Miriam Sharpe in Part I of Marvel's Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude (1 March 2017).

Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude is a 2-issue comic mini-series set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it is a retelling of the events of Captain America: Civil War film (2016) from the point of view of Peter Parker (Spiderman).

Grieving mother Miriam Sharpe (played by Alfre Woodard in the film) makes an appearance in Part I of the series. Sharpe blames the death of her son on MIT alum Tony Stark (Iron Man) and confronts him at the Institute, where he has just delivered a talk. Their encounter forces Stark to rethink his views on the actions of the Avengers and to eventually sign the Sokovia Accords.

[Sharpe] managed to change Tony Stark's views on the Superhuman Registration Law by giving Stark her son's favorite toy, an Iron Man action figure, and became an advocate of Iron Man's stance on the law.
