Synopsis

In 1962, in the pages of a comic book slated for cancellation, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave birth to one of the most enduring icons in American popular culture - the one and only Amazing Spider-Man! Turning the concept of a super hero on its head, they imbued the young, guilt-ridden Peter Parker with the fantastic powers of an arachnid and the unbearable pressures of an everyday teenager...and the combination was pure magic! So come experience Spidey's adventures from the very beginning - including the first appearances of the Daily Bugle, J. Jonah Jameson, Dr. Octopus, the Sandman, the Vulture, Electro and more!
