Hello, world….WE'RE BACK!!


The symbiotes were a conquering race who had no feelings unto themselves. They fed off the emotions of those they conquered and forced them to do spectacular feats in order to feel the adrenaline rush. Eventually, the beings would be sucked dry and left for dead. One symbiote was placed in a prison and condemned to death by disintegration when it was discovered that he focused more on bonding
and communicating then on dominating.

Eddie Brock had been a successful columnist for the newly revived Daily Globe until he began writing a series of articles about the
"Sin-Eater murders". A fake criminal had confessed to Brock about committing the murders. While protecting the "murderer's" identity under the First Amendment, Brock wrote a series of stories in the Globe detailing his dialogue with the supposed killer, until mounting
pressure from the authorities forced him to write an exclusive revealing the murderer's name. Although that edition of the paper sold
out immediately, Spider-Man soon revealed the true identity of the Sin-Eater to be Detective Stan Carter, making Brock a laughingstock
among his fellow journalists. Fired from the Daily Globe, he was forced to write absolute crap for scandal newspapers. Brock's wife left him, and his future appeared to be over. Brock blamed his situation on Spider-Man.

Soon after, Brock began an intense physical workout program hoping to reduce the stress his life had become. However, such physical exertions only increased his violent obsession with Spider-Man. Although his body had been honed to near-perfection, Brock's mind was reduced to an all-consuming vessel of hate. It was this fierce emotion that attracted the empathic parasite. In order to survive, the alien costume had to feed off the nearest and greatest source of emotion. The symbiote joined mentally and physically with Brock, whose emotions overwhelmed the already confused alien. The dominant thought on both their minds was that of Spider-Man. But Brock's sheer hatred for the crime fighter twisted the symbiote's feelings to a similar extent. In effect, Brock's emotions drove the symbiote insane, just as their bonding may have driven Brock over the edge. Brock soon discovered that the costume gave him all the powers of Spider-Man, and more. It also added bulk to his already large frame and increased his strength to superhuman levels. Calling themselves "Venom," Brock directed the costume to spawn a hideous grin and plotted his revenge. Through the costume, Venom learned a great deal about Spider-Man, including his secret identity, Peter Parker. There was a time that Eddie and the Suit had been separated, either
forcibly or by will of the symbiote. For a time, the suit had become attached to Angelo Fortunato, but this was short-lived, as the suit
preferred to be with Eddie because of the strong emotions coursing through the human.

It was learned, when Eddie had been separated from the suit, that he was suffering from cancer, the symbiote had been working against it, but it had started growing. Eddie has since tried to get rid of his cancer, eventually doing so. The suit had latched onto him again though and he was inevitably captured by Spider-Man, and the symbiote later had been separated from Eddie again. While Eddie has been incarcerated in the maximum security wing of a mental institution, the connection he feels with the symbiote has not let go. He is aware of a probable escape attempt by the alien to reattach to Eddie.
