#ComicBytes: Spider-Man facts that only long-time fans would know

The web-slinging, fun-loving teen who never thinks twice before doing the right thing, Spider-Man is one of the greatest superheroes of all time.

He was bitten by a radioactive spider and ever since, has been the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, who does whatever a spider can.

His origin and motivations have been featured in multiple movies but here are some facts not many people know.

Inspiration

His inspiration was a housefly, idea not liked initially

His inspiration was a housefly, idea not liked initially

It was the year 1961 and Stan Lee was in search for Marvel's next great storyline after Fantastic Four.

A fly came in and sat on a wall in front of him. He got an idea that the next hero should be someone who could stick on vertical surfaces. Thus, Spidey was conceptualized.

Notably, Marvel head Martin Goodman did not like it much initially.

Strange Versions

Spider-Man has had some bizarre incarnations

Marvel comics adhere to the concept of a multiverse (multiple universes coexisting simultaneously) where things work differently.

These universes have their own iterations of superheroes and Spider-Man's versions go from unusual (Gwen Stacy, Deadpool, Doctor Octopus) to downright bizarre!

Some of these include Spider-Ham, who's a pig; a zombie Spider-Man; Peter Parquagh, a spy apprentice, Spider-Man J, the manga version; and an actual man-spider.
