weak rip-off of Superman, the one true superhero. Also incorperates elements of Batman. A Clark Kent-ish kid, Peter Parker, develops superpowers in his teens (like Clark Kent) loses his uncle in an act of random crime (ala Batman) and dedicates his life to fighting crime (like Batman). Wears a blue and red costume (like Superman) works for a newspaper (like Superman) and has a rouges gallery that features a fat, bald multi-millionaire criminal (like Superman). Alter ego has to put up with abuse from cranky newspaper edior (like Superman). Infact, there isn't much torn from the pages of DC comics here. Spiderman is a rip-off. Much like every Marvel character has relied on DC Comics genuis, Spiderman is a poor mans Superman/Batman.
"Spiderman is the coolest character ever!"
"No. He's a rip-off of Superman and Batman. He sucks..."
