Tom Holland would arguably be without a job if not for Steve Ditko.

The American comic book illustrator was the co-creator of Spider-Man and was responsible for thinking up Spidey’s suit, as well as his wall-climbing abilities.

The artist passed away this week in his New York home at the age of 90.

Spider-Man: Homecoming actor, Tom Holland, has now paid tribute to the late nonagenarian.

“We all want to leave our mark on the world — this guy crushed it. He made so many people so happy and changed lives — most of all, mine! Thank you Steve — your life lives on man, thank you,” wrote the 22-year-old.

Tribute was also paid to Ditko by Marvel:

The illustrator’s cause of death has been attributed to a heart attack.

He never married during his lifetime and did not have any children.
