MARVEL has revealed a new spiderman suit for the Parker-less Superior Spider-Man, which is sort of like Ben Reilly Spiderman costume. I really like a darker Spider-Man. On a tangential note about new Spiderman, I’m still not 100% in love with a Spider-Man not even in Peter’s body in the Ultimate Universe.
The SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN and SCARLET SPIDER reunite in SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN TEAM-UP #2 and SCARLET SPIDER #20. I am happy to know that finally a merge with Spider-man and Scarlet Spider. Ever since I learned the rebirth of Kaine in the Spider-Island arc, I am glad they are remaking him. I have been following Scarlet Spider since it first came out and I’m I like where it is going, and a merging is needed to see where Otto and Kaine will stand. I really can’t wait.
The black Spiderman costume has a large white spider on the chest and back and white organic web-shooters on the backs of the hands.
A variation on the black costume is featured in the film Spider-Man 3. The black Spiderman movie costume
includes the webbing pattern from Spider-Man’s red and blue costume with a black coloring and a slightly altered spider symbol, both on his chest and back.
The same costume is also worn by Venom, with the added details of Venom’s signature teeth, a more muscular appearance and a spider on his chest that closer resembles the comic book version’s spider emblem.
The Symbiote Costume, also known as the Black Spider-man Suit, is one of the most significant alterations to Spider-Man’s costume. It first appears in The Amazing Spider-Man #252 and Marvel Team-up #141, released concurrently in May 1984. The black costume stemmed from an idea submitted by a then 22-year-old fan named Randy Schueller in 1982, after Marvel had asked its readers for ideas for new Spider-Man stories. “I was thinking, ‘This is a guy who is swinging around at night wearing a bright red-and-blue costume.’ That’s where the black suit came from.” Schueller’s idea was purchased by Jim Shooter for the sum of $220. Shooter also asked Schueller’s help in possibly writing a script for Spider-Man’s new look.
Here’s the copy of the letter Randy received from Shooter almost 25 years ago, in August of 1982.
