Is Spidey about to become a reality?

While standing in close proximity of nuclear waste isn't recommended, we could be persuaded if there was a possibility of becoming the real-life Peter Parker.

A bizarre white cobweb has been found on nuclear waste by workers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Savannah River Site in South Carolina. The strange stuff is being investigated by scientists amid fears that it could be a 'spider-mutant'.

The string-like material has never been seen before on nuclear waste and was found among the spent fuel assemblies submerged in deep pools within the site's L Area.

Experts from Savannah River National Laboratory collected a small sample of the mystery lint to run test and see if it was alive.

True, this could be nothing, but we can live in hope. Now, where's the red Lycra?
