Seeing as how I’ve done both the top ten for best and worst superhero costume redesigns, I feel obligated to put my money where my artistic mouth is and take a stab at fixing or updating some of these costumes. I’ve picked five here based on:…
too be honest, some of these are so different they seem like new characters. That said, I think I’d read about this line up before actual DC comics.
but an actual flying spider would terrify me to my core!
I know, right? A daddy long legs will scare the shit out of me right up to the moment that I realise that it’s not a spider. Makes no sense…
LIES AND SLANDER. We keep finding them in our halls and everyone shits themselves whenever they see one.
wait isn’t it said daddy long legs are highly venomous but can’t do jack shit because of their itty bitty mouths?
No, that’s a complete myth. The organism they’re talking about is craneflies, which aren’t even spiders. Harvestmen (another species called ‘daddy longlegs’ frequently) aren’t spiders either, but an order of arachnids with a fused cephalothorax and abdomen that aren’t frequently venomous, and those that are aren’t dangerous to humans. The third bearer of the common name is a family of spiders who are venomous, but still don’t pose any significant threat to humans, with mildly irritating bites.
