"I forgot all about that thing. It was your dad's."
―Ben Parker[src]

Benjamin "Ben" Parker was Peter Parker's uncle and May Parker's husband.


The Amazing Spider-Man

When Richard Parker vanished mysteriously, Ben and his wife May agreed to look after Peter. He was told by Peter that he was "a great dad," even though he sometimes doubts his parenting skills. He later tries to talk to Peter, after a heated argument, but instead finds an armed robber who gets into a scuffle with him, ending in Ben being shot and killed instantly.

  • Ben's famous quote, "With great power, comes great responsibility," is actually never said in The Amazing Spider-Man. However, at one point, Ben angrily lectures Peter about how his father believed in principles and what good men should do; this is clearly supposed to mean the same thing. The phrase is later used in an alternate ending of The Amazing Spider-Man 2by Richard Parker.
