IN the letters column of the current issue # 8, the writer briefly stated that they were 8 Spidermen that they could not use in this story line due to legal reasons. My question to the board is who are they?
1. The one that immediately comes to mind is Spiderboy a combination of Spidey and Superboy from Amalgam (Dc and Marvel)
2. Another one might be the Sam Rami film Spidey/Tobey Maguire character owned by Sony.
3. If true, then Andrew Garfield/Spidey would also be in contention. Marvel printed movie versions of these characters so they would qualify.
4. The Electric Company Spidey version would also apply as well since it is probably owned by the same company that produces Sesame Street. The comic lasted 57 issues and there was a magazine version as well.
The Spiderman Unlimted cartoon from the late 90s where he goes to another planet would be the 5th one - I believe it is owned by Fox.
6. IF the cartoon trend continues, then the Spidey from the all digital series - Spiderman the animated series (I could be wrong with the title)
where the Ian Ziering (bonde guy from 90210 plays Harry Osborn) and Neil Patrick Harris plays Peter Parker - also owned by Sony. 7. The series right after Unlimited was Spectacular Spiderman (produced in Vancouver, and in my opinion the best one so far -). And number 8 is probably the current cartoon (and crap in my opinion - too childish).
The funny thing is I was only going to write about one Spidey version that did not or will not be in Spiderverse. As I started typing this
text, all these versions came to me. So, am missing something or is this the definitive 8 SPideys that they were referencing in the letters column

I have no idea if you're right, but those are some very smart deductions.

They've already said that the Sony Spider-Mans are off-limits. So that includes:

Spider-Man movies (Tobey Maguire)
Amazing Spider-Man movies (Andrew Garfield)
Spider-Man: The New Animated Series (MTV CGI cartoon series)
The Spectacular Spider-Man (cartoon series)


Spider-Boy, the Amalgam character, has already been confirmed off-limits for obvious reasons.

I think it's safe to say that Lego Spider-Man is off-limits too.

Maybe the "Turn Off the Dark" musical Spider-Man is off-limits? That's just a guess though.

The other animated Spider-Mans are fine. Spider-Man Unlimited and Amazing Friends have already appeared, and 60s Spider-Man and Ultimate Spider-Man have already been confirmed. The Electric Company Spider-Man was confirmed to be appearing at the C2E2 panel.

I notice that none of you are mentioning the John Semper animated Spidey, who should probably appear given that Spider-Verse seems very like the final arc of that series. (Has he appeared? I haven't been keeping up.)

On Twitter, Dan Slott said that he considers Spider-Man Unlimited to be a continuation of the '90s Spider-Man.

Eww, if Spider-Man Unlimited was canon to 90's Spider-Man, I feel like they should have referenced at least one thing from it. Where/when he found MJ, The Secret War, etc. Heck, Venom and Carnage act completely different, and wasn't Carnage supposed to have been then same universe version that made Spider-Carnage?

Sure, there are 616 books that sometimes forget a bunch of stuff, but eww... Unlimited was too different to not be it's own thing.

I would love to see the Spider-man from Twisted Toyfare. That guy cracks me up.

    Probably not the Peter Parker who got molested in the Spider-Man Power Pack special.
