To celebrate the upcoming release of The Amazing Spider-Man, I thought it was about time that you were reminded of some of the slightly-less-amazing points in Spider-Man's career as New York's web-swinging saviour.

Here are 6 videos of Spider-Man not being very Amazing at all, really:


My Spider-Sense is Tingling…

In the 60s, 'Spider Sense' was essentially 'hindsight'.


"This is a Job for Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spi-" *THUD*

You can't win 'em all, Peter.


Powers… Fading…

Still better than anything in Spider-Man 3.


Spider-Man vs. Racial Stereotypes

"Wooden sticks – my greatest weakness!"


"Hey, How About Turning Off that Horn Pipe?"

Back in '67 Spider-Man didn't need fancy capoeira-style moves to dispel foes – he could do it with just a swift kick up the arse.



So this is what Spider-man does in his downtime.

Sidenote: Chris Hansen is watching you, Iron Man.
