In the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Parker has been locked in a losing battle with Kindred, a demon who was once his best friend. But it looks like even darker times are ahead for Spidey. For reasons that aren’t clear yet, Spider-Man is picking up a new outfit for his showdown with the Kingpin. And it’s quite a departure from the traditional look.
Marvel has debuted Spidey’s new high tech costume, as designed by Dustin Weaver. The costume will make its first appearance this March in Amazing Spider-Man #62 by Nick Spencer and artist Patrick Gleason.

“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,” said Weaver. “I can’t wait to see Patrick Gleason really bring it to life!”
Weaver also illustrated the two variant covers within this post. So far, it’s too soon to gauge fan reaction to the new suit. But if you don’t like it, just remember that Spidey always goes back to his original outfit at some point. This costume won’t last for years and years, and it probably has some in-story justification for it.
