> I'd say those qualities used to describe Norah could also describe Mary Jane as well, especially during the time when Stan Lee was writing the books. And both, not just MJ, are flirtatious extroverts who have a tendency to themselves the center of attention. However, you're are correct in that MJ is more about letting one's hair down, whether it be herself or Peter's. For Norah, it's more or less based upon her being a reporter, more "nosy" if you will. Plus it's not improbable that two people, while different, can have similar temperaments, as I think is the case here.

I think it really boils down to the fact that Mary Jane wouldn't call our protagonist "Peter Parkinsons".
