Profile: Jean DeWolff
First appearance: Marvel Team-Up #48. She was a NY police captain and frequent guest star for a time in Spider-Man’s adventures, proving a most helpful ally many times.
Current status: dead
Was subjected to the following act of discrimination: she was terminated by her ex-lover Stan Carter, alias Sin-Eater.
What’s wrong with how this was done? I think it was a case of needlessly tossing out yet another cast member of Spidey’s world with potential. Jean had some very good moments, and why not give her some more?
Was there anything good to come out of this? That it may have had some dramatic impact and value to it. The story can be found today compiled in trade format, in Amazing Spider-Man: The Death of Jean DeWolff, co-authored by Peter David and Rich Buckler. It was revealed that her feeling towards Spidey may have been even warmer than what she may have usually indicated.
