The Amazingly Shiny Spider-Man

January 25th, 2006 by dru

As socially cripling as it may sometimes be, I buy comic books. I buy them because I like them. I grew up liking them - they’re great. Lately my favorite superhero, Spider-man, has been going through some changes in Marvel’s new storyline, The Other. I don’t want to ruin the story for you if you’re going to read it but the real deal behind the whole thing is the brand new costume Spider-man is getting in next month’s Amazing Spider-Man #529. This new costume (designed by Joe Quesada) is being built by Tony Stark a.k.a. Iron Man and in my opinion looks particularly cheap.

I understand that Marvel has to sell books and nothing sells comics quite like a new Spider-man costume but this one just has me worried. I don’t know if it’s just too shiny for me or what but he looks like a giant bowling trophy. What do you think about it?
