> I've heard the argument that Stan and Steve aged him quickly because they didn't expect the series to last that long. Who writes something expecting it to get cancelled? Why would he think it would get cancelled if the whole reason they got an Amazing Spider-Man was the popularity of Amazing Fantasy 15?

I don't know, but it's what Stan keeps saying. Marvel was a pretty small company at the time and up against legacy characters from DC. That and well, most comics didn't go on forever at the time.

You make a good point. It might of been more risky back then. He graduated college though in like 181 or something didn't he? I'd say by then they definately knew he was a character that would last. It seems strange they'd want to pull him out of that setting even. I know there's always graduate school but keeping him as an undergrad would've locked him into the 18-22 age. I'm personally glad they didn't but to me that seems like the ideal age they're shooting for. Either teens or early 20s.
