** When Danny Ketch tried to use the Penance Stare on it, the symbiote was initially pained, but the sheer amount of hatred and sin it carried overloaded Ghost Rider and knocked him out. The next time Ghost Rider tried the Penance Stare, he made sure to use his Hellfire to make the symbiote retract so he could get an unobstructed view of Eddie's face.
** When Johnny Blaze tried to use the Penance Stare on Agent Venom during his [[LetsYouAndHimFight challenge]] to see if the Thunderbolts could beat the unleashed symbiote, Venom was completely unfazed and laughed it off whereas Blaze was left unconscious from the memories of its past hosts and all the monstrous acts it had committed.

* MagicEnhancement: The Venom symbiote passed the Hell Mark onto its clone, giving it the ability to control and summon demons, and conjure hellfire... at the cost of slowly corrupting it into an AxCrazy monster. The Hell Mark sensed Andrea's anger issues and transferred from the symbiote to her.

The symbiote accompanied Flash in his activities as part of the Guardians of the Galaxy and Agents of the Cosmos, developing the ability to assume humanoid form without a host. An altercation with the Gramosian space pirate Mercurio undid the cleanse and, succumbing to rage, the symbiote went on a rampage and tried to corrupt Flash. It was subdued and placed on trial by the Agents of the Cosmos, but managing to reign in its bloodlust with Flash's help. The symbiote returned with him to Earth to find Mania -- whose corruption as a result of the Hell Mark was inhibiting its cleanse -- and briefly rebonded to Spider-Man, having a long-overdue heart-to-heart and arranging a truce. Subduing Mania, the symbiote cleansed her symbiote of the Hell Mark's corruption.

After parting ways with Flash Thompson, the Venom symbiote searched for a worthy replacement host. It comes across Lee Price, an Army Ranger discharged from service following the loss of part of his left hand. To its chagrin, Price turns out to be a sociopath who uses it to start a career as a super villain.

** The symbiote itself can be considered the "Upgrade" to Spider-Man; Venom bestows on hosts all of Peter's innate super-powers with some improvements such as increased strength and not being reliant on web-shooters. It's also not detectable by Peter's Spidey-sense, giving it a distinct edge against that specific fighter.
* UsedToBeASweetKid: All it initially wanted was [[IJustWantToBeLoved to be bonded with Peter]]. Unfortunately, Deadpool's psychosis, Peter's rejection, and Eddie's hatred corrupted it and it hasn't really looked back since, though it has had it's anger purged so it's much more mellowed out.

* UpgradeVsPrototypeFight: The Carnage symbiote is more resistant to attacks that affect Venom, is even stronger than him and Spider-Man combined, and has abilities the Venom symbiote doesn't. However, since Kasady is an utter bastard next to Brock's AntiHero (and pretty often there's other heroes like Spider-Man there to help 'soften up' Carnage), Venom most often comes out on top. This is played with during the ''Minimum Carnage'' arc, where Flash is forced to emulate Carnage in order to defeat him.
