    Personally,
    I think that as far as a relationship goes for Peter Parker, why not pair him with Betty Brant? That was a relationship that could have taken off following the aftermath of OMD/OMIT.

    As for the Black Cat, I always felt that Spider-Man's relationship with a female super hero should include the following as an alternate to the Black Cat. The heroines are as follows:

    Ms. Marvel
    Silver Sable
    Spider-Woman
    She-Hulk
    Psylocke
    Black Widow

    While I don't mind seeing MJ and Peter getting back together, I feel that Marvel should have used that moment to rebuild Peter's relationship with Betty Brant as his girlfriend once again. On the Spider-Man/Peter Parker side, his heroine relationship should go beyond the Black Cat. And yet, we got 5 years worth of wasted relationships for Peter.

    Personally, I think that Peter Parker x Jessica Drew make for a better relationship than Spider-Woman x Hawkeye. I don't buy the notion that Spider-Man should not date a super heroine because it takes the away the Peter Parker side. They don't want to go there because it's too much of a distraction to the types for stories that they want to write about.

    Don't you agree?:BA

    I've always dug this pic of her from back in the day. She was all sexed up and in full 60's Mad Men mode. I wish I had that waiting for me when I walk into my apartment.

    Typical Parker luck.....my left nut. :o

    It would have been nice to have seen more quality time between Peter x Betty. The other love interest that never got the chance to develop was Joy Mercado.

    Here is her profile:

    Besides Joy, a lot of folks have forgotten about Robin Vega who could have been a close friend of Peter Parker if they kept her around in the same manner as the Black Cat. Here is her profile:

    On the superhero side, it should have been Spider-Woman x the Black Widow as part of Spider-Man's world as frequent guests respectively as often as the Black Cat. On rare occasions, it could be the She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel and Psylocke. I exclude Silver Sable because she's dead until they say otherwise. These heroines are alternates to the Black Cat.

    Imagine on the type of stories that we might have gotten if those characters were a part of Peter's as much as Mary Jane and Aunt May.

    Ironwood is from the 80s?

    Debra made an appearance in one arc post Civil War writing her biography, then she's gone again

    It would have been cool to Crissy Ironwood return, along with Debra Whitman. The only difference is that Crissy might reveal herself to be Mystique herself. Imagine if Peter's ex-girlfriend was Raven Darkholm all this time?:jedi

    Might not be out of the question because Chris Claremont created her to begin with. He the same guy who made Mystique a household name. It might have been interesting if he had had the opportunity to place Mystique in Spider-Man world as either an ally or enemy. Not to mention that Graydon Creed was working alongside the Kingpin to smear Spider-Man's name to the media through JJJ Communications.

    Regarding Debra, I first notice her in the Fox Kids Spider-Man TAS as Flash's girlfriend. Never knew that she had an interest in Peter Parker. What's ironic about Spider-Man TAS is that FOX never invested the kind of money to make the animation as superb as they had done with Batman TAS. For a weekly cartoon, I suppose that they were not willing to pay the kind of money that was spent on Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion.

    They already stated in ASM that they could not find the bodies of The Rhino or Silver Sable, translated from comic speak: neither of them is dead.

    That was Mary Jane. Betty didnt appear in that issue.

    I always assumed that the reason that so much of the animation and dialog was recycled in the 90s cartoon was because Marvel was bankrupt at the time.

    True. The company was in the Wrong Hands at the time. McAndrews and Forbes owned Marvel, under the watchful eye of Ron Pearlman. Owned the comapany but didn't know what to do with it.

    ....and here i thought i was the only one who thought betty should have gotten back with pete. i recall after pete had outted himself during civil war, betty admitted to still having feelings for him. she kept silent cuz she respected pete's marrage to MJ. i loved that scene so much.

    It would be nice to see Jennifer Walters(Human form) and Peter Parker establish a friendship in the same manner as he has with Carol Danvers and Jessica Drew. Another relationship that would be interesting to see yet again are Silver Sable and Black Widow towards Spider-Man.

    Another personal favorite that I would love to see are is Psylocke x Spider-Man working together.
