Peter Parker, the superhero with the biggest heart, dies at age 76

The Marvel Comics superhero Peter Parker has died at age 77 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease, his family announced Friday.

Parker, who won more than 50 Emmys for his work on Spider-Man and Spider-Verse, died Tuesday after a battle with the progressive neurodegenerative disease.

Parker was a founding member of the Fantastic Four, along with Reed Richards and Sue Storm.

Parker had battled Alzheimer’s for decades.

He passed away surrounded by his wife, Gwen Stacy, his daughter, Ben Reilly, and his family.

Parker died at his home in New York City.

He had been in a coma for the past six weeks.

He was born in Queens, New York on June 27, 1938.

“Peter Parker is no longer with us,” his wife Gwen said in a statement released by Marvel Studios, a subsidiary of Disney.

“His loss is deeply felt, and we will miss him dearly.”

Marvel also announced that the character of Doctor Octopus will also be killed off.

Parker’s longtime collaborator and fellow Avengers team-up, writer and writer-director Stan Lee, died on Thursday.

Parker began writing his first Spider-Girl story in 1956, with the character’s creator, Jack Kirby.

After that, he began writing stories for Spider-Men, the Avengers and the X-Men.

“He was a wonderful writer,” Lee said in 2014.

“A true hero.”

Parker and Lee had been friends since childhood.

In an interview with ABC News, Parker said he and Lee shared a “deep love for each other.”

“The love and admiration that we shared was indescribable,” Parker said.

“We had the same ambitions.

We both wanted to do the best.

The passion for comic books was mutual.

He would draw Spider-Gods, and I would draw a Spider-Woman.

It was so much fun.

We were just brothers, we’d be having lunch together, we were having coffee together, and then we’d talk about movies.”

“We’d laugh, we would be having dinner together, just laughing and talking about the world of comics,” Lee recalled.

“It was a very special, very happy time.”

Parker was born on July 19, 1938, to Gwen and Joe Parker in Queens.

He attended the prestigious Queens School for the Deaf, which became his home for years.

“When he was a child, I could hardly believe that he was going to become the best comic book writer that I’d ever known,” longtime collaborator Stan Lee said.

Parker became a lifelong fan of the superheroes of the era.

He has appeared in more than 70 Spider-Women and has written more than 100 comic books, many of which have sold millions of copies.

“I think that we were able to see the character evolve over the years.

He grew up into a man who was a hero and a man with a soul,” Lee added.

“That’s how much of a genius he was.”
