08 Ultimate Spider-WomanUltimate Spider-Woman ( Peter Parker/Jessica Drew ) - A Clone of Peter Parker from the Marvels Ultimate Universe.




07 Spider-Woman Mattie Franklin


Spider-Woman ( Mattie Franklin ) - Gained her powers at a gathering intended to give Norman Osborn Powers like Spider-Mans and later gain both Jessica Drew's & Julia Carpenters blessing to take on the mantle of Spider-Woman




09 Spider-Girl May (Mayday) Parker

Spider-Girl ( May "Mayday" Parker) - The future daughter of Peter Parker wearing her "Uncles" Ben Reilly's Spider-Man costume.




10 Spider-Girl Anya Corazon

Spider-Girl ( Anya Corazon ) - Gained her powers as a result of a mystic ceremony when joining the The Spider Society.




I really like Anya Corazon's costume because it is the most original of the lot, but in the end I think I am going to select as the best costume of this lot, Ultimate Spider-Woman. My reason for this selection is the same as last weeks  choice. I like the simplicity of the design coupled with the sense of intimidation it invokes.


That's my choice, what's yours ? Let us know in the comments.

    My apologies to you all. I had just noticed that I forgot to add an Image for Ultimate Spider-Woman to the gallery here when I first crafted this post. I have fixed that and her Image is now included in those shown above.

    i can appreciate the practical elements of Anya’s design. Most people who suddenly gain super powers won’t have the time/skill to make an elaborate costume. And anyone who does would probably say it’s not worth the work, for something that’s going to get filled with bullet holes.

    Although I agree with Calvary_Red on any super’s sewing skills, I vote for the original Spider-Woman costume. It’s just… super.

    Anya’s custom does, indeed, break the mold, and deserves points for that, but it doesn’t LOOK like a super-costume much.
    As said before, I’ve long had a weakness for Ben Reilly’s costume: the skinsuit-and-jacket format is very appealing and practical. But the colors suck, and I have no idea WHAT the anklets are for.
    In the end, I have to go with Kaldath, and vote for USW’s outfit, even though I’ve never seen it before. The simple design and dark-red colors are precisely what the original suit should have looked like, IMO, and are a great compromise between the black and classic-red costumes, besides.

    none of the above. i really dont like derivative characters. “i know! lets put boobs on spider/super/bat man and that will increase sales! not a fan of wolver-girl or whatever shes called either.

  6. Avatar cavalier says:

    I always think of Spider-folks as a very bold, outgoing sort. The design of the (original) Jessica Drew’s outfit fits conveys that. Bright colors that work well together in a simple but effective design.

    I’d like to ask you all a question. Would you like me to extend the better costume poll a week or two, or do you prefer the more traditional x vs y battle type poll ?

    I can do without the “battle” polls, myself, and have consciously avoided them. Polls like this allow for expression of a wider range of opinions, and potentially inspire a good deal of creativity, as we think of alternatives!
    For example, debating the last two spider-costume polls led me to a question: if Spidey had been a female character from the beginning what would she have worn? (She might not have had an “old pair of red-and-blue longjohns” lying around.) A simple “battle” poll wouldn’t have stimulated my imagination in the same way.

    I also went with original Jessica Drew, whose costume I’ve liked since I had started collecting comics as a young teen. I like Anya as a character, but I have to say that I was pretty indifferent to her “urban youth” street clothes look.

    I’m pretty cool with you continuing the “best-of” costume showdown for a while, Kaldath.
