* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The original Stan Lee/Steve Ditko run actually reads quite differently from later versions. The characters, for instance, look quite different. From her more recent depictions, you'd never guess that Gwen Stacy started out as [[http://www.superdickery.com/gwen-stacy-is-like-the-village-bicycle/ this]] kind of character. Likewise, her personality was also a good bit colder. Peter Parker himself was drawn to look fairly plain whereas John Romita Sr. made him quite handsome. The tone of the stories was also quite tense, since Peter Parker's secret identity meant that he had no real time to make friends and people saw him as cold and aloof. After Ditko left, it was greatly softened and Peter even had a regular circle of friends and a more stable social life.

The tone of the stories was also quite tense, since tense. Since Peter Parker's secret identity Parker had no confidant to share his SecretIdentity with (no Alfred, no Robin, no Ma and Pa Kent) which meant that he had no real time a FriendlessBackground for most of the early issues, with only Betty Brant at the Daily Bugle being a partial aversion. When Peter came to make friends college, he had a reputation for being aloof and people saw him as cold and aloof. asocial. After Ditko left, it was greatly softened and Peter even had a regular circle of friends and a more stable social life.life, and more modern and updated adaptations, especially ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' give him confidants and sidekicks to make his life more social.
** From the way the aesop ComesGreatResponsibility is emphasized (with some liken it to Batman's "My parents are dead!"), it is often surprising how underplayed it is in the early stories. For one thing, the aesop was never spoken by Peter out loud nor attributed to Uncle Ben, it comes from the narrative captions at the end of ''Amazing Fantasy #15'' and later writers would {{Retcon}} this into a message Uncle Ben told Peter. For instance, Issue 1 of ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' has Peter trying to work as a kind of performing artist in New York and parlay his superheroics into some form of income, which belies the impression from later adaptation that Uncle Ben's aesop transformed him overnight into a monkish commitment to superheroism. In fact, for most of the run, Peter was constantly trying back and forth to sort out his life, with the basic impression being that Peter was always muddled and divided about how his life would be like.



** What Peter does when he first discovers his powers is what most anyone would do, unless you're a ''really'' altruistic person: make money. It's only after Uncle Ben's death due to neglecting to stop a burglar is when Peter starts to be the selfless hero he is today.

** What Peter does when Peter's goals after he first discovers his powers is what most anyone would do, unless you're finding a ''really'' altruistic person: way to monetize it, which emphasizes the social-material dimension on superheroics in a way the likes of Superman and Batman never did[[note]]The former doesn't need to make money. It's only a living since his parents in Kansas own property and are self-sufficient, and Clark has a job in the Daily Planet, and as Superman doesn't really need to feed himself to survive anyway.

* ArchEnemy: Three villains contest for the role: ComicBook/GreenGoblin, ComicBook/DoctorOctopus, and {{ComicBook/Venom}}. The reason for this is that the Green Goblin died in the 70s and spent a good 20-odd years dead before he came back to torment his foe, which is probably the record for dead A-list villains to beat. In the meantime, Doctor Octopus and Venom filled the roles in the seventies and eighties/nineties, respectively. However, in recent decades Venom became more of an AntiHero figure with his hatred of Peter toned down. At the same time, both Osborn and Octavius really hurt wallcrawler in their own nasty ways, so if there is a contest for a mantle of Spider-Manís greatest enemy, itís between these two. As Stan Lee put it himself: ''"The Green Goblin is Peter Parker's greatest enemy, while Doctor Octopus is Spider-Man's greatest enemy.Ē''
