    Some people might be surprised to know that in Spiderman's early Marvel comic days, he didn't play the star. Instead, he was written in as the protagonist's buddy or side kick. Initially, the superhero's story lines would revolve around him being a lonely teenager/superhero who was afraid of being rejected and who felt inadequate. He was written to be relatable to teens.  As his story evolved, Spiderman would, on his own, learn what it meant to become a superhero. He was the first to quote the line, "With great power there must also come great responsibility." However, writers would later go back and give the line to Peter Parker's late Uncle Ben. 

    Eventually, Spiderman would be given his own comic book series. The Amazing Spider-Man, was the first. Incredibly successful, it would have the longest run of all the character's series. Throughout The Amazing Spider-Man, Spiderman's character would evolve. He would go from a young, lonely high school age student to a high school teacher. Much later, he would switch occupations and become a freelance photographer. As it concerned his superhero exploits, once a largely solo crime fighter, he would join the Fantastic Four and the Avengers. 

    A superhero career has become one that few others have matched. Spiderman has become one of the most known and beloved comic book superheroes of all. He has been featured in comic books, cartoons, movies and games. In a rendering of the Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time by IGN, Spiderman, also known as web-slinger, and Spidey, was listed as third. Not bad.

    In the most recent movie series, Spiderman has been played by actor, Tobey Maguire with Kirsten Dunst, playing Mary Jane, his long-time, love interest. In Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark, a Broadway play, the main character (Spiderman of course) was played by Reeve Carney. 

    Spiderman has come a long way and by all accounts will continue to live on and evolve in some way, shape or form. Too many people enjoy the character for it to be shelved. The adoration for Spidey spans generations, race and culture.
