Yes, Dear Reader, there is a new Spider-Man costume on the way…

Peter Parker may have hit the Big Time, but that hasn’t stopped new villains from terrorizing Manhattan. What kind of foe would prompt Spider-Man to suit up in this high-powered costume?

The new costume debuts in Amazing Spider-Man #656 from Dan Slott and Marcos Martin.

Where is Humberto Ramos!?

  1. That costume is pretty ugly, I must say… it looks like tights with holes in them pulled over chain mail… where’s his +2 Mace?

  2. Since the review by Stephen of the perfect jumping on point, I finally grabbed a copy of Spidey, for the first time in my life. I’ve never been into spidey, and I just bother reading it from what I’ve seen and heard from friends… so I took the chance, and I am really enjoying it. Along with the new spider-girl, I am enjoying these. Thanks Stephen

  3. Why does he need this new suit? Why not just go back to the Iron Spider armor? Couldn’t the Stark Spider-suit do pretty much everything?

  4. They said that with Big Time, it will be Dan Slott writing and three artists rotating story arcs. It was going to be Humberto Ramos, Marcos Martin, and Steve Casselli (probably spelled that wrong). So we’ll get more of that fantastic Humberto Ramos spiderman soon enough. Been loving the changes, but not a fan of the armor. I will say though based on Slott’s past spidey work, I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

  5. What happened to his crotch? Did he lose his genitals? Those yellow lines shouldn’t be so straight over his privates!

      • Those two lines down his scrotum are like the landing-strip pattern women get when they wax their privates — the fact that they go directly to his butt makes it look like a treasure-trail for anal sex! :eek:

    ah, I remember when the Matrix came out and everything pop culture homaged the Matrix… I think it’s tron time now, no?

  7. We all know this is a temporary thing. The man’s gone damn near 70 years without a serious, lasting costume change, and that’s not ending with #656; I can all but guarantee it.
    That in mind, the new armored look has me intrigued. Why has it come about? I can’t wait to find out more.

  8. Ha! My first thought was Spider-Man/Mysterio. The highlights? Reflections? whatever, they looked like the Mysterio gas swirly thingies.

  9. If memory serves me the last time spidey changed costumes simply to tackle one enemy it was his Electro costume. Hopefully this one lasts longer than that one did.
