Spiderman is a very famous superhero in the Marvel world. His notoriety was given by his appearances in comic books, video games, movies and cartoons as well. Like the rest of the other Marvel superhero, Spiderman was created by Stan Lee.
Peter Parker is a young and promising student that is specializing in genetics at his University. He lives and was raised by his uncle and aunt because from an early age he becomes an orphan. Once, in a school trip at a science center, Peter is bitten by a radioactive spider and so he develops the abilities of a spider such as wall crawling, agility and web shooting. At first, he uses his powers to win money in organized fights to help his poor family. One evening the organizer refuses to pay him and in return, Peter refuses to stop a thief that was stealing from the organizer. When Peter walks outside to meet his uncle, he finds him shot in the street by the thief he refused to stop. Full of anger and sorrow, Peter learns that “with great power comes great responsibility” and decides to use his power in order to do good.
Peter lives in Queens with his aunt May. He is in love with his neighbor, Mary Jane Watson, but they never really date. Moreover, Peter’s best friend is Harry Osborn, son of Norman Osborn, a rich industrialist, owner of Oscorp. A great enemy of both Spiderman and Osborn Sr. is Wilson Fisk, a very rich businessman and philanthropist that secretly is the leader of organized crime on the East Coast, also known as Kingpin. There are other significant villains such as Otto Octavius, aka The Octopus, Shocker and also Venom and Carnage. Sometimes, Spiderman is in difficulty when friends of his become villains such as Dr. Conners when he becomes a mutated lizard after running an experiment on himself and also Harry when he becomes the Green Goblin in order to take revenge for his father’s death.
Spiderman is not really seen as a hero in his city. On the contrary, some people, such as J Jonah Jameson, the boss of Daily Bugle newspaper, regard him as the real villain of the city and tries to expose him. Unlike the citizens, the other heroes actually admire Spiderman and often work with him. Spiderman works from time to time with heroes such as Captain America, Ironman and the X-men.

In the first three parts also star Willem Dafoe, James Franco and Kirsten Dunst. The 4th will have different actors and a different plot.
