There is a class of device specifically created with the supersuit and lethal embarrassment for the wearer in mind. So-called ‘crawler’ devices generally look like flat centipede constructs that try to slip down the neck or up the hems of a supersuit and may cause severe discomfort to the wearer in any number of fiendish ways. The only way to get rid of them is to forcibly remove the suit, generally leaving the wearer naked. For this reason, supersuits must be sealed around the neck, sleeves and ankles (assuming they don’t come with full head masks, gloves and booties) to be effective. Even so, several versions of crawlers can make their own holes, so some of the latest supersuits have anti-intrusion countermeasures. Finally, versions of the crawler have been made with a more pleasant goal in mind for the keen fetishist or the severely perverted villain.
