A Few Facts About Venom
It all stared with a simple mistake. While
participating in the first SecretWar,Spider-Man really trashed his
costume. He comes across two other heroes who earlier had similar problems
and was told that ther is a wonderous machine the can make any article
of clothing you can think of. Unfortunatly for poor Spidey, they
neglected to tell him where to find it. Spider-Man did find a devise
that he thought looked like "it wants to make a costume". It produced a
small, black ball that initially set off his spider-sense as he
picked it up. The ball oozed over the confused hero and became the
black costume. Spider-Man wore the costume for a few months, enjoying the
fact that it produced its own webbing and could change to mimic
his civilian cloths. This all came to an end when Spider-Man discovered
his niftey new threds were actually an alien symbiote trying to
bond to him permenently. Mr. Fantastic seperated the two with his "sonic
blaster" and captured the symbiote for study. It should be noted
that during the period that Spider-Man wore the alien costume there
was evidence that the symbiote somehow fed on his adrenline. The costume
escaped and reloined Spider-Man briefly, but the hero tried to kill
the symbiote useing the bell tower of a church. The plan worked
too well and the symbiote saved Spidey's life before hiding itself in the
The other half of this future combo, Eddie Brock, was the star investigative reporter for the Daily Globe. Eddie was a particularly driven man; driven to seek the approval of his stone hearted father. So it stands to reason that when his biggest scope, a man confeesing to be the then active Sin-Eater, was exposed as a fraud when the real Sin-Eater was captured by Spider-Man that Brock went a little over the edge. The paper fired him, his father disowned him, and his marriage ended. Brock's mind locked onto Spider-Man as the source of all his woes and thus began Brock's burning hatred of the Wall-Crawler. But life continued to deal harshly to Brock and soon he decided to comitt suicide. Stopping by a church to pray before he did the fateful deed, Brocks intense hatred of Spider-Man was noticed by the symbiote who had been hidden there since its last confrontation with Spider-Man. The two bonded and became Venom.
Venom has battled Spider-Man, & anyone else who gets in his way, numerous times since then. Brock sees himself as a hero, protecting innocents from the "evil" Spider-Man. In truth Venom has acted as a hero on several occassions, but he believes anyone he sees as "evil" should die, and this puts him in the same dubbious category as the Punisher. He still hates Spider-Man, but now reguards him as a nessecary evil since the Wall-Crawler also protectsthe "innocent". Venom desperately hates his "son", Carnage, who he sees as a perversion of all that he is. Venom serves a homeless community of "under people" in San Fransisco as their "protector". Make no mistake that Venom is insane. But recent signs in Brock's behavior during their recent seperation at the hands of the Scarlet-Spider would indicate that the symbiote is pushing Brock to be more violent.
