Bonding with Venom: The Symbiote’s Recent History
Before starting the latest ‘Venom’ series on Marvel Unlimited, get caught up with Eddie Brock’s greatest and most terrifying turns.
HOMECOMING: VENOM (2016) #1-6
With the launch of the 2016 VENOM series from Mike Costa and Gerardo Sandoval, readers met Lee Price, a criminal who became the symbiote's new host. Exhibiting more control over Venom than previous partners, Price mixed it up with crime boss Black Cat... that is until Eddie Brock showed back up as the leader of the FBI's Anti-Symbiotic Task Force, a role that featured heavily in CARNAGE (2015). After stopping Price, though, Brock killed a guard, re-bonded with Venom, and escaped into the night!
LETHAL PROTECTOR: VENOM (2016) #150-158
As the VENOM numbering switched over to legacy issue #150, Brock became the star of the book, but he was still dealing with the damage that Price had done to his symbiote. Needing help, he turned to his old friend Liz Allan, then head of Alchemax. He also became the protector of a group of dinosaur-people living under New York City after dethroning Stegron which put him in direct opposition to Kraven the Hunter and Shriek who were after big game.
VENOM ISLAND: VENOM (2018) #21-25
After debriefing the Avengers on Knull, Brock realized his work wasn't done and returned to Isla de Huesos. He traveled to the “Island of Bones” to destroy the remaining portion of the Carnage symbiote he obtained, but that symbiote managed to infect Venom. After a plane crash, Eddie found himself separated from both, so he armed himself with more standard weaponry to fight the evil force. He wound up doing exactly that with some help from Dylan, who was half a world away, plus a T-Rex symbiote!
