Marvel’s Spider-Man Screenshot Shows Peter’s Horror Without His Costume

While playing Marvel’s Spider-Man, a Reddit user managed to capture an unmasked Peter Parker while in a rather awkward position.

A disturbing image of Marvel’s Spiderman shows that Peter Parker is better off with the Spidey suit. One of Insomniac Games’ achievements Spider Man adventure was the beautifully accurate animations of the Webhead’s heroic moves. Unfortunately, under the right circumstances, even the most polished aspects of the game, like the remastered Marvel’s SpidermanWeb-swinging gameplay for PC can get terrifying to watch.


One of the benefits of translating Spider-Man into a video game is that the Webslinger is one of the liveliest characters amid the cavalcade of comic book heroes. Spider-Man’s swift, graceful movements command a powerful presence during fight scenes, whether in print or on the big screen. Developer Insomniac Games realized that these fast movements could also make Spider-Man incredibly intuitive to control and prioritized these animations in Marvel’s Spiderman. Thanks to Insomniac’s attention to detail, watching the Webhead unerringly sneak and fight through an open world in New York City has become a key selling point, and one that has helped make Marvel’s Spiderman one of the best Marvel games to date.

However, Reddit user youkno_jayy discovered that despite such great care taken with the visuals, all it takes is one poorly timed screenshot to show its cracks. The disturbing image shared by youkno_jayy features Peter Parker in Marvel’s Spiderman with his neck inhumanly elongated as he gazes out over the city. Youkno_jayy said this screenshot was taken from one of Marvel’s SpidermanThe DLC missions of , during a section where Peter Parker must be unmasked. Seeing her body contort in ways that would usually be hidden by the costume is something a pain in the neck, and best left to the imagination.

Peter Parker’s neck is helpless without the Spider-Man costume

While Peter’s neck injury here was an unfortunate case of the game’s camera getting too close for its own good, many other weird body contortions are the result of mods. Some mods don’t account for unforeseen moments like these, but others, like the playable Wolverine mod for Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, leverage the strengths of animations for a smoother experience. Sure, sometimes it’s fun to load mods to intentionally cause weird scenarios like youkno_jayy’s chiropractic incident, but this method often breaks more than a neck.

While youkno_jayy’s experience is authentic to the base game, a mod that lets fans control Peter Parker without his costume for the entire game could be a fun experience to have. With Marvel’s Spiderman available on PC, there will likely be more ridiculous modding scenarios in the future of Webslinger. Right now, however, Parker should rarely fight crime without his costume to avoid future complications.
