    Hmmm you would think it would be more "scientifically accurate" with scientifically accurate in the title. Funny!

    @Burgh: Lolz! Nice catch! It`s quite subtle, yes?

    fail he`s webs come out of a machine not his body
    @dm2754: In the "Classic Spiderman" yes, but in "modern re-tellings" it`s biological.

    iirc: Stan Lee originally wanted biological webs, but got talked out of it and they came up with "web shooters" insted.
    Something about "teenage boy shooting white goop all over the place" just didn`t sit well with them...

    dm2754:
    I think the word you`re looking for is "his."
    And the movies have done away with the web shooters, so there`s precedent for body-generated webs.

    It depends which spider he has mimicked. His `dick` wouldn`t have to fall off... As far as I am aware, Steatoda grossa (the spider that was `painted` to look cool in the first three Spiderman films does not lose its palps during courtship. Spiders like Pityiohyphantes DO lose them (and quite regularly too).

    The last movie brought the web-shooters back.
