Marvel's TL;DR Features When Spider-Man Met The Vulture

Last week's TL;DR (Too Long; Didn't Read) focused on the origin of Spider-Man. I referred to it as the "little known origin", and some people missed that I was being sarcastic. This week Marvel's TL;DR is sticking with the Wall-Crawler as Spider-Man: Homecoming will soon be in theaters. Their focus this week is the Amazing Spider-Man #2 from 1963. Where we all know that the thief who killed Uncle Ben was the catalyst for him becoming Spider-Man, but the first issue of the series was all about him trying to make money still or defending himself from incrimination by the Chameleon.TL;DR

It was the Vulture that became the first real super villain he fought and introduced the concept of Peter Parker taking photos of Spider-Man and his villains and selling them to J. Jonah Jameson. This was the issue that turned Spider-Man into a super hero and a photographer and gave him a villain that was on his level to fight. Yes, it was an old guy with wings, but he counts as a villain and look how cool Michael Keaton is making him look.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is in theaters July 7th.
