White Lion was a hard rock/heavy metal music band of the 1980s and early 1990s. The band was formed in New York City in 1984 by Denmark-born vocalist Mike Tramp. After moving from Denmark, Mike met guitarist Vito Bratta, forming a band.

Later, the band grew to include drummer Nicki Capozzi and bassist Felix Robinson. The band was signed by a small label called Grand Slam records in January 1985. While recording the song The Road to Valhalla, both Capozzi and Robinson left the band. Nicki Capozzi was replaced by Dan Spitz, and Felix Robinson was replaced by James Lomenzo. Within a month of joining, Dan spitz left and was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo.

The band then finished their debut album, Fight to Survive, which was released on November 9, 1985. A few months later, Grand Slam records went bankrupt.

In 1986, White Lion, with a fictitious "female" member, had a brief part in the Tom Hanks/Shelley Long movie The Money Pit. Early in 1987, the band was signed by Atlantic Records. By then, their debut album was out of print and extremely hard to find.

On June 21, 1987, their second album, Pride, was released (the same day as Keel's Keel album, and Helix's Wild in The Streets) The first single from Pride was 'Wait/Don't Give Up, released on June 1, 1987. However, it took seven months before the song became a hit.

The Pride tour started in July 1987 as White Lion opened for Ace Frehley's 80s band Frehley's Comet. In September 1987, White Lion became the opening band for KISS (who had just started their Crazy Nights tour).

White Lion spent the rest of 1987 on tour with KISS. In January 1988 started opening for AC/DC on their Blow Up Your Video tour.

While opening for AC/DC, the Pride album and Wait single finally charted. Wait hit #8 on the singles chart, while Pride stalled at #11 on the album chart.

In August 1988, the album's second single Tell Me stopped at #58. Around the time this single was released, White Lion played at the Ritz club in New York City. Like Guns N' Roses, White Lion's show at the Ritz was filmed and later aired on MTV.

White Lion concluded the Pride tour by opening for Stryper from September 1988 to February 1989 during Stryper's In God We Trust tour. The Pride album's third single When The Children Cry made it to #3, making Pride one of about 18 hard rock albums to ever have multiple top 10 hits.

In August 1989, White Lion released their third album Big Game. This was followed, in 1991, by Mane Attraction. Unfortunately, by the end of 1991, White Lion had broken up.

As an afterthought, Atlantic Records released the Best of White Lion compilation album in 1992. It must be noted that the song "Radar Love" was included in this album, a cover considered by many, one of the best ever made.

In 1993, bassist James Lomenzo joined former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde in a band called Pride and Glory, while vocalist Mike Tramp started a solo career.

Towards the end of 2003, Mike Tramp said that White Lion was planning to reunite. This statement was quickly denied by the other members.

On June 21, 1987, their second album, Pride, was released (the same day as Keel's Keel album, and Helix's Wild in The Streets) The first single from Pride was 'Wait/Don't Give Up, released on June 1, 1987. Spider-Man 2 will be the first motion picture released in the Sony UMD format for the PlayStation Portable, being included for free with the first one million PSP systems released in the United States. By then, their debut album was out of print and extremely hard to find. Spider-Man 2's three-day weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) total failed to beat its predecessor's $114.8 million record, but its six-day $180.1 million total outpaced The Matrix Reloaded's $146.9 million mark. Early in 1987, the band was signed by Atlantic Records. The first Spider-Man's opening-day record was set on Friday, a more traditional opening day; Shrek 2's record-breaking day was the Saturday after the Wednesday of its release. In 1986, White Lion, with a fictitious "female" member, had a brief part in the Tom Hanks/Shelley Long movie The Money Pit. Spider-Man 2's opening-day gross was even more impressive for occurring on a Wednesday, usually a weak day of the week for movies.

A few months later, Grand Slam records went bankrupt. The only higher single-day movie gross was Shrek 2's $44.8 million in the first weekend of its May 2004 release, and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith's $50 million on the first day of its May 2005 release. The band then finished their debut album, Fight to Survive, which was released on November 9, 1985. Its first-day gross ($40.5 million) surpassed its predecessor's $39.4 million record. Within a month of joining, Dan spitz left and was replaced by former Anthrax drummer Greg D'Angelo. It premiered in more North American movie theaters than any previous movie.

Later, the band grew to include drummer Nicki Capozzi and bassist Felix Robinson. Spider-Man 2 was released on June 30, 2004; Spider-Man 3 will be released on May 4, 2007. After moving from Denmark, Mike met guitarist Vito Bratta, forming a band. box offices, it was the highest-grossing movie of the year, outperforming Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (the first Star Wars movie not to be the biggest box-office hit of the year).

The band was formed in New York City in 1984 by Denmark-born vocalist Mike Tramp. Earning more than $404 million at U.S.
White Lion was a hard rock/heavy metal music band of the 1980s and early 1990s. Though the film adaptation took a number of liberties with the character's history and powers, most notably giving him organic web-shooters rather than mechanical, it was essentially true to the character and was widely embraced by the viewing public. For help, see How to Edit a Page and the Style and How-to Directory. The film featured a number of impressive CGI effects to bring Spider-Man to life.

This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of article quality. On May 3, 2002, the film Spider-Man was released. Spider-Man has been adapted to television numerous times, through a short-lived live-action television series and several animated cartoon series. These include:. In the comics, others have used the Spider-Man identity.

He also has had a number of series that are since canceled or have been given new names:. Many followed, but currently these are his related titles:. After that he was given his own series. Spider-Man first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15.

Among the most famous of his friends and acquaintances are:. Spider-Man also has one of the best-known supporting casts in comics. Among the most infamous supervillains he encounters regularly are:. Spider-Man has one of the best-known rogues galleries (list of enemies) in comics.

In addition, the Human Torch once helped Spider-Man build a car called the Spidermobile which had a paint job and modifications that follow his spider motif. Unfortunately, Spider-Man had never learned to drive and he crashed the car into the Hudson river soon after receiving it. He typically uses it not only for a light source, but as a way of unnerving opponents and to call attention. Finally, the belt contains a strong light called a Spider Signal that creates an image of his mask when activated. The camera also has an automatic shutter mechanism linked to an internal motion detector so it will take a picture whenever Spider-Man moves in front of the camera lens.

It also carries his camera, which has an extended rear metal plate that allows him to use his web to position it without interfering with its functions. Spider-Man keeps his regular field equipment in a specially designed utility belt that contains his web fluid cartridges and his tracers. However, he eventually learned that he could tune the tracer signal frequency to his own spider-sense for more convenient use, but the receiver is still used as a back-up and long-range measure. Spider-Man originally used a small receiver device to follow the tracers.

While he originally threw his tracers at a target in the hopes that at least one hits, he later developed a wrist launcher which ejects tracers above the wrist while the web is fired from below to allow for more precise and reliable applications of the tracers. The outer casing is shaped like a spider and is designed to cling to a target without attracting attention. Spider-Man has also developed small electronic "spider-tracers" which allow him to track objects or individuals. For now (until Marvel decides to change this), Spider-Man is able to produce webbing without the aid of his web-shooters.

The transformation, however, seemed to give Spider-Man organic web glands in his wrists. The end of the situation saw the Queen presumably dead and Spider-Man reverting back to human form. During this encounter, the Queen transformed Spider-Man into a human-sized spider. Lately, Spider-Man and Captain America crossed paths with a villain called the Queen.

In some versions of the character (such as the Spider-Man 2099 comic series and the popular Spider-Man movie series), the character generates webs organically from his own altered spider-like biology, instead of mechanical web shooters. The web-shooters can also be used to expel other liquids, using interchangeable cartridges, but are seldom used to do this. In addition, Parker can modify the fluid formulation to suit particular specialized needs when called for (this explains why the webbing sometimes conducts electricity, but can also be used as an insulator). The substance is formulated to dissolve after one hour which is generally sufficient time for Spider-Man's needs while ensuring the webs he makes do not cause undue litter.

However, the default meshed spray generally allows for sufficient strength while being more versatile in its use and easier to remove when desired. In addition, when Spider-Man desires it, he can fire the web fluid as a straight liquid when he needs to use the substance's maximum adhesive strength. He can also form crude objects with a heavy application. He can change the setting to a wide spray to ensnare criminals, and to form protective shields or nets.

Typical uses of his webs include creating long swing lines which he uses to travel through the cavernous chasms between the Manhattan high-rises. The substance dries almost immediately into a strong material that can support very heavy loads: into the one-ton range. The default setting has the adhesive threaded through a special mesh to take on a spider web like design. The trigger rests high in the palm and requires two taps to activate, so Peter can't accidently fire the shooter if he makes a fist or his hand hits the trigger.

They are wrist mounted devices that fire a fibrous adhesive very similar to material spiders use to construct webs. Spider-Man's web-shooters are one of the character's most distinguishing traits. Although he is usually of limited financial means, Spider-Man has developed personal equipment that plays an important role in his superhero career. He did, however, wear a non-living version of the black costume until the new occupant of the living costume, Venom, frightened Mary Jane so badly that she could no longer stand to see Peter in the non-living black costume.

Spider-Man rejected the symbiote after finding out it was alive. The costume turned out to be a living symbiotic creature, capable of generating its own webbing and improving most of Spider-Man's abilities. He appeared in an almost all-black costume, with a large white spider emblem on the chest and back, and with built-in webshooters on the back of his hands. The most significant alteration to Spider-Man's costume came about in the mid-1980s, after his return from the Secret Wars.

The gloves had web-shooters on the outside, and the web design on the boots and gloves was partially replaced with dark blue. Instead of a large red spider on his back, the web pattern and spider emblem were repeated there. He placed more emphasis on the spider on the chest, making it large enough to cover the entire torso. Several alterations occurred when Ben Reilly replaced Peter Parker in the role.

He is sometimes depicted with "under-arm webbing" connecting his arms to his torso. The mask has large white eyes rimmed with black, that allow him to see but hide his eyes. There is a large red spider outline on his back, and a smaller black spider emblem on his chest. From the waist up the fabric is the red-and-black web pattern, except for his back, sides, and insides of his upper arms, which are dark blue.

From the waist down it is dark blue, except for mid-calf boots with a black web pattern on a red background. The standard costume is a form-fitting fabric covering his entire body. Although the details and proportions have changed somewhat over the years, with a few notable exceptions, Spider-Man's costume has remained fairly consistent. Curt Connors, in Spider-Man 2.

He is described as "brilliant but lazy" by one of his physics professors, Dr. In the recent films, he maintains his superb intellect with a mastery of physics and a degree from Columbia University. In the comics, he is an expert in chemistry and physics, but later pursues a graduate degree in biochemistry from Empire State University. Quite apart from his physical abilities, Peter has always been brilliant with prodigious aptitude in the physical sciences.

Spider-Man can jump the width of a city block, or almost five stories straight up. Because of his strength, he can leap to great heights. However, his strength is not as advanced as that of the Thing or the Hulk who have vast superhuman strength. In addition to his other amazing powers, Spider-Man has superhuman strength, and can lift 10 tons or more if he is under great stress or pressure.

The phrase "My spider-sense is tingling" has since become an oft parodied ironic catch phrase in American pop culture. This gives the supervillains an edge that Spider-Man often has trouble countering. Additionally, the alien symbiotes Venom and Carnage are not recognized by the spider-sense. For instance, the Green Goblin once secretly attacked him with a gas that temporarily suppressed this perceptive ability, allowing the supervillain to shadow him and learn his secret identity.

Although his spider-sense has saved his life innumerable times, Spider-Man has learned the hard way that it can be beaten. Extremely skilled martial artists taking Spider-Man on hand to hand often have better luck wounding him, although he is formidable in close quarters as well. When combined with his superhuman reflexes and agility, this makes him an extremely difficult target who is almost impossible to shoot in combat. Spider-Man also uses the spider-sense as a means to time his evasive maneuvers to the point where he can avoid multiple gunshots or machine gun fire.

The spider-sense not only alerts Spider-Man to threats to his physical safety, but it also warns him to threats to his privacy such as being observed while changing identities. On the other hand, if there is an immediate lethal physical danger to Parker such as a sniper is taking aim and about to fire for a kill shot, the spider-sense's tingling would take on an almost painful intensity to indicate a need to take extreme evasive action without hesitation. For instance, if an enemy passes by Spider-Man with no intention of interacting with him, the spider-sense would give a low signal indicating that he should be alert for a possible danger. While it cannot tell him of the exact nature of the threat, Spider-Man can judge the severity of it by the intensity of the tingling.

A form of clairvoyance or sixth sense, it unconsciously activates and alerts him to any threat to himself, manifesting as a tingling at the back of his skull. Spider-Man's most subtle power is his spider-sense. Few characters in the Marvel Universe can match Spider-Man's agility, with some exceptions such as Nightcrawler of the X-Men. His agility is such that he can perform gymnastic feats no Olympic gymnast could dream of duplicating.

His reflexes are instantaneous, allowing him to dodge single bullets provided they are fired at a reasonable distance from a low caliber gun that is not automatic. Spider-Man's agility and reflexes are far beyond a range attainable by human beings. However, the superhero has had trouble keeping his grip on heavily lubricated surfaces. In the live-action movies, Peter is shown to have barbed hairs or bristles, similar to those of real spiders, that extend or retract through his skin.

Another idea is that this ability is similar to static electricity. It has been theorized that his body can consciously attract the basic molecules of a solid object when pressed against it. For instance, if he wanted to catch a ball, all he would really need is one fingertip to make contact. He can also grip any solid object with any part of his body as long as it can accommodate the mass of the object.

Spider-Man also gained the ability to adhere to any smooth surface, allowing to him to support more than his own weight while on a vertical surface or upside down. In addition, his vision also lost its myopia. His recovery time from injury is less than that of an ordinary human, but it is far inferior to that of the X-Man, Wolverine. His bodily tissues are substantially more durable and resistant to impact or trauma than an ordinary human, making it difficult to injure him (although he is not bullet proof).

He has superhuman physical strength, agility, and reflexes. The irradiated spider's bite caused a variety of physiological mutations in Peter Parker's body that mirror the characteristics of a spider. Thanks to Spider-Man's membership in the latest incarnation of the Marvel Universe superhero team the Avengers, he, Mary Jane and Aunt May were able to move into Tony Stark's Avengers Tower. Recently, an altercation with former classmate turned superhuman Charlie Weiderman led to the arson of both his apartment and his aunt May's house.

Currently, Parker works again as a photographer for the Daily Bugle. Later, the stresses of Parker's dual identity, combined with Mary Jane's tempestuous career, the apparent loss of their daughter, May, and capricious editorial mandates led to a separation, but they later reconciled. After a lengthy on-again off-again relationship with semi-criminal Black Cat, Parker eventually wed long-time friend, Mary Jane Watson, an occasional fashion model and actress. He enrolled in the fictional Empire State University where he befriended Harry Osborn, who was in fact the son of his arch-enemy the Green Goblin, and Gwen Stacy, with whom he would have a lengthy romance before she was killed by the original Green Goblin.

He continued working as a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle and living with his elderly and somewhat fragile Aunt May until he graduated from high school. However, as with many characters spanning a lengthy publishing history and handled by multiple creators, Spider-Man's history is somewhat convoluted. As originally conceived by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Peter Parker was something of an everyman character. Ironically, Parker works as a freelance photographer for Jameson, selling photographs of himself as Spider-Man.

Jonah Jameson, publisher of the daily newspaper the Daily Bugle. He is often considered little more than a lawbreaker himself, thanks largely to a smear campaign by J. Spider-Man consistently tries to do the right thing, but is viewed with suspicion by many authority figures. Realizing that stopping the thug when he had been given the chance would have prevented his uncle's murder, Spider-Man devoted himself to fighting injustice, driven by the realization that "with great power there must also come great responsibility".

One night, after a show, Spider-Man refused to help stop a thief that ran past him in the hallway, insisting that he was only going to look out for "number one." But his beloved Uncle Ben was later killed by the same thug he had allowed to escape. Debuting as a wrestler, Spider-Man quickly hired an agent and began making lucrative television appearances. Upon the discovery of his powers, Parker designed a costume and adopted the identity of Spider-Man in order to win money as an entertainer. In current Spider-Man continuity, he produces his webs from spinnerets in his wrists and no longer requires the mechanical web shooters.

In addition to his physical powers, Spider-Man used mechanical web shooters of his own design to spin webs in a variety of ways. A lesser effect was the improvement of his eyesight. Originally near-sighted and bespectacled, he now has perfect vision. The spider bite gave Parker an array of spider-like powers. When he was 16 years old, Parker attended a science exhibit where he was bitten by a spider which had been irradiated.

He was often the target of jokes by more popular fellow students like Flash Thompson, the high-school's star athlete. The exceptionally bright Peter showed more interest in his studies, especially science, than in any kind of social life. Over time he grew to be a lonely, timid teenager. After his parents' death the infant Peter Parker was left in the care of his Uncle Ben and Aunt May (Richard's older brother Benjamin Parker and his wife May Reilly-Parker), who were both in the Forest Hills neighborhood of Queens, New York City. Though Peter was always loved by the aging couple, he was unpopular among those of his own age.

Albert found out about their plans and arranged a plane-crash that resulted in their deaths. Their last assignment was the infiltration as double-agents of the organization of Albert Malik, who had taken on the name of Red Skull in the absence of the original. (a fictional secret agency). Peter Benjamin Parker was born to Richard Parker and his wife Mary Fitzpatrick-Parker, both of whom were agents of the CIA and later of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Goodman called for a regular series for the character to capitalize on this success. The story was released in issue #15, and months later, the sales figures indicated that the cover story was unexpectedly popular. When Martin Goodman was presented with the concept, he was resistant to the unorthodox ideas of a teenage hero with troubled personal life, but allowed the character to be used as a cover story for a dying anthology title, Amazing Fantasy, since content mattered little for a title slated to be cancelled. Kirby stated in an interview in Will Eisner's Spirit Magazine that Lee had minimal involvement in the creation of the character.

They say that Lee got the original Simon sketches from Kirby and presented them to Ditko, who recognized Simon's work and used it as the basis for Spider-Man (Comic Book Artist/Alter Ego, Winter, 1999). Another version comes from Joe Simon and Steve Ditko, who say that the creation of Spider-Man was based on Simon's Silver Spider (http://www.simoncomics.com/jsmag.htm). Lee turned to artist Steve Ditko, who found the concept particularly appealing and developed a visual motif that Lee found satisfactory. Originally, Lee assigned Jack Kirby to illustrate the story, but after seeing his designs, decided that Jack's style was "too 'larger than life'" for what he wanted.

In the Spider-Man movie DVD extras, 90's cartoon soapbox and Stan Lee's Mutants, Monsters and Marvels, Lee said he was inspired by seeing a fly climb up a wall. One of the influences for the character came from the pulp magazine, The Spider, and perhaps from an earlier minor spider-themed character, the Tarantula from DC Comics. In the 1980s, Stan Lee said that the idea for the series sprang out of the apparent increased teenage interest in the new Marvel comics characters, so he decided to create a character that could cater to them specifically. Various accounts of the character's creation have been given.

The character has grown from shy high school kid to troubled college student to married man, but the core of the character remains the same. Meanwhile, Marvel has published several comic book series featuring the character (most notably Amazing Spider-Man). Through the years, he has appeared in a handful of animated series, a weekly comic strip and, recently, two very successful films. Spider-Man is tremendously popular and is perhaps the most recognizable superhero alongside Superman and Batman.

The character expanded the dramatic potential of the fantasy subgenre by proving that a series with a strong focus on a more human character and his personal struggles was a viable basis for a successful series. Despite these complications, Spider-Man continues to fight crime and help those in need because he believes that "with great power there must come great responsibility", a sentiment that serves as the theme of the Spider-Man story. Spider-Man is the quintessential Marvel character--his gift of superpowers does not solve his emotional and personal problems; if anything, his powers seriously complicate his career and personal relationships. He has since become one of the world's most popular superheroes.

Spider-Man, the alter ego of Peter Benjamin Parker, is a Marvel Comics superhero created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko who first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962. The punk band The Distillers have also recorded their own unique version for the Spider-Man 2 console game.

In May 2003, he was paid approximately $18,000 to climb the 312-foot, Lloyd's of London, to promote the premiere of the movie Spider-Man on the British television channel, Sky Movies. He sometimes wears a Spider-Man suit during his climbs.

Alain Robert nicknamed Spiderman, rock and urban climber who has scaled more than 70 tall buildings using his hands and feet, without using additional devices. "Spider Dan" Goodwin, who in 1981, climbed the glass of the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center in Chicago using suction cups. Spider-Man was voiced by Neil Patrick Harris. In 2003, another television series adaptation, Spider-Man: The New Animated Series this time using computer animation was produced by Mainframe Entertainment and broadcast on MTV; it featured characters and continuity from the 2002 Spider-Man film, as well as the character Kingpin as depicted in the Daredevil movie.

[4] (http://www.spiderfan.org/shows/tv_unlimited/index.html). Here Spidey was voiced by Rino Romano. In 1999, an animated series named Spider-Man Unlimited was developed for Fox (intended to be an Expanded Universe final season of the 1994 show) in which Spider-Man is transported to an animated Counter-Earth. As a result each of the individual 65 episodes (starting with season 2) were called "chapters." [3] (http://www.spiderfan.org/shows/tv_90s/index.html).

This series had a bigger budget and used a novel system of one large story arc per season developed by John Semper. In 1994, Spider-Man: The Animated Series was made for the Fox Network, (to accompany their X-Men series) with Christopher Daniel Barnes providing the webslinger's voice. This series also featured a number of Marvel guest stars, and shared many of its character designs with the solo Spider-Man show produced just before it. Actor Dan Gilvezan gave voice to this incarnation of the wall-crawler.

Towards this end the cartoon series Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends was created for NBC featuring Spider-Man, Iceman of the X-Men, and a new character, Firestar. The strategy worked, and NBC became interested in having their own Spider-Man cartoon. To garner the attention of the major networks, Marvel first created a new syndicated Spider-Man cartoon that was partially based on the old 60s show. In 1980, with the creation of the animation studio Marvel Productions Ltd., Marvel endeavored to translate more of their comic characters to television.

It also had little-to-nothing to do with the Manga Spider-Man from around the same time. In 1978, a Spider-Man tokusatsu series was produced for Japanese television by Toei Doga (now Toei Animation), but apart from Spider-Man's costume it was not based on the original source. It also suffered from a sporadic broadcast schedule. The CBS Television Network cancelled it, along with Wonder Woman, to avoid being called "the superhero network.". Although the series earned good ratings, fans complained about its low-budget production values and its writing, which neither followed the comics' spirit nor provided adventures that were distinctively appropriate for the character.
