Mr. Raymond Warren was Peter Parker's science teacher at Midtown High School. He appeared to have a multi-sided attitude towards his top student, Peter Parker. In Amazing Fantasy #15, he commends Peter on his good work, and assures him that he will be sure to get a scholarship if he continues as he is going. In Amazing Spider-Man #2, Mr. Warren berates Peter for ignoring his experiment to read "lurid magazines" (i.e. "Now" magazine, which has the request for Vulture pictures which pique's Peter's attention). But in the backup story in that same issue, Mr. Warren warmly recommends Peter as an assistant to Professor Cobbwell. Cobbwell subsequently becomes a target for the Tinkerer's spying ring, but that's not Mr. Warren's fault.

In Amazing Spider-Man #8, it is Mr. Warren who introduces Mr. Petty of I.C.M. and his "Living Brain". Mr. Warren subsequently asks Peter to take the machine's output (presumably containing the answer to Spider-Man's identity) home to translate. Actually, it's funny that Peter has time to translate ALL the inputs into mathematical symbols during class - but then doesn't seem to have time to translate the single output from symbols, it will take so long he has to do it overnight! But enough nit-picking.

In Amazing Spider-Man #15, Mr. Warren again berates Peter. This time, Peter has screwed up his experiment, in fact because his hands are shaking thanks to Kraven the Hunter's jungle poisons. Actually, Mr. Warren is more sad than angry, seeing his favourite student make an atypical error in his work.

That's all for the Amazing Appearances. Mr. Warren does turn up again in Untold Tales of Spider-Man #25, where he offers to introduce Peter to his brother, Professor Miles Warren, during the open day at Empire State University attended by Peter Parker and other soon-to-graduate Midtown High School students.

Note: Mr. Warren's first name, Raymond, first appears in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Volume 11 (2009).


Mr. Warren showed up to Peter’s ten year high school reunion, which was crashed by Venom (Angelo Fortunato). (Marvel Knights Spider-Man (vol. 1) #7) By the time that Venom killed Seymour O’Reilly, Raymond was evacuated. (Marvel Knights Spider-Man (vol. 1) #8)


Many years later, Peter took Miles Morales to the Coffee Bean at Empire State University. They ran into “professor” Warren in the check out line and Peter introduced them to each other. Raymond was briefly surprised to hear that the young man’s name was Miles but the subject changed when he explained that he was meeting a colleague. He was meeting with Professor Seymour Krepps, who was helping him inventory his brother’s former lab.

Later, both Spider-Men defeated a strangely mindless Jackal rampaging across the university. Raymond and Seymour investigated the Jackal’s laboratory, with an unknown area that held a suspension chamber. Dr. Krebbs surmised that he set the creature free after the power to the main lab was switched on. Raymond was saddened that another of his brother’s monsters had been set free but was grateful that no one had been injured. Spider-Miles disagreed after finding a charred skeleton under some rubble. (The Spectacular Spider-Men (vol. 1) #1)
