As I was reading the various threads discussing the reboot, I felt a strange sense of deja vu. Yet, I felt there was something missing that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Then I realized what it was, there was no one putting those pesky man-spider fans in their place! And so (after a bit of archival research), I present the beloved Mr Parker in all his glory: TRUE SPIDEY FAN ---- Now that that's taken care of... While I certainly don't share all of Mr P's sentiments (i.e. anyone liking the Sony Spider-Man films aren't true spidey fans, but man-spider fans), I do agree that mechanized web-shooters are something integral to the Spider-Man mythos. Like Mr P said, they are emblematic in showing how Peter Parker was special, how his intelligence and problem-sovling abilities allowed him to really make use of the power he was given (unlike someone like Flash Thompson). Additionally, the constant need to buy supplies to create web fluid presented him with another challenge in his life, and the fact that his webbing could run out prevented him from using it as a cruch, forcing him to once again rely on his own intelligence and skills to get himself out of a jam. For me, that was always one of the more appealing things about Spider-Man (also why I prefer Batman over Superman, but that's for another forum). So, I say, organics DO suck. The film-makers should do it right this time and use mechanical web-shooters.
