Spider-Man’s children: The Marvel Comics history of Spider-Kids

April 27’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 is full of mysteries and settings for future stories, but one of the weirder twists involves the kids coming into Peter Parker’s life, and to say anything else would be too spoiler to go into here. .

In fact, it’s too early to speculate on the actual parentage of the children in question, though Amazing Spider-Man writer Zeb Wells and lead artist John Romita, Jr. are certainly pointing readers in a specific direction. . (for now) .

We can’t say for sure who the kids featured in Amazing Spider-Man really belong to, and we won’t name the character or characters they’ve been linked to here (although we will in our spoiler story, if you dare). ).

But Peter Parker himself has been a father in the comics before, both in the main Marvel Universe and in prominent alternate reality stories from the multiverse, some of which spawned (pun intended) long-running “Variant” characters that have come to life. and popular followers. of yours

Three Spider-Kids have been prominent parts of Spidey-lore over the years, though keep in mind that we don’t claim this to be an exhaustive list, and we’re not claiming any connection between them. Peter Parker’s children who have already appeared, or even claim that Peter Parker is or could be the father of the children featured in Amazing Spider-Man #1.

(Are the lawyers satisfied? Let’s enforce this clause through the legal department.)

Without further ado or further clarification that this list is just for fun and viewing, let’s meet Peter Parker’s children.

May Parker is the only daughter Peter Parker and Mary Jane are confirmed to have fathered in the main Marvel Universe (and no, we’re not hinting at any new children…)

Tragically, he died in infancy in the reality of Earth-616. But in the alternate reality of the popular MC2 line of comics that debuted in the late ’90s, May Parker became Spider-Girl, the main character of the line and a cult favorite to this day.

MC2 was born out of the hugely popular What If…? #105, which showed a look into the future of the Marvel Universe, with the children, descendants, and successors of popular Marvel heroes and villains in the spotlight, a concept that was continued in a broader vein.

May ‘Mayday’ Parker started out as Peter, sneaking off as Spider-Girl to hide her crime-fighting activities from her disapproving parents, who eventually took May’s place as Spider-Girl. “Mayday” also took on his father’s mantle as the prototypical teen hero, trying to balance being a superhero with his schoolwork and being the star of the basketball team. high school (earning her the nickname “Mayday”).

Over the years, her role in Marvel Comics expanded, and before long, Spider-Girl was the only enduring remnant of the Earth-982 MC2 reality in the Marvel line, with her Spider-Girl title eventually revived. as Amazing Spider-Girl. then Spectacular Spider-Girl, as she was saved from cancellation by fan demand more than once.

May Parker has another well-known “variant” in reality from the Earth-X story, where she is the host of the Venom symbiote.

Anna-May ‘Annie’ Parker is the daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson in the reality show titled Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows (Earth-18119, to be exact), a world where Peter and MJ have never been apart, and instead, not only did they have a daughter together, but they became a family trio of superheroes together.

Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows began as a tie-in to 2015’s Secret Wars, which destroyed and rebuilt the Marvel Multiverse. But its popularity saw the title revived as its own standalone series Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows after Secret Wars ended.

In the world of Renew Your Vows, Annie Parker develops her spider powers as a child, defeating half of the Sinister Six in elementary school.

When Peter and MJ realize that Annie is too stubborn and forward to stop being a superhero now that she’s proven it (just like her father), they develop a protective suit for her and nickname her “Spiderling”.

In an unexpected twist, Mary Jane of Earth-18119 also becomes a superhero after Peter uses his scientific genius to develop a costume for her that mimics her own powers, codenamed “Spinnerette”.

Interestingly, Marvel also showed off a few different trailers for Annie Parker’s timeline. In the original Secret Wars limited series in which she appeared, she was shown to go by the codename AMP (based on her initials, Anna-May Parker). And in a possible alternate future, she was shown to be able to become another version of Spider-Girl.

In the Spider-Man: Bloodline limited series, co-written by director JJ Abrams and his son Henry Abrams with art by Sara Pichelli, Peter Parker’s son becomes his successor instead of his daughter. Named for Peter’s Uncle Ben (naturally), this Spider-Kid actually becomes Spider-Man quite early in his life, under tragic circumstances.

In other words, little Ben Parker not only inherits his father’s spider powers, but also gets a dose of “old” Parker Luck.

Spider-Man: Bloodline begins with Peter Parker failing to save Mary Jane from the series’ main villain, Cadaverous, as Ben watches. Traumatized and almost killed by the fight, Peter Parker becomes discouraged and almost gives up being Spider-Man.

If you can believe it, teenage Ben Parker soon finds himself taking on his father’s guise as Spider-Man himself, sneaking around and fighting crime, as is the inevitable nature of the spider-powered Parker kids.

While the rest of the story doesn’t play out as expected, it ends with Ben Parker fully inhabiting the mantle of Spider-Man in his reality of Earth-29320.

So there you have it, the three most notable children of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson.

At least, we know that, and no, we’re not implying anything.

We promise…
