The (less than) Amazing Spider-Man. The Best Parts: Hundreds of bad writing and directing choices are canceled out by the pure chemistry between the two leads (encore!); I didn't know they were remaking Teen Wolf; Brighter, more comical than the first trilogy; Andrew Garfield: Best Cryer Ever (devilish smile, too); Well executed Spidey/Lizardo fight sequences (almost like a real video game!); Sometimes... it is "too soon"
August 10, 1962: With nothing to lose, Stan Lee tosses a superhero idea he's worked up with artist Steve Ditko into the final issue of a failing light sci-fi anthology series. And a legend is born. Happy 50th Birthday, Spider-Man.
