(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter II: Farewell, Spider-Man" (fb) - BTS) - Peter Parker was the godson of J. Jonah Jameson.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones" (fb) - BTS) - A multi-billionaire who owned several companies, including one that designed security systems, Earth-31198's Peter Parker had an easy life and things always seemed to work out for him as the heroic Spider-Man. At some point, he had a sophisticated suit of armor built, adding in wrist lasers of his own design, and he became known as the Armored Spidey.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter II: Farewell, Spider-Man" (fb) - BTS) - The Armored Spidey was publicly adored, loved and known as Peter Parker. At some point, Peter Parker proposed to his girlfriend Gwen Stacy and she became his fiancee. So the two would never be apart, the Armored Spidey designed a heartbeat tracker for Gwen so she could track his location at any time. He also hired Wilson Fisk as his personal lawyer.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones" (fb) - BTS) - Not long after acquiring a giant Spider-Robot, the Armored Spidey was tested by Reality-92131's Madame Web to see if he was up to the task of stopping the destructive Spider-Carnage of Earth-98311. Unaware of why he was being tested, the arrogant Armored Spidey failed to prove to Madame Web that he had the capabilities of leading a team against Spider-Carnage.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter II: Farewell, Spider-Man" (fb) - BTS) - Publicly praised, Peter Parker had a science foundation built by the city in his honor.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones") - After being transported to Earth-98311, where he was recruited into the Multiversal Spider-Men group, the Armored Spidey waited until Reality-92131's Beyonder transported his reality's Spider-Man into the Spider-Men's base of operations. Upon seeing Spider-Man-92131, the arrogant Armored Spidey sarcastically expressed his skepticism of Spider-Man-92131 and announced that he should be the one in charge of the Spider-Men as the "real" Spider-Man. When Spider-Man-92131 proclaimed himself the real Spider-Man and removed his mask to reveal himself as Peter Parker, the other members of the Spider-Men did the same to prove that they too were all Peter Parker. Lifting his own faceplate to reveal himself as Peter Parker, the Armored Spidey informed Spider-Man-92131 that Madame Web-92131 had told them they were all from different parallel realities. Following a brief explanation from each of the Spider-Men on how they were the same but different, the Armored Spidey watched as Scarlet Spider-98311 recounted his life story and how his reality's Peter Parker had become the insane Spider-Carnage. Upon hearing the story of Spider-Carnage, the Armored Spidey immediately demanded to know what the other Spider-Men's stake in Earth-98311 was. The Beyonder responded by showing the Spider-Men a glimpse of Earth-33489, a reality in which Spider-Carnage successfully magnified the effects of a Matter Disintegrator Bomb to destroy his entire planet and eventually, other realities as well. Learning that the Spider-Men would have to find a way to stop Earth-98311's Spider-Carnage from accomplishing this goal and that Spider-Man-92131 had been chosen to lead the Spider-Men, the Armored Spidey immediately objected and tried to argue but Madame Web quickly silenced him and showed the Spider-Men how Spider-Man-92131 had proven himself in the Beyonder's Secret Wars. As the Spider-Men prepared for their mission, the Powerless Spider-Man of Earth-38119 tried to insist he accompany them on the mission but the Armored Spidey brashly commented "No way." and Spider-Man-92131 agreed that it would be too dangerous for the Powerless Spider-Man to join them.
Soon after swinging into action, the Armored Spidey accompanied the Spider-Men to the Kingpin-98311's Crime Central headquarters, where he complained about the group sneaking in through the front door when they could all swing through the air. Inside, Spider-Man-92131 suggested they disable the security systems and the Armored Spidey proclaimed that it should be no problem for him, as one of the companies he owned designed security systems. Surprised, Spider-Man-92131 questioned the Armored Spidey's claims of owning multiple companies and the Armored Spidey bragged that, in his reality, he was a multi-billionaire and asked if Spider-Man-92131 also was. Spider-Man-92131 dodged the question and suggested they keep moving and Octo-Spidey-11983 was soon surprised to see the Armored Spidey disabling security systems with a wrist laser. The Armored Spidey bragged that he had designed the wrist lasers himself and expressed wishes that he had been able to bring his giant Spider-Robot on this mission. Spider-Man-92131 was briefly surprised to hear that the Armored Spidey owned a giant Spider-Robot before the Kingpin's guards arrived. During the ensuing scuffle, the Armored Spidey was briefly downed by two guards that the Scarlet Spider quickly took out with Impact Webbing. Impressed by the Impact Webbing, the recovering Armored Spidey wondered why he had not thought of Impact Webbing. As the battle progressed, the impulsive Armored Spidey fired a gas missile at the Hobgoblin, uncaring how the gas might affect his teammate Octo-Spidey. Spider-Man-92131 immediately berated the Armored Spidey for acting so rashly but the Armored Spidey told Spider-Man-92131 to relax, as things always had a way of working out. Spider-Man-92131 accused the Armored Spidey of being foolhardy, not even considering the possibility of failure, as Octo-Spidey was transported from the battlefield by the Beyonder. Accompanying the remaining Spider-Men to the Kingpin's operating area, the Armored Spidey proclaimed that he never shyed away from a fight since he never lost and he jumped head-on into battle against the Kingpin's guard despite Spider-Man-92131's orders that they take a stealthy approach. Firing gas missiles at Spider-Carnage's agent, the Green Goblin, the Armored Spidey fought alongside the other Spider-Men and exclaimed that the fight was too easy when the Six-Armed Spidey of Earth-39811 downed the Green Goblin with a sonic grenade. Moments later, however, the Armored Spidey swung towards the Green Goblin, only to notice too late that the Green Goblin had a Paralyzer Ray weapon. Hit with the Ray in mid-air, the Armored Spidey crashed to the ground, paralyzed, and was transported away from the battlefield by the Beyonder.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter II: Farewell, Spider-Man") - When the defeated Spider-Carnage transported himself to Earth-31198 to begin his Multiversal destruction plan anew, Madame Web used her powers to search realities for Spider-Carnage's location, soon coming across an image of the Peter Parker Science Foundation. Immediately recognizing the image as being from his home reality, the still partially paralyzed Armored Spidey confirmed his reality and exclaimed that he had to go back home and stop Spider-Carnage. Madame Web impatiently told the Armored Spidey that he could not, as he was still paralyzed due to his earlier rash behavior. Watching from Earth-98311 as Spider-Carnage attempted to impersonate him on Earth-31198, only to be opposed by Spider-Man-92131 and forced to take the Armored Spidey's fiancee Gwen Stacy hostage, the recovered Armored Spidey wondered why Spider-Man-92131 wasn't immediately trying to save Gwen, unaware that Spider-Man-92131 was trying to think of a way to appeal to the Peter Parker inside Spider-Carnage-98311. Madame Web replied by ordering the Armored Spidey to be quiet and she explained that Spider-Man-92131 was using his head, something the Armored Spidey may never learn how to do. Following Spider-Carnage's death when the Armored Spidey's Uncle Ben appealed to Spider-Carnage's heart and Spider-Carnage attempted to rid himself of the Carnage symbiote, the Armored Spidey was present to greet the returning Spider-Man-92131 and Madame Web announced that the Armored Spidey and the other Spider-Men could return to their respective realities.
Comments: Created by John Semper, James Krieg, Mark Hoffmeier and Dell Barras (see Appearances list for list of other artists involved).
Despite being referred to as Spider-Man throughout his two appearances on the Spider-Man cartoon, this character was officially called "Armored Spidey" in the episode credits. Therefore, I have named him that in the profile with Spider-Man listed as an alias.
Like I'm sure many others, I had originally ASSumed that the armored Spider-Man who died in Superior Spider-Man I#32 was the Earth-31198 Armored Spidey from the 90s cartoon but Dan Slott had later tweeted that he had originally intended for the Multiversal Spider-Men to show up as a team in the final story of Spider-Verse I#2 but ultimately decided not to include them so as to not confuse readers since there was already an armored Spider-Man who had died at the beginning of the Spider-Verse story (confirming they were two different armored Spider-Men). As it turns out, the armored Spider-Man who died in Superior Spider-Man I#32 was later designated to have been from Earth-14132 as well so that's further proof that it was not the Earth-31198 Armored Spidey who died during Spider-Verse.

Earth-31198's Armored Spidey should be distinguished from:

"Spider Wars, Chapter II: Farewell, Spider-Man"
J. Jonah Jameson was the godfather of Peter Parker, the Armored Spider-Man. He attended the opening gala of the Peter Parker Science Foundation but when the Armored Spider-Man was delayed in appearing, Jameson and several others including Joe "Robbie" Robertson, "Flash" Thompson, Harry Osborn and Deb Whitman went into the back rooms and found Spider-Man of Earth-92131. Thinking he was the Peter Parker they all knew, Jameson expressed happiness to see him and he tried to usher Spider-Man out to the crowd but Wilson Fisk arrived behind the group and claimed he would need Parker for a few minutes to look over some important legal papers.

The giant Spider-Robot was a large, voice-activated robot acquired by the Armored Spidey. While on Earth-98311 with the Spider-Men to stop Spider-Carnage, the Armored Spidey expressed his wish that he had been able to bring the robot and later, when Spider-Carnage traveled to Earth-31198, he commanded the Spider-Robot to attack the opposing Spider-Man-92131. Recognizing that the Spider-Robot was responding to Spider-Carnage's voice commands because it recognized Peter Parker's voice, Spider-Man-92131 gave the Spider-Robot opposing commands. Eventually, the Spider-Robot's head exploded, unable to process commands from two different Peter Parkers.
The Spider-Robot had superhumanly durable armor and strength capable of holding the superhumanly strong Spider-Man-92131. It was equipped with sound receivers on the side of its head to allow for vocal control and it could also project energy beams from its eyes.

Gwen Stacy was the girlfriend and later fiancee of Peter Parker, the Armored Spidey. At some point during their relationship, the Armored Spidey gave Gwen a device to track his heartbeat in any locations so that the two could always be together. When Earth-98311's Spider-Carnage traveled to Earth-31198 and Spider-Man-92131 pursued, Gwen ran into Spider-Man-92131, who didn't recognize her. Suspecting something off, Gwen nonetheless reminded Spider-Man-92131 of who she was and later returned to find Spider-Man-92131 embracing Earth-31198's Mary Jane Watson. At first angry at hearing Spider-Man profess his love for Mary Jane, Gwen chalked the situation up to a misunderstanding and departed once more for the opening gala of the Peter Parker Science Foundation. As Spider-Carnage posed as Earth-31198's Peter Parker at the gala, Gwen's suspicions were confirmed when she noticed Peter Parker acting crazy. Searching around, Gwen again found Spider-Man-92131, this time held captive by Spider-Carnage, and she helped free him, finally realizing he was not her Peter Parker either. Spider-Man-92131 then rushed to confront Spider-Carnage, who revealed his ruse and attacked Spider-Man-92131. During the battle, Spider-Man-92131 had Gwen Stacy fire a sonic weapon at Spider-Carnage, briefly disrupting Spider-Carnage's symbiote before Wilson Fisk snatched the weapon from her. Not realizing Fisk was also working against Spider-Man-92131, Gwen was soon kidnapped by Spider-Carnage and held hostage, with the insane Spider-Carnage threatening to kill Gwen if anyone followed him. Gwen was soon set aside on a rooftop as Spider-Carnage began assembling an interdimensional portal device to destroy reality and she was rescued when Spider-Man-92131 arrived with Earth-31198's Ben Parker in an effort to appeal to Spider-Carnage's heart. Gwen remained with Spider-Man-92131 until Spider-Carnage vaporized himself in an act of conscience.
