Powers/Abilities: Longlegs has eight long legs, each apparently ending in a sharp point. He(?; it is not confirmed that Longlegs is a male) has a human-like head/neck composition atop a spider-form body.
His face is unrevealed, so we
don't know if he has fused mandibles like a human or separate
hemimandibles like a spider. They two eyepieces in his mask make it
seem like he would have two eyes in the position of human eyes, but we
don't know that for sure. Or perhaps it is not a mask, but instead his
He likely can scale walls,
possesses superhuman speed/strength/agility, and spin webs, but that is
Perhaps he has superhuman
durability from a dense exoskeleton and an internal body composition
similar to a spider's, but again, that is all unconfirmed.

(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3 (fb) - BTS) - Longlegs Secundus is a member of the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men, whose mission it is to chart policy for a hundred thousand worlds, so that throughout the galaxy, great power would always come with great responsibility.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3 (fb) - BTS) - Lacking the money to get a new rocket-bike, Secundus had to take the "slidewalk" to work (see comments).
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3) - The Spider-Mech imposter (secretly a Tentaclone) arrived with Spider-Man at the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men's base.
Spider-Mech introduced Spider-Man
to the Galactic Alliance members, and Longlegs Secundus shared his(?)
woes about not having enough money for a new rocket-bike.
As Doctopoids approached Earth, Father Spider sensed that Neighborhood #1139 had just gone from friendly to unfriendly, and he alerted the rest of the Alliance to this and ordered them through the warp to protect Earth.
Spider-Man stopped them, however, insisting that he be the one to save his world, after which he exposed the Spider-Mech imposter as a Tenataclone.
While the Longlegs and the rest of the Galactic Alliance engaged the Tentaclone, Spider-Man was knocked back through the warp to Earth.
(Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3 - BTS) - Awakening back in his apartment, Spider-Man assumed he must have dreamed the whole experience, but the subspace spider-signal device the false Spider-Mech had used to transport Spider-Man to the Galactic Alliance (or another such device) could be seen underneath the couch...Comments: Created by Stuart Moore, Clayton Henry, and Mark Morales.
It's somewhat questionable in the
story whether the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men story took place in
Reality-616, or whether it was a dream (as Spider-Man had concluded
upon awakening back in his apartment), but the device seen on the
ground would argue against automatically discounting them, so I'm
including them for now until we see definitive evidence to the
contrary. If it was "only a dream" for Spider-Man-616, then there's
some reality in which they do exist.
But, what ever happened with that Subspace Spider-Signal, anyway?
The Galactic Alliance of
Spider-Men refer to the domain/world of each of their members
Neighborhoods, with Earth being Neighborhood-1139.
Longlegs' world/neighborhood was not identified, but it was obviously a somewhat high-tech world, as he rode a rocket-bike at some point, while pedestrians used the "slidewalk
In addition to the similitaries in Spider-Man names, costumes, and abilities, the various members of the Galactic
Alliance of Spider-Men referenced similar characters to Aunt May, Jonah
Jameson, Gwen Stacy, Flash Thompson, Mary Jane Watson, and an alien
Profile by Snood.
Longlegs Secundus should be distinguished from:
Rocket-bikes are presumably some sort of rocket-powered cycle on the unidentified alien world of Longlegs Secundus.
One was used by Longlegs Secundus,
although it presumably broke down (or was stolen), and he lacked the
money to buy a new one.
--Marvel Comics Presents II#1/3
Note: It is unrevealed whether rocket-bikes were strictly for land use or whether they were airborn.
Although not shown on panel, they
were obviously suitable for use by eight-legged
arthropod-types...including those lacking hands/thumbs/feet.
The Slidewalk was presumably a moving sidewalk used by pedestrians on the unidentified alien world of Longlegs Secundus.
