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.

10. The Amazing Spider-Man suit

This is perhaps the most divisive Spider-Man suit ever created. Some people hate it, others love it, and a few of us hate to love it. With all the split opinions about it, it's only fitting it ranks just barely at the top then of the list.

The first Amazing Spider-Man movie wanted to differentiate itself from the Toby Maguires movies by any means necessary. Instead of the optimistic tone the original movies were known for, Mark Webb's first Spidey movie opted to be gritty, dark, and more realistic. Almost all scenes involving Spider-Man took place at night, and Peter Parker was portrayed more as a "cool" awkward guy than a straight-up nerd. Of course, the big-time changes also had to apply to Andrew Garfield's suit as well.

There's nothing bad with wanting to create something new and unlike anything that's ever been done. Subverting expectations could very well pay off. However, much like the rest of the movie, the suit tried a little too hard to differentiate itself from what came before it. If Marvel's Spider-Man for PS4 taught us something is that even the slightest of changes (such as having a white spider logo) can make up for the biggest of differences. There's no need to redesign absolutely every detail of the classic suit, and yet that's what happened with The Amazing Spider-Man.

But even if Sony didn't need to go all in with the changes, the result is far away from being horrible. Truth be told, this Spider-Man suit can look gorgeous at times when Peter is swinging through the air in the middle of the night. It also helps the special effects are some of the best the wall-crawler has seen to date, making this costume seem real and tangible at all times. And let's be honest, there's something special about the way the yellow eyes contrast against the night sky that no other Spidey look will ever be able to replicate. At the very least, no one can deny this design is unique.
