Debut: Secret Wars #8
When it comes to Spider-Man costumes, there is none cooler than the black symbiote. This was the first permanent (at the time) costume change for Spider-Man ever. In many ways, the black symbiote suit rejuvenated the character and opened the doors for a whole new generation of stories. Much of the late 80’s and 1990’s were influenced directly by the darker tone that the black suit had brought. Without it, Venom would not have been created. And let’s face it, black will always be in style.
Disagree with the list? What costume do you think made Spider-Man the coolest hero in the neighborhood?
