All 15 Spider-Man suits ranked from worst to best

We've witnessed many Spider-Man suits over the years. While some are breathtaking, others make you wonder how their design made it to the big screen. So it's time to separate the bad from the good and rank all the wall-crawler suits from worst to best.

7. Stark Suit

Okay, I know that placing the Stark suit in seventh place may be controversial. To be honest, I'm still second-guessing if it should rank higher on the list as I'm writing this. After all, it looks absolutely gorgeous, and it's incredibly faithful to Spider-Man's first look when he was created in 1967. Besides, it has no shortage of gadgets that make it incredibly useful. Whether you're on board with the idea of Spidey relying on tools gifted by another hero to save the day or not, we can't deny this suit is as practical as it gets.

With that being said, there are two reasons why it doesn't quite reach the heights set by other Spider-Man costumes. First and foremost; there were many, many times when it did not look as sharp as we would've hoped in Spider-Man: Homecoming. That had nothing to do with the design itself but with the VFX shots of the movie. Is it unfair to take points off from the Stark Suit due to its not-so-polished effects? Maybe, but it's also perplexing how the wall-crawler could look more unrealistic in a live-action project that was made in 2017 in comparison to the first of Sam Raimi's movies that premiered in 2002.

The second reason this costume didn't secure a higher spot on the list is that Peter Parker didn't make it himself. Call me old-fashioned, but I do believe one important aspect of the character is when he uses his wits and limited resources to stand on his own. Some of the suits we've talked about were gifted to Peter by someone else like Tony Stark, Nick Fury, or (technically) even Doc Ock. That's not something bad in itself but pales in comparison to when Peter takes the time to do the most with what he has and create something unique.

Leaving these two negative aspects aside, the Stark Suit is both charming and beautiful. It pays homage to the wall-crawler's first comic book appearance while also differentiating itself from anything Tobey Maguire's and Andrew Garfield's Peter Parkers wore. That was no easy task, but the MCU scored big time with this design, and in the process it let audiences know that the web-slinger was truly back home.
