In addition to his good costume design, I think he strikes the best balance between being normal and being super. Thanks to that he's just much more relatable than the others.
Like, on one end of the super hero spectrum, you have basically hyper-competent, yet otherwise normal people, like Batman. The other end has people like Superman who are retardedly OP and are essentially mary sues. Peter falls nicely in the middle.
>>78902583 if you look at the other shit from his era that made it JUST as big with way shittier designs, i'd say no however his design is pretty tits. So unique for its day. Costumes wouldn't become that regularly interesting for over a decade, and not a fraction as iconic until the 90s
>>78903371 I've always liked how his powers are superhuman, but still relatable. he's strong, but not LUDICROUSLY strong (At least back in the day he wasn't). wall-climbing and agility are only gamebreakers because he uses them so creatively. and he also has his own totally unique technology (gadgets are more fun than powers in certain ways) which he uses even MORE creatively. and yet they ALSO have limits so they don't allow him to be OP. It's the perfect balance ... at least once you filter out the silver age silliness where his spider-sense was straight up psychic
He's a nerdy virgin loser who gets amazing powers which he uses to beat up people who used to be stronger than him while running circles around them verbally with his with and intelligence. When not being an untouchable super strong genius, he spends his time banging super models who are lining up to fuck him because he's a nice, nerdy guy.
I can't think of a single reason why he wouldn't be so popular with his target demographic.
>>78902583 >average guy persona >lovable loser even >gets the hot girl >most memorable cast of villain >main villains are deeply connected to him >has that one special gal whose history has developed with his It's like watching a son grow up and doing things and being proud of him. School teacher Peter was best Peter. Then Marvel had to fuck it up.
I was obsessed with Spider-man as a kid without knowing about any the stories (nor in comics, nor cartoons, and it was before the movies), I had no idea how he was supposed to be when not in costume. I played wih the toys and video games like crazy. And there is that japanese tokusatsu series where he has a giant robot and his real identity is like the opposite to Peter Parker. So I assume there is something instantly appealing about the design on its own.
