Bitten by a radioactive spider, high school student Peter Parker gained the speed, strength and powers of a spider. Adopting the name Spider-Man, Peter hoped to start a career using his new abilities. Taught that with great power comes great responsibility, Spidey has vowed to use his powers to help people.

With great power, there must also come great responsibility, and when those in power abuse it, it’s the people’s responsibility to remove them. The year is 1933, and New York City is not-so-secretly run by corrupt politicians, crooked cops, big businesses…and suave gangland bosses like New York’s worst, the Goblin. But when a fateful spider-bite gives the young rabble-rouser Peter Parker the power to fight the mobster who killed his Uncle Ben, will even that be enough?
During the “Web of Carnage” arc, Ben Reilly is bonded with the Carnage Symbiote when it escapes from the Ravencroft Institute, where its psychopathic host, Cletus Kasady, is being held, through the asylum’s water pipes. Ben struggles for control of himself, and tries to prevent the symbiote from taking over, the subsequent inner battle with the creature ends when he has John Jameson take him to a cell designed to hold Carnage, willingly subjects himself to a potentially fatal dose of microwave radiation to try to kill the symbiote, which returns to Cletus via the pipes.

Thanks to a few members of the Toyark forum, we know that a few new Marvel Legends 3.75″ Figures were popping up on Ebay last week. Now Hasbro has posted up official pages for two newly revealed Marvel Legends 3.75″ Scale Figures. This includes a new Black Panther and (I believe) a new Spider-Man. Both characters feature comic style designs, full articulation, but no accessories. The Spider-Man is of a suit I am not personally familiar with. It features no spider logo on the chest at all and much more blue than the classic costume.
The Spider-Man suit is based on the Marvel Comics story arc House of M. Thanks to Spyne98 for the clarification.
