Benjamin Richard Parker (often called Benjy by his sister and fans) 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 obstretrician advises her to consider abortion. However, remembering that she had faced similar risks when pregnant with her daughter May, Mary Jane decided to 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. Wheter 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 granduncle, while his second name Richard is in honor of his grandfather.

Benjamin seemed to display some superhuman abilities[1], 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.

He was being possessed by a miniature version of the Carnage Symbiote. After his sister freed him from the Symbiote by using the ultrasonic weaponry of the villain Reverb, his father notices that the baby's ears were bleeding, and realized that Ben has lost his hearing, likely because Ben's ears were far too underdeveloped to withstand the sonic waves. The doctors in the hospital are still trying to determine wether Ben's hearing loss is temporary or permanent. May is deeply upset about this and blames herself. Nevertheless, Ben still seems to be his usual, happy self. Since discovering her baby brother crawling on the ceiling she fears that due to his exposure to the symbiote, his abilities have somehow been jump started far too early (as hers only came about in her teens) possibly making him more powerful than his father and sister as his powers manifested during childhood.

Normie Osborn recently agreed to fund an operation to restore Benjamin's hearing. The operation was a success, restoring most, if not all of Ben's hearing.

It is also known that Peter is the only one who can get him to burp "in the morning" (as Mary Jane says it) by feeding him chili.
