Other Info

Mary Fitzpatrick was the daughter of O.S.S. (Office of Strategic Services) agent Will Fitzpatrick. Mary followed her father's footsteps and become a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent. She became a translator and data analyst for the agency. (To learn about Will Fitzpatrick, just click on the highlighted name above.)

It was during her time in the CIA, that Mary met
Richard Parker. The two soon fell in love. When they decided to get married, Mary and Richard eloped, and then later had a more elaborate service, fooling many people. Soon after they were married, Mary began working on-field assignments with Richard. The two easily used the cover as a married couple while on their missions. (Click on the highlighted name above to learn about Richard Parker.)

Later on, Mary and Richard were sent to investigate Baroness Adelicia Von Krupp, who had captured a Canadian ally named "Agent Ten." The couple were able to successfully rescue the agent
from the Baroness and Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. During this rescue, Mary and Richard found out that the agent's real name was Logan (aka Wolverine). (To learn about Baron von Strucker and/or Wolverine, just click on their highlighted names above.)

After that mission, while in the hospital, Mary discovered that she was pregnant. Logan was still with the couple at the time and was the first person to congratulate the Parkers on their pregnancy.

Once their baby boy,
Peter, was born, Mary and Richard decided to continue with their careers as secret agents. Due to being frequently absences, Mary and Richard often left Peter in the care of his Richard's older brother, Ben Parker, and his wife May. (To learn about Peter, Ben, and/or May Parker, just click on their highlighted names above.)

When Peter was still a young child, Mary and Richard were sent on a mission to infiltrate an Algerian-based spy ring controlled by the Communist agent Albert Malik (Red Skull). They both posed as traitors to the United States, but in reality were serving as double agents. However, eventually their cover was blown and the Red Skull called in an assassin named Finisher to kill the two. The Finisher sabotaged the Parkers' plane and caused it to crash. Mary and Richard were subsequently declared missing in action/presumed dead, as two burnt bodies were found in the remains. In addition, the Red Skull had Mary and Richard Parker framed for illicit defection and as traitors to the United States. (To learn about the third Red Skull, click on his highlighted name above.)

As their son Peter grew up, her brother-in-law and sister-in-law (Ben and May) would share photographs and happy memories with Peter of his parents. However, Uncle Ben and Aunt May did not believe that Mary and Richard had been traitors to their country. In fact, when Peter discovered this, he traveled to Algeria to find out more about his parents. Ultimately, after a run in with the Red Skull and the Finisher, Peter was able to find evidence to prove that his parents were in fact innocent. Spider-Man then returned to America with the evidence which cleared Mary and Richard Parkers' names.

Years later, Mary and Richard resurfaced. They told Peter and Aunt May that they had been held captive overseas all this time. However, overtime, Peter realized that both of these parents of his were fakes and actually Life Model Decoys (LMD) of Mary and Richard Parker created by the Chameleon and Harry Osborn. It was Harry's effort to avenge his (supposedly) dead father, Norman Osborn. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn more about LMD and/or the characters.)
