Paraphernalia[]

Equipment[]

Beetle's Armoured SuitBeetle designed and wore a suit of full-body powered armor that granted him superhuman strength and durability and artificial winged flight. It has an unusually large number of fold-out rocket launchers hidden all over the surface of his armor.

  • Superhuman Strength: The Beetle has enough superhuman strength to overpower Spider-Man and his team. He was able to throw Spider-Man through some walls in a restaurant and is strong enough to easily break through multiple layers of solid concrete.
  • Superhuman Mobility: He is still able to perform acrobatic maneuvers despite donning bulky, high-tech armor. His speed is such that he took down a few S.H.I.E.L.D. agents within a few seconds, even though he was in camouflage mode at the time.
  • Superhuman Durability: His armor is incredibly durable. He is impervious to ballistic laser attacks. He was very resilient to physical attack from Spider-Man due to his armored hide.
  • Weapons Systems: His armored suit has many hidden weapon systems, which make him intimidate any foe he faces.
    • Fold-Out Rocket Launchers:
    • Energy Beam Gauntlets:
    • Lasers:
    • Missiles:
    • Heat-Seeking Missiles:
  • Flight: He has a jet-propulsion system on his suit, which he uses for levitation or high-speed flying.
  • Camouflage: He has been seen using camouflage mode while attacking the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents at the Tricarrier development site, as well as using it to aid in his escape.
  • Retractable Blades: He has shown retractable blades while going toe-to-toe with Phil Coulson. He even has them on his wrists, which he has used many times to attack Spider-Man or cut off his webbing.
