Turn of the century Occult hero Spider-man.
Raised by his Aunty Mae and Uncle Ben, young Peter Parcoeur was lucky to have the best education available to a Negro child of his time. His uncle had fought in the war, and instilled in Peter a strong sense of honor and duty to his fellow man. When his uncle became involved in a dispute with a white business owner and refused to back down, he was murdered by a white lynch mob.
It was in this dark hour that Peter was approached by the Spider God-- who offered him great powers to protect the oppressed. The strength, agility, and cunning of a spider allowed him to become a masked vigilante devoted to bringing down the powerful and corrupt and saving the meek and innocent. Peter maintains a cover as a paperboy and runner for the powerful and pro-Democrat Dixie Bugle.
