Reputation

Spider-Man has only been known around town for the last year roughly, unless you've been in Queens then you might know him from two years ago or so though it's only been recently that he's come on the scene to any measure of notoriety and usually clashing with some animal-themed costumed weirdo.%r%rPeter Parker, on the other hand, doesn't have much of a rep beyond as a promising chemical and engineering student at Empire State University.

Biography

After losing his parents, Peter Parker was raised by his loving Aunt and Uncle, Ben and May Parker. They were the reason for his early success, ever supportive and there with strong advice to help him over the hurdles of life. They instilled in him a sense of responsibility to his community, a sense of morality for his life, and just enough confidence to allow himself to excel in a harsh world.

But it wasn't until his uncle Ben passed that Peter's life would truly find focus.

During a school trip, Peter was exposed to a genetically modified spider that bit him and infected him with the same mutagen that altered the creature. It gave him abilities and powers that at first he had no idea what to do with. Of course, being a teenager, his first act was to try and be selfish. He used his powers to try and gain money, to impress his school friends, and to be able to buy his way to their affections. But in this pursuit it was his uncle who would pay the price. A criminal robbed the arena where Peter had been moonlighting as a professional wrestler. He had a chance to stop the robber but instead chose to hold back out of spite for the arena owner treating him poorly. That criminal went on to murder his uncle.

It was that weight of guilt, that utter though momentary failure of his that set Peter on the path that would have him become Spider-Man. He took the weight of the world on his back and decided to use his powers to stop people like the man who took his uncle from him. He didn't want anyone else to suffer that loss. And, for a time, things went well. He was making a small difference, continued in high school, and actually had a social life.

Yet in a moment of weakness he once again blew off his responsibilities, selfishly choosing to spend time with his girlfriend of the time. Due to his inattention she became a victim of one of his enemies and she lost her life. It was enough to make him realize that he needs to keep and hold his priorities straight otherwise those around him will suffer.

Currently he is a sophomore in Empire State University pursuing a degree in chemistry. He has been able to make ends meet with the money from his scholarship and by selling the occasional photo to the Daily Bugle. He has been Spider-Man for roughly two years though it was only after graduation from High School that he started to make an impact on the city as a whole with costumed villains coming to the fore to face him.

Character Details

Peter Parker has been an introvert most of his life. He was quiet, kept to himself, and yet despite this he showed glimpses of being quick-witted and occasionally pretty clever. But he wouldn't come into his own until he put on the mask and with that mask came a sort of liberating feeling where in times of high pressure he felt compelled… to talk. A stream of consciousness in some ways, and in others an insulting/teasing/wise-cracking tone, Peter let loose with his personality in Spider-Man and despite his efforts to keep it separate it manifested in his day to day life in this building of confidence. Peter had come out of his shell.

Beyond that, however, he has always been an honorable young man. He has a moral compass that is almost unassailable and he sticks by his convictions. He can be fun and charming at times when he's comfortable but he also has an unfortunate habit of at times putting his foot in his mouth when he's nervous. He is really what one would consider the best elements of an All-American Boy even if he doesn't try to be consciously.
