10 Shocking Facts You Never Knew About Spider-Man

He Had His Own Iron Man Suit

Spider-Man was lucky enough to have the one and only Tony Stark build him a special suit. The Iron Spider, otherwise known as the Stark Spider Uniform, was hand built, and featured three spider legs that would pop out of the uniform when needed. It was faster, stronger, and more stylish than the original red and blue suit. The suit was used during the Civil War period in which Spider-Man had to choose between siding with Iron Man or Captain America.

His True Identity Wasn’t Always A Secret

Another Civil War fact involves Spider-Man’s secret identity. During the series, Peter Parker actually revealed himself to the world and removed his mask on live television. This major event served as the centerpiece of the story and made a major impact on the world. Luckily, Doctor Strange was able to tamper with people’s mind so they would forget that Parker had revealed himself. This allowed Spider-Man to continue his life fighting crime, without having to worry about the people he loves being exposed.
