Spiderman comic or movie fans don’t blame us for this one, we are merely the conveyors of information. It looks as though Marvel have taken a walk on the wild side with their new Spider-Man Reign comic series. In an issue that was published in 2007, Mary Jane, Spider-Mans love interest, got killed off. The above title to this fact is what actually went to print. Mary Jane was killed by Spider-Mans radioactive sperm. Needless to say, many fans were not very impressed with what had transpired. I mean seriously… What were they thinking?
How did Spider-Man kill Mary Jane with radioactive sperm?
While the actual text written in the book does not specifically say that it was Spider-Mans radioactive sperm that killed Mary Jane, it certainly does allude to it as he prime cause of death. In the book it says: “Oh God, I’m sorry! The doctors didn’t understand how it happened! How you had been poisoned by radioactivity! How your body slowly became riddled with cancer! I did. I was… I am filled with radioactive blood. And not just blood. Every fluid. Touching me… loving me… Loving me killed you!” As you can see from the written word from the comic book, it doesn’t specifically mention sperm once, but unless Mary Jane was a vampire the only other logical option left is saliva.
While it is certainly possible that it was saliva that lead to MJ’s cancer and death, certain undertones in the text point to sperm as the cause of her death. Whether or not the writers, directors or producers intend on including this interesting facet in any upcoming Spider-Man movie remains unanswered. I bet if they do include it, it will cause massive outrage, yet still cause a massive amount of curiosity amongst the viewing public, this writer included.
