Females of the water spider Argyroneta aquatica build underwater "diving bell" webs that they fill with air and use for digesting prey, molting, mating and raising offspring. They live almost entirely within the bells, darting out to catch prey animals that touch the bell or the threads that anchor it.[42] A few spiders use the surfaces of lakes and ponds as "webs", detecting trapped insects by the vibrations that these cause while struggling.[8]
Raimi was also initially slated to direct a fourth Spider-Man film, with a release date of May 6, 2011. The ill-fated movie was intended to continue with the same cast and crew with plot-lines established in the first three films. Disagreement between Raimi and producers Laura Ziskin and Avi Arad over the script -- and over the choice of villains in particular -- as well as concerns with the rising cost of production (Raimi and series star Tobey Maguire would have claimed a large portion of any film royalties) led to a cancellation of that film's production. Instead, the Sony owned Columbia Pictures decided on a reboot of the franchise.
Ultimate Spider-Man is a superhero comic book series that was published by Marvel Comics from 2000 to 2009. The series is a modernized re-imagining of Marvel's long-running Spider-Man comic book franchise as part of its Ultimate Marvel imprint. Ultimate Spider-Man exists alongside other revamped Marvel characters in Ultimate Marvel titles including Ultimate X-Men, Ultimate Fantastic Four, and The Ultimates.
Some spiders have a cribellum, a modified spinneret with up to 40,000 spigots, each of which produces a single very fine fiber. The fibers are pulled out by the calamistrum, a comb-like set of bristles on the jointed tip of the cribellum, and combined into a composite woolly thread that is very effective in snagging the bristles of insects. The earliest spiders had cribella, which produced the first silk capable of capturing insects, before spiders developed silk coated with sticky droplets. However, most modern groups of spiders have lost the cribellum.[8]
Spider-Man is a fictional superhero in the Marvel Universe debuting in the anthology comic book series issue Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962) in the Silver Age of Comics published by Marvel Comics. After his debut he would get his own comic book entitled The Amazing Spider-Man. The comic book series would introduce many of what would become his major supervillain adversaries. Spider-Man would then be popular enough for more Spider-Man comic spinoffs (The Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel Team-Up, Web of Spider-Man, Peter Parker: Spider-Man etc.) which introduced more recurring enemies of the web-slinger.

To make your own basic Spider-Man costume, start with a basic Spider-Man costume from a shop. Use black puffy paint to paint the web design on the costume and mask, then let it dry for about 2 hours. Next, spray paint window mesh white and glue the mesh to Spider-Man lenses. Attach the mesh and lenses to the mask as well. Sew or glue the shoes from a pair of running shoes to the feet of the costume, and add your own web shooter made from aluminum foil, a straw, and a foldable template printed from the internet.
Un disfraz es una vestimenta u ornamenta diseñada con el propósito de distraer o llamar la atención con fines artísticos, religiosos, promocionales o de otro género; una persona puede disfrazarse para representar un personaje real o ficticio en un evento o circunstancia especial tal como un carnaval,1​ una fiesta de disfraces o una obra teatral. Esta forma de vestimenta es efímera; se utiliza de manera transitoria, en situaciones ajenas a la vida cotidiana2​ en las que se aceptan ciertas transgresiones, como en los carnavales.3​ La función del disfraz también puede ser la de ocultar la identidad o evitar que una persona sea reconocida.4​
El hombre lobo, también conocido como licántropo, es una criatura legendaria presente en muchas culturas independientes a lo largo del mundo. Se ha dicho que este es el más universal de todos los mitos (probablemente junto con el del vampiro), y aún hoy, mucha gente cree en la existencia de los hombres lobo o de otras clases de «hombres bestia». Todas las características típicas de aquel animal – como son la ferocidad, la fuerza, la astucia y la rapidez- son en ellos claramente manifiestas, para desgracia de todos aquellos que se cruzan en su camino. Según las creencias populares, este hombre lobo puede permanecer con su aspecto animal únicamente por espacio de unas cuantas horas, generalmente cuando sale la luna llena.
También en el campo de los antimicrobianos, otro posibilidad son los tejidos que contienen metal. Según Javier R. Sánchez, catedrático de Escuela Universitaria en Ingeniería Textil de la Universidad de Salamanca, “cualquier vestimenta con fibras de base metálica o acabados de tipo metálico es antibacteriana”. Sánchez destaca que esta tecnología tiene especial aplicación en el ámbito sanitario, donde se requieren condiciones asépticas. “Por ejemplo, existen trajes de hospital con un hilo recubierto de plata por cada diez hilos, suficiente para impedir el crecimiento microbiano”.
Spider-Man has the proportionate strength of a spider, thus allowing him to press 10 tons without effort and much more when under stress. His attacks are so strong; they could kill a normal person- Spider-Man has to pull his punches or kicks when not fighting foes with similar or higher strength levels to avoid fatalities. His strength also extends to his feet, allowing him to leap great lengths and attain a heights of much greater three stories with one powerful jump. Spidey's strength has made him capable of going toe-to-toe with opponents including Doctor Octopus, Venom and Rhino. He has even held his own against powerful heroes such as Iron Man and the Hulk. It's also shown that Spider-Man can break free from Doctor Octopus's nearly indestructible arms albeit with much effort, although this was due to the Sinister Six suit enhancing his strength. Spidey's strength and durability also give him incredible stamina allowing him to exert himself beyond the limits of humans as his body produces less fatigue toxins. He was able to fight Morlun continually for many hours, and has stated an ability to hold his breath for at least twice as long as non-enhanced humans. After his encounter with the Queen, Spider-Man's strength had been increased to the point where he has become able to lift over 15 tons without effort and after the Other story arc he was able to lift at least 20 tons without effort. During that time, he wore an Iron Spider costume designed for him by Tony Stark which increased his strength further allowing him to lift over 25 tons without effort. He has stopped wearing the Iron Spider costume after the Civil War and his enhanced strength was erased by Mephisto after the One More Day storyline. Spider-man's best strength feats tend to come during periods of emotional duress- for example in a fight with Iron Man 2020, where when a boy was injured mid fight, an enraged Spider-Man jumped up to his flying height and hit him with such force the foe was sent flying hundreds of feet into a building, which was destroyed on impact. Another instance was when he lifted a segment of the Daily Bugle, after the building was attacked by the Green Goblin. In both cases, he didn't have any enhancements from the Queen or the Other.

In the Avengers Assemble episode "Planet Doom", Slinger's costume almost flawlessly resembles Spider-Man Noir's costume. This version of Spider-Man is a member of the Defenders, a resistance group of vigilantes who are against Doctor Doom, who has altered history and conquered the world. Slinger works alongside Bullseye (Clint Barton) and Snap (Sam Wilson), who are awaiting their foretold savior, the God of Thunder Thor's, arrival. After Doom's defeat, reality is restored to normal, and Slinger reverts to Spider-Man.

Some jumping spiders of the genus Portia hunt other spiders in ways that seem intelligent,[17] outflanking their victims or luring them from their webs. Laboratory studies show that Portia's instinctive tactics are only starting points for a trial-and-error approach from which these spiders learn very quickly how to overcome new prey species.[47] However, they seem to be relatively slow "thinkers", which is not surprising, as their brains are vastly smaller than those of mammalian predators.[17]
He first appeared as a Peter Parker double emerging from one of the Jackal's pods that initially an amnesiac but later believed himself to be the real Peter Parker, having been kept in stasis since the first Clone Saga. He claimed that both Peter Parker and Ben Reilly were his clones. However, upon meeting Parker, Reilly and Kaine, the Jackal's programming kicked in and he went insane before shapeshifting into a freakish giant, therefore revealing his true status as a clone. In denial of the truth, he tried to kill the "clones" and to claim Peter Parker's life as his own. He was even infatuated with Parker's wife Mary Jane Watson and seeks to have her as his bride. Since their first encounter, Reilly realizes that Spidercide is twisted from the start and expresses disgust of his corrupted doppelgänger's immorality, tauntingly refers him as "Freakface" once the villainous clone's shapeshifting powers manifest. However, this also causes Reilly to be afraid of his and Parker's capabilities for wicked if they allow themselves demoralize as Spidercide.
Captain Marvel a.k.a. Carol Danvers: Carol Danvers, the superhero Ms. Marvel, has worked with Spider-Man on occasion and even agreed to go on a date with him in accordance with his helping her on a mission, despite how angry he can make her. She later fulfills her promise.[3] Spider-Man had admitted to himself he finds her attractive in her outfit. At the end of the near disastrous date, the two bonded together over a love of junk food. After she was possessed by the symbiote for a time, Venom hints to Spider-Man that his feelings for Ms. Marvel are mutual. The two have remained good friends.

In this new series Spider-Man is voiced by Drake Bell (who played a spoof of the character in the parody film "Superhero Movie"). At the start of the show, Peter is recruited by Nick Fury to join the SHIELD organization in order to learn how to become a better hero. The series highlights the more technological side of the character, and showcases various gadgets and vehicles such as the Iron Spider suit. He leads a team of teenage heroes consisting of Nova, White Tiger, Power Man and Iron Fist, while other characters like Amadeus Cho, Agent Venom and Ka-Zar appear as the series progressies. Alternate versions of Spider-Man like Miles Morales, Spider-Ham, and Spider-Man 2099 all made their animated debuts in the third season.
In Civil War, Spider-Man is introduced as a young vigilante operating out of Queens. Tony Stark tracks down Peter and recruits him to help stop Captain America's team of fugitive heroes before the situation can escalate any further. During the battle, Spider-Man faces off against the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but is thwarted by Falcon's Redwing drone. He later fights against Captain America, but is outsmarted and defeated by the veteran hero's superior tactical abilities. Spider-Man plays a major role in taking down Giant-Man, allowing Iron Man and War Machine to finish him off. However, Peter is injured in the process, causing Iron Man to send him back home.

¿Conoces al personaje de ficción Michael Myers? De la saga de películas slasher Halloween, es otro de los grandes de la noche de Halloween… Acudimos de nuevo a la Wikipedia para contaros un poco más sobre él: “Aparece por primera vez en Halloween (1978) como un niño de 6 años que asesina a su hermana mayor y, a continuación, quince años más tarde regresa a su casa para asesinar a su hermana menor. En el original Halloween, el adulto Michael Myers, conocido como La Forma en el cierre de créditos, fue interpretado por Nick Castle para la mayoría de la película, con Tony Moran y Tommy Lee Wallace en la sustitución durante la última escena. Fue creado por Debra Hill y John Carpenter. Michael Myers ha aparecido en 9 películas, así como en una novela, un videojuego y varios libros de historietas. En el 2007, el cineasta y músico Rob Zombie retoma la serie fílmica con remakes.”


Europa sufrió durante un largo período de tiempo la plaga bubónica o "peste bubónica" (también conocida como la "muerte negra") la cual aniquiló a casi la mitad de la población. Esto creó un gran temor a la muerte y una enorme preocupación por ésta. Se multiplicaron las misas en la fiesta de los Fieles Difuntos y nacieron muchas representaciones satíricas que le recordaban a la gente su propia mortalidad.

También en este campo el cine futurista nos mostró el camino antes de que lo hiciera el progreso real: “El cine mostró estos trajes antes de que la televisión retransmitiese la llegada del hombre a la Luna”, afirma Yance. “Destination Moon (Irving Pichel, 1950) fue la primera película estadounidense en vestir a los astronautas con la hoy clásica escafandra, aunque los rusos ya lo habían hecho antes en Cosmic Journey (Vasili Zhuravlyov, 1936)”. Es en los atuendos de los astronautas donde encontramos por primera vez los guiños hacia los tejidos del futuro. “Las condiciones tan adversas del espacio obligaron a crear tejidos que protegiesen a los astronautas del impacto de micrometeoritos, por ejemplo”, precisa la experta.
Arachnophobia is a specific phobia—it is the abnormal fear of spiders or anything reminiscent of spiders, such as webs or spider-like shapes. It is one of the most common specific phobias,[107][108] and some statistics show that 50% of women and 10% of men show symptoms.[109] It may be an exaggerated form of an instinctive response that helped early humans to survive,[110] or a cultural phenomenon that is most common in predominantly European societies.[111]
Los antiguos celtas creían que la frontera que separa este mundo del Otro Mundo se estrechaba con el Samhain, permitiendo a los espíritus pasar de un lado a otro con facilidad. Para cuidarse de los seres que pudieran cruzar la línea esa noche, utilizaban trajes y mascaras para adoptar la apariencia de un espíritu maligno y así evitar ser dañados. Esto, unido al consumo de sustancias psicotrópicas a granel, son sin duda el origen de las actuales fiestas de Halloween.
In Forest Hills, Queens, New York,[44] Midtown High School student Peter Benjamin Parker is a science-whiz orphan living with his Uncle Ben and Aunt May. As depicted in Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962), he is bitten by a radioactive spider (erroneously classified as an insect in the panel) at a science exhibit and "acquires the agility and proportionate strength of an arachnid".[45] Along with heightened athletic abilities, Parker gains the ability to adhere to walls and ceilings. Through his native knack for science, he develops a gadget that lets him fire adhesive webbing of his own design through small, wrist-mounted barrels. Initially seeking to capitalize on his new abilities, Parker dons a costume and, as "Spider-Man", becomes a novelty television star. However, "He blithely ignores the chance to stop a fleeing thief, [and] his indifference ironically catches up with him when the same criminal later robs and kills his Uncle Ben." Spider-Man tracks and subdues the killer and learns, in the story's next-to-last caption, "With great power there must also come—great responsibility!"[46]

La palabra «Halloween» [/ˌhæl.əʊˈiːn/] se define tradicionalmente como una forma acortada en lengua escocesa de la expresión inglesa Allhallow-even usada como tal por primera vez en el siglo XVI. Bajo la forma «Hallow-e'en» se encuentra atestiguada desde 1745.6​ All Hallows' Even, o también All Hallows' Eve, era el antiguo nombre en inglés de la «víspera de todos los Santos», esto es, la víspera de la fiesta cristiana del 1 de noviembre.
