About

Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962, Spider-Man is one of the most popular and successful characters owned by Marvel Comics. Peter Parker, Spidey's alter ego, was revolutionary at the time he was introduced because he was a teenager, as opposed to a grown man. As such, Spider-Man had to learn for himself that "with great power comes great responsibility". Peter Parker earned a living by taking pictures of himself as his superhero persona, and often had to deal with "everyday" issues like balancing his budget, being awkward around girls, and death in the family. His main love interests have included Gwen Stacy, the Black Cat, and Mary Jane Watson. Some of Spider-Man's many abilities include enhanced strength, enhanced speed, wall crawling, regeneration, and web slinging.

Hiro's blog

  • In a blog entry, Hiro muses that someday "a mutated spider will prick me and I can spew webs all over the place" just like Spider-Man.
  • Hiro signs a blog entry with the oft-repeated theme of Spider-Man: "With great power comes great responsibility".
  • Hiro's blog refers to Charlie saying, "Charlie wasn't my Marle, she was my Gwen Stacy." Marle refers to the character from a video game called Chrono Trigger. Gwen Stacy refers to the first true love of Spider-Man; she is killed by the Green Goblin, and is pivotal (and controversial) to the Spider-Man stories. Hiro then signs the blog, "With great powers comes great responsibility," one of Spider-Man's overriding themes.
  • Hiro also worries in his blog that Ando will become his "Uncle Ben", referring to Peter Parker's murdered uncle whose death led Peter to take the responsibility of his powers as Spider-Man seriously.
  • Hiro reiterates in his blog that Charlie was his Gwen Stacy, but he doesn't want Ando to become his Uncle Ben.

Saving Charlie

  • When Charlie expresses her disgust with spiders, Hiro says, "I kind of like them, ever since I saw Spider-Man." (Chapter 16)
