Awesome Toy Collection – Marvel Universe Spider-Verse (Take Two)

I’ve decided to give another showcase for my MU Spider-Verse figures, this time going through a little more background info for each of the Spidey figures.

Here’s an ensemble pic:


First, your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man:

This is the traditional suit that Spider-Man has used throughout his career. At most times it is in a red and blue colour rendering, though the blue has been through various shades and is sometimes even in black, depending on the comic book artist. As you can see, various sculpts for the traditional Spider-Man figure has been released, each with different numbers of articulation, and sometimes even with variant redeco (usually in darker/lighter shades). There are many, but for my showcase I’ll just present the above five figures.

At various times Spider-Man found himself wearing suits of other designs. From left:
(1) “Black Symbiote Suit” – During the Secret Wars, Spider-Man found this suit and began to wear it, unaware that it was an alien symbiote.
(2) “Bag-Man Suit” – When Spider-Man was forced to remove his symbiote suit, he temporarily wore an old Fantastic Four costume with a paper bag mask to hide his identity.
(3) “Spider-Armor MK I” – Peter Parker created this armored suit to fight a couple of bad guys. It allowed him to be bullet proof, but it slowed him down and made him less agile.
(4) “Iron Spider Armor” – Tony Stark made this suit for Spider-Man. It has three waldoes that extend from behind him. Spider-Man abandoned this armor when he decided to go against the Superhuman Registration Act.
(5) “Stealth Suit” – Peter Parker created this suit to combat against the Hobgoblin’s sonic screams; the suit warps light and sound around it, rendering it invisible. It is also known as “Big Time costume”, in reference to the name of the storyline it appeared in.
(6) “Future Foundation Suit” – When Spider-Man joined the Future Foundation after the Human Torch apparently died, he was provided with this suit, which was made of unstable molecules and was able to change it’s appearance.
(7) “Inverted Future Foundation Suit” – Spider-Man was checking out his new FF suit and found that it could invert it’s colour and therefore appeared as such.

Spider-Man wears this “Advanced Suit” in the PS4 game “Marvel’s Spider-Man”.

There are a couple of clones of Spider-Man. From left:
(1) Ben Reilly is a clone of Peter Parker, and he also fights crime as the Scarlet Spider.
(2) When Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson temporarily left New York to live a quiet life, Ben Reilly took on the role of Spider-Man, and wore this iteration of Spider-Man Suit.
(3) Kaine Parker is yet another clone of Peter Parker. After being a villain for quite a while, Kaine turned good and took on the Scarlet Spider role. His suit is actually the above mentioned “Big Time” Stealth Suit, locked in it’s red-black configuration.

There are several versions of Spider-Man from alternate realities. From left:
(1) Spider-Ham – Peter Porker, a hero from a universe of anthropomorphic animals.
(2) Ultimate Spider-Man – Miles Morales from the Ultimate Universe.
(3) House of M Spider-Man – Spider-Man from a reality where the Scarlet Witch depowered a majority of Earth’s mutants.
(4)  Spider-Man Noir – Spider-Man from a reality where Earth’s superhumans debuted in the 1920s and 1930s.
(5) Spider-UK – William Braddock was a rookie Captain Britain from an alternate reality who took on the mantle of Spider-Man, fighting to stop a threat that was hunting all Spider-Totems in the Multiverse.

Spider-Man 2099: Miguel O’Hara is the Spider-Man from the year 2099. His original suit was in red-blue colours. More recently he wears the red-white suit created for him by Peter Parker.

The cinematic Spider-Man. From left:
(1) Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man from Sam Raimi trilogy. Still MOC.
(2) Andrew Garfield’s Amazing Spider-Man from Marc Webb duology.
(3) Tom Holland’s Spider-Man from MCU.

Comic Book Spidey gets the girl, at least, until “One More Day” happens.
