Quote1.png Alright, people, let’s do this one last time. My name is Peter B. Parker. I was bitten by a radioactive spider. And for the last twenty-two years, I thought I was the one and only Spider-Man. I’m pretty sure you know the rest. You see I saved the city, fell in love, I got married, saved the city some more, maybe too much, my marriage got testy, made some dicey money choices -- don’t invest in a Spider-themed restaurant. Then like fifteen years passed, blah, blah, blah, super boring, I broke my back, a drone flew into my face, I buried Aunt May, my wife and I split up. But I handled it like a champion. ‘Cause you know what? No matter how many times I get hit, I always get back up. Quote2.png

Early Life

Peter was bitten by a Radioactive Spider at a young age, and after losing his Uncle Ben he learned that With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility, becoming the hero known as Spider-Man.[1]

Superhero, Super Disaster

Unlike his Earth-TRN700 counterpart, Peter suffered lots of problems, both in his personal life and in health, making terrible business decisions, breaking his back, crashing into a Drone, losing his Aunt May, and divorcing from his wife due to the fear of being unable to protect her and the child she wanted to have. Some time later, Peter had regressed into eating pizza and developing a prominent gut when he was sucked into another universe. There he learned that his counterpart had died, and came to visit his grave. Unknown to him, someone else with spider-powers was also there, and accidentally knocked Peter unconscious.[1]

Saving the Spider-Verse

After shaking off his captor, Miles Morales, Peter learned that Miles was actually another spider-powered person, and that he was on a mission to stop the Kingpin from opening another inter-dimensional portal, which could destroy the Multiverse. Reluctant to help Miles at first, he soon adopted his role as a begrudging mentor to Miles. During their adventures, Peter and Miles came across four other Spider-powered beings from across the multiverse, and they worked together to finish his counterpart's original goal of shutting down the portal. Peter went through the portal to return to his original reality before it closed. He later showed up on his ex-wife's doorstep, groomed and holding a bouquet of flowers. [1]

After being Spider-Man for over 2 decades, Peter seems to be bored with being Spider-Man and acting like a terrible loser. He lost the will to keep being a hero and hated to be reminded of the "with great power, comes great responsibility" mantra, as shown when Miles attempted to remind him of the lesson, Peter immediately shot him down, saying he was tired of hearing it. Throughout his journey in Miles' reality, being confronted by his past and also having to teach Miles how to be a superhero, it made the flame of being a hero within him spark once again, but what made him willing to stay behind and deactivate the portal should Miles not be ready to do it wasn't because he wanted to save his counterparts, but because he wanted to die. However, Miles inspired him to continue living, knowing it was "a leap of faith." Realizing his past mistakes, he decided to rekindle his relationship with Mary Jane.[1]

Powers

Seemingly those of the Peter Parker of Earth-616.

  • Spider Physiology: Peter was bitten by a radioactive spider and gained the proportionate physical abilities of a spider. He has 22 years of experience.
    • Superhuman Strength: Peter has the inhuman strength of a spider, and can support the weight of a bus without any perceivable difficulty. He was able to punch a criminal so hard that one of his shoes came off. He also kicked the Prowler through a wall of Aunt May's house. He can also hold Miles by one arm.
    • Superhuman Durability: Peter is highly resilient to injury, as he survived Miles' venom strike. No matter how many times he gets hit, he always gets back up, whether it means he gets kicked, slammed, hit by a moving vehicle, crushed by a bigger opponent's grip, or ricocheting off asphalt and nearby buildings until he tumbled into a billboard. He once broke his back falling onto the sidewalk, but he recovered. A drone also once flew into his face while he was swinging on his webs.
    • Superhuman Agility: Peter can gracefully flip and swing on his webs. He also has advanced dexterity, as he easily escaped from being restrained to Miles' heavy bag.
    • Spider-Sense: Peter's Spider-Sense alerts him to danger as well as the presence of those like him. He also has quick reflexes, as he grabbed his mask with his webs before being pulled into Miles' dimension in order to maintain his secret identity.
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: Peter heals extremely quickly, as the wounds he received when he was unconscious were gone when Miles finished interrogating him.
    • Wallcrawling: Peter can crawl and walk up walls.

Abilities

Seemingly those of the Peter Parker of Earth-616.

  • Genius-Level Intellect: Peter was able to memorize Doctor Octopus' 26-digit computer password upon first seeing her enter it on her keyboard, and subtly communicated the rest of the password when Miles forgot it. He is also familiar with physics and quantum theory; he comprehended everything Doctor Octopus said about the rupture in the space-time continuum, and quickly deduced that Miles' invisibility was due to fight-or-flight. Peter's decades of experience allowed him to quickly devise a plan to infiltrate Alchemax, and accurately predict what Kingpin would say to Doctor Octopus, verbatim. He also taught Miles how to unstick from walls and web-swing under "intense, life-threatening pressure."[1]


Equipment

Seemingly those of the Peter Parker of Earth-616.

Transportation

Seemingly those of the Peter Parker of Earth-616.

The "Into the Spider-Verse" suit how It appears in the game.

  • Former Spider-Man actor Tobey Maguire was considered for the role of this version of Peter Parker. However, the inclusion of him or any live-action Spider-Man actors such as Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland was avoided to avoid confusing the audiences.[2]
  • Internally during the production of Into the Spider-Verse, the Peter native to Miles' reality and the foreign Peter were referred to as "RIPeter" and "Burrito Peter," respectively.[3]
  • This suit appearance was added in Marvel's Spider-Man as an unlockable suit for the "Silver Lining" DLC pack and can be unlocked and worn when completing all the main missions, side missions and citywide activities.
  • The "B." in Peter B. Parker stands for the character's usual middle name across his different versions, Benjamin. For Into the Spider-Verse's producer and screenwriter Phil Lord, it also stood for "B grade or B-List or B-picture," to accentuate that Peter B. Parker was a lesser Peter than the one from Miles' universe.[4]
  • Peter finds his Earth-TRN700 counterpart perfect as he was blonde and young.[1]
  • Peter is 38 years old as he became Spider-Man at the age of 16 and has been the hero for 22 years.[1]
  • This version of Peter Parker is implied to be Jewish (unlike most other versions of the character, who are typically Protestant Christian or atheist). This can be shown in the flashback to his marriage to Mary Jane, where he steps his foot on a glass during the ceremony, a Jewish marriage tradition.[1]
