Venom (Marvel)(02 - Angelo Fortunato)
Real Name: Angelo Fortunato
Search for 'Venom (Marvel)(02 - Angelo Fortunato)' on Amazon

As Venom, Angelo has super strength, speed and reflexes. The symbiote can produce tendrils that can be used as whips and hooks, change shape to resemble any form and color of clothing or enabling cameoflage with background colors and textures, and generate organic webbing. It should be noted, however, that though Angelo had acess to all these powers, his inexperience with using them caused him to be a bit unwieldy.

Angelo Fortunato was often humiliated by his criminal father, organized crime boss Don Fortunato. He was bullied by other people of his age and mistreated by everyone he met. When Eddie Brock had a Christian revelation and wished to die clean, he auctioned off the Venom symbiote. Hoping to make his son a man, Don Fortunato bought it for Angelo. Angelo hoped to become famous and strong with the Venom symbiote. When he donned it, he attacked Spider-Man at a high school reunion and killed one of his classmates (Seymour Reilly) in an effort to prove himself to his father. Angelo seemed to have access to the skills that Eddie Brock had taken months to learn, but due to his inexperience he was unable to use them to their full potential. He fought with a fury, but was eventually defeated. Rather than go to jail, Angelo tried to run away. The symbiote, viewing him a coward, dropped Angelo in mid-air and let him fall to his death. It later bonded to Mac Gargan.
