    I was wondering what was the deal with BORTZ and Spiderman memes on this website, can someone explain it to me.
    If this is in the wrong place please move this thread

    Something about threads maybe? Spiders make threads right? Forum threads? :ninja:

    He used spiderman as his avatar, and it evolved from there. Simple.

    Bortz likes 60's spiderman, it's literally as simple as that.
    Bortz has had spiderman for his avatar for a couple of years now and it basically became his trademark.

    Bortz is literally spider man. What kind of convoluted answer were you expecting?

    This site was created by @BORTZ in the '60s while the Spiderman cartoon was still new. The main purpose was distributing GBA roms but there was also originally a dedicated section for people to discuss the cartoon as well

    Yes, the 60s, the decade of the GBA. Of course, after Nintendo's foundation at the dawn of the universe and the Gameboy's extinction in the early cretaceous era, they really needed a go-getter portable console to bring all the swingers and pterodactyls that factually existed at that time into gaming.

    Nothing is surprising since the Nintendo Corporation predates the fall of the Ottoman Empire.
