Dan Slott Relapses, Gives Superior Spider-Man New Costume

IGN has a first look at Marvel's Spider-Man family solicits, and friends and family of Superior Spider-Man writer Dan Slott will find themselves saddened and disappointed by what it reveals: Slott has relapsed, giving Spider-Man a new costume. It had been 14 issues since Slott last revamped Spider-Man's costume, as the Doctor Spiderpuss version of the character had some small changes, such as claw-like fingers. However, many remember when Slott was in the "rock-bottom" stage of his new-costume abuse, sometimes creating multiple costumes in a single issue for the Peter Parker version of the character.

The Superior Spider-Man #1 redesign was understanble, since the character was changing so drastically, but, during Slott's preceding Amazing Spider-Man run, Slott put Peter in dozens of different costumes, each with unique powers, such as armor, stealth, or the ability to make Spider-Man's butt look remarkably trim.

The costumes ranged from hideous and unnecessary:


To absurd:


To downright salacious:


At one point, thanks to Slott, the Marvel Universe was littered with so many alternate Spider-Man costumes, they were frequently being found discarded in trash cans in alleyways:


But after Superior Spider-Man launched, Slott seemed to have finally gotten the help he needed to overcome his problem and get back to doing what he does best: ruining Spider-Man the old fashioned way, with offensive treatment of the characters, rather than with bad fashion sense. Unfortunately, this brief period of sobriety seems to have come to an end, as the cover to Superior Spider-Man #15 shows Slott back to his old tricks.

How long before Slott is found slumped in a Dunkin Donuts bathroom, pants around his ankles, drooling on himself, with half-scribbled costume ideas on post-it notes strewn about the floor, high out of his gourd on a massive dose of costume design?

We give it about three weeks.
