A new animation created by Marvel Comics celebrates 60 years of iconic costumes for everyone’s favorite Wall-Crawler, Spider Man. Even newcomers to the Marvel Universe will recognize the Webhead because he’s become more than just a character: he’s an icon. The hero has been roaming the comic book pages for 60 years now, and it’s a landmark that Marvel has been happy to celebrate all year. From the launch of a new amazing spider man comic book series at a full Spider-Man exhibit at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con titled “Beyond Amazing,” Marvel acknowledges the love for the character that fans have held for decades.


When it comes to why people love Spider-Man so much, fans give several reasons. Some say it’s the fact that he’s Marvel’s closest hero, as he’s more grounded in the average person than heroes like Iron Man and Hulk. Others might say it’s its huge gallery of rogue villains that are every bit as interesting as the hero they’re fighting. There are many reasons that made Spider-Man such a timeless character that continues to be relevant today. However, Spider-Man’s ever-changing costume designs have also kept the character fresh over the years, providing countless new stories of what he can do.

Recently wonder unveiled a new animation on his Twitter account that showcases 60 years of suits the Webhead has worn. This video has countless stills from comic books over the years as well as stunning animations when Spidey wants to show some of them. Some of the outfits featured include Spidey’s very first costume from the first comic, Incredible Fantasy #15, with its signature web wings. Next is the famous black suit that would follow him through several issues before creating the fan-favorite villain, Venom. There’s also the Iron Spider from when he sided with Tony in the monument Civil war script. Take a look at the exciting animation here:

What’s most exciting about this video is that after a trip down memory lane, Marvel actually dropped a preview of Spidey’s next big costume change. The new outfit looks very green in its design, as Spidey rides a special glider designed for him that he can steer using his webbing. What is most interesting is that he is holding something in his hands. It looks quite like a Pumpkin Bomb, but knowing Spider-Man, it won’t be as destructive. In fact, it could end up being a device containing his web to subdue his enemies. Fans will be able to see this new costume in action at the end of August with The Amazing Spider-Man #8.

From humble beginnings to an exciting look into the future that features a rekindled Black Cat romance, Marvel showcased some of the best outfits Spider-Man has ever worn. It just goes to show that no matter how old the character is, he will continue to delight fans with changes that will deliver new stories and epic designs that will one day become as iconic as the character. Marvel Comics pulled out all the stops to celebrate 60 years of Spider Manand this animation is a fantastic showcase of how the character has aged over the years.
