I’m watching the first Spiderman film since it’s on TV, and on seeing it again i’m struck by just how poorly Peter Parker keeps his identity secret.
He first discovers his web-shooty powers in the school cafeteria, accidentally whipping a tray into someone’s back. He then exits the room, the tray still on the webbing from his wrist, it being dragged behind him. The room being filled with other people.
Shortly after, he gets into a fight where he performs all sorts of feats of agility, as well as doing a couple of backflips from standing. Right in front of a group of other students, of course.
When he joins the wrestling group, he performs under the name Spiderman, in a similar version of his costume, and reveals his face to the organiser as well as anyone backstage; people quite likely to sell him out for the money.
He rescues Mary Jane at several points. Does he make a show of not knowing her? Nope, it’s all “I’ll save you, MJ!”. It’s not like she could compare the sound of his voice to all the people she knows, or something. :dubious:
How can everyone (in the film universe, anyway) not know who he is?
