Bringing this back from the dead. While I prefer the old suit in every regard, I do think that the TASM costume is serviceable, so I wouldn't mind seeing it for the remainder of the trilogy, or however many movies it ends up being.

Loved the Raimi costume though, especially the spider on the back.

I have a question about Spidey's costume, and this seems like the most relevant place to ask it. Did Steve Ditko or Jack Kirby design the costume?

Edit: What confuses me is that Lee went to Kirby first, saw his six-or-so-pages, and decided he didn't like Kirby's direction. Then he went to Ditko. But they still used Kirby's cover for AF#15. I don't know if Kirby drew the cover before or after Stan approached Ditko, or if the costume Spider-Man had in Kirby's pages is the classic Spidey suit. Does that make sense?

Ditko designed the suit we all know and love.

Kirby's Spider-Man design is god awful.

I think they took some stuff from this as inspiration for other suits, like the 2211 one

Imagine the whatever Spider-Man motion comics (Kirby's work) by Grantray-Lawrence studio instead of them making a full cartoon

ASM's suit photograps rather well. But from a design standpoint, it's pointlessly messy. An image of the arrogance of the costume designer thinking she could better the classic design. She couldn't, if silver shoes were a part of her brilliant ideas.

Raimi's costume remains the best Superhero costume ever put to screen.

I like the new suit more TBH. I don't mind the strip down the legs, and I find the mix of red and blue in the gloves to be really neat. I'm just not a huge fan of the sometime yellowish looking eyes. Raimi also had a really good suit, but I don't like the "3D" webbing.

The only minus points I give the TASM suit, is that it didn't stick with the classic design. Other than that, I prefer it over the Raimi suit. Textures, materials, spider designs, webs, all of it.

Wow. That is just atrocious. This is what I often envisioned DC's Spider-Man would look like.

I say the Andrew Garfield suit, no contest! I loved the original suit, but the new one surpassed it in every way in my opinion, and I was disappointed to hear that they are changing it for the sequel.

...Kay. When I first looked at this pic, it immediately flashed to me as a fake. The details like the hand, goggles and gun are simply not Kirby's. And with like 20 seconds worth of research, it was confirmed.

I recently saw images from the "Amazing" video game and they actually managed to make the suit look worse; they added POUCHES!

Good thing is they are optional. You can select a outfit in the game that doesn't have the belt.

We should've known it was a fake; look at the body. Those are adult proportions. I'm sure Kirby knew going in that the character was being introduced as a teenager.

Not that I'll ever experience this first hand 'cause I'll never play it.
