Superhero stories are great for plenty of reasons, but one of the best is how they make us forget about real life ever so slightly. Escaping to a world where people can fly and crawl on walls is as exciting as it sounds, especially when you consider those things would never happen on a day-to-day basis. Real-world logic can (and will) be broken whenever a hero enters the scene to make things more exciting, but that doesn't mean absolutely anything should be possible.

See, even the wildest superhero stories need to have limitations. They are always constrained by their own set of rules, no matter how unimportant they might seem. That ensures their narratives are coherent at all times while also allowing a lot of creative freedom along the way. As long as those limits are never crossed, anything is fair game. It should be a simple concept to follow, and yet that's not always the case. Especially for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

Even if Spider-Man is one of the most popular and beloved Marvel characters ever, we can't deny some things about him just don't make sense. And no, we're not talking about the obvious, such as having super strength or a spider sense. We're talking about other details that seem odd even for the rules set in Marvel's Earth-616. So with that in mind, here are five things about our favorite wall-crawler that make us scratch our heads in confusion.
