Like many in my age group, this first Marvel superhero I saw in live action was Spider-Man on The Electric Company. While I thought it was cool to see him outside of the comics, there was something a little creepy about how they made him mute on the show. Sure, it was so us kids could have the educational value of reading his thought bubbles, but I still found it off-putting. It really illustrated the importance of Spidey's wisecracking persona, which did much to offset the appearance of a full face-masked character.
