We... are Venom.

Eddie Brock is a freelance photographer that was infected by an alien symbiote that bonded itself with him, becoming known as Venom.[1]


Eddie came to be bonded with the Venom Symbiote, initially unaware that it was another life form.[2]

Eddie visited a convenience store, where he was followed by Dora Skirth of the Life Foundation, who asked for his help. Eddie refused to help, heading home instead. He eventually grew crazed, wishing for the symbiote to leave his body. However, when some thugs came to his door, looking to acquire the symbiote, it helped him fend them off. Eddie made a run for it, coming to realize what was inside of him. Eddie hopped on a motorcycle, slowly getting away from the thugs, only to be hit by a van. When the driver of the van, another thug, hopped out, the symbiote took over Eddie's body, enveloping him and lifting the man up off the ground.[3]
