Betty is one of Peter Parker's closest friends. They went to Midtown High together, and later they both work together at the Daily Bugle. Betty likes Peter's kind, tender heart and his noble soul, and the two are very close to each other, comforting each other in their times of need. Betty doesn't like J. Jonah Jameson abusing Peter emotionally and mentally, but she knows that there's nothing she can do.
Betty Brant was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
