Mary Jane's Compromising Position

The fan boys already know all about the scandal surrounding Mary Jane (Spidey's girlfriend) that is being shouted about in blogs and certain media outlets.

And no, I'm not talking about what we all learned watching SPIDER-MAN 3:

1) That Kirsten Dunst apparently doesn't have a stylist, or if she does she SERIOUSLY pissed him off during the filming of this movie.

2) That there were no gay men working on the set with balls big enough to say, "Miss Thang, what is UP with your ratty-assed hair?!?!?"

3) And that Kirsten has never heard the words "conditioner," "shampoo" or "hairbrush" in her life!


No, I'm talking about a recently released statuette of Mary Jane by Sideshow Collectibles that... well, instead of describing why it's controversial, I'll just show you a few pictures of the statuette (which according to Sideshow's web site is now "SOLD OUT" but is priced at $124.99)...



Wow. What art, huh? I call it...

"Subservient Mary Jane Washes Peter's Spidey Suit While Begging To Take It Up The Ass"

The designer of the piece, Adam Hughes, defends the statuette as being a playful, pin-up rendition of Mary Jane discovering Peter's Spider-Man costume.

But how many of women do the laundry with their butt in the air, pushing out their 38 Triple D's and sporting a pearl necklace? A PEARL NECKLACE, Adam! Come on!


Let's see it from another... wait a minute... is there a rip in her...



Yep, there's even a RIP in the ASS of her JEANS! Are you TRYING to start a riot, Adam?


Luckily, some bloggers have been designing retaliations to the Mary Jane misogyny by placing Peter in the same situation. Like this one...


But this one is my personal favorite. THIS definitely puts Peter Parker where Mr. Hughes thinks Mary Jane should be.



Now, THAT is a statuette I would pay $124.99 for! 'Nuff said.

That goes way beyond the realm of tacky.

Whim - WAY beyond tacky! Well into the realm of "offensive."

Huh...not sure what to say about that.

Spotted at IML this weekend - one boy in a full-out Spiderman suit, complete with hood and face mask, another with a Spiderman shit, coupled with leather chaps. Apocalypse or merely a merging of drag-stylings? Hmmm....

Master Aaron - There is a whole, new "lycra-loving" sub-set of gay men that has taken shape. Some like speedos, some biker's shorts and large number of them love to dress up like superheroes and show off a big pouch.

I'm never one to say no to a "big pouch" but I'm sure the "Old Guard" does not take kindly to people who wish to add "lyrca" to "leather, rubber, denim, military or motorcycle needed for admittance."
