The intention of this paper is to analyse the implicit and perpetuated motion present in Comic Books and Animation as media, respectively, and to break down the incumbent techniques in the adaptation from a seemingly static medium to one that is articulated. The Marvel Comics’ character Spider-Man will be used as the subject of the analysis due to his deeply ingrained history in comics, making him a readily identifiable character. The motion present in both media will be demonstrated by a close, in-depth analysis of the relationship between issue #1 of "Ultimate Spider-Man" (2009) and Episode 13: “Nature vs. Nurture of the ‘Spectacular Spider-Man’” animated series, with summative conclusions to follow.
