Marvel’s Avengers show off some of Spider-Man’s suits

Crystal Dynamics unveiled some of the costumes available when Spider-Man was added to the PlayStation version of the game later this month. Among the final lineup is a suit based on his appearance from Secret War and Spider-Man Noir.

Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man Costume

Seven suits revealed so far Avengers website You can see it in the gallery above. As the name implies, the “Classic Suit” is based on Steve Ditko’s original painting by Spider-Man, with blue and red fabric panels and a black line webbing design. Its appearance has been updated for the iconic suit, which is a bespoke design for the Marvel Avengers. A little closer to the Insomniac game suit, you’ll find more textures and eye lenses inspired by John Romita Senior’s artwork.

The Bugle Boy suit is Spider-Man wearing jeans, a shirt, a sweater, and a SLR camera on his shoulder. This is in favor of Peter Parker’s civilian identity as a photographer for the Daily Bugle. If it’s a bit pedestrian to you, a more heroic sci-fi look can be found in his Secret War suit inspired by Gabriele Dell’Otto’s work from the Secret War cartoons.

There are two spider armor suits (MkI and MkIII) that show the evolution of armored spider design. The first is based on the art of the Web of Spider-Man issue 100, with a nearly hockey armor look and a motorcycle-inspired helmet. The Mk III, on the other hand, is inspired by the Amazing Spider-Man # 682 Ends of the Earth suit, with smoother, more sturdy armor panels painted in red metallic.

The last suit shown in the news update is a trench coat-covered noir suit inspired by the Spider-Man: Noir comic series. Based on the art of Carmine di Jandomenico, there is an aviation-like face mask with goggle lenses and a sweater with the spider logo embroidered on it.

Crystal Dynamics states that these suits are “parts” of the final design and more will be revealed on The Avengers social channels before Spider-Man is added to the game.

The first appearance of the Avengers Spider-Man was recently revealed and promised to arrive at the PlayStation version of The Avengers on November 30th. He arrives as part of the With Great Power Hero event. This is the next big change for The Avengers following the removal of the paid XP booster.
