Hello, true believers! Today, I’ll be showing you an infographic about your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, the best super-hero that ever existed. I grew up reading Spider-Man comic books and watching the cartoon, and it has since then become a profound staple of my childhood. One of my favorite lines in any movie is Uncle Ben’s “With great power, comes great responsibility.” Let that sink in…
As many of you know, Spider-Man begins his existence as Peter Parker, a nerdy nerd that nerds don’t even want to nerd around. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Parker gains super powers that include the ability to cling to most surfaces, a heightened sense of awareness (Spidey-Sense), and super strength. Also, because Peter Parker is such a nerdy nerd, he creates a bunch of useful technologies for himself which aid in Spider-Man’s crime-fighting escapades such as the web-shooters.
Spider-Man first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962. An original copy of this issue can sell for almost $300,000 depending on the condition. So, if you’re in Granddad’s attic going through old stuff and you stumble upon this comic book, snatch it up and claim it. It’s your birth right. Then sell it, and don’t give Granddad any of that money, because it shouldn’t have been kept in that raggedy old box in the first place.
