Spider-Man PS4's Spider-Cop Becomes Marvel Canon

Spider-Man PS4's Spider-Cop Becomes Marvel Canon

Marvel Comics has made Spider-Cop a real boy.

One of the better jokes in Marvel's Spider-Man for PlayStation 4 is "Spider-Cop". The character plays out over a few calls between Spider-Man and police Captain Yuriko Watanabe, with Peter Parker putting on his best hard-boiled cop monologues. He's not real, but he's quite charming in Spider-Man's own stupid manner.

Well, he wasn't real until today's issue of Spider-Geddon #4. The latest issue of the crossover sees Spider-Folk from across the multiverse, including Insomniac's take on Spider-Man, coming together to fight the Inheritors. In looking to build up their army, Miles Morales mentions Spider-Cop, much to the joy Insomniac's Spider-Man. Spider-Cop comes complete with a policeman's hat and a mustache on the outside of his mask.

It's worth noting that Spider-Geddon is written by Christos Gage and Dan Slott, both of whom contributed to the game's writing. So this represents a chance to make a joke from a game they worked on into a Marvel Comics' reality. It also offers a small template for the eventual Spider-Cop outfit in Marvel's Spider-Man for PlayStation 4.

Insomniac Games and Sony Interactive Entertainment just released the second downloadable content for Marvel's Spider-Man, entitled Turf War. You can check out our review of Turf War to find out if it's worth your time!
