After seeing the quick rise and fall of Peter's relationship with Carlie Cooper, I can't help but wonder if the Black Cat might have been responsible for jinxing his relationship? It seems to match the classic bad luck powers of the Black Cat. Around the time when Spider-Man broke off his relationship with Felicia for Carlie, she might have been upset with that by jinxing his relationship to Carlie. There was no way that Peter would have been reckless with his web fluid or his costume. In his past relationships(other than Mary Jane), Peter was always careful to hide all evidence that he was Spider-Man. Why was this situation different, as well as why he had to lie to someone who was likely to protect his secret from the start? The powers of the Black Cat was probably the main reason why Peter's relationship to Carlie failed because he knew that she doesn't tolerate people who lie to her. And Peter knows that before he starts a serious relationship with someone, he has to trust the woman that he is with with his secret. But Felicia's bad luck powers prevented him from revealing his secret to a woman who guard that secret with her life. Once the relationship ended, Felicia KNEW that Spider-Man would crawl back to her. But she rejected his advances because she wanted to make him suffer by making out with Daredevil in front of him. Let this be a lesson: Never reveal your latest relationship to a woman with Bad Luck powers. It also appears that Felicia got her revenge with Spider-Man for dumping her.
