    Default Where does Miles get his web fluid from?

    Hi folks,

    Not sure if this has ever been addressed in the actual book but has it ever been shown where Miles continues to get his web fluid from.
    He doesn't have Peter's science smarts, so is Peter keeping him supplied?

    He got the formula from Aunt May when she gave him his web shooters. Now his friend Ganke makes it for him.

    In his Prime Earth history, Miles and Ganke learned the secrets of the sticky sauce from a wise hermit camping out next to a Brooklyn deli.

    CryoFlar3's explanation is how it happened in 1610. In 616, this obviously changed. Now, he got the web shooters and formula from Peter directly. The web shooters were in fact destroyed in Bendis's second-to-last arc. They were gone for the rest of Bendis's run, but he's been seen using webbing since in Champions and his new series, so presumably either Peter or Ironheart (the villain who destroyed the web shooters was actually one of her rogues, Techno Golem) rebuilt them for him.

    Or maybe there's a Web Fairy?

    Would anyone else prefer organic webshooters? It's would be one more thing that makes him different from Peter. A change in setting wouldn't hurt either. Chicago would have been the perfect city but Ironheart got there first. I think Boston would be a great city for Miles.

    Patrolling New Jersey would probably make sense. That's where Kamala and Nadia are based, and thus one of the likely spots for the Champions Mobile Bunker to be parked, handy if a threat is too big to be handled alone and requires the team to be called in. It's also close enough to New York that he wouldn't actually need the bunker to get there and back to his home and school.

    At the end of Bendis's run he did develop his venom blast into a way that can act like a web attack, but that was never used for web swinging travel. Organic webs would make him more different from Peter, but it would also mean he has all of Anya and Silk's powers, as they both have organic webs.

    Not necessarily since from what we've seen of it the thread only stays as long as it's connected to his fingertips making it not all that great at restraining multiple people at once and impossible to restrain someone and leave. So he'd still need something to restrain an opponent for an extended period of time, since I don't think leaving a criminal unconscious of the sidewalk would be very effective.

    He did use his bio electric threads to swing back up to the top of a stolen helicarrier in the last issue of Bendis’ run so I believe he could use them for transportation with enough practice.

    Which cities in New Jersey have enough really tall skyscrapers to make that feasible for travelling by webs?
    Does Newark have an extensive enough area these days, or are the taller buildings more scattered? (Been about a decade or so since I was last down that way.)
