Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Miguel once cheated on his girlfriend with his ''brother's'' girlfriend (who is now Miguel's fiancé) and seems uninterested in mending his relationship with his distant family. At the start of the series he's also unabashedly making mercenaries for the evil MegaCorp Alchemax and after becoming Spidey cares more about getting revenge... but with some prodding he does start on the path to genuine heroism.

Added DiffLines:

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: A deliberate attempt on Peter David's part. Peter: friendless high school student, gets powers by accident, becomes more confident and talkative as Spidey, clearly loves his friends and family. Miguel: engaged and has a high-paying job, gives himself powers to try and cure himself of a poisonous drug his boss injects into him, is uncomfortable as Spidey and loses his wiseass-ness in costume, and is very isolated from his old friends and family.

* ArchEnemy: Has one named Zeta, who is a tumor-like beast. He's also [[spoiler: the mugger that Alpha nearly killed.]] Alpha asked Spider-Man to help finish him, but some of Zeta's cancerous tissues escapes, meaning he will be back again.



* {{Blackmail}}: He's currently being blackmailed by "Boss" Cohen, the crimelord of Pittsburgh over the incident above in TheAtoner. And this was after Cohen attempted to kill his mother through a fire and then targeted his LoveInterest.



** His life has been steadily getting worse as his parents have divorced (which perhaps his homelife may not been as good as first assumed) and he is currently being blackmailed by a crimelord while trying to be the protector of Pittsburgh.



* CharacterShilling: Assessed by Reed to potentially be the first alpha level threat, which puts him above the Hulk, Sentry and even the Phoenix in terms of power level.

** Turns out this is because his "power source," Parker Particles, are tied to the ''expansion of the universe.'' It certainly explains why he can be a danger.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Zeta appears to be the result of his ill-controlled powers mutating someone into a tumor-like abomination. [[spoiler: Said someone was the mugger.]]
* DePower: Spider-Man eventually decided Alpha was too irresponsible for his power add used Terminus' lance depower Alpha after too much collateral damage.
** This was undone by the Superior Spider-Man (Doc Ock) who was gradually repowering Andrew during his weekly Horizon Labs test in the hopes of taking that power for himself.



* {{Jerkass}}: He became the total package after getting his powers. After he lost them, he became more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.

** He would get depowered as he was too reckless agaisnt Terminus and Peter decided it wasn't worth it.
* {{Jerkass}}: He became the total package after getting his powers. After he lost them, he powers.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He
became a nicer person and trying to do good after being de-powered. Heck, as seen with TheAtoner, he's more of a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.willing to try and take responsability.



** But later in his mini, it was revealed that deep inside [[IJustWantToBeNormal he just wants to be normal]].
* JuniorCounterpart: He's just like Peter from before his Uncle Ben's death; wishing to exploit his powers for fame and profit.

* JuniorCounterpart: He's just He is somewhat like Peter from Parker back when he got his powers, but before his losing Uncle Ben's death; wishing Ben. He wanted to exploit use his powers for fame and profit.



* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Like Peter Parker once was.

to:

* OnlyFriend: Duncan Kilgore is his confidant and only non-superhuman friend.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Like Peter Parker once was. Unlike Peter though, he was even more average, being a C- student and having little motivation.



* SuperpowerLottery: Let's see, flight, energy blasts, nigh-invulnerability, low-level telekinesis, matter manipulation and with enough power to put people in a severe coma at 10%. The only downside being that he can only use one ability at a time.
* TheScrappy: Both in universe and in real life. He was doomed to become this since the beginning (something his creator Dan Slott kinda expected it seems), first announced as Spider-Man's new sidekick to light the fire of the fandom (who despised the sole idea of Spidey joining the Avengers, let alone getting a sidekick), then wrote him as a complete Jerkass with no redeemable qualities and to top it all, making him a GodModeSue who is shown to be stronger than [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Thor]] in one fight. Even now when he's getting some better characterization in his mini, people still cry why did he get a mini instead of being thrown at [[ComicBook/AvengersArena "The Arena"]].

* BigGood: A minor example: moments of selfishness aside, Zeke has done a ''lot'' of work to organize the protection of the Spider-Totems of Earth-616 from Morlun and others like him. He preceded Arana's mother as TheHunter of the Spider-Society and founded a number of companies - most notably [=WebCorps=] - to act as fronts for it. He has been keeping tabs on the various individuals connected to the Web of Life, such as Peter Parker and Cindy Moon, for years.

By and far its most famous avatar is the Peter Parker of Earth-616 (and by extension his clones as well). Anya Corazon and Cindy Moon as backup avatars in case Peter dies or turns against it.

* CorruptCorporateExecutive: Mild example. He was a founder of [=WebCorp=], tying both him and Spider-Man in with Araña. However, he used his powers for personal gain.

* FedToTheBeast: He tries to do this to Peter Parker in order to become Earth-616's primary spider totemic avatar, taking him to the Spider Totems' temple in Ghana and summoning one of them to devour him. He has a change of heart and sacrifices himself so that Peter can survive.
