    Trivia (1)

    • In real life, there is simply no way that anti-crime would have attempted an apprehension of a cop killer without assistance from the Emergency Services Unit (ESU, known elsewhere as SWAT). ESU would have been running the show and *may* have allowed anti-crime to assist. Since they knew that Spider was putting Teflon in the bullets, an ambulance would have been at the scene as well.
