Geek Quote: "Some spiders change colors to blend into their environment. It's a defense mechanism."
Geek-Down: Stan Lee designed Spider-Man's alter ego to appeal to high school geeks who dreamed of fighting their bullies. Film geek director Sam Raimi only added to Peter Parker's geek charm. For example, in 'Spider-Man 3,' when Peter gets a taste of the extraterrestrial symbiote that creates Venom, he becomes geeky arrogant instead of cocky cool. Does anyone really believe geeks would only use superpowers for good? They would at least steal a few comic books.
