Unlike what we have seen in the Marvel cinematic Universe, Peter Parker does not rely on others when making his costumes and suits. He makes them by himself, from scratch. But in the MCU, Peter’s suit is the courtesy of Tony Stark, who equipped the Spider-Man suit with an umpteen amount of gadgets and advanced technology. As Spider-Man’s superhero adventures went on, he later managed to get his hands on a myriad of suits, each with differing functionalities. The MCU saw Tony not just give Peter one but two suits, the classic Spider-Man suit and the Iron Spider armor suit. The Iron Spider armor, in theory, is way deadlier than the power the symbiote Venom suit grants.
The Symbiote Suit Is Powerful But It Has Limitations
Symbiotes, when bonded to a host, are a force of nature. We have already seen how Carnage massacred an entire prison block while escaping. Venom can also do incredible feats. Smashing concrete like pieces of paper and making leaps that would give the Hulk make a run for his money are just a few classic feats. The symbiote suit also gives the user a form of photographic memory and the ability to do complex tasks without even moving a muscle. But the suit is averse to fire and sound. Even Dan was able to halt Cranage with just a can of gasoline and a torch! The Iron Spider Suit on the other hand, has no such limitations. It’s greatest asset is technology and that, it has in plenty.
The Iron Spider Suit May Be Tony Stark’s Most Dangerous Invention
Tony Stark was known to be a visionary, a man who thinks lightyears ahead of his time. This tendency to outdo himself is why he frequently fell into technological predicaments. The Ultron fiasco is a good example. Tony wanted a guardian angel for the planet. He ended up creating it’s destroyer.
The MCU shows us that Tony always laces his suits with an A.I to handle its auxiliary and complex functions. JARVIS was Tony’s go-to A.I before FRIDAY took over. Spider-Man’s first Stark Tech suit is equipped with Karen, another Tony Stark A.I. Once Peter bypassed the “Training Wheels’ protocol, he gained access to a host of abilities like 500 different web shooter combinations and thermal reconnaissance features. The suit also includes a system that tells Peter exactly where to be at the right point in time. The suit makes Peter a better Spider-Man by giving him additional abilities.
The Iron Spider Suit Is Lightyears Ahead Of Venom
The deadliest Spider-Man suit ever made, the Iron Spider suit definitely comes laced with all the features from the previous Spider-Man stark-tech suit. But it has more features. Four extra spider-like limbs along with a protective nano-layer armor are some of its many abilities. Peter was easily able to hack into his first suit. Now without tony being around, it is much easier for him to hack into the Iron Spider suit and unlock many more abilities if necessary. That would essentially make Peter Parker a hundred times better than venom, should he ever fight him in No Way Home.
We are not even considering the suit’s obvious connection to EDITH, something Peter would have worked into the suit by now since he already has the glasses. The Sinister Six may be coming for Peter’s head. But rest assured, Peter Parker has more than enough firepower to deal with them if necessary. We would even go out on a limb and say that the suit may be Peter Parker’s greatest asset in the upcoming movie. There’s so much to look forward to in No Way Home.
