“This wasn't the Spiderverse I was promised”

Films: Webs (2003)

Alias: Various

Type: Unknown, possibly Mutant

Location: Civilized Area

Height/Weight: Ranges from that of everage humans to a small car.

Affiliation: Evil

Summary: Portal hopping possibilities are boundless. For all we know, there's an alternate dimension where we don't elect sociopaths as president or where the cats are replaced with animalistic hotdogs. Or you know, a nightmare world in which we've all been replaced by spiders. Give or take.

History: At some point, a bunch of electricians stumbled upon an abandoned lab facility. Then they activated the main machine, that being a device that can summon portals to alternate realities. Unfortunately for them, they landed in a future where the device is actually used, but it unleashed a horde of monstrous spider-people that took over the Earth and are turning everyone into their spidery slaves. Getting out of here is easier said than done.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: After just about every resistance fighter is killed in the area, the queen is finally brought down via electrocution and the creation of a new portal that blows the beast up upon expiring. But while this reality may be a slightly better place now, our surviving electricians find themselves in an alternate Earth filled with winged predators.

Powers/Abilities: The queen spider can infect people into slowly mutating into man-spider hybrids that grow more subservient to their queen over time.

Weakness: Anything conventional, though the queen is made of tougher stuff.

Scariness Factor: 3.5-If you read "future ruled by arachnids" and didn't feel a slight surge of primal fear, you are either not an arachnophobe, or you simply don't have a pulse. Especially if we were to factor in "oh, and there are spider zombies too" into the equation. But while they and the queen herself are grotesque, the CGI bogs it down a bit.

Trivia: -This film was directed by David Wu, who judging by his career is more suited to the editing department.

-Multiverse theory is the idea that all of existence is comprised of parallel realities, and yes, this is actually an accepted theory in physical cosmology. Not that we disagree, actually. The idea was first talked about by none other than Erwin Schrodinger in 1952 as a sort of joking lecture.
