If you are like me, or a plethora of other comic book fans, then you believe Spider-Man to be the best of the best. Not because he’s the most powerful or because he’s saved the day more than his fair share of times, but because he is very relatable. He struggles just as much to deal with his day-to-day life as teenaged Peter Parker as he does while trying to be the hero. To see a kid come into these powers and how that affects the way he lives is something that resonates with many people, including Kevin Feige. In the Fan’s Guide to Spider-Man: Homecoming, Feige discusses how he believes the Wall-Crawler is number one.
“Spider-Man is the biggest Marvel character. He is the jewel in the crown. Such an amazing icon. He’s a very different kind of hero because he is, quite simply, the greatest superhero of all-time.”

In the video, Tom Holland talks about how we’ve seen the Avengers each become heroes, but it happens to them much later in life when they’ve already experienced so much and can bring that experience into consideration when dealing with the matters of being a superhero. Peter Parker on the other hand has to try to continue figuring out life during the transition into adulthood with the additional weight of learning how to save the world. This takes a lot of time and effort on his part, and it will be very exiting to see this unfold in Spidey’s new endeavors as part of the MCU.
