Overpowered Beings: Cosmic Spider-Man Is #MarvelsMostPowerfulHero

 

OVERPOWERED BEINGS

IvaN The UnStoppable

IN COSMIC HIERARCHY

THE ENIGMA FORCE CHOSE SPIDER-MAN

IvaN The UnStoppable

During the Copper Age, Marvel Comics greatly expanded Spider-Man‘s universe: a new love interest in Felicia Hardy, a new and great black costume and even, new powers. Over the years, Spider-Man’s super powers expanded. In Acts Of Vengeance: Spider-Man & The X-Men, the Enigma Force chooses Spider-Man as the new Captain Universe.

Though the story arc was temporary, it shook the status quo in an impressive way.

Post-Secret Wars, Spider-Man fought an increasing darkness from his alien symbiote. At a time when the hero had finally settled into his marriage with Mary Jane. When Peter least expected it, an accident with an extra-dimensional energy source at Empire State University gave him a serious power-up.

For a time, Peter was plagued by frequent spider-sense shocks and became Cosmic Spider-Man. Read our review to find out about this story arc.

OVERPOWERED, COSMIC SPIDER-MAN HAS SKYFATHER POTENTIAL

IvaN The UnStoppable

Notably, Spider-Man possesses the proportionate super strength, super speed, agility and senses of a spider. Usually, the hero is a Street Level or Team Wrecker in the Power Hierarchy. According to Essential Official Handbook of The Marvel Universe Vol. 2, Deluxe Edition, Spider-Man can lift 10 tons.

In Amazing Spider-Man (1989) #327, Cosmic Spider-Man showcased why he is a Class 100 powerhouse. In a battle against Magneto, the Champion of the Enigma Force effortlessly lifted a cruise ship.

Really, Cosmic Spider-Man showcased Skyfather potential. In fact, he showed the power of reality-warping as he created a lightning bolt by wishing.

Among his super powers are: Planetary Level super strength, super speed, nigh invulnerability, flight, super vision, telescopic vision, super hearing, matter manipulation, energy projection and energy absorption. Later, we will see why he may be #MarvelsMostPowerfulHero.

IN WHAT IF…? COSMIC SPIDER-MAN BECAME #MARVELSMOSTPOWERFULHERO

In 'What If....? (1981) #31, Cosmic Spider-Man defeats Nebula on his own.
IvaN The UnStoppable

In What If…? (1991) #31, Cosmic Spider-Man is #MarvelsMostPowerfulHero. In an alternate timeline, we find out what would have happened if Spider-Man had kept the Captain Universe powers. Importantly, the Cosmic Being showcased his Skyfather potential by attempting to solve the world’s problems.

Certainly, the heroes of the Marvel Universe opposed Spider-Man despite his benevolence. Soon, Spider-Man is attacked by a Doombot. When the attack fails, the Skyfather realized his humanity and decided to rid himself of his super powers with Doom’s power stealing device.

In the issue, Cosmic Spider-Man effortlessly defeated Nebula, a being powered by an energy source of near-infinite power.

It is Spider-Man vs Hulk! In titanic battles, Grey Hulk and Cosmic Spider-Man fight. When children are threatened, Spider-Man takes the gloves off. Quickly, he delivers a powerful punch!

Shockingly, the powerful punch lands Grey Hulk in orbit. And Grey Hulk is tough enough to withstand thermite blasts.

Per our calculations, Cosmic Spider-Man performed a Continent-Level of Super Strength with 1.6312706*1015 W of Power.

In ‘What If….? (1981) #31, Cosmic Spider-Man defeats Nebula on his own. Importantly, Nebula was powered by an energy source of near-infinite power.

In Web of Spider-Man (1990) #61, Cosmic Spider-Man shows reality-warping powers. Distraught over the public’s distrust for his new-found powers, Spider-Man wishes for a lightning bolt.

With one powerful blast, he creates a lightning bolt that strikes down on New York. Certainly, Cosmic Spider-Man displayed Skyfather potential.

With his reality-warping, he showed the potential to affect the universal laws. Definitely, since the hero used reality-warping, the feat is City Level.

WHO IS SPIDER-MAN 2099?

In Spider-Man 2099 (1992) #1, we learn Spider-Man‘s origin story. Originally, Miguel O’hara was a scientist for Alchemax. In fact, he worked for the Corporate Raider Program. Importantly, their objective was to alter the genetic code in order to grant humans superhuman abilities. After a failed unethical test on a convict to grant him Spider-Man’s powers, Miguel resigns. Before he departs, his boss Tyler Stone drops Rapture into his drink. It is a legal hallucinogenic that alters human DNA.

In crisis and an addict, Miguel decides to use the Corporate Raider Program. And he plans to use his DNA implanted on test subjects in order to revert his genetic code. But his rival Aaron Delgato is watching unbeknownst to him. Accidentally, he sets the controls to merge Miguel’s DNA with a spider. Incredibly, the scientist survives though he appears as a dazed, clawed and fanged creature. Soon, Miguel uses a Day of the Dead attire to fashion a Spider-Man. Previously, he is introduced fighting the Corporate Raider Program.

THE SPIDER-MAN 2099’S SUIT

DURABILITY

To begin, the suit was created from the Unstable Molecule. On Earth-616, this synthetic material was discovered by Reed Richards. In fact, it was used to create fabric that could adapt to a certain environment. Indeed, it can mimic its wearer’s physical super powers. For example, it can mimic Invisible Woman‘s invisibility and turn invisible. On Earth-928, Miguel can use his claws without ripping the costume.

WEB CAPE

Perhaps, the suit’s most incredible feature. At first, Miguel acquired a torn piece of glider cloth from a Thor worshipper. Later, he attached it to his costume as a cape-like cloth. In fact, the web cape is very useful since it grants Spider-Man 2099 the ability to glide over rooftops.

5 MYTHS ABOUT BEN REILLY IN THE ‘CLONE SAGA’

5. SPIDER-MAN KILLED BEN REILLY

In Amazing Spider-Man (1975) #149, Spider-Man learns about the existence of his clone. During the issue, the Jackal reveals his identity as Peter Parker’s biology professor. Namely, Miles Warren was secretly in love with Gwen Stacy. When Gwen died, he blamed Spider-Man and plotted revenge. After an unethical experiment, Warren realized Serba wanted to clone a human Gwen

In madness, he killed Serba and became the Jackal. Later, he clones Gwen as well as Peter Parker. In the issue, Spider-Man and his clone fight for the last one standing. However, Warren seemingly kills the Spider-Man clone when he fails to stop his bomb. Fortunately, Spider-Man escapes. In the end, Spider-Man buries the body in an industrial chimney. In reality, Ben Reilly was alive and survived thanks to a chemical the Jackal previously injected in him.

4. BEN REILLY IS A CRIMINAL

Later, after Ben Reilly assumes a costumed identity, he becomes the Jackal. Previously, Ben Reilly found illegal employment. Thanks to a scientist he met a scientist named Seward Trainer, he obtained fake paperwork. However, his illegal work was inconsistent.

After a month of work, his employers usually found out about his fake work history, and Ben had to move. In addition, Ben even worked in Italy as an English teacher. However, he had to leave after the local Mafia found out about his fake credentials. Though he was illegal, Ben was not a criminal supervillain.

3. BEN REILLY IS THE TRUE PETER PARKER

In Web of Spider-Man (1994) #117, Ben Reilly returned to New York. After an initial mistrust, both Peter Parker and his clone got along. However, Peter was stunned when Seward Trainer revealed Ben Reilly was the true Peter Parker and Peter Parker was the clone. Fortunately, each hero agreed to keep their civilian identities. When Mary Jane became pregnant, Peter moved with her out of New York.

For a while, Ben Reilly would have adventures and lead a normal life. Finally, Trainer was revealed to be an agent of Norman Osborn who survived apparent death after The Night Gwen Stacy Died. In fact, he was the mastermind behind the clone saga. In the end, Ben disintegrated after Green Goblin’s glider pierced him, proving he was the clone.

CLICK ON SPIDER-MAN: CLONE SAGA OMNIBUS VOL. 1 BELOW TO BUY THE GRAPHIC BOOK ON AMAZON.

2. BEN REILLY NEVER BECAME SPIDER-MAN

When Peter and Mary Jane moved out of New York, Ben initially took on the costume of the Scarlet Spider. Later, feeling guilty over Uncle Ben’s death, he became Spider-Man.

Later, Spider-Man wold have adventures with the Human Torch and the X-Men. In addition, he would fight Mysterio and help defeat Green Goblin in his last battle before his death. However, he would return.

1. SPIDER-MAN IS STRONGER THAN BEN REILLY

In many respects, Ben Reilley proved a capable Spider-Man.

During DC Versus Marvel, he proved capable of defeating the stronger Superboy.
