    Default Uncle Ben Parker Appreciation Thread

    There's a list of the best and worst versions of Uncle Ben.

    https://www.cbr.com/spiderman-best-w...ons-uncle-ben/

    And that got me to realize that there isn't a discussion on one of the most important influences on Peter Parker, whatever universe he's in (except maybe MCU)
    Sincerely,

    Well it took his death for Peter to be the hero he is today I wouldn’t say he is my favorite character but he is an important one

    Spider-Ben (as in Uncle Ben, not Ben Reilly) was from the original Spider-Verse story arc and appeared in ASM Vol. 3 #12-15, at the end of which he went to the MC2 Universe to help May "Mayday" Parker, who had taken up the mantle of Spider-Woman in the wake of her father's death, take care of baby Benjy Parker.

    Spider-Men Ben first appeared in Edge of Spider-Geddon #3.

    The Uncle Ben that was an accomplice to, and arguably encouraged, his Peter Parker's murder of other Spider-Men to amplify his own powers was from an arc back in 2011 called Identity Wars that crossed over between the Annuals of that year for Amazing Spider-Man, Incredible Hulks, and Deadpool.

    Uncle Ted was from Edge of Spider-Verse #4.

    Have we actually ever seen a photo of Uncle Ben in the MCU, or had any reference to him whatsoever? I'm not recalling anything.

    I think the suitcase Peter used in Far From Home had Uncle Ben's initials, but that's about it.

    Aside from that, I heard that the attire that Peter wear for homecoming was orginially belongs to Uncle Ben too.

    On the other hand, Tom Holland mentioned that he wants Tobey Maguire to play Uncle Ben in MCU.

    Tobey as Uncle Ben would definitely be fun.

    Another actor I could see in the role is Queens-born Ed Burns:
