SPIDER-MAN

Real Name: Peter Parker (see comments)

Occupation: College student

Group Membership: None

Affiliations: None

Enemies: Unidentified First National Bank security guard

Known Relatives: None 

Aliases: None

Base of Operations: Manhattan, New York, USA

First Appearance: Crazy Magazine I#79 (October 1981)

Powers/Abilities: Spider-Man presumably possessed the superhuman strength of his counterparts in other realities, as he was apparently able to rip the doors off a security van. Given he was easily captured by a normal guard, he may have lacked the agility, wall-crawling and webbing of his counterparts though.

Weight: 167 lbs. (by approximation)
Eyes: Brown (probably)
Hair: Brown (probably)

History: (Crazy Magazine I#79) - A real college student (and thus lacking the strong moral code of his 616 counterpart), Spider-Man struggled to pay his tuition and he turned to crime. When he attempted to rob a First National Bank security van, he was apprehended for his troubles.

Comments: Created by J. Marc DeMatteis and Tony Tallarico.

    This Spider-Man appeared as a single-panel joke character in a Crazy Magazine feature "If Comic Book Characters Behaved Like Real People." The other featured, non-Marvel, characters were Beetle Bailey, Dick Tracy, Dondi, the Bumsteads and Broom-Hilda.

    Given we only had a single panel to work with, it's possible that it wasn't Peter Parker under the mask, or that he had no powers at all. However, this was in the 1970s, before it became common to have anyone else being Spider-Man under the mask, so I've ASSumed that he largely does line up with his 616 counterpart, except for the differences suggested by the panel itself. Hence he has physical stats, secret identity and base of operation matching the 616 version. Since he apparently didn't get the message that with great power comes great responsibility, I'm not ASSuming he had Aunt May or Uncle Ben in his life.
