Heroes and Allies
The head geneticist of Alchemax, Miguel was overseeing the development of genetic splicing technology, with the ultimate goal of developing corporate raiders who would have the powers of the Heroes of old - most specially, Spider-man. However, even as crooked as his job was, Miguel had morals. When a failed experiment killed a human volunteer - despite Miguel's repeated protests that they were not ready for testing on humans - yet was deemed a success by his superiors, Miguel tried to quit Alchemax, only to be tricked by his boss Tyler Stone into becoming addicted to Rapture, a drug which only Alchemax provides. Desperate for a cure, Miguel tests the technology on himself, but another scientist tried to kill him by sabotaging the experiment while it was underway.
And thus the new Spider-man was born; a man who knew nothing but the cut-throat world of business and science, yet now hating them with a passion, and determined to fight against the corruption they spread.
- 10-Minute Retirement: At the beginning of the 2015 series, Miguel was determined to give up the heroics and live with Tempest. When a terrorist attack "kills" her, he drops this attitude pretty quickly.
- Adaptation Personality Change:
- In Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Miguel is as chatty and snarky in combat as Peter, while in the comics he's almost mute and dead serious.
- In his cameo in The Stinger of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, he gets into an argument over pointing, which is completely out of character as he's usually pretty stoic.
- Affectionate Nickname: Miggy. Tyler Stone calls him "Mike", but he hates it.
- Affirmative Action Legacy: Peter Parker was white, but Miguel is half-Mexican, half-Irish. The Irish part is put under question when his true father is revealed though.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Spiders.
- Antagonistic Offspring:
- Miguel hated his father George with a passion; he wanted him to grow so old that all his organs would have to be replaced with mechanical substitutes that would keep collapsing, just to make him suffer. The reason Miguel cried at his death wasn't sadness to see a loved one go, but anger because his plan never came to fruition.
- His biological father is Tyler Stone, who Miguel already absolutely loathed for his complete Lack of Empathy. Tyler does his best to get Miguel under his thumb, and when that failed, get rid of him.
- Aside Glance: When Lyla goes through the various modes she has installed, she switches to one who looks exactly like Aunt May. Miguel stares right at the reader and then tells Lyla to kill it.
- Back for the Dead: The Miguel from Exiles returns in issue #5 of the 2014 series... only for Morlun to effortlessly kill him.
- Back from the Dead: At the end of Volume 3, Miguel is killed by Tempest thanks to a psychic suggestion set up by Tyler Stone. However, he's warped back to 2099 and resurrected by Strange 2099.
- Badass Bookworm: Miguel looks and acts like an arrogant scientist most of the time, but he's one of the most dangerous powered individuals of his era.
- Badass Family: He ends up starting one, as he, Tempest and their son are all superheroes.
- Big Damn Kiss: Miguel gives this to Tempest, right after her brainwashing kicks in and she kills him. It even has the classic pose from that "the war is over" picture.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: Part of one. Miguel is The Unfavorite to his mother, pushed around by his father, the object of jealousy for his brother, a man to kill at all costs for his other brother, and a tool for his biological father. Miguel's relationship with all of them ranges from "tense" to "near-homicidal rage that's very much mutual".
- Black Sheep: Nobody in his family is a saint, but Miguel had practically sold his soul to Alchemax before the events of the comic.
- Blindfolded Vision: His mask has no lenses or eyeholes of any kind, but the material is implied to be already kind of see-through, and with Miguel's enhanced eyesight it's no longer a problem.
- Bungled Suicide: When he first obtained his powers, Miguel, terrified by the change, tried to jump off the Alchemax building, only for his talons to catch him. After that, he found that he did not have it in him to kill himself.
- Cain and Abel: His half-brother Kron Stone was a psychotic killer who tried to kill Miguel multiple times; and that was before he bonded with the Venom Symbiote.
- Calling Parents by Their Name: Even after The Reveal, Miguel continues to call Tyler Stone by his name. He only calls him "dad" once, and it was as hateful as it gets.
- Canon Immigrant: Miguel is the first 2099 character to make it to make it to Marvel's 616 "main" continuity.
- Cassandra Truth: He tried to tell him mother that he's the new Spider-Man, but between his status as The Unfavorite and his mother's worship of Spider-Man, she just laughs in his face.
- Changing Clothes Is a Free Action: Played with. At first, this was averted, as Miguel had to sneak into places to change into his costume as fast as possible. However, after he got stuck in the past, he wore the costume (sans mask and gloves) all the time, and had Lyla project a hologram of ordinary clothing over it. So all he has to do to change is to tell her to drop the projection.
- Character Development: He went from a Corrupt Corporate Executive who was full of himself to a man filled with doubt yet has a strong moral compass and seeks to improve the world.
- Chest Insignia: A skull-like spider.
- Child Prodigy: Smart enough to be transferred to the Alchemax School for Gifted Youngsters.
- Chosen One: The Thorites are absolutely convinced that Spider-Man is the Herald of Thor. Whether this is true or not depends on what continuity you're reading.
- Comes Great Responsibility: Defied. According to Miguel, "with great power comes great guilt". Over the course of the series, he keeps asking himself many times why he continues his superhero gig.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Peter David specifically designed him that way."Pretty much every place where Stan (Lee) zigged, I zagged...whereas Peter Parker is a high school student, Miguel is a fully-realized adult working in a laboratory. Whereas Peter was shy and reticent and didn't know how to talk to girls but talky and outgoing as Spider-Man, Miguel O'Hara was a fully confident wiseacre with a fiancée... and as Spider-Man, relatively mute."
- Costume Evolution: Miguel's second outfit is far more high tech than the first one and it shows. The new one has a black, red and white motif, far more stylised and streamlined design, and Tron Lines.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: How he started off. His job was to create Corporate Samurais, consequences be damned. And he was very proud of it.
- Cover Identity Anomaly: Liz Allen takes less than a day to figure out that Miguel is Spider-Man, as Spider-Man did not break into the Alchemax building (meaning that he was already inside, thus he was either visiting - unlikely - or is an employee), his name belongs to a dead man, and none of his credentials check out.
- Create Your Own Villain: Miguel curing Tempest of her cancer inadvertently turned her into a mutate bug monster that wants to eat him.
- Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You:
- He is the bastard son of Tyler Stone, the CEO of Alchemax, and absolutely no one in that triangle wants anything to do with each other.
- He sacrifices himself to save Tempest while she was pregnant with his son Gabriel. Gabriel is very understanding of this fact.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He wears an almost black costume with a skull motif and spikes, but he's one of the good guys.
- Deadpan Snarker: When in his civilian persona, Miguel pretty much snarks all the time. Not so much in his Spider-Man persona.Thorite: Remember, Thor is coming!
Miguel: Yeah. Swell. I'll set an extra place.
- Defector from Decadence: He tries to quit Alchemax after an experiment on a human test subject (which he did notapprove of) resulted in the death of the man, and Tyler Stone calls it a success.
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: He dies in Tempest's arms after she was hypnotized into stabbing him.
- Dirty Coward: That's how Xina viewed Miguel when they were kids at school, as he refused to stand up to his bully Kron Stone. The real reason for that was that Miguel knew Kron's father had a huge pull in the school, so Kron not only would not get expelled no matter what he did, but Miguel would have to put up with him for quite a few years.
- Dressed in Layers: Miguel starts wearing his costume beneath his civilian clothes. Subverted in Vol. 3 where his civies are just a hologram.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: Miguel's reaction when a bunch on civilians accuse him of being a corporate stooge despite fighting against them all the time. That said, they were being manipulated by the Goblin.
- Dynamic Entry: Miguel starts his first real fight as Spider-Man by jumping off the window (which doesn't open, by the way), and lands on Venture with a kick.
- Everyone Has Standards: Even at his very worst, Miguel was completely against human experimentation, and treated the one human test subject he had with politeness and respect, asking him if he was sure about his decision and being as accommodating as possible despite Mr. Sims being a criminal.
- Eye Colour Change: Miguel's eyes turned red, forcing him to hide them.
- Fake High: Played for Drama. Turns out that Tyler Stone never slipped Rapture into Miguel's drink, but a fake drug that mimicked its effects and would get flushed off his system in three days. In other words, the entire plot of the comic could have been avoided if Miguel just waited.
- Fiery Redhead: Depending on the Artist, Miguel is portrayed with either red or brown hair, and he has a short temper.
- Fish out of Temporal Water: Subverted in the 2015 series while Miguel is stuck in the past; he's unfamiliar with the modern culture such as shows or how water comes in brands, but overall he's not really disoriented.
- Flat-Earth Atheist: Despite being a superhero in the Marvel universe, he does not believe in God or any other deities. Which is why Atropos catches him by surprise.
- Freak Lab Accident: Subverted. Aaron Delgato caused the accident in an attempt to kill Miguel, but he ended up giving him spider-powers instead.
- Going Commando: After Miguel starts wearing his suit under his regular clothes, Lyla commends that he never used to wear any sort of undergarment under his clothes. Not that Miguel doesn't own any underwear (he has a few shirtless scenes where he's just in his boxers).
- Grandfather Paradox: During Superior Spider-Man, Miguel tries to stop Tyler Stone from traveling back in time to ensure the creation of Alchemax, and then has to stop the Superior Spider-Man from killing his grandfather Tiberius.
- Half-Human Hybrid: After having his DNA spliced with that of a spider, Miguel undergoes quite a few physical changes. Super Strength, crazy reflexes and agility, enhanced eyesight, red eyes, poisonous fangs, retractable talons on each tow and finger, and organic web glands.
- Hot-Blooded: Lampshaded by his brother, as he's half-Mexican, half-Irish.
- Hypocritical Humor: He thinks the Future Slang "flark" sounds ridiculous.
- I'm Having Soul Pains: He can feel when the Inheritors kill one of his alternate counterparts.
- I Am Not My Father: Either of those.
- I Have No Idea What I'm Doing: He admits as much in the early issues, as he has no clue how his powers work, no idea how to fight and no plan beyond "make it out as intact as possible".
- I Just Want to Be Normal: Miguel's ultimate goal. For the longest time, all he really wants is to cure himself and keep living a normal life as a scientist; that thought is always at the back of his head.
- I Lied: He admits that he has no idea what would happen to Daemos if the force field went down.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: His death.
- Inconsistent Coloring: Depending on the Artist, Miguel's hair is either red or brown, as his costume is either blue or black.
- Innocently Insensitive: After he notes Tempest's fatalistic attitude and sees the medical bills on her table, he flatly asks her how sick she is. She doesn't take kindly to this.
- Insufferable Genius: In the very first issue, before his ego got knocked down a few pegs.Miguel (talking to another scientist): We just can't go too quickly. Otherwise...
Aaron: Otherwise what?
Miguel: Otherwise we'd lose you. So we're taking it nice and slow so that you can follow along. Enjoy the book. It has lots of pictures.
- It Runs in the Family: Miguel starts thinking that madness is a family trait, seeing that his mother was in a mental hospital, his brother is a Cybernet addict with a lack of impulse control, and Miguel is Spider-Man.
- Legacy Character: He is the second iteration of Spider-Man, both in and out of universe.
- Literal-Minded: At one point he says he "needs perspective" to deal with the other executives. He stands on the table.
- Logical Weakness: Since Miguel can see in the dark, lights become a huge problem for him.
- The Lost Lenore: For a while he thinks that Tempest is dead, before a coworker of his found her by accident in the hospital.
- Love at First Sight: Miguel fell in love with Dana as soon as he saw her, which was problematic as she was dating his brother at the time.
- Love Dodecahedron: Miguel fell in love and stole his brother's girlfriend Dana while he was still dating Xina. And that was before things got complicated. Let's just say his love life is a mess.
- Loves My Alter Ego:
- His mother Conchata adores Spider-Man, but has very low opinion of her son.
- Kasey also falls for Spider-Man, but to her, Miguel is a slimeball.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: While overhearing a conversation between his mother and Tyler Stone, Miguel finds out that Tyler is his father. He proceeds to freak out.
- The Man Is Sticking It to the Man: Miguel fights passionately against the corporate stooges despite being a high-ranking corporate executive himself.
- Me's a Crowd: After he goes public, there's a whole bunch of people with cheap copies of his suit running around.
- Mistaken Identity: Several people in the 616 universe confuse Miguel for the original Spider-Man. When a cop notes that it can't be the same guy because the costume is different, another one asks him if he only owns one set of clothes.
- Mr. Fanservice: In-Universe. His suit is perfectly form-fitting, giving a very satisfied Kasey a good look of "the tightest ass she's ever seen".
- Multi-Ethnic Name: His given name is Spanish for Michael, and his surname is Irish.
- Murder by Mistake: His first two kills were caused entirely by the fact that Miguel couldn't control his powers just yet.
- My God, What Have I Done?: This is Miguel's reaction when he realises he slit the Specialist's throat by accident.
- My Suit Is Also Super:
- His first suit is a Day of the Dead costume that's made of Unstable Molecule Fabric (UMF for short) so that it wouldn't tear in case things got rowdy. Since nothing can penetrate it, it protects Miguel from most cuts (though he still feels the impact) and he's able to use his talons unimpeded. He also attached a short cape made from anti-gravity web foil (the material is called light byte), so he can glide and control his free falls.
- The second suit, courtesy of Peter Parker, is made of a mix of UMF and Kevlar, thus making it invulnerable to almost everything, has a perfected glider system, thrusters in his boots, and a full radar-GPS system for navigation and threat detection. Even with his 2099 standards, Miguel admits that it's top of the art.
- Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
- His second run with Venture was seconds after he fought Venture's sister Risque, so Miguel attacked without a second thought. And then it turns out that the whole thing could have been avoided cause Venture was only there to kill her and was willing to leave him alone, but now that they fought they're mortal enemies.
- Dana's death could have potentially be prevented if Miguel hadn't authorized the Alchemax to use lethal force against Venom, who was holding her hostage.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: He delivers one to Kron Stone after the latter refused to give any information and mocked Miguel's anguish over the death of his loved ones. Miguel let him out of the cell he was captive and goaded him in a fight, resulting to this.
- Not Quite Flight: The cape on his back is made of an anti-gravity material called light byte, which allows him to glide.
- Oh, Crap!:
- When Miguel finds himself face-to-face with Morlun, he almost wets himself in terror. When he notices Morlun is having the same reaction, he realizes the super villain is afraid to set foot in the 616 universe and decides to ask Peter Parker why.
- His reaction when he realises he shares a cell with Strange 2099.
- And again later, when he realises he shares a plane with Elektra.
- The Paralyzer: The poison in Miguel's fangs allows him to paralyze his targets so they Can Only Move the Eyes.
- Pet the Dog:
- He comforts the Thorite who saved him in the first issue as he was dying, and then he comforts his widow too.
- He cures Tempest's leukemia for the sole reason that he could do it and he didn't want to see her die.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: Miguel aims to become this after taking over as the CEO of Alchemax.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Miguel's eyes turned red after he obtained his powers, and he's one of the most dangerous characters in the setting, with a short temper to match.
- Required Secondary Superpowers: His talons retract when he touches his own skin. This is necessary so that he doesn't injure himself when doing everyday tasks like going to the bathroom.
- Revenge: His initial motivation for fighting Alchemax was to take revenge at Tyler Stone for getting him addicted to Rapture.
- The Quiet One: Miguel when in Spider-Man mode. He doesn't talk unless it's strictly necessary. Lampshaded a few times, most notably in a crossover with the original Spider-Man, when one of the latter's rogues comments that Miguel is a nice change of pace.
- Sadistic Choice: Venom forces this on him when he keeps both Xina and Dana captive and tells him to choose which one to save.
- Sarcastic Confession:
- When asked by his brother why he's mumbling, Miguel replies that he's grown fangs and if he opens his mouth too wide, Gabriel will see them. Gabriel thinks it's a tasteless joke.
- When stranded in the past, whenever Miguel acts odd or displays future knowledge and other characters call him out on it, he simply tells them the truth, they laugh and all is fine again.
- Secret Keeper: He's one of the few people who know that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. This comes to bite Otto Octavius in the ass during Superior Spider-Man, as he has absolutely no clue who the hell this stranger is.
- Sir Swears-a-Lot: He's very fond of the all-purpose Future Slang "shock". That's the equivalent of "fuck", by the way.
- Spanner in the Works: For everyone in the 616 timeline. Here comes this complete stranger who knows Peter Parker's true identity, tries to both protect and sabotage Tiberius Stone at the same time, infiltrates Alchemax for some unknown reason and nobody has any clue what he wants or what he's doing here.
- Stranger in a Familiar Land:
- He and his friends experience this after they return from the Day of the Dead festival in Mexico, as in their absence, Dr. Doom took over the White House, SHIELD was up and running again, Tyler Stone was shot and suddenly Alchemax fell on Miguel's hands.
- Most of Miguel's efforts in the 2015 series are focused on restoring 2099 to what it's supposed to be after the events of Spider-Verse and Secret Wars left it in shambles. He ends up in many alternative Bad Futures, each more different than the last.
- Suddenly SHOUTING: When he and the other Alchemax scientists try to figure out Venom's weakness, Miguel says that IT MAY BE SENSITIVE TO SOUND!! (His punctuation, not ours). Sure enough, it works.
- Sunglasses at Night: Miguel is forced to wear them as his eyesight is too sensitive. When asked about it by Tyler Stone, he lies that it's a side-effect of Rapture.
- Super Reflexes: Part of his power set. That said, he doesn't have the Spider sense but enhanced eyesight, so he can still be caught blind-sighted.
- Super Senses: Eyesight in particular. Miguel has accelerated perception - something that completely throws him off initially - and Innate Night Vision. The later makes him very sensitive to light, so he has to wear sunglasses at all hours and keep the lights as low as possible.
- Super Strength: He can lift a car with ease, much to his disbelief.
- Tempting Fate: Right after the whole affair with the Atlanteans...Miguel: God, what a day. How could it possibly get any worse?
Conchata (pointing a gun at Tyler Stone): Not now, Miguel. Mother's conference.
Miguel: Uh boy.
- Trapped in the Past: He ends up stuck in the Heroic Era after the events of Superior Spider-Man as Tyler Stone tricked him by destroying the time machine from his end.
- Tron Lines: Downplayed, but they're part of his second outfit.
- Turn Out Like His Father: This is both Miguel and Conchata's greatest fear, especially when it turns out said father is Tyler Stone. Miguel puts conscious effort not to let this happen.
- Twofer Token Minority: Half-Mexican, half-Irish. Though the Irish part is later brought into question.
- The Unfavorite: He is this to his mother, as she keeps seeing his father in him the more he grows up. In fact, when Conchata attempts to commit suicide, she sends a message only to Gabriel. Later on their relationship is somewhat improved.
- Unwanted False Faith: Miguel is not happy with the Thorites' worship of Spider-Man, and he's even less happy when those worshippers form their own faction. However, he does occasionally use this status to get out of some tight spots.
- Unwitting Pawn: By fixing Dr. Doom's time machine, he accidentally helps Maestro get back to the past as he wanted.
- Walk the Earth: He does this for a while after he finds out that Tyler Stone is his father. Doubles as Journey to Find Oneself.
- Wall Crawl: Rather than naturally stick to walls like Peter could, Miguel sinks his talons in the surfaces.
- What Beautiful Eyes!: Tempest says his eyes are like the sunset. She was admittedly, very drunk at the time.
- What Have I Become?: Miguel is not pleased with his powers. At all. He calls himself a "freak", refers to them as a "condition" more than once and always has the thought of finding a cure at the back of his head. His initial reaction to realising what he's turned into is pure terror.Miguel: A freak! He turned me into a freak! I'd rather DIE!
- White Sheep: From the Stone part of his family, he's the only one with a moral compass.
- Wolverine Claws: Downplayed,but he has retractable talons in each finger and tow, which allows him to both cling onto walls and use slashing attacks.
- Your Cheating Heart: Miguel began hooking up with Dana, his younger brother's girlfriend, when he was still with Xina.
Miguel's AI sidekick, or rather his Lyrate Life-form Approximation Holographic Assistant. She's by far his most steadfast ally in his journey, and he trusts her more than he trusts about 90% of the people he knows.
- Adaptation Personality Change: While usually Lyla's mannerisms make it quite obvious that she's an AI, in The Stinger of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse it looks more like she's a scientist transmitting from elsewhere, and has no common mannerisms with her canon counterpart.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Out of nowhere Lyla gets overprotective of Miguel like a clingy girlfriend, assaulting Dana and Gabriel with the building's security bots. Subverted in that she had been hacked.
- Costume Evolution: After she's stuck in the past with Miguel, she resembles Marilyn Monroe much more closely, probably because they have a better reference for what the actress looked like.
- Emotionless Girl: She repeatedly states that as an AI, she does not have emotions but can simulate them. She slowly seems to grow over that as time passes though.
- Grew Beyond Their Programming: This happens by necessity while she and Miguel are stuck in the past, as Miguel assigns her increasingly complex tasks that go far beyond what the duties of a house robot are. She also seems to grow emotionally, as by the end of vol. 3 she acknowledges that human life is precious and must be protected, while previously she couldn't understand the concept of death.
- Hollywood Hacking: While she and Miguel are stuck in the Heroic Era, she's able to hack absolutely anything. She justifies this by saying it's mostly the sheer gap in technology that enables her to do this.
- Holographic Disguise: One of her many abilities. She hides Miguel's costume, and can turn him invisible too.
- Hulking Out: At one point she snaps at Gabriel and takes the build of a female bodybuilder. Gabri is sufficiently intimidated.
- Impossibly Cool Clothes: Justified, since she's a hologram, but her dress is always waving as if there's wind blowing under it.
- Innocently Insensitive: Her inability to understand emotions means that she doesn't treat some of the more tragic moments that Miguel is facing with the appropriate seriousness, making him snap on her.
- Just a Machine: She ends up at the receiving end of this argument quite a few times, and usually she agrees... until the end of vol. 3, that is.
- Literal-Minded: Expected, since she's an AI. That leads to some pretty funny interactions.Lyla: Miguel has repeatedly stated that you [Tyler Stone] like to suck the blood of widows and orphans. There's none in the fridge, but perhaps some cofee?
Tyler Stone: Charming holo you have, Mike.
- Living Lie Detector: One of her functions is to monitor heartbeats, making her a polygraph version of this trope.
- Memento Macguffin: She is modelled after a tattoo of Merilyn Monroe that Miguel's ex Xina had. When she breaks down, instead of replacing her, which would be much easier, he tries to restore her.
- No Celebrities Were Harmed: She is modelled In-Universe after Merilyn Monroe.
- Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: Lyla describes herself as such in the Heroic Era, as while she's commonplace in 2099, over there she's beyond cutting edge.
- O.O.C. Is Serious Business: The first thing that clues Gabriel that something's wrong with her is when she develops a Yandere personality out of nowhere.
- Say My Name: Her reaction to Miguel's death is to scream out his name in shock.
- Took a Level in Badass: She started off as a glorified Siri, but by the end of Vol. 3 she's a fantastic hacker, her holographic technology and sensors are used for combat purposes, and she can access databases in the future.
- Trapped in the Past: She's stuck along with Miguel, though she can still access the 2099 databases.
- Troll: During an argument between Miguel and Tyler, Lyla starts playing the violin.Lyla: I thought it was appropriate. Of you'd like, I also know "Turkey in a Straw".
Tyler Stone (thinking): I hate that hologram.
- Undying Loyalty: To Miguel. And as vol. 3 shows, it goes far beyond her programming. Electro tries to trick her into joining him so she's no longer Miguel's slave by playing up her newly acquired emotions along with the definition of what slavery is, and she tricks him right back into spilling his plans and relaying the whole thing to Miguel.
- What Is This Thing You Call "Love"?: She is incapable of understanding Miguel's anguish over the death of his loved ones.
- "World of Cardboard" Speech: She delivers one to Atropos after she accuses her of being just a robot and thus not alive.Lyla: I know I know more than you.
- You Don't Look Like You: In her cameo in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, she looks nothing like Marylin Monroe. Instead, she has chin-length hair with a fringe, heart-shaped sunglasses and a long wool white coat.
Miguel's younger brother. His various girlfriends over the years have involved him in the dark world of Undertown deeply, giving him a strong sense of morality. Unfortunately, his relationship with Miguel isn't all that positive.
- Affectionate Nickname: Gabri and Gabe.
- Amicable Exes: He and Dana still are on friendly terms.
- Battle Couple: With Kasey. Seen ealy on in vol. 1 when the two participate in a gang war inside St. Patrick's (with Gabriel acting more as a getaway driver), but fully blown into this trope in a the vol. 3 Bad Future.
- BFG: Dana had left one in his apartment "just in case". He puts it in good use when Daemos threatens to molest Lady Spider.
- Big, Screwed-Up Family: Seems to be the Only Sane Man in his, if you discount that he may or may not be the Goblin. Even so, his relationship with Miguel is still pretty tense, and his father pretty much ignored his existence. Not to mention Gabriel's own problems.
- Blatant Lies: During the whole confrontation between Miguel, Kasey and the Specialist (which was televised in every monitor), Gabriel lies to Dana that he has no idea who that woman is, and when Miguel falls in Downtown, he lies that he just remembered he has an appointment with a client. Dana calls him out on this, but he doesn't acknowledge it.
- Cassandra Truth: Kasey won't believe him when he tells her that he's not Spider-Man.
- Chick Magnet: Miguel names at least five different girlfriends of Gabriel's, two of which just from the year before.
- Chivalrous Pervert: He obviously lusts after Lady Spider but when Daemos threatens to molest her he blasts him away with his BFG in disgust.
- Comes Great Responsibility: His girlfriend Kasey teaches this to him, and in turn he tries to convey the message to Miguel.
- Crazy-Prepared: When a malevolent AI took over each machine in the city, Gabriel was the only one who had backups of his backups and thus knew how to deal with the threat.
- Dating Catwoman: Downplayed, but his girlfriend Kasey is one of the ringleaders in the Downtown gang wars. Apparently, Gabe had plenty of girlfriends like that over the years.Miguel: Incredible. Gabe manages to hook up with every loony in the whole shocking city.
- Digital Avatar: His avatar in Cybernet, Firelight, looks like Gabriel himself, driving a red sports car (or the 2090's version of it, at any rate), which leaves a flame trail, and has an amorous, skimpy-dressed girl on board. In one the Bad Futures in vol. 3, his avatar changes to look like a more hellish version of Ghost Rider, minus the motorcycle.
- Distracted by the Sexy: When he shakes hands with Lady Spider he ends up gazing at her and holding her hand for far too long.Lady Spider: Peter has some unshaken ones if you're still in the mood.
- Dramatic Irony: Right after Miguel discovered the identity of his real father, an oblivious Gabriel tells him that there are some things that never change, such as how they share the same gene pool.
- Fiery Redhead: Depending on the Artist, he either has brown or red hair.
- Goggles Do Something Unusual: They allow him to view virtual reality spaces. It's part of his job (he's some sort of special effects guy).
- Going Cold Turkey: He had a severe addiction to the Cybernet, but he hasn't logged in for years. He eventually gives in during the events of the comic as a coping mechanism, but he's much more careful this time around.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Gabriel is extremely jealous of how Miguel keeps stealing his girlfriends from him. It's not even played for laughs; when Kasey it becomes obvious that Kasey stays with him solely because she thinks he's Spider-Man, Gabriel snaps at her saying that he wishes this were true because she doesn't look at him (Gabriel) the same way she looks at Spider-Man.
- Hot-Blooded: His fuss is even shorter than his brother's.
- It Runs in the Family: The family's insanity tendencies. The subject of Gabriel's "cybernet days" is one that brings terror to his family even years later. Gabriel was addicted to the virtual world, to the point of letting his body waste away while he was surfing. Miguel says that Gabriel had an odd look in his eyes back then, and their mother Conchata was absolutely horrified to find Gabriel logged in.
- Locked Out of the Loop: A downplayed case, since due to the sheer amount of time travel involved, he never finds out that Otto Octavius was possessing Peter Parker (or anything related to the events of Superior Spider-Man, for that matter), and only has the most basic outline for the events of Spider-Verse.
- Love Dodecahedron: His original girlfriend Dana fell for Miguel while they were still dating, and even when she and Miguel got engaged, they still had feelings for each other and even shared a kiss. After that, his new girlfriend Kasey fell for Spider-Man (who unbeknownst to her is Miguel), but then she confuses Spider-Man for Gabriel because they have similar voices and S-Man brought up the Comes Great Responsibility discussion.
- Mistaken Identity: An odd case, as Kasey thinks that Gabriel is Spider-Man, and won't let him explain otherwise.
- Noodle Incident: He's strongly implied to have been involved in a number of those during his days of surfing the Cybernet as Firelight, some of which took huge proportions.
