Woot? He tried to play the hero without "Power and Responsibility". He failed. That changed the whole origin of Spider-Man.

Peter walked away when he could have helped stop the thief. Ben saw someone committing a crime, about to run past him, and stepped up to do something about it, because in that moment, he had the power to do so. You say it's dumb, I would say it was brave.
It is not brave. Really it's dumb and stupid. It would be brave if he had called the police and identified the guy.
And which power had Ben? Was he stronger? No. Was he faster? No.
