Venom is this badass alien from Marvel's world. He is a really dangerous and powerful enemy of Spider-Man, but he is so popular eventhough he is a villian, that he has been the protagonist of his own comic book series!!! :O Venom was ranked as the 22nd Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time in IGN's list of the top 100 comic villains, 33rd on Empire's 50 Greatest Comic Book Characters, and was ranked as the 98th Greatest Comic Book Character Ever in Wizard magazine's 200 Greatest Comic Book Characters of all Time list.
He first appeared on THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #252, where he had his first fight with Spidey and took Spidey as his host. After they got separated, he invaded Eddie Brock. His "family" includes Carnage and Toxin.
Venom has been adapted to different media such as comics, animated TV series, video games and movies. Its origin and history has been changed according to circumstances and the tastes of different audiences, but the fact that he is truly a symbiont never changes, usually of extraterrestrial origin and that he shares with Spider-Man many of his powers and abilities (like adhering to almost any surface, generate webs, great strength and agility, etc.) and even his appearance due to thebond that they had in the past. His appearance is very similar to that of Spider-Man wearing his blue suit and black with a picture of a white spider on the trunk. The main differences are that Venom is far more muscular, he is more aggressive and violent, and his mouth, which often is drooling and covered with sharp teeth that often stand between a long tongue. He is considered the twisted part of Spiderman. Originally he was presented as a solitary creature, "mute" and eager for a person to join him and thus survive, which has changed recently, appearing mainly as a being with will and also oppressive and that can talk with itself. It is important to know that he does not have a name, Venom is just a nickname with which he is known on Earth after his arrival.

It was mentioned that Marvel and Sony are working on a Venom ovie :D. Its release would be in 2012 and has as screenwriters Rhett Reese (Monsters Inc, Zombieland) and Paul Wernick (Zombieland). Spider-Man will guest star in the movie and Topher Grace was rumored that could enbody Eddie Brock/Venom again. :D
Yup, there have been three "female" Venoms:
- Ann Weying - Patricia Robertson - Susan Richards (yes, the chick from Fantastic Four)
ANN WEYING was Eddie's ex-wife, she died.
PATRICIA ROBERTSON an army chick that got infected near the North Pole.
SUSAN RICHARDS she got possesed by Venom a little after Spidey released himself from Venom. Spidey helped her to destroy their bond.
This is Ann Weying as Venom (were the big boobs necessary? )
