As the premiere of the new wall-crawling, web-slinging spectacular Spider-Man: Homecoming is nearing upon us soon in cinemas, it has come to our spidey sense to relive the legendary masked superhero and the various suits he has donned throughout the years in the comics and games alike. So, here are the 8 marvellous suits of the spectacular Spider-Man.
1. Superior Spider-Man
After the eventual swap of bodies between Doc Ock and Peter Parker which results in the death of Parker in Octavious’s body, leaving Octavious as the new Spider-Man, thus making a few altercations in designing his very own suit as a newborn web-slinger in proving himself to be a better hero than Peter Parker. Octavious’s Spidey suit makes changes from the original red and blue theme to red and black with a larger spider logo and enhanced lenses as well as attaching four mechanical spider arms to the back, marking the resemblance to Doc Ock.
2. Spider-Man 2099
Set in the futuristic and alternate universe of Spider-Man, tells the tale of Miguel O’Hara who eventually dons the alter ego of the web-slinger after an experiment of altering his DNA and genetics to be part of spider’s DNA. The suit is made of Unstable Molecule Fabric, making it invulnerable to damage and tears.
3. Spider-Armour MK III
Serves as an enhanced battle armour against The Sinister Six, the suit has tremendous customisation and enhancement needed to counter the members of Sinister Six with build-in communication-link to The Avengers, enhanced lenses to detect Mysterio’s illusions and holograms, jet boots that aids in flying, and enhanced durability to even counter Electro’s static and Rhino’s force.
4. Symbiote Spidey
First discovered during the events of Secret Wars, it was brought back to Earth by Peter Parker due to its incredible enhancement in strength, speed and agility. A black suit garnered by fans, the stealth costume eventually fades away to another host after being rejected by Peter Parker thus creating the iconic Spider-Man’s friend and foe, Venom.
5. Scarlet Spider
There are many variations of Scarlet Spider, with the first as Ben Reilly who is a clone of the original Spider-Man featuring his very own suit with blue hoodie, an ex-FBI turned villain named Joseph Wade with a silver cyber suit with unusual powers, a team of Scarlet Spiders with Stark’s Iron Spider armour and lastly, Kaine Parker, the first failed cloning created by Jackal that results in mutation who initially was a villain and becoming the Scarlet Spider eventually after having healed from the mutation.
