Amazing Spider-Man Annual Symbiote cover header

In 1984, Peter Parker came into possession of a parasitic alien life form on the planet known as Battleworld as part of the Secret Wars event series. Now wearing a sleek black costume, Spider-Man brought the symbiote back home to Earth, where he used it as his newest weapon to fight crime.

What Peter didn't exactly know at the time was that the alien symbiote had a mind of its own. Now, decades later, the mystery of what strange adventures the symbiote was up to before Peter would permanently part with it will be revealed.
