Bringing an established character to the screen is an unusual challenge because readers have a strong idea of what they want to see, and actors want to bring something new to the role.

With this week's release of Amazing Spider-Man #656, everyone's favorite wall-crawling webslinger gets a new look (at least temporarily) in the form of an all-new set of Spider-Armor, courtesy of Dan Slott and Marcos Martin. It's not the first time Spider-Man has changed his look -- heck, it's not even the first time he's done so in favor of a suit of armor -- and while I thought this might be a g
