Harbinger O Great Justice
I occurs to me that I don't really have a thread to talk about Venom, and the recent announcement of a Five-part event based off of some really awesome variant covers gives me a good opportunity to do so.
So, I loved Venom's journey from Agent Venom into the time when he was in Guardians of the Galaxy and moving in to Venom: Space Knight and how it really let Venom become a flawed character of his own with his madness and overwhelming hatred always creeping up, and finally finding a way to overcome it and be a hero like he's constantly aspired to. In the ongoing Venom series, we have no idea how he got here but we drop in to find that he has no host anymore and jumps onto somebody to survive – who is a straight up cold blooded killer, and Venom's trying to resist his own insanity while also changing his host for the better in a place where he's heavily out of his depth and against odds that make it even harder.
With this spinning into an event, I have to say that I'm stoked. Spider-Verse was and is one of the few events that I still really love and has kept touch with the other comics like Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Men 2099, etc. in a way that feels lasting and cool. If they can nail that sort of thing with whatever this is, I'm all-the-way on board for it, because it could be Earth, Space, Alternate Universes, whatever and Venom is already in a place to just leverage that and run with it, so I can't think of a character better suited for it.
Also, all my late 80s early 90s kid nostalgia for him is playing heavily to further enhance my hype.
