    Default What if Peter Parker was biting by a radioactive mantis shrimp.

    So what if Peter Parker was biting by radioactive Mantis shrimp instead of a spider. Would he become Marvel's One Punch Man. How powerful would he be?

    Bonus Peter Parker gets biting by a radioactive pistol shrimp in place of a radioactive mantis shrimp.

    Well a mantis shrimp weighs, very approximately, a tenth of a pound, and Parker is 165 pounds. So 1,650 times as powerful as a mantis shrimp's punch. That's a lot, but it wouldn't make him One Punch Man.

    Apparently mantis shrimp punch with 330 pounds of force. So 544,500 pounds of force for Shrimp-Man.

    a mantis shrimp can also form a cavitation bubbles that reach a temperatures 8,500 degrees Fahrenheit or 4977.594 Kelvin . while the Pistol ship can form cavitation bubbles that reach temperature of the surface of the sun. These cavitation bubbles are caused by the speed of the creatures strikes.

    Technically a speedster like the Flash could form cavitation bubbles underwater and used them as a form of attack.

    The thing about Mantis Shrimp is, they punch so hard/fast they create a cavitation bubble underwater. Out of water, they punch hard enough to tear through Neoprene and injure a dude pretty well.

    Also they punch at about 60mph.

    Bullet Shrimp Man is wrecking doods.

    So that would be a dude punching for 272.25 tons according to google.

    I don't know how that falls into real world comparison though

    Let's see we got Peter the Amazing Platypus-man, The Amazing Hibernation Man, and Bullet Shrimp Man.

    I think ultimately it be a power decline. He'd be able to hit way harder, but lose out on the speed, wall crawling, spider sense etc. versatility sacrificed for power.

    Considering that many of Peter's foes consist of folks he already holds back his strength to keep from killing, or people who wouldn't be bothered by the increase in power I don't think that is a very good trade.

    Besides aquatic adventures I guess.

    Eventually, Peter will become a crab, because nature keeps trying to make crabs:

    If you were Mother Nature, given what we’ve done to this planet, wouldn’t you go a bit crabby?

    The crab is the superior form.

    Shell for protection. Claws for attacking. Multiple legs for balance. Small brain for preventing any philosophical quandaries. What more could you need?

    Would someone with the proportionate strenght of spider really be able to lift subway cars? and do all the other crazy things he can do?

    Most likely it's very exaggerated, so yea, if we add that factor in he could be really deadly, not sure it will be one punch man deadly though.

    It's extremely exaggerated. Your average New York City Subway Railcar is about 40 tons. He had an entire station collapse on him at one point and he lifted it off of him.

    Definitely nothing to do with Saitama-level foolishness. Shrimp-Man would hit extremely hard.

    As far as what proportionate strength of a spider really means, well, it's complicated. Spiders aren't designed for carrying subway cars, and they are extremely small. If you made a spider the size and mass of a human, it would break it's legs walking in all likelihood. Same for things like various dung beetles (includes rhinoceros beetles), otherwise the creatures with the highest proportionate lifting strength. Some are capable of lifting and carrying around 1300 times their body mass. If Dung Beetle Man weighed 200 pounds, he'd be capable proportionately of carrying 260000 pounds, or 130 tons. However, the "real life" physics of his legs and other body parts means he'd fail structurally way before he got to that weight. This being in a comic book saves us from dealing with real life problems. So a Spider-Man could lift in the 10 to 50 ton area, sure.

    Shad's video reality of super strength

    Spider-Man isn't just super strong but also has Enhanced Durability. So for Spider-Man to lift about 40 tons his body would also have to be tough enough to support the weight. Otherwise his body would collapse.

    I'd be remiss if I didn't post a sample of the recent story arc from Dandadan which had a Mantis Shrimp themed alien guy.
