Peter Parker is the main protagonist of the series, Marvel's Spider-Man and is also known as the masked web-slinger of New York, Spider-Man. He is voiced by Robbie Daymond.
Peter Parker is a boy who lost his parents and was taken by his uncle and aunt. He was then raised by them as he started to be encouraged by his uncle to pursue Science, who also taught him by his motto "with great power, comes great responsibility."
During a school trip to Oscorp Tower, Peter was bitten by one of the experimental spiders that escaped during a breach. While reeling from the effects of the spider bite, Peter discovered he had developed amazing spider-like abilities. Still amazed by these new powers, Peter decided to approach this predicament using the five steps of the scientific method: observation, hypothesis, prediction, experimentation, and conclusion.
While examining his new abilities, Peter developed two web-shooter bracelets to make up for the fact he didn't seem to inherit the spider's ability to generate webbing. While trying out his ability to swing from weblines, Peter was inspired by a fortune-teller to use his powers to pursue fame and fortune, while still keeping his identity a secret. With the resources from his house, Peter created a costume. The young boy subsequently chose wrestling as the stepping stone to stardom, using the stage name "the Spider."
While getting ready to confront professional wrestler Bonesaw McGee as part of the show "So You Want to be a Wrestler?" a fleeing thief ran past Peter. Having determined that catching the criminal wasn't his responsibility, Peter didn't intervene. As the Spider, Peter easily defeated his opponent in the ensuing wrestling match, winning a trophy and the cameraman tells him that he was gonna remember this for the rest of his life.
When he returned home, Peter learned his Uncle Ben had been murdered by a burglar he surprised trying to break into their house. Fueled by rage, Peter suited up and confronted the murderer in the warehouse where the police had notified he was holding up. As soon as Peter got a close look at the criminal's face, he realized it was the very same thief he didn't lift a finger to stop earlier that very same night. When Peter returned home following the burglar's arrest, who was sentenced to the prison for 25 yrs and Peter, therefore, makes his conclusion that his powers are not to be taken lightly. He discovered he had finally realized the true meaning behind his Uncle Ben's motto. Deciding to honor the memory of his uncle, Peter set out to use his powers to help people, wearing a new refined costume and taking up the superhero alias of Spider-Man.

As Peter Parker
Peter is a young Caucasian Teenager who has lime green eyes and dark brown hair. He wears a hood (sometimes either dark gray or red) with a t-shirt underneath and blue jeans with grey sneakers.
His new costume is a body suit which he created at Horizon High, it based on an arachnid, with the spider suit's primary colors being red and blue, with a silhouette of a spider on the chest area and a large red spider on the back. The red section has a black pattern that resembles that of a spider web, with the center of the web being on the mask between the eyes and on top of the nose. The eyes on the mask are white with a bold black outline around them. His shoe welts and wrists, where his web shooters reside are blue. This becomes his primary costume.
Peter created his first costume using red/blue hoodie, his aunt's blue sweatpants, black gloves and dark sneakers. And a red mask with a pair of yellow goggles. It was intended to be his wrestling costume to test out his powers during the Scientific Method and even later used it to make his superhero debut as Spider-Man, although many people started miscalling him by other names: bugboy, beetle kid, and flying squirrel. The costume was torn during Spider-Man's first encounter with the Spider-Slayer.
When he came in contact with the V-252, Peter's suit became black and has a white spider on the chest and on the back of his body. He gets rid of the symbiote because it tries to take over his mind and start causing chaos.
