I have a question about the ol' Spidey Sense and it relates to a Christopher Walken appearance on SNL: view.yahoo.com/show/saturday-night-live/clip/4955807/ed-glosser-trivial-psychic For those of you unfamiliar with the Dead Zone, Christopher Walken played a psychic who picked up on future tragic events (ex: a child dying in a tragic accident). In the SNL bit, Walken end out getting visions from VERY trivial events (ex: You're going to eat your ice cream too fast and get a headache).
Let's see if you're with me on this: Spider-Man's Spider Sense is not that much different. He's alerted to some impending danger that is strangely inconsistent. Sometimes the danger is a big truck that's about to fall on his head. Other times it goes off if someone's watching him as he's about to put on his costume.
I see two potential problems that I want resolved: 1. An Overreactive Sense- We've seen Samaritan, Superman, and The Great Machine struggle with living in a big city and "turning off" their heightened danger perception. Why don't we see that with Spider-Man? 2. An Underreactive Sense- This guy has taken on Thanos and the Beyonder...there's no way this thing is going off when Montana and Fancy Dan roll up on him, right?
