2011-03-07 11:49:01 aaronmoish Bio Eddie Brock was a reporter who blamed Spider-Man for debunking his prize story, the Sin-Eater case, humiliating Brock and ruining his career, forcing him to find work with dirt-sheet gossip magazines. Attracted by his intense hatred of Spider-Man the symbiote bonded with Brock. When bonded, Venom speaks using the first person plural case (we), signifying that Eddie Brock and the symbiote are two separate entities joined together - although, on occasion, Eddie refers to it as 'My symbiote and I'. When he had devoured the original Carnage symbiote, he even referred to himself as '...one big, happy family'. They fought Spider-Man many times, and came close to winning on several occasions. As well as fueling Brock's rage against Spider-Man, the symbiote allowed him to indulge in a sporadic career as a vigilante. After switching back and forth a number of times-either helping Spider-Man or fighting against him, Brock sold the symbiote to Don Fortunato after he discovered he had a brain tumor. Venoms first apearance was in "The Incredible Hulk" vol. 3 issue #36.

2008-07-14 13:45:26 insidestraight Notes The creature that would ultimately become Venom was born to a race of extra-terrestrial parasites, which lived by possessing the bodies of other lifeforms. The parasites would endow their victims with enhanced physical abilities, yet at the cost of fatally draining them of adrenaline. According to the Planet Of The Symbiotes storyline, the Venom symbiote was deemed insane by its own race after it was discovered that it desired to commit to its host rather than use it up. The symbiote was then imprisoned on Battleworld to ensure it didn't pollute the species gene pool. The symbiote made its first appearance in Marvel Super-Heroes Secret Wars (1984).

2007-04-08 18:53:06 Ace Paladin Powers Though it requires a living host in order to survive, the Venom symbiote has been shown on some occasions to be able to fend for itself with its own set of unique powers. The symbiote is telepathic and does not require physical contact in order to influence the minds of others. In Planet Of The Symbiotes, the creature, after being rejected by its host, emits a psychic scream which has the effect of driving nearby humans to states of extreme depression. Later, with the assistance of Eddie Brock, it emits an even more powerful variant of that power which results in the mass suicide of an invasive force of symbiotes. Though the symbiote has rejected its species habit of consuming its hosts, it still requires certain chemicals found in living brain tissue (most likely phenethylamine) in order to survive. When starved of these chemicals, the symbiote develops a mutable exoskeleton, allowing it to form its own solid body which it uses to hunt and kill prey without the assistance of a host.

2007-04-08 18:53:06 Ace Paladin Notes -The Venom character was originally planned to be a woman bonded with Spiderman's discarded suit, but Marvel's Editors decided to make him the male Eddie Brock after hearing arguments that a female villain wouldn't make as much of a splash in Amazing #300 as a male villain would.
