The original idea behind the Questprobe series was to have twelve games, each with a corresponding comic book created my Marvel Comics. The first three games and their comics, featuring the Hulk, Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four's Human Torch and Thing, were released but Adventure International went bankrupt before the fourth game, featuring the X-Men, was completed.

Since there is only 1 SPLxx.DAT file used in the game, hard coding the ??'s to 52 works just fine! Add
