Over half a century after his initial debut in Stan Lee’s Amazing Fantasy #15, Spider-Man remains one of the most iconic figures in all of pop culture. Beloved by adults and children alike, there’s something about Peter Parker’s status as both an everyman and one of Marvel’s greatest heroes that’s endeared the character to audiences worldwide. With almost 52 years’ worth of stories to his name, it goes without saying that Spider-Man comics have played host to some of the greatest, most important stories in the history of the medium.

Self-driving cars, selfie sticks, drones, touchscreen devices, e-cigarettes, jetpacks, and many other things seem like fairly modern inventions. Indeed, most of their "inventors" list them as newly invented and even go as far as seeking patents. But the fact is, many of these "inventions" have already been in existence for quite some time. They may have earlier lookalikes that ended up not going into production or that went into limited production due to one reason or another. Some also made it into full production but were recalled due to poor sales.



Penned by one of the all-time great Spider-Man writers J. Michael Straczynski, Spider-Man: Back in Black deals with the fallout from the earth-shattering events of "Civil War", in which Peter Parker publicly reveals his identity as Spider-Man in an effort to win the public’s favor in the conflict. As was always Peter’s greatest fear however, it doesn’t take long for his loved ones to find themselves in the line of fire after Aunt May is shot by an assassin. With May in critical condition, Peter drops his usual happy-go-lucky attitude and goes full vigilante, beating his way through a list of names to find the man responsible for the attack.

Marvel Knights Spider-Man

With Mark Millar’s talent for balancing the inherent bleakness of his stories with genuine humor and likable characters, the prolific writer was undoubtedly the perfect fit for his 12-issue run on Marvel Knights: Spider-Man. Bringing with it the mature themes and darkness synonymous with the Marvel Knights imprint, the story follows Spider-Man as he struggles to protect his family and friends after an unknown villain learns his secret identity. Soon finding himself up against a new, improved version of the Sinister Six -- now the Sinister Twelve -- Marvel Knights: Spider-Man puts its titular hero at the center of one of his most volatile adventures to date.

The Hobgoblin Saga

With at least six characters having taken up the mantle of Hobgoblin over the years, the classic villain’s history has unfortunately become muddied since the character’s inception in 1983’s The Amazing Spider-Man #238. Thanks to the constantly shifting identity of the character, it’s become somewhat tough to keep track of exactly who the Hobgoblin is at any given point in time. Back in the character’s early days however, readers were introduced to one of Spidey’s most intimidating villains to date in the form of Roderick Kingsley -- a criminal who unintentionally stumbles upon the Green Goblin’s lair, appropriating his specialized gear and advanced tech in the process.

Despite the fact that comic books fans have grown accustomed to large-scale crossovers and Universe-wide events over the years, there’s something about “Spider-Verse” that just feels so unique. Managing to remain both epic and insular at the same time, the story explores the Spider-Man mythos on a Multiversal scale, while featuring relatively few characters outside the world -- or worlds, as the case may be -- of Spider-Man. Bringing together the various incarnations of the webhead from across the Multiverse, “Spider-Verse” sees the return of Morlun, one of the most terrifying villains Spidey has ever faced, as well as his family, the Inheritors, as they embark on a violent crusade to consume the life force of every Spider Totem in the Multiverse.

One of the great things about Spider-Man as a comic book character is the sheer variety of different directions his books can go in, and still feel like they belong in his world. Light and breezy? Sounds good! Dark and gritty? Sure! Heartfelt and emotional? Go ahead! With that said, “The Conversation” easily falls into the latter category, and stands out as one of Peter Parker’s most touching stories, proving once and for all that comic books aren’t just about action and plot, but people.

After being beaten half to death by Morlun during the events of “Coming Home”, May finally learns that Peter is Spider-Man, and the issue focuses solely on the resulting conversation between the two characters. The pair commiserate over their mutual feelings of guilt over Uncle Ben’s death, with Aunt May revealing that an argument between the couple led to him leaving the house on the night of his murder. After so many years’ worth of secrets and stifled feelings between May and Peter, seeing them take an issue to clear the air and open up to each other is both incredibly satisfying and unexpectedly touching. Taking place in The Amazing Spider-Man #38, the issue really highlights the sweetness between May and Peter, and reaffirms exactly what it is Spider-Man fights for in the first place. In short, the issue is J. Michael Straczynski at his very best.



Taking place over 14 issues across several different titles in the Spider-Man franchise, 1993’s “Maximum Carnage” remains one of the largest-scale events in the history of the character. With several writers sharing scripting duties across the arc’s various titles, the story sees a recently depowered Cletus Kasady escape from Ravenscroft Asylum, becoming Carnage once again thanks to the remaining traces of the alien symbiote in his blood. Not content with wreaking havoc alone however, Carnage also frees the equally deranged Shriek, initiating a merciless killing spree across New York after bringing Carrion, Doppelganger and Demogoblin on board.

To start with, a year before the first iPhone was released, LG had introduced a full touchscreen phone. Even that was not the first, though. The world's first touchscreen phone was IBM's Simon, which was released in 1992. And touchscreen technology even predates the Simon. The first touchscreen device was a tablet made by E.A. Johnson in 1965 that was used by air traffic controllers until 1995. Bent Stumpe and Frank Beck made the first capacitive touchscreen in the early '70s. Unlike Johnson's tablet, it could not be pressed with the fingers. Instead, it required a stylus. In 1971, Samuel Hurst developed the first resistive touchscreen, which he called the "elograph." It responded to the fingers as well as a stylus. In 1985, HP invented the world's first touchscreen computer, called the HP-150. In 1993, Apple also released its first touchscreen device—the Newton Personal Digital Assistant. The product was a flop, recording low sales.

Taking place in 1993’s Spectacular Spider-Man #200, it felt appropriate that the death of Harry Osborn would be saved for a milestone issue of the comic given the complex history between Harry and Peter. In previous issues, Harry had taken up the mantle of Green Goblin after discovering the truth about both his late father and his best friend’s secret identities. Blaming Spider-Man for the death of his father, Harry quickly descended into madness, hoping to hurt Peter both physically and mentally in a bitter campaign of vengeance. Despite all of this though, there was clearly still a little piece of Harry reluctant to kill Peter, with the Goblin opting out of finishing off Spider-Man several times throughout their skirmishes.

This would begin to make sense of the 5C, which so far seems to be a sales disappointment for Apple. Perhaps the important thing about the 5C is that it is not the 5S, so that down the road it can be discounted without putting price pressure on Apple’s flagship.

Teaming up with several heroes, including Captain America, Anti-Venom and Agent Venom, the Spider Queen is eventually foiled, with a grateful Manhattan publicly thanking Spider-Man for his heroic actions throughout the incident. Slott’s writing manages to use the much maligned aspects of Spider-Man’s history to his advantage, giving convoluted characters like Kaine their due in the event. Combined with some awesome action sequences (seeing MJ with spider-powers is particularly fun) and energetic art by Humberto Ramos, “Spider-Island” remains one of the most memorable arcs in Dan Slott’s great run on The Amazing Spider-Man.



Another great story arc in J. Michael Straczynski’s incredible run on The Amazing Spider-Man, “Coming Home” also happened to be the first arc in Straczynski’s ongoing run. Kicking things off with the revelation that the spider responsible for biting Peter Parker did so intentionally, hoping to pass on its powers before dying, Spider-Man is revealed as a “Spider-Totem” -- a multidimensional entity connected to the Web of Life. The wall-crawler is then hunted by Morlun, a relentless energy vampire who feeds on these Totems, much to Peter’s chagrin. Truly giving Spider-Man the fight of his life, Morlun beats him to a bloody pulp, forcing the hero to flee on several occasions, eventually threatening innocents to bring the webslinger out of hiding.

Almost as recognizable as the wall-crawler himself, there’s a visual and thematic symmetry between Venom and Spider-Man that make them the perfect adversaries, with their long-held hatred of each other serving as one of Marvel’s greatest rivalries. With that in mind, it’s odd to think that Eddie Brock’s Venom didn’t fully debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #300 in 1988, a full 26 years after the hero’s initial creation. The issue opens with a terrified Mary Jane claiming that a creature wearing Spider-Man’s black costume broke into their apartment, after which Peter begins to feel that someone is following him.

As it turns out, Peter’s stalker is none other than bitter ex-journalist Eddie Brock, who blames Parker for his recent fall from grace. Bonded with the alien symbiote previously worn by Spider-Man, Eddie Brock becomes Venom, hoping to exact revenge on Spidey by murdering him. The resulting fight between the two characters is the stuff of comic book legend, with Todd McFarlane’s jaw-dropping art giving the battle weight and substance, kicking Venom’s comic book career off with a huge bang. In fact, the character quickly became so popular that he’s since found success separate from Spider-Man altogether, going on to have several solo series’ and reinventions over the years -- including the feature film Venom, set to release later this year.



One of four entries in the “Colors” series consisting of Daredevil: Yellow, Captain America: White and Hulk: Gray, Spider-Man: Blue is the crowning achievement of the series conceived by writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale. Spanning six issues released from July 2002 to April 2003, the story takes a pensive look back at the iconic relationship between Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy before her untimely death at the hands of the Green Goblin. Taking place on Valentine’s Day, Spider-Man: Blue sees Peter dictate his thoughts about Gwen into a tape recorder, revisiting several key moments from their relationship through a nostalgic, albeit melancholic lens.

In the two issues following Marla’s death, The Amazing Spider-Man #655 and #656, Spider-Man is tormented by nightmares of those he’s lost over the years, many of whom criticize the hero for his failure to save them. With haunting appearances from major characters in Spider-Man’s life from Uncle Ben to Gwen Stacy to Jean DeWolff, Peter’s mind is pushed through a nightmarish hellscape of guilt and sadness trying to process the countless deaths in his life. The story’s opening is particularly effective, showing a silent Peter Parker and J. Jonah Jameson getting ready for Marla’s funeral, depicting the quiet despair of loss with scary accuracy. In other words, think of this as the comic book version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s “The Body”.




Despite the fact that Marvel’s Ultimate Universe is far more willing to permanently kill off their heroes than their Earth-616 counterparts, the famous “Death of Spider-Man” arc in Ultimate Spider-Man sparked worldwide interest -- and some outrage -- by even those outside of the comic book fandom, with several huge news outlets covering the story in the lead up to Peter Parker’s demise. Even though the death happened outside of Marvel’s mainstream continuity, the idea that such a beloved character would meet his end was a bitter pill to swallow for some, and the outpouring of love for the wall-crawler only made Peter’s eventual death all the more powerful.

Dying from injuries sustained during an intense final stand with Norman Osborn, Electro, Sandman, Vulture and Kraven the Hunter, Peter Parker’s death was a real gut punch moment -- particularly since he dies in the presence of MJ, Aunt May, Johnny Storm and Gwen Stacy -- but also gave the character an emotionally resonant and heartfelt send off. In addition to this, Peter’s sacrifice would go on to inspire a young Miles Morales to take up the Spider-Man mantle, ushering in a whole new era of Ultimate Spider-Man, giving Marvel one of its most popular new characters in years.


Although it’s not your typical Spider-Man adventure, “The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man” is one of the most widely loved entries into the webhead’s canon nonetheless, consistently appearing in the conversation surrounding Spidey’s greatest stories.

About as classic as they come, the introduction of the Sinister Six is everything fans love about classic Spidey comics. Created by the iconic pairing of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the Sinister Six made their debut in 1964’s The Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1. Formed by a recently-escaped Doctor Octopus -- bitter over his multitude of losses at the hands of the wall-crawler -- the Sinister Six comprised of half a dozen of Spidey’s most fearsome foes, including Doc Ock, Mysterio, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman and Vulture. Uniting under one single purpose, to kill Spider-Man, the group of villains resorts to kidnapping Betty Brant and Aunt May to draw their prey out. With each character hoping to deliver the fatal blow to the wall-crawler however, the gang agrees to attack their foe one by one to give each of them a shot at defeating him.

Another classic story penned by Stan Lee, “How Green Was My Goblin” serves as an essential entry into the Spider-Man canon, marking the occasion that Spider-Man’s greatest enemy finally learns his true identity, which would go on to spell disaster for Peter Parker. Since his first appearance in 1964’s The Amazing Spider-Man #14, the mystery of who exactly the Green Goblin was an important aspect of the comic, with Lee finally giving his readers -- as well as Peter Parker himself -- the answers they were clamoring for in The Amazing Spider-Man #39.

Slow growth around the world won't hurt the U.S. all that much. American exports might flatten out or even dip, but that would be offset by lower imports of petroleum because of sinking oil prices. So the trade deficit is unlikely to get further out of whack.

Market watchers were forced to digest the reality of negative 2.9% GDP for the first quarter of the year. All of a sudden, everyone’s forecasts seemed too rosy—or at least too smooth—compared to the lumpy reality. This led to a raft of second-guessing on the timing of the Fed’s eventual exit from its bond-buying stimulus program. We went from confidence to WTF? in a space of a few weeks, with all the asset class rotations and market corrections that come along with a fresh bout of uncertainty.

对于英国广播公司文化部门来说,戛纳期间堆满了工作,而派对是少之又少。但是,影展之外的电影节给小镇描上了醉人的红色。在2013年,我们试图联系白雪香槟酒庄(Piper Heidsieck)计算电影节期间香槟的消费数量,但作为提供“官方饮品”的白雪香槟酒庄拒绝回应。不过看看克鲁瓦塞特(Croisette)大道上那些微醺的脸庞以及踉跄的步态,我们可以合理的推测香槟的消费数量十分庞大。电影节的第一周,在为马提欧?加洛尼影片《故事的故事》(Tale of Tales)举办的派对上香槟成河,狂欢者嗨至凌晨。次日早晨,英国广播公司的瑞贝卡?劳伦斯与某位明星进行访谈,询问其在采访前休息了多久。这位明星只是眯起了惺忪的眼睛,抬起了2根手指。
This raises the risk of heavy rains and flooding, scientists pointed out, because warmer temperatures would lead to more water vapour in the world’s atmosphere.



In terms of pure iconography, “Spider-Man No More” is one of the most instantly recognizable issues of The Amazing Spider-Man ever created, with the image of Peter Parker walking away from his discarded Spider-Man suit etching itself deep into the public’s collective consciousness. Taking place in The Amazing Spider-Man #50, “Spider-Man No More” sees a worn-out Peter Parker finally give up the mantle of Spider-Man, feeling unappreciated and under attack by the very city he’s trying to protect. While the storyline is one of Spider-Man’s most well-known however, many forget that “Spider-Man No More” also introduced one of Marvel’s biggest villains, the Kingpin, who capitalizes on Spidey’s absence by making moves to strengthen his criminal empire.

After learning of Kingpin’s rise to power -- and saving a man who bears an uncanny resemblance to Uncle Ben in the process -- Peter ultimately realizes that he can’t give up being a hero, stealing his costume back from J. Jonah Jameson and resuming his career as New York’s friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. The storyline has since become so iconic that the plot was even adapted for the big screen in 2004’s Spider-Man 2, with the movie even recreating John Romita’s iconic image of Spider-Man’s costume in the garbage.



After receiving a call from a concerned Madame Web in The Amazing Spider-Man #229, Spider-Man learns that the Juggernaut plans to kidnap her at the request of the villain Black Tom Cassidy, who himself hopes to use Web to defeat the X-Men. Granted a mystical force by the demon Cyttorak that renders him completely unstoppable, Spider-Man is unable to subdue the Juggernaut by conventional means, forcing him to improvise to take down the rampaging villain.

In that meeting, he told Jacobs that such problems would decrease, as China is reforming its management system in science and technology, according to a statement by the association on Friday.

Amazing Fantasy 15 header

One of the great comic book stories of all time, there’s no denying the impact that Spider-Man’s first appearance had on the world of comics. Debuting in Amazing Fantasy #15 way back in 1962, it’s amazing just how well Peter Parker’s origin story holds up more than five decades later. Created by Stan Lee with classic art by Steve Ditko, it’s almost impossible to find a person unfamiliar with the events of the issue. With that said, it’s easy to forget just how much happens in Amazing Fantasy #15. From the introduction of Peter Parker and his life, to the famous radioactive spider bite, to the death of Uncle Ben and the subsequent birth of Spider-Man, there’s no shortage of iconic, quotable moments in just eleven short pages -- an amazing feat for any comic book.

Moving at a breakneck pace, Stan Lee’s effortlessly charming script captivated readers across the globe thanks to Peter Parker’s awkward relatability, with his eventual decision to become a force for good despite his tragic origins becoming one of Spider-Man’s most notable characteristics. Optimistic, strong, smart and compassionate, Amazing Fantasy #15 solidified Spider-Man as the definitive superhero, making it perhaps the most important Marvel comic ever written.

Easily one of the most beloved stories in the entirety of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s legendary run on The Amazing Spider-Man, "If This Be My Destiny…” is a 3-issue story taking place between The Amazing Spider-Man #31 and #33. Amongst the most dramatic stories in Spidey’s early career, the storyline sees the introduction of the devious “Master Planner” -- later revealed as classic villain Doctor Octopus -- as he steals several pieces of high-tech equipment. It’s also discovered by Peter that Doc Ock has the only cure for an extremely sick Aunt May, who’s poisoned following a blood transfusion from Peter’s radioactive blood, causing Spider-Man to spring into action.

This technology previously existed for arms, but legs are rather more complicated. And since a misread signal can send you jumping off a bridge or in front of a moving car, thought-controlled legs need more stringent programming than equivalent arms. As one of the researchers delicately put it, “If you're using a bionic arm and it misbehaves, the elbow may move slightly. If the prosthetic leg misbehaves . . . that could be quite a safety issue.”

Holly Hunter reportedly keeps her best actress award, which she won for her portrayal of Ada McGrath in the 1994 New Zealand film, The Piano, at the New York offices of Joel and Ethan Coen.

The story ultimately ushered in a whole new era of comic books, with creators taking more and more risks with their characters and telling darker, more mature stories. The impact that Gwen Stacy’s death had on popular culture tends to overshadow the story’s other triumphs however, with many forgetting that the Green Goblin also met his end in the arc after being impaled by his own glider -- a moment perfectly recreated in 2002’s Spider-Man movie. Created by the dream team of Gerry Conway and Gil Kane, “The Night Gwen Stacy Died” is unquestionably the single greatest Spider-Man story ever told.
