Now that Marvel’s upcoming Venom movie is officially out in theaters, Netflix is finally releasing a new series called Amazing Legends Venom, and it’s really great.
You can stream it right now on Netflix.
The series follows the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first and foremost anti-hero, the symbiote-turned-super-hero Venom.
Venom, who first appeared in Amazing Spider-Man #1 in 1984, was an unlikely villain: a human-animal hybrid with superpowers.
He was built in the likeness of his creator’s creation, Peter Parker.
Venom’s first battle against Spider-man came when Venom confronted the hero in his underground lair.
After Spider-mans attack, Venom was able to unleash a web of webbing that enveloped the hero, trapping him and sending him spiraling toward the ground.
Venom was eventually able to defeat Spider-men and freed the trapped Peter Parker, but was left crippled and dying.
After losing the symbiotic symbiode to a mysterious stranger, Venom went on to kill his wife, wife-to-be Mary Jane Watson, and then kill himself.
It was an event that was quickly followed by the rise of the Black Order, a group of villains who targeted innocent people, including the Symbiote.
Venom also became a symbol of evil, and he was eventually hunted down by a mysterious entity named Carnage, who was later revealed to be an alien creature who had a symbiotic bond with Venom.
The Black Order soon formed a new alliance with Venom, known as the Symbiotes, to bring him down.
Venom and Carnage were then captured by an intergalactic government, and they were taken to a prison planet in outer space where the symbiotes were housed.
Venom spent the next decade trapped on the planet, with his symbiogenically bonded symbioid symbiose-body absorbing Carnage and being consumed by it.
The symbiotic body was eventually defeated, and Venom was released from captivity.
The Venom of today would be very different.
He would have developed a new set of superpowers and gained a new ability to manipulate symbioses.
He had also developed a desire to protect the Earth, and the symbiots were not his only enemies.
Venom would also have developed new ways to kill, such as creating his own symbiotes to kill the symbiopathic foes.
Venom in Amazing Legends has been created by James Gunn, the creator of Guardians of the Galaxy, and was created by Kevin Feige and Peter Mayhew.
It is based on the character of Venom from the comic book series written by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, and first appeared with the original character, Peter Jackson, in 1963’s Amazing Spiderman #1.
James Gunn’s adaptation of the Venom character has been a hit since its debut, garnering a cult following on both Marvel’s and Netflix’s respective platforms.
