Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered for PC was released just a few days ago but the modding scene has already come up with several imaginative (and cursed) Spider-Man mods creations.
A quick scan of the Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered page on Nexus Mods reveals a plethora of mods containing everything from unexpected playable characters, custom suits, and general quality of life improvements for the game. There’s some impressive ones like the mods which make it possible to swap out Peter Parker for Black Cat, give him the Miles Morales suit, and even the Venom-inspired Symbiote suit.
There have also been some more unexpected mods popping up over the last few days too. First of all, one modder took it upon themselves to make Spider-Man villain Kingpin a playable character. Watching the crime boss swing across New York City and take selfies on the top of buildings doesn’t quite have the same charm that Peter Parker does but it’s impressive to see nonetheless. There’s also a similar mod that sees Mary Jane Watson taking on the role of web-slinger.

We’ve also seen our fair share of cursed mods published for the game, the majority of which appear in this video by jedijosh920. Although probably meant as a respectful tribute and nothing more, it’s still slightly weird seeing one of the original Spider-Man creators Stan Lee throwing himself off of buildings in a variety of skin-tight suits. This is nothing compared to the uncle Ben gravestone mod that appears in the video below though, which is slightly less of a respectful tribute.
Finally, Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered players are also taking it upon themselves to add their own quality of life features to the game via mods. This includes a mod that removes the game’s start-up screen allowing the game to boot up quicker and one that removes the game’s HUD, making Peter Parker’s adventures even more immersive. Lastly, there’s also a Spider-Man modding tool currently on the site which allows players to extract and replace any asset in the game's asset archives.
