* How old were Peter Parker parents when they had him if they were spies during WW2?

* How old were Peter Parker parents when they had him if they were spies during WW2?[=WW2=]?



** So they were no longer spies during WW2 cause I remember the comics saying that they were during the 90's.

Added DiffLines:

*** Ben Reilly also doesn't trip Peter's Spider-Sense, and vice versa, because they "cancel out" in a sort of mellow case of ScryVsScry.

Added DiffLines:

*** There's also the fact that, for the longest time, Peter didn't even trust other superheroes with his identity. Spider-Man was bosom buddies with the Fantastic Four, but he still didn't tell them his real name for decades of published comics. If Reed Richards had known the brilliant, bold, Amazing Spider-Man was struggling photographer Peter Parker, Reed probably would have offered him a job, or at least a place to crash in the Baxter Building. But Peter was so paranoid about his identity he never let on, until he'd started making good himself on his own terms.

*** And this coming from a woman whose alias is an insect (already an unpopular animal group) that many people are ''deathly allergic to'', and thus have a legitimate reason to fear.

* I agree with you on some parts but he was being irresponsible with powers that were above the levels of the Hulk or the Phoenix. His recklessness almost caused deaths, he was a kid with an ego with unstoppable level powers. Bit a much on what Peter told him afterwards but still, he had a lot of power that he could not use properly at the time.

** Alpha wasn't just failing to live up to Peter's notions of responsibility: He was actively ignoring his responsibilities, being a massive jerk to everyone around him, sleeping around behind the back and to the face of girls he was with, and engaging in incredibly reckless fights because he could get away with it. Really, it was only a matter of time before the kid caused a tragedy, and with his power, it wasn't going to be limited to "I let Uncle Ben die." Alpha was either going to be so negligent he caused a disaster that made [[ComicBook/CivilWar Stamford]] look like a square dance, or he was going to actively go DrunkOnTheDarkSide and become a threat no one could hope to put down.

* So, maybe I'm just overthinking his costume but why does Spider-Man wear blue. I mean, I get why he wears red and black; black is the color of most spiders and red could represent the black widow's hourglass or something but what does blue have to do with spiders?

* During the whole debacle with the superhero Alpha back in 2012, when Spiderman decides to depower the kid because he's too "irresponsible" with his powers... is Spiderman now deciding to impose his "with great power" schpiel on OTHER PEOPLE? Nevermind that Spiderman doesnt actually live up to that creed himself, this kids life sucked ass before he got his powers, and he made something with it, and Spiderman just took that away, and thats supposed to be the right thing to do? Just because Parker is fine being miserable out of some semi-masochistic desire to martyr himself doesnt mean every metahuman should have to.

** Answered in the ''OfficialHandbookOfTheMarvelUniverse'', and later confirmed in canon-- he has a small unsealable flap for waste disposal. It's also confirmed, somewhat {{Squick}}ily, that said flap does not allow him the option of normal sexual relations.
