(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1 (fb) - BTS) - The Spider-Man of Earth-29955 was among the heroes who opposed the High Evolutionary's plan to promote world peace by turning the planet's population into werewolves. Figuring that wolves were pack animals, the Evolutionary reasoned the new and improved mankind would live together in peace.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1 (fb) - BTS) - When Spider-Man and his fellow heroes failed to stop the High Evolutionary, the villain had his revenge by turning his opponents into a type of animal that (were)wolves would hunt: pigs. Now known as the Spider-Swine, Peter Parker continued on as a hero.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1 (fb)) - Spider-Swine had a traumatic run in with Kraven the Hunter that ended in the villain's untimely death. The encounter left Spider-Swine psychologically scarred and unhinged, often believing himself to be Kraven the Hunt-Pig.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1 (fb) - BTS) - Eager to undo the dismal present he found himself living in, the Spider-Swine convinced Doctor Strange to magically transport him back in time. Strange set a few ground rules: Swine could only manifest himself through a connection with his past self and he was not allowed to reveal himself or tell himself too much or else the Swine would not be able to return to his present.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1) - Appearing in the past during the time period Spider-Man was knocked out for two weeks on board the SHIELD Helicarrier, the Spider-Swine kept himself hidden inside a cell and waited for Peter Parker to wake up. Reaching out to his groggy past self without opening the door, Spider-Swine began to subtly coach and coax Peter Parker to try and prevent the High Evolutionary's scheme that was already unfolding at Ferrett World, a theme park in Florida secretly run by AIM.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1 - BTS) - Despite the aid of Nick Fury and Wolverine, Spider-Man had proven unable to stop the High Evolutionary from advancing his plans to turn mankind into werewolves. Sensing his mission was already a failure and the way home closed, Spider-Swine decided to step in and take an active hand.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle I#1) - Revealing himself to a baffled Spider-Man, the Spider-Swine took the fight to the High Evolutionary who thought himself safe inside a giant robot replica of himself. Using his strength and agility, Spider-Swine made his way up the massive machine all the while reliving his warped, self imagined origin as Kraven the Hunt-Pig. His delusional state didn't hinder his performance: Spider-Swine breached the Evolutionary's command center, knocked out the villain and dragged him outside. Briefly relishing his victory, he was unaware an evil, animatronic Nick Fury was manipulating the damaged Evolutionary robot, causing it to crush the porcine do-gooder with one of its giant fists.
(Spider-Man: Full Circle - BTS) - Covered in the splattered remains of his alternate future swine self, a rattled Spider-Man watched Wolverine and Nick Fury chase after the robotic Fury while he tried to figure out his next move.
Comments: Created by Jonathan Hickman, Chris
Bachalo & Tim Townsend (et al)
The story told in Spider-Man: Full Circle is a little out there, but what do you expect from a book that was written and drawn by seven different creative teams who all did a chapter of an ongoing story they only after the fact tried to streamline and make sense of. The Spider-Swine gets his moment to shine and the subtle homage to the classic Kraven's Last Hunt storyline, complete with J.M. DeMatteis style prose captions is pure fun.
It *is* a bit of a shame we didn't get to see a pigged out
Stephen Strange though.
