I always thought the venom symbiote had been treated as a item far more than as a character than it should have been. It's clearly a thinking, emotional, and honestly damaged being and that seems to fall to the wayside of the hosts all the time. Been driving me crazy for a long time
I started reading guardians when venom joined, and while I enjoy the other characters and stories now, I joined because I knew this was where it was going.
Planet symbiote, bring it on.
