Whilst Marvel is celebrating it’s 75th anniversary and releasing comics for its 100th anniversary there is actually one anniversary that is taking place right this very moment that us Spider-Fans can get excited about, and that’s because it’s Spider-Man’s birthday. That’s right folks today marks the 52nd anniversary of the Stan Lee and Steve Ditko comic Amazing Fantasy #15, which was Spider-Man’s first ever comic appearance. At least according to ThinkGeek

So there’s one thing left to say.
Happy Birthday Spider-Man!
(There is, of course, some debate as to when Amazing Fantasy #15 was released. I’m going off of the ThinkGeek Today in History Calendar, However there’s a chance Spidey’s birthday was 52 years and four days ago, or even sometime in Mid June… but we won’t talk about that!)
