Marvel’s Spider-Man Adds Two Fantastic Four Suits In Latest Update
When Insomniac Games released Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4 last year, fans couldn’t be any more thrilled. The web-slinging action, beautiful graphics, and glorious combat all contributed to a magnificent experience, but the development team isn’t done yet.
In the latest update to arrive for the game, two new suits have been added for fans to swing around New York City in. If there is one aspect that players have enjoyed in Marvel’s Spider-Man, it is all of the wonderful outfits that Spidey can wear. That was especially apparent with the Raimi suit. However, the latest additions to the wall-crawler’s wardrobe are taken from his time with the Fantastic Four.

As can be seen in the images above, the Bombastic Bag-Man suit resembles an outfit a member of the Fantastic Four would wear, only with a bag on his head. This comes from the time when Spidey looked to the ensemble to assist with removing a symbiote that had become his costume. Writer Christos Gage took to the PlayStation Blog to explain:
“There have been too many cool Spidey/Fantastic Four moments to count, but one of the most memorable in their illustrious history was in Amazing Spider-Man #258, when Spidey swung by the Fantastic Four’s headquarters for help with the alien symbiote he was wearing as a costume (that’s right, it later became Venom).
“The Fantastic Four got it off, but then Spidey was left in his underpants (we’d never do something that silly in the game…wait, I’m being told we did). So Spidey borrowed a Fantastic Four costume…but they don’t have masks! So, to conceal Peter Parker’s secret identity, his frenemy, the Human Torch, gave Spidey a grocery bag to wear on his head.”
Later on, Spider-Man actually becomes a member of the Fantastic Four, but this is when the team refers to themselves as the Future Foundation. That’s how we end up with the beautiful black and white suit Spidey is sporting in the image above.
