Spider-Man is one of comics’ most popular characters of all time. First appearing in Marvel Comics’ Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962, the tale of Peter Parker was originally intended as a filler story for a canceled anthology series. But readers responded so strongly to the character created by writer Stan Lee and illustrator Steve Ditko that the “Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man” eventually became one of the most beloved characters in Marvel Comics.

There have been a few major incarnations of the superhero known as Spider-Man over the past six decades (though, as anyone who has entered the Spider-Verse knows, there are countless variations of the superhero across the multiverse).
