A new Spider-Man costume is revealed in ‘The Sensational Spider-Man: Self Improvement’ #1

A black and red Spidey suit Venom would be jealous of.

Spoilers ahead. You’ve been warned.

Spider-Man has the greatest superhero costume of all time, but he also might have the most costumes too. If you’ve played the PS4 Spider-Man game you know all about that, as it lets you switch your clothes with a ton of skins.

That’ll take some getting used to! Funny thing is, in the ’80s the idea of Mr. Fantastic making Spider-Man a costume came from Marvel fan Randy Schueller. You can read up on that if you pick up the issue.

This is only part of the story and I highly recommend you read the whole issue to see the suit in action!
