Revenge of the Numbered List

1) Yes, maybe you should patent the web parachute that you made with the world's only pair of web-shooters. You can't really sell them, either, because your webbing dissolves after half an hour or something. And you can't patent a more permanent model, because that would be a normal parachute. So yes, Spider-Man, go ahead and patent your web parachute.

2) You were up in the air for maybe fifteen minutes strip time, if that. It's also a shame that the Vulture got away. It's too bad you don't have any sort of tracer that you could follow him with. A sort of spider tracer... oh wait...

So the Vulture just flew away without watching Spiderman die? I thought he wanted revenge or something.

Yeah, it would have been an excellent opportunity to follow Spidey down to the pavement, mocking him in faux-Shakespearean all the way. But hey, super-villains ALWAYS create elaborate revenge plots and then leave the hero alone to die. It's sacred comics tradition!

And an eco-note: even if Spidey-webbing dissolves in a half hour or so, where is that damn parachute going to land? On top of pedestrians? On the windshield of a bus? Hmm?

Well that took far less time than I expected. Now how many days will it take in our time to find the Vulture again?

Spider-Man never left his old stomping grounds, unless The Vulture was dastardly enough to fly him over to Jersey before shooting the webbing.

If we're lucky, all this cold, windy, high-altitude action will cause Peter's flu to come roaring back. Then we'll get another three weeks of thrilling bed-rest action!
