He may be Marvel’s most recognizable character by far, but Spider-Man’s no slouch when it comes to costume changes. From the classic design by Steve Ditko to the black-and-white attire of the 80s and the upcoming redesign in the pages of Ultimate Comics, Spider-Man has a full closet.

  1. Ohhhh, wait. Are we redesigning the “I’m 25 and I’ve got a pretty good job and hang at the Baxter Building” Peter, or the “I’m a teen struggling to get by working at the mall and maybe dead” Peter? Or both?

  2. Well, I for one am designing the “hanging-out-with-Ravi-Shankar phase” Peter or the “carbohydrate, sequined-jumpsuit, young-girls-in-white-cotton-panties, waking-up-in-a-pool-of-your-own-vomit, bloated-purple-dead-on-a-toilet phase” Peter…Okay, party. Bonus.

  3. YES! I might actually enter something this time. At any rate, this is going to be a great contest.

  5. Does he really need another costume design???
    Okay, I’m gonna take a shot at this… But we could we get a P:R Round Table about his top 10 best costumes? or at least top 5? How many costumes has he had anyway?

  6. Dammit, now I have to add this to my to do list. It’s a bit intimidating cos nothing can really compare to the original costume, but he has had like 8 costumes over the past year right.

    I’ll see what I can rig up.

  8. Spidey’s costume is a very hard one to redesgn. Mostly because it’s iconic. But also because most of the alternate costumes that have come out for him weren’t bad. Symbiote, Ben Reily, Iron Spider, the black and Green Stealth suit he jut had, Ultimate Spidey 2, etc. They all were pretty decent. So coming up with something new and original that fits is kinda daunting. I will try though.

  9. @Dedpool: I totally agree. Almost all the redesign by Marvel is pretty decent and iconic that it is really tough to come out with something new. Really wanna see what everyone will come out with. haha

  11. Like @Lee Chen Fang said; all his costumes have been pretty iconic… but there’s always one constant; the eyes. I think the most original redesigns will be those which change the eyes. Anything else, and it’s all been done before.

    Some deviantART members have made some really cool changes to the spidey-eyes, namely Spidermangeek (http://spidermangeek.deviantart.com/) and Weidel (http://www.oo-de-lally.com/). Dunno if they follow PR, but I sure hope they catch wind of the “Webhead 2.0″ contest.
