Everyone knows the story of Peter Parker, the mild managed nerdy kid who moonlights as a webslinging superhero. After receiving a bite from a radioactive spider, he becomes able to do whatever a spider can. After refusing to use those powers results in the death of his uncle, he goes from Peter Parker to Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man. Now that Spider-Man has joined the Marvel Cinematic Universe, however, could there be more? Since Spider-Man’s origins are so well known, he’s one of the few characters to be introduced without an origin story, something normally reserved for the super spy contingent of the Avengers. This leaves an opportunity for there to be more to Spider-Man’s origin.
One Redditor has suggested that it provides the opportunity for Tony Stark to be the man behind the power granting spider. Not only would this tie Peter to the heart and soul of the MCU since it came into existence in 2008, it also provides a platform to introduce Norman Osborn, the alter ego of the villain Green Goblin. Peter’s world has a lot of elements that are key to Marvel, but have been absent, including Oscorp, The Daily Bugle and its publisher, J. Jonah Jameson. Right now, it’s just Aunt May Parker, Peter and Ned Leeds. Ned eventually becomes the Hobgoblin, but what if Marvel didn’t have to skip over the Green Goblin? This theory provides a clue to what happened during the devastation after Thanos’ snap and the unsnapping, and what’s in store for the MCU now that Spider-Man: Far From Home brings the Infinity Saga to a close. Let’s take a look.
