Spider-Man is one of Marvel’s most recognizable characters ever. Created in the 60s, Spidey has managed to remain relevant in the ever-changing landscape of pop culture. Many video games, tv shows, and movies about the character have been released throughout his existence.


Most recently, he had a movie trilogy within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). With a character with such a long and storied career, there are probably endless questions about Spider-Man. To help with that, here are the answers to all of your burning questions.

Who Created Spider-Man?

Brittanica.com states that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko are two men credited with the creation of the character in 1962.

How Many Tom Holland Spider-Man Movies Are There?

There is a total of 3 Tom Holland-led Spider-Man movies: Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home.

How Many Spider-Man Movies Are There?

Although there are 3 Spidey movies in the MCU, there are 8 live-action films in total. The first three are a part of their own universe, the next two are part of a different universe, and the last three are the MCU ones.


There is also the animated feature film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that came out in 2018.

Who Plays Spider-Man?

Since too many people to count have voiced the character, let’s only go over the live-action portrayals. In the first three films, Spider-Man is portrayed by actor Tobey Maguire. The next two films have Andrew Garfield taking up the mantle. Finally, the latest actor to portray Spider-Man is Tom Holland.

Who Was Spider-Man’s First Supervillain?

The first bad guy that Spider-Man came across that wasn’t just a regular schmuck off the street was the Chameleon. This is an interesting tidbit considering that the Chameleon isn’t too prominent in Spider-Man media.

How Strong Is Spider-Man?

Let’s assume that this question is regarding Peter Parker's Spider-Man.


In the comics, Spider-Man has always been portrayed as someone who is deceptively strong. Sure, he will lose a boxing match against the Hulk, but Spider-Man routinely has to pull his punches to not seriously injure his adversaries.


The official Marvel website gives Spidey a 4 out of 7 on the strength scale. For reference, Captain America is a 3, The Thing is a 6, and the Hulk is a 7.


In the MCU, Spider-Man is also shown to be exceptionally strong. In his first appearance, Spider-Man completely catches and halts a punch from the Winter Soldier.


What makes this very impressive is the fact that the Winter Soldier is a Super Soldier; he’s stronger than an average human.


The second thing that makes this impressive was that the punch was from the Winter Soldier’s vibranium arm; vibranium is one of the strongest metals in the MCU.


Apart from that, we see Spidey’s true strength in his film Spider-Man: Homecoming when we see him hold a ship that is breaking in half.

How Old Is Spider-Man?

Throughout the entirety of the MCU trilogy, Spider-Man is in high school. However, in Spider-Man: No Way Home, he’s worried about college applications. Which indicates he’s somewhere around 18 years old.

Conclusion

Spider-Man has been around for over 60 years, and there’s a very good chance he’ll remain popular for the next 60 years. Although the character’s story evolves throughout the years, the web crawler will always have a special place in our hearts.
