After fifty-five years of webslinging, Peter Parker has saved a lot of lives.  More than that, he has influenced a ton of other super-types, from the Spectacular Spider-Kid to Miles Morales to about four future children who inherited his powers.  Spider-Verse added a lot of new wrinkles to the Spider Hero motif, including Speed Buggy-like Peter Parkedcar, the Amazing Spider-Mobile, as well as returning old favorite like Spider-Ham and the MC2 Spider-Girl to the fold, leading to today’s radioactive spider-query…

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
