Quote1 And then... just like that... I feel it. Above the pounding heart of Spider-Man below me. Putting his life on the line once again to protect the innocent. To protect my son. Through the endless demons clawing their way out of the shadows of my past. I can feel it rising in the air. Cutting through the screams of a carnage-born god. Sending ripples of electricity through my codex-laden spine... boiling. Just below the surface. Aching to get out. For the first time in a very long time... I feel it. Hope. They fall into me. Black rain. Burrowing and growing. The codices... writhing and connecting with my own. The voices of their former hosts screaming into my mind. Captain America's voice barking orders and war strategies. Wolverine's rage igniting my blood into ancient fire. I see through Hawkeye's diamond-scalpel eyes. The Thing's ungodly strength turning my muscles to stone. They all melt together inside of me. Many voices becoming one. The power... not like anything I have ever felt before... something... new. Something better. We are the fury of this red-drenched city. Clothed in the armor of an avenging legion. This ends with us. All of us. Because we're stronger when we're together. And together... we. Are. Venom. Quote2

Edward Brock (Earth-616) and Legion (Klyntar) (Earth-616) from Absolute Carnage Vol 1 5 001

Legion symbiote before being assimilated by the Venom symbiote.

Ostensibly in order to prevent Dark Carnage from unleashing Knull, the Maker constructed the S.C.I.T.H.E., a machine to harvest codices;[2] disinforming the heroes that his machine would destroy the codices out of a desire to study what would happen if multiple codices were amalgamated.[3][4] Once the machine was completed, it was used to harvest codices of the Venom, Carnage, Riot, Lasher, Phage, Agony, Tyrannosaurus, Mania, Sleeper, and other symbiotes from several former hosts - including Captain America, Hawkeye, Wolverine, and the Thing.[5]

When Dark Carnage ripped the Venom symbiote from the Hulk and assimilated it, Eddie Brock punched through the S.C.I.T.H.E.'s containment tank and bonded to the codices, which interfaced with his own codices and amalgamated into a powerful symbiote identical in appearance to Venom.[4] The Legion symbiote enabled Eddie to trade blows with Dark Carnage, ultimately manifesting a Necrosword and killing him. When the Venom symbiote rebonded to Eddie, the Legion symbiote was assimilated into it alongside the Grendel symbiote.[1]

The Legion symbiote possesses the combined memories and personalities of the hosts its codices were harvested from, initially disparate before merging into a single personality.[4] Following its assimilation, the Legion symbiote's personality was subsumed by the Venom symbiote's.[1]
