Memorable Quotes

"I don't know you, buddy."

"Not yet."

- Hiro Nakamura, Peter Petrelli (Collision)


  • It is unclear how Peter can scar since he has absorbed Claire's rapid cell regeneration. Writers Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite said about Peter's scar, "First, it is not a mistake, Peter can regenerate, but he still has the scar. Secondly, we'll show you how later on in the series. We promise". Since Peter later lost this power to his father Arthur Petrelli, this may be no longer an issue. Since Heroes was cancelled, it was never explained how he gained the scar.
  • Two different future Peters have the scar.
  • According to Greg Beeman's blog, Wendi Allison is responsible for applying Peter's scar on Milo Ventimiglia.
  • While trying to stop Arthur, Peter suffers a deep scrape from a telekinetic attack across the side of his face. (Our Father)
