Tom Holland’s Spider-Man received a number of new gadgets in Jon Watt’s recent film “Spider-Man: Homecoming.” And as if the major improvements on his traditional costume were not enough, at the very end of the film, Tony Stark gave Peter Parker a mechanical version of the suit.

The Iron Spider

At the end of “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” we saw Tony Stark offer Peter Parker a chance to be an official member of the Avengers. And with this invitation came the cool-looking fully upgraded Spider-Man suit. Unfortunately, after learning some valuable lessons from his confrontation against the Michael Keaton’s Vulture, Peter Parker misunderstood the invitation for another “test” and ended up refusing the offer.

Tony, feeling awkward about busting Peter’s moment of wisdom, let the stuff go and went along with his refusal.

The upgraded suit we saw during that scene is called the Iron Spider, an upgraded version of Spider-Man’s suit created by Tony Stark. The design first appeared in the issue #529 of “The Amazing Spider-Man” comic book and it was designed by Joe Quesada, an American comic book artist known for his work on “Ninjak and “Solar, Man of the Atom.”

The Iron Spider became Peter’s official Spider-Man costume for a few issues until J. Michael Straczynski got his hands on the character and decided to revert to the older costume.

Later on, during the “Civil War” storyline, Peter donned the suit one more time, symbolizing his divided loyalties between Tony Stark and Steve Rogers.

When asked about its curious color scheme, Joe Quesada said that since it's Stark’s design, it also has Stark’s color.

Here’s the closer look at the Iron Spider.

Iron Spider in Avengers: Infinity War

The thing that made Tom Holland’s Spider-Man different from the previous two adaptations was the modern take on his costume CinemaBlend noted.

While the previous two films settled on the traditional spandex suit, “Spider-Man: Homecoming” decided to mix things up by involving Tony Stark in the suit’s creation. So, created by the Iron Man himself, it’s not surprising to see Tom Holland’s Spider-Man use modern techs like miniature drones, gliders, GPS system, and even assistant AI.

However, as neat as these updates are, it won’t be enough when they finally face the Mad Titan Thanos. So it only makes sense that Peter Parker will finally get the chance to don the Iron Spider in the upcoming Infinity War.

"Spider-Man: Homecoming" is currently open in theaters worldwide. Spider-Man is set to appear in the upcoming "Avengers: Infinity War" on May 4, 2018.
