The Venom: The First Host weekly series has given us a new symbiote, a spawn of Venom, with its own power base and abilities that can be transferred to a host, including manipulating the emotions and reason of those in its proximity through hormones, as well as invisibility and seeing what others cannot see.
And in the climactic battle with Tel-Kar, the original host for the Venom symbiote, the Sleeper Symbiote does something very nasty…
Welcome to the new Venom symbiote. And the all-but-dead Kree within him. A zombie symbiote. And with all sorts of possibilities for symbiotes exploiting coma victims in storylines to come…
You know, the Sleeper Symbiote doesn’t have a name yet. Any suggestions?
