"Put the knife down and let the lady go. Sweet. I just said that thing super heroes say!"
— Alpha

Andy Maguire (of Earth-616), better known as Alpha, became Spider-Man's sidekick to coincide with his 50th anniversary (1962 - 2012) starting in The Amazing Spider-Man (Volume 1) #692 in August of 2012.

As of Alpha: Big Time (Volume 1) #2, Andy has had his powers restored by Otto Octavius.


Andy's personality is radically different to Spider-Man's. He is confident and unpredictable, probably being that he is much younger than Spider-Man.


Early Life

Not much is known about Andrew's early life except that he is a student at Midtown High, the same school Peter Parker attended, but unlike Parker, he was not a good student, who was completely ignored by everyone and his parents did not care of him too much.

  • Energy Projection: Andrew can project a powerful energy blast which he can aim at will.
  • Super Strength: Andrew can increase his strength, being able to lift at least 1 ton.
  • Super Speed: Andrew can move at super speed, approximately at 88 mph.
  • Force Field Generation: Andrew can create a force field around his body to protect himself from impacts.
  • Flight:He can fly using his powers.



Currently, Alpha doesn't have access to his full power and can only use his powers at 10% of their normal strength.


Prior to his battle with Terminus, Andy could use only one ability at a time. During the battle with Terminus, Andy's powers were revealed to have evolved to the point were he could use any number of his powers at any given moment.


  • Alpha broke the normal superhero sidekick tradition of the sidekick being less powerful than his mentor since Alpha was more powerful than Spider-Man.
  • Reed Richards revealed that originally Andy's power would have increased in only a matter of time, and unlike the Hulk, Sentry and the Phoenix Force who are omega-level threats, he would have become the first alpha-level threat if Peter Parker hadn't depowered him when he did.
