Peter Parker—Spider-Man

Oh my god. I've been waiting for more than a year to finally see this movie and start putting numbers onto the dozen heroes that Civil War fleshes out, including Vision, Black Panther, Scarlet Witch, and Falcon, but the one I've been really excited for... Spider-Man. Finally, a good, MCU-integrated Spider-Man.

Go watch this movie, my next few posts are probably gonna have spoilers, and it's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, and hands down the best comic book movie ever, so just... just do it.

Now, I was debating rather hard on whether to give Pete the Young Hindrance or not, but decided against it. Between his skill distribution and age—15 as of Civil War—while he is young, the Young Hindrance places characters around 8 to 12 and just seemed like overkill.

Peter Parker is a young man from Queens whose parents died in an accident years ago, and has been living with his aunt May and uncle Ben ever since. When he was just starting high school at around 15, he was bitten by a radioactive spider—giving him incredible super powers of strength, speed, and an uncanny sixth sense that makes him nearly impossible to hit. However, his misuse of his powers ended in the death of his uncle. Peter blamed himself, believing that it his uncle died because he neglected to help.

Since that day, Peter Parker became Spider-Man, inventing a kind of super-strong webbing compound and web-shooters to go with them. These augment his mobility and give him the ability to non-lethally deal with criminals. He mostly stayed in Queens, dealing with petty crime and helping prevent accidents, doing whatever he can to keep his corner of New York safe while trying to keep his identity a secret.

It wasn't long before footage of this new hero began making its way onto YouTube, and Peter was tracked down by Tony Stark almost six months later, recruiting him to help force Captain Steve Rogers to comply with the Sokovia Accords. Peter, while initially skeptical of this idea, was coerced by Stark threatening to tell his aunt May that he had these kinds of powers.

While being a huge help in the Leipzig airport battle, both by evening the numbers out and providing a way to easily restrain the opposition, Peter was eventually knocked back by a stray hit from Ant Man, falling what is likely a few stories and possibly breaking a few ribs. Stark told Peter to stay down, and brought him back to Queens shortly thereafter.

Once he was home, Peter found a Stark-style holographic projector concealed underneath his web shooters, displaying an image of Spider-Man's face with what appears to be communication options.
