** Though Cullen Bunn's run wasn't overly well-received, Andrea Benton aka Mania - Agent Venom's pupil/sidekick - has become immensely popular with fans. Even more impressive in that she's yet to make an appearance outside of Venom's own books, although Cullen Bunn is determined to ensure she's not forgotten and name-drops her in ''Monsters Unleashed'' #2.

** A lot of fans are confused at best over the Venom symbiote being depicted with spider emblems in flashbacks to before it bonded to Peter Parker, or symbiotes in general being shown with white spider emblems, in ''Venom: Space Knight'' and ''Venom'' Vol. 3, saying that it doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

** With the symbiote's return to Eddie, many fans are happy to have the original Venom back. Others are disappointed by possibility that both Eddie's and the symbiote's decade-or-so of CharacterDevelopment has been undone, especially in light of Eddie's actions in the preceding ''Carnage'' Vol. 2 series and the symbiote's in ''Venom: Space Knight''. With the revelation of how Flash and the symbiote being separated in ''Venom'' #150, fans of Agent Venom are even more dissatisfied.

* Narm: After Venom's design was updated to include ScaryTeeth and an OverlyLongTongue, he becomes prone to this depending on the artist. While not usually drawn ''poorly'', he can easily go from genuinely terrifying to just... ''ludicrous.'' [[http://images.wikia.com/marveldatabase/images/5/53/Venom_Dark_Origin_Vol_1_4_Textless.jpg This being a prime example.]]

** Reaction to Lee Price has been overwhelmingly negative, largely due to fans finding him to be an unlikeable character -- especially in regard to his casual abuse of the symbiote. Fans began to hate him ''even more'' however, when it was revealed that he will bond with the Mania symbiote in ''Venom Inc.'', phasing out an EnsembleDarkhorse character in exchange of [[CharacterShilling shilling]] a near-wholly loathed one.

* BaseBreakingCharacter: Venom is either one of the best ''Spider-Man'' villains of all time and/or one of Marvel's best anti-heroes or a textbook case of everything that's wrong with the NinetiesAntiHero archetype and all the other tropes associated with UsefulNotes/TheDarkAgeOfComicBooks.

Pretty much everyone agrees that [[EvilIsCool his character design is great]], but the actual character himself has proven to be divisive.

* JerkassWoobie: Eddie Brock. Despite all the terrible things he's willing to do, seeing him extremely desperate for the Symbiote can be very sad at times, not to mention the fact his normal life isn't exactly peachy either.

** The symbiote itself. [[spoiler:The ''Guardians of the Galaxy'''s retcon only amps this up further by revealing that the symbiotes are naturally benevolent and consider themselves noble warriors that help worthy hosts become true heroes. But somewhere down the line, a symbiote bonded to an unworthy host and was driven insane by bloodlust, leading to the foundation of the empire of carnivorous Lovecraftian parasites they've been portrayed as ever since the original ''Planet of the Symbiotes''. The Venom symbiote was the first in its lineage to be born without that bloodlust, and was imprisoned for wanting to be more like its noble ancestors.]] It's freed by Spider-Man and deems him a worthy host, but when he finds out it's alive he panics and rejects it. When Eddie Brock shows up about to commit suicide, the symbiote is drawn to his obsession with Spider-Man and bonds to him, but is driven insane with bloodlust, which just gets worse over time. And now it's lost Flash only to find a host in Lee Price. Initially it is very excited when it finds out Lee is a soldier like Flash but it turns out Lee is a sociopath. Now the poor thing is forced back into the role of a super-villain.
