Hey! Before I start, I just want to say that this is my first post and I want to thank you for reading this, it means a lot to me. I hope in the future I can write loads more articles regarding superheroes and anything else you please. Thank you.

Spider-Man. He's my favourite superhero. But I often ask myself why, I mean I hate those little eight legged freaks. They creep me out so much! But Spider-Man isn't just a human spider. Oh no, he's so much more than that.

Back in 2002 or 2003 I (vaguely!) remember going grocery shopping with my mum. At the time I was probably 2 or 3. I remember being at the till, looking behind me and seeing a VCR box of some dude on a wall. I picked it up and looked at the back. I guess I must've persuaded my mum to buy it.

Now that's basically where my love for Spidey started. Ever since then he's been my idol.

Now let's skip to 2015. Spider-Man continues to be my idol, but why? But I guess the answer is so simple : he's relatable. This guy's been through everything! School, college, breakups, fighting baddies! He's a teenager just like me, so we've probably been through a few mutual things together. But that's not it. He's got to balance his school life, leisure activities, looking after Aunt May, but on top of all that looking after New York City!

Another superhero I love is Batman. I mean he's a freakin' billionaire who beats up criminals at night! What's not to love?! But Batman lives such a privileged life that most of us can only dream of living. Because of this reason, he's just not as relatable as Spidey. I agree, Batman is one of the greatest superheroes, but compare him to Spidey and the Ol' Webhead wins by a mile. Spidey is relatable, funny, charismatic and he's simply all round amazing! Batman is really cool, and he does have a catchy theme tune, but no, Spidey is the greatest.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is Spidey is the greatest. He's relatable, charismatic and funny. He's had some of the greatest comics in comic history. He continues to be an icon in pop culture. But also, there's a lot of depth to this character, and for these reasons I think Spider-Man is the greatest superhero of all time.

I just want to say thank you again for reading this post. I hope to make more articles in the future! Just comment below what you would like me to write next and I will do my best. Thank you again!
