Spider-Man (Peter Parker) is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics superhero created by writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. He first appeared in the comic book Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962), with a cover drawn by Jack Kirby and Ditko. He has since become one of the world's most popular characters.

When he was 15 years old, Parker attended a science exhibition where he was bitten by a spider which had been irradiated. The spider bite gave Parker an array of spider-like powers. These powers included the ability to cling to walls and ceilings, super-human strength, and an extra-sensory "Spider Sense". (Wikipedia)

There is also a Japanese version of Spider-Man

This version of the famous web-slinging Marvel Comics superhero, Spider-Man, was part of a deal that Marvel made with Toei, namely that for a four-year period, Toei could use Marvel's characters in any way they saw fit. So in 1978, a Spider-Man tokusatsu series was produced for Japanese television by Toei Company Ltd. While Spider-Man's costume was certainly based on the original, the storyline had little to do with the Marvel character. The series had a major impact on Japanese animation (Anime) by popularising the trend to use mecha (or giant robots) to defeat other giants despite being controlled by a human, a convention begun with shows like Jumborg Ace.
