Marvel’s Spider-Man stands as one of the year’s top games, and it looks like Peter Parker isn’t done riding its success. After all, Spider-Geddon is four issues in, and the special comic run just brought one of Spider-Man’s PS4 dreams a reality.
So, yes — Spider-Cop is a very real thing, and fans would like to meet the guy as soon as possible.
The big reveal came in the latest issue of Spider-Geddon. Issue 4 followed a variety of Spider-Men as the gathered on Leopardon, the mecha suit operated by Japan’s Spider-Man. It is there Marvel’s Spider-Man learns his fantasy about Spider-Cop is not quite as fictional as he thought.
“How about this guy,” one Spider-Man is heard asking about another pictured hero. “He’s a cop. A grizzled veteran of the force.”
To the side, Marvel’s Spider-Man overhears the pitch, and Peter is plenty emotional over the reveal.
“Spider-Cop actually exists,” the hero asks. “I can’t express how happy this makes me.”
For those of you confused about this Spider-Cop business, it comes right from the hero’s latest PS4 outing. Marvel’s Spider-Man follows an older Peter as he saves New York City on the daily from baddies. After building a repertoire with detective Yuri Watanabe, the pair lean on each other for intel, but Peter cannot do so without bringing up his other-other secret identity, Spider-Cop.
All Peter pitches down his voice, he enters Spider-Cop mode, and the hero makes up his own whacky journeys as he swings around the city. The on-going joke is one which fans fell for after Marvel’s Spider-Man went live, and it looks like the Spider-Verse is ready to embrace all things Spider-Cop moving forward. Really, how can you note when the hero has a mustache like that?
