A superhero needs a super suit. And if that superhero is the most popular one, it ought to have multiple suits. Since his debut in 1964, Spider-Man has been in several storylines, collaborating with the smartest marvel characters and wearing different versions of his costumes. So, we are going to rank 10 of the best spider-man suits that he created or collaborated with his friends to do so.
10 Best Spider-Man Suits of All-Time!
Spider-Man is both brilliant and has many brilliant friends that helped him create a lot of spider suits. Although they were not permanent, they did leave a trace mark to the fan’s heart. So, let’s look at some of those.
10. Spider-Man Noir Suit
During the great depression in the 1930s, Spider-Man Noir came into existence in an alternate Noir reality. The noir suit was a black & white costume made by Peter Parker based on his uncle Ben’s world war I airman uniform. He also armed with a revolver and became the vigilante Spider-Man.
The coolest part of this suit is that he wears a fedora, a trench coat, and a hat. He also wears protective goggles to keep his eyes sharp. It is one of the few versions of the webhead who has an organic web shooter and possesses every ability as the original.
The Noir Suit is the most unique costume that Spidy has ever worn and it bears nothing common to the original one.
The Spider-Armor hasn’t been featured in too many comics, but it did become a fan favorite very quickly. It first appeared in the Web of Spider-Man issue #100.
Spider-Armor was created when the new enforcers attacked New York with high caliber firearms. So, Peter Parker created an armor composed of a pseudo metallic compound that he developed at Empire State University.
The suit slowed him down and made his less agile but, allowed him to be bulletproof during battles. Despite its fewer appearance in comics, it did feature in various cartoons and numerous video games.
8. Ultimate Spider-Man Suit (Miles Morales)
The ultimate version of Spider-Man had to have a new version of that costume it was a cool looking one. Being a 13-year-old kid, Miles Morales developed the suit all by himself almost matching the classic costume. He was also the first black superhero to took over the spider costume.
As for the suit its a more practical-looking suit in the sense that it’s basically black with a little bit of red webbing in his chest, head, and fingers. The suit also provided him the ability to enhance his venom blast ability which is definitely a welcome addition to it.
Because the suit primarily black, it gives miles that stealth edge so he can lurk in the shadows like Batman. Even with that its definitely a well-built costume with the most classic feels.
7. Iron Spider Armor
During the events of Civil War #1, Peter Parker was given a special gift by his good friend Tony Stark. It was meant to enhance his powers with a technological touch, thus comes the Iron Spider Armor.
There are two things that stand out when looking at this costume, the yellow and red color scheme, and the metallic arms it has life an actual spider. The shiny metallic look it had was beyond anything fans had ever seen and everybody loved it.
The fun part is this suit was worn by Mary Jane Watson as well when Peter and Tony were fighting against the supervillain Regent.
6. Future Foundation Suit
This suit was given to Peter Parker by the Future Foundation and created by Mr. Fantastic. It’s the suit that Spiderman wore during his time with Fantastic Four where he took over the Human Torch’s place after he was suspected dead.
The Future Foundation Costume is made of unstable molecules. This makes it more durable, prevents it from getting dirty, and can wearer change its color scheme and appearance with just a simple thought. Which is pretty powerful for an everyday superhero.
With the help of this suit, the friendly neighborhood was able to travel through rifts, pass the space-time continuum, and even time travel to distant future within the microverse. Overall, it was a fun journey with a cool looking suit.
5. Spider-Man 2099 Suit
Miguel O’Hara, the Spider-Man of 2099 had two different versions of the costume. His first suit was pretty similar to the classic suit but had a lot more blue and a skull-like spider in it. It was made with the unstable molecule and featured a cape-like web material called light byte.
The second version of the suit glows red and can also change color. This suit also made of the same molecule and bolded with Kevlar to increase durability and had a better-integrated light byte material to improve his gliding.
This suit also has a longer range of attack options and an onboard sensor for complete vicinity readings. And of course, it’s 2099, so the one had boot jet and some handy explosives coming from his wrists.
4. Stealth Suit
While fighting the Hobgoblin, Peter discovered that he had no protection what so ever against the villain’s sonic screams. After being defeated by the Hobgoblin, he returned to Horizon’s lab and decided to create a new defensive suit, therefore entered the stealth suit.
This suit is constructed with ‘Omni-Harmonic Mesh’ and composed of unstable molecules, which allows it to eliminate all input and output of sound as well as heal itself if damaged. The molecules also allow it camouflage ability to hide in plain sight.
The stealth suit did have a few drawbacks but all in all this bigtime costume has been used by Spiderman multiple times and it continues to be one of the more reliable costumes in his wardrobe.
3. Scarlet Spider Suit (Original)
Making its way on the top 3 is the Scarlet Spider Hoody Costume. Ben Riley, the clone of Peter Parker. It was a complete red looking suit with a pouch on his ankles.
The Scarlet Spider was meant to be somewhat ridiculous as it was made by Riley out of a hoody. It was a subtle way to communicate with the readers that character’s outcast status. Even though it wasn’t meant to a hit, the suit and the character gained a huge following among Spider-Man fans.
Apart from the hoody, the eyes on the suit look too cool. The shape of his eyes look sharp and dynamic and not so rounded all the time. Although the scarlet suit is very much 90’s and not meant to be popular, it’s still one of my all-time favorites.
2. Symbiote Suit
While introducing for the first time in The Amazing Spider-Man #252, fans literally went crazy over the black suit spider-man. The wave is created in 1984, is still on, and to date it one of the most popular Spider-Man suits in comics.
Originally it was just meant to change the costume color for the web-spinning hero. But as we all know everybody loved the black and white version. Eventually, it was given a backstory where it was revealed that it was actually a living symbiote named Venom.
The suit adopted with Spidy’s powers, immune to his detections, and even had its own pocket dimensions in which he could store any amount of things in his pocket. Later the symbiote found his long-time accomplice Eddie Brock and received an even greater power bump.
1. Classic Suit
Was there any surprise? After being introduced in 1962, this costume has been the most amazing and most popular spiderman suit ever existed. This is the iconic suit that made the web-slinger who he is and made him the fan-favorite.
The red and blue suit which was depute in the original Fantastic Four #15 had a web net around his armpit but it was removed in the late ’70s. Over the years the costume did get some minor tweaks and upgrades, but the original theme remained the same.
Although the friendly neighborhood did appear in several other costumes and collaborated with many superheroes, this iconic suit has been his most favorite in his drove.
This was just my list of favorite spider-man suits, although most people like the black suit spider-man more than the classic, I guess there is nothing compared to the original one. So, what do you think of this list? What is your favorite Spider-Man costume?
