The new trailer for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse revealed a whole mess of Spidey Variants all suited up in their own versions of Spidey suits. Some of those are more recognizable than others, but one stands out because of its absurd nature and its origin in the comics.
There’s a lot going on in the trailer so you’d be excused if you missed it, but the Bombastic Bag-Man suit makes not one but two appearances during the scenes taking place what seems like a multiversal hub.
Peter has donned the Bombastic Bag-Man suit a few times in the comics and the story behind it is just as silly as you might think. The first time Pete put the paper bag mask on his head was in Amazing Spider-Man #258 when he had to borrow a spare Fantastic Four costume and became The Amazing Bag-Man. Years later, Black Cat stole his suit while he was in the hospital, forcing Peter to use a paper bag to escape as The Bombastic Bag-Man.
There are certainly plenty of other interesting looking suits in the trailer, but this one is sure to have hardcore comic fans smiling as they see it on screen.
