Writing for the Nashua, N.H., Telegraph, Jen O’Callaghan and Sandy Bucknam debate one of the most important issues of our times: Which superhero girlfriend is cooler — Lois Lane or Mary Jane Watson?
Aside from that teeny, tiny flaw of not being able to place the bespectacled Clark Kent as her Man of Steel, Lois embodies so much of what I aspire to – a strong, independent woman with talent, intelligence, wit and ambition.
From what I’ve gathered from the “Spider-Man” films and a cursory search of the Internet, M.J. is a moderately successful actress and highly successful fashion model. She puts up a front as a party girl and famously told Parker on their first face-to-face meeting in “Amazing Spider-Man” No. 42, “Face it, tiger. . . . you just hit the jackpot!”
Oh, she’s modest, too? I guess Parker really did hit the jackpot.
It’s a tough call if we’re talking about All-Star Superman Lois versus Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane MJ. But if it’s “regular universe” Lois versus “regular universe” MJ … I don’t care.
