> I just never saw it. She was just there. Go Tiger. I need to act. There there Peter. Oh boo hoo I hate this life. Let me smoke it away. Let me look sexy. I hate this life Peter. There there Peter. Let me look sexy. Look I got captured by a villian. Can someone name one good Mary Jane story in the past twenty years?

There were a lot of stories in which MJ shone during the marriage, starting of course with Kraven's Last Hunt just after the wedding and ending with the pre-OMD issues of Sensational Spider-Man (finishing off with the Annual). And that's not counting any Spider-Girl stories. Yes, she started smoking, but that was just once and did not last (and it happened during a period when writers and editors were actively trying to break Peter and MJ apart). Yes, she was captured by villains on a number of occasions (par for the course for a supporting character, just ask Aunt May), but she was able to get out of her predicament on her own e.g. with Jonathon Caesar and the Chaemeleon (who probably still has nightmares about her swinging a baseball bat). But given the way you dismiss every single thing she did over the past two decades I'd say there's probably nothing she could have done that would have pleased you.
