Random FYI: there are new characters. They are somewhat parodies of everything we all loved and hated about the 90s.
"SYMBIOTE" - #0
Panel 1: Show a hospital room, with a bald man sitting in a bed upright reading a book. (Curtains on the windows are shut, door's closed - he's a total shut-in in here by the looks of it)
The man is ORWELL TAYLOR and he's reading "The Art Of War".
CAPTION(Orwell's inner thoughts): This book...
Panel 2: Show a row of well trained soldiers standing at attention. Among them is HUGH TAYLOR, the son of Orwell, who Eddie Brock (Venom at the time) killed to escape from the federal prison known as THE VAULT (see: Amazing Spider-man #315)
CAPTION(Orwell): It reminds me of my son.
CAPTION(Orwell): Of all his accomplishments in the military.
Panel 3: Show Orwell in the process of putting a suit of armor on(Think the Iron Man movie), it is SENTRY's armor. (Note: NO, it is not THAT Sentry, it's the character from the original Venom: Lethal Protector book! The green spiky armor guy.)
Panel 1: Show a panel of Venom suffocating Hugh, as Orwell imagines it (compared to the actual scene in the comics, it's more brutal and vicious)
CAPTION(Orwell): And how all of that was taken from him.
Panel 2: Show Orwell flying in the Sentry armor in a different flashback. The armor is fritzing, shooting off sparks - it looks like it's going to crash.
CAPTION(Orwell): And how my world fell apart.
Panel 3: Show Orwell in the Sentry armor crash into a building.
Panel 4: Close up of Orwell's face.
CAPTION(Orwell): My name is Orwell Taylor.
CAPTION(Orwell): I once was the leader of a team called THE JURY.
CAPTION(Orwell): Until they were lost. And I tried to replace them by myself.
Panel 1: Show THE JURY team being taken away into custody. Flashback again, obviously.
Panel 2: Show Orwell crawling out of the broken Sentry armor, bleeding from wreckage all around him in a pile of rubble. The rubble pile is in the street, he hit the pavement of a busy intersection. Cars are stopped all around him.
Panel 3: Our view is from Orwell's perspective, he's watching TV.
CAPTION(Orwell): And thus, I lost all movement from the waist down.
CAPTION(Orwell): At the very least... I take solace in the fact that Venom was captured by the government. Forced to be their slave.
Panel 4: The TV shows a news report of Anti-Venom fighting the Thunderbolts (See: Spider-man New Ways To Die).
TV REPORTER: The white Venom is former host to the Venom symbiote, EDDIE BROCK.
TV REPORTER: Suspect should be considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
Panel 1: Orwell's face. He's very, very shocked - and angry.
ORWELL: NO! NO NO NO! HE'S ALIVE?!
ORWELL: HE KILLED HIMSELF! I HEARD IT! HE JUMPED OUT OF A WINDOW-- DIDN'T HE?!
Panel 2: View of the room as Orwell grabs his head with his hands and screams.
ORWELL: Wait-- that was just a rumor-- THAT'S RIGHT, HE SURVIVED!
ORWELL: HE SURVIVED AND HE'S POWERED AGAIN!?
Panel 3: View of Orwell's face. He's crying a little bit, and he has a scary look in his eyes. He's so angry he probably can't see straight.
CAPTION(Orwell): This ... this will not stand.
Panel 4: Show Orwell grabbing a cell phone from his bedside.
CAPTION(Orwell): I have ONE thing left in my life.
Panel 1: Show a warehouse in a dirty, urban slum area.
CAPTION: “THE SAFEHOUSE”, HOME OF VLADIMIR ALEKSEEV
Panel 2: Show the inside of a large room. There are shelves all over the place, dirty, housing weapons of all kinds. Vladimir (black long hair, beard – wearing engineer clothes) is sitting on a work bench, loading up a large, not-realistic-but-still-awesome laser canon type of gun.
Panel 3: Show from behind the man, there are several men in black suits and sunglasses approaching him. Four to be exact. The middle most one is a blonde man, he is the tallest and the leader. The rest are black haired and pretty forgettable on appearance. The blonde guy looks like someone not to be messed with. He’ll be called “HEAD SUIT”
HEAD SUIT: Vladimir Alekseev. It’s time for your comeback tour.
Panel 4: Show the man smiling.
VLADIMIR: It is about time.
Panel 1: Show a sunny, suburban neighborhood – a cul-de-sac. There’s a young man (19 years), blonde, muscular(think Peter Parker in the 90s cartoon) - practicing with two big, professional looking swords (katatanas) and slicing up targets laid out outside.
CAPTION: SAN FRANCISCO – HOME OF DANNY DANGERFIELD
Panel 2: Show from behind Danny, the same group of men in suits. Along with Vladimir, walking toward him.
Panel 3: Vladimir smiles at the targets laid out around the place. They are effigies of several well known mutants (WOLVERINE, EMMA FROST, CYCLOPS – ETC)
Panel 4: The HEAD SUIT holds up a paper, a contract of some sort.
HEAD SUIT: Mr. Dangerfield, it’s time.
Panel 1: Close up of Danny smiling. He has a set of blades forming literally out of his arms, as if he merged them into his flesh.
DANNY: Awesome. ‘Bout time you suits showed up!
Panel 2: Show Danny grabbing a blade and pulling it.
Panel 3: Show the blade leave his flesh without a scratch. Vladimir is impressed.
DANNY: The perks of the X-gene, m’good man.

Panel 1: Show the bunch of them inside the helicopter.
Panel 2: Danny looks over at Vladimir.
DANNY: So, what do you do?
Panel 3: Vladimir smiles.
VLADIMIR: Weapons expert. Guns and certain blades.

Panel 4: Danny smiling.
DANNY: Spread the word ‘bout me, ok? Next time you get into a meeting or something, I mean.

Panel 2: Danny looking at the ground.

Panel 2: Show HEAD SUIT standing in front of everyone, Vlad and Danny are confused.
VLADIMIR: That is a pile of scrap.
DANNY: I can maybe make a few half decent weapons outta that, but I doubt it’s gonna help.
Panel 3: Head Suit takes a remote out of his suit.
HEAD SUIT: What may seem like a pile of scrap—
Panel 4: Head Suit’s finger on a button on the remote, he’s pressing it (it’s like a set of car keys, just a few buttons)
HEAD SUIT: Is actually one of the most deadly machines ever invented.
Panel 1: Show a set of circular, tiny eyes glowing a dark red.
Panel 2: Show the group stepping back, looking at the pile of mechanical scrap rise above them. It looks like a shadowy mass of gears and knives from what we can see. The eyes glow.
Panel 3: A set of sharp jaws open, a red glow emanating from the artificial throat.
MACHINE: UNIT 037 ONLINE.
Panel 4: Head Suit looks over at Vlad and Danny, gesturing toward the machine, like a greeting.
HEAD SUIT: Gentlemen, meet the DEATH MACHINE.

VLADIMIR: It’s truly magnificent.
Panel 2: Head Suit takes a pen from his suit.
Panel 3: Head Suit drops the pen to the ground. The pen starts to glow.

ORWELL: And any of his…. Kind, that may interfere.
Panel 4: Same view of Danny and Vlad.
DANNY: His kind?
Panel 1: Show TOXIN clinging to a wall, overlooking a bank. He’s looking down at the bank, concerned. His face is looking normal – without the mouth and teeth and such. The bank has a crowd of people outside.
ORWELL (Captioned text outside of last panel): Symbiotes. Aliens of an unknown origin.
Panel 2: Show inside the bank. Show THE SHOCKER holding a security guard hostage by his gauntlet. Outside, show Toxin swinging toward the window. The crowd outside ducking as he’s about to smash in.

Panel 3: Show Toxin smashing through the window, lunging toward Shocker.
ORWELL: Sonics and heat.
Panel 4: Show Danny, Vlad, and the rest in the room once again, gathered around the hologram.
