Spider-Man Annual 1 CGC 9.8 NM/MT Clayton Crain Scorpion Comics Variant. Clayton Crain delivers yet again on the cover art while the symbiote posing as Spider-Man's black suit recounts how it awakened from darkness in the midst of a secret war!
Imprisoned and hungry for battle, it was unwittingly freed by Spider-Man and bonded to him, eventually returning with its "friend" to Earth. The symbiote happily notes that it's never had someone so kind as a host before and wants to permanently bond with him. Spider-Man meets with Black Cat and gushes about how awesome his new alien costume is, but she remarks that its autonomous nature sounds creepy and advises he remove it until he can get Mister Fantastic to examine it, flirtatiously offering to help. They arrive at an old warehouse where Hammerhead and his gang are stashing high-power weaponry, crashing though the skylight.The symbiote notes that its host is brave and strong, but his mind is troubled with insignificant worries: Peter gets into an argument with Joe Robertson, having been out of touch while dealing with "personal business, " and is put on-notice. Visiting his Aunt May, Peter brushes aside her concerns that something is wrong, causing her to scold him for lying to her; and Black Cat threatens to break up with him for being two hours late for their patrol, though Spider-Man apologizes and tells her he feels his life is spiraling out of control. Noticing that even while he sleeps its host fears every minor decision will result in disaster, the symbiote eagerly decides to help by bonding to Peter while he sleeps and setting off into the night to fight crime. Noting that its host desires to protect those weaker than himself, the symbiote resolves to do the same; finding a woman in the midst of being mugged.
The would-be purse-snatcher pulls a gun, but the symbiote webs his hand and proceeds to pummel him to death, the woman passing out in horror at the grotesque display of violence. Satisfied by a job well-done, the symbiote departs thinking to itself that its host would be pleased by what it's done.Peter awakens the following afternoon feeling exhausted despite sleeping most of the day away. Hearing a knock at his apartment door, he opens it to see Mary Jane Watson, who expresses concern at his disheveled appearance and invites him out for dinner. MJ asks Peter if he hasn't been sleeping, but Peter responds that he has; causing her to tell him to go see a doctor. As he heads home, the symbiote notes that he's consumed by thoughts regarding his old life and his old costume. Annoyed and determined to prove itself superior to his red-and-blues, the symbiote covers him again to do the work he would have wanted.
Arriving at a jewelry store burglary, the symbiote viciously attacks the robbers, feeding Spider-Man dreams of saving his Uncle Ben and rescuing Gwen Stacy so that he won't wake up and be alarmed.
