Venom Infects the Marvel Universe This January

Get ready to see a lot of Venom in 2012.

Last month we reported on the six part weekly Venom story featuring X-23, Ghost Rider and Red Hulk. If that wasn't enough Venom action for you, Marvel has announced that January will begin our first look at a bunch of Venom variant covers.

Captain America #7 variant
February is going to be an action packed month for Venom, but before the insanity begins we’ve got your first look at January’s jaw dropping Venom Variants! Brought to you by some of the best artists in the industry, get ready for a unique look at your favorite Marvel heroes as they get infected by symbiotes!

Kicking off February with a bang, Venom makes unholy alliances with Red Hulk, Ghost Rider & X-23 to save Sin City, Las Vegas, from total chaos in Venom: Circle of Four. Then, just as Rick Remender and Gabriel Hardman take the reins as the new creative team of Secret Avengers, they draft Venom to the team’s lineup!

So what are you waiting for True Believer, go out and tell your retailers to make yours VENOM!

Check out the other variants.

Defenders #2 variant

It's just variant covers, it isn't an actual story arc. It's to promote the Venom book.

Without mentioning they sorta did the same thing during the 90s, in a mini-arc of the Clone Saga, Planet of the Symbiontes and the video game Spider-Man: Web of Shadows. Better be just the variant covers.

My thoughts exactly. Venom symbiots taking over every character, noooooo. Special covers just showing off some designs, sure, why not.

Posted by bigsoto74

I have a feeling some of the other symbiotes are going to bond with other heroes (as seen above )and mimic their powers and then they will be removed and then used to form a team of Symbiotes with other abilities than Spider-Man.

Ditto. So soon after the whole Spider Island event, would make it pretty lame. I'm all for them showing off this sort of art, though.

Marvel... What have you done?

Posted by danhimself

whenever I infect someone it never makes this much news

Posted by Or35ti

Sweet! Do they all have a storyline that has to do with Venom? If not, that's still f*cking awesome, I'd love a variant like that.

Posted by Thunderscream

didn't they already do this with Carnage?

venom moon knight kicks A$$!!

Yes, but remember this is Marvel we're talking about. Overkill is part of the company's approach. Remember Marvel Zombies? 8 )

Venom was already overexposed once in the 90s. So really, Deadpool was the new Venom. =P

Edited by Hazlenaut

symbiote invasion lets hope they got it to work this time. I hope they still have the happy gun ready. We really need to check on wolverine healing factor again I thought he can resist the symbiote. It hurts him allot though. than again he did went though hell literally so the symbiote has a lot to work with.

Posted by pspin

Is Venom worth it?

Posted by bunkerbuster05

This is something I've wanted Marvel to do for a long time, glad it's not a huge event! Seeing all the Marvel universe as symbiotes is awesome.

Posted by WWAJfan
