It’s a tough job being a teenager as it is, let alone being a superhero teenager like Peter Parker in the upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming. Not only is there high-school and chores, but Peter has other things on his mind like saving Queens, New York, from villains and bad guys.
Peter’s a busy guy and ahead of the release of the Homecoming trailer, due imminently, we've been speculating on what his average day might look like...
Monday 05:00 – I’m only just getting in from a night of saving Queens again. If only people knew the type of thing I was doing while they all slept.
It was a hectic night; I had to save the store down the road from the school from being robbed by two guys with ski masks on and then had to save a cat from a tree. The weirdest part of the night was when I had to stop a tram from being derailed after this guy literally FLEW past the driver and distracted him. At least I think he flew past. There were feathers all over the tram’s screen and in the tracks, but I couldn’t go after the guy as I had to save the people on it. I better be quick and get my homework done for school before I get to sleep. Only a couple of hours until I need to be up!
Monday 08:15 – I overslept...again! I set my alarm for 7 and still couldn’t wake up; I must have been so exhausted from last night. Luckily Aunt May woke me up before she had to go to work. I didn’t even complete my homework before I fell asleep. Just hoping I can quickly write up the answers before Mr Gundron asks for it in. At least I’ve got Physics today where I get to sit behind Liz Allan…
Monday 10:45 – Mr Gundron saw me filling in the homework and told me that he thinks I looked tired. I told him I’m just struggling sleeping at the moment but I have to try and get him to stop worrying, I wouldn’t want him contacting Aunt May. He let me off because I help out with the school paper that he runs.
Monday 13:00 – I heard some of the jocks talking about the tram incident last night. Guess more people saw than I first thought. No one mentioned the bird guy though, so maybe my mind was playing games with me. The jocks noticed me listening to their conversation and called me names, but it didn’t bother me because I don’t need them, I have Ned who is great. I wish I could tell him about my secret, but I don’t want to get him in trouble.
Monday 16:00 – I rushed home from school so I could quickly do my chores for Aunt May, as I got to get out tonight and see if the feathers are still on the tram. School was fine but I have so much more homework to do for tomorrow. I’ll make sure I do it tonight before I head out.
Monday 19:25 – I didn’t get a chance to grab dinner, but I told Aunt May I was going to Ned's to eat so hopefully she doesn’t worry. Aunt said I need to be back by 10pm as that’s my curfew, but I know she sleeps at 11pm so if I ring her before bed and say I’m coming back she should be happy. She’s such a good aunt to me, I’m so lucky to have her but I don’t think it would be a good idea to tell her my secret either as she would just worry and I couldn’t do that to her. I’m heading out now back to the tram to see what’s happening. Dammit, I just remembered I didn’t do my homework!
Monday 23:08 – I rang Aunt May and put her off the scent. I told her I would be back by now but if I sneak in in a couple of hours she won’t be none the wiser. I must get back by 2am this time to finish my homework.
Tuesday 03:34 – I’m still out, but it’s for a good reason: I found the feathers! I’m seeing if there are any others around the City. Though they appear like real bird feathers, I definitely don’t think he is full bird as his body and face looked human last night. Why was he trying to hurt those people though? And why did he seem angry that I helped them? If only my biology class provided me with information that could help me out with this one.
Tuesday 04:45 - I’ve been to almost all of the roofs of the tall buildings in the city, and nearly all of them have the same type of feathers. Guess it’s not just me spying on the city from the top of the high points.
Tuesday 08:30 - I overslept AGAIN. School is going to be a struggle today, especially since I’m running late and didn’t do my homework… again. At least I think I’m onto this Vulture-type guy, I think I know how to find him…
