Venomized #3 continues the heroes versus Poisons storyline with a lot of action and some more advancement of the plot. Thor doesn’t have a connection to her hammer anymore and she’s also able to ditch the symbiote that was attached to her. We see a few other heroes shake their symbiotes, too. However, the heroes aren’t remotely in the clear yet.

I do want to note the great portrayal of Captain America in this issue. He’s always the boy scout and remains so in this. He refuses to leave anyone to deal with the Poisons and symbiote-driven heroes on their own. Even when Kid Kaiju makes his grand entrance, Captain America won’t let him and his beasts take over.

The Poisons discuss their next move and realize that they need to take out Anti-Venom because he wasn’t someone they had planned for. We also learn that the symbiotes have trackers on them that allow them to find the heroes at all times. They still want to go after Kid Kaiju, though, especially now that he revealed himself to everyone.

Overall, the Venomized series has been fine so far. It’s a lot of action and there have been some nice cameo appearances from certain heroes like Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur in this issue. While I’m looking forward to how it turns out, it doesn’t feel like it’s accomplished too terribly much just yet.
