Eddie Brock will become Toxin

You heard it. Or Toxin will have a child and Eddie will take that symbiote... you know how often Symbiotes bare offsprings... Carnage has already like 10 children.

Here's a picture of the symbiote that it looks like Eddie will take. I think it looks more like hybrid.

@kingjoeg: That does look like Hybrid. Where did you find that? I'm really curious as to what symbiote he will take. I just hate that he will turn into a villain again... I really started to like him as anti-Venom.

@SlimJ87D: I got it off the venomsite. I don't think Eddie will become a villain though. I think he will use a symbiote to help venom fight the savage six.

He just needs to become Venom again. To hell with this beating around the bush crap.

We have seen loads of Eddie as Venom in the past. It's Flash's turn now, his series is really good. Eddie doesn't have to be wearing the venom suit to be an interesting character.

Just to me, Eddie is Venom. And I am just getting tired of all these diff symbiotes that he keeps getting, when really he should just have Venom.
That, or just do something else with him. All these different symbiotes he keeps getting is starting to get old. It's like the only thing Marvel can do with Eddie is throw a random symbiote on him.

Didn't they say he was going to be the Van Helsing of symbiotes?

Will he be rocking a stylish hat like a boss?

If he becomes Toxin, then I will lose all faith in Remender as a writer. Eddie's great, as Venom or Anti-Venom, he's just not Toxin. They just don't know what to do with Eddie now that he's not Anti-Venom.

@greenlucario: idk, eddie is just a crazy guy who goes crazier with a symbiote, give it a chance

He should never have stopped being Anti-Venom, sadly. That's why this weird indecision has arisen.

I can't understand why did they have to get rid of the Anti-Venom symbiote, they could have left just a little so it could regenerate later. I suppose they had other plans for Eddie but it doesn't seem logical, they said that he would become some sort of symbiote hunter and now he will have another symbiote?

I think that it's just because Eddie's only purpose was to purge the world of symbiotes but seeing the success of the new Venom and Carnage, Marvel couldn't permit it so they had to make his character relevant again.

Agreed. Although, I do love Eddie.

Since Eddie had been Toxin, I just don't like it. Have you ever had that feeling were two things just don't match? Well, I'm having it right now. I think that Anti-Venom is still there somewhere, maybe melded with his genetics or remnants that lie inside him. As for Toxin, he deserves justice. Pat is gone now, Toxin should bond with a cool character that it makes sense with. Eddie is not "Toxin material"; he is Anti-Venom always. Personally, I think the Venom Symbiote make the host by the way, but the host also needs relevance. Flash is "Venom material".

and what hapened with anti venom

@PenanceVenom: Anti-vemon was destroyed. Eddie willingly sacrificed it to create a cure for everyone afflicted with the disease that gave people copies of Spiderman's powers in the Spider Island story arc.
