Peter Parker (Earth-51977) 001

The past history of Peter Parker of Earth-51977 would mirror that of his Earth-616 counterpart until the day Peter was bitten by a radioactive spider at a science exhibition. However, the bite caused him to pass out and he was brought to a hospital. Upon hearing the news, Peter's Aunt May suffered a fatal heart attack. Though the doctors were able to save his life from the radiation poisoning, Peter's legs were paralyzed, and the doctors were unsure if he would ever walk again.

Peter blamed himself for May's death and came to think of himself as a jinx, telling his friend Betty Brant to leave him as he felt that it would only be a matter of time before she died too. Peter dedicated himself to science and became a student of Professor Miles Warren, and, while doing some experiment alone in the lab, got blasted by a green bolt and became Nova.

Reveling in his new powers, Peter decided to show them to his Uncle Ben and flew home. However, on his way to the house, he saw a burglar breaking in. Peter crashed through the wall just as the burglar pulled his gun's trigger, causing the bullet to ricochet off of Peter's costume and strike the burglar, killing him.

Blaming himself, Peter tried to turn himself in for murder, but the police considered it to just be self-defense. Not listening to his uncle's words of optimism about what he could do with his powers, Peter forsaked his powers and tossed the Nova costume into a trash can.


Seemingly those of the Richard Rider of Earth-616 when he first got his powers.


Seemingly those of the Peter Parker of Earth-616.
