Background

Peter Parker is the son of Richard and Mary Parker. His parents were undercover agents for the agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D. However, they were killed on one of their missions. Richard's brother, Ben (along with his wife May) helped to raise Peter. Peter was an excellent student and excelled in school. May and Ben were not rich and had to scrape together enough money to get Peter a microscope. Peter was a very shy boy and was often picked on by Flash Thompson (the star quarterback at Midtown High). Thompson often called him "Puny Parker".

One day Peter was attending a science experiment. A tiny spider was accidentally exposed to radiation. It bit Peter before it died. Peter felt strange after the bite and was almost hit by a car. However, he felt a strange sensation and was able to jump and cling to a nearby building. Peter soon designed a pair of web shooters and a flashy costume. He set out in the entertainment world as the Amazing Spider-Man. Peter's ego swelled as his success continued to rise. One night a thief ran by him and he did nothing to stop him. Peter returned home to learn that his Uncle Ben was killed by a burglar. Peter went out as Spider-Man to find the burglar. When he caught him he discovered it was the same man he had let go earlier. It was at this time that Peter learned "With great power comes great responsibility".

A lot has happened to Peter since that spider bit him. He went to college at E.S.U. and fell in love with Gwen Stacey. She was later killed by Norman Osborn. Peter and Flash actually became good friends, and Peter eventually married Mary Jane Watson. He also had to witness the death of his best friend Harry Osborn who was killed by the experimental Goblin formula. However, one of Peter's most difficult times came when his "parents" came back. They were actually androids built by the Chameleon to learn Spider-Man's secret identity. This helped to put Peter over the edge. He began to withdraw from his life. He wanted to live only as "The Spider". Peter's Aunt May had a stroke at this same time, and his clone returned. Ben Reilly and Mary Jane helped bring Peter back from the edge. However, Peter then learned that he was the clone. He actually sided with the Jackal before he realized he was just as much as a human as anyone else.

Peter has gone through a lot. He learned that Norman Osborn was alive and that Ben was really the clone. Norman has to be Peter's greatest enemy. He was able to frame Spider-Man causing the whole Identity Crisis storyline. Peter was eventually able to clear himself, once again become Spider-Man, and he defeated Osborn. However, we don't know if that was the last we will see of the Green Goblin.

Powers and Abilities
Strength level: Super-Human

Powers: Peter has the proportionate strength of a spider. He is able to lift 10 tons. Heck he was even able to lift up the entire Daily Bugle building. He has the ability to cling to walls and most surfaces. He is extremely agile and fast which make him a difficult target to hit. However, one of his most important powers is his "spider sense". This sixth sense warns him of any approaching danger. This allows Peter to use his other senses for offensive purposes. His spider sense allows him to even avoid creaky floors. He can navigate through the busy City Room at the Daily Bugle without bumping into other people. Peter's spider tracers work on the same frequency as his spider sense.

Abilities: He is a very good tactical fighter. He has scientific knowledge that aids him frequently.

Equipment: I will be designing a page for his equipment
Weapons: None

Limitations: Spider-Man has learned that with great power comes great responsibility. This can be a hindrance at times because he feels guilty over too many things.
