Warning: this article contains some spoilers for Spider-Man 2!
Insomniac’s Spider-Man games feature detailed, vivid recreations of New York City and storylines that rival the best Marvel movies and comics. But let’s be honest. We’re all here for the suits. Half the fun in these games is unlocking new costumes for Peter Parker and Miles Morales and taking them for a swing across the city. Spider-Man 2 is no exception, with the game featuring more than 70 unlockable suits, some inspired by classic comics and movies and others designed by Insomniac’s artists.
Now that the game is out there in the world, it’s time to break down every Spidey suit you can unlock in the new game and where it originally appeared.
The Peter Parker Suits
Read on to see the many unlockable costumes for Peter Parker in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
Advanced Suit 2.0
This is the main suit featured in Spider-Man 2. It’s a slightly altered version of the first game’s Advanced Suit, with a few extra white elements added into the design.
This is Insomniac’s take on the iconic black suit, one that sticks pretty close to the traditional comic book look.
This is a slightly more stylized take on the black suit design, one that reflects the alien nature of the symbiote and shows more of a wet, muscle-y texture.
Peter develops an Anti-Venom suit late in the game to combat Venom. While Peter himself never became Anti-Venom in the comics, multiple characters have worn a similar costume that serves as the reverse-colored version of the black Venom suit.
This is Insomniac’s take on the traditional red and blue Spider-Man costume, which Peter wore in the early missions in the original 2018 Spider-Man game.
Scarlet Suit III
This suit was worn by Peter’s clone Ben Reilly in the 2017 comic Ben Reilly: Scarlet Spider. It’s a streamlined and updated take on Ben’s costume from the infamous Clone Saga crossover of the mid-’90s.
Advanced Suit 1.0
Peter’s original, Otto Octavius-designed Advanced Suit from 2018’s Spider-Man and 2020’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales makes a return appearance.
This original design makes its debut in Spider-Man 2. The Kumo Suit is inspired by Japanese culture, with “kumo” being the Japanese word for spider.
This MCU suit is seen in the climax of 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, as Peter recovers a missing portion of his Iron Spider suit and it bonds with his Upgraded suit to form a hybridized costume.
This costume is based on the one worn by Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker in 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man.
Amazing 2 Suit
This suit is based on the one worn by Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker in 2014’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2. It also made a return appearance in No Way Home.
Spider-Man 2099 Black Suit
This suit is based on the one worn by Miguel O’Hara in the Spider-Man 2099 comics. It appeared in the first game, and a version of it can also be seen in 2023’s Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Scarlet Spider Suit
As in the original Spider-Man game, Ben Reilly’s original Clone Saga-era costume can also be unlocked in the sequel.
This suit was introduced in Marvel’s Superior Spider-Man comics, which featured Doctor Octopus imprinting his mind onto Peter Parker’s body and trying to prove himself the superior hero. The suit’s tentacles hint at this Spidey’s true nature.
This suit originally appeared in the climax of the first game, as Peter battled Doctor Octopus for the fate of the city.
ArachKnight originally appeared in a 2019 comic book crossover called Infinity Warps, which introduced a universe where many Marvel heroes were fused into new hybrid characters. In this case, Spidey bonded with Moon Knight to become ArachKnight.
Into the Spider-Verse Noir Suit
This suit is based on Nicolas Cage’s Spider-Man Noir from 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. Marvel previously featured a similar character in the Spider-Man Noir comics.
This suit is based on the homemade costume Tom Holland’s Peter wears briefly in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and again in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming. It was also unlockable in the first Spider-Man game.
The Spider-Punk costume returns from the original Spider-Man game. This suit is based specifically on Marvel’s Spider-Verse comics, as opposed to the more stylized version of the character seen in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
Secret Wars: Civil War Suit
This suit hails from the 2015 comic Secret Wars: Civil War, which introduces a universe where the superhero civil war never ended and Spidey and his fellow heroes became more militant.
Iron Spider Armor
This suit is based on Peter’s Iron Man-designed armor from the 2006 comic Civil War. It previously appeared in the first Spider-Man game.
Webbed Black Suit
This is the symbiote costume worn by Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker in 2007’s Spider-Man 3.
This is the classic costume worn by Tobey Maguire’s Peter Parker in the Sam Raimi Spider-Man movies and Spider-Man: No Way Home. It was also unlockable in the first Spider-Man game.
Upgraded Classic Suit
This is based on the MCU costume Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark designs for Tom Holland’s Peter Parker in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War. It also featured in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming and was unlockable in the first Spider-Man game.
New Blue Suit
Just as the first game included a Fantastic Four-inspired costume in the form of the Bombastic Bag-Man suit, the sequel features this FF-style uniform (though, due to rights issues, without the actual FF logo). This suit is inspired by the New Fantastic Four team, which features Spidey, Wolverine, Hulk and Ghost Rider replacing the classic FF quartet.
This suit is based on the upgraded costume Tom Holland’s Peter Parker dons in the climax of 2019’s Spider-Man: Far From Home and again wears in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home.
This suit is based on the one worn by Tom Holland’s Peter in Spider-Man: Far From Home, during the portion of the film where Peter is masquerading as “Night Monkey” to safeguard his secret identity.
Classic Black Suit
This suit is more directly inspired by the classic black costume that debuted way back in 1984’s Secret Wars #8.
Iron Spider Suit
This MCU suit is based on the nanotech armor suit designed by Tony Stark in 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, and which later appeared in several MCU sequels. It was also unlockable in the first Spider-Man game.
New Red and Blue Suit
This MCU suit is inspired by the final scene in 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, where Tom Holland’s Peter Parker dons his latest costume for the first time and swings through a snowy New York City.
This suit is an original design by artist Raf Grassetti. It’s currently exclusive to the Digital Deluxe bundle of the game.
This suit is an original design by artist Jerad Marrentz, one that features a more post-apocalyptic take on the Spider-Punk look. It’s currently exclusive to the Digital Deluxe bundle of the game.
Stone Monkey Suit
This suit is an original design by artist Victoria Ying, one that draws on Chinese mythology and stories like Journey to the West. It’s currently exclusive to the Digital Deluxe bundle of the game.
This suit is an original design by artist Joel Mandish, one that somewhat resembles the PymTech suits worn by the Avengers in 2019’s Avengers: Endgame. It’s currently exclusive to the Digital Deluxe bundle of the game.
25th Century Suit
This futuristic, astronaut-like suit is an original design by artist Anthony Francisco. It’s currently exclusive to the Digital Deluxe bundle of the game.
The Miles Morales Suits
Read on to see the many unlockable costumes for Miles Morales in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.
The Upgraded Suit is Miles Morales’ new costume for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It’s a refreshed version of his Classic Suit with more detailed costume lines and a more prominent web design on his mask and chest.
The Evolved Suit is a new costume for Miles Morales that seems to value the comfort of its wearer with an open top, hood, and sneakers.
Family Business Suit
The Family Business Suit gives Miles a sleek costume with metal plating and gold accents, and while you can’t tell from the picture, lights race across the grooves in the suit, giving it a high-tech appeal. The green and purple variant is, of course, a nod to his Uncle Aaron aka the Prowler.
Mile Morales’ Classic Suit is a faithful re-creation of his first costumed appearance in the comic books, as designed by artist Sara Pichelli.
The T.R.A.C.K. Suit makes a return from Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Designed by comic book artist Javier Garrón, its long and unbroken lines from chest to toe give it a fast and sleek look. T.R.A.C.K. stands for Time Response Activated Circuit Kinetic Suit.
Brooklyn 2099 Suit
Designed by artist Taurin Clarke, the Brooklyn 2099 Suit appears to be an upgraded version of Miles Morales’ costume as it would appear in the Marvel 2099 Universe. Miles had a 2099 Suit in his solo game, but this is a brand new spin on the idea where the suit is a metallic shell with glowing spider-emblem and Miles has a more militaristic look with the utility belt, pants, and wrist accessories.
The Sportswear Suit is the first costume that Miles puts on in his solo game.
Life Story Suit
Spider-Man: Life Story is a comic book that tells the story of a Peter Parker who ages in “real time.” It starts in the 1960s and catches up with an aging Peter once per decade. Miles appears late in the series, donning this suit as he takes over for an elderly Peter.
Miles Morales 2099 Suit
Spider-Man 2099 aka Miguel O’Hara was a futuristic spin on Spider-Man, and in Miles’ solo game he was given this 2099 look very much inspired by Miguel’s, right down to the sharp talons on his forearms.
Advanced Tech Suit
This Advanced Tech Suit was given to players for free in the 1.9 update to Spider-Man: Miles Morales. It’s a suped-up, high-tech version of Miles’ classic costume with metal plating and light-up elements.
Shadow Spider Suit
What if Miles Morales was reinvented as a fantasy character? Comic book artist Sean Izaakse imagined just that when he designed this Rogue version of Miles for Champions #25, where Miles and his fellow superhero teammates were transported to Weirdworld and given dramatic makeovers.
Miles Morales 2020 Suit
The Daft Punk-inspired Miles Morales costume complete with light-up rave helmet is back after its first appearance in Spider-Man: Miles Morales.
Purple Reign Suit
Originally earned by helping out Uncle Aaron, this green-and-purple costume has Miles suited up like the Prowler.
Bodega Cat Suit
The fan-favorite Bodega Cat Suit returns! The cat from Teo’s Bodega can join Miles Morales on his high-flying adventures as the one and only Spider-Cat.
The Forever Suit is Miles Morales’ costume reimagined with a Black Panther spin, complete with cat eyes, pointy ears, and clawed feet. The name is, of course, a nod to the “Wakanda Forever” mantra.
The Homemade Suit returns, showing Miles in a hastily-assembled Spider-Man costume with goggles, a hoodie with a spider-logo drawn across it, and work boots. It’s quite reminiscent of Peter’s first Spidey look in Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Into the Spider-Verse Suit
This is Miles Morales’ suit from 2018’s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Into the Spider-Verse SB Suit
In addition to Miles’ full Spider-Man costume from Into the Spider-Verse, we also have his first try at a Spidey costume, which he bought at a costume store from none other than Stan Lee.
The End Suit
The End Suit is based on the comic book storyline that imagined what Miles Morales’ final story would be. In this possible Marvel future, Miles has aged and become the Mayor of Brooklyn, and he gives his life defending his city from a supervillain.
10th Anniversary Suit
Miles Morales made his first comic book appearance in 2011, and for his 10th anniversary Marvel created a new costume for him to celebrate the occasion, designed by comic artist Chase Conley.
Programmable Matter Suit
The Programmable Matter Suit is made in the style of the Tinkerer’s advanced technology from Miles’s solo game.
Where the US has S.H.I.E.L.D., the UK has S.T.R.I.K.E. This returning suit imagines what Miles would look like as an agent of the Special Tactical Reserve for International Key Emergencies. With all that thick armor and those bulky gauntlets, Miles definitely looks ready to strike some baddies.
Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Suit
Here’s Miles Morales suited up as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. But it’s not just a fantasy. In Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #9 from 2014, Miles is shown on the cover wearing a S.H.I.E.L.D. uniform, because the story inside revealed his father’s hidden connection to the spy organization.
Great Responsibility Suit
This returning suit was first given to Miles Morales from Peter Parker to help him kick off his superhero career. It definitely has a “training wheels” vibe when you see it has knee pads.
Across the Spider-Verse Suit
This is Miles Morales’ suit from Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, complete with bleeding armpits.
Crimson Cowl Suit
Another returning suit, the Crimson Cowl Suit is an homage to Justine Hammer aka the Thunderbolts character Crimson Cowl.
Best There Is Suit
Miles Morales steals Wolverine’s look for this Best There Is Suit. This suit comes from What If… Miles Morales #2 where Marvel imagined what would happen if Miles took over for Wolverine instead of Spider-Man. The alternate colors are modeled after Wolverine’s other costumes, including his classic yellow-and brown suit, his gray-and-black X-Force suit, and, of course, his blue-and-yellow X-Men costume, complete with tiger stripes on the sides.
Dark Ages Suit
In the moody, alternate-universe story Dark Ages, the entire Earth is essentially sent back to the Dark Ages when an EMP knocks out all electricity. In this world, Miles Morales bonds with both the Venom and Carnage symbiotes at the same time, resulting in this terrifying new look.
Absolute Carnage Suit
In Marvel’s Absolute Carnage comic storyline, Miles bonds with the Carnage symbiote and comes a freakish new version of himself. In the comics, Miles-Carnage grew two extra arms on each side, so even though this skin is pretty gnarly, it could have been way worse.
King in Black Suit
The King in Black is none other than Knull, god of the symbiotes. His two signature marks are the forehead spiral and dragon chest emblem. This suit imagines Miles fully embracing Knull’s power, complete with spiky bone armor.
The Boricua Suit sees Miles Morales honoring his Puerto Rican heritage (on his mother’s side) by sporting the Puerto Rican flag across his costume.
Smoke and Mirrors Suit
The Smoke and Mirrors Suit is inspired by the master illusionist and persistent Spider-Man villain known as Mysterio. The purple and green color scheme and gold plating resemble Mysterio’s armor and, of course, the foggy fishbowl is the cherry on top. (Does anyone else think the white-and-black variant looks like the White Ranger costume from Power Rangers?)
Most Dangerous Game Suit
What if the hunted became the hunter? Miles Morales is imagined in the style of Kraven the Hunter for this Most Dangerous Game Suit.
City Sounds Suit
For the City Sounds Suit, Miles Morales dons an old-timey costume that looks like it was ripped from the 1920s.
Designed by fan-favorite artist Kris Anka, the EnC0ded Suit takes Miles Morales to the cyberpunk extreme with an original design.
An original design by Julia Blattman, the Tokusatsu Suit takes inspiration from Japanese “Tokusatsu” movies and television shows known for utilizing practical visual effects. This design in particular hopes to evoke insects and heroism.
Red Spectre Suit
Designed by Sweeney Boo, Miles’ Red Spectre Suit is an original design that marries superhero with fashion.
Designed from the ground up by Jerad Marantz, the Biomechanical Suit is an anime-inspired look that fuses technology with biology to create alien-like designs.
Designed by Anthony Francisco, this Miles Morales original look pays tribute to the indigenous tribes of the Philippines, and sports a purple/gold color scheme that evokes royalty.
