Tim Berners Lee is ... Spider-Man
If you're looking for someone who can spin a web, who better than the guy who invented it? The creator of the World Wide Web is considered the ultimate tech superhero by many, but like his arachnid-human counterpart, Sir Tim prefers to avoid the limelight. After inventing the Web in 1989, Lee went on to found the World Wide Web Consortium, a standards body still in effect today, and the World Wide Web Foundation, dedicated to extending the Web's reach to the two-thirds of the planet who remain unconnected. You know what they say: With great power comes great responsibility.
