In Oxford, they found out that the superpowers of Spider-Man are not possible in reality

It seems that scientists have taken seriously the real assessment of the capabilities of Hollywood supermen. Spider-Man was next in line after James Bond. The fantastic story of a young man bitten by a spider, who, as a result of a mutation, acquired "spider" superpowers, interested researchers at the University of Oxford.

They analyzed the abilities of the movie hero and compared them with the capabilities of ordinary spiders. One of the first conclusions drawn by biology professor Fritz Wollrath: Peter Parker could not have weaved a web that could support his weight.

For this, in thickness, it must be commensurate with the cable, otherwise the cobweb will not cope with those gigantic loads that we see in the cinema. Especially when Peter Parker stops the rushing subway cars with her help.

According to the professor, in order for an ordinary spider to synthesize such an amount of web, it is necessary to have very large glands and at least a day to weave this web.

No less questionable is the movie hero's ability to shoot a woven web. From the point of view of science, a web shot from the wrists of Spider-Man a few centimeters thick looks absolutely unreal. Spiders are not engaged in "shooting".

In nature, the thickness of a web is measured in microns. In addition, in reality, spiders use it exclusively to fix their victim in limbo.

Summing up, Professor Fritz Wollrath noted that Spider-Man is a product of some kind of mutation and an absolutely unreal character with a web-spinning system that is not found anywhere in nature.
