With Carnage on the loose and taking over Doverton, Colorado, the U.S. Armed Forces needed symbiotes to combat the threat.

After the Hybrid symbiote was de-fused, the Riot symbiote was assigned to Petty Officer Howard Ogden, who trained with it for months teaching it for specific tasks. Howard was part of the Mercury Team, a task force formed after the Venom debacle.[1]

He and the other human members of the Mercury Team were later killed by Carnage when the criminal by chance encountered their secret base located in Carrington Cottage during his murderous journey around the United States of America.[2]

Powers

Super human speed: Riot can move at incredible velocity, even faster than the human eye can follow.[citation needed]

Wall-Climbing Abilities: Riot/Odgen can also hang upside-down from walls and presumably climb vertical surfaces, much like all symbiotes.[citation needed]




Weapons

Pistols, knife

  • The Riot name for the symbiote wasn't officially used until Carnage, U.S.A. #2, with Howard Ogden as host.
    • Riot was originally the name of an action-figure (described as having many limbs and being as big as a house) but the name stuck in the symbiote mythos when the symbiote was passed on to Trevor Cole.
