Spider-man is an all to human superhero that represents the little man on the street. He is what can best be described as an ordinary neighbourhood spider striving for justice and his life depicts the ordinary struggles of men through Peter Parker, who is an orphan, losing his parents at the tender age of 6. He is an ordinary guy with a "Great Power" that is accompanied with "Great Responsibility", as is qouted by his Uncle Ben to him just before he is gunned down by a robber. Peter Parker also faces the difficult choices of a daily life in which he has to make the right decisions, but as Spider-man he can express himself more freely in his pursuit for justice, but the only thing weighing heavily on his shoulders is the death of his uncle which he feels he was responsible for. He is every man, "the man that could be you."
