Creators and Appearances


Alison Mongrain was hired by Norman Osborn in a scheme to acquire the then unborn child of Peter Parker and Mary Jane.[1]

To this end, she took a job at the Daily Grind coffee bar as a waitress. There, she added an unknown powder into a bowl of chicken gumbo, which was ordered by a very pregnant Mary Jane Parker. Mary Jane went into a very severe and complicated labor.

At New York Hospital, Mary Jane was greeted by Dr. Folsome, who told her that her regular doctor was out of town and that he would be delivering her baby. After the delivery, Mary Jane was worried when she realized the baby, named May, wasn't crying. Dr. Folsome gave Mary Jane his condolences and left the room with the rest of his staff... including Alison Mongrain.

Mongrain immediately left for the harbor, bringing a package with her. She spoke briefly with Norman Osborn. Osborn sent her to Europe and told her to make sure that the package was never seen again.[2]

Later, Osborn took control of the Daily Bugle by threatening J. Jonah Jameson's family. Osborn planned to use the Bugle to exonerate the Osborn name after Bugle reporter Ben Urich had written a book identifying Norman Osborn as the Green Goblin. Robbie Robertson took it upon himself to take the Bugle back from Norman.

Robertson's investigation led him to Paris and to Alison Mongrain. Alison considered using baby May Parker as blackmail against Osborn, and Norman considered Mongrain to be a loose end. To tie that end up, Norman implanted a painful mind control microchip into the back of the neck of Mark Raxton, the Molten Man. The chip would only stop causing Raxton pain once Alison was dead.

Once Robbie and Alison returned to New York, they were under constant attack from the Molten Man. Mongrain wanted to go to the Parker home to tell Peter an urgent message. The ground beneath her suddenly erupted, as the Molten Man emerged from the sewer. A block of concrete hit Alison in the stomach, badly hurting her. Suddenly realizing that the Molten Man was following the necklace that Osborn had given to Mongrain, Robertson threw it away, where the Molten Man destroyed it.[3]

Before she died of her injury, Alison finally told Mary Jane that "May" was still alive. Spider-Man confronted Osborn to find his infant daughter. Osborn told Peter that his daughter was dead. Ignoring him, Peter stormed into Osborn's hunting lodge, only to find that "May" was really his elderly Aunt May, who had supposedly died nearly a year before.[4]
