Spider-Man PS4 Update: Fantastic Four Themed Costumes

The Fantastic Four and Spider-Man have a long history together. So of course his FF costumes would find their way into the PlayStation 4 Insomniac game.

These 2 costumes will be coming to the popular game:

Per Polygon:

The Bombastic Bag-Man suit, in which Peter Parker wears a paper bag over his head and an old-school Fantastic Four uniform over the rest of his body, and the Future Foundation suit, a reference to the rebranded FF of which Spider-Man was a member, are available for Marvel’s Spider-Man as part of a free update today.

Spider-Man has a long history with the Fantastic Four. The family supergroup appeared on the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #1. In that issue, Spider-Man broke into the Fantastic Four’s headquarters in a misguided attempt to get a job with the group — he abandoned the attempt when the Four told him they worked unpaid. In issue #258 of the same series, Spider-Man turns to the Fantastic Four’s Reed Richards for help in understanding his new suit, the black costume that would go on to become one half of the anti-hero Venom. When Spider-Man was separated from his alien symbiote, Johnny Storm, long-time friend of the webslinger, loaned him a costume (and a paper bag) to help Peter conceal his secret identity. And lo, the Bombastic Bag-Man was born.

Spider-Man’s Future Foundation costume comes from another team founded by Fantastic Four’s Reed Richards. The Future Foundation, whose members have included the likes of Spider-Man, Dr. Doom, Ant-Man, the original Fantastic Four, and Reed and Sue Richards’ super-powered kids, wore slick, matching black-and-white costumes. The Future Foundation debuted in 2010, in Fantastic Four #579, and Spider-Man joined the group a year later, replacing the Human Torch, in FF #1.

The Bombastic Bag-Man and Future Foundation suit are included as part of patch 1.14 for Marvel’s Spider-Man on PlayStation 4.
