How can you call that lame? I mean Aunt May is the only thing he has, and maybe this is my family vaules talking (Which I seriously doubt since I can barely stand mine) But I would put the safety of my family before my own interests.
Dude ...superheroes have ememies and if they know your idendity...whats to stop them from popping you when you re kicking back and having a beer at home (or get down with some hot chick)....or threatening you loved ones like what happened in the Steel comics when Jeremy Irons went public
In the Spider-Man movie they felt that a teenage boy wouldn't be able to make a wrist gauntlet that could shoot webs so they made them organically come out of a hole in his wrist, okay that makes sense. But he can sew an extravagant layered costume out of scaled blue and red fabric with see-through lenses? Yea right I don't care how smart he is that costume would require an experts help to make plus a lot of money which we know Peter didn't have. They should have said that the wrestling people made it for him like in the Ultimate Spider-man comics, only problem in the movie he only worked with them for one match so it wouldn't make sense still come on no kid could make that suit. Maybe he could sew it if it ripped but no way he could make a Spider-Man costume that good from scratch.
wo wo wo, your all getting too far out of line, saying a guy can't sew that good?! Impossible?! Are we looking beyond that?! No, where talking about a guy who swings around the city with webs coming out of his hands!! Anything is possible in these circumstances.
This is one of those things in comics where you just kind of have to ignore it. Sort of like, how come nobody recognizes Clark Kent, even though he just takes off his glasses? How come nobody can recognize Peter's voice?
Kinda like that... He can sew perfectly, and that's that...
