Simple repaint of Superboy from DC Direct into the Amalgam Spiderboy. I did this in 2003 but have just recently decided to join Figure Realm and am posting my stuff from 2003 to current that I am happy with. Tell me what you all think.
An attempt by Project Cadmus to create a clone of Super-Soldier with the ability to control gravity was sabotaged, and a young clone of researcher Peter Parker (who was killed during the "accidental" lab explosion) emerged from the wreckage. The young boy immediately ran up a wall in confusion. The head of the project, Thunderbolt Ross, felt sorry for the clone, and feeling responsible for the boy's welfare, legally adopted him (giving the boy the last name of Ross) and named him Pete (after his genetic father). Pete and his "Uncle Gen" were a happy family until General Ross was killed by a mugger. Pete swore that he would face danger so and make himself the center of attention so others wouldn't have to be, feeling he had been dismissed as just a boy during the incident. Inspired by his spider-like ability to walk on walls, he fashioned a costume and called himself Spider-Boy. Spider-Boy later returned to Project Cadmus, where he was given a special pistol called a "web-shooter", which fired strands of synthesized webbing. As a Cadmus agent, Spider-Boy was assigned to battle genetic monstrosities, but as Pete Ross, he was a photographer for the sleazy tabloid, the Daily Bugle (to get incriminating photos of himself with attractive super-heroines, having become a major pop cultural phenomenon after his debut). Spider-Boy faced many perils, such as giant reptilian killers and symbiotic clones, but his biggest challenge was getting set up on a blind date with Mary Jane Watson (the Insect Queen). Surprisingly the two hit it off, and are now engaged. Now Spider-Boy faces his biggest adventure: marriage.
