Did a respect thread for Raimiverse Spider-Man, now I'm doing one for the Andrew Garfield Spider-Man from the ASM movies. And yes, when or if more movies with this Spider-Man are made I'll go back and add feats for them. But for right now, here's the feats from the first two movies.
Respect ASM Spider-Man/Webb-Verse Spider-Man
"Every day, I wake up knowing, that the more people I try to save...the more enemies I will make. And that it's just a matter of time before I face those with more power than I can overcome."
Very shortly after first getting his powers, Peter is shown to have greater sense of touch, as shown by how one small water drop to the forehead at 0:31 wakes him up. He then displays his powers of adhesion to a solid surface for the first time at 0:32. At 1:03, Peter's Spider-Sense kicks in, alerting him to an attack from behind by jerk #1, who he then kicks hard enough to send him sliding across the seats and then onto the ground, the man ultimately being sent a fair distance. That Peter profusely apologizes for this shows the attack was accidental/instinctual, rather than deliberate, which in turn means he could conceivably hit even harder if he were purposefully trying to hurt someone. And this is all when he's still green. At 1:09-1:10, his Spider-Sense warns him of another attack from behind and Peter promptly kicks jerk #2 to the ground. At 1:14 he kicks back a man who is bigger than him with enough force to knock him backwards and right into several other people. At 1:21-1:22 jerk #4 swings a skateboard at Peter that he parries with his arm. From there, he deals with the last of the jerks on the train and then at 1:26 rips a metal pole off it's hinges and wields it without effort.
To start, he obliterates a plastic alarm clock with one hit (0:03-0:04), and then accidentally does all of the following: burst a toothpaste tube, (0:09-0:10), rip a metal sink handle off (0:16), and rip a door knob right off (0:23-0:24). These feats may seem like small potatoes, but remember that Peter did all of this without even meaning to, whereas a normal person would have to put forth some amount of physical effort to do these things.
At 0:22-0:23 he reacts to a basketball coming at him from behind in time to catch it. After using his adhesion powers to make Flash look like an idiot, he bowls him over at 1:41 and then leaps incredibly high into the air before then doing a slam dunk so hard that it shatters the glass frame of the basketball hoop.
For his first night in costume, Spider-Man shows he can close car doors shut with a single web-line (0:48 roughly), and then in the span of but a few seconds is somehow able to get out of the back of the car at 0:57 and then get all the way around to face the car-thief at 1:06. This means that he got out of the car and went around to confront the car-thief in the span of nine seconds, and all without being spotted. After using webbing to effortlessly dispatch the car-thief (beginning at 1:17). At 2:07-2:08 he dodges multiple point-blank shots from handguns and then at 2:09 leaps over the cop's head and disarms him of his pistol. He then manages to escape from a police force numbering 38 officers. At 2:42 he swings into the path of a moving bus and then tumbles along the side of it for a few moments after, and he doesn't seem all that hindered by this.
Not much of a fight here, but Spider-Man does beginning at 0:21 save several cars, all of which are held up via a single web-line each (which shows just how sturdy Spider-Man's webbing is). At 0:42 he knocks the superhuman Lizard back with a swinging kick. He then holds up another car via a single web-line.
At 0:13-0:15 he rips off the rear window of a car without effort. At 0:53 he rips a seat-belt buckle out of it's clip. Beginning at around 1:07 or 1:08, Spider-Man holds onto a car with one arm while his other one holds onto a web-line. He lets go at 1:45, though it's unclear if it was because he couldn't hold on any longer or because the part of the car he was holding onto broke off from the rest. Regardless, he was able to hold onto the car with one arm for almost 40 seconds.
Apologies for the poor quality of the above video, but it was all I could find. Not much here, except that Peter at 1:10 catches a football coming towards him while he was busy trying to kiss Gwen, and then throws it so hard and fast that it bends the metal pole of a football goal that it hits.
At 1:41, he takes being tackled by the Lizard (who at this point has been shown to be strong enough to send cars flying into the air and also punch right through their metal roofs), and then manages to hold one of Lizard's hands at bay (albeit barely) from about 1:42 to about 2:05 when he starts to lose the grapple. But still, he kept Lizard's hand at bay for over 20 seconds. He then at around 2:12 manages to break free of the Lizard's grip and swim to safety. After being sent down a drain, he manages to make it all the way to Gwen's house where she patches him up after the injuries he sustained from Lizard's claws at 1:58-2:00. That Spider-Man A) took cuts from claws strong enough to tear right through metal, and B) could still keep Lizard's arm at bay, break free of him, and make it all the way to Gwen's without getting any medical attention at all is noteworthy.
- Ducks under a sweeping attack from the Lizard (0:31)
- Pulls Lizard down after firing a web-line at his leg (0:31-0:33)
- Takes being slammed into metal lockers by the Lizard with enough force to dent them (0:42)
- Takes being thrown right through a display case and then through the wall of what was most likely concrete behind it.
- Manages to keep from being skewered by the Lizard from 0:50-1:03
- Thrown right through a shelf and another wall with enough force to obliterate both. (1:03-1:05)
- At 1:12 to 1:14, Lizard throws what is basically a makeshift grenade into the hole Peter went through. It's unclear if Peter tanked the explosion or if he had gotten clear of it in time.
- Using his webbing, he rips some lights off of their place on the ceiling and slammed them into the Lizard's head. (1:27-1:29)
- From 1:32 to 1:36 he manages to hold onto the Lizard despite Lizard's best efforts to buck him off. And again, Lizard is superhuman. He could smash through a metal bathroom stall (shown at 0:08-0:11), and before that a concrete ground, yet Spider-Man is still able to hold onto him. At 1:37, Spider-Man gets back on him and maintains his hold before Lizard finally slams Spider-Man into a wall at 1:42. Spider-Man shrugs off the hit and then avoids a slash from Lizard's claws at 1:43.
- Evades strikes from the Lizard using what is pretty much an improvised sword. (1:55-2:00)
- Ducks a tail-swing from the Lizard (2:06)
- Catches the Lizard's tail and holds it back (2:06-2:07)
- Takes being slammed into walls and metal lockers by the Lizard before then being hurled right through a pair of double doors and sliding down the hallway, all the while holding onto his tail (2:08-2:17)
- Takes being slammed into a window so hard he almost shatters it (2:28)
- Web-spams Lizard, cocooning him and keeping him restrained. This doesn't restrain Lizard indefinitely, but it does keep him indisposed long enough for Spider-Man to get Gwen to safety. (2:36-2:52)
- Takes being smashed right through another wall (and book-shelf) at 3:18.
- Uses webbing to keep a table from hitting Stan Lee and then swinging it right at Lizard (3:22-3:23).
- Takes being thrown through the air by Lizard before then slamming into a book-shelf and falling to the floor as books fall down on him. (3:28-3:31)
Starting at 0:05, he swings by New York as SWAT cops shoot at him from different directions. Spider-Man stays consistently ahead of every single shot. It is only when he is blinded by a spot-light at around 0:15 is he shot with a taser round. He then falls from a great height right onto a taxi cab that he hits with enough force to crack it's windshield and then go tumbling along the road (0:17-0:24). This seems to KO or stun him, but not for long. At 1:15, he wakes up, and then effortlessly breaks the handcuffs binding him. At 1:16 he trips George Stacy and downs him before then through a mix of webbing and agility takes down a whole squad of SWAT cops. So he was only stunned for 51 seconds (less than a minute), and upon waking up is just as combat capable as before.
After suffering a gunshot wound that really shouldn't have happened (chalk it up to PIS and move on), Spider-Man manages to keep climbing up a building and making his way to Oscorp without any medical attention. He then botches a leap onto a nearby rooftop and falls onto a fire-escape hard (0:25-0:27). He stands back up and keeps going. It is only at 1:26 that he finally bandages up the gunshot wound, meaning he was making his way through New York with an un-bandaged gunshot wound for over one and a half minutes (since he was shot prior to the above video).
After bandaging up his wound, he's able to first run and then swing to Oscorp and confront the Lizard one last time.
- With a swing kick Spider-Man hits Lizard so hard he knocks him off of the tower (0:12)
- Both Spider-Man and Lizard land onto a giant spotlight from a great height, though Lizard seems to be the one who takes the fall, with Spider-Man on top of him at the time (0:17).
- Avoids a lunging attack from the Lizard (0:21)
- Takes being slammed into the ground by Lizard (0:25)
- Dodges a canister thrown at him by the Lizard (0:36-0:37)
- Dodges a tail slam by the Lizard (0:43)
- Double-kicks the Lizard away from him (0:44)
- Takes a fall from the top of the tower back onto the ground (0:56-0:58)
- Evades another charge from the Lizard with help from his web-lines (1:04)
- Beginning at 1:10, he resists Lizard's attempts to suffocate him with his tail. This attempted strangulation lasts until about 1:54, meaning Spider-Man resisted the attempt to strangle him for over 40 seconds.
- Kicks an injured Lizard so hard he sends him over the ledge (2:09)
- Dodges a punch Aleksei Sytsevich (1:57) and then makes it to the top of the truck by 1:58, even though he ducked under the punch. Yet he still reached the top of the truck in a second.
- Moves his head out of the way just as Aleksei opens fire at him with a machine gun (2:02)
- Grabs Max Dillon and saves him from a flying taxi (2:37-2:39)
- Reacts quickly enough to catch almost all of the plutonium vials before they can fall out of the truck, first at 3:49-3:51, and again at 3:56-3:58
- Takes being hit right in the back by a moving car at 4:18 and is fine, with him sticking to it to give himself a free ride.
- Leaps off of Aleksei's truck and then over a bus before landing and catching the bus in time to keep it from falling on it's side, also able to hold it up and then push it back down on all four wheels. This is both a speed and strength feat. (6:01-6:18)
- From 6:37 to 6:40 he evades machine gun fire from Aleksei while web-swinging and then, incredibly, avoids close-range/point-blank machine gun fire in mid-air long enough to fully close the distance between Aleksei and web-spam him (6:40-6:48)
- Hit right in the chest by a bolt of electricity from Electro that sends him flying backwards and hitting a police car so hard he busts the metal and breaks the glass window (First video, 0:09-0:10). He gets back up pretty quickly and is shown to be no worse for wear minus his fried web-shooter. I feel I also need to stress that Electro's electricity was shown to be powerful enough to blow away a table and also stop a normal man's heart with only a small amount of it. Spider-Man just took a greater amount right to the chest plus other damage, and he's fine.
- Back-flips to avoid Electro's electricity as it's racing towards him (0:39-0:40). He then leaps over a car and, in an incredible display of both reaction speed and presumably also Spider-Sense, creates first a web-net to keep a car from going flying into civilians (1:03-1:08). He then seconds later is able to use webbing to keep two people from touching electrified handrails before they can get shocked (1:12-1:19)
- Dodges a blast of Electro's electricity. (1:34) This electricity then causes damage to the surrounding area, showing just how powerful it is.
- Dodges more blasts of electricity from Electro (1:36-1:38)
- Uses his webbing to rip a fire hydrant out of the ground and then swing it at Electro, the former being done with only one hand (1:38-1:42)
- Takes another blast of electricity from Electro before then going smashing through glass (1:42-1:44). It's unclear how long this KO'ed him, or even if it did so at all. But he does eventually get up and use a fire hose to short-circuit Electro and subdue him.
Throughout this video, Spider-Man not only evades some of Electro's attacks, but he also takes a large amount of electrical abuse. And as noted above, a super small bit of electricity from Electro blew away a table, and another small bit of it stopped a normal man's heart. The proof of this is shown here:
At 0:40-0:41 of this video, Electro one-shots a normal human with one small bolt of electricity. Just one. And yet, in the video above this one, Spider-Man is shown to be durable enough to take WAY more than just that one bolt, including at 0:43-0:45 where he takes electricity right to the face at close range, and then at 2:12-2:32 takes a sustained, 20 second long barrage of electricity right to his chest, plus the knock-back after Electro is overloaded following this. And yet by the end of the whole fight he pretty much walks it all off. He is not shown to be frankly at all injured, given that he's still walking, talking, and mere moments later, fighting again. That's remarkable pain tolerance. Especially since, again, Electro showed himself capable of a fair bit of damage with only a small bit of electricity, never mind what he was putting Spider-Man through.
At 0:03-0:07 he is able to leap high enough into the air to catch Gwen. He then goes smashing through a glass roof onto a metal surface, and he's still conscious and combat-capable (0:08-0:09). And this was after all of the electrical punishment he took from Electro. A pumpkin bomb explosion follows this, but it's unclear if Spider-Man either tanked the blast or just got clear of it in time. It seems to be the latter, so that's what I'm going to go with here.
At 0:17, he's able to hold onto Gwen with just one arm and then lowers her to safety via webbing. The Green Goblin comes at him at around 0:21 and Spider-Man evades his initial attack. He manages to play keep-away for a while before then web-zipping towards the Green Goblin at about 0:32. From 0:34-0:38 he manages to hold onto Green Goblin and not let go. At 0:38 he's smashed into the side of a wall with enough force to crumble the stone but he seems unaffected by this. He then at 0:40 kicks Green Goblin so hard he knocks him right off his glider.
At around 0:50, Green Goblin tackles him and manages to pin him. Spider-Man dodges a stab from some weird looking pseudo-knife at 0:58. From around 0:59 to 1:03 he manages to get into a grapple with Green Goblin. It's unclear who, if either one, would have one, but they seem to be able to match one another's strength for at least a time. Spider-Man then head-butts Green Goblin at 1:03, which staggers him. A few more blows and some quick-thinking with his webbing later and Spider-Man has the Green Goblin sufficiently indisposed.
Now, from 1:08 to 1:40 Green Goblin had his gauntlet hand wrapped around Spider-Man's throat and yet despite this attempt at strangulation, Spider-Man is never killed. This means that Spider-Man took having a superhuman's armored hand around his throat for over thirty seconds while also holding onto with one arm a web-line Gwen was holding onto the other end of, and while also placing his foot between moving clock gears to stop them. That's pretty nuts.
Deflects a missile with a manhole cover at 3:01 (don't ask me how that's possible), and then swings the manhole cover about via web-lines without effort, in the process knocking other missiles askew (3:03-3:06).
So to sum everything up:
(TO BE ADDED)
"You know what it is I love about being Spider-Man? Everything."
