As if he were smiling, the muscular figure with slimy black skin shows its frighteningly sharp teeth. Exposing his long tongue and with his eyes closed, he focuses on a goal to promote his twisted sense of justice by eliminating criminals to protect his city. On top of a building rubble base, Iron Studios presents the statue "Venom - BDS Art Scale 1/10 - Venom: Let There Be Carnage", featuring the symbiote anti-hero in its cinematic version.
Derived from a comet full of symbiotic life forms and discovered by a space probe from a bioengineering corporation called the Life Foundation, an alien merges in symbiosis with investigative journalist Eddie Brock to survive, thus creating, from that union the monstrous being who introduces himself as Venom. As part of an invasion force that sought new worlds for the symbiotes to take over and feed on, the creature and Brock end up creating a deep bond and together decide to help protect Earth from the invasion of the alien species. After completing the mission, both remain secretly connected and committed to protecting the city by eliminating criminals.
Played on the big screen by Tom Hardy, the cinema version of Venom has the main characteristics of the being, but it differs from its origins from the comics, where the character has its origins linked to Spider-Man. The alien from the species known as Klyntar emerged in 1984 as an alien costume of the arachnid hero but became Venom in 1988 in the art of the legendary Todd McFarlane. Originally a villain in Spider-Man's gallery of enemies, thanks to his popularity, Venom has become an anti-hero, calling himself The Lethal Protector. He became one of Marvel's most popular characters in the 1990s.
