Not to mention Aunt May thinking that Peter has porn stashed in his closet.

I hope they keep this up when the new Spider-Man film comes out and some little kid starts to browse.

well you have to be steady on it, it may be hard at first, but in the end, when all Norah's hard work is paid off, it will yield an enormous bounty and then soften, she will then have to work it up again to be able to plow properly....

And Pete's never gone to him for help with money/livingspace troubles, or just to hang out, or anything, despite living with the man for about a year back when MJ was 'dead', during the first great blunder committed in order to try and separate them. Guess Marvel Editorial knows which side its bread is buttered on...guess Pete can always turn to Harry, his good-ol' mentally unstable rich-kid college-buddy.

In other bitterness: I miss Bambi, Candi and Randi.

Actually Peter DID go to Randy for help last issue when he was booted out of his apartment. Randy told him that he was a horrible roommate and specifically cited Kevin the cheese. I guess the Jenkins era was just too light-hearted and fun or something, idk.

I don't think Harry and Randy can really be compared, tbh. Although Randy's technically existed almost as long as Harry, the only period he was ever a consistent supporting cast member was in the post-Clone Saga, pre-JMS period, and even then he didn't have much to do. That is, of course, a failing on writers' part as much as anything else, but at this point Harry has much, much more accumulated history with Peter and with other supporting cast members than Randy does.

Hah. What you miss, picking up these things on s_d only. I remember him and Glory walking in on Peter dancing naked to 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and laughing about it in a cafe later...a merrier time indeed.

Yeah...I admit my caffeine haze probably fuelled that comparison. Still, in any canon, Randy has never come close to murdering MJ and/or his own significant other while dressed in a garish costume, so to me he'll always be the better friend.

Honestly, I think Peter's a worse friend to Harry than vice versa. Harry's done awful things to Peter, MJ, Liz and Normie, but in the throes of serious mental illness - while I don't think that gives him a free pass, I don't think he can be held fully accountable for his actions either. On the other hand, Peter has almost constantly lied to Harry, abandoned him when he's in need, prioritized his secret identity over Harry's mental well-being, etc etc, and he's always been in full possession of his faculties.

I remember the 80s issue where he actively DISCOURAGED Harry from trying to turn the GG into a heroic identity, merely because...actually I can't remember. No good reason, anyway.

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who read this and was taken aback by it. In the first place, this is not the first time Norah has said racially-charged comments. From issue #576:

Peter Parker: Maybe we should split up. Cover more ground.
Norah Winters: What? And leave little ol' me in the Big Bad Bronx without any protection? Someone of color might speak to me.
Peter Parker: Wow, insulting to my manhood and racist. What did I do to deserve you?
Norah Winters: I'm kidding, Parker. I'm equally obnoxious to all people.

And from issue #606:

Norah Winters: Honey, Pete hasn't found the stones to ask me out yet, but I'm not your problem.
Peter Parker: Yet? I --
Norah Winters: It's because your booty looks like it swallowed a sack of dead puppies.
Michelle Gonzales: WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?!
Norah Winters: Next time someone slides you a plate of rice and beans, grab some ensalada, honey.

And, of course, we have Norah last use the pun "Manuel Labor."

Now, I don't mind stereotypical or politically incorrect humor, especially if it's done in order to shatter whatever prejudices people might have. But I seriously question whether such humor, especially jokes about the size of an African American's character penis (and yes, even though it's not specifically mentioned, it's clear what we're meant to infer from Norah's comment), is suitable content for a comic book that is supposedly age appropriate for 9 year old kids. Really makes me question what standard Marvel is using to rate their own comics.
