    * Cissy Ironwood: Dated Peter a few times. She was a generic love interest penned by Claremont who didn't want to use Marcy Kane as it was about that time.

    Cissie Ironwood actually made her debut (in MTU #80) two months before Marcy Kane. The way I read it, Cissie was created so that Claremont (and other writers of Marvel Team-Up) could write scenes where Peter has to run out on a date without having to refer to what was going on in the other two Spider-books. In MTU #79, for instance, Mary Jane had been shown kissing Peter under the mistletoe while Marv Wolfman on ASM and Mantlo on PPSSM still were pursuing Peter's affair with Betty Leeds. (To make matters worse, ASM was edited by a different guy (Wolfman) than MTU and PPSSM (Milgrom)).

I think that's fair. I was just going off memory, I just couldn't piece it together in my head accurately. I thought Marcy was first and Claremont didn't want to use her. It kind of makes sense what you're saying though.

I wouldn't mind seeing Cissy again, and her actually being given a character and background. All we knew of her was that she was dating Peter. Exceptionally generic!

    I don't see why not, but they have been in limbo an awful long time.

I liked Desiree.

    * There was that neighbour that Ben Reilly had, who people mistook IRL for Joystick for years. Who was she again?

    Sorry, just plain forgot.

Carrie Bradley. The thing with her was there was a controversy for some time because Eric Gilette tied in Joystick and Carrie for the same character and other people on the net took it as gospel. Unfortunately it spread and for years Joystick's identity was screwed until Marvel cleared it up.

Carrie Bradley is just Ben Reilly's neighbour who dumped him because, ironically, he was late for a date because he fought Joystick. I think she only appeared once or twice though so I don't know if you can count her.

-Jeremiah Ecks,
who thinks that the Imagine Dragons theme for Transformers 4 is better than the actual movie by far.
