Peter Parker, Player

Hey, who's the most lovable loser in the Marvel Universe? The guy who things never work out for? The guy we're all supposed to feel sorry for? The guy who's had eight knock-out girlfriends?!?

The loves of Peter Parker

Oh, cry me a freakin' river about your poor love life, Parker.

Eight sweet, sweet victims of The Parker Charm. Beware, ladies...it's deadly.

I can't believe Marcy Kane has the gall to call Peter Parker mysterious when she's secretly an alien!

8 lovely ladies! 1 body shape!

Guess he has a type

I think MJ has the biggest rack. And then maybe Glory, followed by Betty... I think Peter worked his way up in breast size, but I'm not sure in which order some of these women came into Parker's love-life.

And we recently learned of a ninth, Jessica Jones, who had a crush on Peter in high school.

Phillip said...

Well, in all fairness I think he only really dated four or five of these ladies. If they included Glory, why'd they leave out Candi, Bambi, and Randi?

This reminds me of how long Gwen Stacy has been thought of as nothing but The Dead One. No word balloon but she gets a heavenly Pigpen cloud.

Mary Jane Watson says, "He asked me to marry him! Can you imagine?! Sure I was flattered - - but no one ties this lady down!"

That word balloon makes it's own comedy gravy now.

Three of them got knocked, 1 of them knocked by Parker, another by "Norman Osbourn", a third by "Harry Osbourn"

The alien priestess never fell in love with Pete, Pete wasn't exactly the boyfriend type toward Deborah

The most amazing (or, considering the source, AMAZING) thing about this page is the fact that, yes kids, once upon a time, Jazzy Johnny's kid could actually draw people. Recognizable people, too, not just vaguely people-shaped lumps for Klaus and the unlucky-colorist-du-jour to make some kinda sense outta.

Thems wuz da days.
