Project Goal: Deal with 10,000 malfunctioning radioactive spiders

Project Description

Project Homo Arachno Alpha, designed to provide superior battlefield operatives for the urban environment and as an attempt to capture a segment of the Velcro market, has been a dismal failure. It seems the radioactive arachnids bestow the absolute as opposed to relative strength of a spider on test subjects and that silk production necessitates an intake of unhealthy levels of trans-fats. We need to salvage this project by either by finding a way to market the 10,000 radioactive spiders created or by correcting the design problems and disposing of the failed prototypes.
