He's HIP!!

The blurb on the back from 1966... HERE'S THE TEENAGE SUPER HERO ESQUIRE CALLED ONE OF THE "28 PEOPLE WHO COUNT" ON CAMPUS!

“The most popular Marvel hero... is the maladjusted adolescent Spider-Man, the only overtly neurotic super hero... Spider-Man has a terrible identity problem, a marked inferiority complex, and a fear of women. He is anti-social, racked with Oedipal guilt, and accident prone. Spider-Man began life as Peter Parker, a brilliant science student at Queens High School... Then he got bitten by a radioactive spider and took on the spider's climbing, jumping, and web-shooting powers... Ill luck has pursued him ever since. His shyness led him to adopt a cocky manner which so alienated the other super heroes that none of them will have anything to do with him... Spider-Man is the super-anti-hero of our time.” - The Village Voice.

“If Charlie Brown wore a skin-tight costume and fought crime, he would be Spider-Man” - The Colgate Maroon." (Whatever that is!)
