big re­veal of Mary Jane as a clas­sic ’60s It girl sent him into a tail­spin. MJ even­tu­ally be­came his on-off lead­ing lady, af­ter plat­inum blonde Gwen Stacy (more about her later).
