Stan Lee on how he created Spider-Man – BBC News I was sitting thinking of trying to think of an idea and I saw a fly crawling on a wall and I thought Jeep. Wouldn’T it be something if, if we had a hero who could crawl on walls like a flight, so I said yeah, that’s great, then I need a name. So I thought fly man that didn’t sound, dramatic enough insect man. No and I went down a list and then I got the Spider-Man and somehow Spider-Man it sounded a little scary. It sounded impressive Spider-Man. I wanted him to beat Spider-Man to be a teenager, but I make him a different kind. You wouldn’t be a sidekick, he would be the hero and again to make him empathetic with the with the readers I figured. I would let him be not that good-looking, not that successful with girls. He doesn’t have a lot of money. He bet he doesn’t have enough money he’s an orphaned who lives with his aunt and uncle. I thought that would make him relatable to a lot of kids.
