Synopsis for "The Alien Costume, Part Three"

As Spider-Man is swinging through the city, he is ambushed by Rhino and Shocker, who defeat him and bury him under a pile of rubble. However, they are themselves defeated and webbed up by Venom, who fights Spider-Man himself, seeking revenge on the wallcrawler for Eddie Brock's ruined life and Peter Parker's rejection of the symbiote. Venom webs him up, unmasks him and threatens to reveal his identity to the public. However, Spider-Man escapes, but Venom persistently stalks him, threatening his Aunt May and girlfriend Mary Jane Watson.

Venom proves to be a relentless, unforgiving opponent, but Spider-Man manages to lure him to the launch site of the John Jameson space probe, where the noise of it blasting off forces the symbiote to separate from Brock. Spider-Man then webs the symbiote to the probe before it is launched, sending the symbiote back into outer space with the probe.

Notes

  • Adapted into comic book format in Spider-Man Adventures # 10.
  • The scene in which Venom swears vengeance on Spider-Man and lifts weights in his apartment comes from Amazing Spider-Man #298 and #300, respectively, though he only appears in shadow in the former. Eddie Brock confronting Peter Parker at his home and ingratiating himself with Aunt May comes from Amazing Spider-Man #317.
