Venom Gifts That Let Anyone Bring a Symbiote Home

Venom gift guide header

Ever since the alien symbiote costume bonded with disgraced journalist Eddie Brock, Venom has gone on to become one of the most popular antiheroes in the Marvel Universe, whether he's helping or hunting Spider-Man. The character has skirted the line between being a hero and a villain while starring in his own bestselling comic book title and numerous appearances in animated television series, video games and live-action films, where he's been portrayed by Topher Grace and Tom Hardy.

With this summer's Marvel comic book crossover Absolute Carnage poised to put Venom back at the forefront of the Marvel Universe, here is some of the best Venom-inspired merchandise for fans to show their love for the symbiote-powered antihero.
