I always loved Spider-Man Noir. I had wished it had a longer run. In the early issues of Spider-Man Noir, Felicia and Peter did have a thing. She knows of his secret identity. But later on (if I can recall), she blames Peter for the scar on her face thus sort of ending whatever relationship they had. She had a flawless face before when they were first involved with each other. At that time MJ and Peter were just friends or maybe I'm remembering incorrectly.

The "armed conflict" was r=the Spanish Civil War. The War which was between Communist and Fascist forces (with a few smaller factions). Many Americans went over to fight for various reasons, mostly to prevent Fascism, however there were also those fighting against communism, with the smaller, and also just for adventure. One of the most well known Americans that went over to fight was Ernst Hemingway.

Many consider it a prelude to World War 2 given that the end led to another Fascist power rising, which was financially ans militarily backed by fellow Fascist nations of Germany and Italy, and the Communists by the Soviet with many other nations having soldiers volunteer.

In the end it left many of those who participated with scars both physical and psychological, given that it was a very intense and vicious war (another reason it is considered a prelude yo WWII) and Spain with a Fascist dictatorship until the leader died in the early 70s.

It was also used as the backdrop for the movie Pan's Labyrinth.
