I was reading the titles at the time, and for those who don't know, this happened after the Clone Saga ended, and I think after Onslaught (Wasn't Ben Spider-Man during Onslaught anyway?). Peter and Nate had an alliance, and I guess that you can say that they were friends. I think that Nate found out that Peter was Spider-Man. I'm not sure how long the relationship lasted, but it was kind of cool. Does anyone know what bappened, or when they last encountered each other? This was also BEFORE Nate turned into an ultra-powerful Shaman like character and died. I think that its good for Peter to have some superhero friends. Other than the Torch. He used to be really close to Daredevil, but that seemed to fall by the wayside, especially with their secret identities intact (AGAIN!).
