Spider-Man for the Atari VCS from Parker Brothers (1982)

Released in 1982 by Parker Brothers for the Atari VCS, Spider-Man allowed players to assume the role of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler and attempt to thwart the evil plans of the Green Goblin and his band of hooligans. The game holds the distinction of being the first MCU-based video game.
