The Last Word on the Mary Jane Statue...?



The blogosphere was flush this month with outrage on the over the Mary Jane cheesecake statue created by Illustrator Adam Hughes… Here’s a page that links to many of the blogs that have something to say about it. The short of it is, many women don’t like the combination of Mary Jane lookin’ all hoochie Mama and doing laundry. On the other side of the issue many male comic books fans defend the statue as simply playful and the outrage an overreaction. As can be read here. I guess it all comes down to context.

Me? I think everybody is ridiculous personally.

The Mary Jane Statue controversy has made national news:

It is funny that the anchor is shocked by the statue but can’t get enough of Feedback’s Butt.

I offer the middle road. How about the Mary Jane Zombie statue?

Mary Jane is not a zombie.

She could've been a zombie had zombie Spiderman not eaten her, and Aunt May.

YOU'RE the one that got me going on Marvel Zombies. Perhaps you should brush up?

Although seriously - I have to ask- have critics of this statue actually READ Spiderman?

MJ spends half the time in the shower or lounging in a nightie for God's sakes.

People are so annoying...

Mary Jane Zombie. All I can think of is the Mr. Show mock of Marylyn Manson: "Norma Jean Monster".

Didn't she die from radioactive spider spunk?

Not exactly, it happened in the Dark Knight rip-off called Spiderman Reign. So it’s in an alternate future. It’s still stupid though.

First statue looks cute, the second one looks so scary....

It is funny that you like the statue. Many American women hate it, calling it sexist. The gross picture is simply my creation inspired by the new marvel zombies comics.

I am interested in knowing what is just to the left of the given frame...
