Peter Parker

Prime Marvel Universe

Spider-Man's powers and abilities

Peter can cling to most surfaces, has superhuman strength (now capable of lifting 20 tons optimally) and is roughly 18 times more agile than a regular human. The combination of his acrobatic leaps and web-slinging enables him to travel rapidly from place to place. His spider-sense provides an early warning detection system linked with his superhuman kinesthetics, enabling him the ability to evade most any injury, provided he doesn't cognitively override the autonomic reflexes. His powers have recently been enhanced after his transformation from the Queen to include a stronger psychic alignment with his environment, especially with other arachnids and insects. He can now create organic webs from his wrists, limited by his body's health and nutrition. Various glands within his arms can produce different types of webs - from drag lines, to sticky nets, to cocoons. Whereas his artificial webs typically decayed within 2 hours, his organic webs can be more persistent (depending on the thickness and type of web) such that web lines may last a week and web sacs may last for months or more. Recent new abilities resulting from his rebirth after battling Morlun include night vision, increased sensory awareness via vibratory patterns transmitted on his web lines, and twin retractable stingers within his forearms. He can use the hairs on his body to detect subtle changes in the wind. His skin's adhesive ability, previously concentrated mainly on his palms and soles of his feet, is now more greatly present throughout his body including his face (previously used to prevent undesirable mask removal) and back.
