* HeroesWantRedheads: Sorry, no sign of Gwen Stacy Stacy[[note]]which makes sense, seeing as how [[KilledOffForReal she'd been dead for several years by this point]][[/note]] or Betty Brant around here.

This pinball was the first of Gottlieb's System 80 design; over 7,600 units of this pinball were made, and it became Gottlieb's best-selling game of 1980. Stan Lee owned one of the earliest production models and kept it in his office for over twenty years, until finally auctioning it off as part of his Stan Lee Collection in 2003. Many of the original tables are still operational today, a testament to the System 80 architecture, and it is still sought after by both pinball restoration hobbyists and collectors of comic book memorabilia.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Aside from a fight with Spidey when she first appeared in his comic book, the Black Widow has never been a Spider-Man villain, yet is shown on the backglass with the likes of The Green Goblin and the Vulture.



* RoguesGallery: The backglass features the Green Goblin, the Vulture, Dr. Octopus, and the Black Widow. The playfield has the Lizard, the Kingpin, Kraven the Hunter, and the Scorpion.

* TradeSnark: [[EnforcedTrope Enforced,]] as every single piece of ''Spider-Man'' character art on the backglass and the playfield is accompanied by a small Trademark symbol.

[[CaptainObvious The pinball itself is named after the character]] and long-running ComicBook series, and is the second Creator/MarvelComics character licensed by Gottlieb[[note]]After ''The Incredible Hulk''[[/note]]. The backglass and playfield are festooned with Spider-Man's RoguesGallery and major supporting characters, including the Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, The Kingpin, and Mary Jane Watson. The bottom of the playfield features three flippers (one left, two right), while a fourth flipper sits in the middle-left of the table. While there isn't a goal beyond racking up a high score, the fast-paced gameplay and enticing art makes this a pleasure, though the generic sound effects are a minor disappointment.
