Who has not heard of spiderman. He is famous on a world wide scale. Young and old are familiar with the web slinger. Out of all the different superheroes that have came out in the past and new ones that are out today, there are not that many who can hold a candle up to spiderman. This superhero is very different than your typical hero and that is what makes him so famous.
Peter Parker was a normal geeky young boy before he became spiderman. Having no parents he lived with his grandparents who both dearly loved him and wanted to see him succeed in live.
Peter has always been a humble guy. This makes him a real superhero, not a thick headed and always trying to fight hero, who we all are familiar with. Humbleness makes Peter think out situations instead of barging in looking for a fight.
Peter Parker’s transformation to Spider-Man came in the form of a spider bite. This hits home to fans, getting a spider bite is a very common occurrence that anyone can relate too; spiders are also a fear for many people.
Showing the way Peter got his super powers makes him connect with the audience. What disconnects audience are different superheroes who have cool powers, but nobody knows how they got it. And because you never know about their personalities, you cannot connect with them.
Spider-Man is a fascinating character to watch and really think about. His super powers are very desirable, and a common answer to the question “If you had a super power, what would it be?” He has the ability and agility to jump incredibly high, and climb walls. He can also swing from structure to structure with his web-spitting.
One of the more important powers that spiderman possesses is not his agility, even though that helps a whole lot. What I am talking about is his spider senses. Everytime danger is nearby, Peter Parker gets an internal alert that makes him aware of his surroundings.
Peter Parker has a job he likes, which is being a photographer. But his boss Jameson makes his work a living hell. What makes it so difficult for Peter is that he needs to take pictures of spiderman, but Jameson hates spiderman and thinks he is an abomination to the city.
Spiderman is also very funny and makes fun of his crazy enemies all the time. This sometimes agitates them which makes their judgement more cloudy and easy for spiderman to win. The enemies themselves are interesting and in their own right and have super powers that could rival spiderman his own powers.
