I am wondering if I should capitalize "web slinger", I don't think I should capitalize toy, but also I don't know if both "Spider-Man's web slinger toy" and "Spider-Man web slinger toy" should be capitalized the same way.

  • Why would you capitalize any of those words (aside from Spider and Man)? – user3395 Apr 6 '19 at 11:51
  • I see it capitalized on Amazon. – frbsfok Apr 6 '19 at 11:52

    There's not enough context then. You should tell us whether the quoted is a/the name of a product, or perhaps whether Spider-Man Web Slinger is a movie title, with the toy being simply connected to it, etc. – user3395 Apr 6 '19 at 11:57
  • The choice of words is a bit curious. Web-slinger is an established nickname of Spider-Man himself. The gadgets on his wrists are his web-shooters. – Anton Sherwood Apr 6 '19 at 23:49

As a title of the name of a product, you would use title-case and capitalise all the "major" words.
