His Amazing Friends I#1) - As Angelica Jones and her friend Norma
Osborn got ready for a super hero costume party, Ms. Lion played in
front of a mirror with a mask, ultimately scaring herself and running
underneath May Parker's bed. May beckoned Ms. Lion to come out from
under the bed to see Angelica and Norma before they left for their
Eastern State University party. Later, as Norma Osborn recounted how
she was saved from the Green Goblin by the Spider-Friends, Ms. Lion
listened intently until she was asked what she thought of Spider-Man.
Knowing that Peter Parker was Spider-Man due to her canine senses, Ms.
Lion thought about she loved Spider-Man and leapt into the lap of Peter
(Amazing Spider-Man III#7/2) - After
transported to Earth-1983 and killed Firestar and Iceman, Ms. Lion ran
up as Morlun grabbed Spider-Man and began draining the life from the
hero. Barking her best at Morlun in an attempt to protect her masters,
Ms. Lion could howl in grief as Morlun successfully killed Spider-Man
and transported away.
Comments: Created by Dan Slott, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Cam Smith.
Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends#1 (1981) adapted
the Spider-Man & His Amazing
Friends cartoon episode "Triumph of the Green Goblin" into
comic form, albeit with some differences such as the whole Mona vs.
Norma Osborn debate, Green Goblin wearing a costume vs. physically
transforming into goblin form and Eastern State University vs. Empire State University. Since Amazing Spider-Man III#7 showed a
reality similar to Earth-8107 (the Amazing
Friends cartoon), calling it Earth-1983, it stands to reason
that perhaps the comic adaptation is also Earth-1983 with the cartoon
staying Earth-8107. Therefore, this reality's Ms. Lion first appeared
in Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends#1 rather than Amazing
Spider-Man III#7, as original stated.
Earth-1983 is a similar Earth to Earth-8107, the
reality of the Spider-Man & His
Amazing Friends cartoon. The two are separate realities and
should not be confused with one another.
Ms. Lion was miscolored a greyish-brown in the
Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends#1 comic but Amazing Spider-Man
III#7 corrected her hair color to match that of her Earth-8107
Profile by Proto-Man.
