The Amazing Spider-Man and Captain America in Dr. Doom's Revenge!
Zoom back in time, in your imagination, to the early days of World War II. America needed
a hero to inspire us in the fight against Nazi tyranny - and it got one. His name was Steve
Rogers, but the world knew him as the star-spangled sentinel of liberty, Captain America.
Now, rocket ahead twenty-two years to 1963, when a shy high-school student was bitten by a
radioactive spider. His name was Peter Parker, but he gained world-wide fame as the wall-crawling,
web-swinging, wise-cracking Amazing Spider-Man.

become two of the most exciting and admired superheroes of all.
Comicbooks have evolved rapidly during the last fifty years, from the comicbook itself, to
cartoons, television series, full-length motion pictures, and finally to entertainment software
for the home computer. At the same time, the audience for the comicbook heroes has grown by leaps

even exist. Even in the early '60s, when Spidey exploded upon the scene, computers as we know
them were still in their infancy.
But the times they are a'changin'. Today, in the high-tech world of 1989, the computer has
become an indispensible tool for education, finance, communication, correspondence, and of
course - entertainment. The entertainment software industry is burgeoning as new and more
innovative concepts are created daily, and more and more computers are introduced into the

Paragon Software Corporation
Paragon Software Corporation, based in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, was founded in 1985 by Mark E. Seremet and F. J. Lennon. The company's biggest successes were titles based on licenses from Marvel Comics and Game Designers' Workshop.
Paragon had a long relationship with MicroProse Software, who had distributed their games since at least 1988. MicroProse acquired Paragon outright in July, 1992. As part of MicroProse, the Paragon team developed Challenge of the Five Realms and BloodNet. Soon after, many of the former Paragon principals moved on to co-found or work for Take-Two Interactive, and what was once Paragon ceased to exist.
