From the moment he first appeared in the pages of 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 to his modern-day multimedia stardom, Spider-Man – the iconic creation of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko – has always stood out from (and swung above) the crowd. He’s the ultimate relatable hero, one who navigates everyday problems and faces unbelievable obstacles, yet still meets all evildoers with well-timed wisecracks and perfectly-placed bursts of webbing.

And now, sixty years after his introduction, Marvel Entertainment, Semmel Exhibitions, and the Comic-Con Museum have joined forces to present a world-premiere exhibition that brings to life the web-slinger’s entire storied history. Visitors will be able to explore interactive installations and expansive set pieces, learn about the many creators who have contributed to the Spider-Man mythos, and discover a number of priceless artifacts from the past six decades, including original comic art, animation materials, and film production elements celebrating the wall-crawler’s rich legacy while looking ahead to the future, all within a space that combines traditional museum displays with cutting-edge technology.

The "Spider-Man: Beyond Amazing exhibition" opens on Friday, July 1 and runs through Sunday, Jan. 1, 2022 at the Comic-Con Museum.
