      Nah he’s the real problem behind the characters’ aging and he keeps repeating the same character arc every time he meets a new person

    This just made me remember Teresa Parker, who was quickly memory holed and never mentioned again.

      She was used in major roles. Zdarsky's Soectacular and then Spencer's ASM so it's hard to call her forgotten.

        I read both of those runs, guess she's just forgettable to me.

      Spencer retconned that she MIGHT be a plant. It’s moronic but better than her being his long lost sister I guess.
      Parker’s parents being spys is also fricking stupid. Hopefully both are utterly ignored.

      Spider-editors are truly awful

    The JSA has been built on this since the 70s and 80s. Usually the less page time the character getting the family gets, the less bullshit it is. eg Al Pratt, Iron Munro, and Sandra Knight getting a son in Walter Pratt (and thus a granddaughter in Katehunter) wasn’t an asspull because those 3 barely appeared in a span of 20-30 years, with their younger selves not explored in depth since the decade of their creation.

    This always felt like a cheap attempt to secure royalties by tying them to a prominent character.

    Remember when they gave Spider-Man a secret agent sister? Whatever happened to that?

    I guess you're not a fan of Dick's Uncle George or Aunt Harriet either, then?

    She's also the adopted daughter of the man responsible for killing his parents.

      She was also raised by the Maroni family after her mom ran away with her from Zucco.

      Taylor just slapped 3 well known names on her to avoid having to do any actual character work.

      Not adopted. His name is on the birth certificate.
      I don't think there's an English word for when you have a child but it's really someone else's because your wife fricked someone else and lied about it.

        I was under the impression that Tony Zucco never thought the kids was his but he still went along with it and allowed her to have his last name?

        Not sure if you're joking but you probably care, because the word is used so often. Starts with C, rhymes with "Duck, old tree"

        In the court system it's called 'assumed paternity'. If you're married and she cheats, the child is by default, yours. And married or not you usually have a year or less to get the paternity investigated and contested. Any contributions to the child or mother during this is assumed paternity. Depending on where you are in burgerland, DNA testing is still not proof enough, and in France and Germany it is illegal without the mother's consent.

              I keep hearing this but never hear about the consequences. What is it a fine? Nobody is getting jail over son shit like that.

                Pretty sure child endangerment is jail time but check with your lawyer.

    Creating a long lost family member is a coin toss, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. The trick that never works is taking existing characters and retconning them into being related.

      Eh if the two characters are literally who enough it can work. It worked for Ted Knight and Sandra Knight.

      Roy Harper being related to Vandal Savage was dope. Being related to Jim Harper though was slightly less dope.

    I can't wait till the next writer comes along and retcons her and her mom as another Court of Owls plant or reveals the mom was lying about fricking his dad or something.

      Melinda actually being a mega c**t villainness/mobster pretending to be his sister to weasel her way his inner circle would be way better than Taylor playing it straight. She doesn't even have a personality right now.
