Spider-Man (Peter Benjamin Parker) is a fictional superhero in the Marvel Universe. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko, he first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 (Aug. 1962), and has since gone on to become one of the most popular, enduring and commercially successful superheroes worldwide, and is arguably Marvel's most famous character. When Spider-Man first appeared in the early 1960s, teenagers in superhero comic books were usually relegated to the role of sidekick to the series' main character -- Robin to Batman, Aqualad to Aquaman and Speedy to Green Arrow. The Spider-Man series broke ground by featuring Peter Parker, a teenage high-school student to whose "self-obsessions with rejection, inadequacy, and loneliness" young readers could relate.[1] Spider-Man has since appeared in various media, including several animated and live-action television series, syndicated newspaper comic strips and a successful series of films.

Marvel has featured Spider-Man in several differently-titled comic book series, the first titled The Amazing Spider-Man. Over the years, the Peter Parker character has developed from shy high school student to troubled college student to a married teacher and a member of the superhero team the New Avengers. A BusinessWeek article listed Spider-Man as one of the top ten most intelligent fictional characters in American comics.[2] In the Spider-Man film series, the character is portrayed by actor Tobey Maguire.

Γεια σου ρε Θεοδώρα,
χάρηκα που σε βρήκα από 'δώ. Με λένε Άλεξ, είμαι Γερμανός που μένει στην Ισπανία και επίσης είμαι καθηγητής γερμανικών και γουστάρω τρελά τους υπερηρόες. Έτσι βρήκα κάτι το ενδιαφέρον για το μάθημά μου (για αγγλικά) και μια ενδιαφερούσα μπλογκίστρια (κι εγώ είμαι: www.alexgahr.com), χεχε.
Χάρηκα, χαιρετίσματα από τη Μεγάλη Κανάρια!!
