The Spider-Man suit is a suit that Peter Parker wears when fighting crime as Spider-Man.

History

Spider-Man

Wrestling suit

Shortly after gaining his spider like superpowers, (due to being bitten by a genetically altered "super" spider), Peter originally wore a wrestling suit in order to gain money to buy a car to impress his childhood crush, Mary Jane Watson. The wrestling suit was seen with a red balaclava, red shirt with a black spider on the front and back, blue pants and red shoes along with red and white gloves.

After the death of his wise uncle, Ben Parker and graduating from high school, Peter decided to use his powers to fight crime, he abandoned his wrestling suit and currently wears a skin tight red and blue suit which was based on a arachnid; it had a silver raised web pattern on the red portions of the suit starting from the mask, eye lenses on the mask and two spiders on the front and back both in different designs.

During his battle with the Green Goblin, the suit was heavily damaged due to crashing through an abandoned building. After the death of the Green Goblin, Peter then made spare Spider-Man suits and continued fighting crime as Spider-Man.

Spider-Man 2

Two years later, Peter Parker's Spider-Man suit has changed differently, the spiders on the front and back were in more different designs, the red portions of the suit was more lighter and the blue portions of the suit were more darker. The web pattern was still in silver but more brighter.

Due to him struggling to balance his double life as a college student and as a superhero, Peter began to lose his spider powers due to an emotional breakdown and he decided to give up being Spider-Man. He tosses his Spider-Man suit in a trash bin and walks away. Days later, a garbage man discovers the discarded suit and brings it to the Daily Bugle where J Jonah Jameson kept it on a wall (he also temporarily wore the suit, in a deleted scene in Spider-Man 2.1).

Due to the shock that Dr. Octopus took Mary Jane hostage in an attempt to lure Spider-Man into a trap, Peter's powers fully return and he dons his suit again by stealing it from the Bugle and leaving a note on a web on the wall where his suit was. During to his battle with Doctor Octopus on a train and in his lair, the suit was once again damaged but after the death of Doctor Octopus and the successful rescue of Mary Jane, Peter discarded his damaged suit and wore one of his spare suits.

Spider-Man 3

Six months later, the Spider-Man suit looks the same as the one in the previous film as Peter continues using it to fight crime as the superhero Spider-Man while the people of New York now likes Spider-Man, especially the police and fire department.

While on a date with his now girlfriend Mary Jane Watson, a meteor crashes down with a black like goo, crawling out of it. It attaches itself to Peter's ID tag on his motorbike and then later bonds with him while he was in bed. The symbiote changes his suit from red and blue to full black and has enhanced his powers, but it also slowly started to make him arrogant and aggressive. When Peter finds out after the symbiote made him hit Mary Jane, he got rid of it by using a bell chime to weaken the symbiote.

After rejecting the black symbiotic suit, Peter went back to his original Spider-Man suit and went off on an attempt to save Mary Jane who was being held hostage by Eddie Brock (who has bonded to the symbiote to become Venom) and Sandman. After a long brutal battle following the deaths of the symbiote, Brock and his best friend Harry Osborn, the Spider-Man suit was once again damaged but was replaced by another spare suit

Designs

  • The suit is his classic suit but with a few changes; Peter wears a form-fitting spandex bodysuit, which from the waist down is blue, except for mid-calf boots with a raised silver web pattern on a dark red background. From the waist up, the fabric is a dark red-and-silver web pattern, except for his back, sides, and insides of his upper arms, which are dark blue. There is a larger dark red spider outline on his back, and a smaller black spider emblem on his chest; the spider emblem on the chest changes in Spider-Man 2 and Spider-Man 3. The mask has white one-way mirror type lenses rimmed with black. In Spider-Man 3, Peter temporarily dons the Venom Symbiote which is a black suit with a similar design to his classic suit.

Trivia

  • In the Sam Raimi trilogy movies, all of the suits were made by Peter Parker himself.
  • In the battle scenes where the suit got torn and damaged, the mask was ripped as well, but in Spider-Man 2, the mask did not get ripped, making Spider-Man 2 the only movie not to have the mask ripped.
