Exactly 50 years ago, in the summer of 1962, the first Spider-Man story was published in the monster comics series ”Amazing Fantasy“. Superheroes with private lives – the device that his creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko used for Spider-Man was as simple as it was ingenious: because he is bitten by a radioactive spider, the lanky teenager Peter Parker is turned into a hero against his will who from then on has to deal with the great responsibility of being a superhero. During the fifty years of his existence, Spider-Man has experienced his adventures in comic books and animated and live-action movies, has fought countless battles, lost friends, changed outfits and become an icon. Great artists have contributed to this: from Steve Ditko, of course, who created the fundamentals of the character, John Romita and his son John Romita Jr., Todd McFarlane to Joe Quesada. They gave Spider-Man a unique face and created a legend that still fascinates young and old alike.
