Solicit Synopsis

In 1962, in AMAZING FANTASY #15, 15-year-old Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider and became the Amazing Spider-Man! Fifty-seven years have passed in the real world since that event — so what would have happened if the same amount of time passed for Peter as well?

A special high-end limited series that’s a part of the celebration of Marvel’s 80th anniversary, SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY combines the talents of Chip Zdarsky (SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, MARVEL 2-IN-ONE) and Mark Bagley (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN) to tell the entire history of Spider-Man from beginning to end, set against the key events of the decades through which he lived!

In this first oversized issue, when Flash Thompson is drafted to serve during the Vietnam War, Spidey must weigh the question of where his responsibility truly lies!

Notes

  • This chapter takes place in 1966, while the epilogue takes place in 1967.
  • The film The Good, the Bad and the Ugly was released in theaters in Italy in 1966, but wasn't released in the US until December 29, 1967.
  • Chip Zdarsky says that Life Story takes place on Earth-2447.[1]
  • The credits page indicates that in 1962, Peter Parker was bitten by the spider when he was 15 years old. This might mean his birth year is 1947, which makes him 19 in this story.
  • On Earth-616, Flash Thompson didn't voluntarily enlist on his own; he was drafted.[2] Additionally, this drafting happened some time after Earth-616 Peter's confrontation with Norman Osborn.[3]. The implication seems to be that Iron Man's direct participation in the Vietnam War spurred Flash to enlist before he was drafted.
