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

    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.
