Ol' Groove's Request Line: "What If Peter Parker Had Become Nova?" by Wolfman, Andru, and Giacoia

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Ever since Ol' Groove shared the Walt Simonson and George Perez chapters of What If #15 (April 1979) waaaaaaaaaaaaay back in September 2009 (you can read that post here), one of the most oft-requested tales for posting here in Groove City is the "What If Peter Parker Had Become Nova" section of that self-same mag. Written by Marv Wolfman (who was writing both Amazing Spider-Man and Nova--at least for one more ish--at the time) and illustrated by Ross Andru and Frank Giacoia (who'd been illustrating ASM for a huge chunk of the Groovy Age), this is the story you've been clamoring for! Peter Parker as...Nova!?! Dig it, baby!

  1. I forgot how much I hated this loser version of Peter Parker. I thought the ending was pretty stupid. The next chapter a 17 year old kid name Mike Mikulovsky. Finds the Nova suit & learns with Great Power comes Great Responsbility! Blue Blazes! Ya Baby! Don't be a Adolph Quitler! LOL
