My symbiote tops, everyone should have one!

Profile Edit

Abilities Edit

Due to the fact that it was grafted to him first, the Symbiote bears many of Spider-Man’s unique abilities and passes them on to its next host. Eddie Brock had, previously to discovering the Symbiote, conditioned his body to lift up to seven hundred pounds. With the Symbiote’s assistance, he could lift up to eleven tons with little strain. He can also increase his strength & mass; Venom has evolved from being a stronger version of Spider-Man, to be able to trade punches with the likes of The Hulk or Juggernaut. He could also cling to walls and fire pieces of the Symbiotes’ substance as webbing at high pressure up to a distance of seventy feet. The tissue is regenerative, so Brock didn’t have to worry about losing the Symbiote as he fired the projectiles. The strands can be incredibly adhesive, and have a tensile strength of one hundred twenty-five pounds per square millimeter of cross section. Venom also possessed a power similar to that of Spider-Man’s “Spider Sense”, though it was more efficientive, as Venom's reflexes were more honed than Spider-Man's.

Venom was also extremely durable, and was able to take impact from small-arms fire with ease. However, the Symbiote is particularly vulnerable to sonic and heat-based attacks, though Venom has grown more of a tolerance over the years. The Symbiote could also blend itself in with the background.

Venom is also widely known for his extremely long tongue, which he could use like a prehensile tail. He is also capable of creating tendrils that he uses to ensnare the opponent, he is able to camouflage, and he also possesses venomous fangs. Venom can also shape-shift to mimic other people.

A side-effect when the Venom and any other Klyntarian symbiotes sync to a hosts' insane mind causes the symbiotes' mind to become insane as well, affecting any future hosts' minds, like when Deadpool bonded to the Venom symbiote, which affected the symbiote, causing the violent insanity to persist when it bonded with Spider-Man. The symbiotes’ nature depends on the hosts’ mind, influencing behaviors such as rage, mentalities and sudden illness.

Story Edit

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Edit

Soul Symbiote

The Venom Symbiote, enhanced by the Soul Stone.

While Venom has yet to make a physical appearance himself, the Symbiote plays a large part in the story as a source of power for Jedah and Dormammu. Jedah at some point use the Symbiote on a monster (presumably from Monster Hunter) transforming it into a Symbiote-enfused parasyte (that looks very similar to Venom) and summons it to fight the heroes. Black Suit Spider-Man also makes an appearance as an antagonist after Chris accidentally shots a Rocket Launcher on Symbiote, causing the liquid spills onto Spider-Man, controlling his body while fighting the monster, which does lead to the very likely possibility of Venom making an appearance later on.

Trivia Edit

  • Venom was given an alternate color palette for the MvC videogames different from his actual color in the comic books. In the MvC games, Venom is colored a light blue, rather than black or dark-blue as in the comics, however, one of his alternate sprites portray a dark-blue version of Venom. In addition, in the PSX version of MvC 1, if you select Venom with the R2 button, he will turn into the original black Venom.
  • His ending on MvC 1 shows him speaking to his partner about the battle versus Onslaught, saying that they will protect the innocent and battle evil, which the partner agrees to until Venom says that his partner will crush skulls and eat brains (which the partner shows themselves scared and disgusted).
    • If the partner is Spider-Man however, Spider-Man will just shrug his arms instead of being scared or disgusted.
  • In the Full Story Mode trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, the Symbiote makes a prominent appearance as an antagonistic force and even possesses Spider-Man into his Black Suit, likely indicating Venom's return.
