* HijackingCthulhu: Doom maintains that he has done this to the Venom symbiote, but the symbiote disagrees.

Whether he was able to do the same to the Poison that consumed him is another question.
* ISurrenderSuckers: While it's unclear if Doom's offer of a peace treaty is genuine, the symbiote wants him to use this to blindside the Avengers.

* KilledOffScreen: ''Venomverse'' leaves [[UncertainDoom his fate unknown]] due to him being whisked away by Doctor Strange at the end of his ''War Stories'' entry, but entirely absent from the main series.
