In August of 1962, Stan Lee’s favorite creation, Spider-Man, first graced the Comic Book scene. When young Peter Parker first made his appearance in Amazing Fantasy Vol. 15, he became the first teenage superhero that wasn’t tied to anyone else as a sidekick. Peter had to go through the trouble of learning how to control his powers while also being a kid and going through everyday kid interactions. He had to become a hero while also going through puberty, learning to drive, and looking for a date to the prom.
Spider-Man instantly became a fan favorite for lovers of Marvel Comics, and was one of the first hero that anyone could really see themselves in. Every iteration of the Wall-Crawler on film has given us a different and new take of the hero. I myself am a massive Spider-Man fan, and for reasons likely similar to others. I can see myself in the person and in the hero and I don’t have to feel alone knowing that.
For this Spider-Man day I am going to be ranking all 8 of the Spider-Man movies, sans Venom, in my order from least to best. I hope you follow along and enjoy!
Safe to say there will be spoilers ahead.
