Some like to say Venom is Spiderman’s coolest villain, and they wouldn’t be wrong. Remember, Venom was just a part of the symbiote suit, and it definitely had a penchant for causing chaos and reigning death. But then you can get into how cool Carnage was, and then you can start talking about the recent Anti-Venom character (that is REALLY its name). But what that all comes down to is love for the symbiote. What, you are not familiar with the full story of this sentient (parasitic) being?

Well, good news. VariantComics has you covered with this thorough video explaining the complete origin of this space-bred entity and the many forms and suits and names it has taken over the course of its almost 30 year history.
But the real question I want to pose for comic and Spiderman fans here, which symbiote form was your personal favorite? Was it the black costume and sickening maw of Venom? Was it the bloodlust and Joker-like rage of Carnage? Or perhaps this video will introduce you to some new versions you didn’t even know existed and they will become your favorite.
The best part is knowing the symbiote will most likely always a be a part of Spiderman’s world, and now we are just curious to see what shape and names it takes on next. I kinda like the name Remy and think it would be a cool Spidey enemy, but something tells me chances are slim.
