Peter Parker Can’t Remember A Thing In Joshua Hale Fialkov’s SPIDER-MAN Infinite Comic
The cat is out of the bag and it seems the entire world knows that Doc Ock‘s days as the Superior Spider-Man are numbered. This April we’ll see Peter Parker fight his way back into control of his body as The Amazing Spider-Man series gets relaunched by Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos. While it seems everyone is happy Pete‘s back, the return isn’t going to be an easy one. Writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Juan Bobillo will be exploring what happens when Peter wakes up in their new Infinite Comic.
A 13-issue Spider-Man Infinite series was announced today by Marvel. Ultimates writer Joshua Hale Fialkov, with a watchful eye from Spider-Man writer Dan Slott, will show what happens when Peter wakes up in his new body with no memories and a bag of stolen cash in his hands. Says Fialkov of the series and his amnesiac Spidey:
The story starts with Peter Parker having lost all of his memory. He doesn’t know who he is. He’s in the process of robbing a bank, and doing so wearing a full body stocking. He finds out, in the process of the first installment, that he’s Spider-Man. According to the Daily Bugle, of course, Spider-Man is reportedly a menace, a bad guy. At this point he has no choice but to continue along with the scheme. If you remove identity and get to the core of who Peter Parker really is, is he a hero? Does his heroism go beyond Uncle Ben dying, beyond Gwen and Captain Stacy dying? All the people and things he’s lost. All those sacrifices. At his heart—as a blob of tissue, removed from all personality and experience—would he act as a hero, when presented with the opportunities of a villain?
Nothing can even be easy for Peter Parker, not even getting his body back. Fialkov sounds like he’s really going to strip both Spider-Man and Peter down to the basics and see what makes him the person we know him as. And by the end we’ll probably see the old Peter Parker we know and love back in full force. You can read the full interview with the writer by clicking the source link below.
