While some people clearly got their pedipalps in a twist over my Spider-Man post, it was all worth it because I discovered Spinnerette.

Heather is a hapless grad student that is also a bit of a klutz… and ends up infused with spider DNA.  The results are far more pleasing to an entomologist than Spider-Man’s neutered and white-washed anatomy.

I’m doing research on SPIDER GENETICS, and you infer that I’m going to CURE FATNESS or turn people into SPIDERMEN! Do you understand anything about science? This is just like the SUPER HADRON COLLIDER, scientists try to investigate subatomic particles … and you dogs on TV report that we’re trying to make a BLACK HOLE to DESTROY THE WORLD!”

  4. Yes, the breasts are a bit….pneumatic.
