Who Is Spider-Punk? Hobie Brown Origin Story & Powers Explained

Warning! This article contains SPOILERS for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was packed with Spider-People variants, with one of the standouts being Spider-Punk. Hobie Brown was first mentioned to Miles as a friend of Gwen Stacy, who said that Hobie let her crash at his place when she was in his universe. Miles was initially jealous of him for his seemingly close relationship with Gwen, but the two learned to work together after Hobie came to their aid in Mumbattan.
Spider-Punk is characterized in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse as a free-spirited Spider-Man who doesn’t abide by the rules of the establishment. An anarchist, he enjoys fighting on his own accord. Though his involvement in Miguel O’Hara’s Spider-Society may contradict this, Hobie does eventually quit the group after disagreeing about the handling of canon events. This sets up his involvement in fighting alongside Miles in Beyond the Spider-Verse, and perhaps the film will even look more into the origin of Spider-Punk.
Spider-Punk's Origin In Marvel Comics Explained Hobart “Hobie” Brown first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man #10 as an accidental creation. Per comic book writer Dan Slott on Twitter, atist Oliver Coipel’s original design was meant to be for Spider-UK, but Marvel decided to adapt the punk-inspired character into Spider-Punk. Introduced as a squatter on Earth-138 in New York City, Hobie gained his powers from a spider modified by toxic waste. He had always been a free spirit, and he could now combine his love for punk rock with his superpowers to become the anarchist leader he wanted to be.
In the comics, Spider-Punk’s main villain was President Norman Osborn, Earth-138’s totalitarian American leader. Hobie used his powers to fight against President Osborn’s regime, starting a group of rebels to fight back and eventually decapitating the president with his electric guitar. After this, Spider-Punk started getting involved with the multiverse, joining the Superior Spider-Army to take down the Inheritors. Eventually, Hobie switched to the Spider-Army to help save his fellow Spider-People, similar to the Spider-Society in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.
