The Black Spiderman Story.

In August of 1982, 22 year old Marvel Comics fan Randy Schueller received the following letter from then editor-in-chief of Marvel Comics, James Shooter. The letter states 'I want to buy it', and was sent in response to an idea Randy had submitted to Shooter's offices; an idea which resulted in Spider-Man donning a black costume for the first time in issue 8 of Secret Wars. Over the years this evolved to become Venom, the symbiote which starred in 2007's Spider-Man 3. Randy was happily paid $220.00 for his input.
