Spider-Man, the webslinging Marvel comics superhero, has one of the most definitive designs in all of comics, as created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. But where did the design come from? Where does Jack Kirby enter the picture? And how does the Spider-Man costume hold up compared to its comics peers? Throughout the world of superheroes, the Spider Man costume has become one of the most iconic costumes worn by superheroes throughout the evolution of the medium.
Still, the Spiderman costume has undergone a subtle evolution through the years, but now and then, throughout the history of Spiderman, the Spider-Man suit has explained so much about what we love about Peter Parker, Miles Morales, Ben Reilly, and everyone else outside and into the Spider-Verse who’s worn the webs. And from every trailer, clip, and scene we’ve seen so far, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is blowing open the doors for a 2018 Spider-Man movie, introducing the world to dozens of web-slinging superheroes, but as our costume breakdown will explain, from its convoluted origin to its starring role in the Spiderverse movie, when it comes to the evolution of Spider-Man’s costume, your friendly neighborhood hero is the height of fashion.
