The following contains spoilers for Marvel's Spider-Man.

Superhero video games throughout history have been, well, not great. However, in recent years, thanks to titles like the excellent Batman: Arkham series, that has begun to change. Now Marvel has finally gotten in on the action with its first unqualified hit of the current generation, Marvel's Spider-Man.

It's so good that it makes you want to see what Insomniac could do with other Marvel properties, and while we'll have to wait and see if this is the first game in an "expanded universe" nevermind a franchise of its own, the game does clearly make reference to the fact that Spider-Man is only part of a larger world of heroes. Here are a few of the best references we've found to some of our other favorite Marvel heroes.


There are actually multiple references to Daredevil within Marvel's Spider-Man, both Josie's Bar, a watering hole frequented by the blind hero, and Fogwell's Gym, where Jack Murdoch trained to be a boxer, can be found in the Hell's Kitchen area of the map. In addition, one of the many backpacks that Spider-Man has left throughout the city that can be retrieved contains the business card of the law firm of Nelson & Murdoch. Matt Murdoch apparently gave the card to Spider-Man in case the wall-crawler ever needed a lawyer. How the blind guy knew he was handing a card to Spider-Man is anybody's guess.
