Spiderman is a really cool cat. He was a chemist before he was bitten by the radioactive spider, from whence he derived his spidey strength. He did the web slinging based purely on technology: he invented the stuff himself. Furthermore, he had all the 20 something angst of a normal guy: couldnt find the right woman, kept picking the losers, etc. {8^D In retrospect, he might be as cool as Batman. spike
