Talk:Peter's scar

Can anybody else think of a better place to put this? It's not in the portals, so I'd like to give it an infobox and add it to a portal, but "events" seems wrong. That said, I can't think of a better place for it. Items seems equally wrong.--Hardvice (talk) 04:42, 4 February 2007 (EST)

  • We could make Portal:Symbols and Category:Symbols into a "Miscellaneous". That would work out nicely since the mark is also a scar, not a symbol.--Hardvice (talk) 04:44, 4 February 2007 (EST)
    • I don't think it would hurt in items, maybe as a subcat or see also. But changing Symbols to Miscellaneous would work also I guess. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:22, 4 February 2007 (EST)
      • We need to do something with Symbols. The mark doesn't really belong there, since it's not so much a symbol as a wound. Still Portal:Wounds is probably a tad too restrictive. If there were a way to do a category for appearance items, we could do Jessica's tattoo and Peter's emo hair, too. Oh, and Mr. Bennet's glasses.--Hardvice (talk) 15:28, 4 February 2007 (EST)
      • Howabout this:
        1. Restore Plot Points as a catch-all for things that don't fit well anywhere else (The Mark, The Symbol, Peter's scar, and Jessica's tattoo if we really want it to be an article). We can call it something else if we want to, like Objects or something.
        2. Make Items, Weapons, Publications, Research, Artwork, Media, and Money subcats of Plot Points.
        3. Add an items article for Mr. Bennet's glasses. I was totally kidding, but now that I think about it, it'd be kind of cool.
That actually saves us two spots on Portal:Portals.--Hardvice (talk) 17:50, 4 February 2007 (EST)
  • Oh, wow, back to Plot Points. Okay, yeah, actually, I guess that would work. I don't think there's an easy solution because there's no catchall. I wish I could think of something to describe personal marks & appearances, but I can't. And if "Miscellaneous" doesn't work, then I guess Plot Points would be the best option.

    I totally thought you were serious about Mr. Bennet's glasses - I've been mulling that one around for quite some time. Now Peter's hair, on the other hand ... — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:03, 4 February 2007 (EST)

  • I know this is a drastically old discussion, but I thought I'd note that I redlinked Jessica's tattoo and Bennet's glasses for real. Both could be really good articles--Jessica's tattoo is occasionally the only appearance of the Symbol in an episode, and has its own scene in Run!. Bennet's glasses are important to the character, are the source of his nickname, have their own scene in Company Man, and are changed out for wire rims in Five Years Gone. We can say more about either than we can about, say, The Deveaux Society.--Hardvice (talk) 15:01, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
  • ... and not Peter's emo hair? ... Plus (and I'm noting it here more as a reminder to myself than anything else), Jessica's tattoo is pretty important in the painting of her when Isaac removes the dust or whatever. Incidentally, Tim Sale had something to say about that in a CBR interview (I think he designed the tattoo and Jeph changed it slightly). As for the glasses, there's the Unknown Man painting which is shot through his glasses. Oh! and that reminds me of the little "contest" that the directors have (was it Beeman that mentioned it?) to shoot creatively over-the-shoulder through Bennet's HRGs. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:31, 3 May 2007 (EDT)

Homecoming and Fallout

Does anyone else think this information is irrelevant and contradictory? Since it's healed... it can't possibly be the scar. --Riddler 01:06, 27 February 2007 (EST)

  • He could have an existing scar that isn't visible. In theory, scars are healed skin, so he would have scars before getting Claire's ability, so maybe we don't see the scar Hiro refers to.--Baldbobbo 01:09, 27 February 2007 (EST)
    • Not what I was getting at. The two bits of information, in this category, imply that the wounds he gets from his fall in Homecoming are the scar that Hiro talks about, which is impossible since they healed by Fallout. --Riddler 01:12, 27 February 2007 (EST)
      • Understood. I'll take them off since, as you pointed out, they don't add to the discussion of a scar since no scar was developed.--Baldbobbo 01:14, 27 February 2007 (EST)
        • I think the picture should remain though. Only facial damage Peter has sustained on the show so far.--Baldbobbo 01:15, 27 February 2007 (EST)


It's really speculation still to say that the cut Sylar gives Peter is the formation of the scar to which Future Hiro refers. I don't mind leaving the Parasite history here, but I just want to point out that this is not necessarily the same scar. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:46, 8 March 2007 (EST)

  • Particularly when it's no different from the Homecoming speculation that already bit us on the ass once, amirite?--Hardvice (talk) 13:50, 8 March 2007 (EST)
    • Well, I'm glad E! (always with the hard-hitting, in-depth coverage) has broken the story that the cut is not the scar. Grrreeaaattt.. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 17:45, 18 March 2007 (EDT)


Why this page doesn't have any gallery ? We could use the unused files (this one for exemple) and add some more with Hiro on future time line etc... --FrenchFlo(talk)(contribs) 14:52, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

  • Mostly because we're speculating where Peter got his scar. Really, this article is about the scar Future Hiro mentions to Peter on the New York subway (Hiros). We're assuming (and speculating) Sylar's slicing and dicing is how Peter gets his scar. The pic that's in the unused files is just a cut that took a little longer to heal than some of the other cuts that Peter sustained at Homecoming. I'm already a bit hesitant to put the Parasite reference here, for fear of speculating. We certainly shouldn't add the Homecoming pic, since that has nothing to do with the scar F_Hiro mentions. — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:10, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

What Would Happen If...

Sylar melted off half of Peter's face. Would he still be able regenerate it back?

  • Claire regenerated from "a walking skeleton" (Graphic Novel:Family Man), so I'd imagine he would, so long as his brain is in tact.--Bob 22:36, 12 April 2007 (EDT)

.07% preview

Didn't the end-of-the-show episode preview for 0.07% show Peter's scar? Can someone get a screen capture? --AverageMan 19:15, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

  • It did, and I'm sure there'll be a much better one next week. But remember, we shouldn't put any spoiler pics on this page (and yes, even preview pics are considered spoilers). — RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:42, 25 April 2007 (EDT)
    • I'm not sure what the explanation will be in the episode, but since Claire was not saved in Future Hiro's original past, Peter presumably never obtained her power. That would explain how he got a scar. --Ted C 20:13, 25 April 2007 (EDT)

Once it's explained... he got the scar, what's the point of the article then? I feel this article exists only because the scar is some mythical creature that we have only speculated on, but once it's revealed (and possibly explained that it cannot exist since Peter has Claire's ability), then it's something that won't happen.--Bob 11:28, 29 April 2007 (EDT)

  • It exists because it's been referred to but not explained. Once it's explained, it will still have been referred to but not explained for close to twenty episodes. It's the gun on the mantle in Act I, so to speak. I mean, Linderman's money is out of the picture, too, but we still have an article for it, right? This article will allow us to note when the scar was mentioned, and when and how it was paid off.--Hardvice (talk) 13:06, 29 April 2007 (EDT)

Why does he have a scar at all?

Does the future Peter have the scar because originally in the future Sylar killed Claire and was the one who exploded and thus Peter didn't meet Claire and cant heal so thus has the scar? But when Hiro changed the past, then it turned out that Nathan exploded instead of Sylar, but then Peter would have encountered Claire so future Peter should have healed his scar...unles he doesn't want to because that would give away that ability of his. Maybe he got the scar in a public forum and doesn't want to heal it...Still it really seems that future Peter shouldn't have the scar after Future Hiro's visit to the past.--ASEO 16:15, 2 May 2007 (EDT)

  • He may have gotten it during a fight in which The Haitian was nearby, so perhaps he couldn't heal it and perhaps the power doesn't remove scars if the injury is sustained in the absence of the ability to heal it. (Admin 16:21, 2 May 2007 (EDT))
    • Maybe he didn't fully master Claire's power.--Ice Vision 16:26, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
      • He seems to have mastered all the other powers he has. I would think that once the Haitian was gone he would be able to heal the scar if he wanted.--ASEO 16:31, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
      • That's not what I meant. I was saying that he hadn't master Claire's power when he first got cut. He was still a novice at his ability at that time. By the time he mastered Claire's power, the wound had already healed into a scar, so Claire's power couldn't heal it because it was already healed.--Ice Vision 14:54, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
        • Perhaps. We haven't really seen enough to tell either way. However if you think of her power as a type of enhanced cellular regeneration (which is pretty much what they call it anyway) then if there are no cells that need to be regenerated then nothing would happen. With a scar the cells have regenerated on their own already. Maybe we'll find out for sure eventually. (Admin 16:38, 2 May 2007 (EDT))
          • The writers have said in an interview (I really wish I could remember which) that there is a reason for it, despite Claire's power, and that NBC keeps pestering them about it, too. Anybody know where this was? I think it was a CBR Behind-the-Eclipse. In any case, that makes me reasonably sure we will find out at some point.--Hardvice (talk) 17:22, 2 May 2007 (EDT)

Milo's got a gun

I've been told several times that the scar is real and not make-up. Is this true?

  • I don't think so. --Norman 20:07, 2 May 2007 (EDT)
    • It's make-up. And what's this have to do with Milo having a gun?--Ice Vision 00:16, 3 May 2007 (EDT)

Spill the beans, anonymous poster!--ERROR 11:10, 13 June 2009 (EDT)


Did anyone notice that when Peter stopped time while rescuing Hiro and Ando from Homeland Security, his scar glowed for a moment? I can't tell on the NBC online video since it's a bit blurred. DannyP 16:54, 3 May 2007 (EDT)

  • On the iTunes version, I did not notice this (and I watched that scene a few times). --Bob 17:00, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
    • I just watched it on my w4r3z version and there is nothing special to notice about the scar. -- FrenchFlo (talk)        17:06, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
      • Yeah, the first time I watched it, I really did think I saw Peter's scar glow. But, if not, it doesn't really matter. DannyP 17:15, 3 May 2007 (EDT)


In the teaser for Season Three, Peter has the scar. I suspect we'll know the reason this season? -- Fill-in Poster: ERROR 11:13, 13 June 2009 (EDT)


In the explosion future (season 1) Peter's scar was much worse than in the exposed future (season 3) this change in the time lines could have changed the severity of the scar. Perhaps the reason for the scar not healing is that it is part of his guilt for all the things he has done wrong, and by stopping himself killing new york the scar is diminished. --Omni314 08:50, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Changing the future

Anyone else notice that Peter has appeared to finally obtain his scar? That's right, the one on his cheek. If Sylar hadn't come by and telekinetically pushed Peter, that scar would have struck him square in the center of his face, right where it is in every iteration of him in the future. --Ricard Desi 11:41, 9 December 2008 (EST)

  • It was on the wrong side though, right? Bloodbath 23:35, 17 December 2008 (EST)

What episode is that? Tterrag

Peter's scar... never explained.

Though BTE swore it'd be explained... it never was. So for a while I was thinking they never would. I can't believe I haven't thought of this before, or that no one (to my knowledge) has mentioned it... but Peter can't heal anymore. Sure, the future Peter's were able to heal, but MAYBE they'll bring it up again. Here's to hoping they do.--Riddler 22:49, 28 September 2009 (EDT)
