Peter's Universe

    Mary Jane Watson 

Mary Jane Watson

Debut: Issue #2: Along Came a Spider-Man

Peter's ex-wife and the mother of their daughter May "Mayday" Parker. The two separated after the stress of worrying about his daily superheroing got to her, only to discover that she was pregnant not long after she signed the divorce papers. The two meet monthly to catch up and talk about their daughter. The two are eating at a restaurant when the day Peter vanishes.


  • Amicable Exes: Despite their divorce, MJ is nothing but friendly and affectionate to Peter, even if they weren't as close as they once was. They still clearly care for one another and she's totally understanding when he has to ditch their monthly meeting at a fancy restaurant to go investigate a strange pillar of light in New York City.
  • Exhausted Eye Bags: Her eyebags are as bad as Peter's, likely from the stress of raising their daughter mostly on her own and her own mixed feelings towards Peter.
  • Mirthless Laughter: She laughs a hollow chuckle when Peter mentions his promise to Uncle Ben again, the same promise that drove their relationship into the ground.
  • Surprise Pregnancy: She and Peter didn't discover her pregnancy until after they signed their divorce papers.

    Tony Stark - Iron Man 

Tony Stark - Iron Man

Debut: Avengers: The Return of Thor

Also known as the Invincible Iron Man, Tony Stark is the billionaire owner of Stark Enterprises and one of the founding members of the Avengers. He's recognized as one of Earth's greatest superheroes, but his reputation soured after his actions in the events known as the superhero Civil War over the Superhuman Registration Act.
  • Easily Forgiven: Defied. Due to his actions and mishandling of the Superhuman Registration Act, Tony has burnt a lot of bridges with his friends and colleagues. It’s implied that the only reason he’s still on the Avengers is because of Steve Rogers and other superheroes like Alex make snide remarks to remind him that nothing is forgiven.
  • Insufferable Genius: It’s explained that part of his reason for pushing the SHRA even when it was basically falling apart is because Tony has the innate belief that he’s always right and he knows what’s best for the world. While his genius had aided him in being a superhero and a playboy philanthropist, when he applied it to politics and tried to impose his ideas onto his friends it just made him look like a jackass.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: After the events of Civil War, many of his associates have a continual desire to punch him in the face for actions that killed several of their friends. Alex Power bitterly brings up the possibility of the Mjölnir in New Mexico being a man-made copy because of the Thor clone Tony sicced on the Anti-Reg coalition.
  • Old Superhero: Like Peter, Tony has been active as a superhero since the 70s and neither of them are spring chickens.
  • Powered Armor: His entire powerset is based on his many iterations of the Iron Man armor.

    Torunn Thorsdóttir-Foster 

Torunn Thorsdóttir-Foster

Debut: Avengers: The Return of Thor

The daughter of the God of Thunder. She was left in the care of Thor's ex-lover, Jane Foster, when Ragnarok loomed on the horizon. She's a member of the Young Avengers, taking her father's place as the Avengers' bruiser.


  • Canon Immigrant: In-universe, Izuku mentions that he's surprised that Torunn exists in Peter's universe, as her only major appearance was in Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow.
  • Child of Two Worlds: Torrun was born and raised in Asgard for a good portion of her early childhood. However, she was then left to be raised on Earth by Jane Foster until she was well into her teenage years. Because of this, Torunn has to act out what she believes is a ‘true’ Asgardian and speaks regular English instead of Ye Olde Butchered English by default.
  • Daddy's Girl: She's extremely close to her father and is devastated when he's believed dead after Ragnarok. Her battle armor is even styled after her father's own.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: She wields her mother Sif's sword.
  • Heroic BSoD: She collapses in tears and anguish after failing to lift Mjölnir.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: It's mentioned that she has tried and failed to properly utilize her godly powers on numerous occasions and is deeply insecure about this.
  • Kid Hero: She's the teenaged superhero daughter of Thor and a member of the Young Avengers.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Having taken her father's place on the Avengers, she's implied to be incredibly powerful in her own right and has lightning coursing through her veins.
  • No True Scotsman: She's terrified of this and tires her best to be a true Asgardian, speaking in Ye Olde Butchered English, referring to Earth as Midgard, and trying (and failing) to properly utilize her godly powers. Her self-esteem plummeted from the pressure of being Thor's daughter.
  • Parental Abandonment: She was left in the care of Jane Foster while Thor and Sif went off to fight and die Ragnarok to save the universe.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: She tries to project the image of this to cover up her deep insecurities about losing her parents and living up to their legacy.
  • Shock and Awe: As part of her inheritance as the daughter of the God of Thunder. she's ashamed of how much trouble she has controlling it.
  • Super Strength: As part of her Asgardian heritage, she possesses this and believes she would be worthy of wielding Mjölnir. She's heartbroken when she realizes she can't lift it after it falls into New Mexico, which she takes as a sign that she isn't worthy.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Her mother's sword is the last thing Torunn has of her. When she learns that Mjölnir was sighted in New Mexico, she immediately flies over to claim it, as it's her father's most prized possession.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: It's implied that despite her having immense power and potential, she's not very good at using her godly abilities. This contributes to her low self-esteem in living up to her family's legacy.
  • "Well Done, Daughter!" Girl: She's always seeking the approval of her father and is self-conscious over her failings in combat compared to him, a born warrior.

    Thor Odinson 

Thor Odinson

Debut: Avengers: The Return of Thor

Asgard's mightiest warrior and the God of Thunder. He is one of the Avengers' earliest members and among its most powerful. He and his wife Sif ventured off with the other Asgardians to fight in Ragnarok, leaving Torunn in the care of Jane Foster to protect her.

  • Back from the Dead: He died in Ragnarok but was channeled once more through Dr. Donald Blake.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: He and Sif left Torunn on Midgard so she wouldn't be caught up and killed in the universe-spanning war of Ragnarok.
  • Good Parents: Torunn clearly adores him and was heartbroken when he died.
  • Lightning Bruiser: The God of Thunder himself, whose ability to channel the storm is only matched by his incredible strength, speed, and toughness, making him one of the mightiest Avengers.
  • Papa Wolf: He apparently did something to break the cycle of Ragnarok to save his daughter from dying in it, sacrificing his life in the process.

    Conan the Barbarian 

Conan the Barbarian

Debut: The Creeping Beyond (A Conan the Barbarian Tale) Part 1

A Cimmerian barbarian from Earth’s distant Hyborian Age, which occurred after the fall of Atlantis but before the recording of history. During his many adventures he was a mercenary, a pirate, a thief, a gladiator, and eventually became a king. But before he took up any throne, Conan was tasked to slay a sorcerer called Druig at the behest of a nobleman called Zuras


  • Anti-Hero: While Conan does have a sense of honor and the sight of innocents being harmed angers him, he is still a barbarian who kills for riches and fulfilling his base desires.
  • Barbarian Hero: The archetypal example.
  • Canon Welding: Conan’s place in the story is due to how Conan and the Hyborian Age are placed into Marvel’s history in the licensed comics.
  • Does Not Like Magic: Due to sorcerers usually trying to kill him and the mysterious nature of their craft, Conan has taken to instantly disliking sorcerers and their art.
  • Genius Bruiser: Conan, despite looking like a brainless barbarian, does have a good head on his shoulder and a firm understanding of tactics. He distracts the Deviants by throwing a rock so he could strike from behind, and tries to focus on the slower more powerful one so it wouldn’t take advantage of his exhausted state should he focus on its quicker companion.
  • Genre Savvy: Due to his many encounters with sorcerers over his adventures, Conan has picked up on their tendency to have a flair for the dramatic. As such, he decides climbing the highest tower of the castle would be the easiest way for him and Elric to find Druig.
  • Made of Iron: Conan is able to take on two Deviants and despite being injured by one who’s tentacles are described as a whip, he continues to fight and make his enemies pay for spilling his blood.
  • Posthumous Character: By Peter’s time, Conan has long since been dead.
  • Really Gets Around: Conan considers women to be the few important focuses of his life, aside from riches, food, and wine. In both the comics and the original stories Conan had a tendency to sleep with a new girl almost every tale.

    Elric of Melnibone 

Elric of Melnibone

Debut: The Creeping Beyond (A Conan the Barbarian Tale) Part 1

An albino sorcerer who is the exiled emperor of Melnibone. An Eternal Champion fated to keep the balance between Law and Chaos throughout his own world and through the Multiverse. He wields the black blade Stormbringer, which sucks out the souls of all it cuts to bring strength to its owner. He comes to Conan’s aid during the barbarian’s struggle against the Deviants, and has his own reasons to aid Conan’s quest.


  • Canon Welding: Elric’s presence in the story is due to his adventure with Conan being in the Marvel licensed comics. His occasional travels through the Multiverse also lend credibility to his presence.
  • Deadpan Snarker: In contrast to Conan’s blunt nature, Elric prefers to snipe at the barbarian’s lack of knowledge in high concepts such as the multiverse and his general way of living.
  • The Emperor: Elric was the 428th-and-last-Emperor of Melnibone.
  • Evil Albino: An albino who’s goals are morally dubious and who wields a soul-sucking sword.
  • Magic Knight: Elric is both a sorcerer and knows how to wield his cursed sword.
  • Posthumous Character: Like Conan, he’s long dead by the time Peter travels to Izuku’s universe.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Even though he regularly stares down Eldritch Abominations and sucks out the souls of of his victims, he's terrified of heights.

    Melissa Shield - Spider-Woman 

Melissa Shield - Spider-Woman

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/melissa_sheild.png

Melissa is the daughter of All Might's best friend and former sidekick, David Shield, who also developed All Might's costume. Like Izuku, Melissa was born Quirkless, deciding to become an inventor who produces support items for Heroes to help them save even more lives. But her life is forever changed when she's bitten by a radioactive spider, gaining all the proportionate abilities of one. She juggles her research, social life, and Hero work as best she can as the amazing Spider-Woman.


  • All Webbed Up: She has her web-shooters and her car's mounted web-cannons to inflict this on the criminals she apprehends.
  • Alternate Self: To the Melissa Shield of the canon timeline, as she's bitten by a radioactive spider, gaining powers of her own in the process.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Downplayed. Melissa is fit and trim, but she's closer to Korra in build than Mikasa Ackerman.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Her costume is primarily deep blue and pink.
  • Building Swing: Wouldn't be a Spider-Person without this, though she prefers to drive the Spider-Mobile unless she's in a hurry.
  • Composite Character: This version of her takes cues from Spider-Gwen, the House of M, and Dan Slott's take on Spider-Man as a teenage girl in over-her-head with her responsibilities and fame while also utilizing a lot of tech to supplement her powers.
  • Cool Car: Her Spider-Mobile is a sports car modified to be able to ride along walls and equipped with web-cannons that lock onto and pin her foes to walls, objects, and floors. She's possessive of it and is annoyed when Martin jumps into the driver's seat.
  • Everyone Is Related: It turns out that her mother’s name is Mary Shield-Brock, and she has an uncle named Carl and a cousin named Eddie. Meaning that Melissa is Eddie Brock’s cousin in this universe.
  • Failed a Spot Check: Played for Drama. In her rush to make it to a raid on one of the Inner Demons' hideouts, she neglects to insert the last two screws to the electric eel cage, which allows the glass cage to shatter and electrocute Max.
  • Famed In-Story: She publicized her new powers after discovering their origins and developing her own web-fluid, becoming a sensation overnight as the only known Quirkless person to have gained powers from a spider bite. The Izuku of her universe admires her from the get-go for this as a formerly Quirkless person himself.
  • Foil:
    • To Izuku, as they both were formerly Quirkless teens that had spider powers thrust on them by a twist of fate. But while Izuku’s spider was created through inter-dimensional forces, her spider received a fatal dose of radiation. While Izuku is being taught by Peter Parker due to his inexperience with the powers, Melissa had no teacher and adjusted to them fairly quickly. While Izuku is basically a normal teenager just starting high school, Melissa is currently enrolled in college and is a pseudo-celebrity due to the strange origins of her powers.
    • To Martin Li. They're both young Heroes who use their equipment to swing around and outmaneuver their foes. Martin is highly successful, arrogant, and laser-focused on taking down the Demons. Melissa is new to the industry, constantly tied up in her many responsibilities, and is far more down-to-earth.
  • Genius Bruiser: She designed most of her own tech with her father's help and has all of the standard spider powers. This includes nanotechnology that she used to make her suit, her heavily customized sports car, and various other gadgets. Her penthouse has a laboratory in it and she's always looking for ways to become more efficient.
  • It's All My Fault: Has this along with My God, What Have I Done? when she realizes that she neglected to insert the last two screws to the cage in her rush to meet up with Martin, which caused the Electro System to malfunction and electrocute Max.
    Melissa: Oh, Jesus… Oh, God no. Max… Max I..
  • Meganekko: She used to be this before the spider bite.
  • My Suit Is Also Super: The Leopardon System she developed allows her to change her clothes on the fly via a Transformation Sequence and voice command. Her costume looks like spandex, but is actually a form of armor that can protect her from low-caliber firearms and knives. The mask comes with an HUD much like Peter's and even has spider legs that come out of the back in case she's caught off-guard.
  • Never Gets Fat: She relishes how her spider-enhanced teenage metabolism lets her dig into donuts and other sweets for breakfast without worrying about getting putting on weight.
  • Nice Girl: Melissa sympathizes with Toomes, as he was screwed over by his business partner, and plans to send him a large portion of his flying apparatus’ profits when it’s commercialized even though he tried to kill her. Like Izuku, she got into the business to help others.
  • Projectile Webbing: She takes this one step further than the average Spider-Person by equipping her Cool Car with web cannons.
  • Science Hero: She and her dad are scientists and inventors, having made most of Melissa's equipment themselves. Even though she's an active Hero, she still devotes a great deal of time to scientific research and has a lab in her penthouse.
  • Super Strength: She easily lifts the hulking Crusher Hogan as if he were a basketball and has to hold back when dealing with the Demons so she doesn't break their necks.
  • Triple Shifter: Deconstructed. She has to balance her schoolwork, social life, her internship with Martin, and her research all at the same time. She has so many responsibilities that they frequently overlap and stretch her thin, which ends in tragedy when she neglects to place two screws into the electric eel cage and properly install the rest, allowing the cage to shatter and electrocuting Max.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: She unknowingly purchases Toomes' equipment from Bestman without knowing who the original inventor is, sending Toomes on a murderous rampage. Later on, in her rush to meet up with Martin, she neglects to insert two screws into the electric eel cage. This allows it to shatter and douse Max with electrically charged water that is implied to be turning him into Electro.
  • Wall Crawling: She sticks to the cage of the ring while dangling Crusher from the top of it.
  • Willfully Weak: She has to hold back while fighting others, as her super-strong blows can easily break people's necks.

    Alexsei "Rhino" Systevich 

Alexsei "Rhino" Systevich

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

The security guard for Melissa's lab in New York City. A hulking seven-foot-tall man with a Quirk that gives him a razor-sharp horn, he's a jovial and friendly guy to his coworkers, but not above ribbing them while on the job.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Instead of being a common crook-turned-supervillain, he's an honest security guard Melissa hired in case her lab's security systems somehow fail.
  • Animal Motif: Rhinos, thanks to his sharp, curved horn and huge physique.
  • Bearer of Bad News: He calls Melissa to tell her that something has gone horribly wrong with the Electro System and Max has been caught in the middle of it.
  • Gentle Giant: For a huge guy with a sharp horn jutting from his forehead, he's a friendly guy who happily buys donuts for his boss.
  • In-Series Nickname: Max calls him "Rhino" for his horn and hulking physique. Aleksei doesn't like this.
  • Servile Snarker: He cheekily ribs his boss over her love life and says he doesn't need to pay the cable bill because Melissa provides all of the teen drama he could ever want to watch.
  • Shipper on Deck: He ships Melissa with Harry, much to her embarrassment and Max's annoynace.
    Aleksei: [once she's out of earshot] She totally likes him.
    Max: [rolling his eyes] Can't you watch a soap opera like a normal person instead of obsessing over her love life?
    Aleksei: Why would I do that? Teenagers, especially teenage Heroes, give me a soap opera without the cable bill!
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: He's described as having dark blue hair.

    Max Dillon 

Max Dillon

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

Melissa's lab technician, he's helping her with the Electro System designed to power her lab. His Quirk gives him needles on his fingers that allow him to harmlessly conduct electricity from one place to another through his body.


  • Black and Nerdy: He's a skilled and methodical lab technician.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: His appearance is styled after Jamie Foxx with the same tooth gap Max was given in The Amazing Spider Man 2.
  • Electric Black Guy: He's an African-American man whose Quirk lets him conduct electricity through his body. He's later implied to be on the path to becoming the supervillain Electro.
  • Harmless Electrocution: Horribly averted. When the cage holding the souped-up electric eels breaks, Max is doused in high-charge chemicals that burn him alive and leave him looking as though he'd been dipped in the sun.
  • Nerds Are Sexy: He's a lab technician who happens to look like an A-list movie star.

    Harry Osborn 

Harry Osborn

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

Melissa's friend and the son of Norman Osborn, CEO of Oscorp. An aspiring rocker, he's the leader of "The Hobgoblins". Charming and carefree, he chafes under his father's insistence that he inherit the family business.


  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In contrast to his usually nebbish and nerdy looks, Harry is described as handsome and well-built on top of being a veritable Chick Magnet who manages to get Melissa flustered over him.
  • Brilliant, but Lazy: Melissa notes that he isn't necessarily bad at chemistry. He can get the jargon and mechanics just fine. He just has little interest in studying it.
  • The Casanova: He's constantly making passes at cute girls he meets, including Melissa, which has gotten him in hot water on more than one occasion.
  • Chick Magnet: Girls swoon over him for his rock star attitude, good looks, and winning smile.
  • Your Cheating Heart: He used to be in a relationship with Mary Jane Watson, but she caught him cheating on her with Liz Allan, which made them break up. This wasn't the first time this happened and his antics have put him on thin ice with most of his band.

    Norman Osborn 

Norman Osborn

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

CEO of Oscorp and noted expert of various fields of science including nanotechnology. While he is a successful businessman and scientist, Norman seeks to bring his company to greater heights and sees Harry’s rocker aspirations as a danger to the legacy of the Osborns.


  • Color Motifs: Wears a green tie, which hints at his connection to the fact that most Norman Osborns in the series become the Green Goblin sooner or later.
  • Evil Redhead: While he hasn’t done anything evil, he is noticeably swarmy and turns his nose at the bodega that’s very low class to his standards.
  • Like A Daughter To Me: Norman enjoys talking with Melissa about science and praises Melissa’s advancements with her career. He even offers her a place in Oscorp so she can unlock her true potential. Harry lampshades this saying that the only thing likely stopping Norman from just adopting her is the fact David Shield is still in the picture.

    Martin Li - Wraith 

Martin Li - Wraith

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

A rising Hero based in New York, Martin is Melissa's mentor and boss, teaching her the ins and outs of Hero work as his sidekick. Young, brash, and arrogant, his juvenile behavior and love of the limelight belie his incredible passion for helping others as well as his vehement grudge against the Inner Demons.


  • The Ace: He's a Grade Skipper who became a Hero at 16, runs his highly successful and praised F.E.A.S.T. shelters, and is fairly wealthy through his own investments.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Most versions of Martin are supervillains and the heads of the Inner Demons he's trying to stop. Here he's a successful teenaged superhero.
  • Adorkable: His stupid-looking Hero costume, almost relentless energy and cheer, and his constant attempts to puff up his ego make him as endearing as he is annoying.
  • Age Lift: Most versions of Martin are grown men, but here he's a teenager around Melissa's age.
  • Attention Whore: He loves to bask in the limelight and frequently shows off just because. After foiling a bank robbery, he immediately goes around to pass out his own autographs.
  • Beneath the Mask: At least part of Martin's ego is a facade he's using to hide his deep-seated insecurities and grief over losing his parents to Mr. Negative.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: The arrogant, hyperactive teenager happens to be a genius Hero, philanthropist, and businessman.
  • Clothing Combat: His Quirk allows him to telekinetically manipulate the elastic bands he wears and make them stronger than steel, deflecting the weapons of the Demons and tossing them around with ease. He can also use this for transportation and to quickly reposition himself by slingshotting himself around.
  • Composite Character: Martin has the backstory of his Spider-Man (PS4) counterpart, but his superheroic alter ego is based on the anti-villainous identity used by Yuri Watanabe. Personality-wise, he's an Expy of arrogant Stock Shonen Heroes like Black☆Star.
  • Decomposite Character: Martin Li and Mr. Negative are usually one-in-the-same, with the latter being Martin's Superpowered Evil Side. Here, they're separate people.
  • Doesn't Like Guns: Martin sneers at those who rely on guns to fight, calling them cowards for not facing him with their bare hands. He actually praises a Demon for trying to take him on with an axe, before kicking him through a car.
  • Dynamic Entry: He makes his first on-screen appearance by kicking a Demon in the face with a flying kick after wrapping him up in cloth.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Martin is introduced when he calls Melissa to tell her to meet him at a bank robbery so some of his awesomeness will rub off on her. He spends his first physical appearance rocketing into the fray while shouting louder than an entire firefight and kicking the asses of the Demons without a care in the world.
  • Foil:
    • To Melissa. They're both young Heroes who use their equipment to swing around and outmaneuver their foes. Martin is highly successful, arrogant, and laser-focused on taking down the Demons. Melissa is new to the industry, constantly tied up in her many responsibilities, and is far more down-to-earth.
    • To Bakugou. They're both Insufferable Geniuses with enormous egos and a constant drive to succeed. But while Bakugou grew up in a stable household and placed in an echo chamber of praise, Martin lost his parents when he was young and clawed his way up by himself. Their ideologies are also opposed: Bakugou wants to be a Hero to prove how strong he is, while Martin seeks to do good to balance out all of the bad in the world.
  • Genki Guy: He's described as perpetually hyper, yelling rather than speaking while calling Melissa.
    Martin: [jumping into the driver's seat of the Spider-Mobile] Come on, Melissa! Time's a-wastin! YAHOO!
  • The Gift: Martin is talented at pretty much everything. He skipped several grades to become a Hero at 16 (for references, the next youngest known Hero is Hawks, who became at a Hero at 18), runs a successful series of homeless shelters, and possesses a small fortune thanks to his own investments.
  • Grade Skipper: He skipped ahead in school thanks to his natural talent and constant drive to improve himself, becoming a Pro Hero at 16 when most others are still starting out.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: His Quirk seems to be the ability to manipulate the cloth bands he wears as a Hero and make them stronger than steel. While not as obviously destructive as Super Strength or Having a Blast, he decimates a force of Demons with swords, guns, and axes almost entirely on his own with ease.
  • Hidden Depths: On the surface, he's a boisterous, attention-loving media hog who constantly shows off and hands out his own merchandise. But he's devoted to helping others any way he can and shows a noticeably softer side to himself while speaking to Melissa in his office, thanking her for showing up and helping him out. His cheer and arrogance gives way to violent aggression and irritability whenever he's interrogating the Demons, showing that he's still grieving the loss of his parents.
  • Ill Boy: He was diagnosed with a rare disease as a child, prompting his parents to immigrate to the U.S. in hopes of having him undergo an experimental procedure to cure him. It seems to have worked, as he's a hyperactive and healthy teenager in the present day.
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Martin puffs himself up and stokes his own ego out of fear of being considered weak, as Mr. Negative taunted him for being sickly and failing to stop his parent's murder.
  • Insufferable Genius: He considers himself the greatest Hero in the world and tends to walk around like he owns the place, constantly showing off and handing out his own autographed photos. Even other Heroes find it difficult to like him and Melissa only puts up with him because of all the things he can teach her. But he backs up his ego with his incredible talent as both a Hero and a businessman.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Tempted to do this to a member of the Demons taunting him until Melissa stops him.
  • Just a Kid: Martin exploited this while dealing with much older businessmen in the corporate sphere, allowing them to underestimate him as a knuckleheaded kid before walking away with the better deal.
  • Lethal Chef: In a non-canon July 4th omake, Martin is sulking in the corner while his guests pick at the charred hamburgers and hot dogs, implying that he's the one to blame.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He's fast enough to dodge gunfire and strong enough to kick people through windows with ease. He can also use his Quirk to make the cloth he wears harder than steel, easily deflecting a sword empowered by Mr. Negative.
  • Men Can't Keep House: Melissa speculates that Martin's office is only clean because Asuga cleans up after him or makes him do it himself.
  • Nice Guy: Underneath his arrogant veneer is a good kid wholly devoted to helping others as a Hero and a philanthropist. He's cheerful and affectionate to those close to him or under his care at F.E.A.S.T. and considers it "life or death" to be on time for the birthday party of a young girl whose family was just evicted from their apartment.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: His cheer and constant good will towards the downtrodden makes it all the more terrifying when he becomes irritable and vengeful after a raid on a suspected Demon hideout.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's 5'6'' not including his two-inches of spiked up Shonen Hair and regularly kicks the asses of grown men.
  • Revenge: Martin shows a much darker side of himself whenever the Inner Demons are involved. He's determined to flush out Mr. Negative and bring him to justice by any means necessary, even if it means roughing up helpless Demons whose asses he's already kicked.
  • Rummage Sale Reject: His Hero costume consists of a purple t-shirt with skulls on it, numerous elastic bands and scarves wrapped around his arms, knees, and face, a pair of Zipperiffic cargo shorts, and "shinobi" sandals straight out of Naruto. The narration even calls him a fashion disaster.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: He has several of these wrapped around his face as a mask while working as Wraith. He unfurls them when he needs extra bands to restrain others, wearing them more like regular scarves from then on.
  • Shonen Hair: His hair is slicked back and spiky, adding two inches to his height. The narration makes a point of describing it as ridiculously greasy, which shows that it's an intentional stylistic choice on Martin's part.
  • Smarter Than You Look: His juvenile behavior and appearance tends to throw people off when they first meet him, as he's known to be a genius and a wealthy businessman. He weaponizes this against his business rivals, who tend to underestimate him in the boardroom until it's too late.
    It turns out when one side thinks the other is or is representing a loudmouthed idiot, the 'idiot' can walk away with the better deal.
  • Sole Survivor: He's the only survivor of the attack that killed his parents and all of the doctors and researchers treating him.
  • Teen Genius: He's around eighteen years old and a Pro Hero for years when most people are just starting out on top of being a successful businessman.
  • You Killed My Father: Martin's parents were murdered by Mr. Negative and Martin is determined to get even with him.

    Asuga Shiki 

Asuga Shiki

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

Martin's personal assistant and Childhood Friend. She handles the day-to-day tasks of running F.E.A.S.T. while he's running off to be a Hero and promoting his work.


  • Beleaguered Assistant: Melissa wonders how a calm and professional girl like her could end up working for someone as hyperactive and brash as Martin. She's implied to be the one who cleans up after his messes and badgers him into actually cleaning up his own office. By the time Melissa and Martin return from a day of beating up Demons, she's clearly exhausted from managing everything on her own.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: She handles most of the "boring stuff" for Martin, including making sure F.E.A.S.T. is running smoothly, managing his finances, and representing him in corporate affairs in his absence. She also handles parties and was forced to learn how to bake a Dominican cake in a single day.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has blue hair, which is hardly unusual in the My Hero Academia universe.

    Mr. Negative 

Mr. Negative

Debut: Sidestory: Tangled Web of Spider-Woman Issue 9

The elusive leader of the Demons. He murdered Martin's parents years ago, which spurred Martin's desire to become a Hero both to counteract Negative's evil and to avenge everyone he's killed.


  • Adaptation Origin Connection: Zigzagged. He apparently has a bone to pick with Norman Osborn as in Spider-Man (PS4), prompting him to attack the lab where Martin was getting treated and killing everyone inside. However, unlike the game, no reason is given for this grudge.
  • Decomposite Character: Martin Li and Mr. Negative are usually one-in-the-same, with the latter being Martin's Superpowered Evil Side. Here, they're separate people.
  • The Ghost: The only one who's ever seen him is Martin, having somehow escaped detection at every turn. Negative's subordinates constantly allude to him as their master, but no one seems to know what he looks like aside from the description Martin gave the police.
  • Yin-Yang Bomb: He seems to be able to charge his subordinates' weapons with white and blank energy, creating waves of destruction with every swing. However, they don't seem to be powerful enough to cut through the cloth enhanced by Martin's Quirk.

    Peter Parker - Spider-Man 

Peter Parker

Debut: Sidestory: Marvels Academia

Peter is a Quirkless teenager who received amazing powers after being bitten by a radioactive spider. He attends Xavier Academy, the most prestigious Hero school in America. Despite his admission, he didn't bother trying to stop a bank robber being chased by Daredevil, a decision he comes to regret when that same robber killed his Uncle Ben.


  • Affectionate Nickname: He's rarely called "Peter" and most of his friends call him "Petey" and "Pete".
  • Alliterative Name: Peter Parker. Enough said.
  • Brainy Brunette: A chemical engineering genius and brown-haired.
  • Combo Platter Powers: He presumably has all the proportionate abilities of a spider, like most of the other Spiders in the multiverse.
  • Composite Character: He idolizes Tony Stark in the same vein as his MCU counterpart, but his overall personality takes cues from the original Lee-Ditko era of Spider-Man and The Spectacular Spider-Man.
  • Foil:
    • To Izuku, both in canon and in the main story. Both spent years being Quirkless and raised by a loving family. Both Izuku and Peter were bullied relentlessly for their nerdy habits and Quirklessness by the resident bully while their peers either laughed or looked the other way. And in the case of the main story's Izuku, both were bitten by a spider that granted them amazing powers. But while Izuku saw it as a sign to chase his dream to become a Hero, Peter saw it as a way to make money for his aunt and uncle. While Izuku was mentored by an experienced Hero, Peter had no mentor and aside from his lessons at the Xavier Academy learned everything on his own. While Izuku did, for a time, revel in his powers he felt terrible about the implications. In contrast, Peter went through a power trip and saw it as an opportunity to not take crap from anybody, callously ignoring a criminal he could've stopped with minimal effort which leads to his uncle's death. Izuku wanted to be a Hero from the beginning while Peter had no real desire to be a true Hero until he learned "With great power, there must also come great responsibility".
    • To his older counterpart. While the Peter of Earth 2018.562 has a chip on his shoulder and can be a jerk even to his friends, the main story's Peter is older and extremely approachable both in and out of the mask.
    • To Uraraka. Both of them became a Hero not out of an innate desire to do good, but to make money for their financially troubled families. But while Uraraka is still willing to do her best to be a great Hero, Peter initially had no desire to do anything really heroic and only later learned that he must do his best to live up to the ideals.
  • Genius Bruiser: This is Peter Parker. He built his web-shooters from scratch without any help and was always known as the resident science nerd before getting bitten by the spider.
  • The Glasses Gotta Go: He lost the need for glasses after the spider bite.
  • Hero-Worshipper: He's a huge fan of Tony Stark, America's greatest Hero. The thought of meeting him in person is enough to make him pass out from glee.
  • It's All My Fault: He blames himself for his Uncle Ben's death and has frequent nightmares of that night.
    Peter: Oh god... If I had stopped him then, If I... I didn't and now Uncle Ben... He's dead because of me...!
    All my fault... all my fault...
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Daredevil chastises Peter for not trying to stop the bank robber. While America's views on Quirk laws are unknown, Peter has a point that he's only a student and therefore a civilian who shouldn't be trying to stop crime himself yet. If he lived in Japan, he would have certainly gotten arrested for it.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's abrasive and constantly makes snipes and jabs at everyone, even his close friends. He's especially cold towards Flash and quickly puts on a scowl around him. But underneath it all, this is still Peter Parker, and he's an aspiring Hero all the same.
  • The Knights Who Say "Squee!": Attending Xavier Academy didn't diminish Peter's admiration for Tony Stark in the slightest and he faints from sheer excitement when he learns that Tony is chaperoning their school trip.
  • Likes Older Women: He has a crush on Betty Brant, an adult woman and a secretary at Xavier Academy, sporting a Luminescent Blush while talking to her.
  • Nerd Glasses: He's described as having big, round glasses before the spider bite corrected his vision.
  • Only in It for the Money: He decided to become a Hero not out of a desire to do good, but because the job pays well and he wants to support his aunt and uncle. After Ben's death, Peter decides to take the job more seriously and become a "true Hero" who Ben would be proud of.
  • Projectile Webbing: Web-shooters are a Spider-Man's staple.
  • Sad Clown: Underneath his constant jokes and insults is a boy beaten down by society and haunted by the consequences of his negligence.
  • Smug Super: Wanda describes him as "cocky... oh so cocky" and on a power trip after gaining his abilities.
  • Super Reflexes: He catches Wanda with one hand and all the books she was carrying with the other when they first meet.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Pietro make constant jabs at each other but always laugh it off in the end.
  • Working-Class Hero: His aunt and uncle always had trouble making ends meet, and things only got worse after Ben died. Peter initially declines to join his class on their field trip to U.A. because he thought it too expensive for May to afford.
  • When He Smiles: He laughs and gives an honest, unvarnished smile while telling the others that he's going on the trip after all. Wanda wishes she'd see that face more.

One of Peter's closest friends at Xavier Academy and Pietro's twin sister. A bright but mischievous young woman, her Quirk, "Hex", allows her to manipulate probability for a variety of effects from tripping people to making their Twinkies explode.


  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Wanda gets jealous and embarrassed when she learns that Peter is crushing on Betty Brant, a woman five years older than him. She thought boys should be into people their own age and that Americans are weird for liking older women.
  • Color Motif: Red and black.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: The Maximoffs are orphans who drifted from place to place as no one would take them in because of their relation to Magneto.

  • Meet Cute: She meets Peter when she tripped on a raised piece of sidewalk, letting him catch her with one hand and her books with the other.
  • Mundane Utility: She often uses her Quirk to mess around with her brother when he dismisses her.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: Her father is Magneto, one of the world's most infamous pro-Quirk terrorists and the mentor to the likes of Destro, the leader of the Meta Liberation Army. She and Pietro were harassed constantly for this, forcing them to turn to thievery to get by after they're orphaned.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Due to being ostracized for their relation to Magneto, the Maximoffs decided that they might as well be as villainous as society makes them out to be and turned to theft.
  • Winds of Destiny, Change: Her Quirk allows her to manipulate probability to cause all sorts of mishaps.

    Pietro Maximoff - Quicksilver 

Pietro Maximoff

Debut: Sidestory: Marvels Academia

  • Astonishingly Appropriate Appearance: He has silver-white hair, matching the name of his Quirk, "Quicksilver".
  • Color Motif: White and silver.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: The Maximoffs are orphans who drifted from place to place as no one would take them in because of their relation to Magneto. They eventually turned to theft to survive, only to be captured by a mysterious organization and experimented on for years until they're freed by Logan Howlett.
  • I Owe You My Life: He, Wanda, and Laura were all rescued by Logan Howlett, the Wolverine and the last X-Man before his death. They all decided to become Heroes to honor his memory.
  • Super Speed: He can move faster than the eye can follow, but this takes considerable effort on his part.
  • Sins of Our Fathers: Her father is Magneto, one of the world's most infamous pro-Quirk terrorists and the mentor to the likes of Destro, the leader of the Meta Liberation Army. He and Wanda were harassed constantly for this, forcing them to turn to thievery to get by after they're orphaned.
  • Then Let Me Be Evil: Due to being ostracized for their relation to Magneto, the Maximoffs decided that they might as well be as villainous as society makes them out to be and turned to theft.
  • Technology Marches On: Peter mocks Pietro for going to arcades like some ninety-year-old, but Pietro snipes back by saying that they're the only games that can keep up with him nowadays.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Peter make constant jabs at each other, but they always laugh it off at the end.

    Eugene "Flash" Thompson 

Eugene "Flash" Thompson

Debut: Sidestory: Marvels Academia

Peter's Childhood Friend and ex-bully. Despite their rocky relationship, Flash regrets the years he spent tormenting Peter and tries to make it up to him whenever possible, but his execution leaves much to be desired. His Quirk, "Symbiote", turns his blood into a suit around him that enhances his physical attributes.


  • Foil: Like Bakugou, he had spent years bullying the resident Quirkless kid and nerd. But while Bakugou did his bullying from a mixture of wounded pride and arrogance, Flash did it out of frustration towards the abuse inflicted on him by his father. While Bakugou never received punishment for his actions, Flash was caught and punished once a teacher stumbled on him bullying Peter. Because of this, Flash is regretful and trying to change himself for the better while Bakugou refuses to change his abrasive attitude.
  • Jerk Jock: Was this in the past, but he has since mellowed out considerably.
  • Jerkass Realization: After finally getting caught bullying Peter, he realized just how much of an ass he was and tries to apologize and be nicer to him. Unfortunately, old habits die hard, and his tactless delivery only stokes Peter's resentment for him.
  • Reformed Bully: He bullied Peter for most of their lives, but months of mandated counseling and the threat of expulsion made Flash reevaluate his priorities and get better.

Earth-2018.688

    Katsuki Bakugou - Venom 

Katsuki Bakugou - Venom

Debut: Sidestory: Let the Devil In

Once the star student of Aldera Junior High, Katsuki Bakugou seemed destined to attend U.A. High School and become a top-ranking Hero. But with his talents came hubris. After he was caught smoking and drinking after school, he flew into a rage and brutally beat his longtime victim, Izuku Midoriya, in broad daylight, dooming Katsuki's chances of ever attending U.A. His washed out life changes after he stumbles across a crashed spaceship on a nightly walk to clear his head and bonds with the alien passenger inside, the symbiote named Venom.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: This version of Bakugou has Eddie Brock's unfortunate tendency to never take responsibility for his own mistakes, blaming Izuku for ruining his life when it was his own actions that crushed his aspirations. It's especially noticeable when compared to his mainstream counterpart, who feels Peter Parker levels of responsibility when All Might exhausts the last of his power on the mission to rescue him.
  • Anti-Hero: He's a self-entitled prick who wants nothing more than to beat the crap out of the person he blames for his own problems. He's menacing, has little regard for property damage, never takes responsibility for his own mistakes, and is a thoroughly unpleasant person to be around. That said, he puts his life on the line repeatedly out of a genuine desire to save people and stop Carnage.
  • Berserk Button: Anything involving Izuku will tape Bakugou's button down.
  • Big Eater: He eats and drinks a lot in order to keep Venom satiated, going through soda, chips, candy bars, and armfuls of convenience store food by the time he manages to hunt down Moonfish.
  • Brutal Honesty: He tells the mourning Venom to get over Eddie already instead of constantly wailing and comparing the two of them. No matter how much Venom wants it, Eddie is dead and his new partner isn't. Venom doesn't take kindly to this at first, but admits that Bakugou is right in this case.
  • Car Fu: He uses a family's car as a shield against Moonfish before detonating it to finish the fight.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Thanks to being bonded with Venom, Bakugou has gained almost all the powers of Spider-Man along with his Quirk. He also has a pronounced Healing Factor that lets him shrug off puncture and slashing wounds and makes gratuitous use of combat tentacles.
  • Composite Character: Of Bakugou and Eddie Brock as seen in Venom (2018). In addition to Bakugou's usual history, his washed out status and inability to acknowledge his own faults are taken from Eddie.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His costume is black-and-white as per Venom standard, but he fights out of a genuine desire to help people and stop psychopaths like Carnage. Unfortunately, he's terrible at conveying this.
  • Destructive Savior: He does a good job of taking down Carnage's followers one-by-one. He doesn't do a good job of keeping the surrounding buildings intact, between his explosions and the collateral of having two symbiote wearers clash.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: He's outraged when Izuku brings him up during an interview as "a friend who made some bad choices" and refuses to be the subject of a sob story.
  • Entitled Bastard: He feels as though the world owes him and that he should have been the one to go to U.A. instead of Izuku. As a result, he's constantly pissed and never seems to acknowledge that his situation is one of his own making. This feeling is only exacerbated by Venom, who agrees with him and encourages this behavior. After saving a teenage girl and her little brother, he's annoyed that they didn't thank him afterward, even though he had screamed at them earlier.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He thinks nothing of wanting to beat Izuku within an inch of his life for ruining his own, but is horrified by the murders left in Carnage's wake.
  • Experienced Protagonist: By the events of the story, Bakugou has already been Venom for several months and is infamous throughout Musutafu for his actions.
  • Explosive Propulsion: He's able to propel himself through the air by releasing constant explosions from his hands.
  • Foil: To Cletus. Both of them are highly intelligent and violent symbiote users. But while Bakugou fights to save people and is given bad press for his Destructive Savior tendencies, Cletus is adored by his followers and wants to expand his Religion of Evil to turn Earth into a living hell. Bakugou is also a case of Sir Swears-a-Lot, while Cletus is well-spoken and eloquent.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: While acting as Venom, he can heal from puncture wounds that go through his arm easily. But it still hurts and he takes special care to ward off things that could damage his brain.
  • Hand Blast: His explosions are released from his palms.
  • Having a Blast: He still has his Quirk, Explosion, which he uses to great effect against the sound-sensitive symbiotes.
  • Heroic Host: Downplayed. He already had powers before meeting Venom and is quite the Jerkass, but he ultimately uses his powers to fight for good, even if some of his motivations are less than heroic.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: He's constantly getting bad press due to his brutality, terrifying appearance, and the property damage he causes. The fact he’s fighting a one-man war against Carnage with no outside help doesn't help matters, nor does his tendency to flee from the scene once the Heroes arrive.
  • Hidden in Plain Sight: The Venom costume completely conceals his identity and build. He can blend back into a crowd simply by having Venom recede out of sight and walking around in his street clothes.
  • Horror Hunger: He has to keep eating in order to keep Venom full while staving off the latter's urges to eat things like living dogs.
  • I Coulda Been a Contender!: He's constantly pissed about not attending U.A. and only gets even more angry when he hears how Izuku earned second place at the Sports Festival.
  • Inadequate Inheritor: Despite their compatibility, Venom constantly compares him negatively to Eddie, who was far more patient and understanding with Venom than Bakugou is.
  • In the Hood: He tries to avoid unwanted attention by keeping his face hidden in a hoodie while he and Venom are looking for Carnage and his lackeys.
  • It's All About Me: He rarely registers how his actions affect others. After beating Izuku to a pulp and leaving burns all over him, Bakugou is remorseless and only feels annoyed that Deku tanked his chances at getting into U.A.
  • Jerkass: He's loud, crude and blames everyone but himself for his own problems. One of his motivations for helping Venom is the opportunity to take out his frustrations on Izuku all over again.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Due to being bonded with Venom, Bakugou possesses a weakness to intense heat and flame as well as high-intensity sound. However, the Required Secondary Powers from his own Quirk dulls this weakness, letting him resist sounds that aren't too high-pitched and shrug off fire in short bursts. But Endeavor proves to be his Man of Kryptonite, as Venom can't even get close to him without howling in pain.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He has all the powers of Venom, making him even faster, stronger, and tougher than Spider-Man. Combine this with the explosive propulsion and firepower of his Quirk, and you've got a hard-hitting brawler who can take as well as he can give.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Downplayed. Bakugou's ability to produce heat and sound with this explosions allows him to paralyze symbiotes with point-blank attacks. However, this is rarely enough to finish the fight alone, and he has to deal with the Carnage-enhanced Quirks of his opponents in order to get in range.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Has rows and rows of teeth while fully fused with Venom.
  • Morphic Resonance: His version of the Venom costume keeps his spiky hair visible and bears the same gauntlets, pads, and grenades as the Hero costume he wanted to have.
  • Never My Fault: One of his defining traits is his inability to blame himself for any of his problems. He constantly blames Izuku and everyone else for losing his chance at getting into U.A., failing to save people as Venom, or losing his temper in self-destructive ways. He even bonded with Venom just to beat on Izuku again after Carnage is dealt with.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • Despite his rowdiness and Jerkass behavior, he doesn't want to see innocents hurt and is horrified when he finds the apartment complex full of people slaughtered by Moonfish. He also shields a teenage girl and her little brother from Moonfish without a second thought and continues to fight the symbiotes even though it's earning him nothing but bad press.
    • While he tells Venom to hurry up and get over Eddie so they can focus, he also respects how much Eddie meant to Venom despite not knowing him. Instead of starting an argument with Venom, Bakugou keeps his tone even and gently gets his point across. He also says nothing while letting Venom mourn.
  • Power Incontinence: Even after possessing Super Strength for several months, Bakugou still loses control of it when he's pissed, punching through a store window and the TV behind it and fragmenting a sidewalk while throwing one of his tantrums.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's the impatient and irritable red to Venom's more task oriented and patient blue. When Bakugou rushes into combat, Venom tells him not to give himself away and pulls him out of danger. The dynamic is flipped when the two have someone at their mercy, as Venom giddily advocates murder while Bakugou coolly decides to leave judgment to the cops.
  • Super Senses: Venom cranks up Bakugou's senses, including his sense of smell. It isn't always helpful, as it makes revolting scents like rotting corpses and blood even more pungent.
  • Super Speed: Venom greatly increases the strength of Bakugou's muscles, letting him run at superhuman speeds that leave the cops and Heroes pursuing him in the dust.
  • Super Strength: Even without being fully transformed, Venom gives Bakugou enough strength to crack a sidewalk with a single stomp. When fully released, the two of them can pick up and throw cars as well as leave craters from running and jumping around.
  • Super Toughness: He's tough enough to shrug off crashing through buildings, a car exploding in his face, and falling from heights that leave a crater where he lands.
  • Talking to Themself: One of the major downsides of bonding to Venom is how crazy he looks when he mutters to himself and jerks his head around while talking to Venom.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: He mutters about how much it's going to suck when he detonates a car in his own face to take out Moonfish.
    Bakugou: [as Venom] We’ll hate this! But if it means ending this, we will grin and bear it!
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Despite his tendency to beat his opponents so badly that they enter comas, he never actually kills them despite wanting to and Venom's openness to the idea.
  • Vigilante Man: He's officially a vigilante who is constantly going against the law to stop Carnage and his followers. More of then than not, he's being hounded by the police and Heroes as much as the actual murderers are.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Bakugou and Venom are constantly throwing insults at each other. Venom even mocks Bakugou during his How We Got Here narration and Bakugou constantly refers to Venom as "goop" to his annoyance. Despite this, the two of them look care for one another and pull each other out of danger.
  • Voice of the Legion: Has this while fused with Venom, as shown by the bolded, italicized text his dialogue is written in while speaking as Venom.

    The Venom Symbiote 

The Venom Symbiote

Debut: Sidestory: Let the Devil In

An alien symbiote from the planet Klyntar and long-time partner of Eddie Brock. After Eddie is killed when they crash land onto Bakugou's Earth, Venom bonds to the teenager out of desperation to escape the burning wreckage. After discovering that they were surprisingly compatible, the the two of them made a deal: If Bakugou would help Venom find Carnage and take revenge on him for killing Eddie, Venom would help Bakugou make Deku pay for ruining his life.


  • Alternate Self: He comes from a universe similar to that of Venom (2018), where there are no superheroes and no Spider-Man despite granting Bakugou the same spider-like abilities.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: He's spider-based, letting Bakugou climb up walls, giving him the proportional physical abilities of a spider, and produce tentacles as "webbing".
  • Ax-Crazy: Once they have someone at their mercy, Venom giddily advocates for murdering Moonfish, but Bakugou shuts him down. Venom dejectedly calls him a pussy for this, but Bakugou doesn't care.
  • Bio-Armor: Acts as this for Bakugou, giving him almost all of Spider-Man's powers, sprouting Combat Tentacles, and protecting him from attacks.
  • Blank White Eyes: Has these in the shape of Spider-Man's teardrop lenses, but they've become frayed after bonding to Bakugou.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: He grants his hosts almost all of Spider-Man's abilities along with a potent Healing Factor.
  • A Darker Me: Downplayed. Venom has a bad habit of encouraging Bakugou's worst impulses, like wanting to murder Moonfish, beat the crap out of Izuku, or his feelings of self-entitlement. But all of these traits are already there for him and there's no indication that Venom is subtly forcing him to do any of these.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He often snarks at human antics as well as Bakugou's own failings.
    Bakugou: I could do whatever I want, because I deserved it.
    Venom: Yeah, and look how that turned out.
    Bakugou: Shut up!
  • Eating the Enemy: He and Bakugou finish off Carnage's offshoots by extracting them from their hosts' spine and devouring them alive.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Bakugou refers to Venom as "goop", much to Venom's annoyance.
  • Fight Off the Kryptonite: Thanks to being bonded to the explosion-happy Bakugou, Venom's weaknesses to heat and sound have been dulled, protecting him from short bursts of flame and lower frequencies of intense sound. Unfortunately, the incredibly powerful Flame Hero Endeavor is still enough to leave them reeling in pain.
  • Heartbroken Badass: He's still reeling from Eddie's death and negatively compares Bakugou to him.
    Venom: It’s just… it’s hard to believe that half of your life is just gone. It wasn’t supposed to go this way… I wasn’t supposed to be here and Eddie shouldn’t be buried so far from home.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He threatens to eat Bakugou's old lackeys to get them to piss themselves and leave them alone.
  • Kill It with Fire: His biggest weakness is fire, screaming in pain after Endeavor attacks him. Luckily for him, bonding with Bakugou improved his resistance to it, letting them withstand short bursts of flame.
  • The Nose Knows: Venom has a super-strong sense of smell that he uses to track Carnage and his offshoots.
  • Only Friend: Ever since his fall from grace, Venom has been Bakugou's only confidant. Their relationship is amicable despite their constant bickering and there's an obvious mutual respect between them.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's the more task oriented and patient blue to Bakugou's impatient and irritable red. When Bakugou rushes into combat, Venom tells him not to give himself away and pulls him out of danger. The dynamic is flipped when the two have someone at their mercy, as Venom giddily advocates murder while Bakugou coolly decides to leave judgment to the cops.
  • Reformed, but Not Tamed: He's solidly on the side of good in regards to keeping innocents unharmed and punishing evil. But Venom doesn't mind threatening to eat people to get them to quit bothering him and advocates the murder option when they have their opponent at their mercy.
  • Royal "We": He prefers it when he and Bakugou are referred to as a single unit with "We", pestering him to refer to themselves as such during Bakugou's recap. When the two are completely fused, they switch to "we" in all their dialogue and the narration reflects this.
  • Sweet Tooth: He constantly requests chocolate to keep himself sated between hunts.
  • Symbiotic Possession: He has this relationship with Bakugou. The two take care of each other and promise to fulfill each end of their bargain. Despite their bickering, they work well together and constantly cover each other's weaknesses in combat.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Bakugou and Venom are constantly throwing insults at each other. Venom even mocks Bakugou during his How We Got Here narration and Bakugou constantly refers to Venom as "goop" to his annoyance. Despite this, the two of them look care for one another and cover each other's weaknesses.

    Cletus Kasady - Carnage 

Cletus Kassidy - Carnage

Debut: Sidestory: Let the Devil In

A deranged serial killer from the same world as the Venom Symbiote. He's bonded to Venom's spawn, Carnage, becoming Eddie's and Venom's worst enemy in the process. He's currently gathering followers who share his twisted view in order to turn the Earth he arrived onto a paradise for Knull.


  • Antagonistic Offspring: Carnage is Venom's spawn, becoming even more bloodthirsty than Venom himself.
  • Arch-Enemy: Of Eddie and Venom and now Bakugou.
  • Ax-Crazy: He claims to have learned nine hundred ways to slice someone open even before he obtained the Carnage symbiote.
  • Foil: To Bakugou. Both of them are highly intelligent and violent symbiote users. But while Bakugou fights to save people and is given bad press for his Destructive Savior tendencies, Cletus is adored by his followers and wants to expand his Religion of Evil to turn Earth into a living hell. Bakugou is also a case of Sir Swears-a-Lot, while Cletus is well-spoken and eloquent.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: He enjoys killing people as much as he loves getting stabbed by Toga.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: You'd have to be insane to not run from someone who's named after wanton slaughter.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: When fully transformed into Carnage, he's an Ax-Crazy Serial Killer covered in black and red.
  • Serial Killer: Cletus loves killing people and all the different ways he can do it.
