Earlier today, fans were treated to a look at what may be the new costume for Spider-Man at Marvel.Com. What new costume, you ask? After the “Other” event wraps up, Marvel has promised a new costume for Spider-Man, though the shocking departure, in color and design, of this costume from previous costumes does raise some questions as to if these are Parker’s new duds. Then again, let’s not forget when he wore an all black costume, so anything’s game right now. Marvel Editor in Chief Joe Quesada has dubbed this look the “Iron Spidey” look, and the Marvel.Com page reads:
“Every “gift” has its cost, and this new look for Spidey will signal the beginnings of change, especially as it comes on the eve of the upcoming Civil War. Spider-Man has developed a growing trust and friendship with Iron Man, but how much in debt is Peter’s loyalty to Tony Stark going to cost him in the long run? If the color scheme is any indication, well… Joe Quesada says, “I imagined Tony presenting Peter with the new suit and Peter putting it on and saying that it looks great but that his colors are red and blue. Tony would simply respond, ‘My design, my colors!'””
The new costume will debut in February, though there is no confirmation that “Iron Spidey” is the new official look. Stay tuned to CBR News for more on this developing story.
