Venom is a major antagonist in Marvel Comics, most commonly serving as an enemy for Spider-Man. The name has belonged to several different hosts over the years, which means that Venom is indeed the identity of this particular alien Symbiote. The Symbiote named itself Venom, as it considered itself a venom for Spider-Man.
The symbiote that later called itself Venom was the 998th generation of feral Klyntar, goo-like parasitic organism from outer space. This Klyntar were later imprisoned by its own kind due to displaying unusual dreams to protect its hosts instead of dominating them like tools.
Later on, Deadpool stumbled upon the prison complex where the Klyntar was contained. He inadvertently released it before the symbiote bonded with him. However, Deadpool felt the villainous nature and decided it was too dark and violent even for him. He rejected the symbiote, but it was soon found by Spider-Man, whose costume was damaged due to the war at Battlewar, and the symbiote bonded to him as a replacement costume.

NO REAL WORLD EXAMPLES - in order to keep our wiki as neutral as possible we will no longer be allowing the creation of "Real World" articles, unlike fiction the real-world is rarely black and white in terms of morality and one man's "villain" can be another man's "hero" (no matter how wicked they may appear). As such we have decided to stop the practice of adding real-world articles to this wiki and are now catering exclusively to fiction, folklore and theological figures.
NO FAN-FICTION - We do not allow fan-fiction on this wiki. Original content is to be kept on your user page. Only notable "fiction" (NOT OF ONES OWN MAKING) is allowed. If something is not found on KnowYourMeme.com or does not have videos on Youtube not made by the original author then it will be deleted on sight. You can create this kind of stuff on the Villains Fanon Wiki.
Plagiarism - Any article added to this wiki must be of your own making. Articles found to be taken from other sites without permission will be deleted without warning.
The Villains Wikia is a mirror version to the Heroes Wiki and is dedicated to creating a database of all known villains from all media - ranging from Saturday morning cartoon shows of old to books, video games and comics. Without the villain, there is rarely a plot, and this wikia aims to showcase the characters we all love to hate. All are welcome to join in and contribute here, so long as edits are constructive, discussions are positive, and both are relevant to the subject of villains.
