Quote:Jenkins, in particular, gave Peter a bunch of supporting characters (And a hamster.) when he went to live in an apartment, or whatever. Did we ever see tem again?
Quote:Most of JMS' supporting cast really were there to serve the specific story. PAD used some of the characters from the school in FNSM but that's about it. Matt Fraction used JMS' detective in a Sensational Spider-Man Annual where he helps hunt down Mary Jane trying to bring Peter in in a post-Civil War era story.
Detective Lamont appeared in the SSM Annual story by Fraction, but he was actually secretly meeting Peter while someone else (who had been one of MJ's bodyguards during her separation from Peter) went after MJ in another part of New York.
There were also a number of semi-recurrent characters connected with Midtown High, but the last of these dropped from sight after OMD. Of note: PAD's Miss Arrow, who turned out to be more than she seemed (FNSM).
IIRC, Jenkins' characters dropped from sight after Peter and MJ reunited (or earlier).
