Oh god - what's happening to me?!
Eddie...we are one now. WE are VENOM!
OH GOD I - wait, what?
...Venom. We are Venom.
I'm sorry - I get we're two separate beings bonding on a cellular level to form a singular new creature, but...Venom?
Yeah, Venom. What's wrong with that?
Are we poisonous?
Seems like a pretty arbitrary choice then. Venom is just poison secreted by animals, like spiders or-
IT'S EVOCATIVE, OKAY?
I'm just saying, if we were a harmful substance whose origin began with a spider, I'd get it, but-
NO, THAT'S NOT IT, IT'S JUST A COOL NAME, BRO.
Alright, jeez. So what IS our deal then?
We like to kill things.
Oh. Okay. Why not something more like 'Carnage', then?
Just...just no. Not that. Venom is cool. We're sticking with Venom.
I just think I should have some say in this. Venom makes us sound like an 80s hair metal band.
You are REALLY getting hung up on this whole 'poison' thing.
I just don't really get WHY we would call ourselves that if we're not poisonous. If we're going to be some kind of new evolution of humanity and alien, I think we should put a little thought into our name.
It just sounds really cool, I swear. Ask anyone if it sounds cool. Cool look, cool name.
Just saying - 'Carnage' would make a lot more sense.
WE ARE NOT DOING 'CARNAGE', OKAY? Not happening.
I was gonna ask a little about our 'look' too. What's with the teeth?
What do you mean? They're teeth. They look cool. End of story.
But it's like - teeth that go OVER my normal teeth? And my normal teeth are still behind these new teeth? Do we really need two sets of teeth?
The teeth are like the biggest part of the look. They look cool!
So that's it? We're all about the aesthetic? That seems so shallow.
I spent a lot of time on the teeth. The tongue too.
Did I hurt your feelings? Listen, I'm just trying to figure out what we're even doing here.
I'M MAKING US LOOK COOL AND BADASS AND HAVE A BADASS NAME. IS THAT REALLY SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND?
But, like - why extra teeth? You're just goo, you could just form a cool mask over my face or something, instead of having these gross exposed teeth all the time.
Are we not talking now?
Real mature, dude. Thought we were adults here. Alright, if you're gonna MOPE about it, we can be 'Venom.' But if anyone asks about it, you gotta be the one to explain why we're that instead of Carnage.
Man, I really wish I would've bonded with a high school kid with spider-powers instead of you. Bet he wouldn't be so much of a dick about this.
