Venom's creation is due in part to a fan letter sent to Marvel's then editor-in-chief James Shooter. In the '80s, Marvel ran a competition for aspiring artists and writers. Twenty-two year old Randy Schueller sent a letter with an idea that Reed Richards, leader of the Fantastic Four, could create a new jet black costume made out of Unstable Molecules-- the very material of the Fantastic Four's costumes-- for Spider-Man.
Nonetheless, the description bares a striking resemblance to the iconic black Spider-Man outfit, barring the giant white spider symbol emblazoned on his chest Schueller opted for red, and classic Ditko underarm webbing. Evidently there were some hiccups and bumps, as Schueller decidedly did not get to write the script.
A year later, Secret Wars was released, the storyline that introduced the symbiote, and the rest is history. In its current incarnation, the symbiote suit is being used as a force for good. After losing his legs in Iraq, Flash seized the chance to don the symbiote, which would allow him to walk again and participate in clandestine missions for the US government.
As Agent Venom, Flash found a new lease on life. Agent Venom, by then a member of the Secret Avengers, was sent as an envoy to the Guardians Of The Galaxy so that the two groups could remain in close contact. In the animated '90s Spider-Man show and Spider-Man 3 , Peter Parker rejects the alien costume, because though it increases his powers, the cost of it is that it amplifies his darker, more aggressive side. The original run of the comic books suggest different, altogether creepier reasoning.

There was no explicit suggestion that Parker was getting more aggressive, despite the decidedly goth-y look. There was only the threat of the oozing life form consuming Peter like a snack. With the help of Reed Richards, Peter eventually rids himself of the symbiote. Though he continues to wear a black version of his traditional suit for a few years until, at the urging of his wife MJ, he goes back to the good old red and blue. Longtime Spider-Man writer David Michelinie originally wanted Venom to be a woman-- a pregnant woman.
She'd then go into labour on the street, losing her baby. After leaving the hospital, the rejected symbiote would bond to this grief-stricken mother.

Thus, Venom would be born. Although Brock's fury at the wall crawler was no doubt delicious to the symbiote, what also attracted the otherworldly entity to Brock was the massive amount of adrenaline he produced due to his cancer. The symbiote feeds off adrenaline, and for a time, Brock's cancer was kept at bay.

However, after Eddie Brock was separated from the symbiote, his cancer reemerged. The result was Anti-Venom, the inverse of Venom. In addition to the superhuman abilities that Venom possessed, Anti-Venom could cure a person from any illness. From Brock's haphazard character development to the random nature of the symbiote, nothing about his character worked like it ought to have, not when considering the wealth of comic book story material available. You can count on one hand the amount of times Venom is truly Venom in Spider-Man 3 , not just Topher Grace's unthreatening good looks poking through slimy prosthetics.
Nevertheless, there was a great amount of thought put into Venom's movements and sounds-- i. When he screeches, that's the sound of a Tasmanian devil you're hearing, and his lunges and stances take inspiration from panthers and cheetahs. What makes Venom so threatening is also his biggest achilles heel: he just wants to put Spider-Man six feet under.
To end the gruelling battle with both their lives intact, Spider-Man fakes his death. Peter Parker by then is safely at a distance, hoping that Eddie Brock has finally found his peace. For a time, Eddie Brock did find some peace. It wasn't long before Venom, ravenous and vicious as ever, was back in the picture. A th instalment of any series calls for something major and game changing.
The th Amazing Spider-Man comic book series changed everything by giving us our first proper look at Venom, who heretofore had been stealthily terrorising Spider-Man from the shadows. The issue included a lengthy introduction to the new hulking menace and his vengeful motives, some classic Peter Parker money woes, and Spider-Man's long overdue triumphant return to the traditional red and blue duds.
The final caption all but promises more issues and beyond -- " The legend begins anew. The issue remains a must-read for all Spidey fans, casual or otherwise. Venom got the R-rated treatment back in with the unofficial short fan-movie Truth In Journalism. Enraged and paranoid, Brock allows himself to be taken over by the dark, oozing symbiote within, and kills the crew.
A bonus scene at the end shows a nosy Brock stumbling upon Daredevil villain Bullseye making a snuff movie. Venom is undoubtedly a cool name for a villain. It's striking, mean, and to the point. Venom means poison. It means your days are numbered, pal. Spider-Man made a laughing stock out of respected journalist Eddie Brock. His source was supposedly the Sin-Eater himself. However, Spider-Man exposed the real Sin-Eater and Brock's source was revealed to be a serial confessor.
With no self-respecting outlet willing to hire Eddie Brock, he was forced to write "venomous" drivel for gossip rags. The parasitic alien substance known as the symbiote didn't just bond to Spider-Man for sustenance. Most of the rules are familiar and easy to share with others.
