This is how it went down the first time. From the original Secret Wars #8. Where Spider-Man encounters a strange alien clothes making machine…
That would, on their return to Earth, suck Spider-Man of his life force and eventually become the monstrous Venom.
But where did that monstrousness come from? Was it all innate? Or did the symbiote pick it up from somewhere? Because today’s Deadpool’s Secret Secret Wars rewrites that scene, giving us a little prequel to it.
So Deadpool gets to use the machine first… and gets his own venemous look.
And after a little experimentation realises something that it would take Spider-Man years to put together…
Though, you know, as this issue shows, he does also save the day.
But this, right here, right now, is the new origin of Venom. It’s official folks…
