The Spider-Man Operation Game That Finally Lets You Butcher Your Hero
Hey kids, have you ever wanted to tear apart Spider-Man and pluck out his insides?
R-really? Holy shit, what's wrong with you?
Well, we guess it's better than "playing" with the neighborhood cats, so uh ... here you go, children.
Spider-Man, Spider-Man, needs a better insurance plan!
The game plays exactly the same as classic Operation, but features our beloved plucky hero on the operating table. All the surgery-related puns are still there, but instead of "water on the knee," Spider-Man needs you to remove his "webbed feet" and "a-rack-nid ribs." And that's to say nothing of the curiously testicle-shaped piece you're invited to remove from his crotch.
Oh, but don't think we're reading too much into a cute little kids game. This game seriously is all about torturing and dismembering Spider-Man. Just look at the box art, which features a beaten and drugged webslinger about to be experimented on by Doctor Octopus.
Whose medical credentials are suspect, at best.
Either the artist has never read a Marvel comic and assumes Doc Ock is an actual medical doctor with his Hippocratic oath intact, or the premise of the game is that you take the role of Spidey's arch-nemesis and your goal is to remove the webslinger's organs one by one. Or maybe we're looking at this wrong. Maybe the whole game is one big honey trap meant to flush out young supervillains in the making.
