Spider-Man and his controversial costume go hand in hand. A few years ago, the comics showed off a blue, white, and orange suit that elicited an “eh”, but the MCU has long grappled with complaints about the suit, from the lack of texture in the base costume to the flashiness of the costume. rice field. iron spider. With fans confused about Spider-Man 2’s new symbiote suit, it’s Insomniac’s turn.
When worn by Peter Parker, part of it is made of gooey tendrils, and apparently an alien creature writhing around, while others are armored, including shoulder pads, helmet, and back plating. covered. Venom, Agent He’s like Venom, and the comic’s original black costume combined.some people think it’s peter teeth Venom in this story. But style mashups aren’t for everyone.
Someone quickly posted on Twitter that they even added a complex armor layout to match the alien body. This has been a common complaint with superhero costumes for years, especially in live action, as the MCU tends to add unnecessary detail, lines, and armor plating to their costumes. Given that the symbiote suit is known for being simple, it’s no surprise that opinions would be divided over overcomplicating it.
But a look at the quote retweets shows that not everyone agrees. @MarAbh999 tweeted, “still looks good.”
“Literally what do I have to complain about being so lost?” @luci8n said.
“I understand the frustration, but to me it’s like a Xenomorph exoskeleton and I think that’s great,” tweeted @_Fabioso_.
“You’re saying it’s a bad thing when it has an ‘Agent Venom’ vibe,” said @Gayb_alls.
Some are more upset about what the symbiote suit means and its place in the story. Debuting in the original Secret Wars comics, a group of Marvel characters are taken to a cosmic location created by the Beyonder called “Battleworld”. Here Peter finds a black suit that he thought was futuristic technology that he could wear right away to suit his thoughts, but later found out it was an alien creature and tried to dispose of it.
In Spider-Man 2, as in other modern versions, he’s fully aware that it’s more than just cloth, and his suit design reflects that. While this opened the door to some interesting power relationships with Miles, some have complained about the lack of cartoonish accuracy.
Wherever you land, at least they didn’t store the symbiote suit as a surprise, right?
