 The Amazing Spider-Man - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Amazing Spider-Man is considered to be the “lead” Spider-Man title, as it was the first (and for many years, the only) regular Spider-Man comic, and it has been in print since 1963.
With a civilian life as a married man, and a re-vamped and re-energised artistic look, the Spider-Man of the 90s was a different superhero than the Spider-Man of the previous three decades.
Bagley hit his stride on Amazing Spider-Man, which he penciled from 1991 to 199, and is considered to be the definitive Spider-Man artist of the 1990s, due in no small part to his rendition of Spider-Man being used extensively for most Spider-Man licensed merchandise of the 1990s onwards.

 Opinions 36 - Hitting the Wall III: Amazing Man (Aug 2000)
Amazing Man owed his names - both of them, both the superheroic and that of his normal identity - to a Golden Age concept created by Bill Everett, the talent who worked on Sub-Mariner pieces in the forties and again in the sixties.
Amazing Man has descended from the role of heavy-hitting hero to damsel in distress.

 Don Markstein's Toonopedia: Amazing-Man
When the first Superman imitator, Wonder Man, hit the stands only 11 months after the Man of Tomorrow himself, DC Comics sued it out of existence as blatant plagiarism — which, of course, it …
But a few months later, as the floodgates opened and superheroes became the dominant genre of comic books, the trend followers were less precise and therefore less actionable.
When Amazing-Man came out, four months after Wonder Man, DC had to endure him, because there was no legal way to shut him down.

Michael Straczynski is a man who has made his mark in many ways whether in the world of science fiction and television with the hit Babylon 5 or in the comic book industry with such books as Rising Stars and Midnight Nation.
So the basic idea is that the author created a amazing story which, to me, helped inforce the "amazing" of the amazing spider-man.
Here is the deal: J. Michael Straczynski took over as the writer of Volume 2 of "The Amazing Spider-Man" with issue #30 and has been effectively "re-inventing" the character (but in a decidedly different way than what you find being done by Brian Michael Bendis in "The Ultimate Spider-Man," which is more a "re-imaginging").

 Amazing Spider-Man #16
Amazing Spider-Man #16 is most important for the teaming-up of two heroes that will go on to join forces many times over in the future, Spider-Man and Daredevil.
Daredevil at this point, is still a very new character and still in his yellow and fl duds and the villain they fight is the Ringmaster, a character that was introduced back in the Golden Age of comics and re-introduced in Incredible Hulk #3.
The story begins as Aunt May is still trying to convince Peter to date her friend's niece and she is given a name this time: Mary Jane.

Michael Straczynski's writing also amazed me. He came in and breathed new life into Spider-Man. The stories seemed fresh and new in a series that had grown stagnant in the nineties.
They then had to apply that model to a current issues of either "The Amazing Spider-Man" or "Peter Parker: Spider-Man." What has remained the same and what has changed over the course of almost forty years and 486 issues is rather interesting.
The current version of "The Amazing Spider-Man" can be considered as postmodern not simply because it is Volume 2, but because it is decidedly self-referential.

 Don Markstein's Toonopedia: The Amazing Spider-Man
Amazing Adult Fantasy ("adult" denoting maturity of taste, not necessarily of legal status), which showcased the unconventional art of Steve Ditko (as directed by writer/editor Stan Lee), was the birthplace of Spider-Man. The adjective which, to this day, is titularly associated with the hero is a reference to that place of origin.
Re-titled Amazing Fantasy in a last-ditch effort to expand readership by not appearing restrictive, it ended with #15 (August, 1962) — the very same issue that contained Spidey's debut.
Along with several other Marvel characters, including Captain America and Iron Man, Spider-Man became an animated cartoon character in 1966.

It gives us a villain who isn't always villainous -- a man who follows a certain code of honor, as twisted as it may seem to others, and who manages by the end to show compassion in victory.
