Spidey vs. Spiders

The staff at LiveScience.com offers an entertaining look at how the powers of "Your friendly neighborhood Spiderman" compare to those of real arachnids. Answer: the web stuff - well, it really could support a guy swinging through Manhattan. "Spider sense" is, alas, fiction.

Well, I think we can cut Stan Lee a little dramatic license, don't you? Heck, he only created one of the most successful characters in comic book-dom. :)

Not only did he create a fun character, but one of the first superheroes who was still human. I always liked the old strip where he tried in vain to cash a check made out to "Spiderman." Nobody ever told Superman to take a hike.
