Peter Parker is busy trying to help save his roommate Boomerang from the Kingpin and the continued hitmen from the mayor’s mob. However, she is now also trying to help her other roommate, Randy Robertson, with his love life.
Randy Robertson is dating a supervillain named Beetle, who also happens to be the daughter of the villain Tombstone. His father is infamous in the Spider-Man comics as the villain who tormented the beloved Robbie Robertson and was responsible for sending the respected journalist to prison at one point. Randy has been dating the daughter of his father’s old enemy, and Peter had words of warning for his roommate.

Robbie Robertson and Tombstone found out in the last issue that their children were dating and both men were furious. Robbie told his son that he was disappointed and that he would wait until Beetle ended up in prison so that his son would know the mistake he was making. Tombstone went crazy and broke his place, screaming that no daughter of his would date a Robertson, causing him to leave. The two of them went to meet their friends to talk about things. For Beetle, they were his fellow supervillains. For Randy, it was Peter Parker.
Beetle had dinner with his supervillain friends and told them about his confrontation with his father, Tombstone, after learning what happened. That led them to ask how the two met. Beetle explained how he went to kill Boomerang, and saw his roommate Randy, and they immediately started flirting. Of course, all his evil friends agreed that this was romantic and like Romeo and Juliet. However, they told him that it would never work because he was someone who would try to change her. Turns out that’s exactly what Randy thinks he can do.
While eating pizza, Randy told Peter that he was dating a supervillain and how his father reacted. Peter tells his roommate that he’s been in this situation before … and agrees with Robbie that Randy needs to break up with her. After reminding Randy that she is a criminal, Peter gives her one last piece of advice: Have a real conversation with her about your expectations.
Spider-Man has been in a similar situation to Randy’s in the past. He dated Black Cat as Spider-Man and did not reveal his identity to her for a long time. He really felt that he could change her and help her become a better person. However, it didn’t really work out that way, although she has become a hero most of the time, and a lot of that could have to do with Spider-Man. However, it took too long for him to have the conversation with Black Cat, and when he unmasked himself and revealed that he was Peter Parker, the mystery was gone and Black Cat didn’t feel the same. It was a difficult time for both of them, and if anyone knows what Randy Robertson might be going through, it could be Peter Parker.
