What are SPIDER-MAN’S Powers?

September 1, 2019


Possessing the proportionate physical capabilities
of a human-sized spider, Peter Parker’s incredible assortment of superpowers were
obtained as a side effect from the bite of a radioactive spider that bit him. Along with extreme agility, durability, and
the ability to adhere to walls, Peter possesses the strength of a spider at human-scale, using
his physical strength to overpower many of his superhuman adversaries, while demonstrating
the ability to lift in excess of 15 tons under stress. His senses have been incredibly heightened
as well, contributing to his superhuman reflexes, and what is known as Peter’s Spider Sense
– an instinctive ability which alerts Peter to potential threats; allowing him to pre-emptively
dodge incoming strikes, or avoid obstacles while swinging. The radioactive spider not only gifted Peter
physical attributes, but knowledge as well – providing him with the inherent knowledge
of how to synthetically manufacture spider silk. Check out this video on Spider-Man’s web

  1. you should do more research. spider-man actually has nothing in common with a spider. 1 spiders are not known for their strength. 2 they seance the vibrations on their web( they do not have super seances). but this is a good quality video so keep up the good work.

  2. This is my new favourite Youtube channel. I don't understand at all why you don't have more subs/views, this is legit content, explained in a minute!! Too many comic channels out there that ramble about their own opinion, useless talking points, or they just have really annoying voices. You were neither of the three and will get my subscribe/like from now on!

  3. Is the spider that bit Parker still radioactive at this point? Or is it just a genetically modified spider in recent reboots?

  4. The radioactive spider didn't give him knowledge to make the web shooters. Peter is a nerdy science whizz who built the web shooters himself!

  5. Spiderman's web-shooters and web-fluid were both created by Peter Parker, himself, as he is another of the scientific geniuses of the Marvel Universe, though I am not adverse to the idea of Stark Industries engineering improving on the web-shooter design.

  6. It's a common misconception that Peter Parker has the proportionate strength/abilities of a spider. He's actually much stronger than he would be if that were the case. He'd only be able to lift around 8000 pounds if so, but he can go upwards of 50 tons if he really puts his mind to it.
