They're both great suits. But I prefer this suit more due to the larger eyes.

This is still THE one, though.

I hate this costume, the pading the mean looking eyes, the raised webbing. Just didnt look like Spidey to me he looked to big and pist off.

I'll give it this :
The outline of the red is spot on to about every artist that has drawn Spidey.
Everything to it is about comic accurate.
At its time, the suit itself was revolutionary and probably inspired a lot of other cinematic superhero costumes.

What I don't like :
Raised, thick, SILVER webbing. (Too busy/distracting)
Lens shape. (I don't think it was emulating any artists' approach on his lenses)
(this is a real nitpick) The webbing at the center of the mask don't make a circle like they do in most comics.

As you can see, I'm just trying to see how it vibes off the suit in the comics.
New TASM2 suit kicks major butt. Period.

While I didn't exactly hate the first ASM suit, I do think this one is the best love action suit I've ever seen and can't imagine how they'd be able to ever top it.

I for one don't think that the Raimi costume was that bad. In fact, that pic up there makes it look really cool imo. I do prefer this new costume though.

I will always have a certain level of love towards the Raimi movies. Why? Because Spider-Man 1 will always be the first time I saw Spider-Man on the big screen which I had wanted so bad since seeing the 90's animated series. It's not perfect, but it is damn enjoyable.

Nobody ever disliked the costume until the reboot was announced

The Raimi suit was absolutely beautiful and still amongst the best of the best adapted superhero costumes to date in my view.

I really can't understand how this is being attacked the way it is. Baffling.

Agreed.

There are differences here and there, but all the suits undeniably look like Spider-Man, and I don't dislike any of them.

Well that's easy. First of all the silver thick webbing hurts the eyes, looking upon it. Then the eye lenses design is a bit uninspired and dull being too angular with no curvature.

Seeing the red part on the torso, it is easy to notice how much wider it is, instead of being thinner like the ASM and the new one which looks a lot better and emphasizes the agile nature of Spider-man. The belt also suffers from the fact that it is a bit higher than it should and makes him look bulky.

Maybe it was just Tobey's short and buffed body though that gave this impression. Certainly though the new suit is more comic accurate and prettier than Raimi's as far as design aesthetics are concerned.

The lenses and webbing are awful. Couple that with the fact they put the suit on a pudgy manlet and it's quite easy to see why it's being attacked.

I love the Raimi suit. I still think it's beautiful. Though I do much prefer TASM2's eyes. Looking at the old Raimi suit I do notice the eye shape being off in retrospect. But it's still a beautiful suit, I don't get the hate some people have for it.

Yeah, pretty much. I see people saying that TASM's suit was perfect and anything else is a downgrade. I don't get it myself, but that's what they want.

I don't mind the eyes on the Raimi suit, I actually like Spidey when he looks less friendly and more dangerous. That's why I like Dell'otto's art so much.

I love Dell'Otto's work. I currently have an Avengers group pic of his as my desktop background (the one with Wolverine, Spider-man and a couple of other Avengers facing off against Wonder Man). I really love Secret War with his art.

1) ASM2 (judged by the set pics)

2) Tie between ASM and Raimi's. Raimi's is more faithful in design which I prefer over the design of ASM's, while ASM's suit has much better colors, build and abscence of those thick silver raised webbings.

It's insane the people going out of their way to attack the raimi suit when it's obvious the backlash the 1st TASM suit got the makers decided to go back towards the raimi look.

Can we at least agree at this point that TASM 1 suit was indeed pretty terrible?

Disagree. The only problems were the lack of belt, added leg stripes and how they designed the boots and gloves, otherwise it was an awesome looking suit.

Not really. Though most people do prefer the new suit, a few people do genuinely prefer the TASM suit. There's nothing wrong with that.

Well if we are comparing suits i just can't see what the benefits of the first TASM have over the Raimi suit? The suit to me was just a blatant attempt to be as different from the raimi suit for the sake of it.

Since it seems like the new TASM is the raimi suit with a few tweaks here and there i think it's obvious that the raimi design had some good merits.

INSANE!

The whole point of the TASM suit was to be a rough draft. Quickly and somewhat sloppily thrown together, but still looking like Spider-Man. I'd say it succeeded.

I think too many people were expecting him to come right out of the gate with a fully realized suit like what was done in Raimi's version.

I felt TASM was supposed to be kinda like Spider-Man with a learners plate. The costume reflected that. In the sequel I suppose he has grown to be an icon for New Yorkers, so the costume is more iconic as well

Maybe that wasn't planned out beforehand and they updated it the way they did because of the criticism, but it doesn't mean that it can't tie nicely into the themes of the movies

That's the eyes at their best, and how they mostly look in comics, mean looking

Yes! Not sure if planned, but now that we have a new and awesome suit, it makes TASM suit FEEL that it was a starter suit.

And right, could still tie nicely.

Eyes from Raimi's suit weren't its problems.

The problems with the suit are the exaggerated silver raised webbing, and... God, my most hatred element from the whole Raimi saga: THE ****ING MUSCLE SUIT.

It looks awful in Tobey, I mean, look:
Quote:
It's incredibly stupid for someone to think that Tobey Maguire could fill the suit as it looked in the films. Also, friggin Tobey Maguire face ugh

Skinny Spidey is the best Spidey. That's why TASM 2 is the best Spidey suit to date. It's an evolution of both TASM and Raimi's suit, fixing every single problem they had.
