"The Sinister Secret of Spider-Man's New Costume!" Guest-starring Mr. Fantastic and the Human Torch. Script by Tom DeFalco. Pencils by Ron Frenz. Inks by Joe Rubinstein. Cover by Ron Frenz and Joe Rubinstein. Chaos erupts at 410 Chelsea when Mary Jane Watson and the Black Cat meet inside Peter Parker's apartment! Wow, what a shocking development! To say that the web-slinger has some explaining to do...would be the understatement of the year! After the dust settles, the wall-crawler swings over to the Baxter Building to let Reed Richards analyze his new black costume. When Spider-Man learns his costume is "alive," he tries to pull it off; but the alien symbiote has other ideas! Can the Fantastic Four help Spidey with his major wardrobe malfunction? Cameo appearances by the Rose, Hobgoblin, and Puma. (Notes: The Black Cat and Mary Jane Watson are formally introduced to one another in Spectacular Spider-Man 123. The cover does not display the typical UPC box in the lower left-hand corner. This issue was reprinted in Marvel Tales 272.) 32 pages. Cover price $0.60.
