Spider-Man is a fictional superhero appearing in American comics created by Marvel Comics. The was developed by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, and first appeared inside the anthology comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (Aug. 1962) from the Silver Ages of Comic Books. Lee and Ditko conceived the type just as one orphan being raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and as an adolescent, suffering the standard struggles of adolescence in addition to those of a costumed crime-fighter. Spider-Man's creators gave him super agility and strength, to be able to embrace most surfaces, shoot spider-webs using wrist-mounted devices of their own invention, that she calls "web-shooters", and answer danger quickly regarding his "spider-sense", enabling him to combat his foes. And later in their life founded his very own company call Parker Industries.

When Spider-Man first appeared in the early 1960s, teenagers in superhero comics were usually relegated to the role of sidekick for the protagonist. The Spider-Man series broke ground by featuring Peter Parker, the highschool student behind Spider-Man's secret identity sufficient reason for whose "self-obsessions with rejection, inadequacy, and loneliness" young readers could relate.[1] While Spider-Man had all of the makings of the sidekick, unlike previous teen heroes like Bucky and Robin, Spider-Man had no superhero mentor like Captain America and Batman; he thus needed to learn for himself that "with great power there must also come great responsibility"-a line included in a text box from the final panel from the first Spider-Man story but later retroactively related to his guardian, the late Uncle Ben.

Marvel has featured Spider-Man in several comic book series, the first and longest-lasting being titled The astounding Spider-Man. Over time, the Peter Parker character is promoting from shy, nerdy senior high school student to troubled but outgoing college student, to married high school teacher to, inside the late 2000s, one particular freelance photographer. From the 2010s, he joins the Avengers, Marvel's flagship superhero team. Spider-Man's nemesis Doctor Octopus also took for the identity for a story arc spanning 2012-2014, carrying out a body swap plot through which Peter seems to die.[2] Separately, Marvel in addition has published books featuring alternate versions of Spider-Man, including Spider-Man 2099, which features the adventures of Miguel O'Hara, the Spider-Man into the future; Ultimate Spider-Man, which features the adventures of the teenaged Peter Parker within an alternate universe; and supreme Comics Spider-Man, which depicts the teenager Miles Morales, who occupies the mantle of Spider-Man after Ultimate Peter Parker's supposed death.
