Peter Parker, the character created in the 1960s by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, has made waves in film and TV for decades with Aunt May and Uncle Ben at his side. The comic book series spurred on 10 television shows and six films (and counting), with movie spinoffs on the way.

The newest Spider-Man television series, Marvel’s Spider-Man, is set to premiere later this year on Disney XD. The latest film installment, Spider-Man: Homecoming, is directed by Job Watts and stars Tom Holland alongside Michael Keaton, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans and Zendaya. The film hits theaters July 7.
