-- Peter Parker while visiting his uncle's gravesite src
 

Born in 1952, Ben Parker was the older brother of Richard Parker. At some point in his life, Ben fell in love and married May Reilly. When Richard and his wife Mary where killed in a supposed plane crash, Ben and May took in their orphaned son Peter Parker and raised him as their own. In 2010, Ben was murdered by an armed burglar that Peter had encountered before, but decided not to stop. That guilt caused Peter to use his powers for good and became the masked superhero, Spider-Man.[1]
