"The darkness that shrouds this city is nothing!
Nothing! Not compaired to the shroud that Spider-Man pulled over me! He
stole my life...shattered it...then tossed it away like yesterday's news!
So it is only fair, that I do the same to him!" Venom,
Amazing Spider-Man # 298
Enter the Madman, The beginning
of a Legend Eddie Brock began his
career in Marvel Comics as an up and coming Journalist working for the
very successful Daily Globe. Eddie's life was forever to change when he
began writing a series of articles on a new and dangerous villain called,
" The Sin-Eater." A man by the name of Emil Gregg upon reading Eddie Bock's
articles decided that he would falsely proclaim to Eddie that he was indeed
the Sin-Eater. Even in today's society, many people do as Emil did in order
to seek out some form of attention. These people by and large are generally
looking for attention from a society that has ignored them. Eddie started
documenting the stories that Emil was feeding him and eventually he was
asked by the Police to revile who the man claiming to be the Sin-Eater
was so that they would be able to stop the murders that were being committed.
Eventually, caving in to the pressure and doing what he thought was right,
Eddie wrote a brilliant article on the identity of what was thought by
him to be the real Sin-Eater. Ironically, within a few hours, Spider-Man
captured the real Sin-Eater and unmasked him. The Sin-Eater was not Emil
Gregg but a deranged Police Officer by the name of Stan Carter. Due to
Eddie's articles about the Sin-Eater, the Daily Globe became a laughing
stock and eventually Eddie Brock was fired from the paper as a reporter.
The humiliation and embarrassment were too much for Eddie to handle therefore
he seriously contemplated suicide as a means of escape from his problems
and from the stress which was brought on by the events which had led up
to this point. Eddie, being a devote catholic was well aware that in Catholicism,
committing suicide was considered as a sin, therefore, he traveled from
church to church to pray for his own soul in an attempt at redemption.
During his visit to the Lady of Saints church, Eddie ended up bonding with
the Symbiotic alien that Spider-Man believed to be dead. Eddie and his
new found , "Other", began calling themselves Venom, and they decided that
it would be a good idea to kill Spider-Man. Hence the beginning of a legend
and the birth of a madman.
