Decathlon Team

"What is the heaviest naturally-occurring element?"
"Hydrogen's the lightest. That's not the question. Okay."
Liz Toomes and Charles Murphy[src]

Murphy was a member of the Midtown School of Science and Technology's Academic Decathlon Team. As such, he took part in rehearsals before the nationals, although he had a tendency to give unrelated answers to questions.[1]

Trip to D.C.

"We're freakin' screwed!"
―Charles Murphy[src]

Murphy joined the rest of his team for the Academic Decathlon's nationals in Washington, D.C., expressing amazement at the hotel they were staying in. The night before the nationals, Murphy went to the hotel's swimming pool with the other students.

The day after, Murphy went to the nationals with his team. Despite Peter Parker's absence, they were victorious. As a reward, Roger Harrington took his students, including Murphy, to the Washington Monument. However, while they were in the elevator, the Chitauri Energy Core in Ned Leeds' backpack released an energy pulse, damaging the elevator. Although Murphy was convinced they would die, he and the other students were successfully rescued by Spider-Man.[1]

Back to Midtown

"It was tight, like a Bon Jovi concert!"
―Charles Murphy[src]

Murphy safely returned to Midtown School of Science and Technology where he was interviewed for the school TV channel and displayed quite an enthusiasm while describing what had happened. Following the homecoming party, Murphy and the rest of the team were congratulated by Roger Harrington for their victory and applauded as Michelle Jones was appointed the new head of the team.[1]

Alien Invasion

During a bus trip to MOMA, Ned Leeds suddenly warned his classmates about an alien warship, which caught Murphy and everyone's attention.[2]


In 2018, Murphy was one of the survivors of the Snap, and had graduated Midtown School of Science and Technology by 2024.[3]
