Added DiffLines:

* ButForMeItWasTuesday: Spider routinely causes collateral damage and even destroys lives in revealing his truths. In one specific case he brought a film student along for an investigation into a club using libido enhancers to incite orgies that are then filmed and sold. Spider protected himself but didn't even warn the student, resulting in her participation that destroyed her reputation and family. When she comes back for revenge later he doesn't know her name or care.

Added DiffLines:

* AngelFaceDemonFace: How attractive characters are drawn often reflects how sympathetic their actions are at the time. Spider is a great example. In some of his worst moments he can look positively monstrous, but when writing about the plight of the revivals, or comforting children he looks much more handsome.

** Spider's encounter with The Beast in a toilet is very similar to Hunter Thompson's encounter with UsefulNotes/RichardNixon in ''Where the Buffalo Roam''.
