Another dynamic and emotionally resonant multiverse adventure for Miles Morales (Shameik Moore) and his Spider allies from the studio that brought you Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Funko is now releasing blacklight Spider-Man Funko Pops of the film’s many colorful characters, created by Christopher Miller and Phil Lord. The set includes the neon-colored multiverse menace Spot as well as Miles, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Woman, Spider-Man India, and Spider-Man 2099.
T-shirts depicting the villain in Pop form squaring off against Miles are also included for those who want to complete their collection with the bespeckled bad guy. Miles, the film’s hero, gets not one but two figures: a Blacklight figure depicting him in regular clothes and a phone and a jumbo figure depicting him in his Spider-Man suit, bursting into the action. His magenta skin, purple suit, bright blue eyes, and gold and pink accents are all transformed by the Blacklight color scheme. While Miles measures 4.6 inches, the giant Spider-Man figure measures 4.1 inches.

The other Spider-people are just as vibrant as he is. Along with Jessica Drew, aka Spider-Woman, comes Spider-Gwen, who gets a major color makeover from yellow, turquoise, and purple to blue skin and a magenta and yellow suit with purple hair. Even in comparison to Miguel O’Hara, who wears a blue and magenta suit, Pavitr Prabhakar’s suit is the most vibrant display of color. Meanwhile, The Spot’s figure shows the universe-threatening bad guy emerging from one of his portals. The limited number and small size of Jonathan Ohnn’s spots suggest that this was before he became omnipotent by absorbing the dark matter of other supercolliders in the universes he visits.
However, given that this is a Blacklight figure, they are now blue, strikingly contrasting with his glowing yellow suit. Meanwhile, the Spot is depicted fighting Miles between a field of his portals on a 100% cotton T-shirt, with Spider-Man’s limbs flying through the spots in all directions as he tries to hit him. Fans of Jason Schwartzman’s heinous villain will appreciate how well it captures the film’s frenetic and comedic energy and complements the figure.
Despite being one of the most anticipated movies in 2018, Across the Spider-Verse has done incredibly well for Sony. The film has grossed over $500 million worldwide and has been met with universal acclaim from critics and moviegoers. It has even outperformed its predecessor, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The fantastic new Spider-people Miles meets on his quest to find the Spot and redefine heroism undoubtedly play a role in the film’s success. It’s safe to assume that the cast of Across the Spider-Verse won’t be the last time they share the screen.
Miles and his team, including new and old allies, will band together in defiance of Miguel and the Spider-Society to take down the Spot in Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, the final film in the trilogy, which is set for release on March 29, 2024. There’s no telling if the film will be ready by then, what with the ongoing writer’s strike, but it looks set to surpass previous entries in the franchise, both in terms of stakes and the number of Spider-people featured.
