Marvel isn’t revealing much about the origins of this new costume, other than that Peter Parker dons the costume following “Sins Rising” as part of his latest showdown with Kingpin. As with past costume changes like the Tony Stark designed Iron Spider suit and Peter’s Parker Industries armored suit (both of which are among the many alternate costumes included in Insomniac’s Spider-Man game), this costume will add much-needed tech upgrades to Spidey’s usual arsenal.
“This design was really a collaborative effort between Nick Spencer, publisher Nick Lowe and me. They’ve mastered the weirdest, most technical features I bring and have helped create something that I find simple and at the same time futuristic and classic, ”Weaver said in Marvel’s Press Release. “I can’t wait to see Patrick Gleason bring it to life!”
It remains to be seen if Peter will continue to wear this new costume throughout 2021 or if this is a temporary wardrobe change. Do you think this deserves to be an integral part of Spider-Man’s arsenal? Let us know in the comments. And vote for your favorite alternate spider costume in the poll below:
