Spider Man is one of the most iconic Superheroes where, among other things, he's the first teenage superhero to stand on his own and not be someone's sidekick. However, I've recently discovered that his teenage lifestyle was only in the early days of the character, and that most comics after that portrayed him as an adult out of college, with a job, and married. There's actually some interesting potential to explore a fully grown up Peter Parker. However, it seems like animation is not kind to him, given how almost all of the cartoons focused on a teenage/college aged Spider Man, and the ones that made him older (like the 1999 and 2003 cartoons) were commercial failures. Spider Man as a young hero is very well known, and I have no problems with that, though I do wonder why animation almost always keeps him young and not lot him grow up? Give your thoughts below.
