Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-Man No.1 Cover: Spider-Man by Mike Wieringo
Spider-Man represents one of the most successful comic book franchises. He first appears in Amazing Fantasy #15 in 1962 and then later receives his own comic series, Amazing Spider-Man. The superhero has been paired with every character in the Marvel Comics Universe and most recently as a member of The Avengers (possibly appearing in a future Avengers movie thanks to the new Marvel-Sony partnership).
Although the red and blue suit is the trademark costume of the character, Marvel has experimented over the years with changing his appearance. The first experimentation was the infamous “Spider-Man black suit” but it received negative reaction. He was reverted back to his original clothing, although the writers used the occasion to create an evil counterpart named Venom. Scarlett Spider featured the hero wearing a blue cut-off shirt on top of solid red tights but Marvel once again reverted the design back to the original—and started the infamous “Clone Wars” saga. In Marvel’s Ultimate Universe, during the “Civil War” storyline, Spider-Man adorned a special red suit that he later learned was rigged by Tony Stark in order to analyze his powers. A comic book series set in the future, Spider-Man 2099, featured a similar dark blue and red suit but the design appeared more futuristic.
