The Superior Mary Jane Watson

If you've ever wondered about the secret Golden Age origin of Mary Jane Watson, well, you've hit the jackpot, Tiger!

Hmmm...that must be a misprint--it says Betty-Jane Waston, not Mary Jane. Still she is a tigress, so it must be her!!

By the way, do you know what the worst type of criminal is?

Yup--the "prison-breaker"!

Anyhow, now let's look at Mary Jane Watson:

Blonde?!? Hmm, maybe I am wrong here. Maybe it's Mary Jane's mother? (Please don't comment--I know already)

Let's look at her history:

Yup, she's a tigress, all right. And how did she end up in prison?

That'll do it.

Well, true to the title of the story (and the comic book itself), Mary Jane Betty-Jane Watson breaks out of jail!
And the first thing she does when she gets out?

Sheesh, she's just a little too bloodthirsty, you know?

[SPOILER ALERT--she gets recaptured]

 So forget about getting back together with Peter Otto--it looks like Mary Jane Betty-Jane is going to spend One (Very Long) Moment In Time--IN JAIL!!

From Prison Break! #4 (1952)

You know she's gotta be related to a Marvel character because she refers to herself in the third person.
