This weeks Poll Position is going to be a bit different. Instead of determining who would win in a One on One battle I am instead going to ask you to vote in two separate polls for 8 different Spider-Man costumes. The First Poll will be too determine which of the 8 is the best Spider-Man costume of the lot and the second is to decide which is the worse of the lot!.
The images for the Poll will be available for your viewing pleasure after the jump. Please feel free to comment upon any or all of the costumes as well as letting us know which you think is the best and the worst in the comment section below!

There are your 8 choices folks! For my Money I say The Black Suit Spider-Man Costume is the Best of the Bunch. I just love the simplicity of the design plus I believe it is the most menacing appearing Spidey Suit and helps add fear to the hearts of cowardly villains! As for the Worst of the Lot ? Hands down I have to say that would be Michelin Man errr I mean Armored Spider-Man!
Scarlet Spider was my favorite
This Weeks Poll is limited to actual Spider-Man Costumes, Next week I believe I will follow up with a Spider-Man Family poll. On that I would put up The Scarlet Spider, Spider-Woman, Spider-Girl, Venom, Carnage etc.
No brainer. Classic Spidey is the best. Iron Spider-Man is worst. The color scheme is all wrong.
Out of this selection I thought the Iron Spiderman was actually the coolest looking, powerful, and functional. I mean it can quickly morph into a backpack! Sweet. That Spiderman unlimited one was all wrong and show sucked too. 2099 is pretty cool too, I agree that Armored spidey looks stupid. I kinda Like Bens costume. Oh there was Noir Spiderman too. I dunno if that counts on this list.
Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Nice collection, but none of which I would consider to be “the worst” spiderman costume.
For that honour, I’d go with either the Cosmic Spiderman suit;
The 1602 suit:
or the classic – Bagman:
And outta those too… I’d go for the Cosmic.
My deciding facter being that 1602 works in the time period… kinda. And that Bagman is MEANT to be bad… which, by the laws of the universe, make it good
I had considered adding the Cosmic Suit, but left it out because I considered it more of a Captain Universe Costume instead of a Spider-Man costume even if Spidey was the one Processed.
I voted for classic Spidey as well, but I will say that the dark blue in the illustration looks really black to me.
The rest of these are pretty goshdarn hideous. Are you sure you didn’t confuse Poll Position Tuesday with Bad Super Costumes Wednesday? 🙂
Believe it or not, I won’t hold that against you: it’s my #2 choice, after the black one.
I actually liked the overall layout of that design, a short jacket over a slim-fitting jumpsuit. That’s about what I’d wear, if pushed into action as a superhero, as it seems both tasteful and practical. I just didn’t like the colors.
Also, the poll forgot the “future Spidey” costume that he saw in his vision of being hunted down and killed, the one that the superhero tailor proposed for him.
For my own part, I’ve always liked the black suit. Not only do I feel a bit of nostalgia for that time period anyway (sue me, I was 10 and happy), but I like both the black color and the clean, simple design. That’s my thing. And that fact that it healed itself, could turn into clothes, and so on actually made it practical!
Apparently I forgot yet another “Spider-Man” costume I JUST discovered for the first time. The Marvel’s Mangaverse version of the Web-head
I think you found my new hate-rite* spidey costume! (*favorite to hate)
black suit all the way. i love the classic but spiders are creepy-crawlers in the night. the simple black design is so cool. the scarlet spider is just awful.
People REALLY don’t like Armored Spidey, it seems! And 2099’s not doing much better. 😛
