In some incarnations, we see Peter Parker as a high school student. In other incarnations we see him as a college student at Empire State University. And in yet other incarnations we see Peter as a young adult working for the Daily Bugle.

How old does Peter Parker get in any of the Marvel universes? Note that I am including the Marvel tag to include comics and television in addition to the movies.

  • Rebooting isn't dependent on his age; are you asking what age he was in each of the recent 3 movie universes? – Izkata Aug 1 '17 at 4:49
  • There are A LOT of Marvel universes, many with Peter Parkers. You might want to narrow it down to at least the primary comics universes. I am pretty sure that there are What-Ifs with Peter living to any number of ripe old ages. – Politank-Z Aug 1 '17 at 4:56
  • @Politank I am not including brief premonitions of future old age. I am asking how old he gets on a day to day basis. Not sure what words concisely state that obvious assumption, so I opted for a brief OP. – CodeMed Aug 1 '17 at 5:00
  • That's not what I am referring to. Marvel Comics has a vast multiverse with many incarnations of its primary characters. – Politank-Z Aug 1 '17 at 5:01

    @Politank-Z Google also has a vast database of meta-analyses of such things. I am sure that the truth is out there. – CodeMed Aug 1 '17 at 5:06

The oldest version of Peter Parker that we see is probably the one in Spider-Man: Reign. Wikipedia describes him as "late 60s, early 70s", which seems about right:

enter image description here

In this version, Peter Parker has long since retired from his life as Spider-Man and lives alone as a florist in a dystopian future city, because

he accidentally killed Mary Jane with his radioactive bodily fluids.

It takes place in the "Earth-70237" timeline.

  • Thank you and +1 for a documented answer at face value. Let's see if anyone else comes up with more insight. – CodeMed Aug 1 '17 at 5:11
  • Why does he mention "his wife" if he's living alone? Or is the posted image a flashback to when he wasn't single in the past? – Flater Aug 1 '17 at 13:32

    I'm assuming he didn't bleed on her? – Arthur Dent Aug 1 '17 at 14:02
  • @Flater It's been a while since I read it, but iirc he was going to say something like "she died and was making most of our income". – Milo P Aug 1 '17 at 15:36

    @ArthurDent I wish I was making this up 😐 wired.com/2007/02/spidermans_radi – Milo P Aug 1 '17 at 15:38
