* StatusQuoIsGod:
** In ''Guardians of the Galaxy''[='=]s "Planet Venom" arc, the Venom symbiote is returned to its homeworld and purged of its corruption, becoming a force for good. The subsequent series, ''Venom: Space Knight'' and ''Venom'' Vol. 3, undid this development.
** The Venom symbiote and Eddie Brock went their separate ways in 2003, to the chagrin of many fans. In 2017, the two of them reunited.
** Eddie Brock let go of his grudge against Spider-Man after becoming Anti-Venom in 2008 and has been undergoing CharacterDevelopment ever since, while the symbiote likewise made peace with Spider-Man in 2016. The solicits for 2017's return to ''Venom'' Vol. 1 describe Eddie and the symbiote as hating Spider-Man more than ever and once-again being obsessed with eating him, marking a return to the status quo of the 1990's.

** With Mike Costa taking over for Remender in Vol. 3, the Descent arc again has been dropped, with Mania being completely absent from the books once more. Time will tell if her story is picked up in the book or another, though given the symbiote's change of hosts from Flash to Lee, [[PutOnABus it seems unlikely]].

The creature ultimately [[ComicbookDeath survived]], going on to bond to a series of hosts (many that bore grudges against Spider-Man), developing from a lonely alien creature to a [[IAmAHumanitarian bloodthirsty]] monstrosity, and it remains one of Spider-Man's deadliest foes despite of and due to the lingering [[{{Yandere}} desire it still possesses for him]]. Its popularity among creators and fans has made it among the most memorable of Spider-Man's Rogues Gallery. Its first villainous host, Eddie Brock, became a popular anti-hero in the 1990's and received his own solo run: ''Venom: Lethal Protector''. Its third host, Mac Gargan, was the longtime Spider-Man villain known as the Scorpion; and was its host from 2003 to 2010 as a member of Norman Osborn's ''Comicbook/{{Thunderbolts}}'' and the ''ComicBook/DarkAvengers'', where he impersonated Spider-Man and even got his own solo comic, ''Dark Reign: Sinister Spider-Man''. Its fourth host was long-time Spider-Man supporting character Flash Thompson, who starred in ''Venom'' Volume 2 and ''Thunderbolts'' Volume 2. After ''Venom'' Vol. 2 was cancelled, Flash appeared in the "Darkest Hours" ''Comicbook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' story arc, and worked with ComicBook/ScarletSpider to save the Microverse from ComicBook/{{Carnage}}. Agent Venom then went on to join the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''.

Venom's origin began with an alien symbiote that was used to build a new suit for Spider-Man, inspired design-wise by the second ComicBook/SpiderWoman (Julia Carpenter) during their team-up in ''ComicBook/SecretWars''. The costume change was initially unpopular with fans (although the black costume would later be brought back as fans began to like it a bit more) so it quickly went through a {{Retcon}} as an alien symbiote that wanted to bond with Peter Parker. Horrified, Spidey managed to repel the symbiote by taking advantage of its weakness to sonic noises via church bells. Some writers and editors did not like Peter's motivation at the time so there was a second RetCon that the suit [[ClothesMakeTheSuperman was more powerful]] than his ordinary suit, but was slowly driving him insane with rage.

Its popularity among creators and fans has made it among the most memorable of Spider-Man's Rogues Gallery.

Agent Venom then went on to join the ''Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy''; while it was initially hinted that Flash might not be the one wearing the symbiote, this was ultimately proven not to be the case.

Following ''ComicBook/SecretWars2015'', Venom got a new ongoing, ''Comicbook/VenomSpaceKnight'', as part of the ''ComicBook/AllNewAllDifferentMarvel'' relaunch. Following ''ComicBook/CivilWarII'', in which Venom returns to Earth, the symbiote is set to ditch Flash Thompson for a new host.

The symbiote remaining bonded to Spider-Man or bonding to a character other than Eddie Brock has been the focus of numerous {{What If}}s, and alternate versions of the character are present in alternate universes, most prominently in UltimateMarvel and ComicBook/Marvel2099.

** ''UltimateMarvel:'' The "Venom Suit" is a bio-engineered protoplasmic entity created as a cancer cure. Unfortunately, this "symbiote" is unfinished and genetically tailored to the Parker family's [=DNA=], so it starts devouring any other host that tries to wear it (like Ultimate Eddie Brock) forcing them to consume the biomass of other beings to survive.
