    Well, if you go by the comics, he doesn't even have organic webshooters, he had to make them. They claimed he got the knowledge of how to make the web from the spider that bit him. n00b.

    Plus he doesn't really grow any new body parts, so he doens't have silk glands.

    he has organic webshooters now. It happened during Avengers: Disassembled, I think.

    Also, a spider's silk thread does not come out of its ass.

    They come from spinnerets near the spider's butt and make the web. There is nothing by it's limbs. This is why mechanical webshooters make more sense.

    and why dont spiders man just jerk off and so he can just be all cumming webs and swing aroun d by his cock yah thats a good idea and go beat up green goblin with a moneyshot and hurrrrrrrrrrrrrrr


    HURRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    You are neither original nor witty for making this joke, as it's been getting bandied about since he first got the organic webshooters in his wrists. So why doesn't Spider-Man shoot webbing out of his ass or, rather a set of spinnerets located on his abdomen? Well there's a lot of logical reasons for it, but I won't bother getting into them. I'll just say that it's because Spider-Man swinging around town by his ass would be fucking retarded and leave it at that.

    He's a combination of Spider and Man, and since Men have greater control of their arms than anything else it makes sense that he'd shoot his webs from there (at least, if his mutation was guided by his subconscious or a mystical spider totem).

    If you want to get into realism, you'd have to ask where the hell all that webbing comes from. I mean, Let's say every line he shoots out when swinging across a city is about 100 feet. Now imagine how much space a 100' rope takes up, and how much it weighs, even a thin one.

    In about a dozen swings he would've had to convert pretty much his entire body mass into webs.




    Also you'd have to ask how a radioactive spider bite gives people superpowers

    And you'd have to wonder how he gets enough energy to do what he does without have to eat constantly and have a specially formulated diet. USRDA doesn't cut it for super-folks.

    This guy is just a troll, and I personally think he's a CaptainApocalypse alt, because CA is doing such an effective job of playing foil/instigator.

    Yeah, not like DC who is totally realistic with there aliens that look exactly like humans, but gain super abilities from being in the sun. Or the magical mind reading rings that create anything you can imagine out of green energy, except a shield against yellow.

    If you're looking for reality, this forum isn't for you. Go jack off while editing wikipedia, you'll enjoy it far more.

    I know that's what I look for in a comic book... complete realism.

    If that were the case, every comic would last one issue and have an incredibly high death rate.

    But then, you're just an idiot forum troll... now that you've been fed, you can go to sleep until the next thought enters your head and the Adderal isn't there to contain it.

    I suppose semi-realistic not the best way to put it but I already used the word inconsistent... so here are some other words that could describe spider-man... eratic, varying, contradictory, paradoxical, unreliable, capricious or ever mercurial.

    I think it would be cool if they had mini-series that strived to be as realistic as possible.

    There was actually a Marvel mini called Ruins, written by Warren Ellis, that had the whole "ultra realistic" thing going on. Black Panther was thrown in jail, Matt Murdock is covered in radioactive waste and um.. dies, Bruce Banner, after being hit with a wave of gamma radiation, does not become the Hulk, but rather a massive blob of green tumors, and so on. It's pretty much a "What If... Everything Fucking Sucked?" kind of story. The wiki is here.

    There was another "realistic" Marvel story called "Powerless" that, from what I recall, showed how Matt Murdock, Peter Parker, and Logan would have developed without powers. Matt Murdock still does battle with Kingpin, only it's in a courtroom. Peter Parker still clashes with Norman Osbourne, and Logan is still a mysterious amnesiac drifter.

    Well Ruins sounds lame. I read some of Powers. Logan has strap on claws. I couldn't get through the second issue though.

    That wasn't even the worst of Ruins. The Kree are kept on a disease ridden reservation, Jean Grey is a whore, most of the other mutants have been jailed by President X who ordered for Quicksilver's limbs to be removed and occasionally visits the caged X-Men (apparently he's quite mad), Rick Jones is a junkie, the Fantastic Four died horrific deaths in space because Ben Grimm thought stealing a space ship was a crazy idea, Thor's a cult leader with a hardware store hammer, Nick Fury's a cannibal, and Silver Surfer tore his own guts out in space.

    I wouldn't call it realistic so much as a hyper-pessimistic reversal of Alex Ross's Marvels. Even Warren Ellis didn't like it that much.
