    Now that just seems out of character for him as a whole.

    EDIT: Please tell me Spencer isnít going for a Romeo and Juliet angle Randy and Janice. I just remembered that that both their fathers are archenemies.

    It will be a Spencer take, full of dark humor, wit, and meta-jokes.

    I kind of think Spencer had this in the back of his mind, in the sense of either "could do it if I get a chance" or "this might be something a later writer can make good use of" when he made Janice Tombstone's daughter. Obviously Robbie Robertson and his son Randy were established characters, now you have Tombstone who's revealed to have had a daughter around the same age. Tombstone remember wasn't an especially known villain then and if he was known it was for Conway's original stories where he was Randy's enemy. So Spencer had to have suspected that eventually this could tie into something with Lonnie. It's also great because Peter and Randy are like brothers and Joe Robertson has long been like a father to Peter. Especially when Spencer showed Peter spending thanksgiving with Robbie and Randy. So a lot of interesting drama there.

    That was something Spencer did in Superior Foes of Spider-Man. Lady Beetle was created by Ed Brubaker in 2007 in his run on Captain America but Spencer was the one who created her name, and her backstory. So he's basically for Janice what Miller was for Kingpin. So this is like a long-term pay-off on seeds Spencer planted in Superior Foes.

    Yeah, that...does seem a bit much for Randy.

    Like, it would be one thing for him dating Janice in her civilian identity since I don't think it's ever been clear whether she's publically known as a Supervillain, but knowing full well who she is?

    I guess he probably doesn't know who her dad is, unless he's dating her partially to screw with Tombstone.

    But hey, at least this will probably make the Robertsons relevant again .

    The Robertsons have always been relevant since Robbie Robertson helped Spider-Man track Norman's warehouse after Gwen died. Joe "Robbie" Robertson played a major part in decommissioning Norman Osborn and exiling him to Europe.

    Honestly, it feels like the last time Robbie had any real relevant role was during BND, and mostly just been background support since, and since the start of Spencer's run, Randy's most relevant role was acting as the guy to get in the way of Phil Urich's crush. So I do hope this pairing is setting up for some kind of confrontation with Robbie and Tombstone in the future, because it'd be great to see another story with him at the front again.

    Also, I can't even remember when the last time Tombstone has had his own relevant role in a story, besides popping up in random books as a side character here and there. I do think Spectacular Spider-Man is what helped alot with his popularity.

    I think we are definitely going to get that now. Will be surprised if Spencer doesn't take this there. The drama and stakes are just too good to pass.

    Tombstone showed up in Spectacular Foes of Spider-Man (where he's established as a bigger deal than Hammerhead) and he also showed up in...surprise surprise...Gerry Conway's Spiral. He was also mentioned in passing as one of the major crimelords in that Madripoor secret society in Fraction's Hawkeye series.

    Spectacular Spider-Man gave Lonnie some prominence, but he also had a strong showing in the PS4 game. A lot of casual gamers (i.e. not Spider-Man fans) said his boss-fight and overall interaction with Spider-Man was the best, and it's seen as a high point in that.

    These aren't very recent stories, so they don't address the current relevance of the characters.

    Granted, this is a promising set-up.

    I hope Janice & Randy's relationship mirrors Tombstone & Robbie's...

    One of the biggest disservices of the franchise as of late has been how they've treated the Robertsons family, both in-and-out of comics.

    To be honest it's what I'd been hoping they'd do with Janice as Beetle since we found out she was Tombstone's daughter.
    Tombstone showed up in Spectacular Foes of Spider-Man (where he's established as a bigger deal than Hammerhead) and he also showed up in...surprise surprise...Gerry Conway's Spiral.

    I think Spiral was the last time he was shown fighting Peter.
    Spectacular Spider-Man gave Lonnie some prominence, but he also had a strong showing in the PS4 game. A lot of casual gamers (i.e. not Spider-Man fans) said his boss-fight and overall interaction with Spider-Man was the best, and it's seen as a high point in that.
    Don't forget about his animated debut in the 90's cartoon, where he had two major episodes involving his grudge with the Robertsons family.

    Wow! Wasn’t expecting the Randy Janis thing. Another solid issue. Want to see where Spencer takes this. Glad to see Janis getting some prime time billing. Fred is great. Hope he sticks around for awhile. ASM is my number one pull right now. Slightly ahead of Immortal Hulk.

    This was a fun romp, wonder if after their master plan falls apart they will remain together or not.
