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

April 27’s The Amazing Spider-Man #1 is full of mysteries and set pieces for future stories, but one of the more bizarre twists is the children’s entry into Peter Parker’s life, and it would be too much of a spoiler to say more. Enter here.

In fact, it is too early to speculate on the actual origins of these children, although The Amazing Spider-Man screenwriter Zeb Wells and lead artist John Romita, Jr. ) to a specific address.

We can’t say for sure who the kids in The Amazing Spider-Man are, and we won’t name one or more characters associated with them here (though we’ll do so in a spoiler story if you dare).

But Peter Parker himself has been a father in comics before, both in the Marvel Universe and in famous alternate reality stories from the multiverse, some of which have led (pun intended) to long-term “variant” characters. They took their own lives and popular followers.

The three Spider-Kids have been an important part of Spider-Man lore over the years, but please note that we’re not claiming this is an exhaustive list, nor are we claiming that there’s any connection between Peter Parker’s previous children, or even Claims that Peter Parker is or could be the father of the kids in The Amazing Spider-Man #1.

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

Without further ado or further disclaimer this list is for entertainment and viewing only, let’s meet Peter Parker’s kids.

May Parker, the only daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane, has been confirmed to have grown up in Marvel’s main universe (no, we didn’t mention anything about the new baby…)

Unfortunately, he died prematurely in the reality of Earth-616. But in an alternate reality to the popular MC2 comic series that began in the late ’90s, May Parker grew up as Spider-Girl, the series’ protagonist and remains a cult darling to this day.

MC2 is based on the super popular What If…? #105, showing a glimpse into the future of the Marvel Universe, with the children, descendants and successors of popular Marvel heroes and villains in the spotlight, the concept is carried over into the larger picture.

May ‘Mayday’ Parker started out as Peter: sneaking around as Spider-Girl to hide her crime-fighting activities from her disapproving parents, who eventually accepted May’s place as Spider-Girl. “Mayday” also took over his father’s torch as the quintessential teenage hero, working hard to become a superhero in his schoolwork and star on his high school basketball team (which earned him the nickname “Mayday”).

Her role in Marvel Comics continued to grow over the years, and soon Spider-Girl became the only lasting remnant of Earth-982 MC2 reality in the Marvel series, and her title Spider-Girl was finally relaunched as The Amazing Spider-Girl . Then there’s the spectacular Spider-Girl, as it’s been canceled more than once at the behest of fans.

May Parker has another famous “variant” in Earth-X storyline reality, where she hosts the Venom symbiote.

Anna-May ‘Annie’ Parker is the real-life daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson called Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows (Earth-18119, to be exact), a world where Peter and MJ were never apart. , instead, they not only had a daughter together, but they also became a family trio of superheroes together.

The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Oath begins as a simulcast of 2015’s Secret War, which destroyed and rebuilt Marvel’s multiverse. But its popularity has seen the title reboot as its own standalone series The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Oath After Secret War.

In the world of Renew Your Vows, Annie Parker developed her spinning abilities as a child and beat half of the evil six in elementary school.

When Peter and MJ realized that Annie was too arrogant and cheeky to stop being a superhero because she had proven it (like her father), they developed a protective suit for her and named her for “Spider-Man”.

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

Interestingly, Marvel also showed some different trailers for the Annie Parker timeline. She was codenamed AMP (based on her initials Anna-May Parker) in the limited series Secret Wars that originally introduced her. And in another possible future, it suggests she could be another version of Spider-Girl.

In the limited series Spider-Man: Bloodlines, created by film director JJ Abrams and his sons Henry Abrams and Sara Pichelli, Peter Parker’s son becomes his successor, not his daughter. Named after Peter’s Uncle Ben (of course), this Spider-Kid actually became Spider-Man early in his life, under tragic circumstances.

In other words, little Ben Parker not only inherited his father’s spider abilities, but also got a dose of “old” Parker luck.

Spider-Man: Bloodlines begins when Peter Parker can’t save Mary Jane from the main villain Pale, while Ben watches. Traumatized and nearly killed in the fight, Peter Parker became discouraged and nearly gave up being Spider-Man.

If you can believe it, teenage Ben Parker will soon find himself disguised as his father’s Spider-Man, furtively fighting crime, just like the inescapable nature of the spider-driven Parker kids.

While the rest of the story doesn’t go as expected, Ben Parker fully inhabits Spider-Man’s cape in Earth-29320’s reality.

So there you have it: The three most famous children of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson.

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

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

April 27’s Amazing Spider-Man #1 is packed with its share of mysteries and set-ups for future stories, but one of the strangest twists involves children coming into Peter Parker’s life – and to say anything more would be far too much of a spoiler to get into here.
In fact, it’s a little too early to even speculate on the actual parentage of the children in question, even 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 who show up in Amazing Spider-Man actually belong to, and won’t name the character or characters they’ve been linked to here (though we will in our spoiler story – if you dare). 
But Peter Parker himself has been a parent before in comics, both in the mainstream Marvel Universe and in prominent alt-reality stories from around the Multiverse, some of which have birthed (pun intended) long-running ‘Variant’ characters who have taken on lives and popular followings of their own. 
Three Spider-Kids have been prominent parts of Spidey-lore over the years – though keep in mind we’re hardly claiming this to be an exhaustive list, nor are we claiming any connection between the children of Peter Parker who have previously appeared, or even stating that Peter Parker is or could be the father of the kids who appear in Amazing Spider-Man #1.
(Are the lawyers satisfied? Let’s run this clause by the legal department).
Without further preamble or any more exhaustive disclaimers that this list is just for the sake of fun and observation, let’s meet Peter Parker’s kids.
May Parker

May Parker is the only child that Peter Parker and Mary Jane are confirmed to have parented in the mainstream Marvel Universe (and no, we’re not alluding to anything about the new kids…)
Tragically, she died in infancy in the Earth-616 reality. But in the alt-reality of the popular MC2 line of comics which kicked off in the late ’90s, May Parker grew up to become Spider-Girl, the line’s lead character and a cult favorite to this day.
MC2 spun out of the extra-popular What If…? #105, which showed a look forward into the future of the Marvel Universe, with the children, descendants, and successors of popular Marvel heroes and villains taking the spotlight, a concept that carried over into the larger line.

May ‘Mayday’ Parker started out just like Peter – sneaking around as Spider-Girl to hide her crime fighting activities from her disapproving parents, who eventually embraced May’s place as Spider-Girl. ‘Mayday’ also took up her dad’s torch as a prototypical teen hero, trying to balance being a superhero with her schoolwork and being the star of the high school basketball team (which earned her the ‘Mayday’ nickname).
Over the years, her role in Marvel Comics grew larger, and before long, Spider-Girl was the only lasting remnant of the MC2 reality of Earth-982 in the Marvel line, with her Spider-Girl title eventually relaunching as Amazing Spider-Girl and then Spectacular Spider-Girl as it was saved from cancellation by fan demand more than once.
May Parker has another well-known ‘Variant’ of her own in the reality of the story Earth-X, where she’s the host of the Venom symbiote.
Annie Parker

Anna-May ‘Annie’ Parker is the daughter of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson in the reality of the title Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows (Earth-18119, to be exact) – a world where Peter and MJ never split up, and instead went on to not only have a daughter together but become a superhero family trio together.
Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows started as a tie-in to 2015’s Secret Wars, which destroyed and rebuilt Marvel’s Multiverse. But its popularity led to the title getting a relaunch as its own independent Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows ongoing series after Secret Wars concluded.
In the world of Renew Your Vows, Annie Parker develops her spider-powers in childhood, defeating half the Sinister Six while in elementary school.

With Peter and MJ realizing Annie is too strong-willed and too bold to stop from being a superhero now that she’s gotten a taste of it (just like her dad), they develop a protective suit for her and dub her ‘Spiderling’.
In a surprise twist, Mary Jane of Earth-18119 also becomes a superhero after Peter uses his scientific genius to develop a suit for her that mimics his own powers, under the codename ‘Spinnerette’. 
Interestingly enough, Marvel has also shown a few different leaps forward into Annie Parker’s own timeline. In the original Secret Wars tie-in limited series in which she was introduced, she was shown to take on the codename AMP (based on her initials, Anna-May Parker). And in another possible future, she was shown to potentially become another version of Spider-Girl.
Ben Parker

In the limited series Spider-Man: Bloodline, co-written by film director JJ Abrams and his son Henry Abrams with art from Sara Pichelli, Peter Parker’s son becomes his successor rather than his daughter. Named after Peter’s Uncle Ben (naturally), this Spider-Kid actually becomes Spider-Man fairly early on in his life, under tragic circumstances.
In other words, lil’ Ben Parker doesn’t just inherit his dad’s spider-powers, he also gets a dose of the ‘ol’ Parker Luck’.
Spider-Man: Bloodline kicks off with Peter Parker failing to save Mary Jane from the series’ main villain, Cadaverous, as Ben looks on. Traumatized and nearly killed by the fight, Peter Parker becomes despondent and all but gives up on being Spider-Man.

If you can believe it, the teen Ben Parker quickly finds himself taking up his father’s costume as Spider-Man himself, sneaking around and fighting crime as is the inevitable nature of Parker kids with Spider-powers.
Though the rest of the story doesn’t quite go as one might expect, it winds up 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 kids of Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson. 
At least, that we know of – and no, we’re not hinting at anything. 
We promise…
