Who is Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man?
Peter Parker is an orphaned schoolboy who lives with his Aunt May. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, he acquired amazing spider-like abilities. As Spider-Man, he uses these powers to help others – while struggling with more familiar teenage issues as his ordinary self.
With lasting respect for the high-tech heroics of Iron Man (Tony Stark), Spider-Man developed a friendship with the billionaire inventor – though the teenager’s rebellious nature sometimes causes friction between the pair. Spider-Man makes periodic appearances with his fellow superheroes, but he prefers to fight crime solo on the streets of his own neighbourhood. Here he encounters a number of supervillains and thugs.
What are Spider-Man’s Powers?
Spider-Man’s powers include:
- super spider strength
- super spider endurance
- an ability to leap around with spider agility and grip to almost any surface.
With his wrist-worn web-shooters, Spider-Man can fire out synthetic, high-strength web. He uses it to swing from building to building, immobilise his opponents, and rescue people.
