: Just saw this in an article on Stan Lee:
: In 1962, Lee, seeking inspiration everywhere, spotted a fly on his wall that set him thinking: How about a hero who could crawl on walls?
: "The next thing I needed was a name," Lee says. "Crawl-Man? Nah, that didn't have it. Insect-Man? I ran down the list. Mosquito-Man, Beetle-Man, Fly-Man. Then I hit on Spider-Man. ... That was it!"
: ... just a thought, what if it had been Mosquito-Man? A teen-age orphan with dating problems and the ability to raise a welt the size of a quarter with every kiss.
