Quote1 You've no idea what he means to me. He's my world. All the family I have left. Quote2
-- Mayday Parker src

Benjamin Richard Parker (often called Benjy by his sister and fans) is the younger brother of May Parker/Spider-Girl, and the son of Mary Jane and Peter Parker (Spider-Man).

Benjamin was born after a complicated pregnancy. Because his father's genetic code was altered when he received his powers, there were several anomalies in Mary Jane's pregnancy which had a high risk for both her and the baby. Due to the risk to Mary Jane's health, her obstetrician advised her to consider abortion.[1] However, remembering that she had faced similar risks when pregnant with her daughter May, Mary Jane decided to to proceed with the pregnancy.[citation needed]

Ben was born while his sister was fighting Seth, and to his family's relief, was apparently a perfectly healthy, normal little boy.[2]

His first name Benjamin is in honor of his uncle and granduncle, while his second name Richard is in honor of his grandfather.[citation needed]

Benjamin seemed to display some superhuman abilities,[3] namely balancing a toy block on one finger while spinning his arm at a fast speed. He was also seen dangling the block from his finger on a web-like string.[citation needed]

He was being possessed by a miniature version of the Carnage Symbiote. After his sister freed him from the Symbiote by using the ultrasonic weaponry of the villain Reverb, his father notices that the baby's ears were bleeding, and realized that Ben has lost his hearing, likely because Ben's ears were far too underdeveloped to withstand the sonic waves. The doctors in the hospital were still trying to determine whether Ben's hearing loss is temporary or permanent. May was deeply upset about this and blamed herself. Nevertheless, Ben still seemed to be his usual, happy self. Since discovering her baby brother crawling on the ceiling she feared that due to his exposure to the symbiote, his abilities had somehow been jumpstarted far too early (as hers only came about in her teens) possibly making him more powerful than his father and sister as his powers manifested during childhood.[citation needed]Normie Osborn recently agreed to fund an operation to restore Benjamin's hearing. The operation was a success, restoring most, if not all of Ben's hearing.[citation needed]

It is also known that Peter is the only one who can get him to burp "in the morning" (as Mary Jane says it) by feeding him chili.[citation needed]


After Peter and Mary Jane died protecting May and Benjy from the Totem hunter Daemos, Spider-Girl took Benjy and escaped from this universe with the help of two other Spider-Men who had arrived to save them.[4] He was often under the care of Cosmic Spider-Man while May went on missions.[5] During the attack of the Inheritors on Earth-13 Benjy was revealed to be The Scion, one of the most important Spider-Totems in existence (alongside The Other and The Bride).[6]

When the Spider-Army decided to go on their final attack against the Inheritors after they had also gathered The Other and The Bride and were going to sacrifice them for a ritual, Ben Parker from Earth-3145 rescued Benjy and travelled to his universe, where he kept him safe during the battle, in which the Inheritors were finally defeated.[7]


He has demonstrated having superhuman abilities equal to his father and sister. He balanced a toy block on one finger while his arm at a fast speed. He has been shown with web-like tendrils coming from his fingertips. They can withstand the weight of a small toy building block at the least.

  • Wall-Crawling: Benjy has show the ability to stick to surfaces like Peter and May.
  • Organic Webbing: Unlike Peter or May, Benjy is able to produce his own webbing organically without the aid of web-shooters. He first displayed this ability when he and his mother were thrown off the Brooklyn Bridge by the Goblin God.
  • Spider-Sense


He cannot take care of himself.
