Exclusive Preview: Symbiote Spider-Man #4

Over three decades ago, Spider-Man came back from the first Secret Wars with a brand new black costume. But soon enough, fans learned that the costume was actually a living symbiote. When Peter Parker rejected the symbiote, it joined with Eddie Brock and became Venom, one of Spider-Man’s deadliest enemies. But before things went bad, Spidey and the symbiote made a pretty good team.

Peter David and artist Greg Land are currently revisiting that era in Marvel’s Symbiote Spider-Man miniseries. In the first three issues, Mysterio took an interest in Spidey’s new costume and blackmailed the Black Cat into stealing a piece of it. In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Symbiote Spider-Man #4, Black Cat holds up her end of the deal. However, Mysterio may come to regret antagonizing the symbiote. Because unknown to everyone, the symbiote has been possessing Spidey’s body while he sleeps. And this symbiote Spider-Man has no mercy…

Mysterio finds himself in possession of a sliver of the black costume, unaware of its true nature… Then, tensions continue to mount between Peter Parker, A.K.A. SPIDER-MAN, and his girlfriend, Felicia Hardy, A.K.A. THE BLACK CAT, as she’s been keeping something from him – something that threatens to tear apart their relationship!”
