    So the weird suit-symbiote had nothing to do with Scorpion getting a regular symbiote later? Did they ever explain why "Captain Power" had some kind of symbiote and wanted to kill Peter Parker?

Nope, it had nothing to do with what happened later. In fact, other than the oddly splotchy art effect when the Scorpion got it, the suit he wears in ASM v.2 #1 displays none of the properties of a symbiote and appears to be metallic armor of some sort. It even goes "Fkoom!" when he gets it from his mysterious benefactor....symbiotes don't usually "Fkoom!" when bonding to a host.

More broadly, anything that happens in those Byrne-drawn issues of ASM or Spider-Man....is pretty much guaranteed to have zero impact on anything down the line. The editors and writers essentially want to pretend those stories, and their copious Chapter One references, never happened.

Really, the only thing from that era that's stuck in the books was Sandman returning to crime...and even that was chalked up to the Wizard brainwashing him, not to Byrne's initial "he was faking his reform all along" version.
