Peter Parker faces challenges like never before...

For over 50 years, Spider-Man has been a sensational standout in the Marvel Universe and the web-slinger will swing onto the silver screen once again in Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” this May! In celebration of his memorable history, we present Spidey’s spectacular step-by-step story…

The wallcrawler entered his 39th year of existence in 2001, and he kicked off the year by teaming up with a fellow New York hero: Daredevil. Both Spider-Man and the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen sought the Kingpin in DAREDEVIL/SPIDER-MAN #1, but found Gladiator, Stilt-Man, and Copperhead blocking their path. Kingpin hired Matt Murdock as his lawyer when the villains blew up his headquarters in DAREDEVIL/SPIDER-MAN #2, just as the Owl and the Black Widow entered the picture. The two heroes confronted the villains in the sewers of New York and discovered Copperhead as the ringmaster in DAREDEVIL/SPIDER-MAN #3. Then the two fought an army of the dead in DAREDEVIL/SPIDER-MAN #4.

Plagued by weird, disturbing Green Goblin dreams in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #25, Peter Parker succumbed to Norman Osborn’s drugged toothpaste and awoke to a real nightmare. Osborn tortured him in PETER PARKER: SPIDER-MAN #25, but our hero fought back, resisting the Green Goblin’s scheme to make him his heir.
