The couple soon announced that they were going to see a show in town and said that they might stop back by later.

May Parker

May Parker was a mutant, born with metallic claws that could extend from her knuckles. Other than that, she was an elderly woman who loved to care for her nephew Peter and his wife, Mary Jane. During one of their visits, May tried to coax them into staying for dessert but they opted to see a show in town. Before they could leave, May unsheathed her claws and announced that she'd be so disappointed if they didn't stay to eat some pie. Newly motivated, Peter and MJ decided to stay.

 May had metallic claws that could spring from her knuckles.
