Guide to the Weirdest Spider-Men in the Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Trailer


Werewolf Spider-Man

Werewolf Spider-Man

We can see that there is a werewolf Spider-Man mixed in the first group shot. In the comics, we have seen Spider-Man as a werewolf only twice. The first was in Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness. Ash Williams’ adventure through the Marvel Zombies universe ended with him in Latveria. Though succumbing to the zombie virus, Dr. Doom decided to reward Ash by giving him passage to any other universe. Ash thought he found a regular one, only to find himself accosted by dozens of werewolf superheroes.

That story was mundane compared to Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle. In this collaboration between various writers and artists, Spider-Man ends up in a chaotic adventure featuring Spider-Hams, AIM running theme parks, and a werewolf outbreak created by the High Evolutionary. Spider-Man does become a werewolf here, but at least he’s able to go back in time and prevent the whole crazy storyline from occurring.

Six-Arm Spider-Man

You probably recognize Six-Arm Spider-Man from one of two things. In the comics, Peter kept mutating, eventually sprouted extra arms, and this helped introduce 2022’s cinematic legend Morbius to the world to help fix him. In the ‘90s cartoon, it was the plot thread that completely consumed the second season and you just could not wait for the third season to happen so we could all move on.

There was also a What If…? issue based on Spider-Man’s six-arm storyline. In it, Morbius was eaten by sharks (plot for Morbius 2?) and never got to cure Peter. Spider-Man became bummed about his mutation until gradually accepting it and those extra arms made him shockingly overpowered. According to the ending narration, the extra arms not only allowed him to save Gwen Stacy from the Green Goblin, but he also turned the tide against Thanos during the Infinity Gauntlet saga…somehow.

Spider-Man Unlimited

After five seasons of the ‘90s Spider-Man cartoon and a big cliffhanger about the whereabouts of Mary Jane, the Marvel animated universe of that era took a turn. A new series started called Spider-Man Unlimited. Instead of Spider-Man fighting his classic foes and being a friendly neighborhood type of guy, he instead got blasted to Counter-Earth, home of weird, mutated animal people. This world is ruled by the High-Evolutionary and crappy versions of Venom and Carnage are there for whatever reason. Due to some kind of rights issue, they even had to completely redo Spider-Man’s costume.

Fox was so reluctant to air the whole 13 episodes that it took them a year and a half. Will this movie resolve that first season’s cliffhanger ending? Eh, probably not…
