I was reading some old issues of spidey and it really got to me how mature the Spidey/MJ relationship.It may not even be possible to top that relationship but who do you think could come close or serve as a good replacement?

Stoic
He needs someone with powers capable of defending herself against the threats that he faces. This is why Mary Jane left him. She would also need to be able to cope with his personality, and intellect, so I think the best woman/women for him would be, either Dazzler, Monet St. Croix, or Misty Knight. All of which would benefit by being married to Peter, at least in terms of fame. Marvel has a huge stable of characters that rarely see the light of day, and when they do they usually come back out being more powerful than they were when they were created.

Didn't mean to rant, but yeah, I think that those 3 and perhaps maybe Kitty Pryde would make good partners for him. I'd also like to add the mental stability that they possess, and that it would be a horrible idea if Marvel went with the Black Cat and Spider Man love story.

Endless Mike
Any woman aware of his history with the opposite sex would be smart to stay as far away from him as possible

JayDaDon
Well the same should apply to Daredevil(x1000) Batman, Kyle Rayner and countless others lol.

But yeah, I agree with Stoic. I always thought a relationship with Jessica drew would be so much fun. It was also clear during the period of MJ's apparent "death" that Jill Stacy wanted Peter badly. They could always bring her back and have peter struggle with the fact that she's Gwen's cousin. Then there's Silver sable who admitted she has feelings for him. I also agree about the black cat. She should remain the sidechick lol

Sable is a good pick. Jessica would just be hilarious. But if I had to choose someone it'd be Ms. Marvel (or Captain or whatever name she goes by now). Several writers did a good job establishing a connection between the two. And although it wasn't romantic yet it was made clear than Carol likes Pete and I really enjoyed their chemistry.

JayDaDon
I was hoping you would find this thread Sam lol. What would you think of Jill stacy? I was surprised how much marvel was shipping the idea of that relationship even while MJ was still in the picture

JayDaDon
Or even a revisiting of the betty brant relationship could be seen interesting. They're both very different people now than when the first got together.

Valeria Richards shifty

Janet depending on how old she is this week

Jill Stacy comes with all kinds of baggage, dating back to the classic early Spidey stories. Perfect for Peter.
His love life should never be simple.

OnslaughtKILLS
Someone with powers. I feel like that dynamic is more interesting then a damsel in distress.

riv6672
She doesnt have to be the latter if she's not the former.
Thats lazy writing.

Which means its likely to happen, actually...

Actually I would love to see that too if he were going for a superpowered relationship.

Edit, she's probably around 10 years older. Maybe she's a cougar lol

Tbh I'd rather they left the Stacy family alone, it's already overly complicated as it is. "Gwen's cousin" would complicate it even more. If I had the power I'd retcon Gwen's affair with Norman as rape.

Psylocke

JayDaDon
^ Yup lol but that would probably never happen, he deserves it after all hes been through lol

Stoic
Janet is probably the same age. none of these people ever age. I mean look at Franklin Richards. He's is still a child after 30 years. Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) would probably never go for him. I was under the impression that she wasn't into the comedy routine that comes with Spider Man, but you never know.

SamZED
I don't know, it seemed to me Carol was more interested in Pete than the other way around even.
True, they never age.

JayDaDon
Yeah but they have age ranges they tend to stay around. I would say Pete is probably eternally 25-27, same with Human torch, iceman, kitty pride. They were the original kids or "sidekicks" and I would say Janet and those guys were around that 25-27 age when they got started. So based on her history she should be atleast mid 30's. Which wouldn't be bad either way for Pete.

SamZED
Well it looks like ASM 4 just introduced a new candidate.
