        MJ and May for the most part. JMS made them interesting characters on their own.


        Right. The supporting cast of the flagship title was reduced to two characters, both of whom knew Spider-Man's secret identity.

    And the problem is?

    We don't all want the character stuck in the Silver Age forever. But hey, current Marvel's got your back.

So if Amazing Spider-Man has a supporting cast then it's "stuck in the Silver Age"?

Amazing Spider-Man had a prominent supporting cast in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s and 1990s... until JMS's run where it dwindled down to MJ and Aunt May, both of whom were privy to Peter's super-hero life. The focus shifted almost exclusively to Spider-Man the super-hero whilst Peter Parker, the ordinary guy with ordinary life problems was pushed to the sidelines. Then when JMS's run ended Amazing Spider-Man quickly built up a supporting cast again.
