Man With a Plan

It's nice to see Spider-Man actually thinking things through. Getting the Persuader to rat on Krandis is a bit iffy, but I'm sure Spider-Man could "persuade" him to do it. I'm also fairly certain Stan Lee will use that exact same pun before this storyline is done.

TIL: Not so much liked, but in panel three... it looks like Spider-Man is producing some webbing the way real spiders do. Dear god.

As I saw Spider-Man merrily swinging about the city, a thought suddenly occurred to me. And I'm sure I'm not the first, but...

Do Spidey's webs degrade? Do they disappear over time? They're remarkably durable, and made of a synthetic substance. If they had the half-life of, say, the average plastic shopping bag, then every building in NYC would have a whole buncha old webs hanging all over the place. Yuck!

Hey, Spider-Man... clean up after yourself!

Yes, the webbing does degrade. this was established in the comic books decades ago.

But now, in the comic books Spider-man has organic webs. I haven't seen anything mentioned about that.

I discovered this blog a few days ago and it's fantastic to say the least. Keep up the good work Mike!
