Amazing Friends, Episode 15: Along Came Spidey

The story is well-known by now: nerdy teen who lives with his aunt and uncle; radioactive spider bite; a brush with fame and fortune; a horrible family tragedy; great power, and great responsibility.

The Amazing Friends crew takes their turn at telling Spidey’s origin story. BryGuy and I use this week as an opportunity to talk over origins in general and how they serve the characters (and storytellers).

Is the origin of a well-known hero important to you? Which is more vital, the details, or the Truth?
