There are a lot of good costumes in Marvel’s Spider-Man. Like, a lot. They kept adding them, too! And while my dear colleague Germain made a pretty solid case for why the game’s mindbogglingly clever “vintage comics-style” suit is one of its best, the game’s last slice of DLC added what has become my Spidey-Spandex of…
