- “With great power comes great responsibility.”
Spider-Man (real name Peter Parker) is a fictional superhero from Marvel Comics. Arguably Marvel's most popular superhero, Spider-Man has appeared in countless media throughout his lifetime. Peter Parker was a high school student bitten by a genetically altered radioactive spider that granted him spider-like superpowers. However, due to the death of his uncle Ben Parker, Peter vowed to use his powers responsibly and for good, becoming a superhero as Spider-Man.
He made his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016's Captain America: Civil War before appearing as the eponymous main protagonist in 2017's Spider-Man: Homecoming. He also appears as a recurring protagonist in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and Avengers Assemble, and as the eponymous main protagonist of Ultimate Spider-Man and Marvel's Spider-Man.
Spider-Man was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
Peter's physical appearance varies from adaptation to adaptation, but more often than not, he is a Caucasian teenage boy with a slim, yet muscular physical build, due to the radioactive spider bite. He has short brown hair and his eye color varies depending on the incarnation. In Ultimate Spider-Man, his typical civilian outfit consists of a white shirt underneath either his light blue or pink button-down shirt, with blue or brown jeans and black sneakers. His outfit in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is similar with light brown jeans and a green shirt over a black T-shirt.
His superhero suit's primary colors are red and blue, with a silhouette of a spider on the chest and the back. The red has a pattern that resembles that of a spider web, with the center of the web being on the topside of his nose. The red and webs only go to the shoulders on the costume. The eyes on the mask are white one-way lenses with a bold black outline.
Powers and abilities
- Spider Physiology: Peter has extraordinary arachnid powers and capabilities which make him really amazing. Peter possesses the proportionate powers of a spider, granted to him from an irradiated Common House Spider (Achaearanea tepidariorum) which bit Peter that was apparently already mutated from prior exposure to certain frequencies of radiation and received a final, lethal dose during Peter's attendance of an exhibition he was present at. The radioactive, complex mutagenic enzymes in the spider's blood that were transferred at the time of the bite triggered numerous, body-wide mutagenic changes within Peter, granting him superhuman strength, speed, toughened flesh, and numerous, arachnid-like powers.
- Superhuman Strength: Peter can approximately lift 10 tons. Peter's strength lets him throw automobiles and most standard heavy objects, he must always pull his punches unless he is fighting someone the same power status as him or greater. Otherwise his blows would prove fatal.
- Superhuman Jumping: As a result of the spider's bite, Peter can jump much higher than a normal human, easily capable of jumping over one building over a street to the next, and enabling him the ability to jump to a height of several stories in a single jump.
- Superhuman Leaping: As a result of the spider's bite, Peter can leap much farther than a normal human, easily capable of leaping from one building over a street to the next, enabling him the ability to leap to several feet in a single leap.
- Superhuman Speed: Peter can run and move at speeds that are beyond the physical limits of the finest human athlete, ultimately capable of running at speeds in excess of at least 200 miles per hour. Peter has shown to be able to catch up to an accelerating car while on foot, but prefers to travel by webs. Peter moves too fast for the normal human eyesight to see or follow at anyway.
- Superhuman Stamina: Peter's advanced musculature produces less fatigue toxins during physical activity than an ordinary human. At his peak, Peter can physically exert himself for several hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him.
- Superhuman Durability: Peter's body is physically tougher and more resistant to injury than the body of a normal human. His body is more resistant to impact forces than anything else. He can withstand great impacts, such as falling from a height of several stories or being struck by a super-humanly strong opponent, that would severely injure or kill a normal human with no discomfort. Also, Peter's muscles and flesh are tougher than a normal human's. On one instance, he survived getting backhanded to the ground by a colossal Ant-Man sustaining only a black eye.
- Superhuman Agility: Peter's agility, balance, and bodily coordination are all enhanced to levels that are beyond the natural physical limits of the finest human athlete. He is 15 times more agile than a regular human. Peter is extraordinarily limber and his tendons and connective tissues are twice as elastic as the average human being's, despite their enhanced strength. He has the combined agility and acrobatic prowess of the most accomplished circus aerialists and acrobats. He can also perform any complicated sequence of gymnastic stunts such as flips, rolls, and springs.
- Regenerative Healing Factor: Peter's metabolism is greater thus allowing him to heal faster than a normal human. He is also more immune to toxins and alcohol and drugs will lose their effects quicker.
- Superhuman Reflexes: Peter's reflexes are enhanced to react at an accelerated rate. In combination with his Spider-Sense, the speed of his reflexes allows him to dodge almost any attack, even direct gunfire, if he is far enough away.
- Superhuman Senses: Peter's senses are heightened to superhuman levels, specifically his sight as he no longer needs his glasses after the spider bite.
- Wall-Crawling: Peter has super strong hairs on his palms and feet that allow him to stick to any surface. This ability appears to be consciously used and is so far limited to Peter's body (especially concentrated in his hands and feet) and another object, with an upper limit of several tons per finger.
- Spider-Sense: Being his most imprint power, Peter possesses the extraordinary ability to sense when danger is about to come before it does; this helps him counter attack the threat before it happens and helps him get ready for what's coming. This power is incorporated in his fighting style. His body begins to produce more adrenaline after the sense is triggered, an extension of the "fight or flight syndrome". A tingling sensation in Peter's skull warns him of danger, where it is coming from and how to avoid it. The stronger the tingling, the more imminent and threatening the danger is. Depending on the incarnation, it can range from being relatively easy to ignore to causing a sensory overload that does him more harm than good in a battle.
- Genius-Level Intellect: Academically gifted, Peter displays an uncanny affinity for science, mathematics, mechanics, biology, and physics. Peter is very intelligent, specifically in chemistry and physics. He is smart enough to perfect his father's webbing formula and to construct working mechanical web-shooters.
- Science Major: Peter is a brilliant individual, with exceptional skill in practically every field of science, and is an excellent inventor. He is an accomplished chemist and physicist. He possesses enough competency in this field to invent his trademark web shooters.
- Skilled Photographer: Peter is a very skilled photographer.
- Master Acrobat: Thanks to his great strength and phenomenal equilibrium, Peter is an excellent athlete, excelling in all gymnastic fields and being able to perform every acrobatic stunt ever performed, including others that can never be performed by even an Olympic acrobat. Due to his superhuman physical abilities, Peter easily surpasses normal acrobats and is able to preform somersaults, flips, spins, cartwheels, etc.
- Hand-To-Hand Combatant: Thanks to Peter's amazing superhuman physiology, acrobatic powers, and spider sense, he is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant using an improvised fighting style derived from his spider-like powers. His moves utilize a mixture of his superhuman strength, speed, agility, reflexes, and web-shooter.
- Web-Slinging: Peter uses his web-shooters to travel by swinging on web-lines. Combined with his spider abilities, he can move at amazing speeds throughout the urban chasms of Manhattan. It is unknown how fast, but he seems to be able cover much of the city in a considerable amount of time.
- Web-Shooters: Peter when he began his career created web-shooters to combo with his persona as Spider-Man. They are able to shoot web fluids at high pressure and speed.
- S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Web-Shooters: In his Ultimate Spider-Man incarnation, Peter received new web-shooters from Nick Fury. It is an enhanced version of his own. Unlike his original web shooters, if it is activated, a small target appears, which can be use to aim more properly. It can also store more web fluid in it and reach farther. It can shoot at a higher pressure and speed. The web-shooter has also a camouflage mode. The web-shooters can also be encased in electricity.
- Web Fluid: Peter's own invention to come with the web shooters. It is used by him to spin web and sling through the city. Peter can modify the fluid after shooting it for certain situation such as using it as a parachute.
- Spider-Signal: A red light emitted from Spider-Man's Utility belt in most media, but in Captain America: Civil War it is emitted in his Web-Shooters by Tony Stark.
Iron Man 2
A young Peter appears in the film as a cameo and his first appearance since Disney bought Marvel. He was present at the Stark Expo when the Hammer Drones attacked the convention. During the attack, Peter, wearing an Iron Man replica mask and gauntlets, is confronted by one of the drones but he stands his ground. Before the drone attacks him, it is blasted down by Iron Man who thanks Peter for his "assist" in the fight.
Spider-Man appears as a teenager who recently-acquired his powers roughly six months before the events of this film. Like prior incarnations, Peter lost his uncle Ben shortly after gaining his powers, which motivated him to use his powers responsibly. Donning a makeshift costume, Peter became a local superhero known as "Spider-Man" to help those in need, though he kept his double-life a secret from his Aunt May.
When Peter appears in the film, he is greeted by Tony Stark at his apartment under the guise of offering the young genius an internship. Due to a background check and research, Tony reveals that he had figured out Peter's secret identity. With this information, Tony enlists Peter to help him take Captain America into custody; Peter complies on the condition that Tony not tell Aunt May about his secret identity. Afterwards, Tony provides Peter with a superhero suit of his own.
In Leipzig, Germany, Spider-Man assembles with Iron Man, Black Widow, War Machine, Vision, and Black Panther to catch up with Captain America, but discover that the Captain has also assembled a team: the Winter Soldier, Falcon, Hawkeye, Ant-Man, and Scarlet Witch. However, Peter is more excited at the chance to be in the company of the Avengers than anything else, let alone have a chance to be one himself.
The two factions of heroes realize that neither side will give in, and are forced to fight one another. Spider-Man is able to hold his own against Falcon and the Winter Soldier, all while babbling excitedly about their abilities and gear, in particular the Winter Soldier's metal arm and Falcon's wings. Later in the fight he goes up against Captain America himself. The inexperienced Peter proves no match for Captain America, but he is impressed by the young hero. He comments that Spider-Man has a good heart, and smiles when he learns that they are both from New York - in Spider-Man's case, Queens, and for the Captain, Brooklyn.
Peter later helps to turn the tide of the fight in favor of Iron Man's side after Ant-Man turns himself into Giant-Man and gives them a run for their money. In a maneuver inspired by "that really old movie The Empire Strikes Back", Spider-Man spins his webs around Giant-Man's legs while Iron Man and War Machine fly over and knock him down. While Peter's plan succeeds, he is injured by Giant-Man in the process. Iron Man sends him home soon after.
Upon returning home, May asks her nephew how he got his bruises. Peter opts for a half-truth, telling her he was in a fight against "Steve from Brooklyn and his huge friend." Once May exits, Peter plays around with his upgraded web shooters, discovering an interesting feature: a Spider-Signal.
Marvel Studios recently announced that they have settled their rights dispute with Columbia Pictures and have partnered with Columbia to produce a Spider-Man movie reboot set in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that was released on July 7, 2017. Tom Holland reprises his role as Spider-Man.
Before sending Peter back home, Tony tells Peter that the Spider-Man suit is his to keep, but cautions the teenager not to go looking for trouble. He advises Peter to keep himself safe, and tells him that should the Avengers need him again, Tony will call him. With that, Peter returns to his life with his aunt in Queens as a student at Midtown School of Science and Technology.
Two months later, Peter spends every afternoon patrolling his neighborhood as Spider-Man, but seldom finds any crimes to stop. This interferes with his student and personal life, and using the cover of having an internship at Stark Industries, quits many of his extra-curricular activities, such as band and academic decathlon. One night, Spider-Man spots a group of ATM robbers armed with high-tech weapons. Spider-Man defeats the criminals, but when he tries to tell Tony about his discovery, he learns that the Avengers are preoccupied with moving into their new headquarters. Peter returns home, where his secret identity is discovered by his closest friend, Ned Leeds.
The following night, Ned and Peter are invited to a party hosted by Peter's crush, a senior named Liz Allan. However, Peter leaves early after spotting a strange explosion nearby. The explosion was caused by Montana, a member of an underground arms dealership that scavenges and sells high-tech gear and weapons to criminals. Peter listens in on Brice trying to sell an arm from an Ultron Sentry to Aaron Davis, but Spider-Man is discovered and the criminals escape. Spider-Man gives chase, but the men get away and Spider-Man encounters the gang's leader, Vulture, who nearly drowns him. Luckily, Peter is rescued by Iron Man, who warns the younger hero to stay out of this.
Hoping to prove himself, Peter doesn't listen to his mentor. He pockets a power source from one of the weapons and plants a tracker on another member of Vulture's crew, Shocker. Discovering that the crew is going to Maryland, Peter rejoins the academic decathlon team for the finals in Washington, DC. With help from Ned, Peter disables the tracker in his suit and the "Training Wheels Protocol", opening up all of the suit's capabilities. Peter is overwhelmed by all of the features and again is bested by the villains. He spends the night locked in the Damage Control vault, causing him to miss the decathlon and learn that the power orb he gave to Ned is explosive. By the time he can warn Ned, it's too late - the device has detonated, leaving Ned, Liz, and several other students trapped in a damaged elevator. With help from his suit's AI, Karen, Spider-Man saves the day.
Upon returning to New York, he tracks down and interrogates Aaron Davis. Davis tells the hero that he doesn't trust Vulture either and wants to protect his family, in particular his young nephew. He reveals that the Vulture intends to sell several crates of technology on the Staten Island Ferry. Spider-Man finds Vulture in his civilian identity of Adrian Toomes about to sell the scavenged weapons to the criminal Mac Gargan. Spider-Man captures Gargan, but Toomes escapes and the weapons malfunction, destroying the boat. Spider-Man struggles to use his webs to keep the ferry together, but to no avail. At the last minute, the ferry and everyone on it is rescued by Iron Man.
Angry, Tony confronts Peter for disobeying him and endangering hundreds of lives, and orders Peter to return the Spider-Man suit. Peter abandons his heroic persona and returns to his life as Peter Parker. Slowly, Peter's life returns to normal and he even works up the courage to ask Liz to the school's Homecoming Dance. However, the night of the dance, Peter learns that Adrian Toomes is Liz's father, who in turn deduces that Peter and the Wall-Crawler are one in the same. Toomes is grateful to Peter for saving Liz in DC, but threatens to kill Peter if he ditches the dance to interfere with his plans. Peter realizes that Toomes plans to intercept a Damage Control plane en route to the Avengers' new headquarters. Peter abandons Liz and puts on his homemade Spider-Man suit to stop Vulture.
With help from Ned, Spider-Man tracks down the Vulture. Toomes tries to get Peter to see the issue from his point of view - he's just a man whose life was ruined by the wealthy elites trying to make ends meet for his wife and daughter. Peter remains adamant, and Vulture buries him alive in a collapsed building. Spider-Man gathers the strength to break free and confront the Vulture on the plane. The fight damages the engines, causing the plane to crash onto Coney Island. Peter realizes that the power core of Vulture's suit is also explosive and saves the man with his webbing, leaving a note for the cops.
After Vulture's arrest, a heartbroken Liz and her mother move away. Peter's friend Michelle Jones replaces her as captain of the academic decathlon team, and Peter is summoned to the new Avengers Compound by Tony Stark. Tony offers Peter a place on the Avengers, but Peter humbly turns him down, intending to remain at street level for the time being. When Peter arrives back in his room, he finds that Tony has returned the Spider-Man suit. Excited, Peter suits up as Spider-Man, just in time for Aunt May to walk in, shocked.
Spider-Man returns in Avengers: Infinity War. While on a school bus en route to MoMA, Parker notices an alien warship hovering over New York, and heads toward the conflict to assist Stark in battling Cull Obsidian, a henchman of Thanos' Black Order. Meanwhile, Stephen Strange is defeated and captured by Black Order member Ebony Maw, and Stark tasks Parker with rescuing Strange. In his attempts to rescue Strange, Parker is pulled onto the fuselage of the warship as it ascends into space. Before Peter can suffocate from the lack of oxygen, Stark summons the Iron Spider Armor, which locates and attaches itself to Parker. Parker boards the ship and assists Stark in locating Strange. The two locate Strange as he is tortured by Maw in an attempt to acquire the Infinity Stone in Strange's possession, the Eye of Agamotto - the Time Stone. At Parker's suggestion, he and Stark utilize a plan inspired by the film Aliens in order to rescue Strange, by distracting Maw and blasting a hole into the side of the ship. Maw is sucked out into the vacuum of space and subsequently killed. Stark and Strange debate how to defeat Thanos, and Stark officially recruits Parker into the Avengers.
The three then pilot the ship to Thanos' homeworld of Titan, where they crash-land and are attacked by several of the Guardians of the Galaxy. A standoff ensues, with Parker held at gunpoint by Peter Quill and Drax the Destroyer held by Stark. The conflict is soon resolved as Stark realizes Quill is from Earth, and all parties are in pursuit of Thanos. As the Avengers and Guardians deduce how defeat Thanos, Strange meditates and concludes that, out of over a million possible realities, there is only one possible future in which they defeat Thanos. Soon after, Thanos himself arrives, and the heroes engage him in battle. They manage to subdue Thanos and nearly succeed in removing Thanos' Infinity Gauntlet. However, whilst in his dazed state, Thanos reveals that, in exchange for the Soul Stone, he had reluctantly sacrificed his daughter Gamora, Quill's lover and fellow Guardian. Enraged, Quill attempts to shoot and kill Thanos, which only serves to knock the Mad Titan back into consciousness. Thanos then overpowers the heroes, and manages to steal the Eye of Agamotto from Strange. As Thanos deduces that the Eye as a fake, Stark attacks him, but is quickly defeated, with Thanos destroying much of his Iron Man armor, stealing his sword and gravely injuring him with it. As Thanos prepares to kill Stark, Strange offers up the real Eye of Agamotto to spare Stark's life. Thanos accepts, adding the Time Stone to the Gauntlet. Quill again attempts to attack Thanos, but Thanos opens a portal and escapes to Wakanda on Earth.
Thanos then takes on the ground forces in Wakanda, comprised of Steve Rogers, T'Challa, Natasha Romanoff, James Rhodes, Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, Wanda Maximoff, Okoye, M'Baku, the Dora Milaje, the Jabari Tribe, Vision, Thor, Groot, and Rocket. As Thanos overpowers them, Maximoff kills her lover, Vision, in an attempt to destroy the Mind Stone embedded in his forehead. She succeeds, but Thanos uses the Time Stone to reverse time, resurrecting Vision. Thanos then rips the Mind Stone from Vision's forehead, killing him again. Thanos adds the Mind Stone to the Gauntlet, completing his collection. Thor immediately attacks him, impaling him with the Stormbreaker, but not lethally. Thanos snaps his fingers with the completed Infinity Guantlet, allowing him to wipe half of life in the universe from existence, killing Barnes, Groot, Maximoff, T'Challa, Wilson, and half of the Wakandan army. On Titan, Drax, Mantis, Quill, and Strange also disintegrate into dust as Nebula, Parker, and Stark watch in horror. Soon, Parker himself begins to slowly disintegrate, resisting the effects of Thanos' actions. Parker can only weep and apologize to Stark before he fades into dust, leaving Stark and Nebula stranded on Titan, with Stark to quietly mourn his young friend's death.
After Hulk reverses the Decimation by using a recreated Infinity Gauntlet Spider-Man, and those who were wiped away by Thanos, were resurrected. Spider-Man joins the other superheroes into battling Thanos' army. Parker has a reunion with his mentor Tony Stark and does his best to keep the Infinity Gauntlet away from Thanos. Spider-Man witnessed Tony using the Infinity Gauntlet to eliminate Thanos and his forces once and for all. Peter shared a tearful goodbye, as his mentor succumbs to his wounds of using all six Infinity at once. Peter and his Aunt May the funeral of Tony Stark, along with all of Stark's friends, in order to pay their respect for the fallen Avenger. After the funeral, Peter returns to Midtown High, where he is reunited with Ned Leeds.
Parker is set to return as the protagonist of Spider-Man: Far From Home. In this film, Parker goes on summer vacation with his classmates to Europe, hoping to spend some time off of being Spider-Man. However, he is soon forced to team up with Nick Fury and Mysterio to fight mysterious forces known as the Elementals.

Spider-Man appears in the Avengers Assemble series, making various appearances and a few cameos in the show.
Peter Parker first appears working at the Daily Bugle when he was assigned by J. Jonah Jameson to take pictures as Betty Brant interviewed Captain America, who was facing public distrust at the time due to being replaced by a Skull beforehand. They were attacked by the Serpent Society, whom were trying to free transported prisoner Madame Hydra. As Captain America was getting beaten by the villains, Peter changed into his Spider-Man outfit and swung in to help him. This caused the two to plummet into a tunnel underneath New York. They kept Madame Hydra in captivity as they were attacked once again by the Serpent Society. Despite being outnumbered, the two managed to beat them and were found by Iron Man and the other Avengers present at the time.
After the battle, Spider-Man was upset to find that Jameson had, once again, made him out to be a menace, with the Daily Bugle front page reading: "Captain America Saves NY from Spider-Man and the Serpent Society". After he bade Captain America farewell, Spider-Man mentioned that he was going to web J. Jonah's mouth shut for that.
Sometime later, after a battle with Kang the Conqueror lead to the timeline being unraveled and the Avengers disappearing, Iron Man ordered JARVIS to activate the New Avengers protocol - a program that would select a new team of Avengers formed from the allies of the originals, meant to take up the team's role if they were ever killed. While Spider-Man swung throughout the city fighting through enemies from various eras, he met up with Wolverine who saved him from a pack of raptors as they were on their way to Stark Tower they have Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Thing, and War Machine to help.
Stark's pre-recorded message told both of them that they needed to take up the job as New Avengers. While these New Avengers were, at first, helpless to stop Kang, Spider-Man was able to form a plan that allowed him to stop Kang's plan and return the original Avengers to the timeline, saving the world in the process. As a reward for his hard work and dedicated service, the team decided to make Spider-Man an honorary reserve member of the Avengers.
Spider-Man is summoned with the rest of Earth's heroes to the battle against Galactus and his heralds. He along with War Machine, Quake, Captain America, and Iron Fist are sent to deal with Terrax and destroy his tower. When Galactus was about to devour the planet, he thought it was all over.

- “Aunt May! Phineas and Ferb are making a crossover!”
- ―Spider-Man’s title sequence speech
Spider-Man made an appearance in the hour-long special in 2013. He first appears web-swinging his way to a battle in New York City between his friends Iron Man, Hulk, and Thor and the group of villains consisting of Red Skull, MODOK, Whiplash, and his nemesis Venom. He began aiding his allies, but their powers are drained from Heinz Doofenshmirtz's Inator. Spider-Man is the first to discover this after he finds out he can no longer crawl on walls. After the team contacts S.H.I.E.L.D., they discover that the beam that drained their powers originated from a satellite made in Danville, specifically from two boys Phineas and Ferb.
With the rest of the team, Spider-Man travels to Danville to seek the boys' help in restoring their powers, as well as meeting an avid fan of them, Candace. The boys take them to their base of operations, S.H.E.D., and help create temporary powers for the team to use, however Candace accidentally messes up with the machine, causing it to give the team each power to the wrong owner. As a result, Spider-Man earns Hulk's strength. The heroes then see a breaking news story about the attack at the Googolplex Mall and decide they need to be there. Phineas and Ferb help out in the Beak suit and transport all the heroes there.
However, when they get to the mall, the heroes' inexperience of using each other's powers causes them to easily fall at the hands of the villains. As Red Skull proclaims the heroes' defeat, Perry enters in a superhero suit and rescues the heroes. Afterwards, Phineas has everyone regroup in S.H.E.D. and come up with a Plan B. In S.H.E.D., where Buford, Baljeet, and Candace are rebuilding the power-duplicating machine, where the heroes' powers had since faded since they do not match the host's structure for the respective powers. Fortunately, the machine's first aspect, recreating Hulk's powers, is almost finished; however, Candace prematurely plugs it in, and Baljeet is zapped, turning into Hulkjeet and smashes the machine, charging out of S.H.E.D.
The team then witnesses on TV that Red Skull now has a Power-Drain-inator he has threatened on the people unless they come and stop him. Despite being powerless, the heroes agree to fight anyway, with Thor explaining that "Being a hero isn't the armor you wear, but the metal in your spirit and the steel in your resolve." Spider-Man promptly ruins the moment with quips.
Spider-Man along with Hulk, Thor, and Iron Man then travel downtown via bus to confront the villains while the villains await the heroes' arrival. When they do show up, they are almost immediately trapped.
Suddenly, Hulkjeet shows up along with The Beak and Perry, while Doofenshmirtz begins firing waffles from his Waffle-inator from the D.E.I. balcony. Spider-Man takes advantage of the distraction to snatch the mundanium finite core from the -inator, and the villains begin chasing the heroes in order to retrieve the core. The heroes quickly gain momentum while keeping the core away.
He then passes the reactor core off to his allies attempting to keep the core away from the villains, causing the core's orbs to break off. However, the orbs are ultimately recovered by the villains who rebuild the core and activate the Power-Drain-inator. But at that moment, the boys' space station lands on the machine, destroying it. Candace and Isabella depart from the station to return the stolen powers, which were revealed to be in the data collection tank, giving the heroes their powers back. As the villains emerge from under the station, the heroes fight against them and emerge victorious.
Once the battle is over, S.H.I.E.L.D. arrives and arrests the villains. As the heroes depart, Spider-Man says that the juice box will be his treat for Phineas next time. The Helicarrier departs as the heroes wave goodbye.

- At the end of Spider-Man: Homecoming, he accidentally revealed his secret identity to his Aunt May. This moment, which also occured in the Ultimate Comics Universe (no relation to the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man), was something that Kevin Feige wanted to bring on-screen, along with the moment Peter is trapped in rubble (which comes from the comics storyline "If this be my Destiny").
- It occurred to Stan Lee that Spider-Man could not naturally shoot webs, and found the idea of web coming out of a guy's hand unpleasant. By giving him mechanical web-shooters that he creates would show how brilliant he is. The best thing about the mechanical web-shooters for Stan Lee was that it inspired story ideas for when Spider-Man finds himself out of webbing when he needs it the most.
- However, there have been in different instances when Spider-Man has been given organic webbing, such as in the Sam Raimi film trilogy, and in the comics during the event "Changes" (which happened sometime after the first Sam Raimi movie).
