Has the "With great power" series ever been referred to again?

This might sound stupid a lot of people hated With Great Power , but I was wondering if any other writer has ever addressed Peter's retconned "first love" Tiffany? The sleazy middle-aged woman who took advantage of him when he was a wrestler and he lost his virginity to? 
 
I know a lot of people found that retcon hideous and disrespectful but i actually really loved the idea that his "first love" was monstrous and thought it was interesting

haha. yeah. It happened in a miniseries from a few years back focusing on his wrestling days. he was taken advantage of by a sleazy cougar who was also "managing" his career. if i recall she had a pimp or a drug dealer set up various crimes for spider-man to benefit from stopping. Peter was young and thought he was in love and i think they slept together at one point, but it's been a long time since i read it...  it was silly and serious big retcon... that i thought was interesting idea but understand if it's been rightfully forgotten by all.

@X35: Wait, this was a Marvel Knights series.

Oh good, it's not canon.

@InnerVenom123: are Marvel Knights series "Non-canon" by default? wasn't Daredevil a marvel knights series?
#8 Posted by InnerVenom123 (29499 posts) - - Show Bio

@X35: Yes, but apparently this Marvel Knights series isn't canon.

Or something.

Even if it "is" canon, it's not.

Because that's an insanely stupid plot and I hate it and everyone with half a brain who likes Spider-man should hate it.

@InnerVenom123: Haha. don't get me wrong, it was a horrible idea but it was certainly interesting. plus, In a world where Gwen has osborn's baby, nothing is sacred.

Btw is there actually a statement or an interview where it says this isn't canon, or is it rather just common sense and taste and decency making you say its not canon?

Oh, that happened.

But Gwen was raped.

Not decency.

Sanity.

To my knowledge its not canon (fortunately) that's probably why it hasn't been referred to.

I remember reading this book, and I really hated it. All the characters seemed off and they looked really ugly (and uncle Ben had a mustache !!!)

Peter Parker
Ben Parker
Flash Thompson
Liz Allan

There are really good books set in Spidey's early career (Amazing Fantasy 16-18, Untold Tales of Spider-Man) but that's the worst I've ever read! There is no way this story could be canon!

I've read this book some years ago and I'm pretty sure he didn't lost his virginity to Tiffany.

HOWEVER !!!

@hectorsquall: It wasn't that bad (and Liz Allan looks good)... 
 
I just remember a bit where you saw outside of Tiffany's apartment after a scene there was creeking sound effects as Tiffany exclaimed "you know how to treat a girl right!!!".

@X35: I edited my previous post with the scan but I'm pretty sure it wasn't with Tiffany.

Tiffany: You stood me up you bad boy. I had the afternoon of your life planned, darling. But that's your loss.

just figured out he never slept with gwen

Yep, Gwen and Peter never slept together. When Gwen and Norman's kids showed up with superpowers, Peter had to get Gwen's DNA to test their idenities with since he knew it wasn't his because he had never slept with Gwen. It's what proved to Gwen's daughter that Peter wasn't their dad.
