Earlier this year, one of Peter Parker's closest allies, Miles Morales' Spider-Man, and most notorious foes, Eddie Brock's Venom, hit the big screen in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Venom, respectively.
Now, popular digital artist Bosslogic has reimainged Miles Morales as the host of the alien Venom symbiote through his totally unique approach in an homage to one of the most famous Spider-Man comic book covers of all time.
Miles Morales, who was created by Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli for Marvel’s Ultimate Universe is depicted on the Australian artist's Instagram with an inverted red and white’s costume with his sleeves giving off a tattered effect that brings to mind Venom’s psychotic offspring, Carnage.
The image bills itself as a remix to the cover of Amazing Spider-Man # 300, by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane, which was the first official appearance of Venom. The cover itself is a popular Marvel homage which has been referenced and reinterpreted by different Marvel characters throughout the years.
The cover also references Cullen Bunn and Iban Coello's storyline Venomverse, a 2017 Venom event where different incarnations of Venom united behind Eddie Brock to fight a new species called Poisons. Like the 2014 Spider-Verse storyline that inspired it, this story featured Venom hosts being hunted down through the multiverse.
The Venoms were victorious despite heavy casualties, and the story set up a possible sequel, so there's a decent chance that we could really see a Venomized version of Miles in future. Considering the positive reaction Into the Spider-Verse has generated so far, that could even happen on the big screen.
Directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey and Rodney Rothman, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse stars Shameik Moore, Brian Tyree Henry, Jake Johnson, Mahershala Ali, Hailee Steinfeld, Liev Schreiber, Luna Lauren Velez, Lily Tomlin, Nicolas Cage, John Mulaney and Kimiko Glenn. The film is in theaters now.
