Finding out Peter Parker is a superhero is not as big of a deal as it used to

How the Spider-Man comics dealt with the secret-identity issue

Curated via Twitter from CNET News’s twitter account….

Jonah Jameson, the longtime publisher of the Daily Bugle, learns of Spider-Man’s secret identity in the movies, but in the comics, it’s happened more than once.

Later in the issue, Spider-Man returned to his old self and defeated Doc Ock, which convinced Jameson that Parker was playing dress up and was not the superhero menace.

In the second issue of Civil War, he recruits Spider-Man to show the world he’s Peter Parker.

In Amazing Spider-Man #148, which debuted in 1975, the Jackal reveals himself as Parker’s professor, who was mad at Spider-Man for letting Gwen Stacy, a student he cared for, die.

Jameson constantly trying to discover  Spider-Man’s true identity is a mainstay of the comics, but that changed in 2015’s Spectacular Spider-Man #6.

An ongoing concern for Spider-Man in both the comics and movies is keeping his secret identity, well, a secret.

Other reveals of Spider-Man’s identity in the comics had little to no ramifications for the superhero.

His classmate and love interest MJ (Zendaya) makes a wild guess that Parker is Spider-Man, and while he tries to talk his way out of it at first, he confirms her theory.

The result was an event called "One More Day," where Parker gives up the love of his life, Mary Jane Watson, to have the world forget that he is  Spider-Man.

After Aunt May was hit with a bullet meant for Parker and was clinging to life in the hospital, Spider-Man had to made a deal with the devil himself, Mephisto, to save his favorite aunt.

Spider-Man’s secret identity is not much of a secret in the comics.

Simmons) plays a video in which  Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) reveals Peter Parker’s secret identity.

Spider-Man: Far From Home review — A perfect Avengers: Endgame epilogue: Spoiler-free: Swing back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and meet Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio in this joyous globetrotting adventure.

Spider-Man needs some information while Jameson wants to learn more about this superhero he’s been writing about all this time.

Then in issue #151, a photograph of Spider-Man and his unmasked clone makes his way to Jameson’s desk.

Captain America and Tony Stark’s different of opinion had more ramifications for Spider-Man in the comics.

Like the film Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel Comics counterpart also featured the US government passing the Superhero Registration Act, which required heroes to register their identity.

In the comics, there have been more than a dozen times when Peter Parker’s secret is discovered, and frankly, it’s getting a little boring.
