Marvel's Spider-Man Wiki
Trophy: Superior Spider-Man
Unlock all Skills Gold

There are three distinct Skill Trees in Marvel's Spider-Man that players may invest points to fully customize Spider-Man to fit their playstyle. Each tree has multiple branches, and players are free to dump their points into one, or spread them throughout.

Players earn skill tree points by leveling. While the beginning selections may only require a single skill point to unlock, later selections require multiple skill points and a certain player level.

The skill tree is only unlocked after players complete the first mission, "The Main Event".
