It's been a while since we've last talked about someone in the 'Spidey' theme. Today I've decided to take a look at one of my favorite Spiderman villains 'Venom'.

When we refer to Venom we could be talking about two different things. Some say Venom is the boy called Eddie Brock, who was the second victim of the symbiote virus after Peter Parker himself. Others claim that Venom is what the symbiote virus calls itself.

To be clear the symbiote virus is alien and feeds from it's host adrenaline. It grants the host spider-like powers but the more it feeds the more influence it gets on the host until the host has no saying anymore. The virus can split up and take over different hosts at a time. Some notable hosts in Marvel history are Flash Thompson, Peter's friend and later army Corporal. He actually uses the Virus for the good as an agent. Also career criminal Mac Gargan who uses it's powers to join the dark avengers.


The virus is quit dangerous in the wrong hands. Once it chose a host called Cletus Kasady who was a psycho serial killer. By choosing this unstable host the virus created an unstable version of itself and turned in the blood thirsty Carnage.

The greatest weakness of the virus is high pitched noises and tones. It's greatest strength is that it's able to infect anyone. In one of the story lines it even infects the Hulk! (below) In a other story line the Guardians of the Galaxy landed on a planet full of symbiote viruses.
