Metapost: An Interview with Spider-Man

The Summer of Superheroes may have officially ended a couple of days ago but Spider-Man is just now getting in on the action. Maybe he was busy prepping for his big Broadway debut. Sarcastic line about great power and great responsibility goes here.

Time Out New York named Spidey to their New York 40 list and posted a funny interview with the web slinger. I have a special place in my fantastical daydreaming heart for a hero who makes sly quips, is played wonderfully by Tobey Maguire and who doesn't mind breaking the 4th wall across any media platform.

The tip from Popwatch highlights the best question/answer:
What’s the future of New York? What are your hopes, and what needs to happen?
Spider-Man: We definitely need to curb our dependence on incredibly dangerous science experiments taking place right in the middle of the city near raving crackpots who hate me. That’s where I’d start.

He should just be happy that the Large Hadron Collider is 1 - broken and 2 - not in New York City. Because that totally sounds like a supervillian tool to me.
