Set to make her next appearance in Spider-Man: Far From Home, Aunt May is one of Spider-Man's most iconic supporting characters. First appearing in 1962's Amazing Fantasy #15, she was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. However, there's a lot you might not know about Aunt May. But don't worry: We've got you covered with a new video going over her various appearance in media.
In the comics, Aunt May has actually been a superhero herself. In a What If scenario, Peter Parker forgot his lunch, resulting in Aunt May bringing it to him. This resulted in her getting bitten by a radioactive spider instead, resulting in Spider Ma'am. However, the silly pun has grown into something of its own in the alternate realities, with her taking on the Vulture. This isn't the only time she's become a superhero. She also became the Golden Oldie, a Herald of Galactus, after getting a dose of the power cosmic from Franklin Richards.

We're also talking about a lot of Aunt May's various love interests, who haven't always been big fans of Peter Parker's alter-ego. At one point, she actually dated one of his perpetual enemies: Doctor Otto Octavius, which was pretty awkward for Peter. Although it turned out he had ulterior motives and their relationship collapsed, Aunt May definitely does some questionable things, and he's not the only one of Peter's enemies she's dated.
