All the more puzzling that they used 2/3 of The Enforcers, leaving out Fancy Dan and renaming Montana to the (very generic) "Cowboy".
I suspect they negotiated the rights for a certain number of characters and created their own look-a-likes or changed the names when they needed more.

Technically Spider-Girl takes place in a separate future reality of the regular Marvel comics, but don't let that stop you from reading some great stories."
