Marvel’s Spider-Man mods were an inevitability following the release of the previously PlayStation exclusive game on PC, and coming out of the gates swinging is this Symbiote suit mod that lets you wear the webslinger’s iconic black and white costume in the superhero game. First seen in Amazing Spider-Man 252, and gaining fame for its starring role in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, the Symbiote costume has become among the most notable of Spidey’s looks.
However, the suit was not among the featured options in the 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man – presumably because of its rather unique nature. For those unfamiliar, the Symbiote suit gets its name because it is not merely a costume made of fabrics, rubber, and metal like the various other outfits donned by Spider-Man. Instead, the Symbiote is itself an alien life form, which, as the name suggests, forms a symbiotic bond with a host entity after attaching itself to it.
As explained during the 1985 Secret Wars miniseries, Peter Parker discovers the true nature of the symbiote and rejects it – but upon trying to remove it, the symbiote binds itself to his body, only being removed via the use of strong sonic waves. After this, the symbiote is most well-known for its association with Eddie Brock, who becomes known as Venom when bonded with the creature.
