"With great power, comes great responsibility."
This quote looks familiar to you? Maybe you know it from the a wise man called Ben. Or uncle Ben. He's the uncle of a boy named Peter Parker, also knwon as Spiderman.
Spiderman ... a boy who shoots cobwebs from his wrists. But he also has superhuman reflexes, stamina and agility. Something like "spider sense" warns him if he is in danger. He also is a very good climber and has the ability to jump very high and far.
Something seems to be familiar to you? Of course!
Shadowhunters also have extremely good reflexes, a great stamina and agility. Former there are strong and sometimes a 'sixth sense' warns them if they are in danger. With some training they can jump farer and higher than normal humans.
It seems like Spiderman and we shadowhunters have a lot in common!
But there are some differences too. For example: Have you ever seen a shadowhunter who shoots a cobweb from his wrists? If yes, please tell me because I never saw that! Maybe it would be helpful if you want to catch a demon. Imagine you can simply shoot a cobweb and the demon is caught. I really want to know if Spiderman’s strange cobwebs are strong enough to tie up a demon. There are stronger than usual cobwebs, so maybe they could.
So, in my very personal opinion Spiderman would be a great shadowhunter. But it seems to be that I'm very alone with this opinion. Can you imagine, that really NOONE of our lovely stafflers, who took part in my little survey, had the opinion that Spiderman would be the best superhero-shadowhunter? But maybe they think a bit different now!
At least Spiderman is the most popular superhero among the participants of the survey. Five of them named Spiderman as their favorite superhero. And of course, you want to know why, am I right? I'm sure I am!
He is really a true hero, placing family and friends on the first place and always fighting bad guys to save the day! Those are the words of Mateo Carrington, our wonderful mentor for magic. Two other mentors completely agree with Mateo’s opinion. Ash Raudell and Jorja Lakedale really like Spiderman a lot! Spiderman, if you read this, maybe you can visit them in our courses about the downworld and runes. But be fast, I heard Ash will leave us soon. So sad news...
Speaking about leaving, our beloved former leader of the SoMe-Team, Barnesul Sandelu, also thinks Spiderman is the best one! At this point let me say, that I'm really sad to see Pee-B without his Pee...but I'm also happy to work with Tziporah now, who chose another superhero as a favorite. So, let's continue with the last lover of Spidy! It's another pee-colored, uhm I wanted to say sunshine-colored, person named Ciara Darkshore! So if you meet her in the archives, you now know a theme to talk about!
Now you've read a lot about your friendly neighborhood Spider. And maybe you're a bit curious now which superhero will be the next one in my little trip through the world of superheroes!
Matt Murdock *coughs* Spider-Man never was able to shoot webs out of his wrists in the comics, he uses mechanical web shooters. The extra power to shoot webs was only in the first 3 movies *coughs* Geek rant over! xD Otherwise, cool article.
