Early life

Mary Jane Watson was born in New York City to Madeline and Philip Watson on August 19, 1993. Mary Jane was raised with her older sister Gayle in Forest Hills by their parents where she was the next door neighbor of Peter Parker. Her childhood was a rough one, constantly on the end of verbal abuse alongside her sister and mother due to her father's battle with alcoholism. Mary Jane's sister left home when her high-school sweetheart Timothy Byrnes got her pregnant, a decision Mary Jane thought was ridiculous. Not long after her sister left home, her mother died in a car accident, leaving Mary Jane even more alone. One year after her mother died, Mary Jane met Peter Parker on top of the roof of their houses.

Her father's sister, Anna Watson was very kind to Mary Jane.

Peter Parker

"But something in her makes me gentle. Makes me shy. Makes me strong. Makes me happy to be alive. And maybe that's it. Maybe that's what it really comes down to. She makes me. Makes me whole... She completes me. So here's the thing, God... I know I complain a lot, and I know that you and me, we've got issues, but right now, just for tonight... Thank you for her. Thank you. "
Peter Parker about Mary Jane Watson[src]
"Sometimes… more often than I would ever admit, I come close to losing in the biggest way possible. Out there, if I ever gave up, even for a second, it would all be over. But it’s hard. I get tired. I get worn. Do you know what keeps me going? I know that I have to get home to you. I have to walk through that door… I have to, because it’s a promise I made to you, and one I want to keep. If it weren’t for experiencing life with you, and through you, there would be no reason to do what I do. If you believe that I am making this world a better place, then you must know that you are the one I am trying to make it better for."
Peter Parker to Mary Jane Watson[src]
"People see me swinging around skyscrapers and they think I'm pretty special. But it's not me. It's her. It's always been her."
Peter Parker about Mary Jane Watson[src]
"Thing is-I love him. I love him so much I can’t even think of a way to properly express it to you, you know? It’s in my skin. I can actually feel it in my skin."
―Mary Jane Watson about Peter Parker[src]
