What the title says, is he still a street level character? (I always considered him to be a low mid tier character, but since most people believe he is Street, I'm using that)

It depends on what version your talking about.

I personally viewed him as a "Jack-of-All-Stats" low mid tier.

He's not the strongest, fastest, or smartest hero in the Marvel Universe, but Peter himself acknowledged how his combination of spider powers has got him through numerous fights with Marvel's own heavy hitters.

I view him as the bench mark for street levelers. But his power set lets him punch out of his weight class.

He mostly functions as a street level hero, so I'd classify him as such.

Yes, he is still street level. IMO. He hasn't had to deal with many cosmic related scenarios except in as a team.

@blackspidey2099: In all seriousness, Spiderman is a street level 100% of the time unless he is on a mission like infinity war. Street Level really just means around where they operate, Spiderman is street level just like Nova is Cosmic level.

he has had a lot of solo stuff that affected the whole world. i equate street level with a character's power level.

Which I dont blame you for, and what you said is true but he is more on just city/street even more so. They should give a definite definition on the subject instead of people's different meanings of it tbh.

I'd place him as a sort of peak street level, a specimen for lower tiers who can punch above his weight.

If by street level you mean that is how he operates then yes. He is a street level character. If you mean power level, then no. He is low to med-tier and not street level.

He is as high as the street tier goes, but not above without extra gear. Some street levelers can still give him a huge run for his money or even beat him for a small majority. I don't think he has enough hax or destructive power to be called a mid tier UNLESS he is morals off.

It's a slippery slope. Marvel's street level characters tend to have more outlandish powersets or versatility. A character that can withstand being punched through multiple buildings, move tracks with a fingerflick and lift tanks while having precognition wouldn't be considered street level in the DCU where the peak is probably Deathstroke (or current Midnighter), for instance. By design, morals and modus operandi, Spidey is a street level guy at heart, though.

When was Spidey a street level character? He's a low mid, given his speed feats ( leaving afterimages with his attacks, keeping up with Mar-vell's top speed, who could dodge missiles and such easily)

That's not near the level of street level dudes like Daredevil or Wildcat, at least for me.

@stalin-is-steel: Daredevil is mid Street Level though, not high.

He honestly hasn't really been on since like the mid 90's; honestly to me he's sorta the gate keeper of the mid tier.
