Since 1962, Spider-Man has been winning the hearts and minds of readers and audiences everywhere, first through comic books, then television and cinema. It was Spider-Man that reshaped mainstream comics and helped pave the way for a wider variety of superhero, and 50 years later, the live-action adaptation of Spidey accomplished the same thing in film.
To celebrate Marvel's wall-crawler, freelance animator and illustrator Junaid Chundrigar created a short tribute featuring 123 different iterations of Spider-Man, including his many costumes as well as the numerous characters that have borne his namesake over the years. Virtually every frame contains a different image, so you're likely to catch just a glimpse of your favorite costume before a different version comes appears.
