The modding community has wasted no time in getting Invincible's 'Agent Spider' costume into the PC version of Insomniac's best-selling 2018 Spider-Man game.

The Invincible season finale debuted on Thursday, but it appears the modding community is moving quickly to incorporate one of the most thrilling appearances from the episode into Insomniac Games' Spider-Man (2018).

The Invincible finale pits the show's lead character against a reality-teleporting antagonist who forces Invincible to complete a challenging, dimension-hopping gauntlet meant to exhaust the protagonist.

This narrative is taken straight from the Invincible comic book, in which Invincible actually does meet and befriend Spider-Man, along with several Avengers.

But the Prime Video animated series was unable to utilize Spider-Man in the episode owing to legal rights, so they made Agent Spider, a thinly-disguised pastiche of the wall-crawler.

As 2018's Spider-Man is available on PC, it seems the modding community has wasted no time in putting Agent Spider into the game. 


Recently, the 2018 game's sequel, Spider-Man 2 only required 24 hrs to become the fastest-selling PlayStation original video game of all time, selling over 2.5 million copies. 

Most gamers have moved on to the sequel but unfortunately, Spider-Man 2 is not on PC yet, so the modding community will have to wait before they'll get the chance to have Agent Spider web-slinging next to Miles Morales.

With all the reality and dimension hopping going on in comics these days, how long do you think it will take for Marvel to officially incorporate Agent Spider into the multiverse?

Perhaps he'll have a cameo in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse? This feels exactly like the type of joke Phil Lord and Christopher Miller would incorporate into their beloved animated franchise.

Spider-Man 2 is a direct sequel to Marvel's Spider-Man (released in 2018) and 2020's Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and it was released on October 20, 2023 for the PS5.

The game features Peter Parker and Miles Morales as the two playable characters, who will team up to face a new threat: Venom. Other villains that have been confirmed to appear in the game include Kraven the Hunter, The Lizard, Sandman, Black Cat, and more.

When it was released in 2018, the first Spider-Man game received positive reviews from critics as the gameplay, aesthetics, plot, and characterizations all received high marks. Based on 120 reviews, the game had an overall Metacritic score of 91%. 

The sequel also currently has an overall Metacritic score of 91% from 130 reviews.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: The Spider-Men, Peter Parker and Miles Morales, enter new chapters in their lives as they balance their responsibilities as protectors of Marvel’s New York. As Harry Osborn, Peter’s best friend, returns into his life, and Miles looks to build his future beyond high school, the relationship between our heroes is tested and strained as the Symbiote appears to threaten them, the city, and the ones they love.

Developed by Insomniac Games in collaboration with Marvel Games and PlayStation, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 continues the saga of the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man franchise.

That's pretty impressive. And I really like the style. Looks better than the other animated suits that can be worn in the game imo

He did say he is dealing with Multiverse stuff. The door is always open.

Invincible’s challenge with balancing his Mark life and his superhero life, coupled with how tortured he is with what he “has” to do to protect those he loves is top tier stuff.

Man we really haven’t gotten a superhero adaptation that explores these tropes this well before.

Looking forward to season 3.

I'm in the minority but I wish Seth Rogen will stop with little nods to other cb universes. Idk. Fully expected from him but kinda shrinks down Invincible's status to me a bit.

I like his joke he said on the Boys though- VCU. Lol

@Mrtoke - It's a reference to the comics. Invincible does end up in the Marvel universe

@Evansly - oh wtf? Did a lil research. The I on his suit is literally the I for Image comics but I never knew that Marvel part.

@Mrtoke - Seth Rogen needs to completely disappear. His destruction of the Turtles just shows how lost this world is.

@Mrtoke - he didn't exist until that episode of invincible came out. In the comics it was an actual crossover with spiderman. They changed it to agent spider for legal reasons.

Now add a new mod that has the characters say "agent spider" instead of "spider-man". But do it in a really obvious way where you can tell its like a text to speech voice instead of the actual VA.

Great, modders continue to ruin games. No good game needs mods, proof? Skyrim is one of the worst games to launch in recent times and nobody plays it without mods. Starfield is being modded to death as well. If a game is that bad/boring to you, play something else. Todd Howard has been successful for the last decade just because some dull modders gets excited that Skyrim is coming out again and they get to mod it again. Bugthesda needs to be shut down.
