Things We Saw Today: Happy Birthday, Peter Parker!

Peter Parker's passport in Spider-Man: Far From Home, showing his birthday as August 10.

Peter Parker has gone through a lot in his 59 years of being. His first comic appearance came in 1962, and since, we’ve all fallen in love with the boy from Queens and his ability to scale walls and swing from New York City skyscrapers. Thanks to Spider-Man: Far From Home, we know that Peter Parker’s birthday (in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, at least) is on August 10, and so today, we’re celebrating the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!

Twitter shared all the love for Peter today, from tweeting out this picture to their favorite Spider-Man pics, they all wanted to celebrating our webbed hero!

Happy birthday, Peter Parker. I love you with my whole heart.
