    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! ;\-\)


Thanks for the info!
Yeah, surprisingly enough sleazy blackmailers tend to be villains. But Nick Katzenberg still was useful as a bad example - Peter took MJ to see him as he lay dying to shock her into stopping to smoke.

According to Wikipedia Brock is still alive (he appeared e. g. in Spider-Island and the Venom series starring Flash Thompson. In the latter he was forced to bond with the Toxin symbiote by none other than Bennett Brant, or so I read on wiki. Eddie Brock for a not insignificant part of his career was considered a vigilante anti-hero, and that apparently is his current status.

There is always a bit of an overlap between villains and supporting cast, just look at Norman Osborn during the Silver Age. I wanted to be generous re. Nick Katzenberg and really did not know enough about Eddie Brock to exclude the possibility that he had a few appearances in a non-villainous, supporting role in stories I did not read.
