Mark Waid and James Robinson Introduce Peter Parker’s Sister In ‘Spider-Man: Family Business’


Like many Marvel characters, Spider-Man's relationship with his parents is a tragic one. That said, his parents' lives aren't really explored in depth very often, at least not recently. But Marvel is taking a new look at Richard and Mary Parker, as the publisher has announced Spider-Man: Family Business. Written by Mark Waid and James Robinson and illustrated by Gabrielle Dell'Otto, Family Business focuses on Peter Parker learning more about his deceased spy parents, and discovering that he has a long lost sister.In an interview with USA Today, Waid described the tale -- which will see Peter go from New York City to Monte Carlo to Cairo -- as a "spy" story. It kicks off with the Kingpin attempting to expand his criminal empire, which leads to Peter Parker, the son of former CIA agents, finding himself under attack. As he's attempting to figure out what's happening, a woman in a convertible pulls up in front of him, and claims to be his long lost sister Teresa.

Writer Mark Waid and artists Chris Samnee and Jordie Bellaire have created a story that fits right into the exquisitely pulp-meets-pin-up milieu Stevens innovated, where pre-war stunt pilot Cliff Secord "borrows" an experimental rocket pack to impress his beleaguered model/actress girlfriend Betty and accidentally becomes the brave but somewhat blundering adventure hero known as the Rocketeer...
