Spider-Man

Spider-Man is a fictional comic book super-hero created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko for Marvel Comics in 1962. He was introduced in issue #15 of the anthology series Amazing Fantasy and became an overnight sensation appearing in his own ongoing comic book series The Amazing Spider-Man in March of the following year. Spider-Man's real name is Peter Parker - a nerdy teenage boy from Forest Hills in Queens who lives with his Aunt May and Uncle Ben. An ill-fated visit to a science expo finds Peter being bitten by a radioactive spider, which grants him the proportionate strength of a spider as well as the ability to scale walls and a psionic early warning system which he refers to his as his spider-sense. Initially using his newfound abilities for the sake of profit, Peter fails to take notice of a common criminal who would later murder his Uncle Ben. Peter's attitude changes and he adopts his uncle's credo, "With great power comes great responsibility" as his personal mantra. After outfitting himself with a red and blue costume and a set of mechanical web-shooters, Peter Parker - the Amazing Spider-Man swings off into the pages of history as one of the most infamous and recognizable pop culture icons of all time.
