In Earth-616, Earth-1298, Earth-8910, Earth-89721 and Earth-92100, these versions of Peter Parker are seen with a few extra arms. Marvel specially commissioned a few original pieces of art for this exhibit, including this callback to an early Hulk story in which he attacked a hunter to protect his forest friends. Marvel Universe of Super Heroes, a massive, two-story exhibit, began its world-premiere run in Seattle on Saturday with a mix of incredible historical context and Marvel’s strange, narrow focus within the MCU. During an appearance on NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Tuesday, Holland said that he wears the most difficult suit in the MCU.
Insomniac had the rare opportunity to create an all-new Spiderman costume for their exclusive PS4 hit, Spider-Man PS4, black and red spiderman costume which released earlier in 2019. And, boy, did they do an absolutely stellar job crafting a great-looking suit that’s its own thing. All the lining for the costume is sloped downwards, and the belt part is more pointy and droops downwards as well. We wish more issues were memorialized at this exhibit in such multi-page fashion, but as we learned, Marvel didn’t do a great job archiving its original production art. After debuting in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War to great acclaim, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker became a fan favorite character and went on to headline his own solo films.
Peter Parker being the thrifty science-nerd that he is, we can’t include every version of the wall crawler that has appeared in Marvel comics as some only make single issue appearances (though we did include some of those). Production art from Fantastic Four, issue 98, which paid tribute to NASA’s first moon landing. Original production art for a very early appearance of the Human Torch. The collection’s main exception is the first-ever appearance of Spider-man on a comic page, on loan from the Library of Congress for only three months. In The Amazing Spider-Man (1977 TV series), Peter Parker from the Spider-Man (1977 film) makes an appearance with the same costume. Despite all of these new advantages, Peter was still concerned with features in the suit not disclosed to him, and the possibility that they may be used by Stark to control him. Sadly, that’s unknown at this time, but there has been further rumors that the Tony Stark suit could have been updated into changing colors for separate features.
Today was supposed to be the release date for Marvel’s Eternals, which would have been the second Marvel Cinematic Universe movie we would have seen this year. You have to walk downstairs to a “street-level” section of the exhibit to find any tributes to the X-Men, for starters, and none of that comic’s films or animated series receive any acknowledgement. In all Marvel fighting video game series by Capcom that Spider-Man is in, his Classic Costume is his default costume and his game art shows him in his Classic Costume as well. A series of touchscreen interfaces let exhibit visitors quickly flip through histories of superheroes and real-life artists alike. Blade gets some love at the exhibit.
A long arc about clones yielded a casual-day costume based around a sweatshirt; nerds do love their hoodies. Also in the Ultimate reality, before Miles Morales got his red and black costume given to him by Spider-Woman, he fought crime in an altered halloween of the red and blue costume. Otto’s second Superior Spider-Man costume is also wearable, once unlocked. The second version of is seen later in the movie. The very good news, as seen in the first gallery, is that Marvel (which began life in 1939 as Timely Publications) is represented by way of a ton of original production art. In the book, which is an in-canon journal for Shuri that covers all the heroes in the MCU, we get what could very well be the first ‘picture’ of the character, a time before Stark discovered him on YouTube.
