Worried that Normie will end up like his father or grandfather, Allan tries to get rid of Spider-Man by tricking his wife Spinneret (Mary Jane) into wearing the Venom symbiote, claiming it was an organic biotech suit meant to unleash a human's hidden potential so Spinneret wouldn't rely on Regent's tech to drain her husband's powers to fight.
The character made her cinematic debut in the 2002 film Spider-Man, portrayed by actress Sally Livingstone.
Liz Allan is first named in The Amazing Spider-Man #4 (September 1963), the same issue in which Betty Brant first appears.
In Amazing Spider-Man #28 (September 1965), Peter and Liz graduate from high school.
At the graduation ceremony, Liz admits her feelings to Peter, and says she has come to accept the fact that they are unrequited.
Recently, she has been shown in a new alliance with Norman Osborn as he attempts to re-establish himself as a corporate figure - apparently using an alias as his activities as the Green Goblin have made his true name too public -, working with him to ensure her son's future.
