For example, Spiderman's original concept for his suit was black and red (to match the colors of a black widow) but to show highlights, comic artists back then had to use blue because there were only 8 ink colors and white was the most expensive so it needed to be used sparingly. Batman went through the same problem (his suit being black with blue showing highlights) so that's why Spidy (at least Peter Parker anyway) is now red and blue, but Batman stayed black.
