Venom – Rex | Comics

Lethal Protector Venom and his human host Eddie Brock faces threat of a primeval evil but Miles Morales, Spider-Man stands in their way!

Eddie Brock is being haunted by recurring nightmares, visions of a past that he doesn't know off but somehow he realizes that it has something to do with his other. He sees a band of Norse warriors desperately tries to fight against a demonic force that comes to them in form of black tendrils and devours them all bursting through the doors.

He wakes up in the middle of the night in shock to find his Venom symbiote trying to hide in a corner. Turns out it was his other who had the nightmare and he then takes a handful of anti-psychosis pills to shut them down so he can think for a moment. With the pills starting to take effect, it gets furious and threatens Eddie to kill him in his sleep.

He never saw it react so violently, which is making him worried and then hearing to a police scanner, they quickly heads out to pursue a case on Jack O'Lantern that he has been working for months. However, rather than jumping in and break some bones, Brock just takes pictures that he can sell but the villain tries to escape by shooting a cop.

The symbiote takes over and ambushes to a fleeing Jack and the guy behind the pumpkin helmet is scared to death to see him. As it starts to gouge his eyes, cops come shooting from behind and the suit responds by turning into the monster from Eddie's nightmare, sporting a crimson spiral on forehead speaking an ancient alien language.

The suit loses control and attempts to attack the policemen but hit by an explosive bullet. Even though the shooter came looking for Flash Thompson, he takes Eddie and leaves. Gaining his senses back, Eddie realizes he is restrained in a dark room with a blast furnace in it and his captor knows well enough how to keep a symbiote at bay.

Venom – Rex | Comics

The man named Rex Strickland asks him if he knows anything about Project Rebirth 2.0 but Eddie only knows that the original program has created Captain America and a few years ago, the government restarted it to weaponize the Venom symbiote.

He believes that they wanted to create a new supersoldier program but Rex corrects him saying he is not the first but the latest. During Vietnam War, Strickland and his comrades were part of a Sym-Soldier Program. He got out and become an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. but his friends were permanently bonded and now he needs help to rescue them.

After the collapse of S.H.I.E.L.D., those four are being transported to be executed and to get some answers, Brock goes to rescue them. Ramming down one of the trucks, Venom sees four of them coming out with red spirals on forehead, speaking that same alien language and impales him when he lunges at them as his other leaves him.

Though it came back soon to heal him back and they both see their symbiotes leave while the hosts turn into corpses. His suit translates the ancient alien language to him as "God is coming" and then a massive dragon-like being is awaken from the ground. Seeing the creature go on a city-wide rampage after that, Eddie quickly rushes to the spot.

What he never expected was Spider-Man, Miles Morales sneaking up on him and Venom goes berserk on him by turning as one of those monsters from his dreams. Eddie somehow breaks through and Miles unloads a "Venom Blast" to free him from the corruption. The boy lost his parents to a symbiote and Brock assures him that it was not him.

Seeing the oncoming threat approaching to the city, they prepare for the final battle and Eddie plans on using Miles' Venom Blasts on the dragon. Their plan worked and the dragon falls. From inside it, a pale figure comes out grabbing the head of an unconscious Spidey and Venom goes full berserk on him when he crushes a patrol helicopter.

However, the entity blasts the symbiote off him and took it with him after introducing himself to Eddie Brock as Knull, God of the Symbiotes. He shows Brock the events of how he existed from before the beginning of universe, forged the first symbiote to slay a Celestial, before being cast away and coming back as a God to take away his suit.

Venom – Rex

Considering both writer Donny Cates (Doctor Strange – Damnation, Thanos – Thanos Wins) and artist Ryan Stegman (Inhuman – Genesis, Uncanny Avengers – Lost Future) are two of the hottest comic-book creators right now, Marvel Comics have picked them up for a Venom storyline like never before and they came up with "Rex" in 2018.

Collecting the first six issues from the fourth ongoing volume of Venom monthly series, "Rex" chronicles the history of Klyntar symbiote that started 1000 years ago out of the darkness of cosmos, its encounter with The Mighty Thor during Viking Age (Thor – God of Thunder) and introduces a powerful ancient God-like entity, Knull, Lord of the Abyss.

With The Avengers busy dealing with dead Celestials falling from sky (The Final Host) and the X-Men is nowhere to be found, Venom teams-up with Spider-Man, Miles Morales to face-off against a dragon-like symbiote collective called Grendel. Eddie has fought cancer, Carnage, Toxin and Anti-Venom but never faced anything like these new foes.

After facing Knull, the wicked web-slinger got some new power upgrades that'd come in handy in future. Also, involvement of S.H.I.E.L.D. in a Sym-Soldier Program from long ago is revealed. The plot twist at the end was somewhat unpredictable and seemingly leaves Eddie Brock without a purpose but he will be back in the upcoming arc.
