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.

Ancient Symbiote God

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.

Amazing Spider-Man – Red Goblin | Comics

One of Spider-Man's greatest enemies meets with another to form an unholy bond and get back at him by threatening everyone close to him.

Due to previous unfortunate events, Peter Parker had to ruin Parker Industries and everything it was built on in order to prevent Doctor Octopus or Hydra from misusing any of it. Currently, he is crashing at the couch of S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Bobbi Morse AKA Mockingbird when he is not fighting crime.

Aside from that, his adventure as Spider-Man continues and he managed to get a job as Daily Bugle's science section editor. By this time, two mercenaries breach at underwater containment facility called Lock Box to secure a package and releases an artifact known as Zodiac Key.

A year ago, on the same day, Spidey had thrown out the villainous Scorpio into Zodiac Dimension for a year after he gained a year worth of prior knowledge of future. On the same day, Lock Box is breached and he got out while gaining the key as well.

He is eventually taken down and he warns before going to prison that something is coming for the Wall-Crawler, which he brushes off. Elsewhere, those mercenaries arrive to their employer with the package, which turned out to be the Carnage symbiote and the boss being Norman Osborn.

Then he would be called upon to by the current Sorcerer Supreme, Loki in absence of Doctor Strange. Years ago, he owed Spidey a favor and he just wanted to return it now but after a brief adventure together, the latter used it in most unexpected way Laufeyson could ever think of.

Meanwhile, Osborn unleashed the symbiote after repeatedly failing to restore his madness by mystical, psychological or surgical ways. It tries to take over but he offered to teach it becoming more sadistic starting with killing two of his own henchmen.

Carnage is intrigued by Osborn's method of torturing and wanted more but Norman agrees to that for being in full control. Not only does it repair his facial appearance, the symbiote ejected all nanites from his body that was stopping him from becoming Green Goblin.

Alchemax C.E.O. Liz Allan asks Flash Thompson to be present as Agent Anti-Venom during one of their upcoming presentation. There, Phil Urich showed up as Goblin King with his minions, which results in a fight and Peter ended up hitting the jackpot with Mary Jane Watson after the fight.

Peter and Mary Jane were at her apartment passionately making out and reminiscing about their past times together but then remember about their reason for splitting up seeing his costume underneath. Liz asks Flash again to try and retrieve the exploding metal tritium from Goblin King.

In one of his abandoned his gentleman's club, Osborn was talking to someone about Spider-Man whom he abducted and had blindfolded. Hearing some noise downstairs, he goes to check and confronts Phil, who he kills by ripping his heart out when Goblin King attacked him with a flame sword.

Norman came back monologuing to his prisoner explaining how he is going to deal with the Wall-Crawler but his hostage pointed out how Green Goblin has failed over and over in past only to fail each time and accidentally spills a hint.

With that, he managed to deduce the secret identity of the hero and his captive is revealed to be none other than J. Jonah Jameson. He then raids into Daily Bugle looking for the Web-Head and these two gets into a fight. GG threatened everyone with tritium explosives and Spidey managed to contain the blast.

Osborn got impaled on a girder and faking his dying state, he calls Parker near to thank him. Then he turned into a goblin/symbiote hybrid called Red Goblin. With his newfound power, Carnage/Goblin proves to overwhelming for Spider-Man alone.

He offers to leave him alone if he gives up being hero or kill each and everyone he loves. Even with help from his friends Anti-Venom, Clash, Human Torch, Miles Morales and Silk, Pete didn't stand a chance.

Amazing Spider-Man – Red Goblin

Despite Spider-Man having an impressive Rogue's Gallery, his villains can get a bit repetitive over times. In 2018, Marvel Comics hired writer Christos Gage (Civil War – House of M, House of M – Avengers) and Dan Slott (She-Hulk, Silver Surfer) to solve that problem in "Red Goblin" storyline.

Artists Jim Cheung (Avengers – The Children's Crusade, New Avengers – Illuminati), Giuseppe Camuncoli (Darth Vader – Imperial Machine, Darth Vader – Legacy's End) and Stuart Immonen (Fear Itself, Inferno) delivered illustrations for issues # 794-801 of Amazing Spider-Man monthly ongoing series.

Go Down Swinging

Green Goblin has been a terrible menace who terrorized Peter Parker on personal level and in his super-heroism. Carnage is another psychopath who is nearly as ruthless but a lot more chaotic. When two of these terrible personas merges and creates a new one, it surely is a live horror show. With a slow build-up, the plot eventually delivers more twists and turns than readers have probably bargained for.

Throughout the arc, references of the events from One More Day, Secret Empire and The Clone Conspiracy were made. Apparently, it took place between "Hunt For Wolverine" and "Return of Wolverine" crossover events and Wolverine even showed up in a cameo in the first issue of the story.

All-New, All-Different Avengers – Family Business | Comics

A "Standoff" at Pleasant Hill between All-New, All-Different Avengers and Uncanny Avengers takes place before a trip to a prison planet!

The Mighty Thor has joined a new assembly of The Avengers earlier while trying to foil a plot by Kang the Conqueror and was separated from Mjolnir shortly, which revert her back to Jane Foster. None of her teammates knew of her identity but now it has been revealed to Sam Wilson, All-New Captain America but he kept it a secret.

He even came to visit her during one of her chemotherapy sessions before heading back to an emergency. Vision tries to make peace with Ms. Marvel and sneaks into her school to talk about their past differences. Iron Man and Thor then heads to apprehend a villain named Night Phantom who was busy fighting Spider-Man, Miles Morales.

Before he is taken down, he asks about "Pleasant Hill" and when Maria Hill of S.H.I.E.L.D. arrives to take over, she completely tries to ignore it until Cap gives them more bad news coming from there. They ride into a Quinjet to reach Connecticut and Hill starts firing at members of Avengers Unity Division upon seeing them with another "Maria Hill".

Cable sends Quicksilver and Rogue to tackle them for this uncalled attack on them that ended up crushing the Quinjet. Still in confusion, both team starts fighting each other as a wall closes in on them that turns out to be a snowdome. Tony and his friends later regain sense in a world where they were not aware of their truer selves at all.

Soon, inhabitants of Pleasant Hill started to gain their memory and assembled together but the villains also broke free of captivity to attack them. Deadpool decided to reach out to Kobik, a Cosmic Cube fragment that took the form of a human child, who can rewrite reality and made her restore everyone back to how they were before.

Now residing and operating from an abandoned hangar, Avengers seem to come under attack and then revealed to be The Wasp who is not Janet Van Dyne at all. She turns out to be Nadia Pym, estranged daughter of Hank Pym who was raised in Red Room and was studying Pym Particles, which helped her make a break out of there.

She initially went to see her father who deceased earlier in an attempt to stop Ultron and came to meet her father's allies. Though Edwin Jarvis was dismissive about her, he took her to meet her stepmother Jan after she helped Vision from exploding and blowing up everyone by going superthermal as an after-effects of his encounter with Kang.

Nova informs the team about going after his father who he has been looking for ever since he joined the Corps and Tony offers their aid. Together they journeyed through space in an old overdrive unit that is powered by Thor's hammer and guided by Nova's helmet only to arrive at a barren planet that is littered with other wrecked ships.

On arrival, their ship is shot down from a lighthouse-esque tower but they managed to successfully land in time among a crowd of alien refugees. Iron Man and Lady Thor go to investigate the tower when an energy cloud appears out of nowhere to grab any life-form it come across and The Avengers just jumped into it.

Finding herself shacked on the other side; Ms. Marvel tries to break free despite warnings from Nova and Spider-Man only to be crushed down by Annihilus, Lord of the Negative Zone! Vision fared no better under an anti-matter sun of the galactic prison planet with only Goddess of Thunder keeping him from unleashing a Techtronicon cannon.

Years after, they are still friends and helps out each other in times when needed. So, Wanda Maximoff was expecting her ex one evening who wanted to talk about something he needs help with.

He opens up about how he is having hallucinating lately about an earlier era when he joined The Avengers and met her, including Black Panther, Captain America, Goliath, Hawkeye and even his creator Ultron.

Though Wanda suspects for him having some memory malfunction, he reveals that he even had such instances with recently deceased people that he failed to save. Vision points out the problem was not within his memory but strong emotions for her deeply rooted within his system that he had to purge, which have her taken aback.

Months after entire universe was restored following "Time Runs Out" and "Secret Wars" event, there was no longer a team of Avengers.

He stumbles onto Tony, who then heads back to the scene in his Iron Man armor by transforming his car.

Guided by Gryphon, he managed to open a portal to invite an invading army from his homeworld but interrupted shortly by a bolt of lightning from Goddess of Thunder. Seeing them all being overpowered by his superior might, Iron Man sees no way other than they open portal and close it as soon as they send him back.

Gryphon secretly attempts to help Warbringer but he is soon pushed to other side by his nemesis, the Human Rocket. Tony reassembled an All-New Avengers team with a diverse cast of heroes and everyone is happy. However, Vision seems to act out of character now that he has purged his emotions and even blackmails young Nova.
