  1. With Great Power Comes Sick Moves on the Basketball Field

    Did Parker learn nothing from using his powers to wrestle?

    YouTuber ProfessorLive is crazy good at basketball sports. He also has a Spider-Man costume, so logically he combined the two for an amazing YouTube last month.

On the Republican side, you'll be able to suit up as George W.
