I have taken the "Impact!"
incarnation of the character and tweaked the design a bit to give the
character little edge. I know that the character has a real “Spider-Man”
look about him and I hope that it doesn’t offend the hardcore fans of
the original, but I think that it’s ok to let the student influence the
teacher a little bit in this case. (It was mentioned on this site that
the FLY might have influenced the creation of Spider-Man)
The Knobs on his hands are a tribute to the “Buzz Gun” that the FLY
carried in the Original incarnation, he can simply aim and shoot without
having to draw a weapon from the holster. I think that this is something
that was not included in the “Impact” line of comics.
Also I have added a little footwear to his look that I hope helps to
identify how the character might adhere to surfaces. This is a feature
that I want to include on the, underside, of the hands as well.
The goggles, though more shallow, still extend to the side of his head,
allowing full peripheral or omni directional vision while making him
look less gawky.
