At some point after the return of Apocalypse in the early twenty-first century, the Venom Symbiote became one of his Horsemen.

Along with the other Horsemen of Apocalypse, Venom attacked Colossus and his team of young X-Men when they ended up on Omega World, but only Colossus was subdued as the other mutants managed to escape with an ark containing six hundred mutant embryos in their possession.[3] Later, Venom and the Horsemen of Apocalypse - now with Colossus among them - tracked down the young X-Men, which led to their battle against them and a team of X-Men led by Storm.[4] The X-Men were ultimately defeated and the ark taken by the Horsemen to their master.[2]

Old Man Venom

When the X-Men invaded Apocalypse's Kingdom to try to retrieve the ark, Venom and the Horsemen of Apocalypse ambushed them. Venom was thrown by his fellow Horseman Colossus on Logan, and quickly took control over his body.[2] Jean Grey tried to help Logan overcome Venom, but the symbiote savagely attacked her.[1]

Venom was defeated when Iceman told Jean Grey to focus on its mind instead of Logan's, leading her to force the symbiote to release Logan. Venom was subsequently frozen by Iceman, and presumably perished along with the other inhabitants of Omega World when it collapsed.[5]
