Meanwhile Marvel is colluding with EW to reveal a new version of Venom and fill in future Spider-Man storylines.
There comes a time when even a storied supervillain needs a do-over, and that moment has arrived for Spider-Man arch-nemesis Venom. Well, sorta. The extraterrestrial symbiote — which most famously glommed onto embittered Spider-friend Eddie Brock — is classically depicted as a onyx-colored, cuspated shape-shifter. But Marvel decided the dude needed to lighten up, so they created an additional symbiote as a visual foil to their old standby: Here’s your first glimpse at the new, angelically hued…Anti-Venom.
Truly the day that the comics industry gets both the NY Daily News and EW to reveal their superhero spoilers shows there are no boundaries anymore. NO BOUNDARIES.
Illo above by John Romita Jr. who, come to think of it, still nails that classic superhero look in a way an old timer like The Beat finds very pleasant.
