Peter B. Parker also known as Spider-Man, is the deuteragonist of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and the tritagonist of its 2023 sequel Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. He was once an ordinary teenager who was bitten by a radioactive spider and gained spider-like powers and abilities. Following the death of his Uncle, Ben Parker, to a crime he didn't stop. Peter swore to used his powers to protect the inhabitants of New York City as the masked superhero known as the Amazing Spider-Man. He is one of the Spider-People pulled out of his universe by the Kingpin, using his Super Collider.
Some time later, in 2018, Peter B. Parker was displaced to another universe as a result of that world's Kingpin's super-collider. Upon arriving there, Parker met Miles Morales: a teenager with abilities similar to his own, for which he was forced to take him under his wing as a way to help Miles control his powers so that he can replaced his deceased counterpart as the new Spider-Man of that reality as well as send him back to his own.
Why He's a Brilliant Mentor
- He's the very first Spider-Man in the multiverse, fighting all of his villains and marrying his Mary Jane. He also has some similarities to Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire's versions of Spider-Man, due to having a similar hair style like Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man and watching Captain Stacy die in front of him, having a house similar to Tobey Maguire's Spider-Man and being older in fact.
- He took Miles under his wing so he could become Spider-Man and save the multiverse.
- His personal life started to go down hill after saving the city so many times as Spider-Man, after the death of his Aunt May, divorcing Mary Jane, and as a result he became a more disbelieved version of the hero he was before.
- Audiences can really relate to how far this Peter Parker has fallen, realizing he's very desperate to get back up top.
- He has a great dynamic and relationship with Miles.
- The scene where he meets his counterpart's Aunt May was emotional and heartwarming due to the fact that he lost his Aunt May and She lost her Peter.
- He has amazing fight scenes and action sequences with Doc-Ock, Prowler, and Kingpin.
- He was willing to stay behind and deactivate the portal in case Miles is not ready to do it, even knowing that this could end his life.
- He's finally in a happy place after he remarried Mary Jane and his lovely daughter named Mayday Parker and introduces her to the Spider-Society.
- He tries reasoning with Miles when he becomes a fugitive to the Spider-Society and eventually defects because he wouldn't have Mayday without him.
- He rightfully reprimands Miguel O'Hara for being too hard on Miles.
- He, along with Gwen, Pavitr, Hobie and a few others, rejoined the Spider-Gang to go help and find Miles to stop Miguel and the Spot.
- Jake Johnson does a great job voicing him.
- He completely ignored his responsibilities as Spider-Man.
- He and Gwen lied to Miles about him being an anomaly, this was really messed up of them.
- He wasn't in the second movie that much, appearing only halfway through the movie.
