    The animated series from the 90s, the action figures from the same period and the clone saga. Loved Ben Reilly. I want him back (no, not Benpool!).

    The Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends cartoon. I knew the DC heroes through Superfriends and merch. I knew Spider-Man, Hulk and Stan Lee were from another company. It seemed like DC had a hold on mass media and general brand recognition back then, it wasn't until years later that I became more familiar with the 'other' comics company.

    The original Hobgoblin Saga, and the associated mystery of his identity, when I was a kid. It was both well written and visually stunning for the time. An absolute win , well until the whole thing became messy towards its end.....

    Born in 85, I remember seeing spider-man everywhere as a kid, before I knew what marvel comics ever was. Thanksgiving day parade balloon, a production company's credits for muppet babies, I knew he was before I knew who he was if ya know what I mean; he was marvels logo and icon. The early 1990 action figures we're awesome too; suction cup spider-man, spider tracer, etc, too much fun. Also reruns of 60s and amazing friends but those were rarer around 92-93, but then the fox cartoon came out in 1993 or 94 and I was hooked. However, I still didn't buy a lot of spidey comics,only a few here in there, until about 2005 when I started collecting and buying more seriously. . I bought a lot of x-men comics though (my fave franchise)

    I love reading about how people got into spider-man!

    I was born in 1996, and even though comics aren't as popular in my country (Chile) as in others, superheroes are. So, I watched lots of Spider-Man shows; Spider-Man Unlimited, Spider-Man and his amazing friends and, my favorite of the bunch, Spider-Man tas. Also, from time to time I bought comics (well, relatives bought them, I was too little to have any money), in fact, my first comic or one of the first was the crossover Batman/Spider-man, where they face Joker and Carnage. All this, plus the Raimi movies, which I absolutely loved and still do, exceptuating the third one, made me a Spider-Man fan since a very young age

    A mix of the Electric Company, coloring books, Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends, and the Marvel Comics Video Library cassettes.
    My first Spider-Man comic was #274, but I fell in love with the black costume...

    Way back in 3rd grade in 1993 a classmate gave me a copy of adjectiveless Spider-Man issue 24. This is the issue that opens up with Peter and MJ in bed and he's having nightmares. It seemed interesting enough but I was more of an X-Men fan strictly because of the X-Men Animated Series.

    A few months later i see an issue of Spectacular Spider-Man with Spider-Man and the X-men on the cover. That issue was 199. I picked it up and the ending with the Green Goblin kidnapping MJ. That ending hooked me on the Green Goblin. I went on to get issue 200 and then one of my half brother's gave me Web 101 which was the second chapter of Maximum Carnage. I collected the entire MC story and then got the Maximum Carnage game on Genesis for Christmas and was hooked ever since.

    I freaking love the evolution of Harry becoming Green Goblin under Dematteis' writing. I know he had become GG previously, but the way Dematteis depicted him as a villain and friend at the same time was amazing and shows perfectly the dichotomy in which Harry lived

    Another vote for ubiquity.

    I have recollections of my very first time buying Spidey comics at the store: the grocery store near my grandparents' house had Spider-Man Classics at the checkout line.

    I remember buying the shiny gold issue of Web that kicks off the Clone Saga.

    An elementary school friend bought me a reprint of the original clone battle, and I remember being really stoked about that.

    And the cartoon of course. I loved it, although it's pretty much unwatchable now, I think

    No it isn't, that cartoon is still one of the best pieces of Spider-Man media yet.

    Oh, pardon me for feeling differently.

    Except for the final Spiderverse episodes, I can't watch it for any long period of time. But I could watch the X-Men cartoon all day.

    The original Spidey cartoon. But as far as comics go, it was the Stern/JRJR run that hooked me. I remember all the great stories leading up to the Hobgoblin arc and then that really solidified it for me as a kid.

    I continued to read Spider-Man for the most part until OMD and was so incensed at Marvel for doing that, I stopped reading it until I heard how good Slott's run was and decided to come back (to the main Peter book, I was reading Ult Spidey and loving it)

    Bad opinions. But I guess still opinions none the less.
