Happy 50th, Spider-Man!

My second-favorite superhero ever of all-time ever hits the big five-oh today.

At least it was 50 years ago this month that Spidey made his debut in Amazing Fantasy #15. I've always dug Spider-Man, even if I didn't actively read his comics as a kid. Instead, I watched his cartoons on TV and had this Mead folder and listened to this book/record set over and over...

I also had one of these...

Sam Raimi's film trilogy of the '00s was pretty awesome (the first two, anyway). I was really looking forward to this summer's reboot, but was pretty much underwhelmed by its cliches and redundancy and general pointlessness. Still, I'll probably watch it again sometime.

Batman is still my favorite superhero.
