Quote: Um, Glori Grant is still around, isn't she? And what about that female photographer that used to be a supporting cast member? Kate Cushing, I believe, was her name. Ben Urich, but he's usually associated with Daredevil, and with the Daredevil universe. But we always get new supporting cast members.
Kate Cushing was city editor of the Daily Bugle for a while, when Robbie was made editor-in-chief. She was eventually "let go" and AFAIK vanished into limbo.
Nick Katzenberg, a very sleazy Bugle journalist and blackmailer, eventually died of lung cancer. He was a smoker. Don't recall if Quesada had anything to do with this story.
Lance Bannon, another Bugle photographer and professional rival to Peter Parker. Killed by F.A.C.A.D.E.
And I can't believe I forgot him:
Eddie Brock, journalist for the Daily Globe - the first Venom.
That was way before Quesada. I never read the issue/storyline where he died, but I hear that it happened off-panel. He wasn't really a supporting cast/friend of Peter's anyway. Eddie Brock was a villain (Is he still alive?), not a supporting cast member. Kate Cushing, that was her. Thanks!
