View Full Version : Costume #4 and gamestop exlcusive discussion
06-05-2010, 04:51 AM
(i did a quick search for this discussion but didn't find anything other then the previous thread about costumes as well, but thought the gamestop exclusive bit (if not already being discussed) could use its own thread)
So far we've got 3 of 4 costumes revealed; Noir, Amazing and 2099.
The person who posted up about 2099 seems to think that 1602 is the going to be fourth, however on another forum that I frequent, a friend is suggesting either Zombie spiderman, although far fetched IMO and also the Spiderman from the "Spiderman Unlimited" series who sports a suit that was designed by Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) if I remember correctly. It has nanobots that gives it's wearer cloaking powers among other things.
Also, Gamestop preorder exclusive is "Cosmic Spiderman", gives you a new costume for each of the Spiderman universes.
Spiderman imbued with power of the Uni Force to become Captain Universe.
Heres a lineup of the (possible) 4 costumes. Is the unrevealed universe hinted at
here? or is it just a shadow filler?
so...what is everyone's opinion?

I have no idea who the bulky Spidey is.The final universe is most likely pictured there as it had 2099 listed months before he was revealed(stupid pic spoiled the fun of guessing :/),though it's kinda hard to make out who it is.Seems bulkier and may wear a darker suit(?).I'm not familiar with the comic books,but maybe it's teh negative zone Spidey,or Spiderman Reign(I think they wear darker suits).Also the 3rd Spidey in the pic looks like concept art 0.o

hmm...good call on those.
what do you think of spiderman unlimited?
looks a bit darkish.
and someone in another thread i think said maybe a symbiote version?
06-08-2010, 02:30 PM
They lok shit imo. I'd stick with the red/blue anyday!
Why couldnt they just remodel that one?

Been reading all the guessing...Man, the zombie and symbiote nuts are annoying. "Wouldn't it be cool if Spider-Man was...anything but a HERO?" I get it as a short lived what-if kinda thing, but that's all it can be because there's no long term motivation or character development.
For instance, there's a plot to this game. All the Spideys have to help restore an artifact to save the universe. How does a zombie or a symbiote get recruited for that?
I'd also shoot down all the Scarlet Spider & Iron Spider theories, those took place in the Amazing universe. If they're going to try an established, distinct alternate universe, it would have to be Ultimate (nah, powers identical to Amazing) or Unlimited (little known, but probably the most different and interesting).
Hmm, after a little research, I'd definitely put Unlimited in the lead. Think enemies:
"...the High Evolutionary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Evolutionary) whose Beastials, hybrids of animal and humanoid attributes, are the dominant species whilst humans are the second-class minority...Spider-Man elects to remain on Counter-Earth...fighting animalized versions of some of his greatest adversaries."
Lots of video out there of the cartoon series, looks a bit cheezy, but I still say it's the most differentiated from the other three.
Or they could make something up from scratch.

a very good response there :)
what about 1602 spidey?
06-10-2010, 06:46 AM
The pre-order costume looks great, but I have no idea what the 4th universe could be.

I loved the 1602 stuff, and would personally dig the very distinct visuals and alternate-version villains you'd see there. But:
a) Again, the powers aren't any different than Amazing.
b) If that leaked image of the Captain Universe costumes is to be trusted (and the spikes that tipped us off to 2099 give us every reason to trust it): no frilly collar!
With Unlimited, you get a very different set of enemies as I mentioned, but you also apparently have some nanotechnology in play which I've read brings invisibility into the mix. I also just found this at the link below: "he has new eye-shields that provide him with infrared, augmented and magnified vision."

so very true...i should have thought of that lol.
now i just watched the 2099 trailer...and after it says "be the first to know who the fourth is " bit it shows what to me is a hint as to what #4 could be and its really got a symbiote feel to it....and as much as i loved the symbiote storyline, i truly do NOT want that/them/it in the game.
check out around the 1min28ish second. mark. the scream and the face.
heres a quick print screen i took from it...you can clearly see eyes and shoulder and head....traced in red cuz i was bored lol taken during or right after the scream
however...on a side note, the gameplay is looking quite fun and im liking the different art styles for the different universes.

i reallly cant say but im really looking forward to preordering with gamestop just to get the cosmic skin and mainly cuz this game looks like its going to be really good. i'd really love to get ahold of the iron spidey skin as well.
06-16-2010, 05:36 PM
i would dig a zombie spiderman or the iron spiderman
06-26-2010, 06:13 PM
It won't be Iron Spidey, as that is in the same universe as Amazing. Also, if you preorder from amazon, you get the Iron Spider-Man skin to download. Although it only works in the 2099 universe.
My bet is on either Unlimited or 1602.

@daishichi: I would just like to remind you that Zombie Spider-man did actually become a hero in the end. I'm sure you know the zombies retained their memories and consciousness, they were just overwhelmed with the hunger for flesh, which completely went away if they went long enough without eating. In fact, Spider-man was one of the first ones to realize this and jump back to the defense of the humans.
Having said that, I still agree with you that Zombie Spider-man is probably not ever going to happen in a video game, especially one that could potentially be marketed to kids. Most we could hope for is a full M-rated Marvel Zombies game marketed to adults, which would be epic by the way.

pass. This whole game looks really bad

After doing some digging around on wikipedia, I have a couple of as-yet unmentioned possibilities. Using the third Cosmic Spidey picture as a guide, the most striking feature of which being the solid colored pants here are my guesses:
1) House of M Spider-man. This version of Spidey was created when the Scarlet Witch used her powers to create a world where the roles of humans and mutants were reversed. This Spider-man wears the same costume Ben Reilly wore during his stint as Spider-man in the main marvel universe. In this World, Spider-mans identity is well known and he is famous and wealthy because the world believes him to be a mutant. When the truth of his powers is revealed that he is then outcast by the mutant world. Because he is essentially the same Spider-man from the main universe, he has the same powers.
2) Gerry Drew: This version is from an alternate future reality in which Peter Parker retired as Spider-man after losing a leg in his final battle with the Green Goblin. Peter's daughter became Spider-girl, and this world's Spider-man in the son of Jessica Drew, the original Spider-woman. This Spider-man is dying from radiation sickness, and as a result, can not afford to receive any kind of cuts or major injuries because infection would rapidly set in. He has all the same powers as Spider-man except the spider sense. He has organic webbing and has built a device similar to Spider-man's webshooters that allow him to manipulate his webbing into a web-based arsenal, such as a "web missile" similar to the Scarlet Spider's "impact webbing"
Admittedly, these two choices are kind of a stretch, but to me, they make a lot of sense.
