The Top 5 Spider-Man’s Suits

While many costumed characters added to their team with themed characters over the years, Spider-Man was a loner for decades with no partners or team affiliations. Things are not the same these days, as Spider-Man has worked with various teams of Avengers and even the FF in the last decade.

The amount of Spider-People has increased exponentially as well, with clones and partners and successors and family all getting in on the spider theme. While some of these new Spider-People come with amazing costumes that we love, some of them don’t quite measure up which we’ll be taking a closer look at today.


It’s hard to find fault in Peter Parker’s design choices considering his classic red and blue Spider-Man suit is still one of the best-designed costumes we’ve ever seen in comics. Originally designed by comics legend Steve Ditko, the red and blue is Peter’s cushy fallback.

That’s not to say he hasn’t worn other great costumes, as fans everywhere still claim the Black Suit to be on par with his classic, and the various armors he’s created over the years have mostly received rave reviews, making Peter’s eye for design a trusted one.


Julia Carpenter was the second woman to use the name Spider-Woman, though she has also gone by Arachne and is currently the second Madame Web. As Spider-Woman, Julia worked for the Commission of Superhuman Activities and worked with teams like Freedom Force, Force Works, West Coast Avengers, and even Canada’s Omega Flight.

Julia gained her powers due to an “accidental” experiment from the government, which also provided her first costume that was so awesome it would go on to influence the design of other characters like Anya Corazon/Spider-Girl and even Peter’s own Black Suit, which was designed based on his admiration of Julia’s costume.


In perhaps the biggest glow-up in the history of Spider-People, Kaine Parker (a clone of Peter Parker) somehow made it onto the best-dressed list after debuting in his first awful costume, which yes, does have a pink cape. He managed to still look menacing while in his villainous role, but we weren’t sad to see the costume disappear with him.

Thankfully when Kaine returned he was given a new suit by Peter to wear as the second Scarlet Spider, which he quickly redesigned into one of the best Spider-costumes we’ve ever seen. The simplicity of the suit replicates the success of Peter’s Black Suit, but the red and black gave Kaine his own unique look that we’re still loving.


While Miles Morales is now lucky enough to work alongside Peter Parker as Spider-Man, when he first put on the webs (a cheap Halloween version of Peter’s costume) it was only after his reality’s Peter had died in battle with the Green Goblin. Miles decided to honor the fallen hero and became the new Spider-Man, which eventually resulted in his relocation to the mainstream universe.

Miles was the star of the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse animated film, and while he designed his own costume in the movie, the comic version was actually given his costume by Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D., who probably have a team of superpowered designers working to bring Miles’ amazing costume to life.


She may be better known to fans as Spider-Gwen, but as that’s a killer on a secret identity, Gwen now goes by Ghost-Spider after beginning her career as her reality’s Spider-Woman. However, Gwen’s costume takes a quick departure from the usual Spider-mold to bring something new and amazing to the table.

Considering that Gwen’s costume and web-shooters were created by her reality’s Janet van Dyne/Wasp, renowned fashion designer, it’s no surprise that Gwen’s costume looks as great as it does. Even when she bonded with the Venom symbiote and could create any costume she wanted, she would still return to her classic look that also appeared in Into The Spider-Verse. The speed of which cosplayers took to this costume shows how good the costume is.

Marvel Reveals Spider-Man’s Bizarre New Costume for 2021

new top-secret spider man costume

Like everyone else in the world, Spider-Man has had a pretty rough go of things in 2020, especially after learning the true identity of the mysterious villain Kindred. Peter Parker will be looking for a fresh start in 2021, and that includes a brand new costume.

Marvel is giving fans their first glimpse of this new suit, which was designed by X-Force cover artist Dustin Weaver and will make its debut in the pages of March’s The Amazing Spider-Man #62. Check out the new duds below:

As you can see, the new costume is quite a departure from previous Spider-suits. For one thing, the traditional red and blue color scheme has been replaced by a mix of blue, white, silver and orange. The eyes are also a major departure from the norm, with glowing orange lenses contained inside a larger black space.

Marvel isn’t revealing much about the origins of this new costume, other than that Peter Parker dons the suit in the aftermath of “Sins Rising” as part of his latest confrontation with Kingpin. As with past costume changes like the Tony Stark-designed Iron Spider suit and the Peter’s own Parker Industries armored suit,this costume will add some much-needed tech upgrades to Spidey’s usual arsenal.

“This design was really a collaborative effort between Nick Spencer, Editor Nick Lowe, and I. They reined in the weirder and more techy features I was bringing and helped create something that I think is simple and both futuristic and classical,” Weaver said in Marvel’s press release. “I can’t wait to see Patrick Gleason really bring it to life!” ,It remains to be seen if Peter will continue wearing this new costume throughout 2021 or if it’s a temporary wardrobe change. Do you think it deserves to become a regular part of the Spider-Man arsenal?

Why Is the Spiderman Halloween Costume So Popular?

We all know that Spiderman can do whatever a spider can. Eating flies and spinning silk webs out of his body may seem a little farfetched but there is no doubt that as superheroes go, the concept of a young Peter Parker being bitten by a radioactive spider and developing some odd superpowers has appealed since the character burst on the comic scene in August 1962.

It was a period when the Western world was obsessed with things that were glowing and radioactive at the height of the Cold War and all the fears that went with it.

But it was not a passing fad and the appeal endures to this day. Indeed Spiderman morph suits – spandex costumes that hug the body – are among the most popular costumes available to hire throughout the world.

Who wouldn’t want to be associated with swinging through the city, firing webs from your wrists and getting to save the girl?

Let’s face it, if you have the physique a well-cut Spiderman outfit has a romantic, man-of-mystery trope about it. Morphing into an athletic superhero, who has special powers, more than one personality and a sensitive side that women adore has a lot of pulling power.

In Spiderman’s original story, American teenager Parker, who was a sickly orphan, is attacked by a radioactive spider. As a consequence, Parker develops superhuman speed, strength, and agility and the capacity to cling like a spider to walls.

Legendary writer/editor Stan Lee and his illustrator Steve Ditko conjured up Spiderman as a story to fill in for a cancelled anthology series. A teenage hero had previously not existed in comic books. However, Parker sparked powerful responses from his teenage audience which inspired an ongoing series and, as history will judge, an impressive media empire, that now comprises video games, many animated and one live-action TV shows as well as an ongoing film franchise, as well as a Broadway musical.

Spidey’s radical departure from established comic-book conventions was striking. Here was a teenager who had not been relegated to a sidekick status beside some older, more-hackneyed hero. No this was a character who displayed enhanced speed and boosted strength.

To make the character even more appealing and astounding Parker was also written up as possessing a precognitive “spider-sense” which alerted him to any approaching danger. With his inherent scientific talent, Parker was able to synthesize a “web fluid” that was uniquely adhesive as well as constructing a duo of web-shooting devices attached to his wrists that allowed him to fire the web into a variety of useful shapes and forms. Parker also personally designed and put together the famous red-and-blue outfit that became Spidey’s most obvious and visible trademark.

It seems amazing now that Martin Goodman, Marvel’s publisher at the time, was not initially bowled over by this idea of a teenage hero adopting the center stage. Goodman even questioned the idea of Spiderman suffering from neuroses, demonstrating romantic deficiencies, and suffering from chronic concerns about his money. Goodman even thought the audience would be repulsed by the spider motif!

As we now all realise author Lee’s instincts were what prevailed and Spidey’s debut in the comic Amazing Fantasy was a resounding and immediate success.

It was revolutionary! From the outset, Spiderman behaved in a way that significantly deviated from what had gone before as far as superhero norms were concerned. He did not selflessly dedicate his superhuman gifts to the general betterment of humankind and crime-fighting. No, the newly powerful Spidey trades on his talents by achieving celebrity on TV. After performing in front of the camera, Spidey refuses to tackle a thief from stealing the TV station’s box-office receipts.

Then Spiderman’s world collapses when another criminal murders uncle Ben Parker, leaving Peter’s only surviving guardian, Aunt May, a widow. Grief-stricken Spiderman then is able to track down his uncle’s killer, only to discover that the murderer is the same thief who he had allowed to escape from the TV studio.

It is at the end of this original story that the moral tone of Spidey’s existence is described as a lean, silent figure slowly fading into the darkness, becoming aware that with phenomenal power comes great responsibility!


There are some key elements of advice that everyone who wants to impress while wearing Spiderman’s Halloween costume really needs to digest.

It starts with getting a suit that properly fits. Going full Spiderman requires a Spiderman outfit that isn’t so tight you almost suffocate but doesn’t sag in all the wrong places. It has to fit snugly and show off the curves you want to promote. A cheap suit will look – well cheap! You want your Spiderman morph suit to end up showing you looking like a superhero.

To make sure that you are the right shape to make an impression then you probably need to hit the gym. To become a convincing Spiderman the gym for a few days is a no-brainer to hone that impressive six-pack.

If cutting it as a superhero is more of a joke than don’t worry excessively. People who are built more for comfort than spectacular speed and allowed just to have fun!

Because Superheroes are wont to disguise their identity from everybody except their nearest and dearest you need to ensure that your Spiderman morph suit is authentically all-in-one. It would ruin the effect if you add an inappropriate and unnecessary mask that is bound to make you appear more like a South American wrestler like Jack Black in Nacho Libre than a swashbuckling superhero.

It’s also key not to forget the practicalities. To be blunt your supercool look as a superhero can be pretty quickly ruined if you haven’t planned how you are going to use the john in your costume!

Spiderman’s appeal as one of the most popular superheroes in the world is down to the everyman character on which he is based. It’s hardly surprising therefore that so many of us want to appear to be a bit of a Spidey superhero now and then – and what better time than Halloween!
