Marvel are releasing a OGN by Mark Waid and James Robinson set before Superior Spider-Man that deals with Peter's long lost sister Teresa.

In Family Business, the Kingpin is organizing a large crime syndicate and it's Peter Parker, not Spider-Man, who finds himself under attack, Waid says. The ruthless supervillain has "finally decided to expand his criminal empire on a global scale — if Spidey can't stop him."

But before Peter can figure out who's after him, a mysterious woman in a convertible screeches to a halt in front of him, and she tells him she's his long-lost sister, Teresa. The two of them never knew anything about each other, but Peter hops in the car anyway to get the bottom of the situation.

Reason why I ain't mad

1) It's a story with peter parker

2) Mark Waid is writing it

3) Exploring theme of peter's family is hardly touched on

Two of my favorite writers are tackling this. I'm intrigued.

The worst part about this isn't that Peter has a long lost sister. The worst part is that this involved the goddamn Kingpin!

Thats my thoughts but damn its weird to think of Pete having a sister -.o Except I always hated Waid on Spider-man.

Same here, also it does add to the dynamic and opens up new avenues. Personally I prefer the sister angle than Doc Ock ever becoming Spider-man. Also I'm letting a little hope appear that this bleeds into the main title, once Peter's back, because it's very rare that Original Graphic Novels lead to something in the main titles.

@animehunter: @theacidskull: NOOOOOOOOO NOOOOOOOOOOOOO NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

And to answer the $64,000 dollar question, Family Business is set before the events of Superior Spider-Man. So the story will be pure Peter Parker “to make it a "a little more outside-audience friendly," Waid explained.

WHY WHY WHY did you do it Slott (I know, a rhetorical question), and why Waid, why set it up before Superior, why not give us something to look forward to after SpOck

Dammit. Well i still might by it. Maybe if we buy enough tjinhs about pre Dr.ock apidey ( like that wolverine issue and this) and less superior spiderman maybe they will start getting that we want peter back as spidey.

Yep, Waid is talented, but I don't like him on Spider-Man (sorry @theacidskull). I've got to be honest, I'm not thrilled on the storyline, but at least it involves Peter, and I think its another sign showing the writers in Marvel don't like the Superior Spider-Man idea. Which is all good......

Oh have you read Savage Wolverine Six?

@laflux: Yeah the seeing the Peter/Elektra interaction made me miss Pete as Spider-man even more.Forgot how funny he can actually be at times.

@strider92: Yeah I've bought it but haven't got round to reading it. To be fair the only reason I've picked up the arc is because its a Comic in which Wolverine has been notoriously knocked around in, Spider-Man is in there, and given the last two encounters Logan has had with Kaine and SpOck, surely a concrete face plant is on the cards?


F*ck you slott.

To be fair, if it was set after Superior Spider-Man, it would undermine Slott, who said that Superior Spider-Man is the status qou- even though we know Peter is going to come back sooner or later. Though saying that, if Slott did have the carpet swept under his feet so to speak, do you think he will go on a massive hate filled rant like Liefeld did with Deathstroke. I seen him as a nice guy from all his interviews, though admittedly, that was before Dying Wish...........

@strider92: @laflux: WHY U NO LIKE WAID?

Because whenever he writes Spider-man he tends to low-ball him and downplay his character in general.


and i think we can agree that YOST should be writing spider-man :P

Damn straight!

Well given that Wolverine beat Hulk in one of those issues i'm not sure........but yeah it could happen.

it was just done for a gag, not to be taken seriously -__-

I don't doubt it was a gag but what I was inferring was that if the writer was quite happy to allow Wovlerine to beat Hulk what chance does Spider-man have lol?

The last two times Waid has wrote Spider-Man he has made him look like a jealous needy man-child trying to use Black Cat as a rebound girl, and losing out Daredevil. And having Spider-Man (be it SpOck) jobbing to Stilt-man, and having Daredevil help him out. I half expect Kingpin to be giving Peter his @ss to have Daredevil jump out from shadows and pressure point Kingpin unconscious, before seducing Peter's sister...........

That being said I can't fault his work on Hulk (this is coming from someone who enjoyed the Gravage "stay angry" arc alot), or his work on Daredevil as a whole.

@theacidskull: Well I've dropped Superior Spider-Man a few issues back, and I'm only going to be reading it, for stuff like to see his new suit (which looks boss), and for the 2099 crossover, so I have space on my list. And besides, any story involving Peter Parker is a good story right now.......

Marvel's trying to calm down Peter's fans by giving some Pete to the crowd? Hmmm...Nevertheless, it's a blatant and flagrant stupidity. It's obvious now. Reptilians took over the world and made Marvel destroy Peter Parker for the many defeats of the Lizard. It's obvious...
