"Been to many worlds, but none of them this strange. Understood feelings before, but simple feelings - like colors, bold and bright. Happy. Sad. Angry. Then... met Spider-Man. Feelings got complicated... Feels good to be a hero... and heroes don't hide. Not from anything... especially their mistakes.
- Venom symbiote, Venom, Vol. 1

Venom is an anti-hero of the Marvel Comics universe who goes by many names. The Venom symbiote - an alien lifeform - has bonded with many characters, including Spider-Man, Deadpool, supervillain Lee Price, Army Corporal and Guardian of the Galaxy Flash Thompson, and career criminal Mac Gargan.

Venom imparts super strength and protective powers to its host. Venom also imprinted many of Spider-Man's powers, including web-slinging and adhesion. For this reason, his suit depicts a spider logo. He is not limited to bonding with one lifeform, and therefore finds a new host when separated from the former.
