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.

3. Upgraded Suit

If you were to take Spider-Man's first ever comic-book suit made all the way back in 1962 and adapt it to the big screen, this is exactly what it would look like. Every aspect, from the underarm webbing to the shape of the lenses, appears to pay homage to the original look the wall-crawler sported when Stan Lee and Steve Ditko first created him. Needless to say, it's absolutely beautiful in live-action.

Tom Holland's upgraded suit opted to drop the blue color everybody expects from our friendly neighborhood hero in favor of black. But even when that may sound like a striking difference from his design on comic-book pages, it didn't end up being that way. The original color palette for the wall crawler's costume had a very dark blue that sometimes appeared to be more like black due to how Steve Ditko drew texture shadows. With that in mind, the upgraded suit is as comic-book-accurate as it can be. Besides, not only does Spider-Man look phenomenal in it, but it also holds great narrative importance.

Tom Holland's Peter Parker had only created one suit for himself - the homemade suit - before this. Both the Homecoming and Iron Spider costumes were given to him by Tony Stark himself. Additionally, the Night Monkey look was created by Nick Fury alongside S.H.I.E.L.D. This is the very first "official" Spider-Man suit Peter Parker made in the MCU, and that makes it all the more special. Besides, this one (thankfully) had better special effects in comparison to the Stark Suit.

It's a shame a pedestrian had to ruin it by throwing green paint on it in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
