Embarrassing Venom

Isn’t it ironic

One of the definitions of irony is a situation that is strange or funny because things happen in a way that seems to be the opposite of what you expected. A perfect example of this came in Dark Avengers.

The Dark Avengers were fighting Morgan le Fay’s monsters to protect Doctor Doom. One of them tried to eat Venom, which infuriated him. Daken (who was posing as Wolverine) simply said, “And the irony is completely lost on him.”


Eddie Brock’s biggest enemy is Carnage. He may hate Peter Parker, but Carnage is the antithesis of everything that he stands for. He’s evil in ways that most people can’t fathom. This leads to Eddie constantly trying to stop Carnage. Sometimes it works, other times it doesn’t. This particular time it did not. Carnage escaped after tricking him into getting hit by a moving train. One of the more embarrassing things to happen to Eddie as Venom. Give it a Google search. It’s pretty funny.

Angelo Fortunato

Don Fortunato wanted his son Angelo to take over his criminal empire one day. But he needed his son to be strong. When Eddie put his Symbiote up for auction, Don Fortunato bought it for Angelo. The symbiote relationship with Angelo lasted less time than it takes to drink a cup of coffee. Venom abandons Angelo and in the middle of the fight because he found Angelo pathetic.
