Synopsis for "Savage Six: Prologue"
In an abandoned building, Flash sits beside an arsenal of weapons and calls Hank Pym to ask for his symbiote, knowing he is out of options. Later, he swings across the city, heading to his destination, unaware that he is being followed by Eddie Brock.
At Crime-Master's headquarters, two goons bring the Human Fly to him, who has agreed to meet with him and his team of villains, which includes Megatak, Death Adder, and Jack O'Lantern. Crime-Master then offers him protection from the authorities and the Kingpin in exchange for joining him for a special project. Meanwhile, just above them, Venom has his gun pointed directly at Crime-Master's head and resolves to kill him and the other villains present, who toast to the Human Fly for joining their team, the Savage Six. He considers calling the Avengers but fears Crime-Master would come back eventually.
Just as he is about to take the shot, he is hit by a sonic bullet, causing him to miss. He turns and sees that Eddie Brock was the one who shot him and continues to fire sonic bullets at him.
With things spinning out of control, Venom webs Brock down and fires at the villains, but Megatak produces a shield made of programming that protects them. Then, Crime-Master sends Human Fly after his attacker, unaware that it is Venom. Jack O'Lantern fights with Flash first, threatening to kill Betty, followed by the Human Fly, who throws Death Adder at him, infecting Venom with his poisonous claws. As he tries to focus and ignore the poison's disorienting effects, Jack O'Lantern cuts his web, sending him to the floor beside Crime-Master, who threatens to kill Betty first. Venom decides to retreat and protect his friends and family.
Afterwards, Jack O'Lantern discovers Eddie webbed up and unconscious. When he wakes up, he finds himself tied up in a room with Crime-Master and Jack O'Lantern standing over him. Crime-Master tells him that he's been looking to make a profit off of symbiotes, and now that he has the Toxin symbiote, all he needs is a host. Jack O'Lantern opens the canister containing the symbiote, and the two watch as it consumes Eddie, terrified that he is bonding with a symbiote again. Now that Eddie has become Toxin, he wants to kill Venom.
• Venom faces a gauntlet of doom as the Crime-Master unites Jack O’Lantern, The Human Fly, Toxin and more to destroy Flash Thompson!
• The Crime-Master’s plan is so diabolical, so vile, that it forces Eddie Brock to become a symbiote’s host once more – and takes the war to Flash Thompson’s Family, Betty Brant and even Peter Parker!
