        Seems that Norah is going to be Peter's new love interest. The preview at newsarama seems to suggest that. Norah seems so flirty with Peter despite the fact that she recently hooked up with Randy. Looks like Peter is in for some trouble when MJ returns. Plus, having a female roomate(even one who hates Peter) will not help matters much for Peter's love life.


        Indeed. Out of all the new females in Peter's life since Brand New Day start, Norah is definitely the most dynamic and entertaining of the bunch. You just know that when MJ comes back, these two are really going to set the comic on fire over their fight to win Peter's affections. Although, considering how the solicits regarding MJ's return mention Peter's new job, I'm wondering if, due to whatever MJ's return and Norah completely misunderstanding what's going on and therefore pissed over the misunderstanding that Peter's was already seeing MJ and using her (sort of like Amy Powell) Norah hypocritically charges him with sexual harassment and, unable to determine who is telling the truth, Peter has to be let go from Front Line for the time being.


          And oddly enough, this wouldn't be the first time a blond, female "Lois-Lane" type journalist colleague was interested and attracted to Peter. Anyone remember Joy Mercado?

    Amy Powell was using Peter, not the other way around.

She WAS trying to use Peter to make her boyfriend, Lance, jealous, sure. But when MJ walked in and found out she used to be Peter's fiancee, she ended up getting mad at Peter because, ironically enough, she assumed he was trying to use her.

With Norah, I see a slightly different situation: In Joe Kelly Hammehead story, in which Norah was first introduced, Norah also asked Peter out for dinner at the end (although it was more or less her telling him he was going to ask her out). And, during the Spidey/FF arc, she was looking for Peter, and had it not been for Peter being gone, it's possible that she never would have gone out with Randy. And, if the case is that she's flirting with Peter, I'm getting the distinct feeling that after she gets what she wants out of a guy, she essentially dumps them out of boredom. In hindsight, the scenes that showed her with Randy made it seem like Randy was only interested in music and clubbing, which, after two months, I think would be pretty boring if that's all their dating amounts to. Norah probably figured "Okay, let's just get this over with and have sex so I can move on to somebody else."

So, my guess is that once Norah meets MJ--after convincing Peter to take her to his place--in another case of irony, her reaction would be "That's your big secret? That you've dated a hot actress and then dumped HER? So what does that make me? Have you've been leading me on all this time? I was attracted to you because I thought you were a mysterious guy, but it turns out, you're just a cad. Well so long, Pete. You are officially banned from Norah's mystery garden." Maybe she won't go as far as sue him for sexual harassment (which I agree would be a bit much), but she probably raise up enough of a row in her crazy sarcastic way, to make it so that Pete may have to avoid Frontline for awhile until things blow over.
