Spiderman has been slinging webs and fighting crime since creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko released the Marvel Comics' Amazing Fantast #15 in August 1962. As one of the greatest superheroes of all times, Spiderman comics, most notably, "The Amazing Spiderman," have been some of the longest running, top grossing in the industry. In addition to his own series, Spiderman is a member of the Avengers and the Fantastic Four. Spiderman's true identity is unique, unlike young heroes like Robin and Bucky who are sidekicks, Spiderman is the first teenager to take the lead. So in addition to fighting crime and saving the world, Peter Parker has to deal with growing up. Whereas Spiderman is the talk of the town, regarded as agile and speedy, Parker is just another awkward, invisible kid. In addition to comics, Spidey has been spotted on TV, in the theater, and on Broadway. The first animated Spiderman TV series aired from 1967 to 1970, and there have been several renditions to follow. The most current Spiderman show is "Ultimate Spiderman" on Disney XD. In 2002, Tobey Maguire assumed the role of Peter Parker in the highly acclaimed Spiderman trilogy directed by Sam Raimi. These three DVDs are also available in Blu-ray with added features and bonuses to watch. If you're looking to bring even more action to your playroom, Spiderman action figures are a great way to let your children's imagination run away with them; there are plenty of other Spiderman toys and accessories for your little superhero. Ultimate web heads can get their very own Spiderman mask and costume to dress up on Halloween or just because.
