Small hairs on his hands and feet that allow him to adhere to walls and most surfaces.
"You can live every day of your life trying to think of something more profound or more on the nose... but for us, for people like us, who suddenly find themselves looking out at a crazy world and not knowing what the hell we're supposed to be doing in it... I can tell you that just remembering that with great power comes great responsibility... can completely define you."
— Peter Parker
Peter Benjamin Parker (of Earth-616), also known by his superhero alter-ego Spider-Man, is a fictional comic book character who has appeared in all forms of Spider-Man media, and many comic book series published by Marvel Comics.
Peter Parker was orphaned at the age of six when hisparents were killed in an airplane crash overseas. He went to live with his uncle and aunt, Ben and May Parker, in Forest Hills, New York. Peter was extremely smart and worked his way to become an honors student at Midtown High School. However, Peter's shyness and scholastic interest often made him a social outcast, being overshadowed by the likes of high school bully, Flash Thompson, among other popular kids.
While attending a public exhibition field trip demonstrating the safe handling of nuclear laboratory waste materials, sponsored by the General Techtronics Corporation, Peter was bitten by a radioactive spider that had been irradiated by a particle accelerator used in the demonstration. Making his way home afterwards, Peter discovered he had somehow gained incredible strength, agility, and the ability to cling to walls; spider-like traits that he immediately associated with the spider bite (picture below).
After seeing an ad offering a cash prize to anyone who could last three minutes in the ring with a professional wrestler, Peter decided this would be the perfect way to test his powers. Wearing a mask to avoid potential embarrassment, Peter easily defeated his opponent. A television producer observed his performance and convinced him to go on television with his 'act.' After designing a red and blue costume and some wrist-mounted web-spinners, Peter appeared on the show calling himself Spider-Man and became an immediate sensation.
Following his first television appearance, Peter purposely neglected to stop an escaping thief, claiming that it was not his responsibility to do so. Peter forgot the incident as his fame rose, but one night he returned home to discover that his Uncle Ben had been murdered while trying to stop a burglar.
Learning the police had the burglar responsible holed up in a warehouse, Peter donned in his Spider-Man costume and went to avenge his uncle. After cornering the criminal in the warehouse, Peter unmasked the robber, only to find it was the same man who he let escape earlier. After knocking the criminal out and lowering him to policeman via webline, Peter returned home and thought about how he could've stopped the man when he had the opportunity.
Filled with remorse, he realized that with great power, there must also come great responsibility. Peter eventually found himself consumed by the concept of adventure and heroism. That, along with the lesson in responsibility that was recently drilled into his head, inspired him to take that fateful step into the shoes of heroism, as the Amazing Spider-Man, New York's newest street level hero.
With the choice to become a hero, Peter thought it was a good idea to join the Fantastic Four because he thought they were paid for their good deeds.
As Spider-Man, Peter gave up a good portion of his own personal life. He had less time to spend with his family and friends, and as a result, less time was devoted to his school work. During this time, Peter's grades began to suffer, as did his relationships with others.
However, the one person who found him to be a "swell fellow" was Betty Brant of the Daily Bugle. Peter met her on one of his first visits to the Bugle, where he was introduced to her boss and Spider-Man's number one critic, J. Jonah Jameson.
Her boss was determined to make Spider-Man public enemy #1, unaware of the fact that Spider-Man and Peter Parker were one and the same. Betty and Peter developed an almost instant connection with one another, and soon started a relationship with one another that did not last long.
One day after being beaten many times in a row by Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus would bring together six of them in a new supervillian group called the "Sinister Six" and kidnap Aunt May and Betty Brant to end Spider-Man's life once and all, but didn't work since Spider-Man picked them off one by one.
Along Peter's adventures, Spencer Smythe would come to help J. Jonah Jameson in trying to defeat Spider-Man by building a "Spider-Slayer" robot with Jonah's face on the robot.
Spider-Man would also meet Daredevil and team-up with the Fantastic Four's Human Torch from time to time to fight crime.
At ESU, Peter met new classmates, Harry Osborn and Gwen Stacy. Even though he got off to a bad start with Harry, The two eventually warmed up to each other. Peter showed an interest in Gwen and started to date her. Peter also made amends with his ex-school bully, Flash Thompson who was drafted to the army, but came back for visits every now and gain.
Meanwhile, the Green Goblin starts to come up with a plan to discover Spider-Man's secret identity and reveal it to the entire world after upgrading his flying broomstick to a glider. The Green Goblin devised a plan to have some goons release a gas that would weaken Spider-Man's spider-sense that would allow the Green Goblin to follow Spider-Man find out who he was.
After a successful plan via a rooftop battle, Goblin stalked Spider-Man to an alleyway and discovers that Peter Parker and Spider-Man were the same person, and was surprised that a mere "kid" was the one taking him down all the time.
Green Goblin then kidnaps Peter after a battle where Peter lost. After tieing Peter up in his Spider-Man costume, Norman Osborn unmasked himself as the Green Goblin and Harry's father all along. After Peter got loose during Norman's speech, a battle started between the two of them where Norman ended up suffering trauma to his head and forgot he was the Green Goblin and Spider-Man's secret identity.
After Norman's unmasking, Spider-Man fought new foes such as the the Rhino (a man named Aleksei Sytsevich in a Rhino like suit) who kidnapped John Jameson, with Spider-Man coming to save the day. Also, a man named Herman Schultz who dubbed himself as the “Shocker” used shock wave gauntlets to commit crimes. Both became crime committers that Spider-Man defeated regularly.
Peter eventually started wondering if he may be better off not being a normal civilian and leaving behind his Spider-Man costume and crime fighting, since no one seemed to appreciate the good deeds Spider-Man did. After much thinking, a man named Wilson Fisk known as the Kingpin, abducted J. J. Jameson. Peter decided it was his responsibility to be a hero for any and everyone, no matter what people said about Spider-Man and saved J. Jonah Jameson.
A mystic object called the Tablet of Life and Time, that was in Peter's college at the time, was taken by Kingpin. After being in the possession of many people, the Tablet got to the Maggia boss, Silvermane, who forced Curt Connors to translate the tablet’s ancient writings. Connors was also forced to create a powerful youth serum from it for Silvermane. After Silvermane drank the serum, it appeared to work and he became a young man again. However, the serum made Silvermane's body to degenerate pass a human’s baby stage. After this, Connors turned into the Lizard again and escaped. Spider-Man then teamed up with the Human Torch to take him down.
Spider-Man also meets the Prowler and a new costumed Black Widow, people who he would meet and clash with regularly in the future.
Another version of the Spider-Slayer would come about in the form of a "Mark II" with J. Jonah's face on the robot that Spider-Man once again defeated.
Using his mental sync with his tentacles, Doc Ock controlled his tenticles from prison to free him. They freed him and he started to hijack a plane. Spider-Man prevented Doc Ock from hijacking the plane and destroying the city's power plant. Spider-Man thought he stopped Doc Ock, only to be caught by surprise the very next day. Spider-Man and Doc Ock took their fight to a rooftop where the intense battle caused the building to fall apart. Some of the falling debris from the battle was closing in on a child, and at the last second, George Stacy saved the child, at the cost of his own life.
After defeating Doc Ock, Spider-Man ran over to George to see if he was okay. George then admitted that he knew Spider-Man and Peter Parker were the same person (much to the surprise of Peter) then died in Spider-Man's arms.
Afterwards, Peter faced many superheroes, thinking he was one who killed George Stacy. Such as the X-Men's Bobby Drake (Iceman) and the Prowler (Hobie Brown). After proving himself to them, he went to London to try to prevent Gwen from leaving New York because of hers father's death.
With his life as Spider-Man only causing him trouble, Peter starts to make a formula that will take away his Spider-Powers. After going to sleep, then waking up, Peter saw that he had an extra four arms on his sides. Stressed for help, Spider-Man went to Curt Connors for help to make a cure for his extra four arms, while trying to help Connors to become the Lizard again. Spider-Man encountered a more villains such as a man called Michael Morbius, a vampire who wanted to kill Spider-Man, the Beetle and more Spider-Slayers.
Peter eventually returned to normal, shortly after helping the Hulk fight Doc Ock and Hammerhead in Canada.
All seemed normal for both Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, as well as Peter's life as Spider-Man doing his job as usual. Seeing that none of his friends were paying attention to him, Harry fell to LSD. However, Norman Osborn's alter-ego as Green Goblin resurfaced, and he suited up as the Green Goblin to kidnap Gwen Stacy. Spider-Man found them at the top of the Brooklyn Bridge, where the Goblin was holding Gwen. After a few words, Goblin dropped Gwen off the bridge to kill her.
Naturally, Spider-Man dived after her and after seeing his speed could not match hers, he spun a web to catch her by her leg. Due to the fast stop, Gwen's neck snapped and she died right as she was stopped. Goblin then told Spider-Man that it was impossible for him get Gwen, since she was falling to fast and he knew the web would kill her. Holding her dead body, Spider-Man was enraged and took after Goblin. In an ally, Spider-Man was so angry he started to beat Goblin, almost to near death with Goblin being surprised that Spider-Man snapped and unleashed his full strength upon him.
Up against a wall, Goblin activated his glider to impale Spider-Man. However, he did not account for Spider-Man's Spider-Sense and he jumped out of the way and the Goblin impaled himself and died. With Goblin dead, Peter reflected on how he could have killed Goblin since he was using his full strength. Afterwards, Mary Jane consoled Peter after the death of Gwen.
Having fingers pointed at him for the death of both Stacys, Spider-Man was confronted by Luke Cage and the Punisher, only to prove himself and befriend them both. Soon after, Harry Osborn (Norman Osborn's son) took the mantle of the Green Goblin and kidnapped Flash Thompson, Mary Jane and Aunt May. Spider-Man found Harry at his father's old home and had him arrested and freed his friends.
After the death of Gwen Stacy, Peter was in a state of depression that almost led him to quit being Spider-Man altogether as he regularly blamed himself for Gwen's death.
After many months of grieving, Gwen Stacy pops up, seemingly alive with no real explanation. Peter as Spider-Man investigated this sudden return of Gwen, and would come to find out that her return was the work of a new villain called the "Jackal" who was actually Miles Warren, one of Peter and Gwen's biochemist professor at Empire State University where they both studied.
It was revealed that Miles had fallen in love with the young Gwen Stacy when she was alive. But when Gwen died, Miles was driven into insanity and sought to clone her, to bring her back to life, while blaming Spider-Man for her death.
After many failed attempts, Miles made perfect clones of Gwen Stacy and even Spider-Man. With this new clone of Spider-Man made, Miles tells the clone that he is the original Peter Parker and kidnaps the original Peter Parker to do battle with Miles' clone who thought he was the original Peter Parker.
After much battle, the two Spider-Men decide to team-up against Miles, while he was planting a bomb nearby. After attempts to prevent Jackal from escaping, the bomb goes off, seemingly killing one of the Spider-Men and Jackal.
Peter drops the body of the dead Spider-Man in an incinerator and starts to perform a genetics test on himself to see if he is the first and original Peter Parker. However, nervous from the entire experience and what the result will be, Peter does not look at the test results and claims that he is the real Peter Parker because he remembers having feelings for Mary Jane before the clone appeared, and comes to a conclusion that he is the first and original Peter Parker, and continues his role as Spider-Man.
The clone of Gwen Stacy hopes to move on with her life by leaving Empire State University to start over somewhere new.
A "friend" from outer space
While reading a newspaper about certain heroes going missing, Spider-Man was zapped out of New York and into Battleworld, created by the Beyonder.
Spider-Man fights alongside the heroes, but during a battle of heroes vs. villains, Spider-Man's costume is ripped and damaged. The heroes point out the base where Spider-Man can get a new costume of some kind and he head over. Spider-Man then witnesses a black floating ball that morphs around himself, getting rid of the rips in his costume, but making it completely different and entirely black with a giant white spider on the chest and eye pieces.
Spider-Man takes the costume and continues to fight alongside the heroes to stop Galatcus from devouring the planet.
After the first Secret Wars is over, most are sent back to where they came from including Spider-Man, who popped up back in New York. Every noticed Spider-Man's new costume and he decided to keep it. However, he started to notice some new features about the costume that his old one didn't have. This new black costume had it's own stronger and organic webbing and it was able to turn into regular clothing on command.
During his time with the black suit, Spider-Man caught a murderer the "Sin-Eater" whom Edward Brock was writing about in the paper. After publishing the man's identity in the paper and the supposed dialogue he had with him, but after Spider-Man discovered the real Sin-Eater and brought him to justice, it was revealed that Eddie was making the entire thing up and was blackballed from all media outlets. This made Eddie angry and made him grow a deep hate for Spider-Man for ruining his life.
Meanwhile, Spider-Man had questions about his new suit, since it made him web Black Cat back into his arms and the suit was taking out Spider-Man at night while he was asleep to fight crime. Unaware of the latter but still tired, Spider-Man web swung to the Baxter Building to enlist the help of Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four who was eager to study the costume.
After some testing, it was found out that the black suit that Peter was wearing actually an alive symbiote and was trying to permently bond with Peter, the host. Peter tried to get the suit off, but the symbiote was only getting tighter around him.
Mr. Fantastic finally decided to blast it off Peter using a Sonic Blaster he had and keep the symbiote for study. Peter swung back home in a spare Fantastic Four costume, happy that the symbiote was off him.
Meanwhile later that night, the symbiote snuck out of Reed Richards' lab and got itself back onto Peter by changing transforming into Peter's classic red and blue classic costume. Peter put it on, and the symbiote made itself apparent once more. Worried, Peter gambled that the Our Lady of Saints Church bells would produce a sound intense enough to get the symbiote off him once again.
However, Peter passed out before the symbiote did. Feeling sorry for Peter and confused, it willingly left Peter, weak and alone.
The Rise of Venom
The Symbiote, weak and dying, slithered down into the church where Eddie Brock was, and bonded with him. Eddie dubbed himself "Venom" and waited and watched Peter as Spider-Man to strike at the right time.
Peter returned to his red and blue classic, but Black Cat adore his former black symbiote so she made him a cloth version that Peter could wear and get off easy.
After capturing three muggers assaulting Ernie Popchik (an elderly tenant of his Aunt May's), as Spider-Man, Peter gets the unfortunate news from Detective Stan Carter that police officer Jean DeWolff has been murdered in her sleep by a double barrel shotgun and her police badge was taken.
Some time later in court, the three muggers are being defended by Matthew Murdock (Daredevil) and he successfully has them released on bail. Peter, expresses his anger at Matt for working with the gulity who senses that Peter is Spider-Man from his signature heartbeat.
After a quick chat that has Matt agreeing with Peter, a man with a shotgun breaks into the courtroom revealing himself to be the "Sin-Eater". Matt not wanting to reveal his secret identity, freezes in place as the Sin-Eater kills the pleading judge and then quickly escapes through the window.
Peter hearing the gunshot, runs away to change into his Spider-Man costume.
Outside the courthouse, Peter has caught up with the Sin-Eater who open fires on Peter. Peter dodges the shots, but in the process an innocent civillan gets hurt. Distracted that he let someone get hurt, the Sin-Eater gets the upper hand on Peter. During the fight Peter notices a police badge on the Sin-Eater's belt, the same one that belonged to DeWolff. When accused of killing Jean, the Sin-Eater admits to killing her. Spider-Man then tends to a fallen Aunt May, as the Sin-Eater gets away since Peter's web-shooters' were damaged during the fight.
Some time later at Daily Bugle, the Sin-Eater arrives looking for J. Jonah Jameson and before he could kill Joe Robertson, Peter Parker, who was at the Daily Bugle, knocks Sin-Eater out using an old typewriter. The Sin-Eater is unmasked and taken by the police. During the interrogation which is being attended by Daredevil and Spider-Man, the Sin-Eater is identified as Emile Gregg who tells his interrogators that he was hearing voices, which prompted him to commit the murders.
However, Daredevil hears Emile's heartbeat pattern and doesn't reconize it from an eariler encounter with the Sin-Eater and convices Spider-Man to search Emile's apartment. They arrive there to see that the apartment next to Emile's has been recently broken into. Some unopened mail reveals the apartment is Stan Carter's, and Daredevil opens a closet to find guns, Sin-Eater costumes, and a tape recorder with Stan's voice.
Daredevil and Spider-Man come to the final conclusion that Stan Carter is the real Sin-Eater that murdered Jean and Emile Gregg, who was clearly had a unstable mind, thought Stan's reading of his own war journal were voices in his head, leading him to break into Stan's apartment and become a copycat killer.
The two then recall that Sin-Eater intended to kill J. Jonah Jameson before and is most likely going to Jonah's penthouse where Betty Brant and Marla Jameson are while Jonah is attending a conference in Florida.
As planned, the Sin-Eater goes to Jonah's penthouse and when he was about to kill Betty, Spider-Man crashes through the window just in time and violently beats Sin-Eater while Betty watches in horror.
Daredevil appears try to prevent an enraged Spider-Man from killing the already unconscious Sin-Eater. Still enraged, Spider-Man punches Daredevil out of the apartment.
Daredevil comes back and starts taunting Spider-Man who is easily provoked in his current mindset and goes to fight Daredevil, but manages to defeat Spider-Man who's fighting abilities are not as good, since he is driven by his rage. Daredevil defeats Spider-Man by beating him unconscious with his billy club weapon.
Stan Carter is finally taken into custody and it is revealed by agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. that he was driven insane by PCP drugs he took after his partner was killed, which also gave him superhuman reflexes and skills.
Much later, it is soon revealed to the public that Stan Carter might be found not gulity by insanity, an angry mob, which included Jean's father, were willing to kill Stan themselves for his crimes. As Stan was being taken to Riker's Island by police with riot gear, he and the police was attacked by the mob.
Daredevil jumped in to save Stan but quickly found himself overwhelmed by the mob. Daredevil called out for help from Spider-Man, but he had who turned his back because he thought Stan deserved what was coming to him.
In a desperate attempt to save himself and Carter, Daredevil cried out Spider-Man's real name causing Peter to quickly swoop in and save both Daredevil and Carter from the mob.
Later on a rooftop, both Spider-Man and Daredevil reveal each other's secret identities to each other and Matt even offered his legal services to Peter if he required it in the future.
After Spider-Man defeats Electro, he finds Mary Jane moving in. He also ponders how he'll continue to provide for him and Mary Jane in the near future.

The next day, Peter's best man, Flash Thompson, and his best friend, Harry Osborn, take Peter out for a bachelor party.
Later at City Hall, all of the guests are present, but both Peter and Mary Jane are absent. They both arrive late and are married by Mary Jane's uncle, Spenser Watson.
Mary Jane surpises Peter with the tickets to Paris with which her ex-boyfriend tried to tempt her with. Happy she turned him down, Peter accepts and they both go off on their honeymoon to France, starting their new life together as Mr. and Mrs. Parker.
After burying Spider-Man, Kraven dons a mock black Spider-Man costume, calling himself "The Spider-Man" and plans to become a "better" Spider-Man than Peter. Kraven even drinks from a "sacred essence" of herbs and roots to become more like Spider-Man.
Kraven also rescues Mary Jane from muggers, but after seeing Kraven brutally beat on the muggers, she quickly puts together that this "Spider-Man" isn't Peter Parker.
The police soon catch on to Kraven's brutal beatings of criminals as Spider-Man and the police try to stop "Spider-Man". The police try, but can't catch Kraven, saying that he has hospitalized 15 men and possibly killed one.
The Spider then corners criminal Vermin in the sewer, overpowers him and brings him to the surface.
Meanwhile at Spider-Man's grave, Peter's hand emerges from the ground.
As Kraven claims victory over Vermin, the real Spider-Man emerges from the grave he was put in, realizing that he was only heavily drugged by Kraven.
After grabbing a newspaper that was on the ground, Peter sees the date and sees that he has been in the grave for two weeks and that Kraven has been Spider-Man while Peter was gone. After checking on Mary Jane, Peter sets out to find Kraven.
Upset that Peter was dead for two weeks because of Kraven's drug, he attacked Kraven. Smiling, Kraven believed he had won over Spider-Man by saying that "killing" and impersonating Spider-Man, proved his superiority over Peter.
Donning his Spider costume, Kraven releases Vermin to attack Spider-Man. At first, Spider-Man fights Vermin, but then backs off, refusing to play Kraven's game. After Vermin overwhelms Spider-Man, Kraven jumps in help Spider-Man by throwing seperating the two, yet releases Vermin, promising to never hunt again.
Kraven helps Spider-Man up, urging him to go after Vermin. Spider-Man goes after Vermin, while Kraven stays behind.
Feeling complete, Kraven commits suicide by shooting himself with a hunting rifle.
The Rise of Venom
As Spider-Man, Peter fought crime as he usually does but twice he was almost killed. Waiting for the train, Peter was pushed into the train tracks and while on a building, Peter's foot was grabbed, almost making him fall to his death if he didn't act quick enough. Both times, something got past his Spider-Sense and Peter was unknown who was behind this.
Posing as Peter, Venom finally made a move on Peter by kidnapping Peter's wife, Mary Jane. He awaited the fight with Spider-Man as Eddie wanted to kill him for ruining his life. Although Venom’s twisted sense of morality did not allow him to physically harm Mary Jane, Spider-Man immediately realized the nature of this threat and he got the Sonic Blaster from Reed Richards to use it against Eddie.
Meeting at the same church where Peter tried to get the symbiote off him, Peter uses the Sonic Blaster on Eddie, only to find out that the symbiote had a stronger bond than ever with Eddie and the Sonic Blaster barely fazed him.
During the battle between the two, Spider-Man escaped webbing that Venom trapped him in and decided to make Eddie use up all his webbing, which the symbiote itself was getting the webbing from, with Venom tired from expelling so much webbing, Spider-Man used this and defeated Venom.
Spider-Man then brought Venom to the Fantastic Four who imprisoned him in a sonic containment cell, which kept the symbiote at bay from Eddie and kept him sleep for a while. The Fantastic Four then shipped Venom to the government super-prison in the Colorado Rockies called the Vault.
A young guard named Hugh Taylor who had just been assigned to the Vault was fooled into thinking that Venom was a fallen colleague and released the gate mechanism, which Eddie used to his advantage to rebond with the symbiote, kill the guard and escape back to New York City, where he confronted Spider-Man for another fight.
This time, Spider-Man used reverse psychology towards Venom, by taunting the alien symbiote to return to him. The alien, wanting to be with Spider-Man again, attempted to leave Eddie and to re-bond with Spider-Man. However, the trauma of trying to detach itself from Brock’s nervous system was too much to bear for the symbiote.
The alien costume felt unconscious, as did Eddie, and both were returned to the Vault.
After receiving a letter from Captain Britain at the Daily Bugle asking for Spider-Man's assistance, Peter goes out to ally and help the Excalibur team.
After seeing Rachel Summers down, the Phoenix Force saw a new host in Spider-Man, as they fuse to become what he called, "Spider-Phoenix" for a short while to attempt to save Captain Britain from what he thought was D'Spayre and Nightmare attacking.
With his nearly limitless power, Spider-Phoenix killed Nightmare and D'Spayre easily, but they turned out to be robots. The Phoenix Force quickly left Peter, as he becomes normal again.
During Harry Osborn's funeral, Peter promises Mary Jane that he'll take a break from being Spider-Man for some time.
Meanwhile, serial killer Cletus Kasady is being transferred to the newly opened Ravencroft Institute. Unknown to anyone, however, it's revealed that the Carnage symbiote had permently fused with Kasady's blood. Kasady releases it by cutting his wrists with his handcuffs, creating a perfect copy and turns into Carnage once again.
After killing many guards, Carnage frees female supervillian, Shriek, who has the ability to manipulate sound at will. Both set out to find and kill Venom and Spider-Man. Along the way, they add Spider-Man's Doppleganger as their "pet", along with Demogoblin, and Carrion.
Once Peter hears that Carnage has broken out of jail, he breaks his promise to Mary Jane and goes on a hunt for Carnage. As Spider-Man, Peter finds Carnage's team but is violently beaten and overpowered by Doppelganger and Shriek. Just before the finishing blow, Cloak (along with Dagger) come to Spider-Man's aid by teleporting him to somewhere safe to tend to his wounds.
Spider-Man has now formed his own team consisting of himself, Venom, Cloak, Dagger and Black Cat. They attack the villains but they are again defeated.
After the defeat they add Captain America, Michael Morbis, Deathlok, Iron Fist, Nightwatch and Firestar to the team.
All the heroes band together in a final fight against Carnage's team at the Statue of Liberty where Venom is being held. Venom escapes and joins Spider-Man in the final battle.
In a last ditch effort, Iron Fist and Dagger channel their energy through a device Deathlok has to create an energy that will bring love and hope into all of Carnage's team, to weaken them for futher attack by Spider-Man's team. All the villains are defeated, except for Carnage who escapes.
Soon after Carnage fakes his death, Carnage ambushes Venom alone. Venom tackles Carnage into an electric generator and it explodes, defeating Carnage. Carnage is then placed in a stasis chamber while the rest of his team are taken to jail while Venom makes his escape.

All of Hawkeye's explosive arrows are then lit up by a Kree lazer and after seeing this, he grabs a flying Kree and crashes it into a ship, destorying it and killing himself in the process.
Doctor Strange then arrives, telling the Avengers that the reason why Tony was drunk, the Kree attacked and many other horrible things happened out of nowhere is because the Scarlet Witch is slowly growing more insane, and as she grows more insane, she starts to warp reality to her favor, since she driven by the lost of her children years ago, that she created herself.
She tries to hides these memories, but it just makes her grow even more crazy enough to think that the Avengers took her children from her. Captain America, Doctor Strange and others go after Wanda, with Strange placing her in a trance, with Magento taking her away.

After a final battle in Manhattan, Captain America sees the chaos and destruction that is brought to the city as a result of the superheroes fighting. Captain America tells his side to stand down, as he unmasks to allow the police to arrest him and bring him to trial.
However, as Steve Rogers was brought to court, he is shot twice and dies from loss of blood. Just about every Marvel superhero, X-Men, Avenger and Fantastic Four are present at Captain America's funeral to pay respects, including Peter as Spider-Man to bid their farewell to the once great leader of the Avengers.
After the Civil War, an old enemy resurfaced, Kingpin, still in prison hired a professional sniper to kill Peter Parker and his loved. With his spider-sense, Peter sensed the sniper, but not quickly enough as he got one shot off and hit Peter's Aunt May Parker.
While Mary Jane attempts to call 911, Peter believes that she'll die before they get there so he swings out as Peter Parker and delivers Aunt May to a hospital.
After Peter tells Mary Jane to book Aunt May in her maiden name and sign every piece of paper she needs to, he swings off in an attempt to find the person that shot Aunt May.
Jumping back to Mary Jane, the doctor tells her that Aunt May is in a coma. He goes on to say that the machines are doing all they can, but due to Aunt May's age, her body can not pick up the slack to heal properly and they she will eventually die.
Meanwhile in the rain, Peter goes to a very high part of a building to receive the cloth version of the symbiote costume Black Cat made him long ago, and continues by saying that once he finds the person that shot Aunt May, he will kill them.
After putting on the costume, Peter is on the phone with Mary Jane who tells him that it is all up to Aunt May to make the recovery. Peter swings off in the black costume ready to find the person who shot Aunt May.
Peter finds a man who doesn't give him information, so he throws the man out the window, only to catch him at the last second by his toe with webbing. Peter then asks again, and receives three names, only one matters to Peter, "Jake Martino".
Peter then webs up two police men's path in order to use their car to use a computer inside to find more details on Jake Martino.
Peter finds an address with an older man who says that Jake does live here and pays his rent on time and in cash, but only recently left with bags for the train station.
At the train station, Peter finds Jake as he is running. As the caught man is about to say something, he is shot by someone else who gets away right before Peter tags him with a spider-tracer.
Peter rides follows him to the hospital where he dies. Peter then catches up to the man he stuck the spider-tracer on and webs him mouth up, taking the phone from him. Before the man attempts to hang up, Peter realizes the voice is Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin. Fisk asks Spider-Man what can he do for him with Peter telling that he can die.
In regular clothing, Peter returns to the hospital to see that Aunt May still has not made any progress. Mary Jane also tells him that they keep paying with cash to keep Aunt May in a private room and extra care from the hospital.
Peter tells her that he will get more money, but Mary Jane cuts him off saying that eventually they will draw attention to Aunt May, which will draw attention to Peter and Mary Jane and they will all eventually be in more danger.
Peter transfers some of his blood and then leaves Mary Jane for the prison Wilson Fisk is in. Both get dressed with Fisk in his classic white threads with Peter as Spider-Man in his black costume. Both arrive in the middle of the prison floor with Peter saying that now it is between him and Spider-Man and it all ends now.
As Spider-Man, Peter arrives in the prison as Fisk calls Peter a "chump" for believing in the greater good and taunts Peter about nearly killing Aunt May. Spider-Man doesn't say anything except for hitting Fisk a few times. Spider-Man then takes off his mask and upper part of the suit saying that Spider-Man isn't here to kill Wilson Fisk, but Peter Parker is.
Peter begins beating Fisk, stating that Fisk never had any real power. Fisk enraged, attacks Peter with Peter dodging Fisk's attacks with ease. After counting to three, he throws Fisk against a wall telling him that he did better than kill him, he beat him and everyone in the prison saw so and will tell their friends. Peter also makes it clear that if Aunt May does die, he will come back for him and kill him, telling the prisoners that if they go after his family, they will experience the same beating that Fisk got.
Mary Jane talks with Peter tell him that they might have to move Aunt May to another hospital that isn't eating up all their money as fast. Peter doesn't want to do this, so Mary Jane tells Peter that he will have to wait.
Peter chats with Aunt May all night, hoping she'll wake up and talk to him.
The next day, Peter steals a complete blood test folder on Aunt May which tells Peter that his stronger, radioactive blood didn't help Aunt May in any way. Meanwhile, the hospital reverend arrives, and asks Mary Jane if they have any plans for a funeral.
Later in the day, a second printed report is given to a police officer named Lieutenant Detective Robert Delint by the head nurse. They have a little talk about the missing first report that Peter stole, the new radiation in May's blood, and Mary Jane paying in cash only.
Delint goes up to May's room and Peter, sensing him with his spider-sense, hides out of sight. Mary Jane greets Delint and before he can get any details, all the lights go out, except for the equipment keeping the hospitalized people alive. Peter appears in the dark and knocks Delint out with one punch.
With Delint suspicious, Peter and Mary Jane realize that they have to transfer Aunt May as soon as possible. Peter then finds himself breaking nine different laws in order to transfer his aunt, which has him thinking how he can really go to jail because his fingerprints are everywhere.
Peter is thinking to himself how everything is his fault, starting with the reveal of his identity at the start of the superhero Civil War, leading up to now.
He and Mary Jane are looking at Aunt May, when a doctor comes in telling Peter Morgen (Peter's fake name) that his aunt, May Morgen has barely shown any brain activity. After the doctor starts asking questions, Peter starts lashing out at the doctor, both angry at him for asking and himself.
Peter leaves, but the doctor catches up to him and shows him a newspaper of Peter unmasking, saying that Spider-Man saved his uncle two years ago and he knows that Peter is Spider-Man and that if he ever had a chance to return the favor, he would.
He says that he can stall, but if the hospital needs something, he can't refuse. Peter says he won't have to stall for long and swings off into New York City, without a mask.
Meanwhile at Tony Stark's tower, Tony suits up to find Peter breaking in, and charges him out a high window and into the streets.
On the street, Iron Man is webbed up as Peter is talking him, saying that it is his fault for Aunt May's fate, since he told Peter to show his secret identity to the world, putting Aunt May and Mary Jane in danger. After Iron Man is charged back up, he escapes, telling Peter he can't help him, because by the state, he is defined as an outlaw and that the next time they run into his other, he will arrest him.
Later at the hospital, Peter returns empty handed with Jarvis showing up shortly after him. Jarvis lies and says that May is his cousin and covers the bill with two million dollars. The doctor then tells Peter that is nothing humanly possible to bring Aunt May back to where she was. Peter doesn't accept that and suits up in his Spider-Man costume in pursue of help., with no avail.
Deal with the devil
On his way to the hospital, Peter follows an odd red headed girl that runs off. A woman in red then transforms into the demon Mephisto, telling Peter that he can save his Aunt May. Saying that he does not want Peter's soul, but his marriage to Mary Jane.
Peter and Mary Jane are given until midnight that very to decide. After many hours, Peter and Mary Jane decide that they agree to the terms, only if Peter's identity is wiped from everyone's mind, unless Peter unmasks right in front of them. Mary Jane also whispers to Mephisto another, unspecified offer in return for Mephisto, telling him to put Peter's life back exactly how it was and give him a chance at happiness.
He agrees, but not before telling the couple that the little red headed girl that Peter follows was actually their future daughter, but will now never exist because of their choice.
Mephisto then changes time so that they were never married.
Back in the new timeline, Peter wakes in living in Aunt May's house again with a party being thrown for Harry Osborn who introduces Lilly Hollister andCarlie Cooper. Peter sees Mary Jane sadly leaving the party, while the guests all toast to a "Brand new day."
After Harry leaves town to take care of his child, Peter starts a relationship with Carlie Cooper. Spider-Man's hero career rose up again, and he joined the Avengers against many incoming threats.
Peter also found his dream job, thanks to Marla Madison, as a scientist at Horizon Labs where he had access to new technology, techology that he used to create a new suit to counter and take down Philip Urich, who took up the identity of the Hobgoblin after killing Daniel Kingsley. Alistair Smythe also breaks Scorpion out of prison and give him a new costume.
Revenge of the Spider-Slayer
Alistair Smythe returns to kill J. Jonah Jameson. He goes about doing this by creating his own army that includes Mac Gargan as the Scorpion. Smythe also gives Scorpion and his Spider-Slayer army a device that mimics Spider-Man's Spider-Sense and makes them much harder to take down.
Peter has no choice but to built a machine that can permently remove the slayer's Spider-Sense. However, he is cornered and is forced to set the bomb off while he is in radius and Peter loses his Spider-Sense as well.
A Spider-Slayer goes after J. Jonah Jameson, but his wife jumps in the way of an incoming attack and she dies.
No One Dies
After the death of Jameson's wife, Peter vows that no one else will die around him.
Peter as Spider-Man, soon faces off against a villian called Massacre who shot Spider-Man, since he didn't have his Spider-Sense. He then devolped a new bulletproof costume to aid with his loss of his Spider-Sense.
After the death of Johnny Storm, Peter honors Johnny's will by joining the Fantastic Four, mostly going by their new team name, the Future Foundation. He helped them on various missions with his new white costume.
Meanwhile, the Sinister Six aids in stealing techology for Doctor Octopus for a future plan he has.
Back alive, Ana started to think of a plan where she would turn everyone into spiders so that she could control them. With the help of the Jackal, she kidnapped Steve Rogers and turned him into the "Spider-King". She then got word that a cure was being made a Horizon Labs to cure all people given spider powers that would evenually turn into giant spiders that Ana would control. To combat this, Ana used her powers to force J. Jonah Jameson into killing Alistaire Smythe, who was coming up with a cure.
However, she was too late and the Spider-King was cured, making him Captain America again.
The Jackal then sent Tarantula and Kaine (Peter Parker's clone), to destroy the cure, but Spider-Man regained his spider-sense during the fight and Kaine into the lake of anti-bodies, curing him of his disfigured face, and making him look like a perfect twin clone of Peter Parker. Upset that things were not going her way, Ana used her Sonic Scream to kill the Jackal.
After Jackal's death, she fought against the cured Captain America and almost killed him, but Agent Venom helped out by using Captain America's shield to badly hurt Ana. Ana then transformed into a nearly 20 feet tall spider-human hybrid, by drawing power from anyone in New York who was mutated.
While Ana was busy fighting superheroes, Spider-Man used Doctor Octopus' octo-bots to carry out the cure to all infected New Yorkers. With her powers draining because of New Yorkers being cured, it was time for the killing blow. Ms. Marvel took Kaine, who was wearing the Big Time suit to avoid her sonic screams, and threw him at Ana's head and stabbed her in the back of the head using a stinger he grew from his arm. Any and all heroes currently fighting her, continued to attack her, causing her to explode all over.
Iron Man preformed an autopsy which confirmed that this was Adriana Soria and that she was dead once and for all.
After being infomed by the new Nova that the Phoenix Force is coming to Earth, Captain America goes to Utopia to ask Cyclops nicely for Hope Summers, to figure out the mess of the Phoenix Force coming for her and the possible destruction of Earth. After explaining that Hope could hold the key to rebirthing the entire mutant population after the events of M-Day nearly wiped mutant kind out, Cyclops declines.
Spider-Man is in the event in many teams searching for Hope across the world, and came to blows with many X-Men members, including his good friend Bobby Drake, Iceman.
After the Phoenix force was split into five pieces and possessed new hosts, Spider-Man was brought to K'un-Lun to train Hope Summers, due to a prophecy.
At first, Hope is unresponsive to him as a teacher, but after telling her what his uncle Ben always told him great power coming with great responsibility, her training start to go smoother.
When the Avengers attempted to free heroes trapped by the Phoenix Five team that included an enhanced Colossus and Magik, Spider-Man tries to slow them both down but instead got beat to a pulp by Colossus. Not willing to give up, Spider-Man took advantage of their hunger for power and managed to convince them to attack each other to take each other's power. And as they did, they were both knocked unconscious and ware depowered of their Phoenix Force powers. After Cyclops killed Professor X, Scarlet Witch and Hope Summers uttered the phrase "No more Phoenix!" and made the Phoenix dissapear.
After a visit to Horizon Labs, a teenager by the name of Andrew Maguire gets shocked with Peter Parker's new "Peter Particles" and earns energy based superpowers that gave him the ability to fly, absorb and release massive amounts of cosmic energy. Since Peter thought that since it was his fault Andy was given powers, he would take him under his wing as Spider-Man's first sidekick. After Andy's superpowers shut down a moving plane that the Avengers had to rescue that had J. Jonah Jameson and Aunt May on it, Spider-Man used Andrew's power against him to build a machine that depleted all of Andrew's powers'. Six months later as the Superior Spider-Man, Otto would restore 10 percent of Andrew's powers' and Andrew became the hero of Pittsburgh.
When he discovered he was dying, Doctor Octopus projected his mind into Peter's body, leaving Peter to die in Otto's failing one. Otto, now having Peter's body and powers vowed to destroy Peter's life for all the pain he did to Otto when he was in his dying body.
Peter, now in Otto's body tried to think of plan to switch back bodies with Otto, now in Peter's young body. This included breaking out supervillains to help Peter as Otto gain back his young body.
Peter made a tiny robot that would force switch Otto and Peter into the correct bodies once more, however upon activating this robot, it was revealed that Otto as Peter shielded his head so that another body switch couldn't happen. Otto as Peter sees himself as the victor, finally killing Peter Parker after a strong punch and fall from a high building.
Peter as Otto didn't give up, as he discovered that the Octobot managed to connect their minds although it could not swap them, and Peter forced Otto to relive his most suffering experiences and memories as Spider-Man, such as uncle Ben's death, Gwen's death and son.
Otto in Peter's body says he does not want this, but then realizes he can't change bodies back. Otto then changes his mind about ruining Peter's life and vowed to become the "Superior Spider-Man!" and protect the city in a way Peter never could.
As Peter, Otto made himself a modified costume of Peter's classic red and blue costume, now red and black with additional features.
Otto also took it upon himself to get Peter's doctorate, which the original Peter Parker never finished, and tried to improve Peter's life by dropping Mary Jane as a girlfriend and dealing with criminals more brutally then Peter ever did.
This behavior led people and other heroes to question Spider-Man's actions, including the Avengers, which he Otto himself quit.
When the Green Goblin returned as the Goblin King and began taking over NYC, Otto was struggling to fight him because the Goblin was aware that it was Otto in Spider-Man's body. After Peter relived all of Otto's memories, he came out of those memories and ready to take his body back. Otto willingly gave up Peter's body but asked him to save his love Anna Maria.
Peter changes back into his red and blue costume and rescues Miguel O'Hara (who was stuck in Peter's time) from the new Spider-Slayers. Peter then calls Aunt May, reassures her he's fine, and goes after the Goblin King. He runs into Liz Allan and her son, along with Dr.Stone. After Stone tries to hurt Peter, Peter tells Miguel to get them out. On the roof of the Alchemax building, Peter fights the Goblin King, who's confused at his return.
In the end, Peter saves Anna Maria, but the Goblin King gets away when Liz shocks Peter with a device. Peter is saddened when he realizes how much Otto and Anna cared about each other, and knowing someone, being Otto, had to die in the process of saving the day.
As Spider-Man, Peter is having a fight with Iguana when aunt May calls, asking if he'll be over for dinner with Anna Maria like he promised.
After defeating Iguana and webbing him up, Peter makes his way over to his company to deliver a presenation to other business people that will hopefully support his ideas.
However, Alchemax hires the the "Ghost" to destory Parker Industries' plans. As Peter showing off various robots he made, the Ghost tampers with various code to make the robots attack Peter, Anna and the various people with them.
Peter moves people out the way (without revealing his spider powers) and tell his assissant, the Living Brain to get everyone to the secret Spider-Man exit. After changing into his Spider-Man costume, Peter comes head to head with the Ghost he reveals that he has rigged the entire building to explode.
After defeating the Ghost with help, Peter changes back into his regular clothing which Anna brought for him. With Ghost captured, and everyone safe the building that once was Parker Industries completely collapses, with his workers blaming Peter for this mess, since he works with Spider-Man.
During the collapse of the mutiverse, Peter Parker along with other hop onto 616's Reed Richard liferaft to hopefully survive the Earth-616 and Earth-1610 incursion.
The liferaft crashed on Battleworld, a new large stretch of land created by the God of Battleworld, Doctor Doom, who takes various realities and puts them on one stretch of land. This was done by killing the Beyonders, the God's of the mutiverse who planned bombs in every version of Molecule Man to destroy the mutiverse and start new. Doom was tasked to kill all versions of MM, only to round them all up and use them to kill the Beyonders. The Beyonder's powers was then taken by Doctor Doom instead of Doctor Strange, and he used it to become a God and reshape the multiverse by putting various reality onto a new earth, Battleworld.
Strange comes to one of two liferafts on Battleworld, where he finds Miles Morales which he reveals towed away on the Cabal's liferaft to save himself. Miles then tells Strange he remembers his past reality, to Strange's surprise.
Another liferaft was found and opened by a Thor from the Thor Corps with the help of Sheriff Strange, now God Emperor Doom's right hand man and his eye and hears for Battleworld.
Out the raft appears 616 Peter Parker as Spider-Man, 616 Cyclops with the Phoenix Force, Jane Foster as Thor, 616 Black Panther, 616 Reed Richards, Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel and Star-Lord. Star-Lord believes that it has only been an hour that they have been held up in the raft.
However, Strange tells them that it has been eight years since Doom recreated Battleworld, and that he actually found their liferaft about three years ago, but didn't touch it. He goes on to say that Doctor Doom, now a God, saved them all and that very few, if any people remember their past life and reality, since Doctor Doom had modified their memories upon getting the Beyonder's powers.
Meanwhile, 616 Thanos and the Cabal fight against the Thor Corps, which are the police force in Battleworld and Doom sees this, but doesn't step in. Doctor Strange then teleports all the recently found 616 heroes to the battlefield to step in the battle.
While looking at the battle from his keep, Doomstadt, Doom and Sue Storm sees 616 Reed Richards, while Sue doesn't remember him, Doom says he has been looking for Reed for three years. Doom then teleports to the battlefield, with Scott Summers with the Phoenix Force challenging him. After blasting Thanos when he question's Doom "playing" as God, Cyclops then steps up to insult Doom, telling him he is not fit to rule and how Battleworld is now his. After Cyclops seemingly has the upper hand on Doom, Doom takes Scott by the neck and kills him by snapping his neck with one hand.
After this, Doctor Strange tells Black Panther to "Remember this." before he teleports the 616 heroes, Miles Morales and the Cabal away to random places on Battleworld, thinking that Doom will kill all of them. Strange then boldly tells Doom that he will not teleport them back and that for all the power he has amassed, he is still afraid of Reed Richards. Doom then kills Doctor Strange in one move for saying such words and for teleporting the heroes away.
Miles Morales and Star-Lord end up in a part of Battleworld that mixes both Earth-616's and Earth-1610's Manhattan into one land mass.
Back to Basics
Before the collaspe of Battleworld at the hands of 616 Reed Richards, it was revealed that Miles Morales actually granted Molecule Man's request of hunger and gave him a hamburger to which MM said "I owe you one".
After the world was restored to the former Earth-616, Miles and Peter were placed on a rooftop together with Miles finding out his mother is alive in this new world, a wish granted by Molecule Man.
After Secret Wars, things start to look up for Peter.
Peter make "Web Wear" a device that allows for unlimited data and internet on the go and starts the Uncle Ben Foundation, to help people in need, and has people running around as Spider-Man for him in order to drive off anyone who thinks Peter Parker and Spider-Man are the same.
In Shanghai, Spider-Man and Mockingbird are riding in the new and improved Spider-Mobile to catch people that are breaking into the Parker Industries Shanghai branch to steal the servers containing all the information from every Web Wear account in the world.
Spider-Man catches up to the bad guys car and zaps them with his electrical web shooters, with Mockingbird taking one of the members and asking him questions.
They take them back to the US, and Peter is in time to see Max Modell's marriage and present him with Horizon University as a gift.
Zodiac arrive with Prowler suiting up as Spider-Man, but getting put down easy. Peter then realizes he can't sneak off as Spider-Man, so he gives the master Web Wear watch he has, to the Zodiac group. He then has 12 hours to stop them before he hack into the Web Wear network.
Using his new stealth technology, Prowler and Spider-Man trace the group to an underwear base where it is revealed that the files from the Web Wear accounts were already sent around the world to all other bases. Spider-Man and Prowler leave, saving two guards and contacting Nick Fury and Mockingbird that the tracker within the files of Peter's Web Wear watch gave them the location of all the bases.
Peter then buys the Baxter Building and renames it Parker Industries, which causes a fight with Johnny Storm.
After things settle down, Peter and his team of Johnny Storm, Mockingbird and Prowler go to Europe to stop another thief from a museum by the Zodiac gang and their leader, Scorpio. After Scorpio hits the kill switch on all of his minions, Spider-Man saves them by shooting an antidote to save all them all.
Scorpio gets away and Spider-Man returns to America.
Meanwhile, a bandaged man is building a small army and Parker Industries larger investor is secretly Scorpio.
Spider-Man also quits the Uncanny Avengers because of Deadpool's reckless actions.
In the second Civil War, Spider-Man sides with Captain Marvel's side leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, foretold by an Inhuman named Ulysses. Meanwhile, Iron Man and his side are adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.
He finds himself at the center of trying to relay the message of “with great power comes great responsibility” to Ulysses.

Peter has bested Spider-Woman, the entire Fantastic Four, Wolverine, Red Hulk and Hulk.
Spider-Sense Disruption: Not many people can, but certain individuals can get past Peter's Spider-Sense, which makes sneak attacking and fighting Peter much easier.
Anti-Venom's Proximity: While Eddie Brock was Anti-Venom, if Spider-Man came into contact with him, his Spider-Powers would start to fade and Peter would get the weak, the more he was around Eddie.
Web-Shooters: When he first became Spider-Man, Peter invented web-shooters that allow him to shoot web-balls and web swing through New York City.
Web Fluid: Peter's web is very strong, as it can hold an entire person up by a single string, stick someone onto a wall, stick something together and so on. The fluid melt in an hour.

He found a black ball that morphed around his body, making his red and blue costume entirely black with a big white spider and white eye pieces. This costume gave Peter stronger, organic webbing that the suit made for him on the fly and was able to transform into clothes on command. The suit willingly removed itself from Peter after he passed out trying to get it off himself using church bells.
Spider-Armor MK I: Only used once, Peter made himself a metal costume to protect from gunfire. This limited his jumping and movement, but made him immune to gunfire.
Spider-Armor MK II: Peter created version 2.0 of his Spider-Armor to compensate for the loss of his Spider-Sense, due without this ability he can be easily wounded by bullets.
Spider-Armor MK III : Created by Peter with Horizon Labs's resources to fight the Sinister Six if needed.

''Iron Spider Armor: During the Civil War event, Tony made Peter a new armor like Spider-Man costume that had made features, and even allowed Peter to fly.
Stealth Suit: Made by Peter himself, the suit had different settings but was mainly used to combat the Hobgoblin's Sonic Scream and was used by Kaine to deal the final blow on the Spider-Queen while protecting against her deadly screams.
Electro Proof Costume: Only used once, when Electro's powers overloaded Peter made a new costume to combat this and so he wouldn't be shocked to death.

Spider-Man was able to keep pace with Captain Marvel at his best speed, surprising the Kree warrior, although Spidey mentioned it was mostly due to his practice with web-swinging over his career.
Spider-Man was ranked third on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes in 2011 and 2012.
Spider-Man was ranked number one on IGN's Top 25 Best Marvel Superheroes, the highest ranking of all Marvel characters.
Empire Magazines ranked Spider-Man as the fifth greatest comic book character out of the whole list, ranking as the second highest position of all of the Marvel heroes, only to be topped by Wolverine.
Ever since Peter's Uncle Ben took him to see a science fiction movie when he was little, Peter since then, has always been amazed by and loved science.
The first super-powered villain Spider-Man ever encountered was Supercharger, in Amazing Fantasy #18.
J. Jonah Jameson was the guest speaker at Peter Parker's high school graduation ceremony.
On several occasions, Spider-Man has been mistaken as a mutant. At one point, J. Jonah Jameson actually sent him to the X-Factor for confirmation, and another, he was hunted down by the Hellfire Club until the misunderstanding was corrected. If he was a mutant, Spider-Man would likely have belonged to the mutant sub-species Homo Insectus (that of the Spider-Queen) or a sub-sub species, homo arachnis. In an alternate reality where mutants where the dominant species culturally and demographically, Peter Parker posed as a legitimate mutant to achieve fame.
Spider-Man's famous mantra "with great power, comes great responsibility" is often attributed as a quote from Uncle Ben, however it was originally the concluding lines of narration to his first appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15, the anonymous narrator explaining the moral of the story, not advice from his beloved uncle. As this was the lesson he learned from his uncle's death, it slowly became associated with Uncle Ben, and the 2002 film chose to have the famous phrase come directly from Ben Parker as advice to the newly powered Peter and this is how the origin of the phrase is commonly misunderstood now.
