10. SPIDER-MAN VS. THE FANTASTIC FOUR IN AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 (1963)

In order to get some cheap publicity and make a quick buck, Spider-Man decided to try to join the Fantastic Four in his debut issue. But after he broke into the team’s headquarters and demanded a job, the Web Slinger was soon jumped by the Thing and the rest of the family.

Even though Spidey possesses enhanced strength and the sticky palms of a basement dwelling Star Trek fan, he was no match for Marvel’s greatest super hero team. So the Web Slinger decided to do the honorable thing and run away with his tail between his legs.

But never say that perseverance doesn’t pay off because Spider-Man has finally become a member of the team only a mere 48 years later!
