    Hi smartie Warsaw,

    That wrist gadget to shoot webs used by Spiderman?

    Might you write the sentence in “Total English" Students' Book”?

    Thanks.

    I don't have the textbook, so could you provide a little more context? Just guessing, it sounds as if it might have something to do with spiders or maybe Spider-Man, who shoots webs from his wrists.

    Yes, you're right! it's got to do with Spider-Man. It's from the text "How to Be a Superhero:

    "The US Army has developed a device for the New York police, which acts like Spider-Man's webshooter.The victim caught in the net stands no chance of escape as the nets come in three varieties:..... These crime-stopping devices are bound to cause some sticky problems for New York ciriminals!"
