History

Venom, at some point in time, was kidnapped by Oscorp so that they may study the symbiote. During the Cosmic Brick crisis, Venom managed to escape and infect numerous Oscorp employees with the symbiote.

When Spider-Man, Hawkeye, and Black Widow followed the Green Goblin to Oscorp, they were sent through a trapdoor to the lower levels of the building, where Venom's breakout had occurred. Venom stalked the three heroes throughout the entire floor, until he cornered them in a room. Venom fought the three heroes, but was eventually defeated when they exploited his weaknesses to sonic vibrations and fire. His attack, however, gave the Green Goblin just enough time to escape.

Eddie Brock's face

When Galactus arrived to Earth, being controlled by Loki Venom was among the villains recruited by S.H.I.E.L.D. to help the heroes. Venom was assigned to 'Team Two' with Human Torch, Iron Man and Abomination. Through the use of Venom's webbing and Iron Man's Thrusters, Team Two were able to redirect the Hellicarriers' rotor blasts towards Galactus. Eventually, the earth was saved, with Team Three summoning a Black Hole and Team Four knocking Galactus and Loki into it. As per Fury and Doom's earlier agreement, the villains were given a thirty second head-start to escape, an idea that was unintentionally sabotaged by Hulk's inability to count to three, allowing the villains to escape.

"Overloaded" and under Loki's control

Loki later used his recently created "Norn Frost" on Venom, which "overloaded" his powers and placed him under Loki's control. Loki had Venom attack Spider-Man, and the two did battle in the Daily Bugle Building, before Spider-Man finally defeated him. Venom was taken into S.H.I.E.L.D. custody,[2] though he broke out with the other overloaded super-villains. Like the others, he was released from Loki's control and put back into custody after Loki's defeat.[3]
