It makes getting around easier and the webs work as a long-range means of attack and defense. He's also used them to save people (and snap his girlfriend's neck...)

I forget. Probably around the 10-25 ton range.

Spiders make webs from their abdomen.....

Translate that into the human body.

Pretty sure at one point Parker had organic webbing, which came out of his wrists, and not his abdomen.

So.. yeah.
