WOOT! Love the 70's bow-chicka-bow-bow music!
Also, as for Webstor's bio talking about him being a mathematician, I've always took it to be because:
1.) A spider's web can be dissected and mapped out using mathematical patterns.
2.) With all his eyes, he'd be able to perceive space and dimension on a totally different level than a human. Some spiders can see almost nearly all around them at once (except directly behind them).
3.) Since he's a master of traps and escapes, he'd have to be able to quickly calculate distance, movement, angles, and dimension to create and avoid traps.
4.) If in fact he shoots webbing (like the 200X version), he has to be able to calculate the trajectory from one object to the next very quickly, especially if he's swinging from one area to another in rapid succession. Such as moving from one small stalactite to another.
