Hello and welcome back to clevver u! We are continuing our lesson on the amazing spider man and today we learn about the guy that this is all about, peter parker, aka spiderman!
The character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man first appeared in 1962 in Amazing Fantasy #15. Creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko were inspired by The Spider pulp hero from the 1930's and wanted to create a teenage superhero. Despite a surge in teens reading comic books, the demo tended to be relegated to sidekicks in comics up to that point.
As a child, Peter Parker was orphaned when his parents were killed in an airplane crash. He then went to live with his uncle and aunt, Ben and May Parker, who raise him in Forest Hills, New York.
Peter was SUPER SMART and became a stand out in school for his genius. However, his shyness and love for scholastics made him a total social outcast.
At 15, Peter is bitten by an irradiated spider which empowers him with superhuman strength, reflexes and agility (similar to that of a spider) and the ability to cling to almost any surface. He also possesses a sort of sixth sense, known as "Spider-Sense" that warns him of danger. His spider-powers also allow him to heal quickly, though he is not invulnerable and can be injured or even killed.
Spidey uses web-shooters which are twin devices worn on his wrists which can shoot thin strands of a special "web fluid." Parker, possessing a genius level intellect, develops the Web-Shooters himself and uses them not only to traverse the skyscrapers of New York, but also uses them to as offensive and defensive tools to take down enemies. In alternate versions of the story, including Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy, Peter uses organic webbing that shoots from his wrists - another result of the spider bite.
Peter's dedication to fighting crime stems from the many tragedies in his life. From the death of his parents at such a young age, to the guilt he feels for his role in the death of his Uncle Ben and also of that of his first love, Gwen Stacy.
One thing that makes Spider-Man different from most other superhero's and is perhaps the reason so many fans relate to him is the fact that beyond having superpowers, Peter is a normal person with normal problems. He's not a billionaire playboy, so he often must work. In addition to being a high school and college student, Peter has worked as a teacher and scientific researcher. However he is most well known as a freelance photographer working for the Daily Bugle. He uses his ability to get the best shots of Spider-Man to earn money and also portray his alter-ego in a positive light.
The first live-action portrayal of Spider-Man appeared in the 1978 television series starring Nicholas Hammond as Peter Parker. Peter Parker was later played by Tobey Maguire in Sam Raimi's trilogy and will be played by Andrew Garfield in Marc Webb's new franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man.
SO thereya have it! What you need to know about peter parker! Hope you took notes! See ya next time!
