Who is Spider-Man?
Young Peter Parker was only six years old when he was entrusted to his Uncle Benjamin and Aunt May Parker, following the death of his parents.
He was bitten by a radioactive spider as a teenager. The bite gave him the super powers we all know: a spider’s instinct, incredible agility, the ability to stick to walls and, of course, enormous strength.
In order to remain anonymous, Spider-Man created a costume with a red and blue mask based on his favourite animal: the spider. He added useful gadgets like a spider web shooter.
It was following the death of his uncle, who was killed by a burglar that Spider-Man could have stopped earlier, that his life took a new turn. He would use his super powers for good by stopping criminals.
In order to keep his identity secret, Peter Parker became a photographer for the Daily Bugle, working for J. Jonah Jameson, who is obsessed with finding out Spider-Man’s true identity.
Spider-Man has many adventures and fights against many enemies (The Chameleon, The Jackal, Norman Osborn…). His world is filled with different characters: girlfriends, colleagues and, sometimes, another superhero.
Thanks to his intelligence and strength, he easily triumphs in the most complex situations. He has become the favourite hero of thousands of children and adults around the world.
