I’m sorry, MJ. I don’t think you understand. For you, the world is as it always was, but for me it will never be the same. For a while I had everything I ever wanted from life. I had the woman I wanted… and it wasn’t you.

↳Carol Danvers’ Friendships (2/2): Peter Parker/Spider-manBackground: Peter and Carol’s relationship is, much like Carol’s feelings for Peter, complicated. Peter shows signs of being intimidated by Carol, but that is also a large part of his attraction towards her. Since the death of Gwen, Peter’s taste in women has always been one that can take care of herself in a fight. But Carol is a lot more than that and a lot different than the other women Peter has pursued. There is definitely an attraction from Carol’s end, confirmed by Venom when the symbiote took over Carol and later confirmed by Carol herself, but Peter is younger and more unsure of himself than the men Carol typically dates. He sees himself as an outcast from the Avengers and Carol has been shown trying to ease those feelings of his. Though they may not have had the best date, (with Peter still shocked that she even agreed to go on one with him that he wasn’t even his usual chatty self. “You know all those times the other Avengers tell me to shut up? You should tell them about this right here.”) it’s clear there is still a sense of more than friends emotions still lingering there. They are opposites that connect. Carol is never shy about showing her annoyance for him - which tends to put a smile on Peter’s face followed by a joke. Peter also opens up to her about his worries with money, something he rarely does in a serious manner. It’s also important to note that with his identity retconned not long ago that Carol knew Peter was Spider-man before his family. With Superior Spider-man going on it’s hard to place what will happen to the friendship between them whenever Peter comes back. Even without romance the two of them have a bond that, much like their fighting styles, may seem strange but fits perfectly.Where to read more: Ms. Marvel: Annual #1, Siege: Spider-man, Spider-Island: Avengers, New Avengers Annual #1, New Avengers Finale, basically New Avengers vol. 1 and 2, Ms. Marvel Vol. 2 #41-43 & #47, Amazing Spider-man #653 & #694, Avenging Spider-man #9-10, Captain Marvel #1.
