Venom Finally Looks Like His Chest Symbol

Venom Finally Looks Like His Chest Symbol

Posted by August 18, 2018 Comment

Venom’s chest symbol was first seen in the 1980s Secret Wars series, the new Spider-Woman’s chest symbol which was then picked up by Spider-Man when he encountered the symbiote that would be Venom. And gave him a brand-new costume.

The chest symbol still appeared to be that of a spider, but much bigger, white on black, and the legs bunched together. And when the symbiote left Spider-Man, Venom kept the image.

In the recent Venom series, however there was the suggestion that it may mean to represent something other than a spider. And in this week’s Venom #5, we get a look at what the Venom symbol may actually be retconned into embodying. And it doesn’t mean ‘Hope’.

It’s a dragon. Venom has always been a dragon.

Here’s the full preview…

• An ancient Klyntar has awakened on Earth, and with it, something has stirred in Eddie Brock’s symbiote.
•  And while Venom would never do anything to hurt Eddie or an innocent person, the ancient symbiote has no such qualms…
