Quote:Courtesy of USA Weekend, which reveals not only who Peter's new girlfriend will be (which really doesn't come as much of a surprise) but also his new career (which should remind folks of something from the Howard Mackie reboot era):
Remember Dan Slott said, when talking about Mutant Zero from Avengers: The Initative, that it'd be a character so big that even non-comic book fans would recognize her. The only real character who fit that description who wasn't being used at the time was Jean Gray.
It turned out to be Typhoid Mary.
That means, acording to Wikipedia, that Marvel feel Spider-man's will so weak that she can influence him (That is the only reason I see for pairing him with a psionic super villain. I have only read the wikipedia information on her powers, so forgive me if there is anything I've missed).
