Plus DC didn’t really have a character that was analogous to Spider-Man. Since then they’ve introduced Blue Beetle, Kyle Rayner, etc who have occupied the “Spider-Man role” of the young average joe who gains incredible power.
Yeah, Spider-Boy was an Amalgam of the guy now called Scarlet Spider, and Superboy. I don't think Dick got amalgamated at all, though Tim was. If they did it now, Nightwing would probably merge with Peter. Dark Claw, the amalgamation of Batman and Wolverine, had a sidekick called Sparrow, who was Tim Drake plus Jubilee.
