> The unmasking, for all its downpoints, has done one good thing--its allowed the supporting cast to show their true values and feelings in a way that's often very touching. Betty's years of conflict were always based on her confusion and doubt--once that's cleared up her true loyalty shines through. That's the silver lining of the unmasking story, even while we also have to contend with endless "Villain X tries to kill MJ and/or Peter" plots.

Her line during FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD #15 cements Betty's true feelings: "My life finally makes sense." Learning Peter is Spider-Man did cause her to be a little angry at first, but she understood the more she thought about it. She's not as crazy as she once thought she was.

FNSM #14-16 had Peter David do an interesting thing: juxtapose two women, Betty and Deb Whitman, both pseudo-romantic interests with Peter Parker, both with mental illness problems, reacting to the unmasking.

love fnsm - my current favorite of the spidey titles - for me the best combination of humor, character development, and action. so glad to see the classic supporting cast. Thanks PAD!
