So, you're a superhero whose crime-fighting prowess and successs are predicated on your agility, leaping ability, and lightning-quick reflexes. Clearly the best way to augment that would be with shiny, heavy armor.
For some reason, Spidey celebrated the one-hundredth issue of Web of Spider-Man with this bulky edition of his classic gear. Granted, with heavily-armed foes like the New Enforcers dogging him, it's understandable that the Wall-Crawler would want to be a little less susceptible to bullets than normal, but given that the armor didn't even survive its introductory issue, clearly this is one idea that should've remained on the drawing board.
Spidey would, of course, return to the idea of armored suits several times with varying degrees of success. But the original is both the weirdest and the most famous.
