Many people wonder who is the better Spider man, Andrew Garfield or Tobey Maguire? There are many factors to consider when determining who is better. Some are: Better Peter Parker or better lover. So let's get to it!

Who's the better Peter Parker?

Tobey Maguire pulled off the nerdy weak role better than Garfield. Andrew's hair was too perfect and the nerdy glasses are trendy. Maguire was weak, insecure, and just overall socially awkward. Garfield was more of a hipster than a nerd.

Winner:Tobey Maguire

Who's the better comedian?

Maguire had some humorous lines, but he wasn't really that funny. Especially in the terrible Spiderman 3. When he did crack a joke it seemed more forced. Garfield was smooth, slick and just felt more composed. He was just a better comedian overall. Spiderman is just a notch below Deadpool in terms of humor.

Winner: Andrew Garfield

Better lover?

Garfield and Emma Stone had a much better connection than Maguire and Kirsten Dunst. Garfield and Stone were flirty and just better altogether. Although Dunst and Maguire did score some major points for that upside-down kiss in the 1st Spiderman. Emma Stone is just a better actress than Kirsten Dunst anyway.

Winner: Andrew Garfield

Better as Spiderman?

Maguire was buff. Garfield was slick and slender which fits a spider better. But Maguire wasn't too buff. He was still slim enough. Plus Garfield being too slim doesn't make him kicking ass as believable.

Winner: Tobey Maguire

Better Enemies?

Tobey Maguire had to face the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Sandman, Harry Osborn, and Venom. Andrew Garfield had to face Lizard and Electro. Maguire had the more recognizable enemies to the average fan. The Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus were Spiderman's 2 toughest enemies. I mean the Green Goblin was responsible for the death of Peter's 1st love, Gwen Stacy. Doctor Octopus actually defeats Spiderman and is now the "Superior Spiderman." Lizard and Electro were definitely tough enemies, but the don't add up to the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Harty Osborn, Sandman, and Venom.

Winner: Tobey Maguire

Overall Winner: Tobey Maguire
