About Spiderman Costumes

There are many famous American superheroes in the pantheon of characters created by the likes of Marvel, DC, and Image Comics, but Spider-Man is the proud owner of perhaps the most iconic costume of all. Indeed, the iconic red and blue design of the many Spider-Man costumes designed through the years is recognizable across the globe. Stan Lee and Steve Ditko first created Spider-Man in 1962. The pair wished to create a character that teenagers would identify with, and thus the shy, unpopular Peter Parker was born. Lee decided that a brighter and friendlier costume would better suit the young adventurer more than a grim and menacing costume, so he had Ditko flesh out his ideas. Soon, the much beloved red and blue costume was born, and the web slinger rose to dizzying new heights of popularity. Spider-Man movie costumes come in many different shapes and sizes, such as those worn in Sam Raimi's 2002 movie starring Tobey Maguire. If spandex sounds a little too adventurous, you can also buy Spider-Man muscle costumes, perfect for faking Spidey's bulging muscles. No matter what kind of Spider-Man costumes you are looking for, you are sure to find everything you need on eBay.
