Fridge: Marvel 1602
Fridge Brilliance
  • In the mini-series 1602, Peter Parker's counterpart is given the unwieldy name of Peter Parquagh, despite the fact that the name "Parker" was fairly common. In a follow-up series centering around Spider-Man, it's revealed that "Parquagh" was in fact an alias and that his real name was in fact Parker. Peter Parker was of Scottish descent (Parker is a Scottish name), so Lord Nicholas Fury advised him to change the spelling of his name while they were in the service of Queen Elizabeth, due to the Queen's dislike of the Scots (after that whole Mary Queen of Scots debacle).
