An amorphous alien organism that bound itself to multiple hosts, the first of which was Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man. It fed on Peter's negativity to influence him to make brash choices and nearly bring people intense harm. Peter fought to remove the Symbiote and its influence from his body, an when he succeeded, it found a larger, much stronger host in Eddie Brock, and later Mac Gargan (previously known as Scorpion). In the muscular form of Venom, it is distinguished by its razor sharp teeth and long, lashing tongue, as well as web-slinging abilities learned from its time with Peter. Bound with intense hatred for Spider-Man, Venom will pursue chaos wherever it may be, and will stop at nothing to ruin Peter's personal life.
