The next in Marvel Legends to top list is Peni Parker! She's a cross between the classic comic book superhero and the amazing Spider-verse character. She's been created using pieces of Gwenpool, Nico Minoru and Spider-Man himself, and given a new face by actress Nastja Capelle. She first appeared in the comics as Peter Parker's girlfriend, but after moving in with Peter she assumes the role of Peter's sidekick and becomes one of his most trusted Avengers teammates.
She's portrayed as a bubbly, fun-loving young girl with a tendency to always find the funniest thing about whatever is happening. In many cases this includes Spider-Man's ridiculous webbed feet. Peni Parker has taken on the mantle of Spider-Man's greatest foe, and she's an uncanny foe whose greatest skills include wall-crawling, climbing, swinging and throwing punches. She's also a crafty woman who uses a pair of web shooters that she keeps tucked into her gloves.
Due to her film-breaking role, Peni Parker has become a beloved comic book personality to many fans, but even non-reading fans have gotten attached to this heroine. There is even a popular online Tumblr page dedicated to recapping Peni Parker's appearances in the comics and in the various films. Many fans are excited about the prospect of a Spider-Man spinoff starring Peni Parker.
One of the first considerations for adapting Peni Parker into a film is to understand some of her history. This is no simple task. In fact, much of her early life is still present in the Marvel Universe, as her parents are both alive and well, and she has a younger sister named Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone). What those early years on the outside may look like, they actually represent something far more mundane. Parker's father is a successful lawyer, and her mother works as a secretary.
It's easy to understand why a comic book character might want to draw a wall in her bedroom. It gives her a place to keep her comics, her toys, and any other miscellaneous items that she finds entertaining. It's also a way for her to escape the rigors of school and get away from her problems for a while. In the Spider-Man films, however, her world seems very different from how it did on the pages of her comic books. It would make for a interesting contrast if she were to draw a wall in her room in the future.
The personality of Peni Parker is somewhat complicated, since she doesn't always have a clear-cut good and bad attitude. Sometimes, she is so caring and thoughtful that she is willing to sacrifice herself for her loved ones, but other times she is ruthless and refuses to go down without a fight. Whether it is Spider-Man or another fellow Marvel Comics character, or even a traditional superhero, Peni Parker has a personality that will appeal to a wide variety of viewers.
There is no doubt that Peni Parker is going to become an even bigger presence in the Marvel Universe when the Spider-Man 3 movie and the Ultimate Spider-Man comic series start making television appearances. In the film, she is played by Anne Hathaway, who is certainly not known for her acting skills. However, if her role in the film is any indication, she has a very good acting talent. Even if she doesn't nail the part of the evil villain, she will be able to at least bring some interest to a fan base that is begging for more Spider-Man movies.
One thing that many people forget about Peni Parker is that she is, in fact, one of the first real examples of a web-swinging superhero. Prior to the release of the Spider-Man films, no one had ever seen a web-swinger use his wrists to swing across a room. However, with the use of the Spectacular Spider-Man pencil by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Parker was able to recreate this action, as seen in the pages of the comic books. While we can expect more of this in the future, Spider-Man has truly found his place in the world of comics. The character will most likely continue to be around for many years to come.
