"Y-yeah."
"You're gonna be fine. I can help you. If you stick around, I could show you the ropes."
"Yeah, sure."
"Cool. Just uh, just need to destroy this big machine real quick before the space-time continuum collapses. Don't move.

Biography

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

"Alright, let's do this one last time. My name is Peter Parker. I was bitten by a radioactive spider, and for 10 years, I've been the one and only...Spider-Man. I'm pretty sure you know the rest: I saved a bunch of people, fell in love, saved the city, and then I saved the city again, and again, and again, and again. And I did uh, I did this. We don't really talk about this. Look, I'm a comic book, I'm a cereal,did a Christmas album, I have an excellent theme song, and a so-so Popsicle. I mean, I've looked worse. But after everything, I still LOVE being Spider-Man. I mean who wouldn't? So no matter how many hits I take, I always find a way to come back. Because the only thing standing between this city and Oblivion, is me. There's only one Spider-Man. And you're looking at him."
―Peter Parker
Bitten by a radioactive spider at age 15, Peter Parker became the costumed superhero Spider-Man following the death of his Uncle Ben. Operating as Spider-Man for 10 years (with assistance from his Aunt May) Peter met and married Mary Jane Watson. He also came into conflict with numerous villains such as Doctor Octopus, Scorpion, Tombstone, Green Goblin and crime boss Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin.

However, things would change when Kingpin eventually had a machine called the Super-Collider commissioned from the scientific corporation Alchemax, designed and constructed by Dr. Olivia Octavius, intending to open a portal to another dimension to find counterparts of his deceased wife and son. However, Spider-Man found out about this and attempted to stop his plans. He engaged his nemesis Norman Osborn, aka the Green Goblin somewhere in the bunker the Collider was located. Attempting to reason with the Goblin about the danger the Collider posed, he discovered and rescued a young boy named Miles Morales, who had stumbled upon the battle, and discovered Miles had similar powers through their shared spider-sense. He instructed Miles to keep out of harm's way, and even offered to teach him about his powers, but was ambushed by the Prowler, whom he fought across the Collider's chamber.

Eventually, the Goblin attacked again as the Collider activated and created a dimensional rift. Goblin attempted to kill Spider-Man by placing him in the colliding energy beams, and through his unique dimensional signature, ended up causing a powerful dimensional disruption that ended up drawing in inter-dimensional counterparts of him into his universe, namely two older versions of himself, alongside Peni Parker, Gwen Stacy, and Peter Porker. The resulting explosion heavily damaged the Collider, killing Osborn under it's wreckage and badly injuring Spider-Man. Miles found Peter's wounded form, to which the dying hero gave him a flashdrive with software to disable and destroy the Collider, instructing Miles to do so and keep safe from the Kingpin, falsely assuring the boy he'd be safe.

He is confronted by Fisk, and weakly banters with him, but also attempts to reason with his nemesis, telling him that trying to bring back Vanessa and Richard was not worth potentially destroying New York. Unfortunately, the mention of them enrages Kingpin into dealing a fatal blow to Peter, murdering him. He orders Prowler to dispose of the hero's body, and upon spotting an obscured Miles, also orders his death. Peter's death is later discovered and is reported throughout New York, shocking the citizens with their beloved hero's tragic demise. A speech is later held by his distraught wife Mary Jane, who states that Peter humbly believed anyone could be Spider-Man, merely saying he was just the boy who was bitten by the spider.

Immensely guilty and bound by his promise to destroy the Collider and stop Fisk's scheme, Miles purchased a cheap Spider-Man Halloween costume in an effort to carry on Peter's place as Spider-Man.

Character traits

Peter was a man who loved being Spider-Man. Despite being injured and knocked down constantly, he declared that he loved helping people as Spider-Man. According to his wife at his funeral, he was also very humbled and once told Mary Jane that anyone could be Spider-Man.

Appearances/Voice Actors

Behind the scenes

  • Chris Pine voices the Spider-Man of Miles' universe, whose death inspires Miles to become Spider-Man. This version of Parker was intended to be "as competent a Spider-Man as possible", and combines elements from previous Spider-Man portrayals (including Tobey Maguire's from the Spider-Man films, Andrew Garfield's from The Amazing Spider-Man films, and Tom Holland's from the Marvel Cinematic Universe) but with slight differences to indicate that this is an alternate universe from those.

Trivia

  • Lines spoken by Jake Johnson in the trailer were spoken by Chris Pine's Spider-Man in the beginning of the film.
  • He had blonde hair and blue eyes, which resembles Ben Reilly, a clone of Peter Parker from the comics who dyed his hair and used contacts to fashion his own identity.
  • He had a Spider Lair/Hideout where he hid all of his Spider-Man equipment, and a crime lab, including the Spider Buggy, and other Spider Suits he accumulated over the years, including the PS4 Spidey suit with the white spider symbol, the Mark 1 Silver Spider-Man suit, and the classic Red and Gold Iron Spider Armor.
  • This Peter is most likely based on the Ultimate Spider-Man from the Ultimate Comic series, due to the fact that when the Collider is mapping the worlds, we see that Miles's current world is designated Earth 1610, which is the Ultimate Universe. Though he also shares a similar history with other Spider-Men, such as stopping a train, and dancing similar to the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man, a similar hair style, though different color to the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man, and he web holds to buses as Tom Holland's Spider-Man did to hold the two halves of the boat in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
