Either way Marvel comics character, Venom, is leaving New York for Philadelphia. Both the writer Cullen Bunn and editor Tom Brennan went to Philadelphia’s Drexel University, and they’re giving their alumni their own superhero.
Or, at least, something close to it.
Bunn is quoted as saying “He’s surrounding himself with new people – such as tabloid journalist Katy Kiernan and his new love interest, the Asgardian Valkyrie. He’s changing his approach to being a superhero. And he’s looking for a change of scenery.”
While Brennan is quoted as saying “This is a good man with a troubled past who needed a fresh start, and thought the City of Brotherly Love was the perfect place for him to take his next steps in becoming the hero he was born to be.”
The first Philadephia issue will be out in December.
