Venom | Comics
On Battleworld, during "Secret Wars", Spider-Man received a new alien black costume when his original one was damaged. Back on Earth, he realized that his new costume is a sentient "Friend" from outer space. It was actually an extraterrestrial species from the Andromeda Galaxy and is known as Klyntar. Meanwhile, Spidey also discovered its vulnerability to sound and flame. When the symbiote started acting weirdly, Peter removed it with help of Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four and then permanently got rid of it on the bell tower of a church. This act however develops a natural bitterness in it that is also passed into the symbiote’s future hosts and soon it merges with reporter Eddie Brock and took the name Venom, a new villain for Spider-Man.

Because of the hatred both Eddie and the symbiote shared, they start antagonizing Spider-Man as well as haunting him in his personal life. Venom fought Spidey on many occasion and eventually came to help him sometimes. As the Klyntar is capable of mutation and developing many other abilities, it has created a different line of feral offspring like Carnage, Toxin and Zzxz. When he was diagnosed with cancer, Eddie sold the symbiote to Angelo Fortunato’s dad and it moved to the second-string villain Mac Gargan, who had fun with it (Sinister Spider-Man). Following the Siege of Asgard, Gargan and his suit was taken to U.S. Military custody that would later be given to their crippled operative Corporal Flash Thompson as a part of Project Rebirth 2.0.

Originally introduced on the pages of Amazing Spider-Man #252 by Marvel Comics as a new costume of Spider-Man in 1984, the alien symbiote that would later take the alias Venom by issue #300 in 1988 is one of the greatest enemies that everyone’s favorite wall-crawler has ever faced. Venom eventually became an anti-hero who aside from teasing Spidey would later become a vigilante as well as his own monthly ongoing series after having numerous limited series of his own. Created by David Michelinie, Mike Zeck and Todd McFarlane (Haunt, Image United), Venom’s immense popularity has brought him to many animated adaptation of Spider-Man TV Series and games. The character also made a live-action appearance on the 2007 film Spider-Man 3, where actor Topher Grace played Venom in an antagonist role of Eddie Brock.
