Spider-Man Quits

 Background of Spider-Man Quits
  After Peter Parker is overworked, underappreciated, and fed up with the personal sacrifices he has to make in order to be Spider-Man, he decideds to give up his superhero alterego. Parker dumps his costume in a trashcan in an alley, saying, "I am Spider-Man no more."

In the Spider-Man comics, Peter Parker first quits being Spider-Man in Amazing Spider-Man #50 (July 1976), on page 8. The issue was written by Stan Lee, pencilled by John Romita, and inked by Mickey Dimeo.

The image of Peter Parker dumping his costume in the alley way trash can is one of the most memorable moments in the history of the Spider-Man comics, and the comic book genre as a whole.

In the comic, when Peter Parker quits being Spider-Man, he says:

"I was just a young, unthinking teenager when I first became Spider-Man. But the years have a way of slipping by...of changing the world around us. And every boy...sooner or later...must put away his toys and become a man."
