Project Rooftop: Spider-Man by Verde13 Project Rooftop: Spider-Man by Verde13
This is my design for the Project Rooftop: Spider-Man 2.0 Redesign contest. I thought Peter Parker would need a more high tech suit. He created the web shooters, why not more, and not just a spandex suit? Lets start from the top.

I added more elements to the mask. Instead of a mask I made it a helmet. The dude gets knocked around in battle, so you would need something to protect your noggin. More "eyes" (lenses), like a spider. They could act as flashlights in a dark area, plus there could be night vision, infra red, etc.

I made the suit look more armor like, padding. Most his enemies are bigger and stronger, so one would need a suit like that in my opinion, Right? I also wanted to keep the spider insignia on his chest, but I incorporated the spider legs into the rest of the costume, breaking it up. I used black instead of red because it would be more stealth like, instead of blue and red. I added a honeycomb texture in place of the webbing pattern just for esthetic reasons. I also added a zipper seam on the costume because I imagine with all the superhero costume it would be a pain to have to hop in and out of a unitard. Plus what if you had to pee?

I gave him a backpack, because he would usually carry a camera and his civilian clothes. In the comics he would put them in a sack of webbing and tie it up somewhere. My thinking would be "Its spider webbing, wouldn't that ruin the camera and the clothes, or at least be a pain to get off?" So that's the thought behind the backpack, plus he could keep spare web shooters in there amongst whatever he needed or picked up (a bagged lunch, first aid kit?)

I added a utility belt because he would need spare cartridges for his web shooter. Plus he could have different web shooter cartridges for different purposes, Like in the comics he would have different strengths of webbing for different villains. Plus if he were to get into a building, he would need to break in, and I'm almost positive that not all buildings have ventilation shafts that you could crawl right into the building. So I added some lock picking tools to the utility belt.

I added knee pads, elbow pads, shoulder pads and sheath armor over his tibula and fibula, and metal on his knuckles. his shoes have plates on the toes and heels, because he does a lot of running and swinging kicks into people.

And that was my thought process for my costume redesign for spider-man. I hope it gets at least mentioned in the contest. Now that its finished and Ive had time to look it over, I can already hear some of the comments " Tron-Spider-man, Tom Clancy meets Spider-man, Nothing like Spider-man". I honestly look forward to the critique, no matter how torn apart it may be.

EDIT: Crap, I just realized his belt buckle, sort of looks like Deadpools. and congratulations to the winner, Mike Dimayuga!

I love it for an antagonist from a video game. Perhaps some Oscorp's Suit from Spider-Man itself.

Would you mind if I used this look for a Spider-Verse story?
Verde13 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014
Sure! That'd be awesome. I'd love to hear the story! Send me a link when you do :)
Superlove126 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2014
Thanks! My plan is to use this look for a universe where Spider-Man is a Robin Hood-type vigilante, stealing from those who have built their wealth on the backs of the poor

yo I'm feeling this. Although I have a few questions? wouldn't this cost even more than the web fluid and shooters?  I like what u did with the lenses, infra red mod is hardcore, but why are they not opaque? i can still see his eyes and that is the best and cool thing about his mask u cant see his eyes or any of his face. but excellent concept I wish they could do this in the comics one dat
Verde13 Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2013
Thank you! It probably would cost a lot. But I mean, it's a comic. If he can afford to constantly make web shooters/web cartridges and new custom tailored suits after battle damage (even on his daily bugle wage) he could shoot for a nicer one, right? The movie costumes for the first 2 movies were apparently a value of thousands a piece. A replica or shitty reproduction of the suit goes for at least $500 online. Even if he were to make a suit himself, he would probably spend a few hundred on material alone to make a suit. Or just hit up Tony Stark, or SHIELD to have it made. As for the lenses, It was a artistic license. I liked the idea that you could see a bit of his eyes for expression.

well hey did u ever read dan slott's spider-man arcs called big time and ends of the earth? where peter is now a scientific researcher working for a science facility called Horizons lab where he invents all these inventions and gadgets for himself and the company. In those arcs he makes a 3 super cool high-tech costumes for himself. there's one awesome costume that has a green neon tron look that can go stealth mode. one is bullet proof and fire proof, and the last one is like a power ranger armor costume he wore to stop the doc ock and the other villains from destroying the planet in the ends of the earth.. those were his only cool arcs before he made superior spider-man that sucks by the way. so yeah I can still see peter inventing something like this if he has the right resources.

I've followed a lot of 'What If' Spidey redesigns, and I can honestly say that yours is one of the top 5 I've seen and I've seen a lot. (big fan of spidey). I especially like the idea of the helmet, as he does get knocked around a lot. My only question is about the night vision (I guess the green just pops out too much for me) but couldn't Parker design a night vision lens that duplicated the properties of the tech, just having it look red?

Hats off to you for this!

PS Do you do commissions?
Metitas Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2012
Excellent design, the one complaint I have is his boots/shoes/whatever should have a Jika-tabi design ([link]) for more control/contact with floors, walls and roofs.

Still a well thought out design.

"Tom Clancy meets Spider-Man" sounds pretty awesome, actually, so if somebody was thinking of using that as an insult, they obviously don't know how to insult. And "Tron Spidey" has already been done twice, first as a variant cover in honor of the then-upcoming Tron Legacy film in late 2010 and second as the actual stealth armor Peter Parker creates for himself to fight the new Hobgoblin in issues 650 and 651 of The Amazing Spider-Man. The "Tron" element comes from the suit having glowing panels on his arms and legs and making up his spider symbol, and the actual stealth function makes him both invisible and inaudible, to the point that he needed to make special goggles and earpieces for his allies to be able to see and hear him --- and the glowing panels were to ensure that he could see himself even while in stealth mode. The suit also has a defense function that blocks sonic attacks, but has the drawback of making him incapable of hearing anything around him, as the defense function interprets all sound as a form of sonic attack.

Aside from all that exposition, I do rather like your idea for Spider-Man's new costume and it does largely fit into Peter Parker's needs as a superhero. In light of his recent kick in designing new costumes with improved features for specific enemies --- it helps that he's got his own lab now and is generally free to come and go as he pleases so long as he brings viable results to the table --- I could see Peter designing this kind of costume. Besides, if it had to be "Spider-Man Meets X," I'd go with "Spider-Man Meets Snake-Eyes" or for the more video game-inclined, "Spider-Man Meets Solid Snake." I'd even go with "Spider-Man Meets Batman Beyond," since the Beyond Batsuit was designed for improved resistance and stealth against certain foes, but all in all, this is a pretty cool costume for the web-slinger and I tip my hat off to you.

Wow, thank you!
ImpulsiveSpidercide Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2011
You're welcome. Good work deserves to be noticed, acknowledged, and praised, and you'd definitely have a future as a professional comic book artist. Speaking of, there is a "What If?" issue for the Spider-Man vs. Wolverine comic where Spider-Man followed Wolverine and became a secret agent who trained to hone his spider-sense to such an extent that literally nothing and nobody could go beneath his notice. I'm thinking that your costume idea could be a kind of upgrade for him in a follow-up comic, something that improve his stealth capabilities. How would that sound?
