Notorious symbiote villain Venom has been a pain in Spidey’s behind since falling to Earth and merging with Eddie Brock. But after many exhausting encounters, Venom and Spider-man made a deal, Spidey would leave him alone if he swore not to commit any more crimes. Agreeing to the terms, Venom
moved from New York to San Francisco and took up a role helping, not harming. And it worked, too.
After some time, Spidey, not trusting Venom had really changed his ways, went to San Francisco, and to his surprise, Venom had really cleaned up his act. The duo even worked together to fight Agony, Phage, Riot, Scream, and Lasher, who are more symbiote incarnations.
