Hope this helps

Hey,
spiderman relates to simple gift!!


Both Spider-man and The Simple Gift explore the aspects of growing up and transitions into new phases of life. Spider-man’s Peter Parker is an unpopular and insecure teenager that becomes a superhero and The Simple Gift’s Billy Luckett turns from boy to man. In both cases the protagonist grows and realizes the understanding of making adult choices and mature responsibilities.

hope that helps

hey the song She's Leaving Home By the Beatles is a really good one to relate to the Simple Gift and also Independance Day by Bruce Springsteen
