    Default CBR's 25 Best Spider-Man Supporting Characters #15-11

    Well, the next 5 greatest Spider-Man supporting characters--according to CBR--is now up, and some of them might be regarded as interesting and rather controversial choices to be sure.

    Indeed. I mean, Ben Parker? That guy was in one issue!

    Ben Parker's been in one issue, but he's a continuing presence in Peter's life.

    I like seeing Ben Reilly on the list.

    Great to see Daredevil here, too. Aside from the FF and specifically Johnny Storm, I can't think of a hero who (IMO) should have closer ties to Spidey. I wish Matt knew Pete's ID again.

    I was surprised Carlie was on the list.

    The Uncle Ben story that is referenced was such a great issue. Although it is incorrectly referred to as Spectacular Spider-Man. It was actually Peter Parker Spider-Man (vol. 2) #33 (or 121 of volume 1 as was also on the cover).
    The monster saved them all. And in their fear, they betrayed him. As they always have. As they always will.

    Same here. And speaking of Johnny Storm/Human Torch, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he's in the top 10. After all, his and Spidey's friendship/rivalry is the stuff of legend.

    Particularly over Norah Winters who, IMO, is a better character. (Although, I would have been far more surprised if Michele Gonzales made it to the list.)

    She's above Wolverine on this list. That's what REALLY surprises me.

    Peter is a Jets fan? That explains a lot.

    And, of course happy to see Carlie on the list.

    Carlie...? It's like "In your face haters"
    I love her being there

    Who's the other controversial character? DareDevil or DeWolff?

    He's been in many flashbacks, and that one issue appearance by Parker made Spider-Man the guy we love

    Same

    It still is one

    He must be among the top 10, I voted for him and Aunt May cause they're that important

    Particularly over Norah Winters who, IMO, is a better character. (Although, I would have been far more surprised if Michele Gonzales made it to the list.)
    Norah is one of the more annoying characters, never understood all the love she gets

    I am obsessed with the idea of completely erasing Spider-Man from every Marvel continuity

    I'm a little surprised Daredevil didn't crack the top 10.

    So who does that leave. Gwen Stacy, Johnny Storm, Aunt May, Mary Jane Watson, Black Cat, Harry Osborn, Flash Thompson, Robbie Robertson, and presumably Jonah and maybe Glory Grant or Betty Brant?

    Edit: And of course we could have some curve balls thrown out like a Dr. Strange or a Ben Grimm or another costumed hero.

    I doubt Gwen would make it. She's been dead for over 30 years. Plus she was in less than 100 issues.

    The list already has Ben Reilly (who has been dead for around 15 years now), George Stacy (who was in way less issues than Gwen and has been dead even longer) and Jean DeWolff (who has been dead for over 25 years now).

    Gwen will be in the top 10.

    My guess add the top 15 had been:
    J. Jonah Jameson
    Mary Jane
    Gwen Stacy
    Human Torch
    Aunt May
    Uncle Ben
    Punisher
    Harry Osborn
    Black Cat
    Robbie Robertson
    Ben Reilly
    Daredevil
    Flash Thompson
    Betty Brant
    Carlie Cooper

    As you can see, I left off Jean and overestimated Uncle Ben.

    But that means somebody on my list is not making the top 25, which is hard to imagine.

    Punisher is the one I hope I'm wrong about, but I fear it will be Betty.
