Poison is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics, commonly in association with Spider-Man. The personality is a sentient alien Symbiote with an amorphous, liquid-like form, that endures by bonding with a host, typically human. This dual-life type receives enhanced powers and generally describes itself as “Venom”. The Symbiote was originally introduced as a living alien outfit in The Fantastic Spider-Man # 252 (May 1984), with a complete first appearance as Poison in The Amazing Spider-Man # 300 (Might 1988).
The Poison Symbiote’s initial human host was Spider-Man, who at some point discovered its real rotten nature and also apart himself from the creature in The Incredible Spider-Man # 258 (November 1984)– with a quick rejoining five months later in Web of Spider-Man # 1. The Symbiote went on to merge with other hosts, most especially Eddie Brock, its 2nd and most well known host, with whom it initially came to be Venom as well as one of Spider-Man’s archenemies.
The initial concept of a new outfit for Spider-Man that would later on become the character Venom was conceived by a Marvel Comic books viewers from Norridge, Illinois named Randy Schueller. In 1982, Jim Shooter, Wonder’s editor-in-chief at the time, sent out Schueller a letter recognizing Marvel’s rate of interest in the concept, which they ended up buying from him for $220. Shooter developed the idea of changing Spider-Man to a black-and-white outfit, perhaps influenced by the designated costume style for the new Spider-Woman; musician Mike Zeck created it.
Writer/artist John Byrne says on his internet site that he developed a costume of self-healing biological material when he was the artist on Iron Fist– to explain exactly how that character’s costume was regularly being torn and afterwards apparently fixed by the following problem. Byrne says discussing that he wound up not making use of the idea on that particular title, but that Roger Stern later asked him if he can make use of the suggestion for Spider-Man’s alien outfit. Stern in turn plotted the issue in which the outfit initially appeared but after that left the title. It was writer Tom DeFalco and musician Ron Frenz who established that the costume was a sentient alien being that was vulnerable to high sonic energy throughout their run on The Outstanding Spider-Man that came before Michelinie’s.
The Symbiote was first introduced as Spider-man’s brand-new black costume in The Incredible Spider-Man # 252 (Might 1984) as part of a tale called “Homecoming!” The story happens after Spider-Man’s return from the occasions of the miniseries Secret Wars, where he first obtains the black costume. The full opening night of Venom is in The Remarkable Spider-Man # 300 (May 1988), after the Symbiote bonds with Eddie Brock.
