Denise Russo is Peter's blind girlfriend. She first appeared in September 20, 1988. She then appeared in a story arc where Peter took her to La Maison Rouge. She then appeared in one where Mike Barnes teased her, causing Peter to punch him in the nose. First, she was mad at Peter when she heard about it, up until the point where she found out he was teasing her. She appeared in a story arc where Peter was in love with another girl. She's appeared in one where Paige was dancing with some sleazy guy. She appeared in one where she and Peter were home alone studying. She's also appeared in one where Peter came over for Thanksgiving. After that, she mostly appeared in short comics like ones where Peter lies to Andy so he can go to Denise's and ones where he had to get rid of Paige, Jason and/or Marcus so he can have some alone time with her. She then was mentioned in one where Jason used his telescope to spy on her.  She was phased out of the strips but has been mentioned in a Sunday strip when Peter was grounded and dressed up as Paige in an attempt to escape and go to her house. Another one is when Paige blackmails him into driving her to the mall by saying, "I know what you and your girlfriend really did last Friday night" hinting that she and Peter did you know what.
