Spider man

Spider‑Man is a fictional superhero who appears in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko, he first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15.

The bite from a radioactive spider granted Peter Parker amazing arachnid-like powers. After losing his beloved Uncle Ben to a burglar, grief- stricken Peter vowed to use his incredible abilities to protect his city as the Amazing Spider-Man. Peter’s trials taught him an invaluable lesson: with great power, there must also come great responsibility.

VENOM

Grown from the combined hatred of Eddie Brock and Spider-Man’s old alien costume, the vicious … and viscous … super-brute known as Venom possesses all of Spider-Man’s powers and even greater strength. Undetectable to the web-head’s “Spider-Sense,” Venom has proven to be Spider-Man’s fiercest opponent!

BLACK CAT

Reformed cat burglar Felicia Hardy relies solely on her athletic acumen and fighting skills in the fight against injustice. In her case, the superstition is true: it’s very bad luck to cross paths with Black Cat!

ELECTRO


While working on an overhead power line, disgruntled Max Dillon was struck by lightning from a rolling thunderstorm. The resulting electrical shock imbued Dillon with the power to store and discharge vast amounts of electricity. Trading his blue-collar existence for a colorful costume, Dillon gives the world of crime a jolt as the high-voltage villain Electro!

BLACK WIDOW

Natasha Romanoff is the super-spy known as the Black Widow! Trained extensively in the art of espionage and outfitted with state-of-the-art equipment, Black Widow’s combat skills are virtually unmatched. One of S.H.I.E.L.D’s most valuable agents, she has carried out numerous black-ops missions and has recently been assigned by Director Nick Fury to keep an eye on the Avengers.

HULK

A massive dose of gamma radiation transformed the brilliant but meek scientist Bruce Banner’s DNA, awakening the hidden, adrenaline-fed hero in his genes… HULK! A hero of few words and incredible strength, the Hulk has long been pursued by those who want to use his immense power for their own purposes, or by those who thought the Jade Giant’s anger was too dangerous to be controlled. Now, as a member of the Avengers, Hulk helps smash the unimaginable threats that no Hero could face alone, hoping to at least prove to the world that he is the strongest HERO there is!
