When Spider-Man gets himself a cool new black-and-white costume, that ol' Parker luck must finally be turning, right? Wrong! In the ultimate fashion nightmare, the costume is alive - and it doesn't want to come off ! If Peter can somehow get out of the black and back into the red-and-blues, the poor shunned symbiote will bear a grudge - and when it finds Eddie Brock, who is no fan of Spider-Man himself, the terrifying Venom is born! He's destined to be the wall-crawler's deadliest villain. But if that doesn't work out, he'll be Spidey's sidekick instead! It's hard to work out which is worse! Plus, a rivalry for the ages is born when the Venom symbiote bonds with...Peter's best pal, Harry Osborn!
