He's Got the Touch... HE'S GOT THE POWER!

Spider-Man's spider-sense's inability to notice that someone was about to hit him in the head with a lead pipe can probably be attributed to the fact that the tranquilizer slowed down his reflexes, and therefore, his spider-sense. As for Jimmy Godero, well, he just knocked out the only guy who is both awake and on his side. Does he not remember that the Persuader just tried to gas him to death in an elaborate scheme? If he lives throughout the week, then... then I will do something, you bet. Chances are that he'll persuade the Persuader to let him live so they can go after Simon Krandis together, though.

As for the lead pipe, I'll simply assume that Jimmy found it lying on the ground somewhere. He's obviously not smart enough to smuggle one onto his person.

This is also the longest I've gone without missing an update in quite a while. So hooray for that.

Lead has an adverse affect on all super-powers. That's why he can't use his x-ray vision to see through lead walls and such.

The way things have been going, Spider-Man should just start wearing a helmet. And did the Persuader just shrug off the webbing he was wrapped in two days ago?

In the strip's defense, the Persuader has proven himself able to tear through Spider-Man's webbing in the past (here) because he has some level of super-strength.

However, it can only be assumed that he'd be able to do the same to webbing that was entangling him.

Another explanation, and this is more likely to be correct, is that no one ever bothers to check the continuity on this strip.

It's a good thing I only vaguely remember what's going on in the strip before I read it each day, otherwise all these ridiculous inconsistencies would probably bother me a lot more.

By the way, congrats for the daily updating streak. It's appreciated!

I like the sound effect of the pipe hitting Spider-man's head.

It makes it sound as if Spider-Man's head is metallic, actually...
