Every Spider-Man Comic Suit Teased By Stark's Plane Lab In Far From Home

One scene in Spider-Man: Far From Home saw Peter Parker design his own Spider-Man costume - and it's packed with comic book Easter eggs.

WARNING: Spider-Man: Far From Home spoilers ahead.

Spider-Man: Far From Home set up six new Spider suits in Tony Stark's plane lab. The MCU's Spider-Man has gotten through quite a few costumes over the last few years, ranging from his home-made suit in Spider-Man: Homecoming to the Iron Spider costume he's worn since Avengers: Infinity War.

In Spider-Man: Far From Home's ending act, Peter Parker got the opportunity to experiment in Tony Stark's plane lab in order to make a suit of his own. The scene was played for nostalgia, deliberately reminiscent of Stark's creating his first suit of armor in Iron Man, and Peter took to the holo-table like a fish to water. He ultimately created a stunning and effective Spider-Man costume, one that even had a web-glide capability.

But before settling on his latest black-and-red number, Peter ran through a number of Spider-Man suit choices. The other options are only visible for fleeting seconds, but thanks to telltale logos or gauntlets, it appears each one brings a classic comic Spider-Man design to MCU. They were presumably ideas Tony Stark toyed with while designing the Iron Spider, given they're all uploaded into the Stark mainframe before Peter even gets to work, and could even appear in future movies. Here's all the Spider-Man comic suits teased by Far From Home.

Classic Iron Spider Suit From Civil War

Spider-Man Iron Spider Peter Parker Tony Stark Civil War

First up is the comic book Iron Spider costume, which is the most visible in the holograms thanks to its four prominent waldoes. In the comics, the Iron Spider costume was a departure from Spider-Man's traditional colorscheme that was intended to signify his siding with Iron Man in the superhero "Civil War." While the mechanical waldoes were a cool idea, the original design only had three of them, which technically meant Spider-Man had seven "limbs" rather than the more thematically appropriate eight. That was changed during the Dan Slott run.

The MCU version of the Iron Spider costume was introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, complete with waldoes, but the color scheme was switched back to Spider-Man's traditional one. That decision made perfect sense, given Spider-Man is still a relatively new character in the MCU and it's therefore a little too soon to go off-brand. Concept art did confirm Marvel considered a more comic-book-accurate Iron Spider, though, and according to the holograms on the plane lab, so did Tony Stark.

Interestingly, the web glide from the comic book Iron Spider outfit does make its way into Spider-Man: Far From Home's Spider-Man suit. In the comics, Tony Stark had wanted to give Peter some more options; Peter rejected rocket boots, but he reluctantly agreed to armpit web-"wings" that allowed him to glide over short distances. "Some spiders do glide," Spider-Man told himself. "I'm sure it'll be second nature." His first attempt still involved almost hitting the tarmac.

Superior Spider-Man

Superior Spider-Man Suit

Rather amusingly, the Stark plane sequence sees a nod to the Superior Spider-Man costume; this outfit was originally created by Alex Ross in the early 2000s, when he was working on concept art for Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man film. It was a striking design, but Sony didn't go with it. Years later, in 2013, comic book artists Ryan Stegman and Humberto Ramos were working on a redesigned Spider-Man suit for Dan Slott's Superior Spider-Man run. They adapted Ross' design, darkening the colorscheme to signify that this was a far edgier version of the wall-crawler; at the time, Peter Parker's body was possessed by Doctor Octopus.

Marvel Studios seem to quite like the Superior Spider-Man look and, in fact, Ryan Meinerding experimented with it in concept art for Spider-Man: Homecoming. A couple of minor details from this outfit made their way into Spider-Man: Far From Home's final costume.

Spider-Man PS4 Advanced Suit

The recent Spider-Man PS4 game features a brand new costume, the Advanced Suit, designed by Peter Parker in Otto Octavius' lab after his classic suit was damaged fighting Kingpin. Although some of its changes to convention, like the white spider logo, proved controversial at first, it emerged a real fan-favorite, in large part because of the sheer quality of the game, and has since been featured in comic book adaptations as well.

Although none of the holograms suggest the color scheme, aspects of the Spider-Man PS4 costume are visible among the holo-images, notably the wrist gauntlets.

To The Ends Of The Earth Spider-Man Armor

Given Tony Stark is best known for making armor, it makes sense that a couple of his designs shown in the plane lab are armor-based. One of the most notable is a costume Spider-Man wore in an event called "To The Ends of the Earth." In the comics, Peter Parker created this when he was working for an R&D company called Horizon Labs, and it was built to be the most formidable Spider-Man suit ever. It incorporated sophisticated technology that could neutralize the powers of every member of the Sinister Six. Unfortunately, this armor was also built using tech that Doctor Octopus was familiar with, meaning Doc Ock hacked it and shut it down in a matter of seconds.

Classic Spider-Armor

As well as the bulkier "To The Ends Of The Earth" version, the Stark plane also has plans for what appears to be the classic Spider-Man armor. This was created when the wall-crawler was going up against a motley crew who included gigantic dragon-like beings and mutants with knockout plant spores; it was designed as a heavy-duty brawler costume to protect Spider-Man from impact, and it was equipped when stronger webbing coated in what Spider-Man described as a "hard-web agent."

The suit has only appeared a handful of times, but it's something of a favorite, and again it would make sense for Tony Stark to contemplate a Spider-Man armor.

Spider-Man's Secret War Suit

Spider-Man's Secret War costume is going through something of a resurgence in popularity thanks to the Spider-Man PS4 game. In the comics, Spider-Man was given this outfit by Nick Fury in order to help get Peter Parker into the nation of Latveria; the wall-crawler was one of a group Fury assembled in order to overthrow a hostile government. The Secret War suit's capabilities were never really explored, because Spider-Man only wore it on the one mission, and even that was only shown in a faded-out flashback.

While all of these classic Spider-Man suits are now MCU canon, the truth is, all of these designs are ones that were always unlikely to be used further down the line; some have already been passed on by the movies, while others are a little too off-brand. The most interesting designs are the ones that still influenced the final Spider-Man: Far From Home costume, such as the Iron Spider's web glide ability, or aspects of the Superior Spider-Man look.
