A Marvel story pushed Venom to the breaking point. But how did the symbiote become an almighty Marvel god in the last stand of his climax?
Venom: The End # 1 (by Adam Warren, Jeffrey “Chamba” Cruz, Guru e-FX, and VC’s Clayton Cowles) is a unique one-shot in a series of side stories that tell of the potential future of Marvel characters in their final moments. Unlike other stories under the “The End” umbrella, Venom’s finale may be the most grandiose and mind-numbing to date.
But in its massive scale, there is also a tale of a lone alien who dares to go against his nature to be a cosmically driven hero. As a result of his choices, the Venom symbiote is, perhaps surprisingly, named the most powerful creature in the Marvel universe.
Venom’s cosmic forces at the end of the Marvel universe, explained
The story follows the Venom symbiote to war with Superhuman Artificial Intelligence (ASI) to preserve humanity. But in its trillions of years of struggle, Venom suffered countless losses that only served to motivate its goals and do its best to preserve humanity. Venoms can not hold up attitude, however, was not the only thing that made it as powerful as other space-threatening threats.
In his years of being a mortal protector, Venom learned that it is better to preserve human life than to sacrifice it. But instead of gaining new strength to combat the ASI threat, Venom instead reinforced its own life by using its simplest abilities. A symbiot can remember each host and copy its powers thanks to its internal codex. Because of this skill, Venom’s plan involved recreating duplicates of itself thanks to the powers of Multiple Man. In doing so, Venom created even more poisonous mutants, giving him an antibody cannon capable of destroying planets.
But to combat ASI, it took things a step further, traveling through time with powers gained by Quicksilver and reinforcing them with the powers of another mutant named Elixir. In doing so, it attached itself to countless powerful beings and as many living beings as it could. With an overloaded codex, Venom used its cosmic knowledge to tear itself apart and create a pocket universe where life could thrive again.
How Venom became king of all life in the Marvel universe
In the main universe of Marvel 616, Venom and Eddie Brock have reached their own level of goodness that has not been seen before in symbiosis. After King in black event, causes Knull’s defeat to make Eddie and Venom the new king in black. By taking the title, Eddie gets the opportunity to connect with all the symbiotes in the Klyntar hive. This allows him to control other symbiotes and show him a different way of life that does not involve violence.
But when he is connected, his deadly body cannot handle the enormous load, forcing him to age faster. IN Married # 1 (by Al Ewing, Ram V, Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie, Alex Sinclair and Clayton Cowles), but Eddie seems to suffer physical death and separate his mind and body. However, his connection to the symbiots may have saved him, as his consciousness now inhabits a more humanoid symbiotic suit, making him even more powerful.
How cosmic poison compares to other symbiotic gods
Although Cosmic Venom is a powerful creature in its own universe, a few 616 characters have their own comparable abilities. For example, as the creator of the symbiots and All-Black the Necrosword, Knull has godlike strength. His abilities are so great that he could even kill Celestials and put him on par with a cosmically enhanced Venom. There is also Necro-Thor who appeared in Thor: The god of thunder # 11 by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribić. In the edition, he absorbed Necrosword, which made him infinitely more powerful in just a brief moment.
Compared to the most powerful creatures in the 616 universe, it’s clear that Cosmic Venom is a force to be reckoned with in the Marvel universe. But could his strength be seen in Marvel at all Cinematic Universe? So far, it seems unlikely as the MCU is still in its infancy compared to the comics. Plus, with Venom only recently entering the MCU, there are still more stories left to explore before he gets a power boost. Of course, the MCU is always full of surprises, which means anything can happen … albeit for a moment.
