The Amazing Spider-Man

 AMSM   (Marvel, 1963-1998, 2003-2014)

™ and ©1971 Marvel Entertainment Group
Series ends in 1998, restarts in 2003 with issue #500 (numbering continued from sum of the issues in this series, The Amazing Spider-Man (Vol. 2)

After being bitten by a radioactive spider, Peter Parker, a shy high school student, suddenly found himself with the ability to sense danger, stick to walls, and with the proportional strength of a spider. When his uncle was killed by a burglar, Peter resolved to use his new powers to fight crime. Thus was born the Amazing Spider-Man, Marvel’s most popular character of all time.

The Amazing Spider-Man is the flagship of the Spider-Man titles which have included Marvel Team-Up, Spectacular Spider-Man, Spidey Super Stories, Web of Spider-Man, and (just plain old) Spider-Man. Since its first issue in 1963, it has featured the wisecracking arachnid in many of his greatest adventures, and has introduced such famous super-villains as the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, the Kingpin, and Venom.
