An awesome image of Spider-Man scaling a skyscraper. I love the camera placement in this poster…it really induces a feeling of vertigo. Recently, scientists have come to understand that spiders use something called Van der Waals force, an electrostatic force that attracts all surfaces on a molecular level. Spiders have tiny hairs on their feet, and each hair causes a slight bond to a surface that’s not much on its own. However, the thousands of hairs multiply that force until it can support the spider’s weight. The assumption with Spider-Man has always been that this ability somehow transferred to him with the spider-bite. The movie used this explanation, showing long hairs coming out of his fingertips. The entry in the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe states that Spider-Man is able to “enhance the flux of inter-atomic attractive forces on surfaces he touches, increasing the coefficient of friction between that surface and himself.”

Near mint condition.
