Engineered from genetically enhanced spiders, Oscorp's biocable tensile strength is unparalleled. We're just beginning to understand all the potential and in industrial applications. A single pellet can safely store several hundred metres of a light weight cable.
Web-Shooters are Spider-Man's basic weapon. They were created from Peter Parker's incredible intellect in order to further advance his spider-like skills. Peter came across the webbing technology that he was going to use as Spider-Man when he entered the "Biocable Development Unit" in the Oscorp tower, where he was also granted his spider like powers. It is unknown how he managed to purchase this Oscorp product but it is shown in the film that he has a box of 24 of these biocable storage devices and manages to apply them to his needs by putting inside of his personally invented web-shooters. Spider-Man uses these shooters for various purposes, such as deactivating multiple devices, immobilizing opposing enemies and even traveling through New York by swinging from building to building.
The Amazing Spider-man (Comics)Edit
In the original comics the web-shooters are hidden under Spidey's suit and feature an automatic web cartridge refil belt. As the web-shooters are hidden under his suit it appears as if he has organic web-shooters when he doesn't.
The Amazing Spider-ManEdit
The Web-Shooters featured in The Amazing Spider-Man franchise feature a small web cartridge for Spidey to hold and reload his webs. The web-shooter appears circular with a short tube emerging from the front for the web to exit. When activated, the cartridge flashes a small red light to indicate its function. In the climatic fight on the Oscorp roof-top the Lizard destroyed Spider-man's original web-shooters.
The Amazing Spider-Man (video game)Edit
The Amazing Spider-Man 2Edit
In The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the web-shooters have been re-created due to the Lizard destroying Spider-man's original web-shooters on the Oscorp roof-top fight. Their appearance is now in the form of a 3 dimensional hexagonal shape and red in colour to match his suit. The web-shooters are later modified with Gwen Stacy's assistance as the webbing conducts electricity, Peter does this so that he can defend himself from Electro. Peter has also incorporated an MP3 player into his web-shooters so he can listen to music while swinging through the streets of New York.
- Peter got most of the supplies he used to make the Web-Shooters from Oscorp Industries - even the web was based on their design.
- Peter's original intent for the shooters' designs were different from what they look like now.
