Quote1.png My name is Peter Parker. I was bitten by a radioactive spider, and for ten years, I've been the one and only Spider-Man. I’m pretty sure you know the rest. I saved a bunch of people, fell in love, saved the city, and then I saved the city again, and again and again, and again. Look, I'm a comic book, I'm a cereal, did a Christmas album. I have an excellent theme song. But after everything, I still love being Spider-Man. I mean, who wouldn't? So no matter how many hits I take, I always find a way to come back. Because the only thing standing between this city and oblivion is me. There's only one Spider-Man. And you're looking at him. Quote2.png

History

Early Life

Spider-Man is born

Peter Parker was born in 1991, and, as he grew up in Queens, developed a close relationship with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. In 2008, he was bitten by a radioactive spider, and gained super-strength, durability, and the power to stick to walls. After losing Uncle Ben to a crime he could have prevented, he developed special wrist-mounted web-shooters and became the superhero known as "Spider-Man".

As Spider-Man, he operated in New York City for ten years, became a celebrity of sorts due to his heroics and the hope he inspired in people. Though his true identity was not known, Spider-Man had merchandise, food, and even a Christmas album in his name and image. Using powerful gadgets and working with his Aunt May, he protected the city from several dangerous villains, including the Kingpin, the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, and the Prowler.

In love with Mary Jane

As Peter Parker, he fell in love with the kind and supportive Mary Jane Watson, and eventually married her. He became cocky and self-absorbed, loved being Spider-Man and inspiring people, but Peter never lost sight of his true goal of being a hero and protecting New York from the threats that might destroy it, making him a brave, noble, and determined superhero.[1]

Fight for the Super-Collider

Fighting the Green Goblin

In 2018, the Kingpin allied himself with Alchemax to create a Super-Collider to open up the multiverse and abduct a version of his deceased wife and son. Spider-Man learned of this and arrived in Kingpin's underground Brooklyn lair to stop the collider, knowing it could destroy New York, but he was stopped by the Green Goblin, and the two engaged in battle. While fighting the Goblin, Peter noticed Miles Morales, a teenager bystander who had wandered into Kingpin's lair from the subway, and took him to safety. Once they were both safe, Peter's spider-sense told him that he had been bitten by a similar spider to Peter's, and was developing similar powers. Peter offered to teach Miles to be a superhero before he was attacked by the Prowler and held captive by the Goblin.

Soon after, the Kingpin arrived and the Super-Collider was activated, blasting an energy beam at a box with Kingpin's wife and son's DNA inside. Spider-Man and the Goblin continued to battle, resulting in the Goblin shoving Peter into the energy, causing it to pull five other similarly powered individuals from across the multiverse into Peter's native dimension. This overloaded the collider and caused it to explode, killing the Goblin and mortally wounding Spider-Man.

Passing on the mission

Miles approached the dying Peter, who handed him the USB stick he had planned to use to shut down the collider, and made him promise to do it for him. Miles ran and hid, and the Kingpin and the Prowler approached Peter. When Peter told Kingpin the stakes of his quest, and that he couldn't bring back his family, Kingpin smashed Spider-Man with his fists, killing him instantly.[1]

Legacy

Spider-Man's body was found and unmasked, believed to have been killed by an earthquake (really the collider's explosion). The news of his death and true identity broke to the city later that night, resulting in a movement of respect and heroism across the city, including a moving eulogy at a public funeral by Mary Jane.

Miles visits Peter's gravestone

Peter's words and heroism also inspired Miles to take up the mantle of Spider-Man and become his successor, allowing him and the five extra-dimensional spider heroes to shut down the collider and defeat Kingpin, saving the city, ensuring Peter Parker gone, but not forgotten.[1]

Personality

Peter was at his prime of being Spider-Man. He is optimistic, quippy and kind-hearted. He immediately took Morales under his wing moments after discovering he had spider-powers, sacrificed himself in an attempt to stop Kingpin, and spent his last moments teaching Miles the fundamentals of being Spider-Man to prepare him.[1]
