Catalog Concept Drawing

"Bitten by a radioactive spider, Peter Parker gained proportionate strength, speed and agility of an arachnid. Armed with his trusty web-shooters, Spider-Man swings through New York City with the grace and prowess of the most skilled gymnast, stopping criminals wherever they strike.

As seen in AMAZING FANTASY #15, August 1962.

After receiving his fantastic spider-powers, Peter decided to use his powers for material gain. The unfortunate youth soon learned from the death of his beloved Uncle Ben -- a death Parker felt he could have prevented-- that with great power such as his, there must also come great responsibility. From that day forward, Parker has used his spectacular powers against the forces of evil as the web-spinning, wall-crawling, ever-amazing Spider-Man!"

Spider-Man was the most popular figure from the first series. Many people believe that the costume is dark blue. In fact, the costume is black to reflect his appearance in Amazing Fantasy #15. As previously mentioned, the 1997 Toy Biz catalog only contained concept drawings. The Spider-Man drawing is shown in a blue costume adding to the confusion.

The costume is removable and it attaches in the rear via a velco strip. Once the costume is removed, Peter Parker's head is revealed (shown left).
