Avengers ruined Peter Parker’s career and personal life in ways beyond damage control. If not enemies, the Avengers are surely not Spider Man’s considerate friends. We have our reasons.
Avengers aren’t Peter Parker’s true friends, they have ruined him, overshadowed him, and bullied him to great extents. Throughout the history of Marvel Universe, we find so many instances when Avengers used Spider Man as a bait or simply as a third wheel.
Avengers have exposed their “friend” Peter Parker to dangerous situations and actively tried to ruin his life knowingly or unknowingly.
Avengers Ruined Peter Parker
We have penned down the top 5 instances that prove our point. Scroll through and let us know if you feel the same.
#5 Go get kidnapped and we will be shocked
If you are an Avenger superhero. And a new, relatively young, member joins your team. A bunch of the most heinous criminal have escaped and most of them are the young member’s enemies. What would you do as a superhero?
Well, to qualify to be a part of Marvel’s Avenger, you would have to leave him with minimal protection wait to get him kidnapped. Not only this but you would have the added responsibility to appear shocked. That’s what the Avenger’s did in Ultimate Six series (4 and 5).
This list could end here and still prove that Avengers ruined Peter Parker, but no, they ruined him A LOT.
#4 We just want to murder Spidey
If a superhero turns evil or appears to give out evil vibes, its mostly because he/she is mind-controlled or a robot replica. Spider Man turned the latter in Avenger 11 comics.
Avengers are more than the normal level of excited to get a chance the beat the evil Spider Man. In fact, every Avenger is sure to express how excited they were fight of their new evil enemy. Though by the end of the issue, all the superheroes laugh it off, it would have been a traumatic experience Spider Man to listen to recurring statements that the Avengers ‘never trusted’ him. The Avengers’ comments ruined Peter Parker.
#3 Letting Hulk Beat the Sh*t out of him
Who would you send to bring back a missing Hulk? Would you choose an experienced Avenger or a new recruit like Spider Man? The Avengers ask Spider Man to lead the great green angry giant back to the base in Amazing Spider-Man Annual 3. They conveniently forget the civilians who would be hurt while spidey web slings his way back. Now, how well could that turn out?
Spider Man finds Hulk and also the fact that Avengers have not treated him right. So he goes back to the Avengers and lies that he never found Hulk. It is only at the end of the comic that it is revealed why the Avengers were trying to find Hulk- to seek his help. It seems unfair that they never mentioned this to Peter Parker when they sent him on the mission. In fact, Avengers’ decision to send Peter Parker alone was a suicide mission of sorts (yes, they did ruin him).
#2 Hiring Spider Man’s Arch Enemy
If you are allies, you don’t hire your ally’s biggest enemies without informing them. How difficult could that be, unless you just didn’t care? Avengers set out to ruin Peter Parker yet again when they decided to hire and help Venom.
And it is general knowledge in the Marvel Universe that Venom is Spider Man’s biggest enemy. It was not just inconsiderate of Avengers in Thunderbolts 112 to hire Venom without informing Spider Man. It was, in fact, a downright cold decision.
Well, guess who has to clear up the mess when the Avengers’ have had their use of such villains? Of course. Peter Parker!
#1 Making him take off his mask
Could Avengers have ruined Peter Parker anymore? Yes. In Civil War, it seemed like a witty idea when Avengers decided to have Spider Man reveal his identity. Among all the superheroes, this one had protected his identity with the most dedication. So, it seemed like a good idea to Avengers to make him reveal his identity first from the political point of view.
While the decision was a brainy one, it landed Spider Man in the hottest soup. His family now lies in grave vulnerability to villains. And this point is proved when at the end of Civil War: The Amazing Spider-Man, Aunt May gets shoot.
Poor Peter Parker’s life and family are all ruined thanks to the Avengers. His friends turned out to be his greatest silent enemies who mostly do not think about him.
