"With great power, there must also come great responsibility."
— Uncle Ben

Benjamin Parker (of Earth-616), also known as Uncle Ben, was Peter Parker's guardian.

He was killed by a robber that Peter could have stopped. With Uncle Ben dead, Peter learned that with great power, also comes great responsibility.



  • It has been stated that the only person who will not come back to life is Uncle Ben. However, the same was said of Bucky Barnes, who not only came back to life, but later became the new Captain America.


  • A prototype version of Uncle Ben appeared in a story in Strange Tales Vol. 1 #97, published some months before Amazing Fantasy #15.
  • Ben's motto, "with great power, also comes great responsibility" is homaged to by Raven in an episode of Teen Titans Go! where after giving Robin superpowers in the episode, "Super Robin" she says "With great powers, comes even greater responsibilty."
