5 things that don't make sense about Spider-Man

Even if Spider-Man is one of the most beloved superheroes ever, we can't deny there are a few things about him that don't make sense whatsoever.

3. No one questions how Peter gets great pictures of Spider-Man

Unlike other superheroes, Peter Parker goes to extreme lengths to protect his secret identity. After all, Spider-Man's enemies would target the people closest to him if they knew who was under the mask. That's why no one can know Peter is New York's famous web-slinger, and why he would never do anything to risk revealing his secret...

Except maybe taking high-quality pictures of Spider-Man for the Daily Bugle.

Imagine for a moment you were J. Jonah Jameson, and out of nowhere a random teenager brings you many different close-up pictures of Spider-Man swinging through the air, crawling through walls, and fighting bad guys. Surely that would set alarm bells ringing in your head, right? Besides, those images are published for the world to see while also crediting Peter Parker as the photographer, yet no one questions for a moment he could be Spider-Man. I'm pretty sure if that were to happen in the real world, Reddit would've already figured out the wall-crawler's secret identity by now.

There have been many stories where people assume Peter and Spider-Man are actually friends, and that's why the genius teenager takes great photographs of New York's protector. It could be a "Superman" scenario where it's not the glasses that are the ones to cover Clark Kent's identity, but the ridiculousness of the idea of him being a superhero. Maybe, people are quick to discard Peter as a vigilante since he comes across as a nerd with bad luck more than anything. However, we can't help but feel this could very well give away Spider-Man's secret identity, and yet it rarely does.
