Characters : Spider-Man : Costume : Future & Alterverse
Here's some costumes that aren't really Spider-Man... or rather,
they are Spider-Men of the future, or of other universes or
Miguel O'Hara, employee of Alchemax, who... oh, heck, if you
want the history, read the reviews.
The costume is made from Unstable Molecules, a technology which
is not uncommon in his time. Living in the huge tower cities of
New York, he fights against Alchemax and other huge corporate
powers, and their private army, The Public Eye Corps.
The cape is light-fibre, from a hang-glider, and helps him
glide from tower to tower.
Next, Spider-Man 2211... another version of Spider-Man,
from even further in the future. Only seen once, in
Spider-Man Meets Spider-Man 2099.
Not much was disclosed about Spider-Man 2211, although
it's fairly clear that he posesses some extra mechanical
Peter Porker: Spider-Ham.
The costume is fairly standard, although the cut is quite
distinctive. Also, note that there is a black triangle on
the chest, with the spider drawn in red, rather than the front
having a black spider on red with black webbing.
Note also the under-arm webbing.
What's that? You haven't read Spider-Ham? Hey, get a couple,
they're really quite funny... if you're in the right mood.
Spider-Man Unlimited TV
from the comic tie-in to the TV Animated series. The nano-tech
costume is a fairly major re-work. It borrows the ragged cape
cape from Spidey 2099, and the large Spidey from the Bagley/Jurgens
costume, but the colour layout, the bug eyes, and the shin
padding is all new.
The web-shooters are concealed. Much of the colour is reversed,
especially on the lower half of the body.
In Peter Parker: Spider-Man #90, Peter enters the Negative
Zone - which affects his costume in the indicated fashion.
Yeah, this really is Peter Parker, from the main universe,
but he's in an alternate universe at this time, so I'm
including it in this section rather than anywhere else.
By the way, it was a terrible story,
if you don't believe me, read the
This is Spiders Man from the Spidey, Universe X special.
He has the power to project webs showing alternate versions of
the future, into which you may enter. In the story, he uses this
power to convince people to join the Church of Immortus.
He convinced an older Peter Parker to stay in an alternate reality
where he and Gwen were married.
Death's Head Spidey
Another alternate Spidey. This is Spidey from 2020 in an
alternate universe, as featured in the Death's Head series.
Again, it really probably doesn't pay to get too far into
the detail of the origins and powers of this guy, it's just
another throw-away alternate universe story.
Alternate Future Spidey (ASM #499)
Another alternate Spidey. This is Spidey from ASM #499, where Dr.
Strange sends Peter travelling through time, in an effort to reverse
the damage which has allowed Dormammu to return to Earth. Or
something like that.
Anyhow, Peter sees an alternate future self who is eventually killed
by the police in a grand final showdown. Subsequently back in our
time, somebody proposes this very same costume design for our Spidey.
