In August, 58 years ago today, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko gave the world one of its best superheroes and changed comics forever. Teenage sidekicks already existed in the world of comics for more than 20 years. Yet, Peter Parker became one of the first teenage superheroes.

The second was a scene from a Godzilla movie where the king of kaiju was presumably killed. A big softie myself, I often tear up at moments in Spider-Man movies many of which are in this list. There is something about Spider-Man that just resonates with people, whether they are babies or grown-ass adults. With almost six decades of Spider-Man stories behind us, from comics to cartoons to films, there is a lot of moments to choose from in our Spider-Man Day celebration.
