Is Venom bulletproof to armor-piercing rounds?

#1 Edited by InnerVenom123 (29499 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, since in "New Ways to Live" Anti-Venom survives a point-blank encounter with an armor piercing buckshot from a shotgun..... is Venom immune to armor-piercing rounds also? My friend says no, but since Anti-Venom is supposedly just as strong as Venom... I'm not sure.

Yes Venom is impervious to armor piercing rounds

Anti Venom is way stronger then Venom so I doubt it

I have seen it before I just don't remember where but I know Anti venom is bullet proof

GOD DAMMIT YOU MADE ME SIGN UP, V. 
But anyways, no. An armor peircing round from a Barret 50. cal would make a hole about a foot long in your average money truck. 
So, it would rip a man in half. 
So, IT WOULD GO STRAIGHT THROUGH VENOM AND LEAVE A VERY NASTY HOLE

@TheRedHelm:  
No not at all whoever wares the symbiote is protected from everything except sonics and fire. Symbiotes just absorb the bullets and then shoot them back out at the target

i didnt think any military grade bullet could harm a symbiote

Apparently not..... which is weird...

Symbiotes don't get hurt by anything like that they are impervious, that's why the are cool. Because they can do mostly anything except fly LOL!

So wait, do you have proof of this, or are you just guessing? XD

At Super Man 
GOD DAMMIT, Are you saying if I launched a nuke at Venom the symbiote would Absorb that and spit it out?!
#14 Edited by Illuminarch (244 posts) - - Show Bio

 @SUPER-MAN 23:  Yes, and if a dart was fired out of a coil gun at 12 kilometers/sec, the symbiote would be impervious to that too. Also a 120mm shell from an Abrams tank. And also a 3,000 ton asteroid traveling at 500 km/sec. Nothing but fire and sonics.  *rolls eyes*  
 
However, Spider-Man's punches which pack less kinetic energy than a high powered rifle can knock him flat. 
 
Please stop perpetuating this kind of idiocy within comics and while we're at it, let's not tolerate it from the writers either.

no we arent talking about explosives, we are talking about bullets, if you hit a symbiote with a nuke it would die, its weakness is fire

To simplify that, we could say "Heat", but yeah.

@SUPER-MAN 23:
No, nukes produce a MASSIVE amount of heat, aka, fire, which symbiotes are weak against.

Exactly! Symbiotes are not effected by bullets or Rocket launchers

Rocket Launchers would probably work..... all that fire they release when they explode.....

You guys remind me of the Trekkies who claim that since Picard said a couple of primitive ships with woefully underpowered laser batteries can't harm the Enterprise it must mean that the Death Star's superlaser would be deflected by a shuttlecraft's shields.
 
This is also an excellent example of how silly it is to think you can come up with a legitimate answer in a "battles" thread, since all comics are inherently inconsistent in their portrayals of characters and their abilities, usually written by people that don't have even a basic understanding of physical concepts like force and work. This is why they show characters getting bloodied from punches but laughing at high mass and high velocity projectiles. It may look cool, but it defies any sort of attempt at rationalization.
 
By the way: bullets produce heat.

Dude.... relax. I was just asking a simple question. 
 
Don't bullets cool off after being shot? (That isn't rhetorical, I'm actually asking)

Let's see... Lethal Protector #1, he get's hit by some weird laser cutter thing and his back appears to be on fire but just keeps on fighting (might be some writing errors or artist errors, oh well)
Lethal Protector #2, get's shot a lot, symbiote catches bullets and shoots back
I'm not saying he's impervious to bullets, they should still hurt him even with the symbiote, since

Also, Anti-Venom does not have the weaknesses the original Venom had, such as, extreme levels of heat (if Venom was just weak against heat, he wouldn't be able to go outside), and sonics, so @InnerVenom123 said:

"  but since Anti-Venom is supposedly just as strong as Venom... I'm not sure.    "

Anti-Venom is technically stronger
 
Well, anyways, I am pretty sure Venom is bulletproof to armor-piercing rounds since, well, he has been hit by rockets and missiles, though he has been hurt by them, was still able to fight after getting hit.

Yes Venom is bulletproof and now superhuman

venom isn't human its a   symbiote 

#28 Edited by castleking (24119 posts) - - Show Bio
bullet heat up from the chain reaction inside the barrel plus the velocity and friction from traveling..... venoms suit and mass absorb the bullets like if it were shot into a vault of jello and then spits it out... the suit is also capable of actually grabbing the buck shot and bullet in mid flight and robbing it of its momentum enough to keep it from reaching the host.... 
 
 
also technically the sym should be injured or feel discomfort from the bullets heat.... not that it is shown in comics or even acknowledged..
 
i would think a tracer round should actually hurt the symbiote since it is extremely hot and has phosphorus in it.
 
the sym shouldnt really be capable of taking a single armor piercing round

The symbiote can harden to take bullets can't it. That's how I take it, if prepared he can deflect hand gun caliber bullets.

#30 Posted by castleking (24119 posts) - - Show Bio
yes, the sym can harden itself.... but i have mostly seen it use its malleability to absorb a bullets impact  rather then harden itself to it
#31 Posted by PrinceIMC (5421 posts) - - Show Bio
@castleking: True. Though I guess it has to harden when the bullets are being absorbed too. Be soft when the bullet enters then harden around the bullet to keep it from going further into its body.

i actually was thinking that too that it was a certain lvl malleability and then somewhat harden layer beneath the surface  to help take the rest of the impact...
 
but it still shouldnt be capable of taking a single armor piercing round... normal buckshot and a hand gun cool but not a armor piercing...
 
i seen the carnage symbiote simply penetrate a few centimeters into brick walls or metal wall never full penetration i have never seen it cleave through something as tough as  high grade steel.... it probably has happen though
