Friends and Allies


White Tiger and Spider-Man

White Tiger and Spider-Man.

Ava and Peter first met when he as Spider-Man had difficulty controlling his motorcycle. She took control and helped him out. Shortly afterwards, she introduced herself to him and watched as he initially chose not to join S.H.I.E.L.D. which made her happy, due to a previous bet she had made. During Spider-Man's battle against the Frightful Four, the two saved each other, with White Tiger doing it for Spider-Man first and Spider-Man doing it lastly.

The two adventured together to confront Doctor Doom after Nova saw the group fit to do so. Ava fought by his side during their first battle against Venom and watched as he was consumed by the latter. She grew tried of Spider-Man's collaboration with Iron Man, mainly because of the latter's then-recent suit he had received from his new mentor. She advised him to stop using it, but still aided him in saving Iron Man after the latter was seized by the Living Laser.

Her and Spider-Man's first solo adventure together would be against the Taskmaster, whom donned the disguise of a gym teacher at their school in an attempt to find the former. After failing a P.E. test, Ava would not let the injustice go unavenged and dragged Spider-Man into confronting him on a saturday. The next day, she called him on his cell phone and ordered him to get down to the school, which he abided by and did so. Despite her initial unwillingness to go in without the instructions of their other team members, Spider-Man convinced her otherwise and the two went inside. Following their team up, she, Spider-Man and their teammates were called in over a Spider-Man impersonator. Despite Spider-Man's wish to not allow him to join the group, she and the others were towards the impersonator's induction as the group's sixth member. As Spider-Man sneezed, White Tiger hoped that she would not catch his cold. Her fears became a reality and she caught it, alongside the rest of the group and attacked him with the others for giving it to him.

As Peter rejected his teammates attempts to get him to allow them to copy his homework, Ava compliment Peter as being the only one of the four to actually possess integrity. However, she took back her compliment by reminding them that his abilities as a superhero had consumed much of his time, causing him much frustration. She and the others noticed his strangeness later that day, as he had switched bodies with Wolverine. She fought alongside Spider-Man against a Frost Giant and the two related as Thor treated them like mere children. Soon afterwards, she went with Spider-Man and the others to Asgard, in an effort to defeat Loki. They succeed and soon Ava became embittered over Spider-Man's reveal to the group that he had known Venom's secret identity and wasn't going to tell anyone. She reacted angrily, urging her teammates and Nick Fury to allow her to get the information out of him.

She and the others played a prank on Spider-Man by having Nova call him on his cell phone and claim to be in dire battle conditions. As Spider-Man ran out and slipped on ice, she and the others laughed at him. Ava and Peter went with the other three to a desert island and had an enjoyable time on its beach. She joined Spider-Man and the rest of the group in facing Sandman. She and Spider-Man helped the others chase their foe down and later took a shower with them as well. During the Goblin's rise, Spider-Man restricted her from getting involved in his duties to defeat the villain and blamed himself for her injuries during the group's initial fight against it. She and the others came to his aid regardless and mourned over his seeming death after sinking with the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier before he revealed himself to them, causing White Tiger and the others to surround him. Shortly afterwards, he allowed White Tiger and the rest of the group to reside at his home.

Ava reported to Spider-Man a sighting of a foe before moving in to confront it herself and being defeated. After defeating the foe, Peter rushed her and the others back to their shared home. During Ava's time of being the lone ranger and going along with her powers, Spider-Man tried to encourage her to fight her inner demons and not give in. During this motivational speech, he tried to convince her that she was part of his family and that he really cared for her. However, Ava did not believe that and instead went off on her own again. Spider-Man found himself having to chase her down and prevented her from falling into a trap at the hands of Kraven the Hunter. He then told her about Uncle Ben's murder and how that made him into what he is today, something he's never told his other teammates. Shortly afterwards, she had a training session with him and the rest of the group. Though she and the others tried hard, they failed to successfully get Spider-Man or attack him. She later came to his aid against the Sinister Six, where she again fought Kraven the Hunter.

Iron Fist

As the group tried to save a few civilians, White Tiger instructed Danny to save a few children. During their fight against Electro, Iron Fist responded to White Tiger's earlier question if anyone had noticed the former's voice change during his electrical transmissions.

Power Man

White Tiger met Power Man after either her own or his joining of the S.H.I.E.L.D. trainees. During their introductions to Spider-Man, she tried to introduce him to the latter as his real name, only to be redirected to his alias after seeing Spider-Man's.


White Tiger first met Nova either after Nova joined S.H.I.E.L.D. or she did. During their work as a team, she grew tired of his constant referrals to himself as the team's leader. She even mocked him during the group's watching of Spider-Man's entry into their team. As Nova ran to confront the real Doctor Doom at Latveria, White Tiger  and her teammates chased him. During the group's attempt to find Spider-Man after he was captured by Doctor Octopus, White Tiger angrily told him to get out of the way as she and the others followed the Octobot they were using to find Spider-Man's location. During the group's attempt to find Electro, she and the others were thrusted by Spider-Man's Electro controlled motorcycle. She complained that Nova had tried to kill them, to which he denied involvement in doing so.
