The Most Marvelous Spider-Man Costumes - Ben Reilly

Ben Reilly Spider-Man Costume


Ben Reilly Spider-Man

Taking over the role of Spider-Man from Peter Parker, Ben wanted to add his own touch. A new take on an old classic, Ben Reilly did a little revamp on Peter Parker's iconic Spiderman costume before hitting the streets as Spider-Man. He added a bigger spider, did a little rearranging of the red and blue and tossed the web shooters on the outside. All this together gave a fresh new look to everyone's friendly neighborhood web-swinger while still preserving the spirit of the original get-up. And if you like this costume, you should check out amazing spider girl costume—what's that they say about fashion going in cycles?

The Amazing Alternative Spider-Man-2

2. Zombie Spider-Man

First appearance:
Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962)
Created by:
Stan Lee
Steve Ditko

In an alternate universe, earth’s greatest heroes become infected with a virus, turning them into flesh-craving zombies. But unlike Romero’s shuffling hordes, Zombie Spider-Man is capable of experiencing emotion; in particular, he suffers from incurable guilt, unable to forgive himself for devouring Aunt May and Mary Jane – two women that every other Spider-Man has endlessly protected.
In later stories, his taboo cravings diminish, and he eventually turns against his undead kin and becomes a hero more worthy of the name Spider-Man.


Spider-Ham Sometimes superheroes are rebooted to make them grittier, sexier, more mature. Sometimes, they’re rebooted to make them resemble farmyard animals. Peter Porker was born a humble spider, until one day he was bitten by an irradiated scientist called May Porker, who had just created the world’s first atomic hairdryer. This is the strange origin of Spider-Ham. The character first appeared in 1983’s Marvel Tails, a collection of stories aimed at children, featuring animal parodies of other well-known heroes from the Marvel stable (forgive me), including Captain Americat and Goose Rider.
