Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes?

But the Sentinel of Liberty must face this new threat alone, after his partner Nomad’s very sense of self is called into question during a life-changing encounter with the maniacal Madcap! The identity crisis continues when Hawkeye wields Cap’s shield, the Beyonder takes his face, and Steve Rogers dons the red, white and blue of…Captain Britain?! The armored Armadillo, the Batroc Brigade and the fundamentalist Flag-Smasher all await, while Steve’s personal life suffers its own share of turmoil. But he’s about to find his true artistic calling — in the hallowed halls of Marvel Comics! Collecting CAPTAIN AMERICA (1968) #302-317 and material from MARVEL FANFARE (1982) #18.

When Spider-Man returns from the Secret Wars with a snazzy new black suit, he’s faster and stronger — and has an unending inbuilt supply of webbing! All the better for tussling with foes such as the Rose, Black Fox, Red Ghost, Jack O’Lantern, Puma and the Blob! Not only that, but he’s dressed to impress the Black Cat, too — much to Mary Jane’s dismay. But there’s something about Peter that’s not quite right. Curse that ol’ Parker luck, the black costume just happens to be a hungry alien symbiote — and it’s grown very attached to him! Savor a chronological retelling of Spider-Man’s epic wardrobe malfunction, told across the three Spidey titles of the era! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) #252-258, MARVEL TEAM-UP (1972) #141-145 and ANNUAL #7, and PETER PARKER, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN (1976) #90-95.
