Ladies And Gentlemen....

Presenting Spider-Man's new, post-The Others look..... I give you...... Iron Spider!!!!

What? What's everybody laughing at? Damn it, Tony Stark designed this suit. Um, Tony F**king Stark? Maybe you've heard of him? IRON MAN?!?

Screw it, I give up.

Sweet Jeebus that's ugly....

Oh dear god...

That's a joke, surely? That's got to be a prank.

Oh no...

"Hey, we've got a really successful Spidey film franchise doing the rounds, the toys sell like hot cakes, and the old cartoons are being played to a whole new audience in syndication. So the old red and blue is more recognisable than ever. So let's dump it and turn him into a Power Ranger."

Stupid, stupid Marvel.

I just find it sad that clearly, Tony Stark thinks Peter Parker is a grade-A tool. No one would seriously give this to a friend and expect them to wear it.

It's a "Hate Gift".

It's also a bit creepy. Is Stark going to dress up all the people on his side of the "civil war" in red and yellow?

And who's going to be on the other side? And do they get colour-coded costumes? And why can't I shake the feeling that this whole Civil War thing is really cretinous?

I hope he makes everyone on his side grow a moustache.

Tony Stark's Moustached Commandos

Now THAT's a book I'll gladly buy!

"Mustachioed" surely? It's all in the overly dramatic inflection.

Hmmm... conceded. You win this round, Kelvin....
