Marvel has just announced that they will be releasing a summer event Venomverse comic series returning the symbiote to Eddie Brock. Venom always made such a great Spider-Man villian because of the moral dynamics between them. Peter Parker is this innocent kid with a strong moral compass “with great power comes great responsibility” whereas Eddie Brock is a serial liar with a superiority complex, combine that with the powers of the symbiote and you have the antithetical villian.
The reason for this new series as Devin Lewis explains is because the editorial team saw an opportunity “to put Venom back on Earth, but also to re-centralize him as a Spider-Man villian”.
So, what can you expect from Venomverse? According to Cullen Bunn and Devin Lewis:
“There are definitely some horrific moments in this series, not just the gross-out or the jump scare. I think there’s some real emotional horror aspects to this story. The threat they’re dealing with has some pretty strong horror chops [..] Eddie’s not a hero, but he is the Venom that’s most needed at this moment. This story will show why he’s the best Venom that there is” says Cullen Bunn.
“The story that Cullen’s managed to craft here is absolutely terrific. As much as it’s about the symbiotes and the Poisons, it’s also about identity and trust. Cullen’s managed to make this an epic story in scope and an intimate story in regards to character” says Devin Lewis.
