The Spider-Man Suit is a specialized suit used by Peter Parker to protect his identity as Spider-Man. Originally consisting of a red hoodie with a spider symbol, blue pants, a blue shirt, and a red mask with black goggles to help him focus his senses, the suit received a "minor upgrade" from Tony Stark for Parker to use during the Clash of the Avengers. Stark allowed Parker to keep the suit after the Avengers Civil War.
The Stark suit has many new features, such as Karen, an artificially intelligent system to aid him, a heads-up display embedded in the eye lenses, a reconnaissance drone, a parachute, and retractable wingsuit components. The suit was monitored by the Stark Industry Training Wheels Protocol, a program designed and installed into the suit by Stark to restrict certain actions, and the Baby Monitor Protocol, which tracked and recorded everything through the eye lenses.
After Spider-Man successfully apprehended Vulture, Stark offered Parker another suit if he moved into the New Avengers Facility as the newest Avenger. However, Parker turned Stark's invitation down, preferring to operate in Queens as a local hero instead. Impressed at his maturity, Stark accepted his decision and returned the second suit back to Parker, after having confiscated it earlier following the Ambush at the Staten Island Ferry.
In 2024, in an attempt to hide his identity as Spider-Man, Parker was given a stealth suit designed by S.H.I.E.L.D. that allowed him to operate under the moniker of Night Monkey while in Prague. The next day, as his Stark Suit had been destroyed and he had lost the mask to his stealth suit, Parker designed and created an upgraded Spider-Man suit on the Stark Industries Private Jet, which he used in the Battle of London to defeat Mysterio.

In 2015, Peter Parker made a homemade suit consisting of cheap red and blue clothing, particularly a blue long johns under a red sleeveless hoodie with a black spider chest emblem, red fingerless gloves with black webbing designs on them, and black goggles to fight crime in New York City. He hid this suit from his aunt in a loft above his bedroom, which came down on a rope whenever someone opened it.
When Peter Parker arrived in Berlin, Germany, Happy Hogan told him to suit up, which he did by wearing his homemade suit. However, Hogan asked him what he was wearing and redirected him to the suit Stark had left for him, and ordered him to get dressed quickly.
Peter Parker located it in another part of his hotel room and opened it, revealing the new suit and its features. Parker, speechless, put on the suit and joined Happy Hogan, who took him to Leipzig-Halle Airport.
Keeping the Suit
Afterwards, Tony Stark allowed Peter Parker to keep the suit, although he advised him not do anything he would or would not do and to remain on the ground, a tip which Parker accepted. Parker then asked when the next mission was, and Stark replied that if they needed him then someone would contact him, and appointed Happy Hogan to be their liaison.
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man
Colorful Local Crimestopper
Two months later, Peter Parker used his new suit in his daily heroics, from stopping a bicycle thief to guiding an old woman. One night, he spotted a small group of thieves attempting to rob an ATM and used his suit to fight them.
Parker returned home later that day and crawled into his room through the window, since he lost his backpack with his civilian clothes inside it. Once he went inside, his friend Ned Leeds noticed him on the ceiling; Parker tried to convince Leeds that he was not Spider-Man, but his suit and ceiling crawl rendered his denial moot.
The next night, May drove Parker and Leeds to the Toomes Residence. Despite wearing his Spider-Man suit underneath his clothes, Parker was adamant to be himself. They greeted Toomes and noticed that Michelle Jones was also attending the party. However, after another taunt from Flash Thompson, Parker excused himself and donned his costume outside on the residence's roof. On the roof, Parker spotted a nearby explosion, which he proceeded to investigate.
He found Jackson Brice and Herman Schultz trying to sell a man the same weapons from the ATM theft the day before. The buyer preferred a simple gun to Brice and Schultz's enhanced weaponry; his sellers coerced him, but Spider-Man intervened and a chase ensued, using his suit in the pursuit.
He managed to find the criminal's van, but a man with armored wings appeared and grabbed him from behind, flying into the air. When Vulture flew high enough, the suit's emergency parachute activated. The parachute caught the wind and allowed Spider-Man to get off Vulture's grip.
Spider-Man crashed into the lake, got tangled in his parachute underwater, and nearly drowned. Iron Man retrieved him with a remotely controlled armor, and explained that he installed a tracker into Parker's suit, allowing Stark to observe Parker. Parker explained the situation to him, but Stark urged Parker to forget Vulture and let more experienced people handle Vulture's activity.
Peter Parker began investigating his new adversary. He told Ned Leeds about his encounter with Vulture and the power core that has been left behind during the chase. After they examined the power core, they encountered Herman Schultz and another thug looking for the missing core in school. Parker followed them during their search and planted a tracker on their bodies. Parker and Leeds began following the gang's movements and learned that they were heading to Maryland.
Since the school's decathlon team were heading to Washington, D.C. for the national tournament, Parker rejoined the team. Once the decathlon team arrived, Parker prepared to pursue Vulture's gang once more. While removing the tracker from his suit, Leeds learned that the Training Wheels Protocol monitored his suit. Eager to prove himself to Tony Stark, Parker convinced Leeds to disable the protocol before pursuing the criminals.
While in the suit, Spider-Man discovered that the suit was harboring an A.I. that introduced itself; the A.I. taught Spider-Man about the suit's full capabilities, from a heads-up display to a myriad of Web-Shooter combinations.
Spider-Man found members of Vulture's gang near an empty gas station. Using the suit's advanced function to overhear their conversation, Spider-Man learned that Vulture intended to steal confiscated technology from Damage Control storage trucks. Spider-Man went after the Damage Control truck and confronted Vulture, who was about to leave with his loot. They fought briefly and, due to Spider-Man's carelessness, resulted in Spider-Man getting trapped inside the truck.
Trapped in Damage Control's Safe House
Sometime later, Spider-Man woke up. The A.I. informed him that he was inside a Damage Control safe-house and would not be able to leave until morning. At first, he tried to force the door open to no avail. Deciding to wait it out, he learned different Web-Shooter combinations and named the A.I. Karen.
Spider-Man managed to track his friends to the Washington Monument and reached the place just as the Chitauri Energy Core exploded inside Ned Leeds backpack. Karen informed him that his friends were trapped inside the Monument elevator, which was in danger of plummeting, and Spider-Man scaled the monument as quickly as he could, locating the most optimal entry point of the monument with his suit.
His rescue attempt caught local authorities' attention. Spider-Man tried to explain the situation to them, but they threatened to shoot him if he did not leave the monument. Despite the threats, Spider-Man ignored them and broke into the monument, barely catching the elevator and its occupants — his schoolmates and Roger Harrington — with a ricochet web.
Back to New York
Students hailed Spider-Man as a hero for his elevator rescue after he returned to New York City. He learned from Karen that the suit was recording all of his activity, so he reviewed a log of the day of Brice and Schultz's arms sale; he decided to confront the customer, Aaron Davis. At Karen's suggestion, he activated the Enhanced Interrogation Protocol, which made his voice sound deeper and more menacing.
In a parking lot, Spider-Man webbed Davis's hand onto his car bonnet, but Davis poked fun at Spider-Man for using a voice filter. Flustered, Spider-Man disabled the Enhanced Interrogation Protocol and asked for Vulture's location. Davis, grateful for Spider-Man's intervention several nights earlier, informed him of another weapons deal to be made on Staten Island Ferry.
Following Aaron Davis's lead, Spider-Man sneaked into the ferry and went looking for Vulture. During his scouting, Stark called him, but Spider-Man hung up on him to focus on his targets. Spider-Man interrupted the deal and defeated Vulture's gang and Mac Gargan, but the FBI interrupted Spider-Man's ambush and proceeded to arrest everyone at the scene.
This distraction was all Vulture needed to equip his suit and began attacking Spider-Man and the FBI. While Spider-Man saved the agents from the arms dealer's attacks, Vulture freed his men and urged them to escape. Another fierce fight ensued between Vulture and Spider-Man, who used his Web-Shooters' combinations to enhance his fighting ability against the winged menace.
Eventually, Vulture's Chitauri alien weapon malfunctioned. Spider-Man tried to web the weapon up and contain its energy, only for it to short-circuit and cut the ferry in half. Spider-Man attempted to save the ferry's occupants; at his request, Karen quickly calculated the strongest points of the ship, and Spider-Man linked 98 percent of those points together. However, he had missed two percent of the points, and it was this oversight that caused Spider-Man's webs to fail. Spider-Man desperately bound both halves of the ship together, though it kept falling apart. Iron Man eventually arrived to assist in Spider-Man's rescue, sealing the ship by reforging the cutlines. After that, he took Spider-Man away to have a private talk.
Tony Stark demanded the suit back from Peter Parker after lecturing him on putting civilians in jeopardy by pursuing Vulture. Parker tearfully protested that he was nothing without the suit, but Stark dismissed Parker's protests by reminding him that he should not own the suit if it was his whole being, and sent him home with spare clothes.
Back to Basics
Pursuing Vulture once again, Peter Parker went to grab his homemade suit from beneath the school lockers. After changing hastily into his suit, Spider-Man went outside only to be ambushed by the Shocker, who subsequently knocked Spider-Man's Web-Shooters off his wrists, putting him at a disadvantage. Shocker relentlessly kept attacking Spider-Man, smashing him through school buses. Before Shocker could strike Spider-Man again, Ned used one of the Web-Shooters to distract the Shocker, and Spider-Man bound him to a school bus.
With Ned Leeds's help, Spider-Man tracked Adrian Toomes to an old warehouse. Parker questioned Toomes's criminal activity and what he was doing to his family, but Toomes simply waited to activate his Exo-Suit; once it did, he began attacking Spider-Man. Parker dodged every attack and quipped at Toomes, but later realized that Toomes sought to destroy the beams of the warehouse. The wings smashed through the last supporting beam of the warehouse, and debris collapsed upon Spider-Man. Vulture equipped his suit and left Spider-Man to die.
Beneath the rubble, Parker called for help and writhed in pain, but he noticed an image of his mask in the water and his own reflection. Remembering Stark's words, Parker finally understood what his mentor meant about separating his identity from his suit: with or without the suit, he was Spider-Man. Spider-Man regained his resolve and pushed the rubble off his back, and he continued his pursuit of Vulture.
Spider-Man managed to find Vulture, and latched onto him with a web as they flew towards the Stark Cargo Plane. Unaware of Spider-Man's presence, Vulture continued his hijacking. Without his tech suit, Spider-Man improvised his moves and dodged Vulture's relentless attacks. Their fight caused significant damage to the plane's hull. When Spider-Man realized that the plane was in danger of crashing into New York City, he used his webs and strength to force the plane to crash into the beach at Coney Island instead.
Exhausted and injured, Spider-Man removed his mask to breathe, but this caused his senses to overwhelm him and leave him open to Vulture's ambush. Despite the damage on his suit, Vulture brutally attacked Spider-Man. Holding him up with his wings, Vulture prepared to kill Spider-Man before spotting a nearby crate, which he proceeded to grab instead. Spider-Man noticed that Vulture's wings were failing and tried to save him. Vulture's wings exploded, and Toomes crashed into the ground as his suit burst into flames. Spider-Man retrieved Toomes from the blaze and webbed him to the remaining cargo, watching from atop a roller-coaster as the police arrested Vulture.
After Peter Parker apprehended Vulture and prevented the theft of valuable Avengers and Stark Industries equipment, Stark decided to induct Parker into the Avengers with a press conference and a new suit. This new suit would serve as his official Avengers outfit, which he asked Parker to wear for the conference. However, Parker declined both Avengers membership and the new suit, preferring to stand up for the commoner as Spider-Man. Stark attempted to sway Parker into joining the Avengers by observing the suit again, but Parker remained adamant in his decision. Accepting Parker's choice, Stark put the suit away.
Regaining the Suit
Back home, Peter Parker found that Tony Stark had returned his Tech Suit. Excited to resume his heroics, Parker put on the suit again, but his Aunt May found him wearing it, exclaiming in shock that her nephew is Spider-Man.
In 2018, while on a field trip to the Museum of Modern Art, Peter Parker's spider sense alerted him to a Q-Ship descending miles away above Greenwich Village. Using the distraction caused by Ned Leeds, Parker jumped through the bus's emergency exit, pulling his mask on as he rushed to the scene. Arriving at the fight between Cull Obsidian and Iron Man, Parker stopped Obsidian's hammer moments before it struck his mentor. Stark then tasked Parker with protecting Doctor Strange from Ebony Maw. When Strange was captured, Parker chased after Maw throughout New York City, until Strange was beamed up into the Q-Ship. Parker was also pulled up too into the sky.
Parker held on as best and tried to crawl up as the Q-Ship escaped into the stratosphere. However, he nearly suffocated as the ship ascended into the upper atmosphere before Stark summoned the Iron Spider Armor to form around the Spider-Man suit.
On the planet Titan, Parker used the Iron Spider Armor to assist Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Star-Lord, Drax the Destroyer, and Mantis in trying to remove the Infinity Gauntlet off of Thanos. Unfortunately, following his defeat, Parker, the armor, and suit disintegrated when Thanos activated the completed Infinity Gauntlet.
In 2023, as a result of the Blip, Parker was restored to life. His armor and suit rematerialized as well. Parker was then transported by Doctor Strange to the ruins of the New Avengers Facility to fight alongside the Avengers and their allies in the battle against alternate Thanos and his army. Parker was a key factor in keeping the Nano Gauntlet safe, until it inevitably reached Stark.
In 2024, Peter Parker donned the Iron Spider Armor and used it to defeat the Manfredi Crime Family. He then wore it during the Salvation Army's charity event at the Urban Sports & Cultural Center.
When packing for his trip to Europe, Parker decided to leave his armor and suits behind, as he didn't want to engage in super heroics. However, when he was not in his room, May Parker put his second Spider-Man suit in his suitcase. After arriving in Venice, Italy, Parker found out that she had put his suit there and put it on when he was met by "Nick Fury". He was given the glasses and met Quentin Beck.
The following morning, Parker and his group travelled through Austria with Dimitri Smerdyakov as their bus driver. After they stopped at a rest stop, Parker was met by the Seamstress who was working for Nick Fury. She gave him a black Stealth suit that had been made by S.H.I.E.L.D.. Since Fury's crew had forgotten to take his body measurements, she demanded him to take off his clothes and try the suit on to determine if it would fit, much to Parker's confusion and embarrassment. However, Brad Davis walked in on them while looking for a bathroom and took a photo of them to slander Parker.
In Prague, Czech Republic during the Carnival of Lights, Parker's Stealth Suit was well-fitting, except in the groin area and provided some discomfort. The suit helped Parker utilize his agility and dexterity when maneuvering around the open area to combat the Molten Man illusion.
Afterwards, Michelle Jones presented evidence of Beck's deception to Parker, who upon realizing the deception, asked Jones for help covering his absence, then donned his Stealth suit to travel to Berlin and meet Fury to warn him. Upon arrival, "Fury" took him to a building which is revealed to be a holographic trap by Beck, who already knew of Parker's attempt as he uncovered security footage. There, Beck brutalized Parker until leaving him for dead by a speeding train. Parker survived and made his way into a passenger car where he passed out to recover. Upon regaining consciousness, Parker found out that the Stealth suit had been taken off of him and that he was in a police cell in Broek op Langedijk, Netherlands.
After being rescued by Happy Hogan, Hogan unlocked a specialized suit foundry inside the Stark Industries Private Jet when Parker voiced his need for a suit to use against Beck. Inside, Parker found detail schematics of various Spider-Man suits from the old Homemade version to the Iron Spider to variants of suits in-between. Using the foundry, Parker designed an upgraded version of the suit Stark made for him, and fabricated in the arms integrated web-shooters and manual activation of the Taser Webs, making the amperage of which Parker increased by 25 percent. Thus allowing him control of how much shock to deliver the drones.
Unlike the previous suit Stark made him, Parker's Upgraded Suit was red and black. It lacked a drone upon the insignia or belt clasps for extra web cartridges, boasted varying weave patterns, and featured additional areas that were now colored black with interwoven striations, including the biceps, upper legs, and much of the forearms. The Web Wings also looked much sleeker than what the previous suit used, and even expanded between the legs to give better control during gliding. Unlike, Parker's previous suits, this suit had no A.I. or extra web shooter combinations, being much more minimalistic than any of his previous suits.
Parker wore this suit while fighting Mysterio and his drones in London. Fully aware of the damage the drones could bring, Parker had refortified the materials used in the suit synthesis. The Upgraded suit received various ballistic attacks from Mysterio's drone attacks, but also protected Parker from the drones' magnetic and high sonic pulse cannons, in addition to his already extraordinary durability. The second Spider-Man suit, along with Karen, had been destroyed on the Tower Bridge after the drones had destroyed the bus where his suitcase was.
Although Parker eventually repaired the Upgraded suit in time for a date with Michelle Jones in New York City. The suit was at peak efficiency within a week of returning to New York, and restocked with Web Fluid.
- Web-Shooters: The suit has Web-Shooters strapped onto the wrists that allow Spider-Man to discharge synthetic webbing for various purposes. These were the only part of the costume which Tony Stark didn't mock.
- Goggles: Due to the extremely heightened senses, Peter Parker developed a set of black goggles with adjustable lenses to see out of as Spider-Man. The lenses could widen and squint to allow him to block extra stimuli due to his highly enhanced senses making it difficult for him to focus.
- Karen: The suit has a built-in A.I. named Karen, similar to Tony Stark ’s F.R.I.D.A.Y., that informs Spider-Man on changing tactical situations and provides diagnostic reports. This feature was initially set to activate after Parker completed the Training Wheels Protocol, but Ned Leeds unlocked it with the rest of the suit's abilities. Karen records and stores data while the suit is in use through the Baby Monitor Protocol, allowing Spider-Man to access a personal database and review information he may have overlooked previously, or to research people or events he has previously encountered. Karen also provides suggestions and activates features autonomously, such as when she enabled the suit's 'Enhanced Reconnaissance Mode' when Parker needed help surveying a couple of criminals.
- Upgraded Web-Shooters: The suit came with Tony Stark's version of Parker's original Web-Shooters. The Web-Shooters allow Spider-Man to display or project holographic information, from a Spider-Signal with the motif of his mask to the tracking coordinates of his Reconnaissance Drone and Spider-Tracers. The Web-Shooters are configurable to allow Spider-Man to use up to 576 different combinations of his synthetic webbing dialed through either hand gestures or voice commands, with the suit's HUD showing the different selections. The Web-Shooters can assemble themselves onto Parker's wrists and can be worn inconspicuously by retracting the trigger mechanism.
- Web Grenade: A web configuration that holds an explosive charge at the end of it which, when detonated, releases another, more powerful web either in the form of a net or another web line.
- Taser Web: An option in the basic webbing that allows for an electric current to flow through the webbing and neutralize the target.
- Splitter Web: Spider-Man shoots several web strings that can attach to multiple targets at once.
- Rapid Fire: A series of smaller web projectiles fired at a constant, high-velocity pace to stun enemies.
- Ricochet Web: The ricochet web setting fires a strand of webbing that bounces off an initial obstacle and sticks to a target.
- Spider-Tracers: GPS trackers in the form of tiny, spider-like robots that Parker can launch from his Web-Shooters and track via his suit's systems.
- Eye Lenses: The lenses of the suit's mask are modeled after camera shutters, giving him a squinting look when they close in and provide Parker a greater depth of field and help to filter out extra stimuli. The lenses also allow Spider-Man to see in a different spectrum.
- HUD: The lenses of the suit have a built-in augmented reality display system, powered by Karen, allowing Spider-Man to analyze his surroundings, display webbing supplies, and enhanced radar signatures.
- X-Ray Vision: Parker can ask Karen to switch his visuals to a different visual spectrum, allowing him to see through several objects.
- Utility Belt: The waistline of the suit can hold up to six spare web cartridges for Spider-Man to reload his Web-Shooters.
- Communication System: After Ned Leeds deactivated the Training Wheels Protocol, the suit was revealed to have a built-in communication system, allowing him to accept cellular and video calls. Prior to this, he was only able to communicate with Iron Man's team during the Clash of the Avengers via Bluetooth speakers, not with the actual suit.
- Vacuum Seal: By pressing the emblem on the chest, Parker can expand the suit several sizes larger, allowing him to slip out of the suit easily. He can still wear undergarments under the suit because of its vacuum seal, which can also compress the suit to appear as though he is wearing nothing underneath. Once the vacuum seal compresses the suit properly, the suit's A.I. initiates and performs a diagnostics check.
- Enhanced Durability: Woven with durable fabric, Spider-Man's new suit is highly tear resistant, as seen when it received no damage after being dragged along the streets after a van, withstood the strain of Spider-Man holding the Staten Island Ferry together, and when it was unscathed by shards of shattered glass during the Rescue at the Washington Monument. In addition, the suit is waterproof, as showcased when the suit and its technological capabilities were unaffected despite being submerged in water.
- Parachute: The suit has a built-in parachute, deployed from the spider symbol on his back once Spider-Man exceeds a certain altitude. Despite its utility, the suit only comes with a single parachute and must be resupplied after its use.
- Temperature Control System: The suit also has a built-in body temperature regulator which acts like a heater during the cold or wet, or a cooler during the hotter and dryer environments as seen when the suit displays a built-in heating system to keep Spider-Man warm, powerful enough to instantly dry up the suit if it is soaked in water.
- GPS Tracking System: In his right Web-Shooter, Parker has access to the suit's GPS tracking system via a holographic display, allowing him to follow the Spider-Drone and his Spider-Tracers. This feature also allowed Tony Stark to track his whereabouts at all times until Parker removed it.
- Enhanced Reconnaissance Mode: This mode allows Spider-Man's hearing and optics to be enhanced. It enables both X-Ray and infrared vision to see through solid objects and locate his target. It also allows for enhanced audio reception capabilities to the point that he can eavesdrop on conversations from yards away. It also corresponds to the suit's database, allowing for data retrieval about certain individuals and their backgrounds.
- Enhanced Combat Mode: The suit was programmed with a function to enhance combat ability and performance. A specific effect of this function was the default "Rapid Fire" setting for the web-shooters, allowing them to rapidly fire web projectiles, though this can be changed.
- Instant-Kill Mode: As the name suggests, this feature allows Spider-Man and his webs to have increased lethality. When activated, the suit's lenses enclose together, exposing only small red lights emitting from the eyes.
- Web Wings: A pair of wings that spread from his armpits and extend to his upper arms and thighs, allowing Spider-Man to glide in mid-air. They can be retracted when he does not need them, and are typically only used for when he's too high or not enough places for him to swing from.
- Reconnaissance Drone: In addition to altering the suit's size, the spider emblem on his chest is capable of detaching from its socket, utilizing a miniature propulsion engine from its tail section that allows it to fly through the air independent of Spider-Man's control. It has a tracker mode which allows it to fly onto a target and relay its position to the Spider-Man Suit, allowing Parker to follow targets through the interface of his Web-Shooters.
- Enhanced Interrogation Mode: Spider-Man's voice is digitally altered to sound deep, distorted and intimidating to further mask his identity while interrogating criminals. However, this feature is useless if they have previously heard him speak without the distortion.
- Web-Shooters: Taking the interdependent web shooters from his Stark suit, Parker was able to use them seamlessly integrated with his Stealth suit.
- Eye Lenses: Instead of being attached to the mask, the lenses can be flipped-up. This is due to the S.H.I.E.L.D. overlap design of the lenses to work with Parker's ski mask, and stay on his head during web swinging.
- Enhanced Durability: The Stealth Suit is made from Kevlar and was durable enough for him to withstand a shot from one of the Stark Industries Combat Drones.
- Web-Shooters: Parker's Upgraded web shooter models are now integrated into his suit to prevent him from losing them during combat.
- Taser Webs: When creating his upgraded suit, Parker increased the amperage of his Taser Web to 25 percent, as well as gave himself manual control over its activation using the spider logo on his suit. After connecting multiple Stark Industries Combat Drones together with his webbing, Spider-Man was able to disrupt the Elemental Fusion illusion in London, revealing the Drones' assault on the Tower Bridge.
- Web Wings: Like its predecessor, Parker's upgraded Spider-Man Suit can deploy his web wings to glide long distances. The suit also features a glide stabilizer that extends down the front of Parker's legs that allow for more maneuverability and longer flight time.
- Parachute: Parker's upgraded suit features a parachute that Spider-Man can deploy to decelerate his speed while falling. Unlike the previous suit, the parachute is smaller in size and in the shape of the Spider-Man emblem, while also having interspaced openings to give easier deployment.
|Appearances for Spider-Man Suit|
In chronological order:
- In most adaptations of the character, Peter Parker created his Spider-Man suit himself, while Tony Stark created the Iron Spider Armor for him. Parker's own Spider-Man suit is typically an ordinary costume without any internal functions, which he uses with his own independent equipment, such as his Web-Shooters and utility belt.
- The camera shutter-like eye lenses may refer to Peter Parker's photography for the Daily Bugle in the comics. It can also refer to numerous times in the comics where his eye lenses would widen or squint, despite the fact that he is wearing a cloth mask as Spider-Man.
- When activated, the "Instant-Kill" mode on Parker's tech suit makes him slightly resemble an alternate version of him called Assassin Spider-Man, who had black lenses.
- The Homemade Suit resembles Ben Reilly's costume as the Scarlet Spider, though the color palette is swapped.
- Ryan Meinerding, one of the concept artists who worked on Spider-Man: Homecoming, revealed an unused design of the Homemade Suit which bore a more striking resemblance to the Scarlet Spider.
- One of the Stark Suit’s two unused concept art designs from Spider-Man: Homecoming (red and blue, and red and black) are more strikingly resembles Ben Reilly’s Spider-Man suit, and the original red and blue concept art design is eventually being used and recreated for the Iron Spider suit design.
- Before the Iron Spider suit uses a similar design as Ben Reilly’s Spider-Man suit, one of the unused concept art designs of the Iron Spider suit for Avengers: Infinity War had a traditional red and gold suit based on its original comic universe’s counterpart, including a black and gold color design based on Aaron Davis’ Iron Spider suit.
- The Stark Suit borrows features from Doc Ock's first "Superior Spider-Man" suit, primarily in that the lenses feature a Heads-Up Display, facial recognition software, and a visual com-link.
- The two new suits from Spider-Man: Far from Home are heavily inspired from the suits used by two known Spider-Men from another reality:
- The Stealth Suit is heavily inspired from Spider-Man Noir, such as all black costumes, and similar goggles.
- The Upgraded Suit is heavily inspired from the original Steve Ditko stylized costume, which was red and black before eventually turning into red and blue with some loose inspiration from S.H.I.E.L.D. Spider-Man who debuted in Marvel Two-In-On: Thing and Human Torch #5.
- When Peter is creating his new suit on the Stark Industries Private Jet, one of the pre-made designs is that of the Velocity Suit from the Marvel's Spider-Man video game.
Behind the Scenes
- Each design of Peter Parker's suits are all based on a variety of costumes he wore in it the comics: the homemade suit's design is based on the Ben Reilly’s Scarlet Spider costume, the tech suit is an homage to the classic Steve Ditko costume.
- The suit was mostly a CGI creation for Captain America: Civil War, but an actual costume was created for Spider-Man: Homecoming, to be worn by Tom Holland. However, Holland once again used a CGI suit for Avengers: Infinity War.
- Concept art for the tech suit also reveals that it initially resembled the Superior Spider-Man suit from the comics.
- The mid-credits scene of Venom: Let There Be Carnage depicts Parker wearing the Upgraded Suit from Far From Home as his identity was revealed.
