Super Rugby Spiderman

Proud and fearless, the Lions are the perfect match for Spidey, one of Marvel’s most charming characters.

This fictional superhero was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko of Marvel, and first appeared in a comic book in the 60s. The story of Peter Parker who becomes the web-shooting masked fighter for justice is a story of rising up while struggling with issues of adolescence, identity, and even finance. Witty and lovable, Spidey surpassed the sidekicks and became a hero on his own.

He was the one to learn that "with great power, there must also come great responsibility" – and that’s something that the South African team identifies with.
