My Spidersona: the Orbweaver!

Soon after the release of the now-Academy Award Winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (which, by the way, was hands-down my favorite movie of 2018, maybe my favorite superhero movie ever, and definitely in my top 10 favorites of all time), social media (particularly Twitter) went all in with the Spidersona meme, people's own spider-hero costume designs inspired by the parallel universe variants seen in the movie and in the Spider-Verse and Spider-Geddon comic book events.

If you haven't already done so, scour the internet for these, they're all (if you'll pardon the Spider-Man adjacent pun) amazing.  So much so that I wanted to play along, too. Unfortunately, as a wise person once said, I can't draw for shit, but it occurred to me that I do have at least one artistic medium I do some decent work in and enough supplies to make it worth the attempt.

So I present to you now, direct from Earth-430, the outstanding Orbweaver:



For those playing along at home, that's a generic red hood piece, the torso of one of the Mighty Micros Spider-Man figures, the arms of Mr. Incredible, the legs of a Lego City surfer/diver, and the head of a Mighty Micros Magneto figure. The quizzical left eye never worked as a stand-in for a typical black costumed Spidey but it works perfectly for an alternate reality superheroic me, who stops crime in Bulldog City with webs, sarcasm, and obscure TV references.
