Agent of S.T.Y.L.E. – Who Else Is Venom?

Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

Last week, we looked at the original Venom villain Eddie Brock, and discussed how he was created. Now, we're going to take a look at the other folks who have worn the name and appearance of "Venom." Now, it's true that the living alien costume that turns its hosts into Venom has spawned other symbiotes such as Carnage, Mania and others. But they can get their own focus at some point. If we include them here, this piece is just going to be too long. Thanks for your patience and let's get on with the show!

That's what Sony is doing with the announcement that The Sinister Six are getting their own film, and so is Venom. The movies will all fit into the same universe, similar to Marvel's own film productions.

Watch This Awesome Short Film About Evil Action Figures Getting Their Comeuppance

This is like if Toy Story were really dark and really short, and also made you want to fight crime.

Vimeo user Paul Constantakis has released a new short film, Villainous, and it's a must-see. More a suggestive glimpse into the secret lives of our crime-fighting heroes -- and their dastardly foes -- than a narrative story, the two-and-a-half-minutes nonetheless hints just enough at the epic battle that we have missed to whet our appetite for more.

Medicines like morphine can be toxic if you overdo it, while poisons like cobra venom are being investigated in the hopes of uncovering their medicinal qualities. The latest case in point?
