20WANT: ORIGINAL STEVE DITKO (AND JACK KIRBY) WEBBED SUIT

When Steve Ditko was tasked with designing Spider-Man for Stan Lee, he turned his sights to the costume, which was meticulously designed with character elements in mind. No heavy hand or footwear (because the spider powers gave him the ability to stick), a covered face (because he was a kid),

and webbed armpits.

John Romita Sr. changed the look in 1966, which gave us the more common look for Spidey without the webbed accessories. Though the webs don’t seem to have purpose to the physical abilities of Spidey as ultimately established, it would be amazing to see more nods to the character’s original creator.
