1. Spider-Cat

First appearance: Spider-Island: I love New York City #1 (2011)

He's a Spider-Man and he's a cat. Simple as that!

The cowboy-style Spider-Man of a Wild West-esque reality.

3. Julia Carpenter

First appearance: Secret Wars #7 (1984)

We mentioned her before, but here's a clear shot that is unquestionably the classic Julia Carpenter Spider-Woman.

4. Scarlet Spider

First appearance: Spider-Man #52 (1994)

Here's a much cleaner look at Ben Reilly's original Spidersona.

5. Spider-Armor MK III

First appearance: Amazing Spider-Man #682 (2012)

Armor worn by Peter Parker to take on the Sinister Six in the story 'Ends of the Earth.'

8. Sun Spider

First appearance: Spider-Verse Vol. 3 #6 (2019)

Sun Spider is a fan-created character who was later brought into Marvel Comics as the winner of a contest to create your own Spidersona. Sun Spider is unique because she has Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which makes her joints overly flexible.

9. Cyborg Spider-Man

First appearance: Superior Spider-Man #33 (2014)

A Spider-Man who is also a cyborg - 'nuff said.

10. Mattie Franklin

First appearance: Spectacular Spider-Man #263 (1998)

This looks a lot like a version of Mattie Franklin, one of the mainstream Marvel Universe heroes to use the name Spider-Woman.

Original story follows...

A new trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse takes Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, and Peter Parker into a whole new Multiverse of Spider-heroes, including dozens of individual characters.

And as you may imagine, a good number of those heroes come straight from comics - over 40 of them, by our count. 

We pored over each frame of the Across the Spider-Verse trailer, identifying all the Spider-heroes we could, and making our best guesses at others that seem to be at least inspired by known Spider-characters from comics.

Did we miss any you recognize? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter - it's all part of the fun!

Here's a gallery of each hero with a corresponding number from the list below:
