Both of them, you could say are spunky, flirtatious, and have a sarcastic wit, with the exception being that Mary Jane is more gentle and Norah is more abrasive. I do not think I am being critical here; rather, I think it was deliberate on Joe Kelly and the braintrust.

> > I honestly don't see it. The only thing they have in common is that they're both outgoing, though in very different ways. Mary Jane was a flirtatious extrovert always looking for a fun time. Norah Winters is plucky, confident, utterly tactless and loves to wind up easy targets.
> I got the same vibe as you. Norah comes across as an interesting addition to the cast. She seases and picks, simply to tease and pick. She's a smartass.

I know it's only been two issues, but I think she's could have some real staying power. She's not just being written as a potential love interest. It's nice for Peter to have a co-worker who's around the same age, and for there to be another character who can bug him and make him uncomfortable without there being any actual disdain like there is with Jameson/Harry/Vin/Bennet etc. Norah just wants to make him squirm, because she thinks it's fun.
