Raimi was right about giving Peter bio-webbing
No one who could invent web shooters could be poor IRL, it would take a special kind of moron to waste his intellect like that.

    It'd be neat to see a little mini where Pete manages to sell an (altered) version of the webbing to cops, but then that goes breasts' up as people bash on the cops for being trigger happy and the webbing ruining their clothes or something.

      To the NYPD? You might as well have a short where he runs for public office. They'd take about as long and have the same chance of succeeding.

    I'm pretty sure they established that he wanted to sell it, but the formula he showed as an example was the "no-litter" version that dissolves after an hour, and they laughed him out of there because why would anyone use that. not understanding that was on purpose, and it could be formulated to last longer. and after that he never tried again because you only get one shot.

    a bigger issue is why he is still poor when he's friends with stark and richards. They could notice how much his mental state is suffering, how it's hurting his crime fighting, and reward him with, say, 50k a year. they wouldn't even notice that amount of money.

      the word you want is STIPEND which interestingly enough the avengers would often get paid by Stark if they chose to go full time and live in the mansion.

        Didn't Peter and MJ live in the mansion during the 2000s? Or at least frequent it a lot.

        sure, a stipend. that works
        i recall one of the truly excellent spider-man novels, he got a one-time paycheck from Tony and got into shenanigans on his way to cash it, but it was at least going to alleviate the crushing poverty for a while.
        the funny thing about superheroes is, unless they have some kind of super scanning ability, in order to find crime every time they go out for a walk, they have to be living right in the center of fricking bedlam. which means either turbo poor or rich. Though that does beg the question of how they are making a dent in it, if there's still so much crime.

        I think science geniuses are so common in this world that it's sort of plausible he could be a science genius and still be poor, because seemingly anyone can create a miraculous invention with no money.

        I like the organic shooters because I think Peter being a science genius makes it harder for me (a science illiterate) to identify with him, but I know that's a personal reaction because realistically "science genius" in this universe just means "scientist."

        that's an unusually cogent point for a self-described dumdum. Marvel is LOUSY with scientists, it can't be in very high demand. I liked in Spectacular when he got in on a science internship and it was very competitive.
        i miss when comics appealed to science nerds on purpose.

    He can have both. The mechanical shooters are his workhorses and do the standard webbing while his organic shooters are his emergency option and can do more esotric stuff.

    Because Status Quo anon, Pete HAS parlayed his science genius into a career and money and it was all torn away from him eventually.
    And originally Pete didn't sell his formula because the first time he did they said "Who needs a one hour adhesive?" and "we don't even know who the frick you are, how would we pay you?" and he swings away saying FRICK THAT

    I like the organic webbing since he already has wall crawling, spider sense and super strength so shooting webs isn’t too outlandish, I’m also a bigger fan of the every man Peter Parker instead of the Jimmy Neutron genius some books make him out to be

    The obvious solution is that he naturally produces basic webbing from his wrists but has no means of getting it to launch, like spiders irl. So the web shooters are necessary to actually shoot the web, and he experiments on the basic natural webbing to produce more specialized versions. Raimi-style wholly natural everything is just lazy.

    all the money goes into paying the materials for webshooters and why would he sell his webbing? So that enemies would get ahold of it and use it against him? Use your brain for once

    I like the organic webbing because its the only uniquely spiderlike power Peter gets and its more interesting if it came with the bite rather than something he just invents.
