The Burglar


Disambiguation: Ben Parker's killer

First published in: 1962

The Burglar was the killer of Spider-Man's uncle and surrogate father figure Ben Parker and the first criminal faced by the hero. His real name has never been revealed in the comics, but since he had a daughter with Carradine as her last name, there's a possibility that he is named Carradine. In the Spider-Man 3 movie, his name is Dennis Carradine, but this is not confirmed in the comics yet.

First appearance in Amazing Fantasy (Marvel, 1962 series) #15 (September 1962) by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
