> I absolutely agree with Wraith on this... the Green Goblin put Spider-Man in a no-win situation. Spidey couldn't physically reach Gwen in time to catch her, and if he didn't try to save her with webbing, she would have hit the water and died. In all honesty, the whole "falling vs. webbing" debate is irrelevant to me, because the actions of the Green Goblin would have resulted in Gwen's death no matter what. Even if an autopsy revealed a broken neck killed Gwen, anyone who knows the whole story wouldn't blame Spidey in the slightest.

Except for Spider-Man himself. And that's why it is relevant, in the comics at least, because even if it's absolutely true that the Green Goblin is wholly responsible--and I agree that it is--Peter Parker will always suspect his webbing snapped her neck, and always wonder if he could have saved her if he'd acted differently, and that will always be with him.
