* TheCorruptible: Leading off its cleansing being partially-undone at the end of ''Space Knight'', the Venom symbiote starts undergoing SanitySlippage as a result of bonding to Lee Price.

Furthermore, it starts developing a resistance to the medication, leading to Eddie losing control and almost eating a corrupt cop and the Looter.
