"If only Peter were here! He's the only one I can turn to... But, it's too late! Everything's too late... And Bennett is dead... Because of Spider-Man!!"
— Betty Brant

Betty Brant (of Earth-616) is the former secretary of the DB!. Over the years Betty has been both a co-worker and love interest to Peter Parker and now considers him to be her best friend.


Betty Brant originally had bright blue eyes, but recently her eye color has been depicted as brown. However, her hairstyle changes constantly. Her clothes have also changed with the times.


Early Life

Not too much is known about Betty's life as a child. She dropped out of High School in Philadelphia, to come to New York and work as a secretary to the publisher of the daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson. Betty and Peter began their relationship shortly after his employment began. He was impressed that Betty stood up to Jameson for slandering Spider-Man, and she admired the way Peter cared for his sick aunt. Their relationship grew fast, and she became Peter's first serious girlfriend.

Betty dropped out of High School to move to New York, and help her brother, Bennett Brant, pay off some of his gambling debt. He acquired these debts trying to pay off his mother's medical bills. Both Betty and Bennett were captured by Doctor Octopus, in order to prevent anyone from foiling his attempt at leaving the country, and her brother was shot and killed during a battle between Ock, Spider-Man, and Blackie Gaxton (the man whom Bennett owed his debts). Betty blamed Spider-Man, and proclaimed that she never wanted to see him again. Her and Peter's romantic relationship, however, grew even stronger.
