(Marvel Super Heroes Adventure Game: Game Book) - Apprentice pet store employee Spike Dexter accepted a delivery of adorable hedgehogs rescued from scientific experimentation. Unaccustomed to dealing with the shy nocturnal creatures, Dexter jostled a sleeping hedgehog and came away with spine marks on his hand. Unfortunately the insectivorous creatures came from the science hall at Midtown High, where one of the hedgehogs had eaten a dying spider that had accidentally absorbed a fantastic amount of radioactivity. Without warning Dexter's body blossomed with spines and fur. Now sleeping during the day, Dexter ventures cautiously into the night to fight evil as - the hapless Hedgehog! 

Comments: Created by Steven "Stan" Brown.

    Hedgehog appeared in TSR's licensed Marvel Super Heroes Adventure Game: Game Book as an example of how players might go about creating a character. The indicia makes it clear that all characters depicted within belong to Marvel, so presumably if someone wanted to bring the Hedgehog into the comics (or movies!), they could.
    I'm not holding my breath.

    Perhaps more than one spider had been thusly irradiated, as the Thousand ate the spider that empowered Spider-Man.
