Spider-Man is a superhero published by Marvel Comics. First appearing in Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962), he is a crime-fighter with spider-based powers and utilizes gadgets based around webbing. Spider-Man is widely regarded as one of Marvel's most popular characters, due to the relatability with readers, wide arrange of popular supervillains and the character's moral stance. First added into the Superheroes Unlimited in version 1.6, Spider-Man's costume can be accessed either through the Hero Maker or Suit Assembly Unit. Wearing it will give them many of his powers and abilities, along with several of his gadgets.
Spider-Man's true identity is Peter Parker, a high school student, photographer for the Daily Bugle and/or lab worker (depending on the continuity or timeframe). The son of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents Richard and Mary Parker, he was brought up by his uncle Ben and aunt May after they died in a plane crash. Growing up in Queens, New York, Peter was a talented student, though bullied by a number of his peers. Whilst at a science exhibition with his class, Peter was bitten by a spider mutated by radiation. This mutated his DNA and granted him a variety of powers, including enhanced speed, strength, senses and the ability to cling to walls seamlessly.
At first, Peter used these powers to gain minor fame as a wrestler called "Spider-Man", though kept his identity secret to avoid his personal life being affected by his lifestyle. He also developed a variety of gadgets to use in the ring, including Web-Shooters. However, when a thief robbed the matchmakers, Peter refused to stop him, believing that it wasn't his problem. However, this thief would later kill of his uncle, who was shot during his escape. After learning his indirect responsibility for this, Peter decided to use his powers to stop crime and protect others, taking on one of Ben's lesson: "With Great Power comes Great Responsibility".
Becoming a public figure, Spider-Man would face many different foes, including the marauder Green Goblin, mad scientist Doctor Octopus, a group of criminals called the Sinister Six, and the symbiote Venom. Despite his positive actions, Peter's academic, work and personal lives would suffer from decisions he would make, even leading to a variety of tragedies. As Spider-Man, he became embroiled with a variety of other superheroes, including the Fantastic Four, the Avengers and the X-Men. He was also a founding member of the Future Foundation, a team meant as a replacement to the Fantastic Four after the apparent death of the Human Torch.
