History

In the Spider-Man film series, Ben Parker is played by Cliff Robertson and his character remains faithful to the comics, including his being shot by a criminal his nephew Peter failed to stop. He appeared in the first film as a father figure for Peter. The amiable Ucle Ben is fired from his job as chief electrician for 35 years and worries about his nephew's strange behavior. His words of wisdom, "With great power comes great responsibility", inspires Peter to become Spider-Man. But Peter lashes out at him during this speech, telling him to stop acting like his father. Peter and his aunt greatly mourn his passing.

The second film features a sequence where Peter contemplates giving up his Spider-Man identity to Uncle Ben who, in the flashback, is a physical representation of the entity and ideology of Spider-Man, encouraging Peter to continue on as a superhero.

Uncle Ben returns in a flashback scene (as well as a dream sequence) in the third film. In the film, Captain George Stacy tells Peter and Aunt May of new evidence that suggests the thug Peter failed to stop in the first film was only an accomplice of Flint Marko (Sandman), who was Uncle Ben's real killer, Peter then imagines Marko throwing Ben out of the car and gunning him down in cold blood. Uncle Ben appears again at the end of the film during a more accurate flashback, as Marko explains to Peter that he really wanted Ben to run, but his partner's interference caused Marko to pull the trigger by accident when Ben was trying to reason with the man and show him the error in his ways. Seeing the truth, Spider-Man forgives Marko just before he slips away.
