Made up of spandex which is nothing but stretchy polyurethane fabric includes red and blue color contrast. This costume designed is very simple filled with only two colors.
Though it looks like a simple costume, it does include various hidden tools such as the utility belt.
Peter always keeps extra webbing capsules if he runs out of it. He also carries Spider-Tracers as well as Spider-Signal for a forensic analysis purpose.
Hence, in this costume, Peter Parker can afford to hold utility belt only.
However, it’s a fabric design which easier to repair. Even though it does not includes any weapons and explosives, at the end of the day, it’s a best classical suit Peter Parker has ever used which is most versatile and stylish looking.

Though it is not very advantageous against all type of villains, Electro-Proof Suit mainly made for Spider-Man’s one of infamous arc-enemies, Electro as he holds electric powers.
Electro’s shocking attacks would be meaningless against the Electro-Proof suit since a rubbing padding running throughout the whole costume. Hence, Electro must come up with an alternative plan before attacking else it would be waste against Electro-Proof costume.
However, the only limitation to this costume is that it includes features which counterattacks explicitly electricity powers.
Hence if the Sinister Six confronts Spider-Man, then Peter Parker needs to don technologically more advanced suit like Iron Spider.
13. SPIDER-ARMOR MK I
Spider-Armor MK I is pseudo-metallic as well as a bulletproof costume that resists any. In the high-density cities like New York, the criminals always armed with weaponry and guns. So Spider-Armor suit is perfect protection against them.
Therefore, it would be beneficial to fight against organized criminals or even someone trained like Punisher.
Like each thing born with its limitations, Spider-Armor could slow down Peter due to its heavy weight. It also made him less agile during the fighting. Although Spider-Armor MK I was featured for an only short period, it becomes a quick fan favorite among gamers.
12. SPIDER-MAN 2099
Peter Parker is not the only Marvel character who had beaten by a spider. In each alternate universe, there are hundreds of Spider-Mans who has their unique costumes. And Spider-Man 2099 is one of them.

This costume is made up of unstable molecule fabric which makes the suit indestructible. Thus it helps O’Hara to use his claws without even damaging the suit.
The exciting thing is that he had telepathy ability that he used to communicate with others.
The scientific reason behind it still yet to find but it’s assumed that it because of enhanced spider-sense which mutated in a much different way.
It’s not the suit which helps Miguel while fighting villains. It’s his gifted powers and abilities that always backed him . Having skills such as finest reflexes, healing factor exceptionally, Miguel is the strongest known Spider-Man even known.
11. FUTURE FOUNDATION SUIT

In the Amazing Spider-Man #529, Tony Stark built this suit for Peter Parker using Stark Tech. But eventually, Peter rejected Stark Spider Uniform during Civil War. If we compared both versions of the suit, it has nearly the same appearance and functions.
In the Avengers: Infinity War, to save Peter Parker’s life from suffocation, Tony called Iron Spider suit. As expected from Spider-Man, the suit had done marvelous during the battle of Titan.
Iron Spider features Neural-Reactive Interface that responses to Peter’s input action in no time. Suit’s reaction time so impressive that it always find a way when Peter is in danger.
Besides this, it includes Waldoes that controlled by Neural-Reactive Interface, Armored Web-Shooters, Enhanced Lenses, Parachute.

9. STARK SUIT
In Spider-Man: Homecoming, Tony Stark did some minor but notable upgrades to Parker’s handmade suit before Captain America: Civil War.
This classic costume holds some remarkable features that could overcome the limitations of old suits. The central part of the outfit is its inbuilt artificial intelligence (Karen) system for the aid of Peter. It allows Peter to use 576 various combinations of his synthetic webbing.
Out of 576, Spider-Man shows off Web Grenade, Taser Web, Splitter Web, Rapid Fire, Ricochet Web, etc. This Tech suit further includes one hidden Spider-Tracer in the form of tiny spider bot which helps him for scanning.
Like I said earlier, Utility Belt is the essential tool for Spider-Man that holds web cartridges in case Peter runs out of webbing.
Additionally Tony added some functions like Combat Mode in which we saw Instant-Kill Mode for a brief amount. It allows him to kill a target instantly. Besides this, the suit had Interrogation Mode, GPS Tracking System, Parachute, Web Wings, etc.
Tech Suit had plenty of hidden features that was supposed to activate after Peter completes the Training Wheels Protocol. But if it wasn’t for Ned Leeds who unlocked its bonus abilities, Peter couldn’t have got a hand onto the suit.

Spider-Man’s one of the arch-enemies, Venom once donned Peter Parker’s body in which hero’s red/blue costume turn into blackish color. It’s not the only color; the Alien symbiote holds some strange powers that improve the host’s abilities at a different level.
In the Marvel comics, Alien Symbiote made the first appearance back in Amazing Spider-Man #252 where Peter wore symbiote suit for the first time and fought for good.
The advantage of this suit is that it enhanced Parker’s abilities like strength, speed, spider sense as well as a healing factor. It also allows Peter to create unlimited organic webbing from the suit.
Besides this, the suit provides mimicking clothing (It would be easier to transform him into Symbiote suit in the public areas) ability to the user, allows breathing underwater, can survive in space, etc.
Though alien symbiote possesses such incredible powers, it has one weakness. Over time, it will start taking over the host body as well mind and unveils its darker personality. Hence it’s better to avoid Black Symbiote Suit when you already have access to Iron Spider.
7. SPIDER-ARMOR MK III

The Spider-Armor includes functions like Electro-proof ability, impact resistance, mechanical web shooters, Hearing Acuity Device, Enhanced Lenses, jet boosters, utility belt, etc.
In conclusion, it’s an Iron Spider 2.0 without Spider legs.
As the Spider-Armor III suit had no limitations, but seriously, If Peter Parker had this type of the suit, it would make very difficult for his enemies to defeat web-slinger.
6. CAPTAIN UNIVERSE
If you want to know Captain Universe’s power, you will be amazed. It was the most robust Spider-Man appearance ever in the Marvel Universe.
As the name suggests, its the Omni-Power that granted Spider-Man nearly limitless strength (due to lab accident), provides him immortality, the ability to fly travel within the hyperspace, enhanced senses, etc.
While Spider-Man as Captain Universe fought fearlessly against Tri-Sentinel, hero unleashes a powerful blast. When Peter Parker recovered from the explosion, he realizes that the Omni-Power left his body. Sadly enough, Peter lost his superpowers as Captain Universe.
Although Captain Universe became one of the strongest and most powerful superheroes in the Marvel universe, it didn’t last long enough. However, still, it’s the powers that Peter wanted to explore so badly.
5. STEALTH SUIT
Also known as Spidey Stealth Suit, Peter Parker created this suit back in Amazing Spider-Man #650. It helps him to resist Hobgoblin’s sonic Screams.
The suit has a total of two unique modes, and that is Camo Mode and Anti Sound Mode.

The costume is made up of Unstable Molecules.due to which no one can destroy it. Even if it damages or needs to repair, the suit has the inbuilt Healing functionality to mend itself. In short, Stealth Suit will work most efficiently whenever Peter Parker faces enemies with sounds powers.

Same as MCU’s Tony Stark’s suit, this suit also made up of liquid nanotechnology that responds to the user’s mental and vocal commands.
So it would be best if MCU introduced this type of spider costume in the Spider-Man: Far From Home. As over a social media, there are already rumors of Tom Holland’s new suit.
3. FEAR ITSELF SUIT
Fear Itself suit first appeared in ‘Fear Itself #7‘ that made up of Uru metal which was the same metal that created Mjolnir.
