Oh my dear god — ROFL! Nooooooooo!!!
… and being a biologist, Heather SHOULD have known that spiders produce silk in that area of their anatomy! ROFLMAO!!
…Doesn’t Spider Man have gadgets to shoot webs? I swear I read that somewhere…
We go through so many continuities, I don’t even know which is true anymore. But some do say Spider Man had web fluid from gadgets.
It was webfluid, but then he got turned into a giant spider and gave birth to himself, so now he shoots organic web from his writs like in the movie
“He gave birth to himself.” Such an epic line ^^
Originally, he had wrist-mounted dispensers that he, of course, activated by making the Metal handsign.
He started out with webshooters. Later on, during that whole Marvel Civil War thing, he was fighting Iron Man and his powers evolved and he tied him up with organic webbing. Then a whole bunch of other stuff happened and, I guess, he returned to before that happened… I’m not sure about that “giving birth to himself” thing though. Maybe I should catch up on my comics…
he didn’t give birth to himself.. it’s more a fact that’s rarely known that some spiders can shed its skin once in their lives to heal themselves from grievous injuries. technically..he shed his old self after he’d been beat to a pulp by a villain.
thought he originally filled canisters up because he learned he had limited natural webs, so he filled the canisters and used fresh web as backup… my bad…
Just found this nice webcomic thanks to an ad on SMBC. So I was reading it, is cool and fun, but here something really caught my eye. That painting on the background of the first panel, that’s Simon Bolivar right? I was just wondering where you from. I’m from Venezuela.
The artist is from Argentina I believe, probably some referential background details there.
Doomed to never eat beans or burritos again, small price for the powers gained though.
It doesn’t come from her butt! It comes from a gland in her back. Duh!
Wow, anatomicaly correct spiderman
LOL! That gag was done in Season 4 of ‘The Venture Brothers’, too. Still hilarious. This comic came out with it first, but that Venture episode was already in production. It’s like convergent evolution!
Being a Cranky Gifted, it occured to me as a child of seven that Spidey’s spinnerets were badly misplaced. Related note: Sahira is spot-on about the inadequacy of an arachnid’s respiratory system when scaled-up and installed in a mammal. (How do I know that? Because I read it once, and my capacity for useless trivia is far greater than my ability to remember my own phone number.)
All explanations for this sort of thing are basically euphemisms for “it works because I say that it does.” From simple stuff like magic or adding a cool-sounding prefix like nano-, anti-, or super-, all the way up to pseudoscientific gibberish and inventing new elements. Its also pretty common for authors to just ignore it, and essentially say “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.”
oh, there we go.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but aren’t mammary glands the genetic analog of spinnerets?
No, they evolved completely independently of each other. The two phylums split off from each other long before either mammals or arachnids evolved, so they have nothing to do w/ each other
Oh god i am so happy to have found this web comic!
My first reaction to this issue is, well yes thats going to be interesting!
…That is all.
I am sad because she didn’t say shot web
Learning process: 1
I found this on Tvtropes. You’re the page image for “How Do I Shoot Web” and the latest web comic I’ve come to like.
Eww…. human spoot web poots. *lol* But wait, she’s still wearing clothes, so where in her backside is the webbing coming from? did it rip a hole in her pants or something in order to get that much coming out? *lol*
Oh man! I totally freakin’ lost it at that last panel XD…
