10 Reasons Why I Prefer Organic Web-Shooters
Introduction: I am not making a come back. In fact, I’m pretty much done with this site. I just wanted to post something that’s been on my mind for a while now…
- My personal love for the original Movie Trilogy (2002- 2007), which got that concept from James Cameron’s vision of the film. Plus, I heard somewhere that MCU Spidey’s web-shooters were originally going to be organic as well.
- Seeing how he was bitten by a Spider, it’s only natural that he should have that ability along with the rest of his spider powers.
- More interesting story opportunities if he had organic webbing, instead of always resorting to the artificial web shooters running out of web fluid to make the story progress.
- It just makes more sense than a 15 year old putting together an artificial web-shooter on a very tight budget. Also, it makes him more relatable, instead of being a super genius (which most of us aren’t).
- It’s not as gross as some may think. I mean, Wolverine’s Adamantium bone claws come out of his freaking arm, and no one ever calls them gross. So, if every other hero like Wolverine can have a dozen or so natural powers, so can Spider-Man. While I admit, it ain’t exactly the most fashionable power, but it definitely isn’t the grossest either.
- Parker can have natural webbing, but can still enhance its aim with his web shooters, sort of like Wolverine’s gloves. He can even use it to set to coat his organic webbing in different chemicals like Flame, Ice, Taser, Acid, Sonic, Explosive, and there’s at least one more.
- Pretty much every single other Spider-Person has this power anyway. Why should Spider-Man himself be left out?
- Without the web power, he could’ve just as easily become any other insect-based hero.
- Any powerless person without powers, and with a high IQ could make web-shooters. The organic webbing would make the radioactive spider bite, and his powers more meaningful.
- In the 2002 DVD, Stan Lee said that if he had thought of the spinnerets back when he was first creating him in 1962, he might’ve used that instead.
To wrap this article up, here is a quote on the matter from James Cameron himself… “I had this problem that Peter Parker, boy genius, goes home and creates these wrist shooters that the DARPA labs would be happy to have created on a 20-year program. I said, wait a minute, he’s been bitten by a radioactive spider, it should change him fundamentally in a way that he can’t go back.”
