Here's something else I just realized--it's pretty evident were going to see Peter, Jonah, and other members of the supporting cast react to Marla's death and feel so shaken by the news for quite a few issues, and yet when comes to Mattie Franklin's death in The Grim Hunt--who was essentially Jonah and Marla's adopted daughter--we STILL have yet see the various characters, including Jonah, react to her death and Marvel has pretty much admitted they're not going to follow-up on that. And Mattie was a character who had her own series for crying out loud!

You say that like you have some expectation that female supporting cast serve any purpose other than as convenient plot/character development devices for the male characters.

I asked Tom Brevoort on Formspring a couple of times if we would see Jonah's reaction, and he said "She's just his niece".

WOW. I can't even ... wow.

Well, geez, Ben Parker was only Peter's uncle, after all! It's not like that death has EVER bothered Spidey!
