> Like in my MJ thread, I am wondering where Parker goes from here?

I see one clear solution for Pete. Send him back to school. I'm thinking he finished his masters degree? This is good. Send him after his PhD. A PhD in the sciences can take 3-5 years after an MS degree. This would essentially be forever in the new MU time. Plus, add in the fact that Pete might only be going part time while working for the Bugle.

It's a win-win. Pete appears young by being in school yet realistically could be well into his 30s in that scenario. Everyone is satisfied. Pete gets to do research (plot devices here) and use that scientific mind of his regularly.

Of course he could never finish or he'd be Dr. Parker.

> Relationship wise, I think he should avoid Lily Hollister. We already had the whole relationship-triangle between Parker, Harry and MJ. I don’t seen how this situation could be spiced up more than the MJ ‘rivalry’ that Parker and Osborne had. Same old, same old.

In two years Lily will be as well known as Senator Ward's daughter.

> Out of the new Cast, I think Carlie Cooper would be a good match. They seem to enjoy each others company and playfully tease each other. This is already a different type of relationship that Peter has comparing to his others. Gwen Stacy = cute, nice girl, MJ = Party Girl, Black Cat = Sexual Tension. Carlie seems to have his own sense of humor and as a general upbeat personality.

I think in two years we'll have no idea who she is.

> But I would really like to see Parker and Black Cat rekindle their relationship.
> Like Frank Miller said about DD and Elektra, these superheroes have a life that is dangerous, sexy, fast-paced which affects all aspects of their life. Why then come home to a normal person? Why does Superman go with Lois Lane and not Wonder Woman? With WW she could match him and keep up with that type of lifestyle.
> I would really would like to see Spidey and Cat stay in a long-term relationship.

Last time I checked Felicia was just a normal lady. MJ could do just as well if you think about it. It's really dumb how they have her going on missions with him. Anyway, the point is valid. Everyone seemed to enjoy it when Ultimate Peter Parker went out with Kitty Pryde. Maybe Spidey could date....I really don't know. Who is in their late 20s?

> Maybe Peter could date both for awhile. Date Cat as Spider and Carlie as Peter until he makes up his mind? But at the end of the day I would like to see Peter and Carlie get together. They just seem like a good fit.

That seems a little dishonest for Pete. I'd rather not have more rehashing with Felicia anyway (I'm not reading it anyway but I'm sure others feel the same).

> This maybe slightly off topic, I get the feeling Peters roommate Vincent Gonzales could be gay(not that there is anything wrong with that!). I remember one scene where Peter was moving in (Can’t remember exactly) and made some comment about dating and after Peter walked off, Vince had some sort of disappointed look on his face. Hey – THAT would be a relationship that we never saw Peter in before, heh ?

That would be new.

> What about you guys?
