Spider-Man Has A New Spider-Sense And It’s Crazy. We’re probably talking about Spider-Man’s most iconic superpower. Who does not remember or recognize the famous spider sense? If you know the character, you have to know about this ability that wakes up the hero and warns him of danger.
However, the spider-man superpowers they are not immovable. Yes, there are certain abilities that have always been with him, but they have evolved throughout his history. Comics are flexible and changing narrative elements, perhaps their plots are the ones that revolve around the same concept the most.
And in most cases the context is very important, like the example at hand. On this occasion, Spider-Man blames himself for the death of a man who had died in a fire and whom he had not been able to save. For that reason, he decides to push himself and develop a super-powered spider-sense.
Peter Parker makes the decision to “improve” that spider-sense of spider-man and give it a much greater, broader utility. In fact, “amplifying” is precisely what it does, as the superhero of the Marvel Universe empowers it to be able to cover a larger territory… But along the way it gets lost and things get out of hand.
This is the new spider-sense of Spider-Man in Marvel!
In issue #8 of the current Spider-Man series, by Dan Slott and Mark Bagley, Peter Parker asks for help from a reformed Norman Osborn to increase his spider-sense. He wants to perceive more people when they are in danger, because the death of that man under the flames of a damaged building torments him until he says “enough”.
All goes well and the experiment seems to work like a charm. But then, as usual in comics, things get complicated. Peter Parker is electrocuted by high current cables, which overload his spider-sense. This makes perceive any and all problems that the citizens of New York feel.
Can you imagine that madness in the brain? Millions of people asking for help simultaneously, feeling fear, suffering from ailments, dealing with suffering; and Spider-Man is part of it all. “I can feel all of them,” exclaims Peter, who in the cartoon is clearly not having a good time.
That’s him Spider-Man’s new spider-sense superpower. She is now able to attend to all requests for help and all feelings of fear from New Yorkers. But the price she has paid for his sense of responsibility is none other than punishing herself psychologically along the way. Terrible.
