Today We Will List Down The Top 10 Marvel Characters, Excluding Peter Parker, Who Have Donned The Symbiote Suit
The enormous Secret Wars event that Marvel held in the 1980s was intended to be a one-time thing, but it had a lasting impact on how significant Marvel comics were produced for years to come. The Secret Wars event will ultimately receive its own live-action adaptation in the MCU’s upcoming phases. In an effort to give the plot more weight, they used the chance to change Spider-Man’s attire into a black and white suit with some awesome qualities like endless webbing and superhuman strength.
Later versions of the symbiote story would emphasize how it made Spider-Man more violent, but at the time, the main concern was that it was manipulating his brain while he slept, and the thought of it being alive horrified Peter to no end. Spider-Man got rid of the black suit on his own.
Sam Raimi’s 2007 film Infamous: Spider-Man 3 was the first to adapt the black suit narrative for the big screen. Eventually, Sony produced their own Venom movies, starring Tom Hardy as Eddie Brock. Making no mention of Peter Parker in the story.
With Holland’s Spider-Man, the MCU has finally hinted at a black suit saga during the Spider-Man: No Way Home’s end credits scene.
Today we will list down the Top 10 Marvel characters, excluding Peter Parker, who have donned the symbiote suit.
When Reed Richards detached Spider-Man’s symbiote in order to examine it. Johnny Storm snuck into Reed’s lab and unlocked the container containing the alien because he was only focused on how awesome he would look in all black. Naturally, it latched itself to him, and his pants changed into a dark rendition of his usual attire. Johnny made the decision to “FLAME ON!” after being amazed by its mind-reading abilities. But fire is one of the symbiote’s vulnerabilities. As a result, it quickly disconnected from Johnny Storm.
When Norman Osborn was made aware of Spider-Man’s true identity, Mac Gargan was given the go-ahead to capture Peter’s Aunt May in the case that something were to happen to Osborn. The recently released Venom Symbiote approached Scorpion while he was working on his mission. The symbiote united with the Scorpion, who happily embraced the black goo and was changed into the terrifying new Venom. The symbiote was looking for a new host that shared its hatred of Spider-Man as well as the ambition and experience of an experienced criminal.
Since Logan is the first mutant person on Earth that the hive mind symbiotes have encountered, the symbiote that combines with Wolverine is also going through first contact. That is the reason why, even in its fused, venomized state, it adopts a trace of Logan’s pointed haircut.
Later, when Logan’s condition deteriorates due to the venom, the alien is unwilling to leave Logan alone unless and until it finds a more suitable host. When Peter Parker intervenes and makes a deal with the symbiote, Logan is released from its control. Peter Parker, however, must handle the repercussions.
Venom returning to the planet where the symbiote originated was the theme of a Guardians of the Galaxy storyline. The black goo was contained in a jar, but when Groot took it, it quickly broke out. The bizarre combination of Groot and Venom, who was always yelling, “I AM VENOM!” battled the other Guardians of the Galaxy until Drax knocked him unconscious.
The symbiote left Groot and spread to Rocket from the vents above, taking control of him. The Venomized Rocket demanded that everyone leave the spacecraft as soon as possible. He stated that he didn’t want to kill anyone, but he needed to gain control of the ship right away.
Drax made the decision to grab Rocket by the back. After slipping off Rocket, the suit hopped onto Drax.
Except for the victorious Drax, everyone was unconscious. Drax took pride as they touched down on the Klyntar homeworld, laughing maniacally. Before departing Drax’s body, the symbiote spoke in cryptic terms about their travels.
The Venom symbiote abandoned its longstanding host Eddie Brock in favor of a greater hero, only for the new host to be slain mid-transformation in Marvel’s Absolute Carnage comic book. Carnage unintentionally made the new Venom Hulk awake by killing Bruce Banner. The symbiote hero’s most potent and invincible iteration to date.
Thor wasn’t quite convinced by the symbiote’s claims that what happened to Spider-Man was a mistake and that it was actually assisting Banner with his Hulk problems, and the two engaged in a major altercation. Even though Thor survived, the symbiote just bonded itself to him.
While lurking inside Mount Rushmore, the two individuals engaged in a mental conflict. Black Bolt, who was sent after them by Reed Richards, defeated the symbiote Thor with just one word.
Doc Ock acquired the power of the Venom symbiote while residing in Peter Parker’s body. He transformed himself into the Superior Venom after stealing the symbiote from Flash Thompson. The Superior Venom was more hostile and senseless than it had ever been.
It possessed Otto Octavius’ intellect in addition to Spider-Man and Venom’s abilities.
The dark symbiote Knull targeted Ms. Marvel, one of the most clever superheroes in existence. Kamala was swallowed by one of Knull’s symbiotes and fused into the hive’s consciousness in the panels of Miles Morales‘ Spider-Man.
Later, Miles did his best to get her friend out of the venom symbiote but eventually failed.
Though Carol Danvers rescued Kamala in the following issue.
After overcoming his aggressive characteristics, Thompson began to like Peter in college. Flash enlisted in the Army and was assigned to a post in Southeast Asia, but when he came back to the United States, he had a hard time fitting in. Flash battled alcoholism, which Norman Osborn used to cause him to go into a vehicle accident, and fall into a deep depression. This caused Flash to awaken from his coma in a state that was almost vegetative. Flash returned to his former school and began coaching gym after regaining his full senses.
Despite serving on the same mission that cost him his legs, Thompson returned to the military and was awarded the Medal of Honor. Flash worked as Agent Venom for Project Rebirth 2.0 after becoming attached to the Venom symbiote. After it was shut down, he went on his own and joined the Secret Avengers. Flash lost the symbiote after spending time in space with the Guardians of the Galaxy and coming back to Earth. In the end, he acquired a new symbiotic partner and changed his name to Agent Anti-Venom. After being killed by the Red Goblin, Flash’s psyche was able to survive in the Symbiote Hive-Mind, and his body was eventually revived, restoring him to Agent Anti-Venom’s form.
During the King in Black comic book, Tony Stark reverse-engineered his Extremis armor to protect Eddie Brock and battle the symbiote army sent out by Knull, the God of Symbiotes. Sadly, Stark was unable to save Brock, but instead fused with his armor to produce an awful new Symbiote-Extremis hybrid. Stark took command of a celestial as a result of the spontaneous creation. Although the armor was strong, it was also extremely flammable and felt repulsive.
