Spiderman could win by speed and webs shot.

With full gear Arthur would clown him. Make him unarmed and gearless like in the Manta fight then he can make a good effort.

Good fight Arthur would likely edge it eventually 6-7/10

Spidey. Too fast for aquaman to tag and too durable for him to do any good damage if he somehow does tag him.

@smarinteko: No, he was being electrocuted by Black Manta. The electricity was passing through a hook that was beneath his skin. Then he snatched Black Manta into him and put him into the ground.

Aquaman's durability will be tough to get through, but he has no chance of tagging Spidey. Peter should eventually either wear him down or steal the trident with his speed/webs and then it's game over.

On paper, Arthur should be capable of bodying Peter. But in spite of physiology that can withstand tens of thousands of force due to life underwater he’s probably closer to Asgardian level (being generous). Sure he has a feat of sending Steppenwolf flying, but Peter is no slouch in taking hard hits (blows From Thanos, being hit by a bullet train, and having a parking lot collapse on him). He’s plenty durable and his agility/speed advantage mean he’s going to dance around Arthur. The trident is never going to touch him, and Arthur will eventually be webbed up

If it came to Melee Arthur would undoubtedly win, but he’s too slow to ever touch Peter and gets incapped IMO.

I’m backing Spider-Man.

Way too fast for Aquaman and plenty strong enough to hurt him. Also his webs are a major problem

No one going to address the elephant in the room? They are on a bridge and well, Karathan is a big assist as he can call to her. 'Talking' to fish is part of his powerset after all. He can also summon the trench 🤷‍♂️

EDIT: as far as speed is concerned he fought evenly against Steppy with Wonder Woman. W.O.N.D.E.R. W.O.M.A.N.

Still haven't seen FFH yet but Aquabro is being highly, highly underestimated here.

If you're suggesting that Aquaman is as fast as Wonder Woman (casual bullet timer) then I strongly disagree. Yes he did well against Steppenwolf, but none of them were using super speed in that fight barring Flash and that one time Diana sped over to block falling rubble. The DC movies tend to make it very obvious when super speed is being used, and imo there is no indication of Diana, Arthur, or Steppenwolf using it in that scene. Plus, he wasn't portrayed as having super speed on land at all in his movie, so that wouldn't really make sense.

@heatforce:

No fish for Aquaman, and no -spoiler- for Spider-Man.

Basically no one can call in help.

@deep_silver: The slow motion, the blurred movement, sonic booms, etc, are just vfx to show us these characters are fast; not that those specific visuals have to happen for them to be moving at super speed every time. Lets not judge based on lack of a visual flare when they have feats to back them up. Besides the insinuation would be that Wondy wasn't going all out against Steppy, which is a hell of a stretch. Supes I can maybe understand but Steppenwolf? Nah.

@heatforce:

FFH Spider-Man has a speed feat above DCEU Diana.....it is chalk full of spoilers.

I think everyone is avoiding mentioning it to you.

@death4bunnies: i think I know what it is and that's fine. It's just Arthur's stats plus the trident of Atlan; i don't see Spidey winning. It won't be a stomp due to iron spider.

Here's a question: do we separate feats from suits like we do Iron Man? If so, do any of Spidey's FFH suits outmatched Iron Spider?

@heatforce: I just don't think it makes sense to take a character with no other super speed feats, and assume that they have super speed which they choose to never use based on a scene with no apparent super speed. And I think WW not going all out with her speed is just PIS.

@heatforce:

I specified in the OP that the Iron-Spider carries FFH feats.

Without that specification a argument could be made that Peter can’t move as fast in the heavy armor.

I think the Iron-Spider has more functionality due to the Spider-Arms and adds a bit more durability.

How does he break out of webs that could stop a car going at 60 km/h?

Aquaman would pull off more wins than Spidey

Peter's webs will have no effect..they're a non factor

Spidey's strength is good but it seems Aquaman is just as strong, maybe stronger actually and his durability is better. He took a shot from Superman and was fine. Peter may be quicker, but not by THAT much, his spider sense isn't very impressive if he even has it. Aquaman would outlast and beat Peter.

@tanhausergate: Just wondering, how is he asgardian level? Everything he’s done in and outside water is above that by far.

And Peter high key barely is asgardian level tbh. He was getting hurt when flying into metal and stone and barely making any cosmetic damage on it. If you compare them feat by feat, Spider-Man is out statted by far. If you compare the fights and blows they’ve survived. Spider-Man can’t do anything but try to survive.

@death4bunnies: Oh the whole "Peter tingle" thing? Yeah it's not very impressive nor fleshed out. It will not make a difference, he hardly uses it. He only used it at the very end against Mysterio when he was about to be shot.

I can respect your opinion, but.....

He did that whole scene with his eye completely closed.

@abstractdimension: That is just not true. He can dodge automatic gunfire from multiple sources at once with it

@deep_silver: Sure, but is that his enhanced agility or 'spider sense'? How do you really know when he uses it? There is no special sound or theme when it's utilized. Plus he constantly gets tagged when his spider sense should be constantly bailing him out. He should be untouchable, but he's not.

@abstractdimension: Because he says "Come on Peter tingle" then closes his eyes and dodges bullets that he can't see. They couldn't really imply it any more without stating it outright. And he got tagged before because he wasn't in tune with the ability until the end of FFH. It was a significant plot point that he wasn't fully utilizing it until now

@deep_silver: Yeah I mentioned that in my post, it wasn't until the end that he used his spider sense. It took a gun to his head for it to happen. Look I don't want to argue okay.. whether his peter tingle is active or inactive I choose Aquaman ftw.

Interesting but I still siding with Aquaman. Tom Holland did get a decent buff and I'd think that Iron Spider is his best suit but Aquaman stronger and more durable. Holland Spidey sense will make it close but I still feel that Arthur would tag him eventually. And it would hurt him more than he would hurt Arthur.

His spider sense was unimpressive? Lmao. The same one that allowed him to close his eyes and dodge rapid gun fire from multiple angles in a narrow hallway from constantly moving drones...? And not get tagged? That spider sense? Wew lad, yea I guess.. And he has it per end of the movie he mastered it. So thats not a question.

Anyway i really dont see arthur tagging him now.

@deep_silver: understood but I think scaling regardless of vfx should count. Think Thanos vs Thor or Iron Man. They both have MHS attack speed and in both cases, flight speed. So it wouldn't make sense that Thanos could keep up with them unless his reaction speed scales to them.

Peter is faster and the suit gives him some decent offensive capabilities, but I don't think it'll be enough to beat Aquaman.

He won't activate instant kill mode, even though I don't think it would be effective against someone like Arthur anyway, and he doesn't have the damage output to drop Arthur.

The trident is fully capable of killing Peter, and even if he can't be tagged via a trident toss, Aquaman could eventually wear Peter down, pin him down, and then stab him.
