She got that way because of an experiment Dr. Forrester did on her. There’s a fever that’s been going around New York that MJ catches. The experiment somehow messed with the water supply.

While fighting Spider-Man, she accidentally destroys the antidote and transforms into some hideous goblin-esque creature.
