No one wants to wear clothes that seem dated. Not even Spider-Man. As some of you may or may not know, earlier this year, Spider-Man started sporting a very cool, new costume. In "Amazing Spider-Man" No. 30, writer J. Michael Straczynski goes into more detail about its abilities. The new duds are fire retardant, bulletproof to small calibur bullets, have mechanical spider legs coming out the back, and have a unique cloaking device that not only make Spider-Man hard to see but can also look like some of his older costumes.

Question is, does the stone base Iron Man has been set upon complete the sculpture, or is it an inconsequential companion of the colorful - and heavy - piece.
