The Human Spider

In Spider-Man, Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) starts off with his newfound superpowers not by fighting crime and saving lives, but fighting in a wrestling cage match to win some money. With his homemade costume, he fights as The Human Spider, facing off against Bonesaw McGray (portrayed by Randy Savage). He looks just a bit amateur compared to when he wears the Spider-Man costume made for him by Tony Stark.

Spider-Gwen

In an alternate Marvel universe called Earth-65, instead of Peter Parker getting bit by a radioactive spider to become Spider-Man, it is Gwen Stacy who gets bit and gains superpowers to become Spider-Woman. Fans affectionately refer to her as Spider-Gwen.

Green Goblin

In Spider-Man 3, Harry Osborn (James Franco) is the dedicated son of Norman Osborn. Believing that his father was murdered by Spider-Man, and because Spider-Man is really his best friend Peter Parker, Harry decides to battle him directly as the new Green Goblin.

Black Cat

Felicia Hardy is the Black Cat, the daughter of a renowned cat burglar who has trained in a variety of fighting styles and acrobatics. She first dons the Black Cat costume in order to break her father out of prison.

Spider-Man

When Peter Parker gets bit by a radioactive spider on a school field trip (don’t you hate when that happens?), he develops super strength, the ability to cling to any surface, and a spidey sense. At that point, he has no choice but to build web shooters for his wrists and call himself Spider-Man.

Stan Lee

Stan Lee is a producer at Marvel Comics. You just might be familiar with his work — he co-created Spider-Man, the Hulk, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Thor, and Iron Man, just to name a few. He’s also an aspiring actor, making cameos in most of the movies. Have you spotted him?
