437, Peter transforms into a grotesque, humanoid spider hybrid with eight eyes, fangs, claws, and fur. One stage gives him four extra arms, bringing his limb count to a total of eight — that’s just like a real spider! After Peter emerges from his healing cocoon in The Other storyline, one of his new powers is the ability to see in the dark. At various points in Spider-Man’s long comics career, he’s demonstrated the ability to communicate with spiders at times. The spider on the chest and back has been enlarged with all legs streched out in different directions and the ability to glow blue or green along side the eye pieces.
But no superhero Elfman score would be complete without the big set pieces. Other variations on the Spider power set manifest with different abilities as well. Unfortunately, this was just after Spider-Man was forced to manually detonate a bomb that wipes out pre-cognitive abilities while fighting Alistair Smythe and Scorpion. In Spider-Man (1994 TV series), a version of Peter Parker as Spider-Man appears in every episode with the costume, before switching to the Symbiote Costume for a while. While nowhere near as potent as what Ant-Man displays with ants, it’s a power that still allows the user to collect information … from spiders. It’s most notably utilized by a Peter Parker clone named Kaine who took up the mantle of the Scarlet Spider at one point (all featured above). This suit is particularly interesting to see make an appearance in Insomniac’s Spider-Man because it’s a hop, leap, and a jump from the Peter Parker of the modern age, who usually just incapacitates or otherwise knocks his enemy’s unconscious.
Spider-Man eventually acquired the Symbiotic Suit again in different occasions: when he and the X-Men investigated an attack at S.W.O.R.D. One of the most shocking moments came when Mysterio’s hallucinations caused Spidey to see a zombified Iron Man rise from the grave and attack him. Especially with the Stark-made Spider-Man suit, this one might be a little superfluous in the MCU. In one storyline called The Other, Peter is stricken with a terminal illness. During The Other, Peter actually sheds his former skin and then enters a cocoon of webbing under the Brooklyn Bridge in which he has bizarre dreams involving the duality of his identity as a man and a spider. Enter Massacre, a man with zero empathy that loves, you guessed it, mass murder. In this case, the MK II suit was created to deal with Massacre, a murderer with shrapnel in his head that dulled his empathy and capacity for emotion.
The noir suit Peter Parker is known for using guns, killing, and in general doing whatever it takes to get the job done in a darker vigilante fashion. There’s a lot of history between the Scarlet Spider (Ben Reilly) and Spider-Man (Peter Parker) but in a lot of ways they’re cut from the same gene pool. The power the Scarlet Spider suit has in-game is a direct reference to the way Scarlet Spider has often decayed as his genetic structure breaks down upon death. Over the years, his character’s iconic suit has evolved, but regardless, it’s still uncomfortable. There is not much webbing/lines all over the costume, however, this is due to a budgeting problem the show had.
That said, Ben Reilly has struggled both with his sense of identity, the genetic instability of clone genes, and his many, many deaths over the years. Fun fact, Ben Reilly created his name by combining Uncle Ben with Aunt May’s maiden name. These superhero costumes include Batman Costumes, DC Comics, Marvel Costume Ideas, and Superhero Costumes that moms have created on their own. Earlier this year, Seattle’s MoPop Museum of Pop Culture had an exhibit detailing the early days of Marvel Comics. A series of touchscreen interfaces let exhibit visitors quickly flip through histories of superheroes and real-life artists alike. Let us know in the comments below! So, let’s dive into everything you need to know about the suits of Insomniac’s Spider-Man, all the references, the comic book tie-ins, and the secret suits from across New York. The Noir Suit is a carryover from Earth-90214, which follows a Peter Parker raised during the Great Depression rather than modern day New York.
