Peter Parker and his alter ego, Spider-Man were created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962. The character first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 from Marvel Comics. Issue #15 was meant to be the last issue of the series, so they just filled it with the “throw away” concept of Spider-Man.
The character was a runaway hit, and later appeared in the Fantastic Four comics as well as his own series. Spider-Man has headlined several comic book titles, including Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man, Web of Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Sensational Spider-Man and Superior Spider-Man.
Spider-Man has headlined several video games including an Atari Game in the 80’s, and also appeared as a playable character in other video games such as Marvel: Ultimate Alliance.

Spider-Man has appeared in 8 animated TV series, 3 live action TV series, as well as 6 live action appearances in movies. The movie rights were locked up for a number of years before finally settling in at Sony Pictures. Sony released three Spider-Man movies before rebooting the franchise as The Amazing Spider-Man, then released two movies in that series. Now, Sony has partnered with Marvel Studios (Disney) in order to co-produce a new series and allow Spider-Man to be a part of the MCU.
Spider-Man has been portrayed in live action by Danny Seagren, Nicholas Hammond, Shinji Todō , Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Tom Holland. The most current Spider-Man in the movies is arguably the most faithful depiction. This version, played by Tom Holland premiered in Captain America: Civil War. The next Spider-Man movie is titled Spider-Man: Homecoming and is the first in the new series set in the MCU which will feature Robert Downey Jr in a supporting role as Tony Stark/Iron-Man.
