Spider-Man

History


Peter Parker was just your average kid from Queens, one face amongst many. His parents having gone mysteriously missing and presumed dead when he was just a child, Parker was brought in to be raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben Parker, both of whom would have a significant impact on the strong moral core he would develop growing up. Smart but shy and soft-spoken when growing up, Peter was frequently bullied as a kid, particularly by frequent bane of his existence, Flash Thompson.

With he and his relatives barely scraping by, and his frequent harassment at school, Peter's life seemed like a walking vortex of poor fortunes. And so it was, at the nadir of Peter's high school existence, those fortunes would take a drastic and bizarre turn (not necessarily for the better) with a single spider's bite while he was attending a science exhibit. Through whatever strange twist of fate, the bite of the genetically altered spider changed Peter on a fundamental level, granting him enormous superhuman abilities. He was faster, stronger, more nimble than any normal human could ever be. And probably predictably, it all went to the young nerd's head.

For the first time in his life, Peter was as strong as he was smart, and, being a teenager, he quickly started to abuse that fact with wild abandon. Eventually, young Parker became something of a minor local celebrity in Queens as a masked fighter named "Spider-Man" who quickly went viral with his performance in wrestling cage matches. As he became more and more invested in his celebrity and the money he was making, he disregarded the advice and attempts by his uncle to reach out to him, and eventually, that fact would cost him dearly: after being short-changed on payment during one of his matches, Peter blithely allowed a robber at the studio to escape — a robber who would eventually come to mug and kill Uncle Ben while he was out looking for his nephew. When he discovered his uncle's death, Peter hunted the man responsible… only to feel tremendous guilt when he realized just who it was who committed the act.

Deeply humbled, and deeply guilt-ridden, Peter blamed himself for Uncle Ben's death. He vowed on that day to live up to his uncle's high expectations of him, following one of the many homilies Ben imparted on him: "With great power, comes great responsibility."

Since then, Peter has become a masked vigilante known as Spider-Man, a local sensation. A lot of people distrust him, and there's this one jerk of a newspaper editor who hates his guts, and life has a habit of kicking him repeatedly while he's down, and he's barely making ends meet while juggling a job, his college classes, and trying to save the world, buy hey — he's not quite dead yet, and that must mean he's doing pretty good, right? … right???

Personality


Peter Parker is your average joe. This alter-ego is calm, easy going, if not a bit quiet and understated at times. He is also very down-to-earth, and grounded in his moral and ethical beliefs. He has his own kind of a light-hearted wit that helps to keep others comfortable during conversations, and is the type of person that someone could turn to for their problems. He is the everyman, someone most people can relate to on some level. At the same time, though, Peter can sometimes come off as absent-minded or distant, as if day-dreaming. He seems to be tired much of the time, as if he has spread himself out too thin. He is sometimes forgetful, often late or forced to reschedule plans, though he will always try his best to make the time for important things — and at the end of the day, Parker blends himself in so well with the crowd it's often easily overlooked.

…Of course, /Spider-Man/ is quite a bit different from Peter Parker. Spider-Man is a veritable machine of obnoxious and, much like the Energizer Bunny, once he gets started he keeps going, and going, and going, and… Spider-Man is a veritable fountain of wit and jokes, usually at the expense of the people he finds himself pitted against. He has a way of getting under a person's skin, even if they consider themselves patient — if not from glib jabs he will make at them, then for the simple fact that he just. Never. Stops. No matter the situation, Spider-Man usually has at /least/ one joke to quip. And yet, though he plays the fool, Spider-Man is still a very noble and selfless individual, and will do what he can to protect innocent lives, even if it means putting himself in harm's way. He is much more observant than many give him credit for, and will put the needs of others before his own. Spider-Man is a hero in every sense of the word.

… Albeit, a hero who doesn't know the meaning of the words 'shut up.'
