How Spiderman Got His Name
Spiderman Mulholland is a former rappel specialist of the United States Marine Corps, 1979. Spiderman was a certified law enforcement officer, officer of the Provost Marshal, and was a Marine Corps scout sniper instructor with training in counter guerrilla operations and terrorist tactics, along with Special Ops/STA teams. He completed a four-month mountain warfare school in Korea, and specialized training in advanced rappelling, helicopter extractions, and sky rigging in Japan, California, and Pisgah National Forest, NC.
Shortly after leaving the United States Marine Corps in 1983, Spiderman started his own business doing maintenance, window cleaning, and caulking on high-rise, "suicidal" buildings. The news media nicknamed him "Spiderman" for his unusual and versatile means of scaling impossible structures with ropes, suction cups, PR-3 pulley rappel systems, specialized wall braces, and several of his own designed wall walking systems. His popularity with his customers and the news media seldom referred to his real name, and in 1987, Scott Mulholland changed his corporation's name to Spiderman's Professional Services, Inc., and eventually bought the service mark for the construction industry for "Spiderman." Today his real name on his driver's license reflects the name he was given by his clients and the industry he serves.
Today, nearly 31 years later, he has come a long way from his first building, which was a 43-story building in Seattle that he cleaned the windows on without a rope. His wife Tina says, "I only call him Spiderman in public. He's my man and he has made a good living for us by just kind of hanging in there!" Now you know how Spiderman got his name.
