How does Spider-Man use his web?

On top of his organic webbing, which allowed him to use vibrations in the strands to sense people, his entire body could now stick to surfaces, and he could even use night vision.

Spider-Man’s web-shooters are twin devices, which he wears on his wrists beneath the gauntlets of his costume, that can shoot thin strands of a special “web fluid” (the chemical composition of which is not known, but which is described–see below–as being a “shear-thinning” substance) at high pressure.

By weaving his webs into discs beneath his feet, he can walk across water or fire. Given enough time, Spider-Man can even create sculptures out of his webbing, which will turn into a sticky mess on anyone who takes a swing at them.

One of Peter’s problems with his web-shooters is getting them past metal detectors. At one point, he had to disassemble them and put the components amongst his camera equipment to get through airport security. As a result, he contemplated making them out of another material.

Thor  is the Norse god of thunder, the sky, and agriculture. He is the son of Odin, chief of the gods, and Odin’s consort Jord (Earth) and husband of the fertility goddess Sif, who is the mother of his son Modi and daughter Thrud; his other son, Magni, may be from a union with the giantess Jarnsaxa.

Thor was the defender of Asgard, realm of the gods, and Midgard, the human realm, and is primarily associated with protection through great feats of arms in slaying giants. The majority of the tales featuring Thor, in fact, put him in conflict with a giant or with his nemesis the Midgard Serpent, a monstrous snake who coils and twists itself around the world. Like almost all of the Norse gods, Thor is doomed to die at Ragnarok, the end of the world and twilight of the gods, but falls only after killing the great serpent with his powerful hammer Mjollnir, dying to its poison; his sons Magni and Modi survive Ragnarok along with a small number of other gods and inherit his hammer which they use to restore order.

He developed from the earlier Germanic god Donar and became the most popular deity of the Norse pantheon. Thor continues as a popular god in the present day, too, and the modern English and German words for the fifth day of the week – Thursday and Donnerstag – both allude to Thor/Donar (“Thor’s Day”/“Donar’s Day”). He was thought to have ruled the sky from his land of “Power-Field” or “Plains of Strength” where he built his great hall of Bilskirnir, a palace of 540 rooms.

Thor’s popularity reached its height during the Viking Age (c. 790-1100) at which time he was considered the greatest rival to Christ when, roughly from the 10th century onwards, Christianity was introduced to Scandinavia. More amulets and charms of Thor’s hammer date from the period when Christianity and the Norse religion were in contention than from any other. Christianity finally prevailed and the cult of Thor was gradually replaced by the new religion by the 12th century.
