Everyone knows the Spider-Man story: man gets bitten by spider, gets spider powers, becomes hero. But radioactive metamorphosis is a two-way street. So what about the spider who bit Peter Parker? Whatever became of him?
Nick Kush: We could all probably use a few more laughs these days. Luckily, there’s plenty of them in Man-Spider, a hilarious send-up of the Spider-Man origin story. The clear star here is Harry Michell, who is outrageously funny as a spider turned man, inhabiting many spider quirks from using saran wrap as a web to being afraid of water glasses. All in all, it’s a great example of creativity during the quarantine.
