    Shocking penultimate chapter that leaves everything ready for a heart attack ending.

    It is full of details and well-achieved aerial battle sequences, where they show a gloomy and terrifying world.

    ‘Mary Jane And Black Cat’ #4 moves the protagonists closer to the conclusion of their Dark Web/Limbo adventure, continuing to dig into the deep emotional and character well that has supported Black Cat’s various series so well the past few years. Slick, smooth, colorful, deep, powerful, are just a handful of words to describe how great this issue and series are as a whole.

    The inevitable confrontation between Mary Jane and Black Cat finally arrives in Mary Jane & Black Cat #4 and resolves exactly in the fashion that most well-attuned readers might expect, but the issue succeeds in how it meets reader expectations, not in defying them. It speaks well to the venture that all of the relationships in this issue hold some authentic appeal, even the strained alliance with the demon S’ym. But whatever charms the straightforward-backstabber holds, they pale in comparison to a genuine portrayal of friendship between the eponymous heroines. They speak bluntly and with passion, and all of that is naturally converted into a thrilling display of superhero style amidst a dramatic battle. It’s a great fusion of familiar drama with ludicrous stakes that feels true to Spidey comics and both of the characters involved. That this issue is resolved just in time for the pair to go out of the frying pan and into the fire promises an excellent finish to this outstanding miniseries.

    The core of this issue discusses the difficult conversations we have to have. MacKay really brings to light how guilt over a situation can really impact the potential in our connections. Did I have Mary Jane Watson being able to bring back dead limbo demons with god-like powers on my 2023 bingo card? No, however, I am absolutely living for a fun moment of her being the hero.
