The first day of New York Comic Con 2018 was filled with all kinds of great costumes and builds, with a particularly heavy emphasis on a hometown hero.

It's been a big 18 months for Spider-Man. Fresh off his first solo spin in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he stole the show (and broke hearts) in Avengers: Infinity War, became the center of every PlayStation 4 owner's world with his new game, and now has fans counting down the days until his first animated big-screen adventure, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

New Yorkers have always loved their plucky web-slinging hero, and now that he's so firmly in the spotlight, they're embracing him more than ever. Fans wore all different versions of the Spidey suit, from the traditional webbed-armpit look to the Homecoming jacket and even the new PS4 look. Other fans went with another recent MCU addition, Captain Marvel, while others stuck with classics like Batman and Harley Quinn.
