    I was just seeing something from a Bioware panel at PAX

    For Dragon Age Inquisition, cosplayers influenced the character design

    But not in the awful Metal Gear Solid V way

    Stuff like "hey let's make sure this character's outfit has pockets on it so cosplayers can still carry their phone"

    It was cool to hear

    oh my god every superhero should carry around web cartridges in case pete ever runs out around them

    like every hero is his mom or dad, carrying snacks around so he doesn't get cranky

    In case? I think you mean, when. Has there ever been a Spiderman story where at one point he didn't run out of web fluid mid swing?

    Pete's webshooters are on a rotating carosel that automatically switch to a new one when the old is empty, and he has a LOT of spares in his belt.

    Which houses his SPIDER SIGNAL.

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    I don't think he ran out mid swing in Spiderverse, but several Peters ran out mid battle, at the same time. Actually 2099 apparently planned on it and had them go in waves.

    It wouldn't make sense for Spider-man to run out mid-swing because his spider-sense would detect it.

    That gets into the weird question of what counts as danger for his spidersense, and I don't want to get into another discussion about how the Dow Jones industrial average should set it off.

    I don't seem to remember Spidock (edit: Spider-Ock? Spodock?) running out of webbing at any point during Superior Spider-Man, but I might be wrong

    Then again, that isn't technically Peter

    Didn't Otto have special lenses that kept track of shit for him? I imagine it'd be easy to whip up some webshooters that keep track of how much webbing he's used and wireless comunicate it to his lenses.

  • nightmarennynightmarenny Registered User regular
    I don't think Slott went to that well much in general.

    I mean obviously when a bunch of Spider-men got together he had to go there.

    It goes toward personal danger.

    He has defused complex alien machinery by starting to touch buttons/pull wires and have it go off until he something that didn't.

    So yeah, having a cartridge that is about to run out of fluid counts.

    What do you think of ol' Clint Barton so far

  • JoolanderJoolander Registered User regular
    But!

    Things that his spider-sense recognizes as "himself" won't set it off. Which includes Venom

    So if he screwed up and didn't pack enough to fluid then it wouldn't go off, but if someone stole his web fluid or sabotaged it, then it would go off

  • DedwrekkaDedwrekka Metal Hell adjacentRegistered User regular
    Now let's contemplate the nature of self, and is Peter Parker a Socratic dualist, a Decartes dualist, or a monist.

    Does that matter when his spider-sense is derrived from an interdimensional web?

    During the brief time when he had organic webbing , he would still run out.

    I spent probably 15 minutes looking at these images thinking man, what does that captain marvel costume remind me of

    every time I looked at it I got this weird deja vu and I couldn't figure out what it was

    Oh no, it goes off if he's going to screw up and hurt himself. It doesn't trigger Venom as a threat because it thinks it is him, and that it won't cause him danger. And since it doesn't know the intent of Venom, it can't know if he'll throw the punch.

    If Venom threw a knife at his head, then that would set it off.

    It also doesn't help that technically Venom is slightly faster than Spider-man.

    Peter did build little LEDs into his webshooters to warn him when he was low on webfluid, so even without the spider-sense he's unlikely to run out of webfluid mid-swing.

    Maybe, but there are levels to his spider-sense and he sometimes chooses to ignore it because he doesn't think he's in danger.

    More than once he meets some dude and his spider-sense is all "WHOA HOLY SHIT WARNING WARNING" and Peter is like "But that's Paul from marketing, he's a swell dude!"

    Three issues later Paul has built a doomsday device and kidnapped Mary Jane.

  • MorkathMorkath Registered User, __BANNED USERS regular
    Oh don't worry, he will still run out mid-swing as soon as the writer needs an easy over used joke to fill a panel.
    Just like someone close to him will get hurt as soon as they need as easy story line.
    I still love spider-man, I just have gotten really tired of some of the common occurrences in his series. Probably why I liked superior and ultimate(miles) so much.

  • Munkus BeaverMunkus Beaver You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to. Philosophy: Stoicism. Politics: Democratic SocialistRegistered User, ClubPA regular
    To be fair, the Ultimate Spider-man had virtually all his issues based around the initial accident and things related to it.

    And in USM he sought out Kingpin.

    To tell him fat jokes.

    I love USM.

    I meant the Miles portion of Ultimate. The peter part was typical with a few highlights like the kingping jokes, and Gwen was interesting.

    If Spider-Man's spider-sense ever became sentient, it's going to hate Peter *so much*. Trying to keep a guy safe and he willfully keeps jumping right into dangerous situations and taunting violent murderers.

    The real reason Venom and Carnage hate Spider-Man so much right here.

    I have been up since 5:30 am reading Hawkeye comics. Like I've said, @Grey Ghost, you are the WORST influence.

    I am thoroughly enjoying them, though. I definitely see why Clint is your favorite, though I'm torn between him and Pizza Dog.

    Miles portion of USM was utterly corrupted by the amount of reboots and tie-ins that were involved. I didn't even get half the issues I should have!

    There were zero reboots and only one relaunch and all of the tie-in's were completely readable on their own and provided all the needed context

    Wasn't the only real tie-in with United We Stand or whatever that mini event with President Cap was?

    Even the Cataclysm mini had nothing really to do with the event and instead was just tying up USM subplots

    I have noticed that a lot of the time when people don't like tie ins the actual content of the tie ins doesn't really seem to matter, they just don't like them being there

    Yeah but even then the Miles run didn't have a ton of them

    Just United We Stand (which was less a tie in and more a USM arc that acknowledged the larger status quo of the Ultimate U at the time) and The Cataclysm mini, I believe.
