Amazing Spider-Man #1: The Start of Something Spectacular

Despite what you might think, Amazing Spider-Man #1 isn’t where Spider-Man got his debut – it was actually in Amazing Fantasy #15.

Because Amazing Fantasy #15 sold so well, Marvel had no choice but to give Peter Parker and his alter ego their own series.

Picking up where Amazing Fantasy #15 left off, Peter Parker and his Aunt May are still reeling from the death of Uncle Ben.

Looking for ways to earn money, Peter uses his Spider-Man persona in show business, but this only leads to more issues. Later, the Daily Bugle begins their long tradition of slandering Spider-Man, turning him into a public enemy.

Immediately, Spider-Man stood out as one of the most unique and relatable heroes ever.

Filled with self-doubt, burdened by money, clumsy, and slightly awkward, Spider-Man was a huge hit with teenagers and young adults.

Despite this being one of the most important comics ever, ASM #1 doesn’t feature any legendary villains like Doctor Octopus or Electro.

Instead, the only first appearances we get is the grumpy Daily Bugle editor-in-chief John Jonah Jameson and villain Chameleon.
