What would happen if you got bit by a radioactive spider?

Spider-man gets his spider like abilities after being bitten by a radioactive spider. Unfortunately if this would happen to a human, it would have no effect. In order for a spider bite to have a DNA altering effect then it would have to have the power of a nuclear reactor, which would no doubtingly kill the spider.

Just so, can a radioactive spider kill you?

No, the spider would die before it could bite anyone. Depending on the level of radioactivity, the spider may bite someone and cause them to get some level of radiation poisoning, but that would be easily treatable.

Also Know, is Spider Man immune to spider bites? If a spider is bitten by another spider, the venom can affect it. If a spider is bitten by another spider, the venom can affect it. In fact many spiders get killed and eaten by other spiders. Therefore, it doesn't seem like there is anything about Peter Parker/Spider-man that would make him immune to spider venom.

Considering this, is there a radioactive spider?

Spider-Man's first comic-book appearance, August 1962. Radioactive creatures do exist, notably in the forests surrounding the damaged Chernobyl nuclear reactor in the Ukraine, as well as in Sweden and Finland, where plumes of radiation fell after the 1986 disaster.

Are Spider Man's powers possible?

It is possible for a human to become Spider-Man through a radioactive spider bite, but it's lower than a one in a billion chance. A human can replicate many of Spider-Man's abilities. In short, the big idea is that a human can become Spider-Man, just most likely not from a spider bite.

Can Spider Man dodge bullets?

There is no "dumb" projectile that will hit him because he will have finished moving before you shoot the projectile. His spider sense will see every projectile separately, but his reactions are only so fast, and he can only dodge so many ways at a time.
