    Quote:
    I personally found it a bit odd that when Peter interacts with Betty the fact that her brother was violently killed and that her husband was murdered did not come up more often. With Ned it even seemed deliberate to me, because they also made Betty revert back to calling herself by her maiden name and the Foreigner, the pretty interesting villain directly responsible for Ned's death, practically never appeared again and was hardly ever alluded to. Ned's death also should be relevant in Peter's dealings with the Black Cat, but it is understandable that writers using her don't want to bring up the fact that she was in cahoots and in bed with the Foreigner at the time of Ned's murder.


I'd love to see the return of the Foreigner. Since he is a master of disguise, it would be great to see him revealed as someone close to Spider-man. Maybe even disguised as Roderick Kingsley himself (since Hobgoblin's recent mercenary stint is more in-character with the Foreigner than with Kingsley). Maybe the Foreigner is keeping Kingsley prisoner somewhere? It would explain why "Kingsley" was so casual about the murder of his brother.
