  1. Having not read any original Spider-Man comics, did not realize Vanessa Fisk was in the series. Thought having her character in the Daredevil Netflix series was very neat.

    1. Both her and the Kingpin made their comic debuts in The Amazing Spider-Man. Kingpin in issue 50 and Vanessa in issue 70.
