Spider-Man (alias Peter Parker) 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.
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.
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
The variant of Spider-Man used in the Spider-Man 1 sub-theme: 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 eyes printed on it.
Spider-Man 2 Costume
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. His spider symbols on the front and back are also different.
As a 4 Plus Figure
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.
Spider-Man is the same design as his previous variants, but has been altered in order 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 bottom 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.
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 exactly the same as Venom's torso.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Suit
He has a red head printed with the same web design as the Ultimate Spider-Man but slightly smaller white eyes, with a hexagonal pattern in the eyes. The torso is red and printed with a larger web design, a larger spider whose bottom legs extend to the end of the torso, the dark blue triangles on either side with a sequence design, and the suits cut on his body. He has dark blue arms and red hands. He has dark blue hips and red legs that are printed with blue short with the sequences type design that forms red boots.
This version is identical to the Ultimate Spider-Man, but it uses a red hip piece.
In the style of the theme, this Spider-Man has short legs and a simplified, yet exaggerated design. His head is very similar to his Ultimate Spider-Man variant, but his right eye is narrowed in concentration. His torso has a more basic version of the previous variant.
His appearance is identical to the Super Heroes sets he appears in. His black symbiote suit is playable in a DLC.
A Future Foundation and Superior Suit are included in the game.
His abilities include Spider-Sense, which allows him to detect hidden object, shoot webbing, swing on webbing, and pull on objects with webbing. He can also climb on special walls.
Peter Parker was a successful student at Midtown 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 science museum, he was bitten by a genetically altered spider. Soon he started to develop superhuman abilities, including the ability to climb walls, as well as the proportionate strength of a spider (effectively giving him "super strength"), web spinning and the ability to sense 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 his crush, 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 stole 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.
After being Spider-Man for a year, Nick Fury offered to train him to become the "ultimate" version of himself. 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 Coulson as the principal. He led a team previously led by Deadpool and 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, and Electro, as well as teamed up with other Avengers, including Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, The Hulk, Wolverine, the Thing, Dr. Strange, and Hawkeye to take down more powerful foes, such as the Living Laser, Loki, Sabretooth, Mesmero, or Dr. Doom. When Spider-Man moved to Boston (he was sick of how New York was treating him) for a weekend, he dealt with the Boston Terrorisers, 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 apologized and he turned into a hero).
The Green Goblin later returned and inject Peter Parker with the Goblin serum which turned him into Carnage. Iron Fist had to briefly take on the role of Spider-Man to avoid suspicion. Peter was able to shake the symbiote 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 teammates also started to live with him and Aunt May after the Green Goblin destroyed the Helicarrier, until the Tricarrier was built and they started to live there aboard it.
After Spider-Man saved his team and stopped the Goblin from turning New York City into Goblins, he was asked by Iron Man, Thor and Captain America to be a part of the Avengers.
Spider-Man arrives to the battle at Grand Central Station and saves the Hulk and Iron Man from Sandman and helps defeat him. Fury tells him what there's always a place in their operation for a hero like him, but he declines.
He later arrive to the scene after the fight between Captain America and Mr. Fantastic and Doc Ock spills from the Baxter Building into Times Square, and helps stop him, but they fail to retrieve the cosmic brick that S.H.I.E.L.D. sent to the Baxter Building for study after the fight between Sandman and Abomination, and it was taken to Oscorp by the Green Goblin.
Spider-Man went with Hawkeye and Black Widow to Oscorp to retrieve the cosmic brick from the Green Goblin but had to deal with Venom instead.
Spider-Man was later asked to defeat Galactus ultimately with all of the heroes and villains.
Peter Benjamin Parker is a high school student and a superhero with spider-like abilities, fighting crime as his alter ego Spider-Man.
After receiving his abilities from a spider's bite, Parker chose to protect Queens from crime with his powers, juggling his superhero duties and the demands of his high school life. Despite his best efforts to keep his identity secret from the world, he was found and recruited by Tony Stark in the Avengers Civil War, gaining a new suit and technology in exchange.
Following the Clash of the Avengers, Stark allowed Parker to keep the suit in his operations as Spider-Man. Parker forged a reputation for himself in New York City and became a well-known local neighborhood hero. He later stumbled into a group of criminals led by the Vulture, who were creating advanced weapons from stolen Chitauri technology, and went on a quest to defeat their leader in order to prove to Stark that he was worthy of being an Avenger. Only after defeating the Vulture did Parker discover the true responsibilities of a hero — so he declined an offer of membership in the Avengers in order to continue "helping the little guy" until he's ready.

Notes / Trivias
- 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.
- In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, he, Professor X and Silver Surfer are voiced by James Arnold Taylor, who also voices Vastus and Berix in BIONICLE: The Legend Reborn and Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
- His Civil War variant on his torso has a different symbol from the movie due to the concept art and to the CGI prototype.
- In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 his costume is based off his Marvel Cinematic Universe one, he's good friends with Ms. Marvel, White Tiger, Cloak, Dagger, The Runaways, and Nova. He's also aware of Crystal's Romantic attachment to him.
