Letters Column: The Spider's Web

When Spider-Man and the Avengers suddenly re-appear in Central Park, the world questions where they've been. Strangely, Spider-Man returns with a new black costume that demonstrates some rather unsettling abilities. Seeking to let off some frustration, Spider-Man swings around town, even going as far as picking up an arguing young couple to show them the beauties of New York City. What is the secret of Spider-man's new outfit, and also, what consequences do the recent actions of the Black Cat hold in store for Spider-Man?
