Yes, There’s A Hyphen
Spider-Man does whatever a spider can. Spins a web, any size. Catches thieves, just like flies. But to be clear, his name is Spider-Man, not Spiderman.

We all know the nerdy Peter Parker got his powers after being bitten by a radioactive Achaearanea Tepidariorum—a common house spider. However, Spider-Man is fictional (dang). Let’s look at the names of some other spiders that are quite real.
