Sara likes to write about her favorite fandoms, ranging from Marvel and Saga to Doctor Who and Jim Henson. Following the successful thwarting of Bob’s plans, the Venom symbiote absorbs the clone into its form, making its host -- Flash Thompson -- even more powerful. (Mutually Assured Destruction) fallout of the Cold War or in the event of world chaos. Literally. See, there have been several occasions where evil corporations have attempted to clone the symbiote in order to facilitate their twisted plans. ZZZXX might sound like a literal snooze-fest, but the symbiote is actually listed as one of the most dangerous beings in the entire galaxy by the Shi’ar Empire. Anti-Venom's resistance to fire, sound and heat is the opposite of the weaknesses of other symbiotes from Klyntar. One of the most powerful and scariest symbiotes in existence, Scream began, as several other symbiotes listed here began, as a project of the Life Foundation. He stands near the fuel tank of the downed spacecraft and tricks Torch/Dreadface to fire upon him, causing the symbiote to be incinerated in the ensuing explosion. Vulcan gave him a Shi’ar host to consume, and it was discovered that Zzzxx is vastly different from other Klyntars, in that it is a monstrosity that feeds off its host’s brains. When Devos clashed with the Fantastic Four, his ship crashed in the jungle causing the alien mass to escape. Stone was fatally stabbed by Punisher in his escape, and as he lay dying in the sewer he came into contact with a highly evolved Venom symbiote. Toxin proved to be so much more powerful than both Carnage and Venom that the two wanted to take him out together, but Spidey, who saw the good beneath the power, helped Mulligan use his symbiote to fight more nefarious versions of his own kind. Toxin is the wicked stepchild of the symbiotes, the one with Carnage as his father, Venom as his surrogate caregiver and Spider-Man as his defender. Peter rejected the power, but Eddie embraced it, becoming the Ultimate Venom.

The Poisons are more powerful than not only Venom but the symbiotes in general, as they are the species natural predator. Mayhem only exists in a 1998 "What If?" Dreadface is a name that sounds less intimidating than Leatherface, but a bit more so than Taserface, and that pretty much sums up this symbiote. Between that and his ridiculous name, Bizarnage just wasn't the nightmare-inducing villain that is Carnage. He had blades on his back and shoulders and, like Carnage, often transformed his arms into giant blades to slash his enemies. If that wasn’t enough, he was also possessed by a symbiote, making him that character the annoying kid in your class pretends to be to win any playfight. Spider-Man, seeing the good in Toxin, helped fend off its “father” and “grandfather,” and Mulligan left the police force -- and his wife and child -- to dedicate his time to fending off the symbiotes base urges and become a force for good. Unlike the Klyntar, who are naturally non-violent, Dreadface is a symbiote seemingly born to cause chaos. In 1996 Marvel and DC comics engaged in an intercompany crossover called -- inventively enough -- Marvel vs. DC, and ran for four issues which saw heroes from both universes clash thanks to the whims of the personified versions of the respective universes. However, the Venom symbiote was not dead, merely incapacitated for a time, and after it recovered it sought Eddie out and re-bonded with hi… The only thing keeping him alive was the Venom symbiote, but that no longer wanted him in his terminally ill state, so in a moment of spiritual awakening, Eddie decided to sell off the symbiote to the highest bidder so that he could die in dignity. Toxin became more powerful and stronger than both but came with some alterations. true,but Brock did by either being smarter,more skilled or PIS,Carnage is stronger than Spider-Man AND Venom combined Gargan? Oh and he has robot legs. Oh i,am a Anti Venom fan now! Latching onto the Human Torch when its weakness was yep, you guessed it, fire. First introduced in 2017’s Venomverse event, the Poisons are a predatory alien race that feeds off Klyntar symbiotes and their hosts. Bonding more permanently to its host by leaving trace amounts of itself into the host's bloodstream, Ultimate Venom is incredibly hard to take out. They are so powerful that Thanos himself was their leader. He found himself singing "Every Time You Go Away" when he forgot a bit of himself in Dr. Tanis Nieves, which caused the good doctor to remove her arm out of disgust, another villain to usurp the arm and symbiote power before the symbiote would eventually make its way back to its chosen host, Nieves, becoming Scorn. Whenever alternate universes introduce the Venom symbiote, writers always seem to want to draw a closer connection between the symbiote’s host and Peter Parker. Kasady was a serial killer, and planned on stabbing Brock when he least expected … The creatures aren't even limited to Spider-Man comics, although they do turn up quite a bit in Peter Parker's world and, while some of them show just how incredibly powerful Venom is, others sort of put the monstrous parasite to shame, depicting how strong a symbiote can often be with the right host or set of abilities. It all started with Eddie Brock discovering that he was suffering from adrenal cancer. The host, of course, is another factor that helps determine the level of heat that a symbiote will bring to a fight, so keep that in mind while considering these 16 Symbiotes More Powerful Than Venom (And 9 Weaker). agent Mavis Trent, she uses her more evolved powers for good. Born when the Venom symbiote left a part of itself behind, this offspring bonded with Cletus Kasady and a venomous killer with no morality was born. Spoiler alert: they all are! Venom and riot vs carnage trailer - Duration: 0:11. Because this is comics, however, Carnage doesn’t die forever, he’s rescued from space by Michael Hall of Hall Industries, a nefarious businessman who kept Cletus Kasady locked up so that he could harvest the symbiote to enhance the cybernetic prosthetics he created. As insane as Carnage was, his "brother," Riot, was one of the most dangerous of the Guardian Symbiotes of the Life Foundation's creations. A symbiote's limitations often predict whether or not the creature will be much of a menace as well. The story is one of the most compelling of the symbiotes: Not only is Kron Stone the dark and twisted half-brother to Spidey and the person who took out The Punisher's family in this world, but he's also possessed by the symbiote just before taking his own final breath. Of course, what would a Spider-Ham be without a Venom? One of the five symbiotes forced from Venom by the Life Foundation, Scream was quickly established as the leader of the group due to her superior skills. Pork Grind could fight “toon-style,” having attended Toon U and learned the skills there. One such recipient was Dr. Tanis Nieves, a psychiatrist who was fitted with a Hall Industries prosthetic arm. Scream’s host, Donna Diego, was, like the other four hosts, a volunteer of the Life Foundation, who gave herself over freely to becoming a symbiote protector of the imagined rich people utopia. Most recently, Carnage has returned to the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, bonding with Norman Osborn to create the even more powerful Red Goblin, a being imbued with the strength of the symbiote and the madness of the Goblin serum. But is Carnage still stronger than new Venom and is stronger than Anti Venom? After Carnage there is Toxin who is stronger than Carnage and Venom combined who would destroy Mercer. He's able to lift an entire Ferris Wheel off of his wife while the symbiote was weakened (which is a little far fetched but still canon). One of the strangest plot threads in superhero comics that has, to this day, never been acknowledged in prime continuity, is just what happened to Peter Parker and Mary Jane’s baby. Krobaa, now free from the bond, could not believe how dark humanity was -- “What monstrous gods would create a race with so much buried greatness – yet curse them with souls born wounded?” -- and chooses suicide over allowing the "seed of darkness" that is humanity from being unleashed upon the universe. Mayhem has the coolest look of any of the "She-Venoms" as well as the most fun name. The symbiote may have technically been a sword in form, but it was still made from living darkness and able to corrupt its bearer to commit dastardly deeds to the point of executing anyone within range. Originally latching on to a gorilla, of all things, the Klyntar-based life form was first seen in Fantastic Four #359. The hype for 2018’s Venom movie is now well underway, with a trailer, cast list and poster giving us the best look we’ve had of the Tom Hardy led picture than we’ve had before. The movie centers around Eddie Brock (played by Hardy), a local reporter who, in the comics, gets infected with the alien symbiote after Spider-Man manages to successfully extricate himself from it. It’s also capable of curing people afflicted with diseases, poisoning or radioactivity, leading to Eddie working to “cure” the streets of New York City of its drug-fuelled underworld. It's also because unlike other beings from Klyntar, ZZZXX actually feeds off its host's brain. Perhaps the ludicrousness of this creature is better explained by his first appearance, which was in Deadpool: The Gauntlet. For the uninitiated, Marvel 2099 was exactly what it sounds like: an imprint that looked at the Marvel universe in the far-off future of 2099. Throughout Marvel comic history, symbiotes have plagued the universe, presenting some of the most powerful and dangerous adversaries and anti-heroes of all time. A good example of that was Ultimate Venom, who was largely familiar to fans, but with a number of distinct differences. He originated as a slimy black mass that was kept in a cube aboard the ship of villain Devos the Devastator. As icky as her purple look is, which we frankly want to chalk up to the desire to make her more "girly," the symbiote could spit freaking acid, which made her pretty formidable. We really don't know where Krobaa hails from, though many fans speculate that it's from Klyntar, the same planet that the Venom symbiote originated from. Spider-Ham was able to defeat him by using his own toon-logic against him, eating “toon spinach” which gave him huge muscles, allowing him to punch Pork Grind in the nose and turn it into an accordion. The origins of Anti-Venom are a little complicated. A one-stop shop for all things video games. It would use these tendrils to “lash” out at its opponents, hence the name. I would think that Carnage is stronger than Venom, but Venom has been known to over power Carnage by himself on Carnage's own ground on a few occasions as well. SSS13: And Pennywise, The Demon stalker of Derry. First introduced in 2008's True Believers, Payback is a symbiote who leads a more functional life as the leader of the True Believers themselves. Riot, who latched onto a security guard well trained in armed and hand-to-hand combat as his host, made his first appearance in the series Venom: Lethal Protector. Payback isn't as unhinged as many of her symbiotic cousins and as she's latched onto S.H.I.E.L.D. He was immune to this disease that they call, The Melting. When Carnage escapes from his cell, he looks set to cause, well, carnage, until The Sentry reveals himself and flies the symbiote into space, ripping him in half and showing just how powerful he is. So, it's pretty close, but it has been stated that Carnage is stronger than Venom. Payback has one of the coolest looks of the symbiotes, transforming into a being with silver skin. Appearing in only one issue of Venom: Seed of Darkness, Krobaa was a scout from his homeworld on a mission of exploration, making him one of the only symbiotes on this list that wasn’t originally created from the Venom symbiote. His conquest is being revealed in the 2018 series Venomized. world and it's one of a preposterous nature in which not only does Norman Osborn clone the baby of MJ and Peter Parker, but he also genetically mutates her into the first human/symbiote hybrid with the powers of both Spider-Girl and the symbiote. The Ultimate universe was at times a darker place than its 616 counterpart. The only being around was Dr. Nigel Donlevy, the scientist that activated the portal in the first place and caused Krobaa’s current situation. Spider-Man and Venom had to work together to take Carnage down. In many ways, Anti-Venom, which developed after Eddie Brock realized that he had cancer, truly is the opposite of Venom. All the latest gaming news, game reviews and trailers. This is the one thing I really disliked about the movie. Some people say that Carnage is physically superior to Venom but he can use his rage to overpower Carnage. Not only do The Poisons take on the powers of their hosts, but they can also transform their hosts into weapons to use and carry out inter-dimensional travel. His alien symbiont is constantly supplying him with new energy , and it heals any wounds. Listed as one of the five most dangerous criminals in the Galaxy by the Shi'ar Empire, Zzzxx -- the villain with the name that sounds like a bug hitting an electric light -- was discovered by the Emperor D’Ken and later chosen by the villainous new Emperor Vulcan to serve in his Imperial Guard. abkjsm (Topic Creator) 9 years ago #2. In the story, Spectre, from the DC Universe, merged with the Living Tribunal of the Marvel Universe, and a new, combined, Amalgam universe was born. With poisonous blood and saliva, enhanced shapeshifting abilities and tricks learned after inhabiting more powerful beings, this Venom is among the most powerful in Marvel history. “Toon-Style” basically meant he could fight like Roger Rabbit or Daffy Duck, with all of the ridiculous, physics-defying imagery that conjures up. As the maniacal Carnage, Kasady has been killed multiple times over the years, but he always finds a way to come back, stronger than ever. The Marvel vs. DC event may have given fans a few answers to their "what if" questions regarding what might happen if the two worlds clashed for a few issues, but it also gave us some pretty weak versions of our favorite characters. They became capable of interdimensional travel thanks to a poisoned Doctor Doom. The Poisons can take on the powers, strengths and abilities of the host, consuming the body for nutrients, and then use the absorbed symbiote as a weapon or defense, converting it into blades or tentacles etc. It was later revealed that Donna Diego was clinically insane, and this manifested in her murdering the hosts of her fellow Life Foundation symbiotes one by one. No, it wasn't as powerful as Venom, but it shouldn't be discounted and is much more impressive than some of the more Razzie Award-worthy symbiotes in this list. If you thought Howard the Duck was the craziest anthropomorphic superhero in the Marvel canon, then you may not have heard of the spectacular Spider-Ham. There was an outbreak of disease. We've had pig Venom, zombie venom, Bizarro Venom... Lasher made Cthulhu Venom possible. Instead, Carnage implanted Toxin into Patrick Mulligan, a police officer who vowed to become a hero and use Toxin to fight crime. Brock did defeat Mania (AKA She-Venom) but given the fact that Maniac eventually was able to bond and unite with other hosts before being taken out by Spiderman, Venom and Agent Anti-Venom together, we think it was more powerful than Venom alone. There's a reason Carnage was given a much more hostile name than venom: the symbiote is a bigger concern. It turns out that Norman Osborn cloned May as a baby, placing the clone in stasis for years and manipulating her DNA with that of a symbiote to create the first ever human/symbiote hybrid.
