Read full description of the books:
On the surface, this has the makings of an interesting series: combine Flash Thompson; former Peter Parker bully; Spider-man fan, soldier who lost both legs in the Middle East; alcoholic and victim of an abusive, alcoholic father with Venom, mentally unstable, killer alien symbiote. The ground rules are: Thompson can only stay connected with Venom for two hours, if it goes any longer, he risks permanent bonding with the symbiote. If Thompson gets angry, he also risks the symbiote taking over. If during any of his black ops missions, the symbiote takes control, the government can press a fail-safe switch and it’s “Goodnight Irene” for both Thompson and the symbiote. The clock is always running.
The execution by Rick Remender and company doesn’t deliver. Even though you’re rooting for the likable Thompson to succeed, Venom as a lead character hasn’t worked before and it doesn’t here. Re-vamping Jack O’ Lantern as a Green Goblin wannabe or bringing in Kraven, both D-list villains fall flat. Remender’s take on Thompson’s family conflicts adds nothing new or compelling to a storyline I’ve seen many times before. The fail-safe clock doesn’t quite add the requisite dramatic tension because this is a comic and you know there’s always a way to work around it. Plus, Spider-Man vs. Venom- Round 134.
I don’t get the love for Remender, but maybe I’ve been reading the wrong comics. For a better take on the Venom/Thompson character see Charles Soule’s Thunderbolt’s run.
What’s to like
Venom and giant, supersonic bats – Venom’s weaknesses are fire and loud noise
(view spoiler)[ At one point, Thompson breaks into a pharmacy and ingests massive quantities of sedatives to keep the symbiote from completely taking over. (hide spoiler)]
What’s not to like
The abusive non-nuanced alcoholic father
The art. Much action takes place in the dark, Venom is black, Yo! What just happened?
To a select few of my friends ( Shelby and Kelly they know who they are), Venom battles a villain called the Human Fly, Jeff Goldblum is name dropped as per his role in the movie, “The Fly”. Jeff Goldblum!?! Stay out of my comics, Goldblum!!!
Question: Do Vibranium bullets pierce Adamantium?
