I have to say, I found this story a little jarring.  In the end, Peter kills the Wasp Spider totem.  He appears to wrestle with his decision to kill (a little) in the panels above, but he also is willing to kill his enemies in subsequent issues of the JMS run.  As a scientist, I wouldn’t think he’d devalue the life of another species–particularly one that is sentient, capable of language, etc., but he seems almost too willing to kill in these issues.
