Tony Stark Made spider-man a Special Uniform. Known as the Stark Spider Uniform, or the Iron Spider, this uniform was built for Spider-Man by the one and only Tony Stark. Originally designed to replace the red and blue suit, it was built to be faster and stronger, and it came with three handy, fully functioning spider legs that popped out of the back of the uniform on command. It was built during the Civil War event, when Spider-Man sided with Iron Man over the Identity crisis. The spider arms could act as functioning arms, had cameras on the ends of the legs, and were articulated so that they could be used as grippers.
