About

Spider-Man Pointing at Spider-Man refers to an image from the 60's Spider-Man cartoon episode in which two people in Spider-Man costumes are pointing at each other.

Origin

The image comes from episode 19b of the 1967 Spider-Man cartoon, "Double Identity."[1] In the episode, a villain attempts to impersonate the titular hero.



The earliest known use of the two characters dressed as Spider-Man pointing at each other was an image macro posted February 5th, 2011 on Sharenator[2] in a compilation of 60's Spider-Man images (shown below).



Spread

In the coming years, the image would be used with various other texts on image macros. For example, on June 26, 2012, Funnyjunk[3] user generalshawn posted a version where the text read "SAMEFAG" in a thread (shown below, left). In early 2013, 9GAG user stormrdr[4] posted a version to the site where the text read "HA! Look at that asshole!" (shown below, right).


SAMEFAG HA! LOOK AT THAT A------!

The image wouldn't begin seeing widespread popularity until the mid-2010s, when people would make jokes describing situations in which two people who are very similar meet. It started growing popular on Black Twitter, particularly related to hip-hop. On May 6th, 2016, Reddit user Dualestl[5] used the image to describe a meeting between similar-style rappers Future and Desiigner, gaining over 1,300 points.

The format began growing into a popular format on Twitter in early 2017. On March 10th, @FreddyAmazin[6] published the photo with the caption "When your boo start talking like you," gaining over 3,400 retweets and 8,900 likes (shown below, left). On May 17th, a joke was uploaded to /r/funny,[7] where it gained over 440 points (shown below, right). The post was also upped to /r/MemeEconomy[8] on July 9th, where it gained over 4,900 points.
