In some early versions of 'The Revenge of Shinobi', Spider-Man and Batman made appearances as enemies. Unfortunately, DC Comics and Marvel Comics didn't appreciate the fact that Sega used the comic book heroes without permission. So in order to avoid a lawsuit, Sega removed Batman from the new versions, but kept Spidey under one condition... that condition was that Marvel Entertainment Group would get credit for their 'friendly neighborhood' Spider-Man in the beginning of 'The Revenge of Shinobi'.

Godzilla also makes an appearance in this game
