First Appearance

Amazing Fantasy #15 (Aug. 1962)


Note: Amazing Fantasy was formerly titled Amazing Adult Fantasy. Issue #15 was the first and last issue of Amazing Fantasy, until Amazing Fantasy #16 was published in 1995.


When Stan Lee presented the idea of Spider-Man to his publisher the character was considered too creepy. Knowing he had an idea that should not be wasted, Stan introduced the character in the final issue of a book slated for cancellation. The character would resurface roughly one year later in Amazing Spider-Man #1 (March, 1963).


Creator
Stan Lee & Steve Ditko
Origin

While attending a public exhibition on safe nuclear power; high school student Peter Parker was bitten by a spider that had been exposed to a deadly dose of radiation. Instead of dying from the bite Parker gained the proportionate strength and agility of a spider.


Capitalizing on his new found abilities Parker became a masked professional wrestler - a performance which attracted the attention of an entertainment agent. After completing a television performance in his masked identity Parker failed to stop a fleeing thief; a decision which would in the future haunt him.A few days later, Parker arrived at his Queens, New York home to discover that his uncle Ben had been killed by a burglar. Distraught by the death of his beloved guardian he vowed to capture the criminal. Easily apprehended the killer, Parker recognized the criminal as the thief he allowed to escape at the television studio. Realizing that his inaction inadvertently doomed his uncle, Parker took to heart the advice that with great power comes great responsibility. Vowing to honor Uncle Ben's memory Parker pledged his life to fighting crime and injustice. Armed with his superhuman abilities and scientific genius the reluctant superhero struggles with sinister villains, making financial ends meet, and maintaining some semblance of a normal life while fulfilling his destiny as the Amazing Spider-Man.
