11Peter’s Wrestling Roots

Feature Detail

When Peter Parker made his comic book debut in 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, he donned a mask and tested his new superpowers by defeating Joseph “Crusher” Hogan in a wrestling match. In 2002, this moment was replicated in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man, this time with Peter challenging Bone Saw McGraw, played by the Macho Man Randy Savage.

In Far From Home, both of these versions of Peter’s origin get a quick shout-out in the form of a poster advertising a match between Crusher Hogan and Bone Saw McGraw, which can be spotted in the background when Happy Hogan is talking to Peter about Nick Fury during Aunt May’s charity event.
