History

May Parker is the elderly aunt of Spider-Man (Peter Parker), and, not being privy to her nephew's secret, worries about him continually. Not the sharpest tool in the box, she was once engaged to be married to the supervillain Doctor Octopus, whom she failed to recognise despite his having four metal tentacles attached to his body.

Powers and abilities

Strength level

Elderly human female who gets regular light exercise.

Weaknesses

Heart condition. May has suffered at least seventeen heart attacks over the years (and died twice). She is also quite staggeringly unobservant.

Notes

Most, but not all, of May's appearances in British comics have been reprints of American material.

Trivia

May seems to have de-aged throughout her appearances in comics!
