Spider-Man is a comic book character created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for Marvel Comics in 1962. Spider-Man is actually the superhero identity of the seemingly ordinary college student Peter Parker. He received a bite from a radioactive spider, transferring him into an amazing superhero with web-spinning abilities and "Spidey-sense." The comic book later spawned a live-action television series, multiple animated series, and most recently, a successful film franchise.

Appearances

  • The Marvel comic Spidey Super Stories tied in with The Electric Company and Spider-Man's appearances on the show. Issue #31, "Star Jwas," featured a Star Wars parody in which Sam the Robot made a special appearance, announced as "Sam, the Sesame Street Robot." Combining the roles of both R2-D2 and C-3PO, Sam sought Spider-Man's assistance in an intergalactic war.
  • The book See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Smell No Evil features a "Spidey" poster in the Muppets' clubhouse, a reference to The Electric Company. The poster even sports a small Electric Company logo in one corner.
  • Spider-Man guest starred in the Muppet Babies episode "Comic Capers," produced by Marvel Animation (whose logo, seen at the end of each Muppet Babies episode, also featured a CGI Spider-Man). Baby Rowlf and Baby Skeeter entered the Spider-Man newspaper comic, and attempted to foil bank robbers. They only succeeded in irritating Stan Lee, in a live-action cameo, who pointed out there was only one Spider-Man. The closing gag featured Baby Animal and Baby Gonzo disguised as Spider-Man, with Animal on top wearing the mask, until they collide into a building and Gonzo falls from the bottom of the costume.

From Marvel Database

Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider in high school. The spider's DNA combined with his own giving him powers similar to that of the arachnid. He was soon able to climb walls, shoot webbing, lift more than his own weight, and sense imminent danger, as some spiders do. Upon the death of his Uncle Ben, Peter decided that 'With Great Power comes Great Responsibility', and thus took on the name Spider-Man.

He lives with his Aunt May in Queens and is usually in love with Mary Jane, (though he's dated quite a few ladies over the years). He is friends with many heroes and has a rogue's gallery that is larger than most of theirs. If an arch-nemesis would be named for Spider-Man, it'd arguably be The Green Goblin (Norman Osborn), who has manipulated Peter's life in so many diabolical ways over the years, Norman could be considered a Criminal Mastermind.

Always the underdog, Peter is routinely out-manned and out-gunned, but still manages to throw in the wise cracks between punches, and usually comes out on top in the end.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

Spider-Man is a human character in the Generation One continuity family.
Someday we may learn more about this mysterious Spider-Man.

Peter Parker is a photographer for a newspaper named The New York Daily Bugle under Editor-in-Chief Joe Robertson. Parker is also the friendly costumed hero Spider-Man. Sometimes he has a black costume, which he can control with his mind, and can shapeshift into normal clothes. Spider-Man can fire thread-like projectiles from his wrists, which can be used to spin a web of practically any size, or to catch thieves and other assorted rogues just like Earth insect pests. If you are inquiring as to whether or not he possesses superhuman strength, you would be advised to pay close attention, my friend, when we tell you that this is indeed the case, as a result of his bodily fluid being radioactive in nature.

He's kind of a smartass.

Doom's robot army. Somebody did a full drive by on em-

-in their own hood. What? I can "talk street"!

—Spider-Man, making a bad crossover that little bit more bearable

Fiction

Marvel Generation One comics

Note: Events from the UK-only comic stories are in italics.

In 1984, while covering the news of the new Decepticon fortress in Oregon, Peter Parker/Spider-Man intercepted Gears, who had been sent on a scouting mission, and attacked, thinking Gears was one of the invaders. When Skywarp threw a tank at a gaggle of unwary reporters, Gears saved them, convincing Spider-Man he was good.

Spider-Man teamed up with the Autobots to help rescue Sparkplug Witwicky from the Decepticons. Spider-Man noted that he has had many adventures in his long history as a superhero. Optimus Prime replied that he is sure tales of his exploits would be interesting — they could possibly even be described as amazing.

Spidey managed to get the Autobots past the army with a little subterfuge, which lasted about ten seconds. While the Autobots dealt with both the human army and some invading Decepticons, he and Gears made their way into the base. After dispatching the cassettes and Soundwave, the pair found Sparkplug, and Megatron! He used his webbing to completely mummify Megatron, but it didn't hold for very long. Megatron blasted a hole in the floor of their base, so Gears, and Sparkplug would plummet to their deaths. Webbing saved Spider and Spark, but couldn't hold Gears' weight.

Spider-Man was aghast that the Autobots would treat their comrade's apparent death so nonchalantly. He followed the Autobots back to the Ark, and Prime failed to explain in any adequate sense how Gears was neither dead nor alive right then. But Spider-Man couldn't stick around, so he left. Prisoner of War!

Megatron referenced Spider-Man's involvement just before reprimanding Starscream for challenging his authority. The Enemy Within!

Jameson was right, he's a bad influence.

Later, Spider-Man had become an iconic figure wearing a different costume, featuring a red mask with a black spiderweb pattern. Noah Acton wears a t-shirt bearing his likeness, indicating either kid appeal or counterculture status. Decepticon Graffiti!

The Transformers cartoon

Kid, move your damn hand. We're more interested in Spider-Man, not you.

In 1985, Spider-Man had become an iconic figure wearing a different costume, featuring a red mask with a black spiderweb pattern, with blue leotards and red gloves. T-shirts were made of his likeness!
Wait, is that Noah? The Autobot Run

New Avengers/Transformers

He's still wearing that costume, but the eyes are white!

Crossovers

Unseen scientist Reed Richards constructed large, transforming battle armour for various superhumans; Spider-Man received two, one based on each of his costumes, both of which could transform into a high-speed motorcycle. It is likely Richards gained the idea from Spider-Man, as it is inconcievable the encounter with the Transformers wouldn't have a lasting impact on the vigilante.

One sign of such an impact is that Spider-Man's activities seem to be focused solely on fighting hostile aliens. One of those aliens has somehow stolen and altered Spider-Man's loyal living costume; how he'll reclaim it is unknown.

Toys

Crossovers

  • Spider-Man (Marvel, 2008)
He kinda looks like Arcee, with a Spider-Man head. Venom is not a black repaint of him. (Yay!)
  • Black Costume Spider-Man (Marvel, 2008)
A black repaint of the above toy. Er, yeah. He is still not Venom!
Or you could pick... WHAT'S IN THE BOX.

This item is currently scheduled for release, but is not yet available.

Trivia

  • It's occasionally claimed that a Spider-Man story published as part of the "Clone Saga" during the 1990s features a line where Peter claims that he had never been to Oregon, thereby "clearly" establishing Spidey's guest appearance in issue 3 of the Marvel US Transformers comic as being not part of the mainstream ("616") Marvel universe. In fact, however, Peter claims (in a monologue) having never been to Utah in Spider-Man #57 (1995), since Kaine's murder of Louise Kennedy had happened there (in Spider-Man: The Lost Years #3).
