Crystal Dynamics has shown some of the costumes that will be available for Spider-Man when it is added to the PlayStation version of the game later this month. Below the final lineup are suits based on his look from Secret War and Spider-Man Noir.
Marvel’s Avengers Spider-Man costumes
The seven suits so far on the Avengers website can be seen in the gallery above. The ‘classic suit’ is, as the name suggests, based on Steve Ditko’s original drawings of Spider-Man, with blue and red panels and the black woven ribbon design. This look has been updated for the Iconic Suit, which is the bespoke design for Marvel’s Avengers. It looks a bit closer to the suit from the Insomniac games and has more textures and eye lenses inspired by John Romita Sr.’s artwork.
In the comics, Peter’s attempts to lead a normal life are often thwarted by the need to be Spider-Man. The Bugle Boy outfit celebrates its constant call to action with a sweater vest, jeans and branded mask. It makes photographing Spider-Man so much easier, you know? pic.twitter.com/IRY9Rjn5e6

The Bugle Boy suit dresses Spider-Man in jeans, a shirt, and a sweater, with a single lens reflex camera over his shoulder. It is a nod to Peter Parker’s civilian identity as a photographer for the Daily Bugle newspaper. If that’s a bit of a walk, you’ll find a more heroic sci-fi look in his Secret War suit, inspired by Gabriele Dell’Otto’s work from the Secret War comics.
There are two Spider Armor suits – the Mk I and Mk III – that show the evolution of the armored spider design. The first, based on art from Web of Spider-Man Issue 100, has an almost hockey armor look and a motorcycle-inspired helmet. The Mk III, on the other hand, is inspired by the Ends of the Earth suit from Amazing Spider-Man # 682 and features much slimmer, heavier armor plates painted in red metallic.
As Peter matured in the Marvel’s Avengers world, so did his skills in crafting custom Spider-Man armor.

The last suit featured in the news update is the trench-clad noir suit, which was inspired by the comic book series Spider-Man: Noir. It is based on the art of Carmine Di Giandomenico and has an aviation face mask with glasses and a sweater with an embroidered spider logo.
Crystal Dynamics notes that these suits are just “some” of the final designs, and more will be revealed on the Avengers’ social channels in the time before Spider-Man is added to the game.
The first look at Avengers Spider-Man was recently revealed, which promised its arrival in the PlayStation versions of Avengers on November 30th. He will appear as part of the With Great Power hero event. This will be the next big change for Avengers after the removal of paid XP boosters.
