    • Valerie: Anti-Hero Origin, Costume, & Weapons
      The way how Valerie becomes one of Danny's archenemies is oddly similar to how Harry Osborn became the second Green Goblin, one of Spider-Man's archenemies. Valerie blames Danny Phantom for her sudden poverty and unpopularity, even though it was not directly his fault, which is very similar to how Harry blames Spider-Man for the cause of his father's (the original Green Goblin) death, which is also not directly Spider-Man's fault. Driven by her anger, Valerie receives strange weapons and gadgets to hunt down the bane of her unhappiness. Harry does nearly the same thing; the spirit of his father led him to a hidden room in their house filled with the Green Goblin weapons and gadgets and uses them to try to destroy Spider-Man. Valerie's skin-tight costume and jet sled is very similar to Harry's skin-tight costume and his "Goblin Glider." In addition, the razor discs that Valerie uses at one point in the episode is very similar to the "Razor Bats." Also, the way how Valerie's gloves glowed pink seems to suggest that she could shoot energy blasts from her fingers, just like the Green Goblin's.
