Hero Overview

I'd rather just stay on the ground for a little while. Friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Somebody's got to look out for the little guy, right?
~ Peter to Tony, giving his reason for not accepting his invitation to join the Avengers.
You can't be a friendly neighborhood Spider-Man if there's no neighborhood.
~ Spider-Man to Iron Man during the Infinity War.
Everywhere I go, I see his face. And the whole world is asking who's gonna be the next Iron Man. I don't know if that's me, Happy. I'm not Iron Man.
~ Spider-Man to Happy Hogan.
Truth is... that this is all my fault. I accidentally brought those dangerous people here. And if those people are watching... just know that I really did try to help you. I mean, I could've killed you. At any given moment, but I didn't. Because my Aunt May taught me that everyone deserves a second chance.
~ Spider-Man.

Peter Benjamin Parker (born August 10, 2001), also known as Spider-Man, is one of the protagonists of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and a cameo character in Sony's Spider-Man Universe.

He is May Parker's nephew, Ned Leeds' former best friend, Michelle 'MJ' Jones' former boyfriend, Flash Thompson and Brad Davis' former enemy and rival, and a former student at Midtown School of Science and Technology.

He is a super-enhanced being with a high intellect and is skilled in costumed superhero while keeping the persona of being a nerdy teenager. He acts under the alias of Spider-Man in order to protect New York City from its criminal underworld. He was recruited by Iron Man to help him and his group of Avengers defeat Captain America's group of Avengers during the Civil War that erupted between the two factions due to their differing views on the Sokovia Accords.

Following the events of the Civil War, Peter returned to his normal life while awaiting for Iron Man to call him for his next mission to prove himself. He would start to investigate Adrian Toomes and his crew as they tried to sell Chitauri weaponry on the black market, but found himself intertwined due to his romantic feelings for Adrian's daughter Liz. Peter proved his heroism by stopping Vulture without the use of the Stark suit, but would reject Tony's offer to become an official member of the Avengers. However, Parker would join the team when Thanos started his quest to obtain the Infinity Stones to wipe out half of the universe. The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy failed to stop Thanos, which resulted in Peter and half of the universe being turned into dust. In 2023, Peter and the others were resurrected by the Hulk, and assisted his allies in stopping Thanos from undoing the blip.

After the death of his mentor and friend Iron Man, he feels the burden to be the one he chose as a pupil and is unsure if he will be the one to carry on his legacy. Wanting to just have a normal time while on a trip with his classmates, Peter returns to his secret identity to help "Nick Fury" stop the Elementals. During this time, Peter becomes friend with Quentin Beck, but later learns that the latter is behind the Elementals and tricked him into getting Stark's glasses to weaponize them. After being inspired again by Happy Hogan, Peter created a new suit and stopped Mysterio, who secretly created footage to reveal Peter's secret identity to the public.

After Mysterio outed his secret identity and framed him as the mastermind behind the drone attack, Peter eventually asked Doctor Strange to erase everyone's memories, with the side effect of his loved ones also forgetting. After Peter accidentally interferes with the spell, two alternate versions of him and the various villains they dealt with come into his world. After teaming up with the other Spider-Men and curing each villain of their powers and making amends with them, Doctor Strange fixes the spell and the entire world forgets not just that Peter Parker was Spider-Man, but who Peter Parker is entirely, including MJ and Ned. After seeing MJ's injuries and that she and Ned had both been accepted into MIT, Peter reneges on his promise to give them back their memories of him, creates a new suit from scratch and goes back to his independent heroics as he did before meeting Iron Man.


In the MCU, Peter serves as a minor character in Iron Man 2, a major character in Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame; and the titular protagonist of his first Spider-Man trilogy, consisting of Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home and Spider-Man: No Way Home. He is set to return as the titular protagonist of both the upcoming animated prequel series Spider-Man: Freshman Year and his second trilogy.

In the SSU, he serves as a cameo character in Venom: Let There Be Carnage and a mentioned character in Morbius. A variant of him from another universe appears as the protagonist of "What If... Zombies?!", the fifth episode of the 2021 Disney+ animated series, What If...?.


As a teenager, he is portrayed by Tom Holland, who also played Arvin Russell in The Devil All the Time, Cherry in the 2021 film of the same name, Todd Hewitt in Chaos Walking, and Nathan Drake in Uncharted, and voiced Walter Beckett in Spies in Disguise, Jip in Dolittle, and Ian Lightfoot in Onward.

As a young child in Iron Man 2, he is portrayed by Max Favreau.

In What If... Zombies!?, he is voiced by Hudson Thames.

In the Japanese dubbed version, he was voiced by Junya Enoki, who also voiced Yuji Itadori from Jujutsu Kaisen series and Pannacotta Fugo from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.


You got heart, kid.
~ Captain America to Spider-Man during the clash.

Peter Parker is shown to be a loyal, friendly, highly intelligent, but shy, and socially awkward 17-year-old teenage superhero. Since the start of his superhero career, Peter kept his Spider-Man identity a secret from the world and to avoid joining school bands and football teams in an attempt to protect his powers and identity. Since he was offered to join the Avengers Civil War by Tony Stark / Iron Man, Peter became eager and excited to become an Avenger but was told he was not ready yet.

After the Avengers Civil War, Peter still became eager to become an official member of the Avengers and continued his crime-fighting duties as Spider-Man in his upgraded suit given to him by his mentor and ally. He came into conflict against Adrian Toomes / Vulture (who became his arch-enemy), who was attempting to sell Avengers equipment on the black market and he attempted to stop him in order to prove to become an Avenger.

Since Peter was a social outcast in his youth before he became Spider-Man, he works as a lone, individualistic superhero and he finds it hard when he tries to fit in with the other members of Iron Man's faction of Avengers who might ask of how old he is.

After his successful mission of defeating the Vulture and his crew from stealing Avengers equipment, Peter realized that he needs to learn a lot more before becoming an official Avenger which Tony Stark applauded. Peter as Spider-Man vowed to never take any reckless courses of actions since the Skirmish on the Staten Island Ferry incident.

Peter Parker can also be stubborn and headstrong at times, which can include disobeying Tony Stark (with good reason, however, because Tony did not listen to Peter as closely as he should have in regards to dealing with Vulture, else Peter wouldn't have felt the need to take maters into his own hands, if recklessly). However, Peter is a good boy and a big-hearted and forgiving person, risking his life to save Vulture, despite the latter attempting to kill him.

Peter Parker / Spider-Man is a very brave and righteous hero as he saves numerous citizens in Queens, New York and stopping the super villain Vulture from committing many crimes. He is also adept at making incredibly annoying jokes which sometimes annoys or irritates his allies and enemies.

But should any of his loved ones get hurt or killed by his enemies, as per his Aunt May when she was killed by Green Goblin, Peter will drop his benevolence towards the perpetrators and instead channel his vengeful anger on them. He held a strong resentment towards the Goblin ever since, vocally expressing his desire to kill him and was reluctant to let his Earth-96283 counterpart devise a cure to spare the man trapped inside the Goblin, Norman Osborn. This bitterness culminated in his final confrontation with the Goblin, in which Peter viciously pummeled him to the brink of death. If not for the efforts of his Earth-96283 and Earth-120703 counterparts to convince him otherwise, Peter would've definitely finished the Goblin off through a painful death.

Powers and Abilities


Peter Parker: I'm sick of him treating me like a kid all the time! It's not cool!
Ned Leeds: But you are a kid.
Peter Parker: Yeah, a kid who can stop a bus with his bare hands!
~ Peter Parker and Ned Leeds

Spider Physiology: After Peter Parker was bitten by a genetically altered spider, he has gained the proportionate powers of a spider. With his newfound heightened abilities, Parker deliberately holds back from participating in sports, such as football due to having a superhuman advantage. Despite his restrictions, Parker is still athletic and even received commendation from Coach Wilson for his participation in Captain America's Fitness Challenge.

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.

  • 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, break through a bulletproof glass window with only a few blows, lifting up rows of school lockers, as well as to support the weight of a jet bridge that weighs about 30 tons, and was even able to lift a considerable portion of concrete roof that Vulture had collapsed on top of him, though both prowess's visibly strained him painfully. 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, though he was outmatched and subdued swiftly when facing the Mad Titan on his own. He also used Green Goblin's speeding glider in order to kill him despite its mass, and would have easily gone through with it.
  • Superhuman Durability: Spider-Man's body is inhumanly 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 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 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, with only minor injuries. Peter was even able to withstand a blow from the tremendously strong Thanos while wearing the Iron Spider Armor. However, according to Karen, even Spider-Man would most likely not survive a fall from the top of Washington Monument. He later survived a plane crash and a fall from the inside of an elevator shaft while only being incapacitated, which he recovered from faster than a human would. While Spider-Man followed Ebony Maw's chase for 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. Similarly, Mysterio's attempt to kill him with a train is only foiled due to his massive durability.
  • Superhuman Speed: Spider-Man can move and react at speeds greater than that of any ordinary human, making him adept at dodging. During the Avengers Civil War, Spider-Man was able to outrun the likes of Black Widow. Moreover, he successfully dodged attacks from Falcon, the Winter Soldier, and Scarlet Witch. In the battle against Thanos on Titan during Infinity War, he proved fast enough to dodge and rescue the unconscious Guardians of the Galaxy from meteors, which were traveling at speeds of over Mach 2000.
  • Superhuman Stamina: With an improved increased stamina, Spider-Man is able to perform physical activities for a longer period without tiring.
  • Superhuman Agility: Spider-Man is super-humanly agile, capable of swinging around on thin spider-webbing and jumping great distances and heights 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.
  • Superhuman Equilibrium: Spider-Man possesses the ability to achieve a state of perfect equilibrium in any position imaginable. He is able to adjust his position by instinct, which enabled him to balance on a string of web and perform a somersault, as well as catch a web cartridge while standing on the railing of a fire escape. Virtually, he can balance himself on any object, no matter how small or narrow.
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

  • Superhuman Senses: Spider-Man's senses are greatly enhanced, with him describing them as being "dialed to eleven". Hence, Peter is able to sense potentially dangerous things shortly before they occur. For example, if 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, as there is "too much input".
    • Spider-Sense: Spider-Man's brain intakes and responds to stimuli at an accelerated rate, alerting him to dangers around him as a sixth sense. This awareness functions on a subconscious level, thus alerting Spider-Man of dangers he cannot readily notice at first, allowing him to effectively dodge and counter incoming attacks in combat, including projectiles aimed at him even from a blind spot. Peter was able to catch the small cartridge of web fluid tossed to him by Tony Stark, even though he was facing away from him. He later sensed the bench that Winter Soldier had hurled at him while he fought Falcon. During the Ambush at the Staten Island Ferry, he sensed someone coming his way and, without looking, incapacitated him with a web grenade. 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. However, as his enhanced reflexes directly correspond to his sensory input, he can be rendered vulnerable to attacks if his senses are overloaded, such as during his final fight with Vulture. Spider-Man also, despite his incredible reflexes, can be caught by surprise should he allow himself to get distracted, as seen when he was ensnared by Redwing's grapple line due to his excitement during the Clash of the Avengers. While on a bus during a field trip, Parker was able to sense Ebony Maw's Q-Ship descending on New York City, despite being miles away from the site. After crash-landing the Q-Ship on Titan, Spider-Man was able to sense a threat was going to happen before warning Iron Man and Doctor Strange. His senses had also warned him of his impending demise at the hands of Thanos moments before he began to fade away.
  • Adhesive Wall-Sticking: Spider-Man can adhere to walls, ceilings, and other surfaces in order to scale them and has stated that he does not use any adhesive gloves or fabrics to do it. This ability allows him to stick to 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.
  • Rapid Self-Regeneration: Spider-Man's increased metabolism gives him a faster and more extensive regeneration rate than normal humans. He rapidly healed from a black eye from Giant-Man. After suffering multiple wounds from his fight with the Vulture, Peter's scars were fully healed in a matter of hours.


Peter, you don't need to study. You're, like, the smartest guy I've ever met.
~ Liz Toomes

  • Genius-Level Intellect: 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 (the sophistication of which even impressed Tony Stark) and constructed his own web-shooters, further proven when he was able to quickly solve a physics problem by just taking a glance at the board and deduced the composition of Falcon's wings based on their relationship between rigidity and flexibility, despite only witnessing their usage in a short span of time. Parker is also well-read and good at math, claiming to have "nailed" an algebra test the day Stark recruited him. Peter also deduced the Mirror Dimension's fractal dimensional property to a level Strange couldn't, using it to trap him and restrain him so that he can cure the multiversal visitors without interference. 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. His teammates were devastated when he briefly quit his position on the team, but were overjoyed when he returned and immediately and happily welcomed him back, including Roger Harrington, a true testament to his intelligence.
  • Expert Tactician: Parker draws from pop culture when formulating strategies, 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. In similar fashion, Peter devised a plan to rescue Doctor Strange from Ebony Maw by ejecting him out of his Q-Ship through a hull breach. He also uses the laws of physics to his advantage, such as when he used the lift from a SWAT team's helicopter blades to his advantage to get enough momentum to break a window in order to save his classmates. 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. He became more skilled at leading a team when Peter and his variants battled Green Goblin and the other multiversal villains planning to destroy the Runes of Kauf-Kaul.
  • Investigator: Parker was able to effectively utilize his suit's video archives and Karen's access to law enforcement databases to generate suspects to interrogate and locate Vulture and his illegal weapons trade, notably producing the identity Aaron Davis.
May Parker: I hope you got a few good licks in.
Peter Parker: Yeah, I got quite a few in, actually.
~ May Parker and Peter Parker.

  • Hand-to-Hand Combat Proficiency: After fighting crime for six months, Peter's combat style developed into a somewhat instinctive and improvised collection of techniques that emphasizes the use of his superhuman strength, speed, agility, and Web-Shooters. Hence, Peter uses quick, powerful attacks and agile movements while firing his 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, two military-trained hand-to-hand combatants, as well as temporarily hold his own against the far more experienced Captain America; according to Iron Man however, Steve was holding back during that fight and could have knocked out Peter easily. Peter also fought against Vulture despite the latter repeatedly besting him in combat. Because of his limited experience, Peter was easily subdued by the Shocker during their brawl due to him heavily relying on his Web-Shooters for offensive attacks. Later on, Peter had somewhat improved his skills but remained vastly outclassed by experienced fighters, as when he and his allies fought the Guardians of the Galaxy and later when he briefly fought Thanos. While he was able to briefly duel the highly skilled Star-Lord, he was quickly subdued. Due to his predictable combat style during the Battle of Titan, Thanos defeated Spider-Man in moments after recognizing Parker's attack pattern.
  • Master Acrobat: Due to his superhuman agility, Spider-Man can perform acrobatic and gymnastic feats, such as flips, with little effort. Hence, he was able to accurately shoot a string of webbing at Captain America's Shield, then caught it mid-air and land on a vehicle. While wearing the Iron Spider Armor, Peter's coordination is greatly enhanced, allowing him to easily navigate throughout the environment of Titan, rescuing Mantis, Star-Lord, and Drax mid-air while swinging through the obstacles affected by the planet's gravitational distortions. Spider-Man later used Mysterio's own drones to fight against them, swinging to city-wide blocks without any discomfort.
  • Master 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 simultaneously ensnaring Captain America's hands and strip him of his shield, mid-air, executing it all at high speed. He was also able to precisely shoot a Spider-Tracer onto Herman Schultz's foot across a classroom, and ensnare and latch onto Vulture's Exo-Suit with little effort despite the rig moving at incredible speeds at times, notably during the Hijacking of the Stark Cargo Plane. Spider-Man also used Mysterio's energy core to use a makeshift hammer which he used to reasonably aim at a mass of his drones about to attack the city, taking out most of them.


  • Inexperience: Despite all his achievements and prowess, he is still an inexperienced young teen who has yet a lot to learn, having not even a year of being Spider-Man under his belt or real training neither with his new upgrades or challenges. Due to his childishness, Peter doesn't usually takes things seriously and more often than not has been surpassed by more experienced characters, heroes and villains alike, which almost results in his death or the death of his allies and innocent people.
  • Limited Combat Knowledge: While a cunning and proficient fighter in his own, Peter has no real training in any form of combat, and it's likely he never was in a fight before getting his powers. While he was able to defeat Falcon and Winter Soldier, he only succeeded thanks to combining his physical prowess to his just upgraded suit and gadgets. This was also helped by the fact he took the two combatants by surprise (and yet he was taken by surprise and threw out a window by one of Falcon's gadgets) as well as being able to stand up to Captain America only by using Tony's advice before battle, being defeated anyway (and as Tony reveals, Steve was holding back that time, meaning he never stood a chance against the enhanced soldier). Peter seems to need to rely on his powers, intellect, gadgets and environment to win his battles, having little to not real skill outside his spider-physiology. This weakness is reduced more and more with each passing movie, with Peter managing to destroy Mysterio's heavily-armed drones with his Spider-Sense, and him cornering and almost killing the similarly-enhanced Green Goblin single-handedly.

  • His spider sense is called "Peter Tingle".
  • In Spider-Man No Way Home, when Peter was separated from his physical form by Doctor Strange while trying to keep him away from the Machina de Kadavus in order to save the other villains from their fates, there are faint squiggly lines moving around his head. This is a reference to the Spider-Sense lines used in the comics.
    • This also explains how is body was able to move and keep the box away from Strange despite having been separated from it.
  • Upon his first appearance in the universe, Peter was played by Jon Favreau's son, Max Favreau, as a child in Iron Man 2.
  • Tom Holland is one of the few British actors to play one of the Marvel characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is also one of the few heroes and characters in MCU not to have his origin story depicted, but only mentioning it.
  • This is the first incarnation of Spider-Man to become an official member of the Avengers.
  • Tom Holland is the youngest actor to play Peter Parker/Spider-Man at the age of 21 (Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield were 27 and 29 at the time of their respective debut films), though Peter is 15 in Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming.
  • Sam Raimi and Marc Webb's Spider-Man actors Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield praised Tom Holland's performance as Garfield announced that he was glad to be a "fan again".
  • Spidey-Senses are mentioned in the song Legendz, which plays during the Cloak & Dagger episode, Level Up.
  • Spider-Man is one of the three main protagonists who are able to defeat the main antagonist without assistance in the MCU, the others being the Hulk and Ant-Man in both of their titular films. So far, he has been the only one to do it more than once.
  • Asa Butterfield, Charlie Rowe, Nat Wolff, Liam James, and Timothee Chalamet were considered for the role of Spider-Man, with Asa Butterfield and Charlie Rowe being in the top three choices alongside Holland. Rowe was the top contender before Holland was chosen.
  • Much like Black Panther, Spider-Man was brought into the MCU during Captain America: Civil War to help balance out the Avenger factions due to the absence of Thor and Hulk at the time.
  • It is thanks to Tom Holland that Sony and Disney were able to come to an agreement to keep Spider-Man in the MCU.
  • It has been announced that there will be another Spider-Man film trilogy that takes place during Peter's time in college. This could mean that Peter was able to get his GED sometime after Spider-Man: No Way Home.
    • This is also the first live action iteration of Spider-Man to star in more than three movies.
  • Unbeknowst to Peter, he is not aware that SSU Venom was one of the Multiversal Visitors that was transported in his universe. However, since a little piece of the symbiote was left in a bar, it is possible that Peter will cross paths with it in the future, given that the symbiote is presumably trying to find him.
    • There has been official concept art of Peter wearing the black suit, so it is possible that he will bond with the symbiote in a future Spider-Man film.
  • When talking about what it's like to wear the Spider-Man suit, Tom comments, "It doesn’t keep you warm at all and, it makes you look small in all the areas you don’t want to look small! It is the same as last time and once again I asked for a zip and there isn’t one!”
