Spiderman Day

The superhero Spider-Man has his own holiday – Spider-Man Day, loved by many comic fans. This day is celebrated by both adults and children – everyone who is not indifferent to this character. Spider-Man Day even went beyond English-speaking countries and is known in some circles around the world.

History

Spider-Man first appeared in 1962. He quickly gained immense popularity as many readers could associate themselves with the quiet and unassuming Peter Parker. When the first film adaptation of the Spider-Man story was released in 2002, his popularity increased even more. To this day, this character remains one of the most famous Marvel superheroes.

Despite Spider-Man’s rich and long history, this holiday has been celebrated for only the last few years. Most likely it was the initiative of fans.

Interesting Facts

  • Spider-Man is the first teenage superhero who was completely independent (not a sidekick to another superhero).
  • An iconic quote from the Spider-Man comics is “with great power comes great responsibility.” However, this is actually an old proverb that already appeared in the 18th century.
  • In 2010, a rock musical dedicated to Spider-Man appeared on Broadway. It was received negatively by most fans, as they found the musical’s format unsuitable for the character.

How to Take Part

The easiest way to celebrate Spider-Man Day is to spend it with comics or movies about your favorite hero. Gamers conduct streams with games about Spider-Man. Some fans have themed parties, dressing up as Spider-Man and setting up a table with themed meals (such as spider cakes), etc. Sometimes people do parkour, imitating Spider-Man’s acrobatic stunts. In this case, observe safety rules and maintain a sense of proportion, otherwise injuries are inevitable.
