When it comes to superheroes, every successful franchise has a unique character that defines the cast. Of course, Spider-man is one such hero whose identity has meant something different for each of his incarnations.
In 1962, Marvel Comics editor and head writer Stan Lee was looking for inspiration for a new superhero and in the same essence he said, “I didn’t have enough good superheroes… I said I needed a hero… that nobody had used before… That’s how I got Spider-Man.”
The first appearance of Spider-Man was in issue 15 of the anthology series Amazing Fantasy. Spider-Man was a flop at first, but by 1975, he had established himself as one of Marvel’s most popular characters. Spider-Man has appeared in several films, games, cartoons, and literature since his introduction.
