    Default Who is Peter's best best friend?

    This is slightly inspired by the best love interest thread.

    What character works best in the best friend role for Peter?
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Harry Osborn is my gut reaction. 616 and 1610 have both had really good moments.
    What I'm reading this month: Avengers, New Avengers, Uncanny Avengers, Batman, Arkham Manor, Hellboy and the BPRD 1952, IXTH Generation, Witchblade.

    My gut says I have to say Harry as well. Of course their relationship can be & has got complicated and unfriendly at times, but...I'm voting Harry.

    Clark: You're not a god. I'm not even sure you're human.
    Lex Luthor: Are you?

    Harry is his best friend in his normal life, while Johnny Storm is his best Superhero friend (with Logan close behind). As far as female friends who aren't really love interests, I'd say his best female friend is Carol. Unless you count your lover/wife/one true love as your best friend, in which case it would be MJ .

    I don't have an answer at the moment, which is partly why I started the poll.

    I think Peter's best friend shouldn't be a superhero. It shouldn't be someone he dated. He doesn't have enough history with Robbie. And Harry's been through too much.
    Sincerely,

    I guess this comes down to if one believes Spider-Man is an aspect of Peter rather than just an alternate identity. If one does, Mary Jane is the only one on the list who is really in both worlds. Everyone else is going to have a relationship with half the man. So, for me I don't see Johnny as making any less sense than Harry or Flash.

    Flash and Harry both started as tormentors for Peter in their high school/early college years,but they ended up being his best,non superpowered,friends.

    How about Steve Rogers, Brian Braddock, Matt Murdock, or Bruce Banner. I think that Peter's best friend should not be a Spider-Man created character. Rather an out side character.

    No good answer, for me. But I went with MJ, because she was functioning as his best friend from around the time of Gwen's death until sometime in the 1980s, and then durign the marriage, and during much of the post-OMD era. He's really a loner, though, thats part of his character. Come to think of it, not many alter-egos of superheroes have best friends. Clark Kent has Jimmy, but they aren't really close in that way. Batman has Alfred, but its more of a father-son relationship. Harley Quinn and Joker are sort of best friends in a really twisted kind of way.

    Huh.

    A toss up between MJ, Betty, Harry, or Johnny.
    There would be no shocking memories, and the prevailing emotion will be one of nostalgia for those left behind, combined with a spirit of bold curiosity for the adventure ahead!

    I would say Matt Murdock before Logan.
