These were real Spider-Man costumes?

Hornet, Prodigy, Ricochet:





If I understand it right, these were costumes Peter Parker wore in the comics several years ago. As a bonus of questionable worth, you can use them in upcoming game Spider-Man: Edge of Time by preordering from GameStop.

UPDATE: Thanks to the commenter, here's the Wikipedia entry.

  1. There was actually a 4th named Dusk. They were 4 different identities Peter Parker took up after he was falsley wanted for murder. Eventually he gave the alter-egos up and 4 new people each took one of the identities and became a group called 'Slingers'. Here's the wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slingers

  2. Out of all of these, Ricochet still has merit. I would love to see Ricochet still in the Marvel U.

  3. The storyline where Parker assumed 4 identities wasn't the best, but I remember reading and enjoying the Slingers spin-off. If nothing else, the art was quite good.

  4. Oh man, I completely forgot about Slingers. I'm pretty sure I have the first five or six of them in a box somewhere with all my other Spider-man Comics. I remember being a big fan of the Spiderman 2099 spin-off series too

  5. Totally remember these guys! Half of them have been killed off (in the pages of Wolverine and Daredevil) and Prodigy made a minor appearance in Civil War.
