Ditko also went on to create Green Goblin, one of the most terrifying supervillians to have plagued Spider-Man. On the artist's death, Patch Zircher tweeted that his creations will be remembered as significantly as Doyle's Sherlock Holmes or Fleming's James Bond.

Ditko also created Squirrel Girl in 1991, a character that soon became a cult favourite.

Both Doctor Strange and Spider-Man have been made into super hit blockbusters. In the 2016 film Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch essayed the role of Dr. Stephen Strange, the metaphysical superhero.
