In Family Business, the Kingpin is organizing a large crime syndicate and it's Peter Parker, not Spider-Man, who finds himself under attack, Waid says. The ruthless supervillain has "finally decided to expand his criminal empire on a global scale — if Spidey can't stop him."
But before Peter can figure out who's after him, a mysterious woman in a convertible screeches to a halt in front of him, and she tells him she's his long-lost sister, Teresa. The two of them never knew anything about each other, but Peter hops in the car anyway to get the bottom of the situation.
"The story is moving at such a breakneck speed that there's not much of a chance to catch a breath," Waid says. "He has every reason to be skeptical about who this woman is and who she says she is."
About this new character, the writer describes her as "the anti-Peter. She's got it all together, she's smooth as silk. She's Modesty Blaise."
