During Marvel Comics' retailer-only panel Thursday morning at Chicago's C2E2 convention, Marvel Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski showed interior pages from May's Amazing Spider-Man #800 revealing that Peter Parker will once again don his black Spider-Man suit.

What's more, Peter will apparently remain in the black suit into writer Nick Spencer and artist Ryan Ottley's Amazing Spider-Man #1 "Fresh Start" relaunch. The previously revealed cover for that series showed Peter in his classic red and blue look.

The black costume first appeared in 1984 as the alien symbiote that would eventually become Venom. Peter has since occassionally worn a non-symbiote version of the costume, usually in times of great peril or tragedy.
