IN the secret wars miniseries. -The black Symbiote suit is first worn in Amazing Spider-man #252: Secret Wars #8.

Why did Spider man's parents get killed?

User Avatar
In a plane crash was what was first thought to be the cause of their death. In the 90s his parents came back to life saying they had worked for the government and got caught by the Russians for 20 years. It was later revealed they were robots made by Chameleon and Green Goblin ( Harry). The real way they died was that they worked for C.I.A and OSS the third red skull Malik caught them spying and sabotaged there plane. So yeah they did die in a plane crash but it was more complicated then that

How the peter Parker became spider-man?

User Avatar
As a high school student, young Peter Parker got bitten by a radioactive spider at a science fair field trip. He developed spider-like abilities and then made mechanical web shooters as well as a costume. That was when he decided to try to make money as a professional wrestler. After being too selfish to stop a running criminal and finding out that same guy had killed his beloved Uncle Ben- he started helping people in danger by remembering the words: "With great power, comes great responsibility."

Why is Spider-Man's suit red and blue?

User Avatar
Spidey's Suit Colors Here are answers and opinions from FAQ Farmers: That was the color of the spider who bit him in the movie. As far as the comic books go, those were just the colors he chose. Most superhero costumes in the 1960s favored bright primary colors such as red and blue, sometimes with yellow. (Recall Superman, the Flash, Iron Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, the X-Men, etc.) Exceptions include Green Lantern and Green Arrow. By contrast, villains often sported purple and/or green, along with gray and black. (Dr. Doom, Magneto, Dr. Octopus, the Lizard, Kang, Green Goblin, Luthor-as-supervillain, Impossible Man, etc). Batman stands out as a major exception because he uses the same black/gray motif common among villains, suggesting his "darker" nature compared to other superheroes. Likewise, Marvel broke the four-color barrier by introducing the green Hulk, who always sported purple pants--another departure from the standard superhero motif. Because Superman is red and blue! Spider-Man and Superman are both just average joes behind the super scenes. Marvel used these colors as an allegory to a superhero with similar circumstances. Superman was a DC comic character, and spiderman was Marvel, different comics, also, back when comics where most popular, the creators stressed alot of patriotism in their characters, using red blue and some white Because of Mary-Jane. Her hair is red and her eyes are blue! Because the colors of the American Flag are Red,White and Blue. Spider-mans suit is Red and Blue plus his eyes are White. Our first comic heroes (and villains) were limited to bright colors because of the cost of black ink. Black ink (even today) cost a great deal more than any other color because it is the most used color for print. Spider-Man's first appearance shows the costume in the darker blue (not black) with blue highlights, red and the darker-red web design. The only spider of the same color is the Long-jawed Orb Weaver. I would also imagine they either wanted it to be "kid friendly" like DC did for Robin The Boy Wonder or color was a new thing for these guys who worked in B&W during their early years ... "Hey look, COLORS, wow let's use those!" peter Parker was brain storming in his room when he decided on it because he likes red and blue To give Spider-Man a more sinister, dangerous look: Spider-man's original costume was actually RED AND BLACK. Black is often depicted in US super-hero comics as 'Black with blue highlights', which usually gives way to 'blue with black shadows'. This then is mis-intrepretted as blue. From Superman and Wonder Woman's black hair, to The Batman's black cape and Batmobile, to many Marvel and DC heroes and villains who's names begin with "Black". Many have their black costumes (Black Canary, the original X-Men, symbiote costumed Spider-Man, and Venom) depicted as 'black with some blue highlights', but this soon give way to a more commercial, heroic and colorful 'blue'. Spider-Man's costume has three colours: Red (background for webbed areas), Black (bodysuit, webs & borders on eyes) and mirror/silver for the "2-way mirror" eye lenses. Spider-Man's black body suit has been misrepresented as blue for years (as with the black parts of The Batman's costume for 50 years, until Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns" corrected this) and in recent years even the black borders around Spider-Man's eye lenses have been depicted with blue highlights, which may lead to them also being depicted as blue. The black spider on his chest might also soon be misrepresented with blue highlights, and subsequently misintrepretted as blue. The RED AND BLACK color scheme for Spider-Man's costume was in keeping with the Spider motif: dangerous and sinister, almost appearing villainous. This is why the eyes of Spider-Man's mask are so sinister. The Red and Blue scheme, along with larger, 'distressed, hapless' eyes on the mask are to depict Spider-man as more of a pathetic victim, rather than the sinister Red & Black with ruthless predatory eyes (the perfect counter-balance to Peter Parkers good natured, bookworm personality; and giving him a sleek, daring, edgy, near-sinister evil alter ego that would naturally be desired by someone so straight laced.)

How much is the Amazing Fantasy comic where Spider Man makes his first appearance worth?

User Avatar
Amazing Fantasy #15 is probably worth as much as you are willing to pay for it. However, it is currently selling (2010) at approximately $120,000 at the upper end of the scale; if you are willing to believe some auction houses. Even low grade copies are selling at a premium. I believe that there are about 1400 copies known to exist and very few of these are high grade copies. Like most valuable items it is a matter of supply and demand. I hope this is some help to you.

How much is the first issue of Amazing Spider-Man worth?

User Avatar
nout mate x Amazing Spider-Man comic from 1963 in mint condition is worth approximately $75,000 or £49,000 (2010). It does depend on whether you are willing to pay that much for it though. The problem with pricing the top end comics is that the prices are artificially inflated by auction houses. These organisations have private sales to self-publicise; Action Comics #1 and Detective Comics #27 being auctioned for approx. $1,000,000 dollars each are a case point. The auction was held, lots of publicity, but with no actual proof of sale. I hope this is of some help to you. As far as the Amazing Spider-Man goes, my copy is worth nothing as it's not for sale. Or if you have a PSP version 6.20 you can buy it off playstation store for $1.49 $49,894 or £49,548

What are the details on Spider-Man 4?

User Avatar
The fourth film that had been planned as a follow-up to "Spider-Man 3" was scrapped. Instead- the next film is a reboot which is retelling the origin story. However, things will be different this time around as the villain is going to be the Lizard who is Peter Parker's friend and mentor Dr. Curt Connors transformed. His lover will be Gwen Stacy who is the daughter of the police captain George Stacy. The details of the plot are unknown at this time- all that is known is that there will be some big battles between Spidey and the Lizard.
