New year, new costume right? For over fifty-eight years Spider-Man has been web-swinging through the pages of our favorite comic books, television shows, films, and video games. Besides the classic blue and red we have also become familiar with others like the Iron Spider, Superior Spider-Man, the Scarlet Spider, Miles Morales Spider-Man, and the classic Symbiote Spider-Man. Now Marvel is ready for something new for 2021.
Today Marvel Comics has unveiled a new costume. This was designed by superstar artist, Dustin Weaver. The new look for Peter Parker will be featured on the variant covers for Amazing Spider-Man #62 and Amazing Spider-Man #63. You can check them out below!
“This design was really a collaborative effort between Nick Spencer, Editor Nick Lowe, and I. They reined in the weirder and more techy features I was bringing and helped create something that I think is simple and both futuristic and classical,” Weaver said. “I can’t wait to see Patrick Gleason really bring it to life!”
This new suit will debut following the traumatic events of Sin’s Rising. This new arc will continue to be written by Nick Spencer. Here we will see Spider-Man faceoff with one of his well-known villains, the Kingpin. We will learn about the mystery of this new costume in Amazing Spider-Man #61 and Amazing Spider-Man #62 this March.
I think that the color scheme is kind of cool. Not sure how I feel about the eyes. That will be the only think I nit-pick for now. It will be fun to read how this costume gets introduced into the book. Also how soon we will see it off the pages of the comic books and into a video game or animated series.
