Ben was first my customer and then, became my friend. We had the common USAF background and I believe that was the underlying bond we had that sparked our friendship. We were both telecom geeks too which is why we got along so well. I'll really miss him. My sympathies to his entire family and friends. My memory of Ben will be one of laughs and inappropriate jokes, politically incorrect statements that made you cry with enjoyment. From a work perspective he was supportive and challenging but most of all he was a great friend!
During my time working with Ben at Guavus, we traveled the globe in search of brave souls willing to deploy our technology. He was one of the most brilliant technologists and one of the most fun people to work with that I have ever met. There is no better wingman, partner and friend on the planet. I will really miss him. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and other friends through this difficult time.
I started my journey at Guavus with Ben being one of the first people I met and over the 5 years of working with him we built a great relationship. He was always my ray of light in the office and put a smile on my face anytime we interacted.
I will truly, truly miss Ben and my whole heart goes out to Tauri and the girls. I worked with Ben at Verizon. He was always an out of the box thinker and a daredevil. Ben was a good man and will be missed. I knew Ben in high school. We became step brother and sister. He had a very contagious laugh. We grew up and lost touch but I always will have a special place in my heart for Ben. My friend first but became my brother.Uncle Ben is referenced in the game's narrative, but there is also an Uncle Ben Easter egg hidden in the open-world game: His grave.

Cyberpunk 's Night City Map Leaks.The death of Uncle Ben is considered the defining moment in Spider-Man's life. The loss of this paternal figure and the circumstances that lead up to this fateful moment changed Peter Parker's life and taught the new hero about what to do regarding power and responsibility.
In the case of Miles Moralesa new Spider-Man with a similar yet different power set in the Ultimate Marvel universe, it was Peter Parker himself whose death would inspire Miles to suit up and use his powers for good.
Created by Ultimate Spider-Man writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Sara Pichelli, Miles is an intelligent teenager from Brooklyn who balances family, friends, and his recent acceptance into a prestigious charter school. During a secret visit to his uncle Aaron Davisunbeknownst to him as the criminal Prowler, Miles is bitten by an OZ-enhanced spider who hitched a ride in Aaron's bag during his recent pilfering of Oscorp's ruins. Miles soon discovered that he now had superpowers, a secret he only revealed to his best friend Ganke Leewho revealed that Miles' powers mimicked the abilities of spiders much like a certain famous web-slinging hero.
Although many people dream or talk about what they'd do if they one day had superpowers, Miles was both frustrated and afraid.
Fearing his parent's reaction, especially from his superhero-distrusting father, Miles swore Ganke to secrecy and attempted to live a normal life. When he couldn't resist helping people during an apartment fire, the experience and danger seemed awesome to Ganke but near traumatized Miles in the process. Overwhelmed with shock and fear, Miles stated that he wasn't cut out for such a dangerous and life-threatening lifestyle and that the world did not need two Spider-Men, one of which seemed to be doing just fine.
Unfortunately that following night, news of the Spider-Man's injury and the following battle with the Sinister Six in Queens were too much for Miles to ignore.
As Spider-Man's loved ones and friends grieved over his loss, Miles asked a grieving Gwen Stacy what his name was, an identity that would soon be known all over the world.
Later, Miles told Ganke that he blamed himself for Peter's death, calling himself a coward who could have intervened and possibly helped Peter but chose not to because his desire to be normal was more important. Although Ganke stated that Miles could have died in the process, Miles Morales stated that he was done hiding and being afraid, with his friend stating that perhaps Miles was given these powers so the world would always have a Spider-Man.
Miles and Ganke were among the thousands who showed up to pay their respects at Peter's funeral where he managed to ask Gwen Stacy why Peter chose to be Spider-Man. Whether she recognized him from that night before or she wanted to make a point, the grieving Gwen told Miles about Peter and his Uncle Ben, how his death taught him about great power, and the great responsibility that comes with it. Bendis and Pichelli sought to create a different Spider-Man, someone who's life, identity, and experiences would take Peter's successor in a similar yet different direction.
While it took a while before Miles was officially wearing his own costume, gear and titlethe new Spider-Man did his best to balance his everyday life while also honoring Peter Parker's memory as Spider-Man.

Ben was born in and was later married to May Reilly. After his brother Richard Parker and his wife Mary were killed in a plane crash, Ben took care of their son Peter with May. Peter and Ben had a strong bond and went to various events together, such as ball games. InPeter was bitten by a radioactive spider, and gained spider-like abilities, using them to participate in wrestling matches and performing TV shows, until he saw a burglar fleeing from a cop, and allowed him to escape, thinking it wasn't his problem.
This would backfire on Peter though, as the same burglar robbed his house and killed Ben. Guilty and devastated, Peter resolved to never leave a life to suffer the same fate as Ben, and eventually quit performing to fight crime as the vigilante Spider-Man. Ben's death continues to inspire Peter to this day. The player can prompt Spider-Man to pay respects at the grave to unlock the trophy "With Great Power".

Original appearance For more background of Ben Parker throughout comic book history, see all appearances of Uncle Ben and the original appearance of Ben Parker on the Marvel Database. Categories :. Universal Conquest Wiki.Benjamin Franklin Parkerusually called Uncle Benis a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comicsusually in association with the superhero Spider-Man.
He is the husband of May Parker and the paternal uncle and father figure of Peter Parker. He was modeled after American founding father Benjamin Franklin. The character has been an essential part of Spider-Man's history. His death at the hands of a petty criminalwhom Spider-Man previously had the chance to apprehend, but chose not to, has been depicted in almost all versions of the hero's origin storyas the main factor that inspired Peter to become Spider-Man.
Uncle Ben's quote, " With great power comes great responsibility ", has become Spider-Man's iconic life motto. The character has been substantially adapted from the comics into various forms of media, including films, animated series, and video games. Uncle Ben first appeared in Amazing Fantasy 15 and was killed in the same issue. Although his history as a supporting character was very brief, Uncle Ben is an overshadowing figure in Spider-Man's life, often appearing in flashbacks.
The murder of Uncle Ben is possibly the most notable in comic book history. He is also one of the few comic book deaths that has never been reversed in terms of official continuity.
Later, the revivals of both Bucky and Jason in led to the amendment, "No one in comics stays dead except Uncle Ben". The violent killing of Uncle Ben, done by a common street criminalalso shares multiple similarities to the death of Thomas and Martha Waynethe parents of Batman, which sometimes is included in the saying.
There have been examples of Uncle Ben remaining alive in alternative timelinesincluding stories featured in Marvel's What If one of which he forces Peter to unmask in front of J. Jonah Jamesonand a storyline of the Spider-Man animated series featured a universe where Uncle Ben had never died, and Peter Parker became a successful industrialist, having never really bothered to use his powers responsibly as everything always seemed to work out for him.
This fact is used to defeat the rampaging Spider-Carnage by exposing him to the one person he will trust and listen to: the Uncle Ben of that reality. A story-line in the official series Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man seemingly suggested that Ben may be alive.
This Ben, however, was actually from a parallel universe where Aunt May died in a random accident, leaving him to raise Peter.
This alternate Ben came to the planet Earth of regular Marvel comics the reality as part of an evil plan devised by the Hobgoblin of to defeat the Spider-Men of different eras. During the Clone Conspiracy storyline, when Peter's clone Ben Reilly who had taken Uncle Ben's first name, along with Aunt May's last, to differentiate himself from Peter used the Jackal 's technology to revive several of Peter's old enemies and allies, he offered to bring Uncle Ben back to life while trying to win Peter to his point of view.
Ben Parker was born in Brooklyn, New York. He trained to be a military police officer,  and also spent time as a singer in a band. He had known his future wife, May Reilly since their high school days, but she, in turn, was naively interested in a boy who was involved in criminal activities.
When he came to her one night and proposed to her on the spot, Ben was there to expose him as a murderer, and to comfort the heart-broken May when the boy was arrested. Their relationship evolved into love, and they enjoyed a happily married life, later caring for mermaid Linda Brown.
Ben was very protective of Peter, going as far as fighting some of the bullies that tormented young Parker. Peter became friends with Charlie Weiderman in high school, a teen even more unpopular than he was. However, Charlie often provoked the trouble with the other teens. One day, he was chased to the Parker home by a group of bullies led by Rich and Ben intervened.
Ben told them that if they wanted Charlie, they would have to go through him. Rich tried to, but was surprised by Ben's army training.He was deeply attracted to May Reillywho was then a strikingly beautiful, young woman who lived with her parents in his Brooklyn neighborhood. May, however, believed herself to be in love with a young man named Johnny Jeromewho clearly had far more money than Ben.
Jerome, she thought, offered her the promise of a more exciting life in this time of severe economic hardship. Ben warned May that Jerome was actually a criminal, but she dismissed what Ben said about him as a jealous slander.
One day, however, Jerome unexpectedly confronted May and proposed to her on the spot, saying that he wanted them to leave together right away. May heard the police out on the street and realized that something was wrong.
Then, an angry Ben came in and told her that Jerome and some accomplices had just robbed a jewelry store and had shot a man who tried to call for help. May realized that Jerome was indeed a criminal and told Jerome she could never marry such a man. Jerome left and was almost immediately captured by the police outside.
Ben comforted the weeping May in his arms. Jerome was convicted for murder and burglary. The night the Jerome proposed to her was a turning point in May Reilly's life. She began to set aside her fantasies about marrying someone well off financially, and learned to make decisions about the direction of her life. Coming to appreciate Ben Parker and his devotion to her, May fell in love with him and they started dating. Even after becoming a couple, though, May and Ben didn't always got along.
After a big discussion, May and Ben ended their relationship; and three weeks later, they were married, much to May's friend Anna Watson 's delight. Ben had a considerably younger brother, Richardwho became an intelligence agent. Richard married another agent, Maryand the two of them had a son, Peter. While Peter was still an infant, Richard and Mary were assigned to infiltrate the Algerian based spy ring controlled by the Communist agent, the Red Skull.
The moment the Red Skull learned that Richard and Mary Parker were double agents, he had them killed. The teenage Peter, before he gained superhuman powers, was shy and studious, and felt alienated from his fellow high-school students. Ben and May provided him with the love and emotional support he needed, and they were the only two people Peter truly cared for.
Through an unusual accident, Peter gained superhuman powers. He decided not to tell anyone what had happened to him, not even Ben and May, and created the costumed identity of Spider-Man for himself. As Spider-Man, Peter became an overnight success in the entertainment world.
After one television appearance, he saw a guard chasing a thief in the studio building. The guard called out to Spider-Man for help, but the masked youth ignored him, thinking that capturing criminals was none of his business, and the burglar got away.
This unidentified burglarhowever, had been the cellmate of the infamous depression era gangster "Dutch" Mallone. Eventually, Mallone was captured at the same house by a force of Treasury agents led by the celebrated "untouchable" Elliott Ness and was convicted on tax evasion charges. It was long rumored that Mallone had hidden millions of dollars away somewhere. Mallone was sent from one prison to another, and finally, as an elderly man, he became the cellmate of the burglar who Spider-Man allowed to escape.
The burglar heard Mallone talk in his sleep about where he hid the money.Statistics News Statistics News Runze Li named 2017 AAAS Fellow. Pat Buchanan receives the C.
