"When you can do the things that I can...but you don't...and then the bad things happen, they happen because of you."
―Spider-Man[src]

Peter Parker is a high school student and a superhero who possesses spider-like abilities due to a spider-bite and uses his superpowers to fight crime under the alter ego of Spider-Man. Despite his best efforts to keep his identity secret from the world, he was found and recruited by Tony Stark, gaining a new suit and technology in exchange.

Peter Parker forged a name for himself in New York City and became well-known as a local neighborhood hero, fighting against Vulture, who is creating advanced weapons from stolen alien technology. After defeating Vulture, Peter discover the true responsibilities of a hero, so he decided to decline Stark's offer of membership in the Avengers in order to continue helping the little guy however he could.

When Thanos and his Black Order launched an attack on New York in search of the Time Stone, Peter helped Iron Man and Doctor Strange fend off the invaders. He and Stark stowed away aboard the Black Order's ship to rescue Strange from Ebony Maw, who he and Iron Man threw from the ship while going to the planet Titan. Peter was “knighted” as an official Avenger after this feat. There, Parker battled Thanos only for a despot to beat him into submission. Later Parker along with the rest of half of the universe were disintegrated once Thanos completed the Infinity Gauntlet.

History

Captain America: Civil War

Peter Parker is a high school student, living in Queens New York City, who has been using his enhanced agility and a device to shoot tensile webbing to fight crime, while disguised as a spider-based hero. When Peter arrived at his apartment, Tony Stark was talking to his aunt about a certain grant. Tony asks May to talk to him privately. Tony then asked him why he's doing this, Parker explains that he understands the price of not doing the right thing. Tony asked them to come to Germany, despite not wanting to go, Parker decides to go along so that his secret identity won't be told to Aunt May.

Trying to flee Berlin and reach Siberia before Zemo, Steve Rogers and his team assemble at Leipzig Halle Airport, where they hope to take a chopper out of the country. When sirens indicate the airport is being evacuated, Rogers instructs his team to suit up, and travels to a chopper alone, where he is confronted by Stark alongside his allies, including Parker who now has a new costume courtesy of Stark, and calling himself Spider-Man in front of Captain America. When Rogers refuses to back down, the Avengers get into a massive fight which destroys a large section of the airport. During the fight, the Avengers decides to buy time for Rogers and Barnes to reach the Quinjet, at the expense of imprisonment. Ant-Man uses his suit to grow gargantuan, which tips the scales and creates enough of a distraction to allow Rogers and Barnes to reach a jet. The two are confronted by Natasha Romanoff, but she can't bring herself to take them down and allows them to leave in Stark's Quinjet, while the rest of the Avengers are captured. As Stark and Rhodes chase the jet, Vision attempts to blast Falcon, who is following them, out of the sky. However, he misses and hits Rhodes, who plummets to the ground and is left paralyzed. Romanoff, knowing she will be arrested for acting against the accords, goes into hiding. Parker is injured in the fight, and the grateful Stark sends Peter back home, much to the former's dismay.

Later on, Peter discovers a red beam of light emitted from his Web-Shooters that Stark had programmed, projecting the Spider-Signal.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Months later, following the Avengers' internal dispute, Peter Parker resumes his studies after Stark tells him he is not yet ready to become an Avenger. Over the objections of his Aunt May, Peter quits his school's decathlon team in order to spend more time focusing on his "Stark Industries internship", which is a cover for his crime-fighting activities as Spider-Man.

One night, after preventing Toomes' associates from robbing an ATM, Peter returns to his room at his Queens apartment only for his best friend Ned to discover his secret identity. On another night, Peter comes across Toomes' associates Schultz and Brice selling Chitauri weaponry to local gangster Aaron Davis. When he tries to intervene, Peter nearly loses his life at Toomes' hands and is rescued by Stark. Toomes later kills Brice for jeopardizing the operation.

Peter works with Ned to remove the power core. A tracking device leads Schultz to Midtown School, but Peter and Ned manage to evade him. After planting his own tracking device on Schultz and learning that it leads to Maryland, Peter rejoins the decathlon team and accompanies them to Washington, D.C. for Nationals.

Working with Ned, Peter disables the tracker implanted in his Spider-Man suit and unlocks all its secret features. He later tries to stop Toomes from stealing weapons from a D.O.D.C. truck, but ends up being overpowered and trapped inside the truck, causing him to miss Nationals. When he discovers that the Chitauri power core is unstable, Peter tracks Ned to the Washington Monument, arriving just as the core explodes and traps Ned in an elevator. Evading local authorities, Peter manages to save Ned and fellow classmate Liz before the elevator plummets.

Returning to New York City, Peter persuades Davis to reveal Toomes' whereabouts. Confronting Toomes and his associates at the Staten Island Ferry, Peter captures the group's new buyer Mac Gargan while Toomes escapes after a malfunctioning weapon tears the ferry in half. Stark helps Peter save the passengers before admonishing him for his recklessness and taking the suit away. While picking up Liz for Midtown's annual homecoming dance, Peter learns that she is Toomes' daughter. Deducing Peter's secret identity, Toomes threatens retaliation if he continues to interfere with his plans.

During the homecoming dance, Peter realizes Toomes is planning to hijack the Stark cargo plane transporting weaponry from Avengers Tower to the team's new headquarters in upstate New York. Leaving the dance and donning his homemade Spider-Man suit, Peter is ambushed by Schultz only for Ned to save him. Peter then confronts Toomes in his lair, who attempts to persuade him to his side. When Peter refuses, Toomes destroys the building's support beams and leaves him to die.

Managing to escape, Peter intercepts Toomes on-board the now-damaged plane, steering it towards the beach near Coney Island. The two engage in a confrontation that ends with Peter saving Toomes' life and leaving him for the police.

Sometime later, Peter learns that Liz is moving away and both had to sat good bye to each other. Happy Hogan calls him over a during the decathlon tea mmeeting and told that Stark offers him a trip to the Avengers facility. Later, Stark propose to Peter a new Iron Spider suit and an invitation to join the Avengers. Peter later declines Stark's invitation to join the Avengers and inspires Stark to bring an engagement ring to a press conference where Pepper Potts is present. Upon returning home, Peter discovers that Stark has returned his upgraded suit and puts it on just as May walks into his room.

Avengers: Infinity War

During a bus trip, Parker woke up when he sensed the appearance of an alien warship hovering over New York. Understanding the gravity of the situation, he asked Ned Leeds to create a distraction which Leeds promptly did when he warned the rest of the students about the warship. Using the distraction, Parker donned his mask and headed toward the conflict. He managed to arrive in time to assist his mentor, Iron Man, as he fought against Cull Obsidian. During the battle, one of their associates, Doctor Strange was defeated and captured by Ebony Maw and Iron Man tasked Spider-Man to rescue the sorcerer.

Despite Spider-Man's best effort to rescue Doctor Strange, he was unable to retrieve him and was subsequently pulled toward the alien warship. He nearly suffocated as the ship left Earth's atmosphere but was promptly rescued by the intervention of Iron Man who summoned the Iron Spider Suit. Despite Iron Man's orders to return home, Spider-Man remained on board and infiltrated the ship.

Spider-Man infiltrated the ship for some time. He eventually managed to locate Stark, receiving a brief scolding from his mentor and defending his actions, Stark reluctantly allowed Parker to assist him. They both managed to locate Strange as Ebony Maw tortured him to force him to give up his Infinity Stone. Parker suggested a plan to distract their opponent, using a strategy from a movie called, Aliens.

Spider-Man waited as his mentor went to distract their enemy and surprised him by blasting a hole on the side of the ship. Ebony Maw was sucked into the vacuum of space and was subsequently killed. Spider-Man narrowly managed to save Strange from the same fate through the use of his new suit's spider legs. Polite as ever, Parker introduced himself to Doctor Strange, who returned the gesture; however, Parker mistook Strange's proper title for his superhero name. Parker watched as Stark and Strange discussed and argued about how to confront their enemy Thanos. After debating, Strange reluctantly agreed to help confronting Thanos. Stark then officially made Parker a member of the Avengers, making him happy.

Tony Stark suggested him, Doctor Strange, and Spider-Man leave it to go to its destination, bringing them to a planet called Titan. Parker assisted Stark with steering and landing the ship on the planet. After crash-landing, they began to prepare themselves before they were attacked by a new group of arrivals, called the Guardians of the Galaxy. A brief scuffle happened aboard the ruined ship which ended when Spider-Man was held at gunpoint by Star-Lord and Iron Man capturing Drax the Destroyer. Eventually, both groups learned that they are both after Thanos and an uneasy alliance was formed between them.

Leaving the ruined ship, everyone stared planning on how to beat Thanos. Strange meditated with the Time Stone to find a way for them to win; despite the extreme amount of ways they lose, there was a single future in which they win. Eventually, the Mad Titan arrived on the planet which was revealed to be his former home world. A fierce battle ensued on the ruined world as Spider-Man fought alongside his allies to subdue and take off the Infinity Gauntlet to keep him from using the weapon.

The alliance nearly succeeded until Star-Lord's outrage by the reveal of the death of his lover, Gamora, at the hands of Thanos, ruined Mantis' effort to subdue the titan. This allowed Thanos to utilize his gauntlet and turn the tide back in his favor. Thanos succeeded with taking the Time Stone from Strange and teleported away from the battle to locate the final stone on Earth.

Thanos succeeded with collecting all of the Infinity Stones and unleashed the full extent of its power to exterminate half of the population of the entire universe with a mere snap of his fingers. Back on Titan, Parker watched as their allies began fading and disappearing one by one, until he realized that he himself was also beginning to fade. Terrified, Parker tearfully clutched onto his mentor as he insisted that he did not want to die. Stark stayed by him and attempted to comfort his scared protege. As Parker collapsed, he muttered a final apology to Stark for failing him before he disintegrated into nothingness, along with half the life in the universe.

Avengers: Endgame

After being snapped away for 5 years, Parker comes back to help the Avengers fight a Thanos from 2014. Peter comes out of a portal created by Doctor Strange to fight for the greater good. Parker gives Tony Stark a hug after not seeing him for 5 years, telling him about what it was like being dusted. Later on in the battle, Stark gains all 6 Infinity Stones, and snaps his own fingers to snap away Thanos and his army. Stark ends up dying while doing this, and Parker is one of the first to run up to him to be by his side while he dies.

Parker attends Tony Stark's funeral with May Parker, mourning the loss of Stark. All of the Avengers are at this Funeral, grieving his loss. Some notable people there are Steve Rogers, Pepper Potts and Nick Fury.

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Following Tony Stark's death and funeral, Peter continued to act as the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, doing his best to live up to what he felt were the giant shoes Stark left for him to fill as his protégé. He hosted fundraisers and charity events for the homeless and did his best to cut down on the returning crime waves in Queens, as well as around the entire rest of the city, including thwarting a robbery by the Manfredi Mob. He became well-known and liked by the residents of the city and was hailed as one of the city's heroes, and was even thought to be taking Iron Man's mantle.

In spite of this, Peter still felt that he was not living up to the posthumous expectations of his mentor and struggled with the post-traumatic stress of being killed in the so-called "Blip" and brought back by what became known as "The Blip," only to have his world shattered by such a hard loss. In an effort to ease his anxiety and stress, Peter signed up for a trans-Atlantic trip to Europe with Ned, MJ, and the rest of his classmates who returned after the five-year time gap. Prior to the trip to Europe, Peter decided to leave both of his suits at home, wanting to just be a normal teenager for the duration of the vacation and not wanting to remind himself of Thanos or Stark's death. Unbeknownst to him, however, his Aunt May packed the traditional Stark suit in his suitcase before he left on the trip. Peter also planned to confess his growing feelings for MJ to her while in Europe. The class first traveled to Venice, Italy, where Peter discovered that May had packed his suit for him. He left the suit in the hotel room, but took the web-shooters just in case. Peter later began to flirt with MJ while on a gondola ride until a large humanoid figure made of water burst out of the canals and began to attack the Rialto Bridge. Peter helped clear his classmates out of the area and then donned his web-shooters and attempted to stop the creature, but was quickly defeated. A man then flew in trailing green smoke behind him and managed to take down the creature with only a little effort before disappearing again. Later on, the class watched a report on the attack on the news at the hotel, revealing the newcomer's name to be Mysterio.

That night, as Peter and Ned were getting ready to go to sleep, Ned was tranquilized and Peter was introduced personally to Nick Fury, who had previously tried to contact him, but had failed as Peter did not want to shoulder the extra weight of whatever assignment Fury had for him. Fury advised Peter to suit up, then took him to a secret base under the canals, where Maria Hill was also waiting. Here, Fury introduced Peter to Mysterio, whose real name was Quentin Beck. Beck revealed he was from a different Earth and that the creature that had attacked during Peter's class trip to the Venetian canals was something called an Elemental, more specifically the Water Elemental; according to Beck, they had arrived after Thanos' first snap tore a hole in the fabric of the universe, allowing the Elementals to slip through and Beck to follow. He also told Peter that the Elementals had killed his family and destroyed his universe's Earth by attacking key points across the world, and that those key points were the ones they were attacking now. Fury then appealed to Peter to team up with Beck to help stop the Elementals, though Peter was reluctant to do so and ultimately rejected his pleas, opting to stay with his class and continue with his field trip. Before he left, however, Fury gifted Peter with a pair of glasses from Stark which were meant for his successor and programmed with the E.D.I.T.H. AI, which could effectively hack into any and all Stark tech.

Unbeknownst to Peter, Fury then covertly altered the trip's itinerary for Prague, where the next Elemental was projected to attack. Along the way, the bus was stopped at a rest stop where a covert agent directed Peter to a different room where another agent was waiting for him with a custom black stealth suit meant to avoid arousing the suspicion Peter's friends and classmates would have if they saw that Spider-Man had somehow followed them to Europe. By giving him this suit, Fury left Peter with no excuse to not help mitigate the threat. While Peter was being given the suit, however, his classmate and rival Brad witnessed and photographed Peter with the agent who he believed to be an escort and plotted to show the picture to MJ to prevent the two from getting together. Peter employed the E.D.I.T.H. glasses to delete the photo, but not before inadvertently almost killing Brad via a Stark drone strike.

Upon the class's arrival in Prague, Fury cajoled Peter into working with Beck to take down the incoming Elemental and the two of them, along with Fury and Hill, came up with a plan of attack. Peter once again tried to back out, leading to Fury scolding him and implying that he wasn't ready to bear Stark's legacy and that he was squandering the potential he was given as a hero. Peter left and hid out atop a building, where Beck visited him and offered him some advice on being a hero. Peter later flirted more with MJ before a show at the opera, but was distracted when Fury contacted him to alert him to the Fire Elemental's arrival. The monster attacked at a carnival and Peter and Mysterio managed to stop it by working together, during which time Beck risked his life trying to take it down. Fury and Hill then invited Peter and Beck to Berlin to discuss assembling a new superhero team. He then told Peter that he would only be welcome to such a conference if Peter was ready to embrace his legacy. This stressed Peter out and when he and Beck went to a bar later to celebrate (though Peter only ordered lemonade), Peter convinced himself and Beck that Stark's message with the E.D.I.T.H. glasses meant that Peter was to choose the next Tony Stark, not to actually be him. Believing Beck to be more worthy of shouldering Stark's legacy, Peter bequeathed him the glasses and returned to his trip. Later on, Peter took a walk in the streets of Prague with MJ and worked up the nerve to confess his feelings for her, but before he could do so, she revealed that she had deduced his true identity as Spider-Man. Though Peter quickly denied this, MJ showed him a piece of debris she found in the rubble of the Fire Elemental attack, which they then discovered was actually a projector which displayed an image of an Elemental they hadn't seen before, the Air Elemental; the two concluded that Beck was a fraud and had been playing everyone the entire time. Panicked by this revelation and realizing his massive mistake in giving Beck the glasses, Peter confirmed that he was, in fact, Spider-Man and warned MJ that she was likely in danger along with Ned. Peter hurried to Berlin to inform Fury of Beck's true nature and told him about the projector he and MJ found, but then found that this Fury was nothing more than an illusion created by Beck, who attacked him and wore him down with illusions; Peter was then hit by a train. Peter survived the impact but was badly injured and fell unconscious shortly after climbing aboard the train car. Peter later woke up in a jail cell somewhere in the Netherlands, but found a way to break out and got in contact with Happy, who picked him up in a Stark jet designed for Peter. Realizing he needed a new costume after the stealth one was destroyed in his battle with Mysterio's illusions, Peter discovered, with Happy's help, a machine left to him by Stark specially designed to manufacture the Spider-Man suits. Peter designed his own new red and black suit while Happy flew him to London, where Beck planned to project the next Elemental, seeking to kill MJ and anyone else who knew his secret. Once they were over London, Peter told Happy to fly high into the sky so Beck wouldn't see him coming, and then dove and parachuted down into the midst of an upgraded Air Elemental, before using upgraded gliding technology to fly through the tempest illusion, constructed from several hundred projectors like the one MJ had found. Peter broke through the illusion using his Spider-Sense (which his friends and aunt referred to as the "Peter-Tingle") and landed on the bridge, rescuing civilians and calling out Beck to fight. After breaking through an illusion using purely his Spider-Sense, Peter regained control of the E.D.I.T.H. AI and used it to order all the projector drones to self-destruct, thereby defeating the so-called Elemental. During the ensuing battle between Beck and Peter, Beck was shot by a misfired gun from one of his own drones and fell to the floor. As he died, he taunted Peter before Peter quickly caught the real Beck's hand and prevented him from shooting Peter in the head; though Beck had been shot, the one on the floor was just another illusion. The real Beck also appeared to die from the gunshot wound, however. Peter and his class returned to New York safely shortly after this, and with MJ now knowing Peter's secret, the two began a relationship together. Peter eventually took MJ swinging through the city, though this made her dizzy and nauseous and she asked to never do it again. Not long after the two had parted ways, however, J. Jonah Jameson, an executive reporter at the Daily Bugle, came on-air with footage of the London battle which Beck took and had doctored to make it appear as though Spider-Man was the one who caused the chaos and ultimately killed Beck. Jameson declared Spider-Man to be a public menace before showing another clip in which Beck publicly revealed Spider-Man's identity to be Peter Parker.

Spider-Man: No Way Home

Peter was swarmed immediately after this by reporters, federal agents, and normal civilians alike, all of whom wanted a piece of him and none of who could tell whether the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man they thought they knew was actually an international masked murderer. Peter scooped up MJ and fled the scene, taking to the high rises and subway tunnels alike to make a beeline back to his and May's apartment, whereupon he attempted in vain to hide the fact that Beck had revealed his identity to everyone with Internet access. He was soon confronted by federal agents of the Department of Damage Control, who arrested him, May, MJ, and Ned and brought them in for questioning, thoroughly believing Peter to be behind Mysterio's murder. While many of these charges had no substantial evidence to them, as was assured to the Parkers by their lawyer, Matt Murdock, it put Peter and his friends on the map in the worst of ways, making them into the subject of controversy in their senior year of high school and causing them all to get rejected from the colleges to which they applied.

Desperate to reverse the effects that Mysterio's scheme had on his life, Peter went to seek the help of Doctor Stephen Strange in hopes that he could use the Time Stone to make it so it had never happened, though Strange, who had been stripped of his title of Sorcerer Supreme in the five years of his absence due to Thanos' plot, lamented that he couldn't do that because he no longer had the stone, since the one belonging to their universe had been destroyed by Thanos and the one used by Bruce Banner and Tony Stark had been returned to its proper place in the timeline. He did, however, have the idea to erase the memories of everyone on the planet that Peter was Spider-Man, to which Peter eagerly agreed, despite Wong's warnings of the dangers of that spell. Nonetheless, Strange took Peter to cast the spell, but after realizing just how universal the effects would be, Peter began to tamper with the spell himself, making it so that MJ would remember their relationship and his being Spider-Man. Unsatisified, he added that Ned and May should remember too, and Happy as well, until finally the spell destablized so much that it opened several rifts in the fabric of the universe, though Strange swiftly stitched these shut and contained the corrupted spell within a magical artifact. After realizing that he hadn't so much as tried to plead his case to the admissions officer for M.I.T., Strange kicked Peter out of the Sanctum Sanctorum. Peter heeded Strange's advice and tracked down the M.I.T. admissions officer who was just leaving town after a New York City admissions mixer and attempted to talk to her about MJ's and Ned's applications, more concerned for them due to their peripheral involvement in his vigilantism than for himself, but was warned by his spider sense of some kind of impending danger. After seeing that the highway ahead was being torn to pieces by some unseen individual, Peter donned his Iron Spider armor and warned the officer to flee before they were attacked by a man with four mechanical arms, who seemed to recognize Spider-Man and demanded that he tell him where his machine was, despite Peter knowing nothing about who he was or what he was talking about. Believing his foe was playing games with him, the man attacked Peter and attempted to kill him, throwing the admissions officer's car off the bridge in the process. Peter saved her from imminent death but was forced to leave her car hanging when his attacker pinned him against the overpass support and tore apart his suit, integrating it into his own arms. He next attempted to run Peter through with a spike on one of his arms, but the suit defended him by using nanites from his mask to protect his torso, revealing his face to his attacker, who bewilderedly stated that he was not, in fact, Peter Parker. Unbeknownst to him, however, the man's integration of Peter's suit had allowed Peter to take control of the limbs and use them to save himself and the admissions officer, bringing them both to safety once more on the bridge. The grateful admissions officer told Peter she would reconsider all three applications before promptly leaving the scene, but Peter's spider-sense warned him of an even greater danger approaching, which manifested in the form of a green-armored man with a creepy elf-like mask approaching on a glider while dropping bombs. The man he had just captured identified him confusedly as "Osborn" before they were transported back to the Sanctum Sanctorum by Strange, where the man with the arms was imprisoned in a magical cell and Peter was startled by a reptilian monster leaping from the shadows of his own cell to try and attack him. Strange explained to Peter that after he had meddled with the memory erasure spell, it had opened a rift in space and time which allowed individuals from across the multiverse who knew about Peter Parker's identity as Spider-Man to leak into their own universe, including the two already in the Sanctum, who identified themselves as Otto Octavius and Curt Connors, respectively. After Strange enchanted one of Peter's gauntlets from his Iron Spider armor to be able to capture the remaining multiversal "visitors," Octavius identified the other man they had seen on the bridge as one Norman Osborn, warning Peter that he was running off into the night to fight ghosts, as the Norman he knew was long dead. Peter, disturbed by this, went to go and capture the other individuals he had been tipped off about with the help of MJ and Ned, operating out of the Sanctum's basement. He encountered a man made of electricity and another of sand. The "Sandman," recognizing Peter as his own version of Spider-Man, showed up to help him, and assisted him in capturing the electrical man after he became apparently hostile. After unmasking himself, however, the Sandman saw that this Peter was not the one he recognized, and became distrustful of and hostile toward his former ally, causing Peter to have to capture him, too. Peter then stayed behind overnight to fix some of the damage his battle with the electrical man had caused, not wanting his reputation to be tarnished further as a vandal.

As dawn broke, Peter was informed that a man matching the description of Norman Osborn had been picked up by the F.E.A.S.T. shelter where May was working. Believing her to be in mortal danger, Peter rushed there, only to find a seemingly entirely normal, however depressed, Osborn being fed by May. Peter took him back to the Sanctum where all the other prisoners were being held, but not before talking with May about the responsibility he had to help them if he can instead of simply sending them home. Back at the Sanctum, the electrical man introduced himself as Max Dillon, while the Sandman called himself Flint Marko. Strange revealed his intention to send all of the multiversal trespassers back to their respective realities, but they pleaded with him, stating that they would all die if they were sent back, as they couldn't remember anything from their worlds after what they perceived to be death of some kind. Strange confirmed that the majority of them die during or after a fight with their respective Spider-Men, sending them into a frenzy as the sorcerer moved to finalize the reversal of his spell which would send them home. Recalling May's words about his responsibility and reluctant to send them home to their fates, Peter stole the artifact Strange was using to contain the corrupted spell, making off with it before being captured and pushed out of his physical form by Strange. After managing to retake control of his body, Peter fled the sorcerer once again, almost being captured multiple times as his pursuer opened the Mirror Dimension around him, until Peter used his knowledge of geometry to manipulate the dimension to his advantage, ensnaring Strange in a trap of his webs and stealing the box and Strange's sling ring before stranding him there.

Peter then took the displaced individuals to Happy Hogan's apartment, where he and May had been staying temporarily, devising various solutions to cure them of their ailments and abilities using Stark Tech entrusted to him after Stark's death. He successfully reverted Doc Ock to Doctor Otto Octavius, giving him control of his mind and arms once more. He moved to do the same for Dillon, Marko, and Osborn, but was thwarted when his spider-sense warned him that Osborn's Goblin persona had taken over. He subdued the would-be attacker with his webs but was then attacked by Dillon, who removed his cure device after being manipulated by the Goblin into believing it would kill him and immediately moved to steal the Stark arc reactor that was powering the device Peter had used to create the cures, blasting Octavius and letting the others flee. Goblin got free and began to attack Peter after May had fled with the remaining cures and a long and painful battle between the two ensued, with the Goblin beating Peter relentlessly until they reached ground floor. Peter attempted to inject him with the cure he had made, but it was flawed and had no effect. The Goblin then told Peter that no good deed went unpunished, proceeding to call in his glider, which struck May and left her helpless on the ground. Though Peter managed to deflect the bomb Goblin threw with the intention of killing her, he could not save her from the wounds she had received from being impaled by the glider, and his aunt died in his arms as he was shot at by armed agents moving to arrest him.

Peter was forced to flee and chose to hide out atop his high school where he could be alone. It was here that MJ and Ned found him and he broke down as they hugged him, stating that he didn't know what to do and that he didn't feel he could save anyone. The two then introduced him to two people they thought he should see, those being his own variants from the universes of the villains he had been attempting to cure, the Peter Parker of Electro's and Lizard's universe and the Peter Parker of Goblin's, Sandman's, and Ock's universe. Both told him that they, too, had lost people they loved; both had lost their Uncle Ben like him and one had lost the love of his life after he failed to save her, and the pain had made them vengeful. In spite of this, however, they had been told the same words May had passed on to Peter before her death, that his great power meant he had a great responsibility to help those who couldn't help themselves. Their words uplifted Peter, and they began to engineer a plan to take down the villains.

The first step was to break into the lab in the high school and use their collective intellect to reengineer the cures Peter had initially created. Here, they were also awed by one of the Parkers' ability to generate web fluid biologically, without need for mechanical web-shooters like the other two. One of the variant Peters also told the other one not to give up on his life as Peter Parker, and that there was more to it then just being Spider-Man, as this Peter had devoted most of his life to being Spider-Man after losing his Gwen Stacy, but had yet to meet his counterpart of MJ like the other two. After this, Ned, who had used Strange's sling ring to bring the other two Parkers there and could now shakily open gateways like Strange could, opened a gateway to the Statue of Liberty. Peter called in to the Daily Bugle to share his role in bringing the multiversal villains to their universe, using the call as a ruse to lure them all to him and his variants at the Statue. This worked incredibly well, with all five villains quickly showing up to steal the box Peter himself had taken from Strange. The three Spider-Men attempted to fight in tandem and cure the villains but found themselves distracted by different villains and getting in each others' ways. After Sandman caused a sandstorm around the Statue, the three regrouped and the two variants confessed that they had never fought in a team before, but Peter reassured them that he had after fighting with the Avengers, and instructed them to, as a group, target one at a time. After this, the three worked together cohesively, swinging off of each other and giving each what the other needed in battle. Like this, they were able to cure Sandman and Lizard before Electro almost killed his counterpart variant of Spider-Man as he had intended to do years prior, but was interrupted by Octavius, who had seemingly returned to being evil after he grabbed and choked the two variant Spider-Men. This was a trick to throw Electro off, however, and allowed Octavius to administer Dillon's cure to him.

It wasn't until then that Goblin returned, bombing the Statue of Liberty and causing it to begin to fall apart. Octavius attempted to stop him himself, but had one of his arms severed before Peter managed to relieve the Goblin of his glider, rendering him flightless on a large piece of debris from the Statue designed to look like Captain America's Shield. Here, Goblin taunted Peter for being too weak to cure him or even send him home to die, to which Peter responded that he just wanted to kill Goblin himself. Peter then savagely beat the man, not relenting until he was crippled on the ground and only then did he pick up the villain's glider in order to impale him on it. He was stopped from going through with this by his variant counterpart from the Goblin's universe, however, who understood what it would do to Peter in the long run. This variant was promptly stabbed in the back by an unrepentant Goblin, who teased Peter once again, this time about being the one to kill May: the Goblin was the one who struck the blow but she was only in a dangerous situation because of her connection to Spider-Man. The third Spider-Man then threw Peter the revised Goblin antiserum, which Peter vengefully stabbed into Goblin's neck, successfully reverting him permanently to a remorseful Norman Osborn.

After this, as the universe around them started to tear open as a result of the spell breaking free of its containment, Peter approached Strange, who had been accidentally freed by Ned and MJ minutes earlier, and told him that if it was the only way to reverse what was happening, then he should complete the spell as he had intended to the first time. Strange refused, warning Peter that everyone would forget about him being Spider-Man, but that they would also forget who Peter Parker was to them, what he meant to them, and what they had been through together. His relationship with MJ would be erased, as would his friendship with Ned, his enrollment in school, and his relationship to the Avengers, including Strange. Peter acknowledged this, stating that it was what had to be done, and ordered Strange to complete the spell. Strange advised him to say his goodbyes while he could, and Peter did so, vowing to MJ and Ned that he would find them again and remind them of what they had all been through together, before kissing MJ goodbye and doing one final secret handshake with Ned. From here, he returned to the city, watching as Octavius, Osborn, Marko, Dillon, Connors, and the two other Parkers returned to their universes and the breaches in reality were closed.

Sometime shortly thereafter, Peter, his identity as Spider-Man a secret once more, sought out MJ in the coffee shop and diner where she worked, only for her to stare right through him as another random customer and greet Ned with a smile as he walked in. Despite his plans and promise to remind the two of who he was, after seeing their happiness and planning to go to M.I.T. without his problems in their lives, he decided against it, and ordered a coffee instead, wishing them well and leaving. He visited May's grave and promised to carry on doing what she had taught him to do, and also held a brief conversation with Happy, who was also visting the grave site but was oblivious to who Peter was. He began renting out a cramped and dingy studio apartment, where he moved in with a fresh lease on life, planning to finish out his GED, since his high school transcript had been erased, and readying himself to resume life as Spider-Man with an all-new red and blue suit.

Personality

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. 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.

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.

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 and filmic expertise (he is an avid movie watcher as well). He frequently annoys his enemies with fast-talking humor and quipping, prompting members of both Captain America's faction.

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.

Secret Identity

Spider-Man did almost to keep his identity a closely guarded secret. However, there were a number of individuals to whom he had either willingly revealed his identity to or whom had discovered it for themselves. Among the most prominent ones are Tony Stark, Happy Hogan, Ned Leeds, Adrian Toomes, May Parker, Stephen Strange, and Michelle Jones are the only people to know Spider-Man's secret identity. The end credits scene of Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that Spider-Man's Identity has been revealed to the world by Mysterio.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Artificially Enhanced Physiology: Peter Parker gained several spider-like abilities due to the bite of a genetically-altered spider. The complex mutagenic enzymes in the spider's blood that were transferred at the time of the bite triggered numerous body-wide mutagenic changes within Parker, granting him superhuman strength, speed, toughened flesh, and a spider-sense. However, due to his inexperience, he doesn't have full control of his powers and is still discovering them, including his spider-sense.

  • Superhuman Strength: Spider-Man possesses the proportionate strength of a spider. His strength enables him to lift more than the weight of a car, even at greater speeds. He was also able to catch and support a collapsing jet bridge and break through hard glass with a few blows. Spider-Man was ultimately able to lift the considerable amount of concrete roof that Vulture had collapsed on top of him, though doing so painfully strained him. During the Black Order's arrival in New York, Peter was able to catch Cull Obsidian's hammer moments before it struck Iron Man. His strength is sufficient enough to stagger Thanos.
  • Superhuman Speed: Spider-Man can move at greater speeds than an ordinary human, making him adept at dodging quick attacks.
  • Superhuman Durability: Spider-Man possesses denser bones and toughened flesh that allows him to survive great impacts. Spider-Man has endured attacks from other enhanced individuals without sustaining any lasting damage. He was also unaffected when he fell from height of several stories. Moreover, Spider-Man survived being dragged from a speeding van and enduring hits from garbage bins and stacks of bricks, as well as Vulture collapsing a considerable portion of a concrete roof on top of him, he later survives a plane crash and falls from the inside of the Washington Monument while only being incapacitated. While Spider-Man followed Ebony Maw as he chased after Doctor Strange and the Time Stone, Peter was unfazed by the various objects flung at him by Maw, even shaking off a direct collision with a road sign, resuming his pursuit. Peter was even able to withstand a blow from the tremendously strong Thanos while wearing the Iron Spider Armor.
  • Superhuman Agility: Spider-Man is exceptionally agile and fast, capable of swinging around on thin webbing, flipping, and jumping very high distances without any 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 any enhanced individuals attacks. Spider-Man's sense of balance is similar to most arachnid species, allowing him to perform complex acrobatics. He is able to adjust his position by instinct, enabling him to balance himself on a string of web, do a front flip and land on it.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Spider-Man's reaction time and coordination is significantly enhanced, having his brain respond to stimuli at an accelerated rate. Spider-Man can effectively dodge and counter incoming attacks in combat. He is also able to catch individuals or objects moving at high speeds even without looking.
  • Superhuman Stamina: Spider-Man is able to exert himself into physical activity much longer than normal humans, without tiring.
  • Enhanced Senses: Peter describes his heightened senses as being "dialed to eleven." Due to his enhanced sense of sight, Spider-Man had to restrict this ability with shutter eye lenses, in order to not let it handicap him during combat.
    • 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, as there is "too much input."
    • Spider-Sense (Peter Tingle): Spider-Man has a pronounced survival instinct which warns him of impending danger. This awareness functions on a subconscious level, thus alerting Spider-Man of dangers he cannot readily notice at first, including projectiles aimed at him from a blind spot. Spider-Man can sense a bench that Winter Soldier had hurled at him and Spider-Man sensed someone coming his way and, without looking, incapacitated him with a web grenade while the Staten Island Ferry was split in half. Later, he was also able to dodge Vulture's Exo-Suit at full speed, effectively maneuvering in close quarters at a high rate of speed. He was able to sense the spaceship landing in New York City, despite being miles away from the site. His senses had also warned him of his impending demise at the hands of Thanos. In Spider-Man: Far From Home this is officially named the "Peter Tingle".
  • Wall-Crawling: Spider-Man is able to adhere to surfaces like a spider, enabling him to crawl on walls or ceilings with ease. This ability allows him to stick to any surface when willing himself to, as physical contact with surfaces can creates a locking connection necessary to support his body, even when he is inverted above the ground. He has also stated that he doesn't use any adhesive device to achieve this.
  • Regenerative Healing Factor: Spider-Man's increased metabolism allows him to rapidly heal from injuries more extensively than normal humans. He was able to rapidly heal a black eye and other scars from fighting the Vulture in a matter of hours.

Abilities

  • Genius-Level Intellect: Peter is academically gifted in science, specifically in chemistry, physics, and engineering. He is smart enough to create a chemical compound that is used as webbing and constructed his working artificial web-shooters. In addition, he was a valued member of the academic decathlon team, with Liz Toomes claiming that Peter was its most intelligent member. His intellect was praised by Tony Stark himself, who was impressed with his webbing he made.
  • Expert Scientist and Engineer: Peter Parker has displayed in various knowledge of science. He easily sorted out a gravity equation during one class in school, by taking one look at the board, identified Falcon's wings being made from carbon fiber and made a fluid similar to a spider's web. He is also an expert of inventing own computers taken from trash, his first Spider-Man suit, first pair of web-shooters and his upgraded red and black suit.
  • Skilled Tactician: Peter draws from pop culture from 80s films and using the laws of physics to make strategies in taking down his enemies during fights.
  • Master Acrobat: Due to his superhuman physical abilities, Peter is a very skilled acrobat and gymnast. He easily surpasses normal acrobats and is able to pre-form somersaults, flips, spins, cartwheels, etc. Hence, he was able to quickly shoot strings of webbing at the strongest points of the Staten Island Ferry together, using his web-shooters and his own enhanced-agility, succeeding his active maneuvers to keep it together.
  • Skilled Combatant: Using a mixture of his superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, equilibrium, spider-sense, and web-shooters, Peter is able to utilize a devastating acrobatic fighting style that makes him a formidable opponent.
  • Multilingualism: Peter speaks his native English and Spanish, thanks to studying in school with success. As well as some Italian, when he talked to a store owner at a Bodega.

Equipment

  • Web-Shooters: Spider-Man created mechanical web-shooters that attach to his wrists and utilize them in various ways, such as using them to immobilize or ensnare his enemies and web swinging. His new pair of web-shooters is supplied with technological improvements and a few new features The upgraded web-shooters also comes with selective web types and a laser targeting system for accuracy.
  • Spider-Man Suit: Spider-Man owns two suits, the first suit was made by Peter himself which contains his homemade web-shooters and black goggles, while his second suit is designed by Tony Stark to help focus his powers.
