Early Life Edit
Growing Up in New York Edit
Peter Benjamin Parker was born sometime between January 1 and June 23, 2001, in Queens, New York. He was orphaned by his parents early in his childhood and went on to live with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. He currently attends Midtown School of Science and Technology; there, he made friends like Ned Leeds but was also bullied by Flash, one of his classmates. Peter gained spider-like abilities from a bite from a genetically-modified spider. Uncle Ben was killed, forcing Peter and Aunt May to move into an apartment complex.
Six months after getting his powers, Peter Parker lives as a ordinary high school student while fighting crime as the masked local superhero Spider-Man. One of his heroes, Tony Stark, visited his home to recruit him in bringing in fellow Avenger-turned-fugitive Steve Rogers under the premise of a sizable grant offer from the September Foundation. In a private conversation, Tony exposes Peter's secret and Peter explains his powers and his motivation for using them. Peter flies to Germany, accompanied by Tony's friend and former bodyguard Happy Hogan.
Upon arriving at the Leipzig-Halle airport, Stark, his best friend Colonel James Rhodes (aka War Machine), King T'Challa (the Black Panther) and Natasha Romanova (Black Widow) intercepts and confronts Rogers. Wearing a new suit designed by Stark, Peter records the confrontation before capturing Cap and snatching his shield. As the tension between the sides rise, he faced off several rogue Avengers and an ally of Captain America, Scott Lang (aka Ant-Man), who grows into a giant to buy Cap and his best friend Bucky Barnes more time to escape. Spider-Man then mimicks a tactic he saw from The Empire Strikes Back, allowing Iron Man and War Machine punch him down. Peter celebrates his victory but was knocked down by Ant-Man.
Peter returned home examining his new Web-Shooters. Aunt May tends to a bruise over his eye, which he claims was the result of a beatdown from bullies. After May left Peter's room, he discovered a holographic projection that was programmed into his Web-Shooters, revealing the Spider-Signal.
Two months later, Peter still hadn’t heard anything from Stark of the other Avengers. Desperate to prove himself, Peter quit most of his school activities like the school band and the academic decathlon team, so he could focus more on his duties as Spider-Man. He also frequently tried to contact Tony Stark through Happy Hogan's text. To his aunt and friends, Peter lied that he was spending his time on an internship offered by Stark. One day, when coming home from another day as Spider-Man, Peter found his friend Ned Leeds waiting for him in his room. Ned thus discovered Peter’s secret, and became his confident. Using his computer skills, Ned hacked the Spider-Suit and removed the Training Wheels Protocol that Stark had implanted, thus giving Peter full access to all of the suits abilities, including the A.I., which Peter named Karen.
One night, when he was about to show up as Spider-Man on a party thrown by Liz Toomes, he discovered two thugs named Herman Schultz and Jackson Brice selling high-tech weapons to a man named Aaron Davis. Peter tried to capture the two men, but they managed to get away when their boss, Adrian Toomes, interfered and dropped Peter in a lake where he nearly drowned, but he was saved in time by Stark with a remote controlled Iron Man armor. Stark ordered Peter to stay away from the dangerous criminals.
Peter didn’t want to give up so easily and along with Ned investigated a weapon left behind by Brice, removing its power core. Using a tracker he planted on Schultz, Peter discovered the gang had moved to Maryland. Peter thus signed up for the Decathlon again so he could go Washington DC. There, he attempted to stop Toomes from robbing a D.O.D.C truck, but was defeated, trapped inside the truck, and taken to the D.O.D.C. vault. With help of Karen, Peter managed to escape, and in the process learned that the power core he and Ned had taken with them was in fact an unstable Chitauri grenade. Peter made it back to Washington just in time to safe Ned and their friends from the elevator of the Washington Monument when the core exploded and damaged the elevator.
After returning to New York, Peter sought out Aaron Davis and learned from him that Toomes was about to meet with Mac Gargan on board the Staten Island Ferry to discuss a weapons deal. Peter interfered and managed to capture Gargan, but Toomes got away again when a malfunctioning weapon teared the ferry in half. Peter’s own attempt to save the ferry with his webs failed, and it was only due to the timely arrival of Stark that a disaster was averted. Stark was angered at Peters’ recklessness, and so took back Peter's suit.
Disappointed, Peter returned to his high school life and mustered up the courage to ask Liz to the homecoming dance. Upon picking up Liz from her house, Peter learned that she was Adrian Toomes’ daughter. Toomes likewise figured out Peter was Spider-Man, and threatened to kill him if he ever interfered with his plans again. During the dance, Peter realized Toomes was planning to hijack a D.O.D.C. plane transporting weapons from Avengers Tower to the team's new headquarters, and set out to stop him, having to rely on just his old homemade suit and web-shooters again. With help of Ned, Peter first defeated Schultz, who was waiting for him just outside the school. Peter then confiscated Flash Thompsons’ car and had Ned track his phone, which Peter had left in Toomes’ car, to find out where Toomes was. Upon reaching Toomes’ lair, Peter found Toomes waiting for him. Using his exo-suit, Toomes destroyed the building's support beams and left Parker be stuck under the rubble of the ceiling.
Peter was able to escape and intercepted the plane with Toomes on board, after Toomes destroyed the wing on the plane, Peter manage to steer it, only to crash it on the beach near Coney Island. There, Peter and Toomes engaged in a final battle that ended with Toomes’ equipment exploding and Peter saving Toomes from the wreckage. Afterwards, Toomes was arrested, and Peter was offered by Stark to officially join the Avengers. However, Peter declined stating he’d rather be a local hero in Queens for now. Stark accepted his choice, but still gave Peter his suit back. However, when he used the suit again, aunt May shockingly saw him in the costume.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Superhuman Strength: Spider-Man possesses the proportional strength of a spider. Although he is relatively untrained, his strength alone is sufficient enough to catch a 3,000 pound car, moving at 40 miles per hour when it was just inches away from hitting a bus, as well as support the weight of a jet bridge. He is also able to casually overpower ordinary human beings.
- Superhuman Speed: Spider-Man can run and move faster than an ordinary human, making him adept at dodging quickly. He is able to run and move at speeds far greater than the finest human athlete while also successfully evaded attacks from other enhanced individuals.
- Superhuman Stamina: With an improved enhanced stamina, Spider-Man is able to perform physical activities for a longer period without tiring.
- Superhuman Durability: Spider-Man's body is physically resistant and tough against impact force, as he has taken attacks from any opponent without any serious injuries. Additionally, Spider-Man easily endured a collision when flying at full force, a strike from Captain America's Shield, and also has been backhandedly smacked across from an enlarged Ant-Man, as he fall from several stories unharmed.
- Superhuman Agility: Spider-Man is super-humanly agile, capable of swinging around on thin webbing and jumping great distances without any difficulty.
- Superhuman Reflexes: Spider-Man's enhanced reflexes are the result of a sensory input that allows him to physically respond in his environment. He was able to catch his webbing being thrown at him, without even looking.
- Enhanced Senses: Spider-Man's senses are greatly enhanced; he describes them as being "dialed to eleven".
- Enhanced Balance: Spider-Man's sense of balance have been enhanced to point where he has perfect equilibrium, coordination, and dexterity, allowing him to perform acrobatic and gymnastic feats.
- Enhanced Vision: Spider-Man's sense of sight is superhuman to the point in which it forced him to wear dark goggles to prevent it from handicapping him.
- Spider-Sense: Spider-Man's brain intakes and responds to stimuli at an accelerated rate, alerting him to dangers around him as a sixth sense. This awareness functions on a subconscious level, thus alerting Spider-Man of dangers he cannot readily notice at first, allowing him to effectively dodge and counter incoming attacks in combat, including projectiles aimed at him from a blind spot. Peter was able to sense a bench that Winter Soldier had hurled at him while he fought Falcon. During the incident at the Staten Island Ferry, he sensed someone coming his way and, without looking, incapacitated him with a web grenade. Later, he was also able to dodge Vulture's suit at full speed, effectively maneuvering in close quarters at a high rate of speed. However, as his enhanced reflexes directly correspond to his sensory input, he can be rendered vulnerable to attacks if his senses are overloaded, such as during his fight with Vulture. While on a bus during a field trip, Parker was able to sense Ebony Maw's Q-Ship descending on New York City, despite being miles away from the site.
- Wall-Crawling: Spider-Man can adhere to walls, ceilings, and other surfaces and does not use any adhesive gloves to do it.
- Genius-Level Intellect: Peter Parker is academically intelligent, with aptitudes in scientific subjects. He developed a highly advanced chemical compound into a web-like material and constructed his own web-shooters (the sophistication of it even impressed Tony Stark).
- Combatant: Spider-Man's style of combat emphasizes the use of his superhuman strength, speed, agility, and web-shooters. He uses quick and powerful hand-to-hand attacks and agile movements while firing his webs to immobilize his enemies. Despite of his inexperience, Spider-Man was able to hold his own against the more experienced Captain America.
- Master Acrobat: Spider-Man can perform acrobatic moves beyond the physical limits of the finest Olympic athlete. Hence, he was able to accurately shoot a string of webbing at Captain America's Shield then catch it while jumping in the air and land on a vehicle.
- Skilled Marksman:: Spider-Man possesses extremely keen eyesight, and is able to accurately utilize his Web-Shooters to neutralize his targets during his crime-fighting. He was capable of ensnaring Captain America's hands and strip him of his shield, mid-air, executing it all at high speed.
- Multilingual: Peter speaks his native English, as well as some Spanish, studying the language in school with success. He can also speak and understand enough Italian to know a quip Delmar was making about his Aunt May.
- Spider-Man's Suit: Peter Parker originally wore a handmade suit while operating on the streets of New York. Nothing more than red and blue spandex and a pair of goggles, this suit was created with the intention to help Parker to conceal his identity and keep his superhuman senses in check. Peter Parker would later use an upgraded and more refined suit, which was designed by Tony Stark to focus his superhuman senses. This suit also includes moving eyepieces that resemble camera shutters. Peter abandoned his original suit and went to use his new upgraded suit present.
- Utility Belt: The belt is seen on the outside of the more upgraded suit, it contains several more cartridges of web fluid in case Spider-Man runs out of web fluid in his Web-Shooters.
- Web Wings: These spider-like web wings are seen under Spider-Man's arms his upgraded suit that allow him to glide into the air.
- Spider-Drone: The spider emblem on the front of Parker's suit can be detach and act as a tracking device. It has a drone mode that allows it to fly onto a target.
- GPS Tracking System: In his right Web-Shooter, Parker has a GPS tracking system with a holographic display, allowing him to follow his Spider-Tracers.
- Web-Shooters: Spider-Man wears twin devices which he called Web-Shooters on the outside of his suit that allow him to shoot extremely sticky web-like fluid that can enable him to web swing through New York City. After his visit with Tony Stark, his web-shooters were upgraded and had displayed new features.
- Spider-Signal: A emitted red light that appears in Spider-Man's web-shooters, which was programmed by Tony Stark. Spider-Man uses this to alert any criminals of his presence.
- Synthetic Webbing: Created by Peter Parker himself, this web-like organic chemical substance is meant to emulate the silk created by the common spider, while its composition and tensile strength are substantial enough to greatly impress Tony Stark himself. This synthetic spider silk is used by Parker to help swing around New York City, bind and tie up enemies, steal weapons, and make other useful applications. Spider-Man combines this synthetic web with agile movements to dodge enemy attacks and often targets the enemies' arms and legs to break their balance and immobilize them. The chemical compound was so durable that both Captain America and Winter Soldier had trouble breaking it, despite their enhanced strength.
- When Spider-Man got disintegrated by Thanos along with the new Avengers (minus the original Avengers and War Machine) and the Guardians of the Galaxy (minus Rocket Raccoon) in Infinity War, but in it's sequel, they will be resurrected.
- Many fans have pointed out that the symbol on Peter's new Spider-Man suit resembles Todd MacFarlane's drawn Spider-Man logo.

Despite this, his comic book counterpart is not a fan of Star Wars though he has references it.
- Tony Stark, Happy Hogan, Ned Leeds, May Parker, and Adrian Toomes are the only people to know Spider-Man's secret identity.
- The Homemade Costume Peter has constructed to fight crime bares a striking resemblance to Ben Reilly's original Scarlet Spider outfit from the 90's, albeit with an inverted color palette.
- Peter Parker is a fan of the Major League Baseball team the New York Mets, as seen by the baseball cap in his bedroom.
- According to May Parker, Peter loves lab chicken, as opposed to wheat cakes,
- Peter normally gets out of school at 2:45 pm.
- Peter's school locker is #1182.
- Peter is right-handed.
- In Spider-man: Homecoming, Peter uses a tan Jansport Backpack.
- In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man does not rely on his fists as he has not thrown a single punch.
- The design of Parker's bedroom is different from it looks in Homecoming, than it is in Civil War. For example, in Civil War, Peter has a twin bed, while in Homecoming he has bunk beds.
- Peter used to be on his school's marching band, but later quit so that he could have more time to be Spider-Man; this also implies that he knows how to play an instrument.
- Peter is a dumpster diver, this is wear he found the old computer seen on his desk in Captain America: Civil War.
- Peter seems to be against killing his enemies, judging by how he reacted to when Karen activated the suits kill mode and how immediately ordered her to turn it off.
- Peter used to be on his schools robotics lab, but later quit so that he would have more time to be Spider-Man.
- The MCU version of Spider-Man is visibly less competent and capable than the Spider-Man of the comics and most versions. He spends much of the film making mistake after mistake, crashing into things while swinging, fumbling with the functions of his suit and constantly having to try to learn to use his powers.
- A specific case is the Spider-Sense. Both Kevin Feige and Jon Watts insisted they went for a more subtle approach and wanted to focus on Spider-Man's other capabilities, but twice in the film,Peter's identity is exposed because Ganke Lee and Aunt May watch him change out of costume with his back turned. In the original comics, it's specifically mentioned that Peter's spider-sense warns him from anyone approaching him and learning his identity, and that includes family and loved ones. The first time Peter's identity was exposed, happened because the villain, Green Goblin, used a gas to neutralize his spider-sense. Within this film, Peter gets no warning or indicator whatsoever whenever there is an imminent threat to his identity being exposed.
