Spider-Man is a minifigure based on the character from the Spider-Man films and TV series. The minifigure first appeared in Studios, then reappeared in its own theme, Spider-Man, and returned in the Super Heroes theme in 2012 and 2013.
Over the years, Spider-Man has appeared in various sets, and several different versions of his minifigure have been produced. The ones in the old theme all reflect his appearance in the movie continuity. The Super Heroes variation appears as his Ultimate Spider-Man tv show version and as him in the black suit.
Studios Costume Edit
Spider-Man's first appearance in his classic suit, this variation appeared only in the Studios sets 1376 Spider-Man Action Studio, and 10075 Spider-Man Action Pack. It is nearly identical the the later Spider-Man 1 Costume, except for the addition of a red neck bracket on his back, presumably to attach web to.
Wrestling Costume Edit
This variation was originally intended to appear in two sets, 1375 Wrestling Scene and 4850 Spider-Man's First Chase, however, 1375 was never released. The variation is taken from the sequence in the movie Spider-Man where Peter Parker fights in a wrestling match as "Spider-Man" to raise some money. In this variant he wears a long-sleeved shirt with a complicated spider design printed on it, and blue pants. This costume, unlike any of his other variants, shows Peter Parker's eyes and eyebrows, which are a light brown.
Spider-Man 1 Costume Edit
The variant of Spider-Man used in the Spider-Man 1 subtheme blue pants with red hips with webbing printed on them, a red and blue torso with a web design printed on it in silver, and a spider in black, blue arms, and red hands. His head is red, with silver webbing and eyeslits printed on it.
Spider-Man 2 Costume Edit
For Spider-Man 2, Spidey's costume was updated once again. Now his legs, arms, and a small section on his torso were dark blue, although, like previous versions, he still has a red torso, head, and hips.
As a 4 Plus Figure Edit
When Spider-Man (4 Plus) was released in 2004, it required a special 4+ Figure Spider-Man. In this incarnations, Spider-Man was exactly the same as his Spider-Man 2 version, except for the facts that his hips were dark blue, that he was all one piece, and has differently moulded limbs.
Ultimate Spider-Man Edit
Spider-Man is the same design as his previous variants, but changed to represent a more cartoony version. He has a red head without any head accessories to represent his mask, and it is printed with a web design and large, white eyes. His torso is blue instead of red with red printed on. The web design is black rather than silver, his black spider logo is smaller, and printing to show the suit's cut against his body is added. Like previous verions he has back printing on his head and back.His head has the same design but in black. His back printing is mostly blue with a large red spider and the top and bottem is red with black webbing, also printing is added to show the cut of the suit on his back.He has blue hips, legs, and arms with red hands. Spider-Man comes with a white rope to represent webbing.
Black Suit Edit
This SDCC-exclusive version of Spider-Man is completely black and is based off its Ultimate Spider-Man TV series appearance. The minifigure only has two areas of printing: the head and the torso. The head is decorated only with large, plain white eyes, and the torso details his spider logo, which covers most of the torso. The torso is also used for Venom
His appearance is identical to the Super Heroes sets he appears in. His abilities are acrobatics, Spider-Sense, and to shoot webbing.
Peter Parker was a successful student at his local High School. Even though he was a brilliant student, he was never very popular, and was often bullied. When his high school went on a field trip to a spider museum, he was bitten by a genetically altered spider. Soon he started to develop superhuman abilities, including the ability to climb walls and shoot webs from his hands, as well as the proportionate strength of a spider (effectively giving him "super strength"), and the ability to sense things impending danger, which he calls his "spider sense".
Peter's family has never been very rich, and he decided to use his powers to earn money by entering a wrestling competition. With his winnings, he intended to impress the love of his life, Mary Jane Watson, with a car.
His uncle decided to drive him to the match, thinking he is going to a library to study. After Peter won the match, he was not paid the money he was promised. As Peter was leaving the building, a criminal ran in and stoles all the money. He exited the building the same way Peter does. Peter had the chance to stop him, but wanted revenge for not being payed, so he let the criminal escape. Later that night, that same robber killed Peter's Uncle Ben. After this incident, Peter decided that he would use his powers with responsibility, and takes the name of Spider-Man.
Later in his career, Spider-Man battled against a variety of criminals and super villains including the Green Goblin, who seemingly died when impaled by his own goblin glider, and Doc Ock, a scientist who went mad after four electrical arms were attached to his body. Doc Ock was killed when he destroyed his creation, an artificial sun, after it went out of control.
Ultimate Spider-Man Edit
In the Ultimate universe, he was trained by Nick Fury, along with the other members of his team, to become the "ultimate" version of himself and to be a member of the Avengers. He was in high school along with Flash Thompson, a classmate who bullied him despite being a huge fan of Spider-Man, Harry Osborn and Mary Jane, along with the alter egos of his teammates with Agent Phil Coulson as the principal. He led a team consisting of Nova, Iron Fist, Power Man, and White Tiger. He fought his own rouges gallery, which included Sandman, the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Venom, Beetle, the Lizard, the Rhino, Kraven the Hunter, Carnage, Grizzly, Man-Wolf and Electro, as well as teamed up with other Avengers, including Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Wolverine. and Hawkeye to take down more powerful foes, such as the Living Laser, Loki, Sabretooth, or Dr. Doom. He also fought the Sinister Six, which included Doc Ock, The Lizard, The Rhino, Beetle, Electro, and Kraven the Hunter. When Spider-Man moved Boston (he was sick of how New York was treating him) for a weekend, he dealt with the Boston Terroriers, which included Salem's Witch, Slam Adams, the Plymouth Rocker, and their leader the Steel Spider (a kid named Ollie, who made all Spidey's Boston tech and wanted to be Spidey's sidekick, but Spider-Man said no and never thanked him for the tech, and Ollie wanted revenge on Spider-Man, until Spidey apologizied and he turned into a hero).
The Green Goblin later returned and bonded Peter Parker with the Carnage symbiote(made from the Goblin serum and the Venom symbiote) which turned him into Carnage. Iron Fist had to breifly take on the role of Spider-Man to avoid suspicion. Peter was able to shake the sybiote off with the help of Harry Osborn who turned back into Venom. The Venom symboite ended up in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody.
The origins of his powers was due to a spider bite. Peter was on a class field trip touring Oscorp's spider lab when a radioactive spider bit him. The bite gave him most of his powers and his "Spider-Sense", but he developed his web shooters on his own. The shooters were later upgraded by S.H.I.E.L.D. , also given to him were a communicator watch and from Dr. Curt Connors, the Spider-Cycle. Tony Stark took an immediate liking to Peter and built him the Iron Spider suit, which had the basic capabilities as the Iron Man suit but modified for Peter's use as Spider-Man.
His teamates also started to live with him and Aunt May after the Goblin destroyed the Helicarrier, until the Helicarrier was rebuilt and they started to live there aboard it.
LEGO Marvel Super HeroesEdit
He is one of the heroes Nick Fury calls upon to help fight Loki and Galactus. He saves The Hulk and Iron Man from Sandman and helps them stop him. Fury tells him what there's always a place in their operation for a hero like him, but he declines. He then leaves.

At the back of the 6873 Spider-Man's Doc Ock Ambush instruction book, it shows Spider-Man with arm and leg printing, and a different design for the head, suggesting this was the original idea for the Super Heroes variant of him. This version resembles his appearance in some comics.
