secret wars is where the original symbiote "Venom" first appeared. That's what the black suit is.

As a kid, I remember the shock of Doom claiming the powers of the Beyonder, and how cool it was to see him without the mask (it had never been done, at that time).

Of course, there was also the action figures (aka the main reason for this series, basically copying DC's "Super Powers" strategy), and their cutting edge lenticular shields.
