Top 10 Spider-Man Costumes

The best superheroes need the best costumes. Welcome to Watchmojo.com and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 Spider-Man costumes.

For this list, we’ve chosen costumes that drew our admiration in one way or another. Though the regular red and blue suit has remained the staple, there have been dozens of spin-off costumes that can compete for the best. Enjoy the wall crawling superhero fashion show.

#10: Spider-Man Noir


In the alternate “Noir” comic book universe, Spider-Man has an all-black arsenal of equipment. As this reality takes place during the great depression and borrows from the noir film style, Spidey wears a fedora, trench-coat and carries a gun. He also sports protective goggles while patrolling the streets of a dark and dusty world reminiscent of Alan Moore’s Watchmen. This may be the most unique costume Spider-Man has ever worn, as it bears almost no resemblance to the original.

#9: Miles Morales’ Ultimate Spider-Man


It’s the new suit for the new generation of Spider-Man. Miles Morales, an African-American teen started appearing Marvel’s Ultimate Universe in 2011. He shared the title with Peter Parker for a time, until Parker was killed in a brutal fight against Normal Osborn and The Six. Miles’ costume is very much a omage to his heritage as well as being a modern interpretation to the classic Spider-Man look. The blue was replaced with black, and the design got an entire revamping, becoming one of the more distinct costumes created in recent years.

#8: Spider-Armor MKI


This Spider-Armor appeared only once in the comics, but its unique aesthetic cemented its status. Worn in 1993’s “Web of Spider-Man #100,” the armor was used to fight the New Enforcers villain team. Being a bulletproof silver-plated suit, it was used to full effect before dissolving in acid and never being replicated. Along with the canonical comics, the suit has appeared in Spider-Man: The Animated Series and a handful of video games.

#7: The Human Spider


In Sam Raimi’s rendition of the Spider-Man origin story, Peter Parker’s first costume is necessitated by a wrestling match. After harnessing his powers, Peter enters a wrestling competition to win money for a car. Needing a costume, he wears a simple sweatshirt/pants combo that is the stylistic precursor to the classic suit. The shirt is red with a spider emblazoned on the chest, the sweatpants are blue, and Peter calls himself “The Human Spider”. Definitely a poor-man’s version of the suit, we can’t help but love this wonderfully terrible attempt to look cool.

#6: Iron Spider Armor


Developed by Tony Stark himself, the Iron Spider armor resembles Iron Man’s suit in many ways. Worn by Spider-Man in the Civil War comic series, the red and gold costume contains many of the technological advancements that Iron Man possesses. Along with sensory pads, powerful optic lenses, and bulletproof plating, the armor also features giant mechanical arms that aid with movement and manipulation. Being a mashup of two superhero icons, the Iron Spider costume is one of the coolest in the Marvel world.

#5: Classic Suit


This is the suit that Spider-Man wore in his first ever issue. In a time where superheroes wore plain outfits or capes, Spidey’s costume blew everything else out of the water. Steve Ditko’s design was flashy, sleek, and colorful, and Spider-Man’s popularity had as much to do with the suit as it did the storyline. More to its favor, the costume has barely changed over the 50-plus years of existence, translating well to every other medium Spider-Man appears in. The only major difference being the webbing that adorned the armpits of the original costume.

#4: Spider-Man 2099


In the year 2099, Miguel O’Hara is the new Spider-Man, and his costume is appropriately futuristic. This comic book spinoff featured Spidey in a radically different blue and red costume with a demonic motif. A red skull-like insignia is plastered on the mask and chest, while sharp tendrils of red adorn the arms and culminate in elbow spines. Also, for the first time in the comics, Spider-Man wears a cape, which resembles a tattered spider’s web. Along with looking incredibly cool, the costume is nearly indestructible, as it was made with the same molecular composition as the Fantastic Four suits.

#3: Amazing Spider-Man 2 Costume


The suit worn in the first Amazing Spider-Man was respectable, but the one in the sequel is definitely better. The designers enlarged the eyes, raised the web pattern, and simplified the overall look to resemble the costume from the Ultimate Spider-Man series. The live-action movie did what the comics and TV show couldn’t, as the three dimensional suit complemented the medium perfectly.

#2: Symbiote Suit


As per the comic and film storyline, an alien parasite falls to Earth and bonds with Spider-Man for a time, before joining with Eddie Brock to become the villain Venom. Spidey’s black symbiote costume, in stark contrast with the original, is all black save for the eyes and emblem; giving him a much more menacing look. It was extremely popular among readers, as a new character—the aforementioned Venom—was created solely based on its design. Spider-Man has donned the costume in all types of media, and we can only hope that Spider-Man 3 didn’t ruin Spider-Man’s dark side permanently.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions:

Tron Spider-Man

Scarlet Spider (Ben Reilly)

Future Foundation Suit

#1: Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man Suit


When Spider-Man made his big screen debut in 2002, people were understandably amazed with his appearance. This has everything to do with the suit, which is possibly the greatest super-suit ever made for the big screen. It adhered to the classic look, while adding newer stylistic elements to appropriate the generation. Probably the most distinct departure from the original look is the raised web pattern with a silver hue. Sam Raimi’s trilogy is filled with outstanding costumes, as the high level of design did not waver in the sequels.
