Re: Spider-Man (Atari 2600 game)

This Spider-Man's real name and relatives were not revealed but well have been the Parkers. Mary Jane was not part of the game; rather Spidey was attempting to defuse bombs set by Green Goblin near the tops of buildings, while capturing crooks and defusing less dangerous bombs lower down the building.
