The suit is based upon the Spider-Man suit from Web of Spider-Man #100. In original comic lore, the suit is made of pseudo-metallic compounds and may have the same bullet proof properties as the Spider Armor - MK II Suit, but is essentially weaker, such as being vulnerable to toxic.
While the Spider-Armor MK I Suit's web pattern is based on that of the Classic Suit, that is the only similarity that it has with that suit. Instead of the iconic red and blue, this armored suit has a predominately silver and black color scheme. The torso portion of the suit consists of an armored chestplate with a small spider-logo on the front and a large armored spider-logo on the back. The arms of the suit consist of silver armored gauntlets. The mask, while also armored, lacks the expressive shutter eyes featured on other suits. The lower portion of the suit is mostly unarmored save for the boots.
