Tony Stark along with Norman Osborn Engineered Radioactive Spider That Bit MCU’s Spider-Man
Our friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man’s story is arguably the most famous comic story in the world. Shy nerdy boy gets bitten by a radioactive spider, develops spider senses and powers and learns to use them to fight crime. Everyone knows this bit of the story but no one seems to know where the radioactive spider came from? Considering the excursion was to a museum, not a science laboratory.
Heads Up! Tony Stark and Norman Osborn in MCU Might Have Had a Longer Relationship With Spider-Man Than We Can Assume
- Origins of the Spider-Man
- Did Tony Stark Deliberately Create Spider-Man?
- Tony and Peter’s Relationship
Origins of the Spider-Man
There are three different versions of Spider-Man’s on-screen origin story. Two out of three movies show how Peter gets his powers after a spider bites him. Though Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man iteration never addressed, where the mysterious spider came from.
This particular theory hinges on the Spider-Man storyline presently running in the MCU. After making his MCU debut in Captain America: Civil War in 2016, the first instalment of the MCU’s Spider-Man trilogy released in 2017 and skipped Sony’s common origin details as expected. That proves to be a good move on the studio’s part as it allowed new plot development. It further threw the question of where the radioactive spider came from into oblivion.
Did Tony Stark Deliberately Create Spider-Man?
However, certain evidence exists to support a theory that Tony Stark might have been responsible for creating the radioactive spider.
The storyline of the Civil War shows Peter Parker is still grappling with his newfound powers when Stark approaches him. This means his radioactive accident is somewhere after Avengers: The Age of Ultron in the MCU timeline.
After Ultron – who was created by Tony Stark using the Tesseract – was defeated. Recall General Ross refers to numerous cases of paranormal activities springing up around the world during the Sokovia Accords discussions.
The theory suggests there is a possibility the radioactive spider is another fall out of a failed Stark lab experiment. Further, it speculates the involvement of Spidey’s titular villain Norman Osborn in the
Tony and Peter’s Relationship
Tony Stark’s disposition towards Peter and how he continually felt responsible for his wellbeing, finally culminates in his devastation. When Tony saw Peter turning to dust in the Infinity War, reflects a deep sense of responsibility that isn’t associated with Tony Stark’s persona otherwise.
Remember, that was the first thing he told Cap when he came back to Earth in Endgame. Stark looking at Peter’s picture in the movie is almost cathartic.
It was obvious that Stark has been monitoring Peter Parker for a while. Enough time in fact, for him to design different enhanced spidey suits. Which not only make Spider-Man sharper, but also have the ability to shut him down if he ever went rogue!
However, with Stark gone, exploring that possibility will be up to future instalments in the MCU.
Several fan theories abound about who the new Iron Man is going to be. Among the names on the list is Iron Man’s daughter suggesting that she is going to be involved in the Young Avengers coming in later phases. Discovering a lot about her father and the records of experiments he carried out might be a big part of her story just like Tony was influenced by Howard, his father.
Or we might finally get to see Spider-Man’s archnemesis Norman Osborn finally in the MCU.
