Venom: Lethal Protector (1993)

Posted on Updated on

Venom: Lethal Protector was a six-issue limited series featuring the Eddie Brock Venom, published by Marvel Comics from February 1993 to July 1993. It was written by David Michelinie and illustrated mostly by Mark Bagley, although Ron Lim and series colorist Sam DeLarosa pencilled the last three issues.

This marked the first time Eddie Brock received a series in which he was the main character, and recast Venom from an unambiguous villain to an anti-hero.

Before the story begins, Venom makes an agreement with Spider-Man that they will leave each other alone, on the condition that Venom commits no crimes. Venom then moves from New York City to San Francisco, and takes up with a group of Californian mole people. Shortly thereafter the father of one of Venom’s victims seeks him out with a group of super-powered mercenaries to take revenge.

Spider-Man, seeing misleading coverage of Venom on television, heads to San Francisco to confront him and instead winds up fighting alongside Venom against five new offspring of the Venom Symbiote: Scream, Phage, Riot, Lasher, and Agony.

    I never liked Venom as an antihero. He’s one of my favorite villains, but I never liked him as an antihero at all.
