    Shocking close to the first story arc full of interesting and clever twists.

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

    ‘Mary Jane And Black Cat’ #5 brings the title characters’ hellish journey to an end in an action-packed, double-crossing, heisty feisty, character-rich fashion. Another fantastic chapter for these characters and in the growing volumes of Black Cat adventures that we’ve gotten the past few years, keeping these characters in the spotlight they deserve.

    Mary Jane & Black Cat has followed a familiar heist mode that writer Jed MacKay has employed many times before, but the formula remains successful because of how the Black Cat miniseries and one-shots consistently build upon familiar Marvel Comics lore to develop characters and deliver twists; this comic is no exception. The friendship between Mary Jane and Black Cat is made to be far more dramatic and interesting after they’ve resolved their internal conflict – witnessing them play off of one another throughout the climactic battle and even afterward is thrilling and often humorous. There are plenty of excuses to showcase the sprawling legions of Limbo in battle within that climax, too, and it makes for some of the most fun, hellish images to emerge from “Dark Web.” Spider-Man fans won’t even miss the wallcrawler when these two share the page, and MacKay once again leaves readers craving more Black Cat (and Mary Jane) tales.

    Mary Jane and Black Cat fight their way through to Belasco in Limbo and pull off some trickery to unseat him from his throne. Yeah, probably should have read the rest of this storyline but this is fun enough. I liked how casually they left their ally some giant purple demon fight everyone by himself to go confront Belasco and then let him take over when they can’t be bothered ruling.

    As I said this is most likely better if you have been reading along with the series, it was still fun enough even just at the end of the story and the next issue will be a new story arc so it is easy enough to pick it up from there and just go back and get a trade paperback for the other ones.

    These two characters work well together and I would like to see them meeting up with other characters in future stories, will have to see what they do.

    I would recommend this one if you like either of the characters but especially if you enjoy both of them together.

    Major Spoilers

    Even if you’re not happy with the status quo in the Spider-titles, Mary Jane and Black Cat #5 makes for an interesting ending to a story that literally no one asked for, throwing in one clever twist along with inconsistent art. I’m hoping that the new status quo in Limbo goes somewhere, but even if it doesn’t, MJ and Felicia have a brunch and mimosas to look forward to.
