    Not hard to do when you could call her "The Molester" whenever she was written by Slott without joking lol.

    Good on her. Looks like this ongoing is picking up right where her mini left off. Guess the numbers were strong enough from the mini to keep going.

    All I remember is her brushing him off and acting dismissive of him in her solo.

    Well, Spider-Man was still being used, so it'd be weirder if they made Venom be disconnected from Spidey lol.

    Agreed, I think they could make it like a mild version of Drew's pheromones(I read in some (probably fake)early leak) but better dropped.
    I guess they could do that at most, but not like her pheromones are much of an appeal.

    Just have other Spiders show up in her solo, sales boost + great chance to interact
    As long as they don't overstay their welcome...

    Yeah, even her being bitten by the same spider as him is kind of a whatever thing from her backstory now.

    Ah yes, "The Bride" being a mistranslation, and the correct one being "The Molester" .

    Yeah she was pretty annoyed at Peter for just existing at times, which, hey, better that than, uh, what Slott did...

    Can always be excused that things were awkward and she was pushing him away 'cause of it, but hey...

    Wonder if we will get a SILK Omni? Surely there is enough material for one now or will be soon.
    There's 26 issues total of Robbie Thompson's post-Spider-Verse series with her, so that's plenty, I'd think.
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    I mean stuff like this, otherwise she suffers from anti-spider-man trope where she just hates Spider-man and is annoyed by him which just makes the audience hate her more...

    Why does Sony insist on taking characters with direct ties to Spider-Man and make properties using them in universes where Spider-Man doesn’t exist?

    Because they can’t use Spidey directly as he’s on loan to Marvel, but still want some of the $$$ that some of his fame has rubbed off on popular secondary characters like Venom?

    Monetary benefit
    They don't care about the characters or delivering a semi-faithful adaptation and by extension the fans
    Comics do the same and slap the Spider name on characters to ride Spider-man's coattails because they can't make a half decent OC

What’s new since then? TikTok? Seems like the writers are just looking for ANY angle to make her interesting.
    That is partially a sliding timescale issue, since Cindy was in the bunker for over a decade -- but a decade in Marvel Time isn't the same thing as a decade of real time.

    But to be clear, its not really a matter of struggling with the technology of social media; its struggling with the changes in culture that has developed as social media has gotten more widespread and more ingrained in every day life. She's just a bit out of synch with the social evolution that happened while she was off the grid for a decade. It would be unrealistic for her not to be out of synch in that regard.

    She can be, and she is -- and has been in the vast majority of her appearances since her introduction. Just because one story she appears in happens to have Korean magic as a plot element doesn't suddenly mean she is changing her name to "Super-Asian".

    Who says she's "searching" for it? I don't see anything in the interview or the solicit that says this is something she is seeking out. The threat that she will be running into involves "ancient Korean magic". Her last miniseries also had a magical element. Her last ongoing had her ex-boyfriend become a superhero ghost. Why does the fact that this time around the magic happens to be of Korean background suddenly make it a negative thing?

    Anya's a minority herself, she's Latina.

    Not really, as the Black Widow book actually stars BOTH Black Widows - Yelena is Natasha's partner, and they, Anya, and a brand new character are a team of four.

    The second one is at least nice.
