Since his debut in 1962, Spider-Man has never been out of the spotlight. After nearly 60 years, fans are more excited than ever to hear more stories about the wall-crawler.
He is so popular, there are film companies that are literally fighting over him at this exact moment. It was a nightmare to get him into the MCU and it's even harder to keep him in it. The reason why is simple - people just can't get enough of Spidey.
Since the character is universally loved, you'd assume comic fans know everything there is to know about him; the first supervillain he faced, his lesser-known stories, what Sam Raimi would have done if made Spider-Man 4, and so forth.
However, there are some really basic questions about Spider-Man that the biggest fans can't tell you. If you ask a hundred Marvel fans who Peter Parker's first love was, I guarantee 99% of them will get it wrong. (Nope, not her either). Even if you've seen every movie and love the games, you might be oblivious to just how freakishly strong Spider-Man is. Also, did you ever wonder what happened to the arachnid that gave Peter Parker his spiderpowers?
All these questions and more will be answered in this list.
