Venom suggests Marvel’s best symbiote could become deadliest
A preview of Venom # 2 hints that Marvel’s first symbiote could revert to its old villainous ways, becoming a danger to Eddie Brock’s son.
The first issue of the recent Venom Relaunch has left readers with plenty of questions, and a preview for the next issue hints that there may be some underlying evil to the heroic symbiote.
The previous Venom run was directed by writer Donny Cates from 2018-2021, and featured artwork by Ryan Stegman primarily for the series and events like Absolute carnage and The king in black. Under the Creation Team, Eddie Brock has grown from a lonely loner battling his inner demons to a father and god ruling the symbiote race, the Klyntar. With a new creative team – writers Al Ewing, Ram V. and artist Bryan Hitch – at the helm, Marvel Universe’s newest Venom, Dylan Brock, is alone with no one he can trust, including the symbiote to which it is linked. To.
The previous issue featured the apparent death of Eddie Brock, or at least his physical body, since his conscious mind seems to have reached another place in time. This is also not the first time that Eddie has died recently. In The king in black # 2, Eddie’s flat lines, with Venom # 32 revealing her mind had become part of the Symbiote Hive Mind. Now that Eddie is the King in Black after defeating the ancient Symbiote God Knull, he can control the Hive Spirit and transfer his consciousness to multiple Symbiotes at once, as revealed Venom # 200.
However, Eddie is still unable to be physically present with his son, Dylan, who bonded to the Venom symbiote after watching his father die in the blast, fighting dozens of soldiers apparently responsible. However, the Venom symbiote appears to be acting strangely in the preview. After 35 issues explored his close bond and relationship with Eddie, the preview features a rather direct dialogue from the symbiote to his former host, claiming that Eddie is now “nothing but dust and bones. “.
Of course, the sequence takes place in the dreams of Dylan, who may not remember the incident with such precision. One rule he had with Eddie was that he wouldn’t bond with the symbiote or have any issues, which he broke after several Eddie Brocks contacted him and one of them was dead, forcing him to run away and be alone. Still, the preview implies that Eddie was not only making a rule with Dylan, but warning him about the symbiote itself. The overview and solicitation for the problem can be found below.
