MJ and Felicia Reconnect in Marvel’s Jackpot and Black Cat #1 First Look

Marvel Comics has shared a first look inside Jackpot and Black Cat #1, which kicks off a new team-up series starring Mary Jane Watson and Felicia Hardy.

Due to launch next month, Jackpot and Black Cat teams writer Celeste Bronfman with artist Emilio Laiso. The four-issue limited series is not the first time Mary Jane and Black Cat have co-headlined a comic — though it is the first since MJ adopted her superhero alter ego of Jackpot. At this time, Marvel has revealed four uncolored preview pages from issue #1, in which Jackpot interrupts Black Cat’s latest score. The publisher has also revealed a new variant cover for the issue, which comes in addition to Adam Hughes’ main cover.

What is Marvel’s Jackpot and Black Cat about?

An official synopsis for Jackpot and Black Cat #1 reads as follows: “LUCK BE THE LADIES! The most exciting new hero in the Marvel U, JACKPOT, A.K.A. Mary Jane Watson, gets her first action-packed limited series as a super hero alongside the other best female character in comics, BLACK CAT! When someone blackmails Black Cat into a public and blatant crime spree, Jackpot comes to her aid! What classic Spider-Villain is behind the blackmail?! Someone with history with at least one of our titular heroines!”

“MJ’s been a hero since day one, and I’m so excited to continue her journey as Jackpot — this time with Felicia Hardy by her side!” Bronfman said when Marvel first announced the series. “Opposites attract, and I’ve always loved the push and pull of their friendship. Expect them to butt heads through heists, betrayals, and the unexpected!”

Jackpot and Black Cat #1 goes on sale Wednesday, March 27 from Marvel Comics.
