Over the years, Spider-Man has donned a number of iconic costumes from his classic red and blue digs to the black suit to the Iron Spider – and we haven’t even spoken about the ones in video games such as Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Now, he’s about to put on a brand new suit and it’s quite a departure from his traditional look.
This vibrant new look designed by Dustin Weaver swaps out the iconic red and blue for a grey and navy number with orange accents. The design, according to the designer, is meant to be a hi-tech and futuristic take on the web-slinger’s suit. This is especially seen in the suit’s face mask where it replicates the look of a robot with a circular knob-like addition to the side of the face.
“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,” said Weaver. “I can’t wait to see Patrick Gleason really bring it to life!”
The mysterious new suit will feature on the covers of The Amazing Spider-Man #62 and The Amazing Spider-Man #63 comics. Marvel assures that it is not a look that will last years and years as the design comes with some in-story justifications. That said, it won’t take long until Spidey is back in his normal suit as he usually does after one or two takes.
