Benjamin Richard Parker is a fictional character in the Marvel Comics alternate future MC2 universe. He is the younger brother of May Parker/Spider-Girl, and the son of Mary Jane and Peter Parker (Spider-Man).
Benjamin is born after a complicated pregnancy. Because his father's genetic code was altered when he received his powers, Ben is at a high risk of being born with some kind of genetic abnormality: deformity, disability, or perhaps even mutant powers. Due to the risk to Mary Jane's health, her obstetrician advises her to consider abortion. However, remembering that she had faced similar risks when pregnant with her daughter May, Mary Jane decides to proceed with the pregnancy.
Ben is born while his sister is fighting Seth, and to his family's relief, is apparently a perfectly healthy, normal little boy. Whether he'll gain powers similar to his father or sister remains unknown. It is possible he may become the next male Spider-Man or possibly Spider-Boy.
His first name Benjamin is in honor of his uncle and great uncle, while his second name Richard is in honor of his grandfather.
In Amazing Spider-Girl #9, Benjamin seems to display some superhuman abilities, namely balancing a toy block on one finger while spinning his arm at a fast speed. He was also seen dangling the block from his finger on a web-like string.
Spider-Girl's little brother.
