Even the biggest Marvel fans miss these weird facts about Spiderman’s body. Some of them even he doesn’t recognize. Here is our list of 10 Weird Facts About Spiderman’s Body that you probably do not know.
1. Extra Limbs
There was a time when Spiderman did look like a spider. In a classic Spidey tale written by Stan Lee, Spiderman took a serum trying to lose his powers; instead, it backfired and gave him 4 more hands!
Fortunately, he receives an antidote from Doctor Curt Connors, who later becomes the Lizard, which reverses the initial serum’s effects.
2. Superhuman Healing
Spiderman can recover from broken bones in a day or two and was also able to recover from being blinded in hours.
As compared to Marvel’s more famous healers, his powers are humbling; however, it is a superpower compared to a normal human, which helps him get back in action.
Interestingly, Peter Parker had a superpower even before he was attacked by the Spider—his Super Brain. Peter is smarter than the average man; he is one of the smartest in the Marvel Universe. This is a superpower that will remain with him regardless of his powers, making him one of the most versatile heroes in MCU.
His enhanced speed, In combination with Spidey sense, makes him an unstoppable force against most villains. The best example of his speed was from the Civil War when he fought a SWAT team. Witnesses said he was a blur. An many of them saw nothing before they were knocked out.
5. Night vision
It all started after Mordun seemingly killed Peter only to remerge in a cocoon as a monster. Peter eventually got the monster thing in control but was left with fully functioning night vision. He uses it immediately, saving the people who had been trapped under the rubble of a fallen building.
6. Toxin resistance
Toxic resistance does not mean that he is fully immune; instead, it takes a larger dose to knock him out. The best example of this power is when he fought Swarm with his Army of Bees, which he used to pump Peter full of toxins. Peter was able to recover in a day, helping him bounce back.
7. Body transformation
We see this transformation in the first Spiderman film with Tobey Maguire. We see Tobey shirtless before the bite looking frail and weak, an easy target for bullies. However, after the bite, we see Spiderman completely shredded and covered in muscles in the shirtless scene.
8. Radar detection
There are many powers that spider-sense gives Peter. One of them is the ability to detect radar frequencies. In early comics, Peter used Electronic Gizmos to do this, but he later discovered that Spidey sense could track the frequency within a specific range.
9. Perfect equilibrium
The perfect sense of balance compliments his body’s elastic nature, allowing him to dodge attacks that other heroes can not. This makes him look like Neo from the Matrix when dodging attacks making him an effective fighter.
10. Enhanced senses
All of Peter’s basic senses were enhanced by the spider bite, meaning everything from his sense of smell to his sense of sight is heightened compared to the normal human. At one point, he even gained the ability to feel the vibration on his web, making him much more like a real spider.
