Marvel Team-Up #134
Issue(s): Marvel Team-Up #134
Jack has been kept in his mansion by SHIELD, bathed in the neutro-mist that keeps his powers in check. This is to preserve his own life, since his powers are killing him. But he's gone a little nutty in isolation and has decided that SHIELD is keeping him a prisoner, and now that he's built up a tolerance to the mist, he decides to break out. And with that, a revelation that he had a relationship with Spider-Man supporting cast member Marcy Kane when they were both undergraduates.
So he shows up at her school while Peter Parker is there collecting items from his locker now that he's quit.
This is the first Jack and Marcy have seen each other since he disappeared with the accident that turned him into Jack of Hearts.
SHIELD is hot on Jack's tail. They are wearing "Uni-Lens Battle Armor" that Jack says "is a cruel mockery of my own condition" but i think was just Nick Fury's way of playing a joke on his agents.
Spider-Man misses the big SHIELD symbol on their helmets at first, and assumes they are the bad guys, so he jumps in to help Jack...
...but then realizes his mistake.
He tricks Jack of Hearts into a lab where he's opened up the gas valves, triggering an explosion that knocks Jack out. When he wakes up, Marcy volunteers to help him find a cure.
An end blurb touts the upcoming Jack of Hearts mini-series, where things for Marcy will take a weird turn.
