Spider-Punk Co-Creator: Changes Made Character ‘More Interesting & Awesome’

Spider-Punk co-creator Dan Slott has commented on how the character has changed as attributes were added by other creatives.

What did Spider-Punk’s creator say about the character’s changes?

On Twitter, Slott noted that every creator throughout comics and in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse has added something to the character of Spider-Punk and that he’s loved it all, noting that these additions “made the character way more interesting and awesome.”

Slott then compared the process to how the beloved X-Men character Wolverine grew from his original appearance in Hulk #181 to the modern day as different creatives added to him. Finally, the writer said that he feels the same way about other characters he had a hand in making — like Silk/Cindy Moon — and that if he alone made Spider-Punk, the character would have been “Vyvyan from The Young Ones in a Spidery suit.”

Spider-Punk was originally created by Slott and Olivier Coipel and first appeared in The 2015’s Amazing Spider-Man #10. Since then, Spider-Punk or his costume has appeared in a number of video games, the Ultimate Spider-Man television series, and most recently, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, where he was voiced by Daniel Kaluuya.
