John Romita Jr. says it best when he discusses which character he related to most as a kid:
Superman was perfect, that's the dopiest character in the world, I hated him because of it. But when Spider-Man came around, he was an awkward teenager just like we were awkward kids. We understood them, we had a comradery with him.
