Rating: 4/5

Writer: Stan Lee
Artist: Steve Ditko

First appearances of Spider-Man, Aunt May, Uncle Ben, Flash Thompson. High school student Peter Parker is bitten by a radioactive spider, thus gaining the proportionate strength, speed, and agility of a spider, along with a precognitive “spider-sense.” Peter Parker becomes Spider-Man, an instant TV sensation, but coming out of a TV studio one day, Peter does not stop an escaping burglar, claiming it is not his problem. A few days later, he comes home to find his Uncle Ben has been shot, and goes to track down the murderer, only to find that it was the same burglar that he had let escape a few days earlier. Peter blames himself for his uncle’s death and realizes that with great power there must also come great responsibility.
