Edopunk is an invented term I've been using to describe this particular sort of redesign/reimagining. It's a blanket term to better cover multiple time periods and levels of realism. In this next series I'm probably going to jump around a bit in the Marvel universe, doing major characters and personal favorites.
Spider-Man is reimagined as Tsuchigumo.
Ippei Ippaku is a struggling author/illustrator of 'kibyoushi', a popular type of printed picture book. He works for the powerful Jyuumonji-ya publishing house, the largest in Edo. Ippei's most popular work concerns the sensational exploits of the 'Tsuchigumo' (named after a monstrous spider), an outlaw-vigilante. This roguish character is famous for stealing from the wealthy and corrupt, fighting violent criminals, and visiting ladies' rooms unannounced. Ippei's boss, Jyujiro Jyuumonji, hates the masked character, but acknowledges the public's hunger for the controversial figure.
Luckily, his boss knows nothing of Ippei's other life- as the infamous spider bandit, Tsuchigumo. Ippei is actually descended from a long line of preternatural Tsuchigumo bandits, a fact that was revealed to him by his uncle on his deathbed. Swearing to use his unnatural physical prowess to save the powerless, Ippei donned a mask and trained in the use of rope-skills to easily navigate the dense urban forest of Edo. Ippei is a master of knots, acrobatics, and a wide array of esoteric rope weapons. His exciting night-life is balanced by a miserable daytime grind to meet Jyuumonji's unreasonable deadlines.
