Superior Spider-Man: New Costume Incoming!

Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #2
Scarlet Spider #20
Superior Spider-Man #15

So...looks like Dock Ock is giving himself an upgrade to his outfit.

Personally, I think it looks pretty awesome. It might resemble Scarlet Spider's costume a bit, but I like it overall. I also love his new arms. It really acts as a nice hybrid between Doctor Octopus and Spider-Man...I just wish it wasn't drawn by Ramos.

What do you guys think?

@jaken7: this looks cool. Thanks, I might have to check this out.

Darn you for making me want to spend more (obscene) amounts of money on comics!

The costume is cool but still not a fan of Slott.

I'm a fan of this. Might as well enjoy it while it lasts.

Kaine going up against Ock should be interesting....if I remember right this will be the first time that they've met since Kaine killed him

also there's an interview with Yost on Marvel.com that hints that Ben Reilly is coming back in Scarlet Spider #21

Definitely liking the new costume. The back legs remind me of the Iron Spider costume. I wonder how the new web gauntlets are gonna work though since they look completely different from Pete's regular ones

I never got why Doc Ock didn't start using the Iron Spider legs instantly.

The new arms look obscenely cool. Maybe Kaine will take them once he kills Otto again?

Haha! Sorry about that. It was unintentional, but I do know your pain...

Alex Ross designed one of the greatest Spidey costumes ever.

I still wish Raimi would have used it in his film. I love every time they bring something inspired by the design into comics.

#15 Posted by Extremis (3350 posts) - - Show Bio

@jaken7: so do we know what's going on with his suit there? (Besides it being Doc Ock - esque)

#16 Edited by JakeN7 (12645 posts) - - Show Bio

@extremis: Nope, solicits just mention that he's on the hunt for Hobgoblin.

I do remember Slott saying in an interview that Spidey-Ock is going to have another change in status-quo, and that there will be a new costume to reflect that. Guess this is it!

The design of the feet kinda makes it look like he's wearing red flats.

Sure did. Ross is the man!

Maybe the pattern and tie-in with Kaine and the Jackal hint that Ben Reiley is under the mask??

Looks pretty cool. I kinda wish they kept the goggle-eye look from Ross' original design though - as a visual callback to his Ock outfit.

I cannot agree more. This design is just PERFECT!!! Fresh and new, but still keeps the feel of the classic costume. Also since his suit was originally red and black it just brings things back to basics. Hmm, I just realized something. Miles Morales' costume is based on Alex Ross'!!!

I love the costume, hate the man behind the mask.

If only peter was in that suit

#25 Edited by JonSmith (3996 posts) - - Show Bio

I liked this suit and the idea (Peter without the morals, almost super villain level) behind it better when it popped up in a What if comic and Peter kept his sense of humor!

... Which admittedly, isn't on display here, but you get the idea!

Actually, come to think of it, this particular What if in retrospect seems to be 'Superior Spider-man' done right.

Peter IS actually Superior to his previous self, his morals are significantly lower, he's not acting necessarily like the 'Friendly' Spider-man we know, but he's kept his sense of humor, there's a good reason behind it beyond 'BRAIN SWITCH WITH DOC OCK'.

If they had just brought this into canon, updated it a little so it makes sense in the 616 timeline, and made it a coming home story, with Peter coming back to New York in his new persona and once again acting in the public light as Spider-Man, it could have been really cool.

Yeah, the feet kind of remind me of the suit from the Amazing Spider-Man film

Well...this is from the game, but still.

@veshark: Your right, I also liked the goggle-eye design looked very ock-like

Am I the inly one not digging the new costume? I mean I like the Alex Ross one but something about this one I just don't like. Too bad, I'm gonna miss the old Superior Spider-man costume.

I cannot wait for Scarlet Spider #20 to come out #TeamKaine

#33 Posted by muhabba (301 posts) - - Show Bio

First they stole the idea of Superior Spider-Man from Mega Mind and now their stealing the Alex Ross costume? (sorry, accitdently trolled a diffrent thread other than a spider-man thread earlier and so I had to come here to troll a spider-man thread otherwise my personal balance would be off)

#35 Posted by Mattferrar (72 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I had an action figure just like that when I was younger.

Since when did Kaine have spider-sense?

#39 Posted by angelalfonso (1046 posts) - - Show Bio

@abnormalal: since always..... but he lost it during spider island, but now that he accepted the other he might get it back soon
