  Spider-Man gets Indian make-over
Updated 25 June 2004, 10.08

Spider-Man India
Spider-Man is getting an image change for a new series of comic books set to be launched in India.

Peter Parker will become known as Pavitr Prabhakar, and Spidey's costume will feature a dhoti, a loincloth worn by many men in India.

Pavitr will be an Indian boy in Mumbai, fighting Rakasha, a shape-shifting demon rather than the Green Goblin

Four comic books will be released at the same time as Spider-Man 2, after the first film was a massive success.

When it was released, the first Spidey flick made more money in its opening weekend than any other Hollywood movie in India.

Spider-Man India will include local culture and customs so it's relevant to readers.

It should be released in as many local languages as possible, with the first one coming out in August.
