Symbiote questions

#1 Posted by Host (4 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm making a fan comic and the main character has a symbiote. I greatly appreciate it you could answer some questions. I've looked here and wiki and I couldn't find anything.

Questions:

  1. Can multiple symbiotes bond with one host? (Yet still remain two symbiotes)

  2. I know symbiotes can change the host's appearance. But can they change it completely? For example: Brock changing to look like the Hulk or Marvel Girl.

  3. When and how do symbiotes create spouses? Do they control it or is it random?

That’s all for now, thanks again if you could help.

Yes, Multiple Symbiotes can bond with someone and still remain two, For proof look at the Marvel Character "Hybrid".

No, They can't change someone's Human Appearence.

Symbiotes don't have Spouse's. They're Cells or Amobea's, They split in half and that is how they Reproduce.

Thanks, but is it Random when they split?"

I'm not sure. But your welcome. I'm a huge Venom fan.

Actually the only times this has been seen was in those horrible Venom limited series (in one such LS, Eddie is able to use the symbiote to alter his appearance to that of an African-American detective) If you want to go by the b.s. established during Venom's "dark period", then yes, the symbiote can make Eddie physically look like other people. But no, the symbiote was never designed (by Marvel writers) to do that. It can mimic clothes, skin tissue, and blend into its surronding.

In the world of TopCow Comics, The Witchblade and the Darkness bonded with Ian Notthingham, in a symbiote like effect. The Witchblade is technically a symbiote that bonds with one human host. It has been recently been shown that it can create other witchblade or split itself to two host.

The witchblade doesnt seem to alter the appearance of its host unlike the Darkness or the Angelus that changes the appearance of its host.

I know the reply's a little late but still... Not sure if when a symbiote splits if its random or not, but from what seems to have happened in the past, the offspring bears some resemblance to the 'father'. The Venom symbiote created Carnage, which shares his black colour in the chaotic tendrils that envelope him (the red parts influenced from its time bonded with Spider-Man?). They share similiar but enhanced powers (carnage's symbiote tendrils can remain solid briefly when detached from his body, so he can create projectile weapons where as Venom's have to stay attached). Toxin has a combination of both Venom and Carnage's colours (his 'father' and 'grandfather') being half reddy-orange and part blackish green. His appearance changes depending on his aggressiveness from looking almost like spider-man to growing huge like venom and gaining taons similiar to carnage. If Anti-Venom is anything to go by, and he is the spawn of one of the other symbiotes, he clearly shares a link to Venom, being black and white.

well actually they can change the hosts body completely.

1. Yes look at Hybrid, bonded with four symbiotes and has all four in his head with him.

2. Yes, Toxin changed his human hosts appearence several times.

 

3. Symbiotes are asexual and reproduce on their own.

symbiotes are always changing stuff. Depends on the writer. As time goes on we find out more stuff about them and they just get weirder and weirder. But that is why we love them

why is the carnage stronger than venom? when eddie brock was stronger than Cletus Kasady who was just some random serial killer? then toxin was the strongest and its host was just...well sad

Venom: Along Came A Spider #1, I love that issue, but your right it was horrible.

@Wepopu:
Carnage took some of Venoms power when he gave birth and each generation of symbiotes gets stronger such as Toxin the son of Carnage who is stronger then the father

Could anyone describe Carnage's and Venom's healing factors?  How strong are their healing factors?
