A powerful light emitted from Spider-Man's belt to announce his arrival to criminals. [1] It was also used as a light source, allowing him to see in the dark. Recently, after upgrading his Utility Belt, the Spider-Signal was able to switch into a second mode which was a UV light setting for forensic purposes. [2]

Another design was created by Ollie Osnick to call Spider-Man and then ask him if they could work together as a team. This version was a lantern. [3]

Jameson's version

An all-new design was created by J. Jonah Jameson to use it from a reflector in a Police Station in order to call Spider-Man if needed. During the reign of the Superior Spider-Man, Otto Octavius, Otto destroyed it, as it would help his enemies to know where to find him.[4]
