What can you suggest to read for the character of Typhoid Mary.

The most obvious example were the issues from the original Daredevil series, #254-257, 259-263.

@Fuchsia_Nightingale: Ew ew ew ew ew. Worst recommendation ever. She's handled so poorly in that!!

@Hawkeye446: Other than the Daredevil issues, theres a bunch of Marvel Comics presents stories and then the Typhoid series. When the character isnt written by Noncenti, it's usually not worth reading. what they did with her in Avengers: the Initiative was interesting though.

Ahhh, thanks then!! *bows* I have a very good feeling she will become an automatic favourite of mine.

As far as I know this is the best it gets for Typhoid.She doesn't have alot of material.

If you like the character, make sure you skip her appearance in the Bendis Daredevil run. She was utterly neutered of any interesting qualities in that run. That was one of several reasons I couldn't find the affection for Bendis' Daredevil run that so many seem to swear by.
