Powers and Abilities
- Jake Conover wrote the article The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man! which appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #248.
- The Rose appeared as a part of Nguyen Ngoc Coy's alliance against Don Fortunato in Spider-Man #73-74, by Howard Mackie and John Romita Jr.; since the Rose's secret identity was a plot featured in Tom DeFalco's Amazing Spider-Man, it could be presumed that Mackie and Romita did not even know who DeFalco wanted to be under the Rose's mask, so Romita mistakenly draw Conover identical as Richard Fisk, the original Rose.
