Ok Peni Parker from Spiderverse was wasted potential. Don’t get me wrong, I love Peni Parker. She’s really cute and memorable, but I seriously feel like the writers wasted an opportunity with her. I get she’s a side character but hear me out. Almost nobody expected Peni to be in Spiderverse, since she was pretty unmentioned to the general public. But when her design was introduced, she gained a lot of attention, especially since her comic book counterpart isnt really wellknown. And unlike Noir and Ham, this was her first time into the spotlight outside of comics. But she doesn’t really feel important and that sucks. Yes she fixed the goober, but I kinda felt like she should’ve done more, especially in fight scenes. Although she kinda redeems herself with fighting Scorpion. It kinda sucks that people either remember her for being racist/inferior to the other Spider Men due to her artstyle, or just cute. There’s a lot of potential with her. She’s not just cute, she’s also good with machines, is implied to be pretty ruthless and fierce from her facial expressions and the art book, and is prideful about her skills(“Can you rewrite a mainframe while being shot at?”), but she’s still caring, like her elbowing Noir for being insensitive to Miles’ freak out and her expressing that it’s nice that they’re not alone before leaving. She has some good potential for a spin-off movie. And she even fits into “Anyone can be the hero.” Peni in the comics has to become a hero due to her dad dying, so she accepts it. Overall, Peni needs more love from both the writers and the fans, because she has a lot of untapped potential that’s waiting to be explored. Also she’s cute AF and I want to protect her and her smile.
