Peter Parker was a bookish youth who lived with his aunt and uncle, and was often ridiculed by the students at his high school. During a science demonstration, a spider that had been bathed in radiation bit Parker on the hand. From the irradiated spider, Parker gained the proportionate strength and speed of a spider. Originally using his powers for personal gain, Spider-Man dedicated his life to crime-fighting when his uncle was murdered by a burglar that Peter could have apprehended earlier. 

Keeping his identity secret, Spider-Man has never hesitated to put his life on the line for the people of New York. In his civilian identity, Peter works as a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle, taking pictures of himself in action. He is also married to supermodel Mary Jane Watson, who has managed to come to terms with her husbands dangerous profession. Despite public opinion that he is a menace, Spider-an continues to fight for the side of good whenever he is needed. Venom is his arch-nemesis.

Arguably the most iconic comic book character ever... Spider-Man's fighting game debut was a homerun grand slam by Capcom. Thanks to the brilliant 2D animators and sprite-artists working at Capcom in the mid 90's, games like Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel Vs. Capcom changed fighting games and comic book characters, bringing them together in timeless dream match-ups that aged like fine wine.

Spider-Man's animations in Capcom fighting games truly set the bar in the 2D fighting game realm. "THIS is how superheroes should animate in fighting games." ~Capcom. (Mic drop.) Nobody argued. Not only does Spidey look great in motion, Capcom's 2D version of Spider-Man basically brought together all the best elements of 2D fighting game characters into one. He's got awesome agility & movement, sick combos, and cool special moves. What's not to love? For fans of "fast-moving" characters in fighting games, Spider-Man is a must learn!
