@VenomousDragon: For me, I rather see Eddie being treated like a dog than not see him at all.
That would be horrible (for me) to have him still be Anti-Venom, and then never actually see him do anything thing. People complained about how the original Toxin just upped and disappeared and was never given any stories. I'd rather see Eddie go through hell and back than to have him disappear from comic books for 5 years (Toxin) or 10 years (Scream, Hybrid). I just rather see him in some capacity even as Toxin than to have him all happy, fine and dandy as Anti-Venom, but off-screen and never, ever used all the time.
