To be clear, Spidey is one of my all time favorite comic book characters. One of the first Marvel Comics (superhero genre) I collected was Amazing Spider-Man. Totally love him.

But now I'm wondering if, especially in today's culture, could Peter Parker have been subjected to allegations of "Elder Abuse".

No, not talking about how he constantly beleaguered Aunt May with his shenanigans and mysterious comings and goings. That's a different topic altogether. I am referring to how many old guys he would routinely beat the crap out of.

Think about it, Pete was a teenager for years (comic book years) and then a young college aged adult for most of the rest. But his Rogue's Gallery has an abnormally large number of Old Folks in it.

I mean, the Vulture has got to be pushing 80 if not past it. Norman Osborne was probably in his 40's at least. Miles Warren was a professor and he looked like he could have been in his 60's - mid fifty at least.

Silvermane
Doc Ock
Kingpin
Lizard/Curt Connors (another of Petey's profs)
Kraven (why he hasn't been in a movie yet is something I cannot comprehend)
Morbius
the list can go on and on.

Are there any villains Spider-Man fought that were close to his age? Silly

OK, there's one! I guess when Harry Osborne became the Green Goblin he was about the same age as Peter.

Venom and Carnage were probably a little older than Peter, but not nearly as much as the other geezers.

Well......if you think about it, Peter Parker should be in his early 70s by about now. At that point, the age difference between him and some of his foes becomes a matter of perspective......
