May "Mayday" Parker is one of those characters that I have desperately tried to get into. The idea of a girl wearing Spider-Man's costume was such a novel idea to me. I couldn't believe it hadn't been done before. I remember discovering her on a Wizard Magazine cover while on vacation with my family. (I discovered Cassandra Cain in the same issue actually). Over the years I tried and tried to get into the comic but it just didn't stick. I always loved her design so I kept going back. Her fanbase was phenomenal though and her title was continually resurrected and rebooted. Even now, she's been a major player in the Spider-Verse storyline and the Petra Parker Spider-Girl in the Web Warriors cartoon plays homage to Mayday. Pretty good for a character that started off as a hypothetical one-shot in "What If...?" This figure is amazing. Hasbro has been knocking it out of the park with their Marvel Legends figures lately. My Spider-Lady shelf is positively exploding. Let's check out Mayday below!
Here are some images of Mayday from the comics.

Time for Some Group and Comparison Pics!
Here is Mayday with her wavemate, Ultimate Spider-Woman.
