"I'm gonna lie close to the ground and continue being a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Keep helping the little guy."
―Peter Parker[src]

Peter Benjamin Parker is a high school student and a superhero with spider-like abilities, fighting crime as his alter ego Spider-Man.

After receiving his abilities from a spider's bite, Parker chose to protect Queens from crime with his powers, juggling his superhero duties and the demands of his high school life. Despite his best efforts to keep his identity secret from the world, he was found and recruited by Tony Stark in the Avengers Civil War, gaining a new suit and technology in exchange.

Following the Clash of the Avengers, Stark allowed Parker to keep the suit in his operations as Spider-Man. Parker forged a reputation for himself in New York City and became a well-known local neighborhood hero. He later stumbled into a group of criminals led by the Vulture, who were creating advanced weapons from stolen Chitauri technology, and went on a quest to defeat their leader in order to prove to Stark that he was worthy of being an Avenger. Only after defeating the Vulture did Parker discover the true responsibilities of a hero — so he declined an offer of membership in the Avengers in order to continue "helping the little guy".

Biography

Early Life

Growing Up in New York

Peter Benjamin Parker was born in New York City, New York. During his childhood, he was orphaned by his parents and went on to live with his Aunt May.[7] He grew up and was educated at Midtown School of Science and Technology; there, he made friends like Ned Leeds, who became his best friend but was also bullied by Flash Thompson, one of his classmates.

Peter Parker challenges a Hammer Drone

In 2011, Parker visited the Stark Expo and acquired toy replicas of the Iron Man helmet and glove. During his visit, Hammer Drones began attacking the expo sent by Ivan Vanko, prompting Iron Man to fight them. One drone landed in front of a fearless Parker, who held his hand up in defiance. Iron Man arrived just in the nick of time and destroyed the drone before thanking Parker for his work before flying off to continue the battle, leaving Parker completely awestruck.[8]

Becoming Spider-Man

"You got bit by a spider? Can it bite me? It'd probably hurt, right? You know what, whatever. Even if it did hurt, I'll let it bite me. Maybe. How much did it hurt?"
"Spider's dead, Ned."
Ned Leeds and Peter Parker[src]

After being bitten by a spider and acquiring spider-like abilities, Parker chose to fight crime in the streets of New York City as the masked superhero named Spider-Man. To keep his identity as Spider-Man a secret, Parker maintained his normal, unassuming lifestyle, refusing to join the football team or do anything he would not have done before. He used his powers to stop small crimes and save people in Queens.[9]

Internet Sensation

"That's uh, that's all on YouTube though, right? I mean that's where you found it. 'Cause you know that's all fake. It's all done on a computer."
―Peter Parker to Tony Stark[src]

Since the start of his superhero duties, Spider-Man captured the attention of several news organizations and reporters interested in superheroes[10]. Witnesses filmed amateur videos of several of his feats, such as quickly subduing a thief and stopping a speeding car from hitting a bus[11], and have posted said footage to numerous video hosting websites such as YouTube.[9]

Parker returns home to find Tony Stark there

"So, you're the Spiderling? Crime-Fighting-Spider? Spider-Boy?"
"...S-Spider-Man."
Tony Stark and Peter Parker[src]

Parker returned home from school, greeting his Aunt May and mentioning a 'crazy car' parked outside the apartment building. The presence of Tony Stark, his biggest idol, in the living room caught Parker off-guard and left him speechless. Parker became confused when Stark told his aunt that Stark Industries planned to give him a sizable grant, claiming that Parker had signed up for it in the past.

Tony recruits Peter

Stark shows Parker online footage of him.

During a private conversation in Parker's room, Stark showed him footage of the rumored "Spider-Man" that was said to be active in New York City for several months. His videos showed a figure in red and blue clothing apprehending criminals and stopping speeding cars with his bare hands. Stark jokingly wondered if that figure was not Parker, to which Parker awkwardly denied the figure's existence, claiming all of the footage had been edited.

Parker explains the origins of Spider-Man.

Parker kept claiming that the video was fake footage that was made on a computer, but his cover was blown when Stark discovered the makeshift outfit that Parker used as his costume. Parker had no other choice than to confess that he had been Spider-Man for six months. Stark ridiculed Parker for his cheap costume, but was impressed by, and complimented, the tensile strength of his web fluid and asked who had made it.

Parker is recruited into Iron Man's team.

Parker became defensive when Stark mocked the design of Parker's goggles from his costume, explaining that the goggles helped him focus his senses. When Stark asked why he became Spider-Man, Parker, without going into detail, explained that he understood that he needed to stop bad things from happening. Stark invited him to come to Germany to confront Captain America, but Parker claimed he had too much homework to join the mission.

Old Web-Shooter

Parker webs Tony Stark to the door knob.

Stark said that the mission could be dangerous and decided to tell Aunt May that he was taking Peter out on a field trip. As Stark walked toward the door, Parker over-reacted for a moment and used his Web-Shooters to web Stark's hand next to the door knob, telling him not to tell Aunt May. Stark relented but asked to be freed from his webbing, and Parker freed his hand from the door awkwardly so he could be allowed to leave. Parker and Stark then went to Germany.[9]

"This is the greatest day of my life."
―Peter Parker[src]

Parker was then escorted by Happy Hogan to Stark's private jet. While Happy was driving him, Parker made a video throughout his trip which Hogan told him that he can't show it to anyone. When Parker tried to make conversation with Hogan, he was ignored for the rest of the trip. When Parker arrived on the jet, Parker was amazed by all the cool features on it, such as its need for no pilots. When Parker sat down, Hogan was confused by Parker's awkwardness as he had never been on a plane before as he chose to sit across from him. While Hogan slept on the jet, Parker videoed him, waking him up in shock.

Parker then prepared for his fight and put on his original suit. Hogan walked in on Parker and, bewildered, asked Parker why he was not wearing the suit that Tony Stark made him. Parker, who was unaware of such a suit, then located the suitcase in another part of his hotel room and opened it, revealing the new suit and its features and upgrades. Parker, speechless, put on the suit and joined Hogan who took him to Flughafen Leipzig-Halle airport.[12]

"Yeah, we don't really need to start a conversation."
Iron Man and Spider-Man[src]

While waiting for Iron Man's cue, Spider-Man filmed Iron Man, Captain America, Black Widow, War Machine and Black Panther in a standoff. While he was wondering who was the "new guy" who was standing alongside the Avengers, Iron Man ordered Spider-Man to come by shouting "underoos". Spider-Man quickly placed his phone,[12] revealed himself, and stole Captain America's Shield with his webbing, before getting distracted at the sight of the Avengers, much to Iron Man's annoyance. Iron Man and Captain America continued to argue about the Sokovia Accords while Spider-Man looked on while awaiting his next orders, keeping the shield to ensure Rogers was at a disadvantage.

Spider-Man asks what he should do next.

Spider-Man was surprised by Ant-Man at first, who had managed to sneak atop the shield and strike him in order to return the shield to Captain America. As the former teammates began to fight each other, Spider-Man asked Iron Man what to do. He told Spider-Man to keep his distance and use his Web-Shooters against Captain America and his companions, as Stark did not want to hurt any of them or Spider-Man himself during the fight with the various heroes.

After fighting Captain America, Spider-Man picked up his phone and described what happened during his scuffle. However, while he was telling his story, Spider-Man witnessed Ant-Man transforming himself into Giant-Man. Realizing that he had to go and help his team fight Giant-Man, Spider-Man placed his phone on the ground,[12] and cursed in amazement. When War Machine was thrown by Giant-Man, he was about to smash into an aircraft parked just outside, but Spider-Man saved him by firing his Web-Shooters at War Machine and pulling him away from the aircraft.

Towards the end of the battle, Spider-Man, inspired by the movie The Empire Strikes Back, came up with a strategy to defeat Ant-Man. He webbed up his knees so that Ant-Man lost his balance, and then let Iron Man and War Machine hit him against the helmet with full speed. Ant-Man fell over, hitting Parker, making him fly into a pile of wooden boxes; knocking him unconscious for a short while on the battlefield while the fight continued elsewhere on the battlefield.

After the battle, Iron Man quickly checked on Spider-Man and told the exhausted Parker, whose mask had come out of his face, that he was done and should go home, threatening to call his Aunt May if he did not.

"No."

In his hotel room, Parker filmed himself describing in excitement what had happened during the Clash of the Avengers.

He learned from Karen that the Spider-Man Suit has recorded everything he did while wearing it.

Losing His New Suit

SMH Trials 1

Parker argues with Iron Man

"I'm gonna need the suit back."
"But I'm nothing without this suit!"
"If you're nothing without this suit, then you shouldn't have it."
Iron Man and Spider-Man[src]

Stark talked to Parker. He admonishing him for his reckless actions that would have resulted in innocent people dying. Parker countered that he tried to warn Stark of the danger of Vulture but he refused to listen to him. He further said that if Stark would be here in person if he actually cared. Stark stepped out of the suit and answered that he did listen to Parker. Stark told Parker that he was the only one who believed in him in spite of everyone else believed he was crazy to recruit a kid. He was the one who tipped the FBI about the Vulture and they would have succeeded if it wasn't for Parker's action.

Parker is told to return the Spider-Man Suit

Then Stark demanded the suit back. Parker tearfully protested and pleaded that he was nothing without the suit and that it was all he had. Stark replied that if he was really so depended on the suit then he wasn't worthy of it. Stark returned Parker home and gave him a t-shirt to wear.

May Parker comforts Parker after his lost the 'Stark internship'

Once home he found May frustrated and worried for him. She has been calling everywhere for Peter's whereabouts and she learned that Peter has been skipping classes and detention. She demanded to know what he has been doing. In tears, Peter covered it up by explaining that he lost his 'Stark Internship'. May believed him and comforted her nephew.[12]

Homecoming

Demoralized by the recent events and having lost his suit, Parker returned to his daily life and put his superhero activities on hold. With the upcoming homecoming celebration coming soon, Parker prepared himself for the celebration. In school, he met Toomes. He talked to her and learned that she had been too busy handling the celebration to find a date. Parker took the chance to ask her out and she accepted.

May Parker teaches Parker to dance

Delighted, Peter asked May for help to help him dress for the celebration which included learning how to make a tie. On the evening for Homecoming, May drove Peter to the Toomes Residence.

Parker headed to the residence and rang the doorbell, nervously waiting for Toomes' parents to open the door. To his shock, the man who opened the door was Adrian Toomes who was none other than Vulture. Having previously seen Toomes' face during their most recent skirmish, Parker was on guard as Toomes politely welcomed him inside the residence.

Parker tried to hide his displeasure from Toomes as well as the revelation that his date's father was the man he has been hunting all this time. After awkwardly taking some picture with Liz, Toomes drove the two to the celebration. During their drive to the school, Parker listened as Toomes explained to her father about Parker and his disappearance during Washington D.C. Toomes was able to deduce that Parker was Spider-Man based on this information as well as the similarity with Parker's voice.

SMH This is my Life 5

Parker attends the Homecoming dance

Stopping outside the school, Toomes told his daughter to get inside first while he has a 'dad's talk' with Parker. Once alone, Toomes showed his color and asked Parker if Liz knew to which Parker declined. Toomes warned Parker to stay away from his business. He told Parker that he was grateful that he saved his daughter's life and for that, he gave him one chance to walk away with his life. Toomes gave Parker one final warning that if he chose to pursue him, he will kill him and everyone he loved.

Parker tells Liz Toomes he has to leave

As Parker began headed toward the celebration, he was in deep misgivings. He could stay and be with Toomes, which was what he wanted. But that would mean leaving Vulture to steal alien tech which would mean more weapons that will inevitably result in innocent people dying. He could go off and pursue Vulture but that would mean Toomes would lose her father. Ultimately Parker chose his responsibility as Spider-Man. He entered the celebration and apologized to Toomes, telling her that she deserves better and then left her.[12]

Against Shocker

SMH Trailer2 50

Spider-Man smashes into a school bus

Parker went to grab his home-made suit that he has stashed beneath the lockers. Hastily putting on the suit, Spider-Man went outside only to be ambushed by Shocker. Spider-Man was unprepared for his presence and his enemy's attack caused him to lose his web-shooter putting him at a disadvantage. Shocker relentless kept attacking Spider-Man, smashing him through school buses. On the ground, Spider-Man asked why Vulture send him here, to which Shocker replied that he'll never know.

SMH Fan's Guide 32

Spider-Man fights Shocker

Before Shocker could hit him again, Spider-Man was saved by the timely arrival of Leeds who stopped Shocker's attack with the web-shooter. Immediately taking the advantage, Spider-Man defeated Shocker and webbed him against a school bus. Spider-Man informed Leeds about Vulture's true identity and told him to call Happy Hogan and to track his phone. And then Spider-Man went off.

Spider-Man stopped Thompson who was on his way home with his date. He stopped him and demanded him to get out of the car. He then drove away in Thompson's car.

Spider-Man finds Vulture

With Leeds help, Spider-Man managed to track Toomes to an old warehouse. He went inside and found him standing near a working table. Toomes said that he admired Spider-Man's determination and offered to work together. Spider-Man refused and webbed his hands onto the table. He demanded to know why Toomes could do this to his family. He replied that he was only doing his crimes for them. Spider-Man insisted that selling weapons were wrong. Toomes countered that men like Stark earned their fortune by selling weapons and there was no difference between him and Stark. Spider-Man asked why he was telling him this.

SMH Trailer3 37

Spider-Man dodges the Vulture's Exo-Suit

Then Toomes revealed that he can remotely control his suit and his wings seemingly began attacking Spider-Man. He dodged all of the attacks and taunted Toomes only for him to reply that he wasn't aiming at him. The wings smashed through the last supporting beam of the warehouse and debris collapsed upon Spider-Man. Vulture dons his suit and left him to die.

Beneath the rubble, Parker was trapped between two big debris. Unable to move and barely able to breathe, Parker desperately cried for someone to help him, only for his plea for help going unanswered. Struggling and in pain, Parker spotted his mask in the water and his own reflection. Remembering Stark's word, Parker finally understands what his mentor meant. With or without the suit, he was Spider-Man.

Encouraged by this realization, Spider-Man regained his resolve and began to painfully push the rubble off of him. Finally, he broke free of his entrapment and determinedly pursued Vulture.

Hijacking of the Stark Cargo Plane

SMH Trailer2 60

Spider-Man managed to find Vulture. He webbed on to him as he flown toward the Stark Cargo Plane. Unaware of his presence, Vulture continued his hijacking. Crawling on the plane, Spider-Man attempted to remove Vulture's wings that were covering the hole he made. It wasn't long before Vulture learned about his presence and another fierce fight happened in the sky.

SMH Trailer2 64

Spider-Man dodges the Vulture's Exo-Suit

Lacking his new suit's advanced capabilities, Spider-Man could only improvise and dodged Vulture's relentless attacks. Their fight resulted in extensive damage to the cargo plane. When Spider-Man realized that the plane was about to crash into New York City, he used his webs and strength to change the crashing to the beach of Coney Island instead.

He succeeded and the plane crashed into the beach.

Duel at Coney Island

Exhausted and injured, Spider-Man was forced to take off his mask to breath. Without the mask, his senses overwhelmed him and allowed Vulture take him by surprise. Despite the damage on his adversary's suit, Vulture maintained the advantage and brutally attacked Spider-Man.

SMH Trailer2 53

Despite Spider-Man best effort to defend himself, already exhausted, unable to focus and no nearby tall buildings to web onto, Vulture heavily injured him. Holding him up with his wings, Vulture was about to kill him when he spotted a nearby crate. He then left Spider-Man on the ground and went to grab it instead. Spider-Man noticed that Vulture's wings were about to explode and tried to save him.

Finally, Vulture's wings exploded and crashed back down to the ground in flames. Spider-Man went into the flames and managed to find and save Toomes. He then webbed him to the remaining cargo and watched from afar as the police went to arrest Toomes.

With the Vulture finally defeated, everything began to return back to normal. However, with Toomes arrested and his crimes revealed, Liz Toomes and her mother decided to move to Oregon. In the decathlon team meeting, they revealed Toomes would be replaced by Michelle Jones. During the meeting, Parker got a text from Happy Hogan to meet in the bathroom. Parker excused himself and met him. Having apologised for ignoring him and not treating him seriously, Hogan thanked Parker for saving the Stark Cargo Plane from the Vulture.

Hogan then took Parker to the New Avengers Facility where Parker marveled at the advanced technology that the facility possessed and met with Tony Stark who was waiting for him. Stark apologized for taking away Parker's suit though he was quick to add that he had it coming. He then admitted that he was wrong about Parker's capabilities and that he was worthy to join The Avengers. Stark displayed a new Spider-Man Suit. He told him that if Parker was ready, he would introduce the world to the newest member of the Avengers, Spider-Man.

Parker and Tony Stark discuss the Avengers

While Parker was excited at the prospect of joining the Avengers and working with his mentor, his conflict with the Vulture has given him a newfound maturity and he knew that he had more to learn before he was ready. Parker politely declines Stark's offer and simply stated that he prefers to stay 'on the ground' for the time being and be 'a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man'. His mentor respected his decision. As Parker was about to leave, he turned and asked if this was simply a secret test of character, Stark replied that it was and he passed. Unknown to Parker, Stark was serious about his desire to add Parker to the team.

Parker is given back the Spider-Man Suit

Back home, he found that Stark had returned his second suit. Excited, Spider-Man put on the suit again, ready to resume his heroics. Unknown to him at first, May saw him put on the suit.

Personality

"When you can do the things that I can, but you don't... and then the bad things happen, they happen because of you."
―Peter Parker to Tony Stark[src]

Outside of his Spider-Man alter ego, Parker lives the life of a normal 15-year-old high school student. He cares deeply for his Aunt May. He is a very intelligent science enthusiast, capable of inventing and building his own web-shooters. He gathers both science and comic books in his room, along with his Spider-Man costume, which he hides in a tiny hatch above the ceiling.

Parker is a friendly but shy and awkward individual; he is happy to talk but often stumbles on his own words in a conversation. As opposed to Iron Man or Captain America, Parker makes it a point to keep his identity secret since if such knowledge was made public his aunt would be worried sick and he would have major trouble with the law on the grounds of vigilantism. He even restrained Tony Stark with webbing when Stark implied to tell his aunt his identity.

Parker is also highly impressionable towards figures of authority, which is likely due to his young age and inexperience. An example of this was towards Captain America, when asked about why he was fighting, Parker stated that it was because Stark had said that Rogers was in the wrong, while he had no opinion of his own on the matter. Parker was also very excited to be in a fight with other superheroes, to the point where people on both Captain America's and Iron Man's teams were asking how old he is, due to his child-like behavior during the airport battle. As such, he was also the least experienced fighter at the airport battle.

A neophyte to being a superhero, Parker idolizes Iron Man and sees him as a role model, he even admires and has respect for Tony Stark, even when the latter contemplated telling Aunt May his identity which he was strongly against. Through his first official mission as Spider-Man, Parker showed a strong desire to impress the other superheroes and prove his worth, especially towards Iron Man. As Spider-Man, Parker is courageous and capable, being able to come up with clever strategies due to his scientific expertise. He frequently annoys his enemies with fast-talking humor and quipping, prompting members of both Captain America's faction and Iron Man's to ask how old he was during the Clash of the Avengers.

During his fledgling career as a superhero, Peter was shown to be stressing over his jokes and trying to make a lasting impression on people. He does value life, ordering Karen to not make him kill anyone when he activated his 'advanced combat mode'. He even risked his own life to save the Vulture from an explosion and resulting fire, despite the Vulture attempting to kill him and possessing knowledge of his secret identity.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

"Look at you go. Wow, nice catch! 3000 pounds, 40 miles an hour? It's not easy, you got mad skills."
Tony Stark on the video of Spider-Man catching a car.[src]
  • Spider Physiology: After having been bitten by a genetically altered spider, Peter Parker has now gained the proportionate powers of a spider.[14]
    • Wall-Crawling: Spider-Man can adhere to walls, ceilings, and other surfaces in order to scale them and had said that he does not use any adhesive gloves or fabrics to do it. This ability allows him to stick to almost any surface when willing himself to, as physical contact with said surfaces creates a locking connection necessary to support his body, even when he is inverted above the ground. Alternatively, Peter could make individual portions of his body adhesive, which allowed him to stick his foot onto the chest of a bank robber to fling him into a wall.
    • Superhuman Strength: Spider-Man has considerable superhuman strength, due to it being the proportional strength of a spider. Although he is relatively untrained, his strength alone is sufficient enough to catch a 1.4-ton car that was moving at 40 miles an hour when it was just inches away from hitting a bus. He was also able to casually overpower the Winter Soldier and his cybernetic arm, to break through a bulletproof glass window with only a few blows, as well as to support the weight of a jet bridge that weighs about 30 tons, though the latter visibly strained him to do so. Also, Spider-Man was ultimately able to lift the considerable portion of a concrete roof that Vulture had collapsed on top of him, though doing so painfully strained him.
    • Superhuman Speed: Spider-Man can move faster than an ordinary human and is adept at dodging quickly. His speed has allowed him to casually catch the Winter Soldier's bionic arm before it could even punch him. During the Avengers Civil War, Spider-Man was able to outrun Black Widow, as well as evade Scarlet Witch's telekinetic attacks.
    • Superhuman Durability: Spider-Man's body is physically resistant towards impact force, as he has taken a punch from Winter Soldier and a spinning air kick from Captain America, without any serious injuries. Additionally, Spider-Man easily endured a collision with Falcon's Redwing flying at full force and a strike from Captain America's Shield, as well as being backhanded across the airport from a gigantic Ant-Man, falling unharmed from from several stories in the process. Indeed, Peter only sustained a black eye from the entire Clash of the Avengers and was able to pass it off as a result of bullies at school while telling his Aunt May. Moreover, Spider-Man survived Vulture collapsing a considerable portion of a concrete roof on top of him, with only minor injuries. However, according to Karen, even Spider-Man would not be able to survive a fall from the top of Washington Monument. He later survives a plane crash and falls from the inside of the Washington Monument, and after his injuries, he recovered faster than a human would.
    • Superhuman Agility: Spider-Man is superhumanly agile, capable of swinging around on thin spider-webbing and jumping great distances without difficulty. His bones, muscles, and joints have more elastic strength and durability, allowing him to perform gymnastic and contortionist maneuvers without damaging his bone structure. He used his agility to outmaneuver and beat both Winter Soldier and Falcon, to dodge most of the Vulture's attacks, and to even dodge the many cars that Scarlet Witch telekinetically hurled at him.
"When whatever happened, happened; it's like my senses have been dialed to eleven. There's just way too much input."
―Peter Parker to Tony Stark[src]
Spider-Man Civil War 04

Spider-Man sensing an object being thrown.

  • Enhanced Senses: Spider-Man's senses are greatly enhanced, with him describing them as being "dialed to eleven". Hence, Peter is able to sense potentially things shortly before they occur. For example, an object is being thrown at Spider-Man he will usually be aware of it, even if it is hurled from far away and he is facing the opposite direction.
    • Enhanced Vision: Spider-Man's sense of sight is superhuman, to the point that he is forced to wear dark goggles to prevent it from handicapping him in a battle.
    • Superhuman Reflexes: Spider-Man's brain responds to stimuli at an accelerated rate, alerting him to dangers around him. This allows him to effectively dodge and counter incoming attacks in combat. Peter was able to catch the small cartridge of web fluid tossed to him by Tony Stark, even though he was facing the away from him. This awareness functions on a subconscious level, thus alerting Spider-Man of dangers he cannot readily notice at first. He's also able to dodge Vulture's Exo-Suit at full speed. During the Skirmish on the Staten Island Ferry, he sensed someone coming his way and he webbed him up.

Abilities

  • Gifted Intelligence: Peter Parker is a highly intelligent science enthusiast, with aptitudes in chemistry, physics, and engineering, developing a highly advanced chemical compound into a silk-like material and constructed his own web-shooters (the sophistication of it impressed Tony Stark). As Spider-Man, he can also come up with witty and incredibly annoying quips and references, much to his allies and enemies' irritation. In addition, he was a valued member of the Midtown School of Science and Technology academic decathlon team, with Liz Toomes claiming that Peter was its most intelligent member.
    • Tactician: Parker uses the laws of physics to his advantage in battle, notably when he let Iron Man and War Machine know of his plan to tie up Ant-Man's legs, after which they knocked the immobilized giant down. Peter is still relatively inexperienced, however, since he asked Iron Man for advice during the Avengers Civil War, and later consistently asked for Karen's assistance in taking down Vulture and his gang.
  • Combatant: Ever since he fought crime for six months, Peter's style of combat is somewhat instinctive and improvised. It emphasizes the use of his superhuman strength, speed, agility, and web-shooters. Hence, Peter uses quick, powerful attacks and agile movements while firing his spider-webs to immobilize his enemies. However, he is not skilled in martial arts and often gets distracted while in combat. Despite his inexperience, Spider-Man easily defeated both Falcon and Winter Soldier, who are military-trained hand-to-hand combatants. Spider-Man was also able to temporarily hold his own against the far more experienced Captain America.
  • Master Acrobat: Due to his superhuman agility, Spider-Man can perform acrobatic moves. 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 over 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.
  • Trilingualism: 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.

Equipment

"How'd you find me? You put a tracker in my suit or something?"
"I put everything in your suit."
―Spider-Man and Iron Man[src]
SMH Peter Parker's Phone 7

Spider-Man is given his newest suit

  • Spider-Man Suit: Parker originally wore a handmade suit while operating on the streets of New York City. 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. Parker would later use an upgraded and more refined suit, which was designed by Tony Stark to focus his superhuman senses.The new suit also included moving eyepieces that resemble camera shutters to filter out stimuli while in use.
    • Utility Belt: The suit has a utility belt seamlessly integrated into it. It contains spare web fluid cartridges for Spider-Man's Web-Shooters.
    • Spider-Drone: The spider emblem on the front of Parker's suit can detach and act as a tracking device. It has a drone mode allowing 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-Drone.
"You have 576 possible web-shooter combinations."
Karen[src]
SMH Trailer2 7

Spider-Man fires his Web-Shooters

  • Web-Shooters: A pair of wrist-mounted mechanical devices used by Spider-Man to project synthetic webbing. Parker invented the first pair while Tony Stark created a new and improved pair to go along with his new suit. Though, this new pair supplied by Stark merely involved technological improvements and a few new features while the overall mechanics and webbing itself Stark did not attempt to replace. The upgraded Web-Shooters come with selective web types and a laser targeting system for accuracy.
    • 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.
    • Spider-Signal: A red light emitted from Spider-Man's web-shooters, which Tony Stark added much to Parker's surprise and delight.

  • 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 larb chicken.
  • Peter normally gets out of school at 2:45 pm.

Behind the Scenes

  • Tom Holland made audition tapes together with Jon Bernthal while filming Pilgrimage, both landing their roles of Peter Parker and Frank Castle respectively.[17]
  • Tom Holland learned that he had been cast as Spider-Man on Instagram: "I was actually having a really bad day, and I found out on Instagram. I was in my bed, I was scrolling through Instagram, and Marvel had posted a photo of Spider-Man. It said, 'Go to our website, and find out who it is'. I opened the screen, and then it said my name, and I went nuts."[18]
  • During his audition, Tom Holland mentioned that Robert Downey, Jr. gave him advice, saying "Listen, I remember my screen test for Iron Man. I remember how terrified I was. Just think of it as an audition. It's nothing too scary. If you get it wrong, we'll just start again. No pressure.".
  • Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the fifth live-action incarnation of the character, following incarnations portrayed by Nicholas Hammond, Shinji Todō, Tobey Maguire, and Andrew Garfield.
    • Tom Holland has stated that while he has not been in contact with either of them, he will take inspiration in his performance from both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's incarnations of Spider-Man.[19]

  • Asa Butterfield, Charlie Rowe, Judah Lewis, Matt Lintz and Charlie Plummer were the final contenders for Spider-Man with Rowe being the runner-up for the role.
  • In Captain America: Civil War, Spider-Man kicks but never punches. Holland noted it was a conscious decision to emphasize Peter's age: "Every decision we make on set is based off, 'How would a kid react in this situation?' so every fight scene we have is designed in a way that's almost child-friendly, so he never actually punches anyone. It's all done [by him] kind of by accident."[20]
  • In the Italian dubbing of the Iron Fist episode Eight Diagram Dragon Palm, Ward Meachum mentions Spider-Man when he compares Danny Rand's scaling of a building, instead of Daredevil.[21]
  • In an interview with the Huffington Post, Holland confirmed that the child that Iron Man rescues from the Hammer Drones in Iron Man 2 was, in fact, Peter Parker after "literally" having conversation with Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige "only 20 minutes ago". Jon Watts revealed in an interview with Uproxx that the boy retroactively revealed to be Parker was portrayed by Jon Favreau's son, Max Favreau.

Transparent AOU Logo
The Marvel Cinematic Universe wiki has a collection of quotes related to Spider-Man.
  1. 1.0 1.1 In Captain America: Civil War, Peter Parker is 15 years old. As Rogers watches TV in Civil War, the Attack on the IFID Headquarters is stated to be "last month". The Spider-Man: Homecoming Prelude also states that the Bombing of the Vienna International Centre is "one month later", after Lagos. WHiH gave the timeline date for the Lagos incident as May 3, 2016, putting the rest of the events of Captain America: Civil War in June. However, in Spider-Man: Homecoming, it jumps forward to "two months later," to the firm date of September 8, 2016. Assuming the 2 is rounded, this still works with June so long as it is very late June. It has to be as late as possible in June, but before school ended in New York on June 28th (1, 2), as Parker gets home from school and still has homework to do. In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Stark says that he took Parker for the "weekend," therefore making the date he picks up Parker Friday June 24th, and when he returns him the very early hours of Monday June 27th. These are the only dates which fit as being a weekend, before school ends, a rounded 2 months before September 8th, and still the month following the May 3, 2016 Lagos incident, as well as a loose (May to June) "one month" after the incident, thus placing Captain America: Civil War firmly around these dates. Therefore, with Parker's role beginning on June 24, 2016, he has to have been born at the latest on June 23, 2001. In Spider-Man: Homecoming he is still said to be "15", and that film ends on September 26, 2016 (the Monday following the homecoming dance on September 23rd), therefore meaning Parker was born at the earliest on September 27, 2000. So, Parker's birthday is in the region of September 27, 2000-June 23, 2001.
