Amaz­ing spi­der-man #252

Comic Heroes - - Feature -

Spi­der-Man’s strik­ing red and blue cos­tume had be­come recog­nised the world over by 1984, so Marvel went and changed it for an all-black out­fit with a white spi­der on the chest, but still with the tra­di­tional white eye-holes. The new cos­tume de­buted in Amaz­ing Spi­der-Man #252 on a cover that was a homage to Amaz­ing Fan­tasy #15, but the ex­pla­na­tion for it came in the eighth is­sue of the year’s huge cross­over se­ries Se­cret Wars, which saw Marvel’s he­roes trans­ported to Bat­tle­world to slug it out. Spidey’s threads got trashed and some alien tech­nol­ogy gave him a new look… and, even­tu­ally, a big prob­lem.
