(Moon Knight I#33 (fb) - BTS) - Joy Mercado was a reporter for the Daily Times. In 1967 (topical!) she covered the war in Indochina. In recent times, she wrote a popular series of articles on Daredevil and police detective Flint.

(Moon Knight I#33) - For her article series "Titans of Our Times," Joy set out to meet Druid Walsh, a notorious strongman living in a rough part of town. She brought him the "Olympus Room" at the prestigious restaurant "the Mount" for dinner, and seemed to be interested in him, but once she had learned all that she needed for her article, she abandoned him. The article she ran on Druid Walsh the next day called him a "dumb thug." She was going to write about Moon Knight for her next piece, and got her request to him through Lt. Flint, but when Moon Knight came to confront her at the Daily Times, Druid Walsh appeared, angry at her article and for feeling like he had been led on. Thinking she preferred men like Moon Knight to him, he beat up Moon Knight and took Joy hostage. Walsh brought her back to the Olympus Room with explosives, intending to destroy them both, but Moon Knight came to Joy's rescue and defeated Walsh. Afterwards, he angrily confronted Mercado over her articles, telling her that next she should investigate the myth of the "uninvolved reporter."

(Spectacular Spider-Man Annual#5) - Joy Mercado joined the Daily Bugle as an investigative reporter. As she rushed to her first story at the criminal court, she collided with the Daily Bugle's freelance photographer, Peter Parker, and dragged him along on her assignment. During the drive, she and Peter got to know each other "intimately" as the taxi driver's driving style threw them against each other. The case Joy was covering, however, reached a snag after the death of one of the participants. While pursuing a new lead, she lost contact with Peter in a street brawl and got an interview with a young man named Sammy wanting to be a member of a street gang. Sammy, however, was killed by a stray bullet during a gang war between street gangs.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#108) - Joy attended the funeral of Captain Jean DeWolff who had been struck down while in duty by the Sin-Eater.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#111) - Joy worked at an assignment on her computer as Kathryn Cushing gave Peter an assignment writing an editorial on Macchio's Nightclub in Greenwich Village. Bummed about the boring story, he turned to Joy for solace and they headed for the nightclub together. A shooter in the crowd attempted to kill the Beyonder, but critically wounded the Old Master, a sensei turned musician. Joy ran for cover as Peter changed to Spider-Man to investigate.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#112) - Returning Peter's camera to him, Joy stole a kiss from him under the mistletoe in the Daily Bugle for Christmas. 

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#113) - Joy and Kathryn Cushing, editor of the Daily Bugle, talked Peter into getting an interview from Ernie Popchik about an incident where he fired a gun on the subway.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#115) - Pursuing a news story, Joy witnessed a parent, Mr. Woolcot, punching his son's teacher, Mr. Estevez. Spider-Man charged in expecting trouble, but Woolcot tossed them all out of his building. As Joy departed with Mr. Estevez, Peter Parker raced up to join them for lunch.

(Web of Spider-Man I#16) - Joy was moved by JJJ to find stories for NOW Magazine. She and Peter were sent to Temple Corners, Virginia to report a story on a major factory down there that had shut down. Their arrival in the city was not warmly welcomed as an unruly mob confronted them for nosing around. Joy even asked Peter why he was holding back after he had proved he could protect himself from the street gang earlier. Escaping the mob, she chanced upon Charla Hanks offering to hide them. Hanks revealed to Joy that the ejected employees were being paid to look the other way on the lay-offs. She, Peter and Charla were then captured by men in costumes and taken by force to a secret underground complex. Losing contact with Peter, she was then surprised to see Spider-Man underground with them as a man arrived in armor calling himself Magma arrived to take down Spider-Man. 

(Web of Spider-Man I#17) - Using Spider-Man’s arrival as a distraction, Joy tried to flee with Charla but was struck unconscious for the attempt. She learned the facility was financed by the Roxxon Oil Federation. Charla’s gifted son Seth was being used to help develop cheap power from geothermal sources. Placed into a holding cell with Peter, Joy just managed to escape the cell with a knife she had secreted into the complex. During a repeat confrontation between Spider-Man and Magma, Joy led Charla and her son to the surface as a stray blast from Magma brought down the whole facility and destroyed it. As local rescue squads came to the disaster scene, Joy started wondering where Peter was.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#279) - Behind National Guard barricades at the ruined Roxxon base, Joy realized she had to drop the Roxxon story as her interest shifted to whether Peter Parker was dead or if he was trapped underground in the destroyed base.

(Web of Spider-Man I#18) - At the Daily Bugle offices, Joy and JJJ listened as Peter explained his escape and return to New York City from Virginia.

(Web of Spider-Man I#19) - Joy and Peter were given another assignment in London, England to cover a speech by Margaret Thatcher on the terrorism in Northern Ireland. Joy went shopping to prepare for the trip.

(Web of Spider-Man I#20) - On their arrival in London’s Heathrow Airport, Joy and Peter experienced a terrorist bombing in the airport terminal. Joy sent Peter around to get some shots during the terrorist attack as he instead quelled the disturbance incognito without becoming Spider-Man. He didn’t get any action shots as she filled him in on the reason of the political instability. Following a night of fine dining, Joy met with her informant the next day in order to secretly receive classified Roxxon information before covering Thatcher’s speech

(Web of Spider-Man I#21) - On the ferry to Dublin, Ireland, Joy noticed Peter might be coming down with a cold as he reflected on an incident where a cold nearly ruined a chance he had as Spider-Man to bring a criminal to justice.

(Web of Spider-Man I#22) - Driving into Belfast, Joy and Peter became trapped in a terrorist skirmish and the British army. After being briefly detained, they proceeded to Belfast where Joy voiced her suspicion of a connection between Roxxon and the Black Hoods in Ireland. She and Peter hesitantly concealed Liam who was hiding from the Black Hoods. After receiving his story at a local pub, she and Peter departed and were abducted by the Black Hoods themselves and taken to Roxxon where one of its directors, Ian Forbes, revealed that Roxxon was supplying the Black Hoods its technology with defective military hardware. Liam appeared to escort them to safety as Peter went back as Spider-Man to get proof of Roxxon’s involvement as Spider-Man.

(Web of Spider-Man I#23) - Returning to New York, Joy accused Parker of being unprofessional. To explain the appearances of Spider-Man around Parker, she formed the opinion that Spider-Man had been tipping Parker off to potential action spots in order to split the money from the photos. She even went so far as to call him lazy for using the wall-crawler to further his career. In New York, JJJ chewed them out for their sizable expense account but recanted when he saw the pictures from the Roxxon story. 

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#122) - Joy and Peter joined forces to get a back-story on a baby that Spider-Man had turned over to the hospital. They later discovered that the infant was the son of Brendan Doyle (The Mauler) as he attacked the hospital trying to get custody of it.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#298) - Joy ran into Peter at the Bugle after Robbie turned him down on photo assignments. She told him not to sit around for assignments and to go out and find them as she revealed to him about a foreign arms shipment being unloaded in New York City. Wanting to cover it but indebted to covering an execution, she asked Peter to photograph it and take a few notes she could turn into an article so they can split the story fee.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#146) - Joy received a tip on twenty associates of the Kingpin who were killed at the Starlight Room, a restraunt she had often attended. Glory Grant approached her wondering if it was Phil Urich on the phone that J. Jonah Jameson of whom wanted to speak to at the moment. She watched as JJJ clashed with editor Kate Cushing for running a headline about poltergeists just before the events of Inferno.

(Web of Spider-Man I#47) - While drinking coffee in a café, Joy and Phil Urich noticed Glory Grant with Eduardo Lobo. They were distracted by a escalator ripping itself apart as the events of Inferno come closer.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#147) - Tending to the wounded employees as the events of Inferno raged around the Daily Bugle building, Joy watched as Spider-Man wandered on to the floor and collapsed. As demons broke inside once more, she improvised a weapon and took out her hostilities out on the creatures.

(Web of Spider-Man I#48) - In the wreckage of the Daily Bugle from Inferno, Joy and Phil tended to Spider-Man’s injuries, but he woke up experiencing shellshock from his battles with the demons and mistook them for demons.

(Web of Spider-Man I#51) - In the absence of Betty Brant, Joy Mercado pulled the Bugle’s file on the Kingpin for the Chameleon posing as JJJ. The file turned out to be missing as Glory Grant surrendered it to Eduardo Lobo.

(Amazing Spider-Man I#318) - Joy lent an ear to Peter as he lamented no longer being able to sell his Spider-Man photos to JJJ. She told him forget freelancing to accept photo assignments, but JJJ busted that idea as well. Neither of them was aware that the Chameleon had replaced JJJ.

(Spectacular Spider-Man II#152) - Mercado started watching Glory’s apartment as she feared for her in her relationship with Eduardo Lobo.

(Web of Spider-Man I#53) -  Joy treated Peter to coffee in order to confide in him her concern over Glory Grant and her connection to Eduardo Lobo. Peter promised her that he would check into the relationship.

(Web of Spider-Man I#54) - Mercado and Nick Katzenberg appeared at Fisk Tower in the aftermath of the Lobo Brothers attack on the Kingpin’s organization. The police showed them to an animatronic dummy of the Kingpin used to affect his escape. She also ducked Katzenberg’s lame sexist advances.

Graviton, meanwhile, attacks the Bugle and lifted it off its foundation looking for Spider-Man during "Acts of Vengeance."

In the wreckage left behind by Gravitron’s departure, rescue workers pulled Spider-Man out to safety as Katxenberg snapped pictures and claimed that the web-spinner was stomped by his own partner, practically accusing Spider-Man and Graviton of working together. Joy snapped and snatched Katzenberg’s camera threatening him with bodily harm for the unsubstantiated crack. 

(Web of Spider-Man I#59) - Joy Mercado was in attendance as Thomas Fireheart moved in as publisher of the Daily Bugle and ushered in a more balanced, even-handed positive form of advocacy journalism.

Comments: Created by Doug Moench, Kevin Nowlan, Carl Potts, Brent Anderson, Joe Chiodo, and Bill Sienkiewicz.

Sort of described as Gwen Stacy with the effervescence of Mary Jane Watson and the bravado of Lois Lane, Joy Mercado seemed to replace the supporting character of Debra Whitman who had appeared randomly through Spider-Man previously.

Somewhere between Web of Spider-Man I#23 and Amazing Spider-Man I#297, Joy seems to change her attitude about Peter and Spider-Man. Previously accusing him of using Spider-Man to further his career, she seemingly lets up on him as if she's deduced that he's Spider-Man, but this is unsubstantiated.

Interesting note about Joy Mercado; the IRA/Northern Ireland storyline that they did with her around Web#22 or so was (per an article on David Micheline, the writer) cut short due to negative publicity. The storyline, possibly mocked by some as "Spidey's Game" (a play on the IRA thriller Harry's Game and its media adaptations), was also denigrated by Garth Ennis in an interview with Comics Values Montly.
