This scene has a philosophical dialogue about revenge and forgiveness.

And Spider-Man is infected with a symbiote, an extraterrestrial life that came out of a meteorite that fell to Earth.

The distinctive red and blue outfit turns black.

A page from a Marvel Comics Spider-Man comic book featuring the first Spider-Man in black has set an all-time high at auction.

The auction, which started at $330,000, was sold at $3.36 million, more than ten times, for about 3.99 billion won in Korean currency.

This is an original black-and-white work drawn by famous cartoonist Mike Zeck, a scene from the 8th issue of ‘Secret Wars’ published in 1984.

Spider-Man is loved all over the world.

A movie released last month has grossed over 1 trillion won for the first time since December 2019.

In Korea, it has surpassed 6.7 million viewers for the first time since the pandemic.

Other comics traded that day are also a hot topic.

‘Action Comics’ No. 1, which contains Superman’s first appearance, also sold for about 3.78 billion won, making it the fourth most expensive comic book ever.
