Sure, Venom has been something of a mess since… well for the last few years. Let’s just say that and leave it there. I know there were some fans, but we can be honest. The living costume has been errant at best. Here’s the thing though, with Eddie back in the symbiote and the character back on the bad side of the Marvel U, there’s little here to not get excited about.
I mean, come on- this is Venom. And it’s not just a ‘new’ version of him either. This is the first, the original, the most iconic version of Venom that was massively popular for pretty much all of the 1990’s. First appearing in Spidey comics in 1988, I think it’s fair to say at this point that Venom is one of the hero’s greatest foes.
For me, and I’m a pretty big Spidey fan, I’d put him right there with any of Mr. Parker’s rogues. Eddie is arguably the web-head’s arch-villain, equally as cool as Doc Ock and the Green Goblin as far as I’m concerned. Personally, I can’t wait and April 19th can’t come fast enough.
