Venomm had control over snakes, he built up a tolerance to most types of snake venom. He is also very skilled with a bullwhip.
Bio: Horatio Walters was a hideously scarred and colorless human snake-charmer with a hideous and corpse-like face. He was recruited in America by Erik Killmonger to help in his revolution to overthrow the Black Panther's rule of Wakanda. Venomm was smuggled into the country and put in charge of Killmonger's Death Regiments. Killmonger promised that his new regime would be a place in which Venomm would find a place where he could carry on his reptilian practices and a place where he would be accepted.
Venomm was always a loner. When he was young, he thought the name was quite poetic until scorn and deprision killed the poetry in him. One day in junior high, another student threw acid into his face. During childhood, rejection was not something he could understand... and as an adult it became a force he could not face.
Venomm was badly disfigured and became a recluse. Being shunned by everyone around him he turned to another creature that was shunned, snakes.
He spent those remaining years building an immunity to the toxic effect of these reptiles that have become as a second skin to him. He finally obtained an immunity to all but the most poisonous serpents. Originally, Venomm was an ally of Killmonger; later he allied with the Black Panther.
