The Infinity War is the greatest comic-book event in the history of Marvel comics. The upcoming MCU movie ‘Avengers Infinity War’ will be the beginning of the end of an era that has a decade and 18 Marvel movies behind it. Everything that has happened in the MCU till now has led us to Infinity War. Thanos is coming with his firepower to collect all the Infinity stones to destroy half the universe at the snap of his fingers and the only ones standing between him and total annihilation are Avengers and later Guardians of the Galaxy.
Among all the superheroes, there is Spider-man who always dreamt of becoming an Avenger one day. He was introduced into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War where Tony Stark spotted his talents and picked him for his side to fight against Team Cap. And believe it or not, for someone who just started to realize his superhero persona, Peter Parker aka Spiderman did an amazing job (lifting Cap’s Shield) and showed his range of powers.
He then starred in his own superhero movie titled Spiderman: Homecoming based on classic comics of 90’s. Tony Stark also had a supporting role in the movie. He played a mentor and trainer to Peter Parker so that he be ready when we need him for larger missions. Tony gifted him an upgraded suit loaded with amazing features such as stealth metallic arm, spider wings, mechanical web shooters, quick change button etc. which he used to take down Vulture. But now he will be facing the most terrifying villain that Avengers have faced, let alone Spiderman who is relatively new to all this. Stark has knighted him as an ‘Avenger’ and gave him Iron Spider suit.
The Iron Spider suit has been the talk of the town for a while lately. Nerds are swooning over how awesome and comic book accurate it looks. The Iron Spider armor was worn by Peter Parker in a different circumstance. It was a gift from Iron Man when Peter Parker lost his Spider powers in the comic books, While Peter is all well and good with his Spidey side in the MCU, he is terribly ill-equipped to take on Thanos on his own (which he does in the trailer itself).
So Iron Man decided to gift Peter Parker with an upgraded version of his A.I Super suit he wears currently. The Iron Spider armor is what helps Peter stand his ground against the Mad Titan, the devastator of worlds. And the Iron Spider suits just got a massive new upgrade. The armor now is revealed to possess a super powerful weapon hidden in its arsenal.
Before Infinity War is released, the heroes of the MCU must be ready to take on the Purple Giant from outer space. To do that, they need to jack up their juices. For Peter, it is the Iron Spider armor. With each new Promos and TV Spot released, the Iron Spider armor is getting and looking more and more updated and advanced. But as always, toy line leaks have ruined the surprise no matter how hard Marvel Studios aimed to keep the Iron Spider armor’s powers and abilities a secret from the audience. At first, it was the Spider Legs.
A Toy Line leak ensured that fans new the Iron Spider suit had spider legs sprouting from its back since the Iron Spider toy also had the same function within it. And now, there is a brand new Weapon for Spiderman to use. The weapon we are talking about has been a staple of another well-known superhero for years.
Can you guess the weapon we are talking about?
Just this week, the Toy Manufacturer and Retailer Hot Toys revealed a new and close up look of a Spiderman action figure dressed up in the Iron Spider suit for Infinity War. Notice the hands. Find something interesting?
The Iron Spider suit will have the same abilities as that of Iron Man’s. The Repulsor technology was originally developed by Tony Stark that replace the Jet engines used in the Fighter Jets of the Air Force. He later reconfigured it and used it in his Iron Man suit. The Repulsor beams have been used as both offensive weapons and mode of transportation.
The Iron Spider suit, from the comic books, also possessed this ability along with a host of new ones so the die-hard fans of the comic book source materials might not be as surprised. But for the rest, it will be interesting to watch Spiderman blast his way to Thanos and the Black Order when Infinity War hits the theaters.
