So this is completely unexpected and pretty freaking awesome. Well, if you’re a Venom fan it’s awesome anyway, since the iconic version of the character is going to be absolutely running wild on the Marvel U.
Not only do we get Eddie Brock back in the Symbiote, but we get a pretty neat event book to celebrate the occasion. And while Venomized versions of Marvel characters is definitely a little on the gimmicky side, it’s also undeniably cool.
Also, and feel free to correct me if I’m wrong here, but is that Wolverine in the back there? Like, Wolverine Wolverine? Last I checked Old Man Logan didn’t wear a costume. Plunk that one in the ‘huh’ file for the time being.
