Marvel Universe Transparent Variant Iron Spider-Man Found At Retail

Marvel Universe Transparent Variant Iron Spider-Man Found At Retail

Jay Cochran - December 22, 2011
Looks like another Marvel Universe variant can be added to the confirmed list. Recently loose transparent Iron Spider-Man figures started showing up on eBay, but it was unclear if these were legit figures, unused protos or what. Now thanks to MN reader HardBall83 we have our first confirmation of the figure showing up at retail, and a look at it in package. He says he found the figure at his local TRU store. So if you like vairants or transparent figures then you better start hunting. Thanks to Hardball for the heads up.

I found this at TRU this morning while looking for the new GI Joes. I have not noticed anyone else spotting this other than the loose ones being found from Sellers on Ebay.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention - saw a few at TRU today and wouldn't even have noticed if I hadn't seen the post! I'm a sucker for translucent variants so I grabbed one...

I read a lot of the Civil War stuff. To the best of my memory, Tony gave Parker the suit and told him just put it on and think it invisible, and it will go invisible. And think it there, and it will show. There were a few panels showing it appearing on him, and then vanishing, but I never remember him being translucent.

That said, it might have been hiding in the pages of God knows what number of God knows what title. You can't read everything in Marvel it's impossible.

But I can tell you it wasn't in any of the issues of the main Civil War title and wasn't in any of the side stories I read, and I read quite a few. There were some big fights between Iron Spider and Cap, and Iron Spider and Tony when Parker decided to switch sides and leave the pro-registration heroes. I don't remember him looking that way. If he did, it was very very brief.

So, it sure as hell isn't a look that was ever front and center, I'll tell you that much.

Maybe in the Avengers Initiative books with team Iron Spider. There were 3 guys wearing this suit in the Initiative.

technically it could be. That costume could go invisible.. so this could be seen as being halfway in between.

is this variant in any way relevant??

I guess what I mean is, is Iron Spider-Man ever translucent??

Most variants make since. Different colored attires, or someone like Nightcrawler phasing out. But does iron Spidey ever go translucent??
