The hunter becomes the hunted this fall as Venom and a group of venomized heroes face off against a new species called the Poisons who intend on consuming and feeding on symbiotes across the universe. If you've been out the loop with Venom as of late this handy infographic from Marvel should bring you up to speed somewhat.
My Take: As a huge Venom fan I am curious about this arc and with Brock back with the symbiote. I am curious as to how heroes in the story have symbiotes of their own and if some heroes will able to wield them as effectively as Brock wields his symbiote.
Check out some of the venomized hero designs you'll see when Venomverse kicks off.

This September, Cullen Bunn (X-Men Blue, Darth Maul) and Iban Coello (Venom, Deadpool & The Mercs for Money) craft the epic VENOMVERSE!

The Poisons have now enacted a plan to consume and feed across universes and Venom is first on the menu. “When a Poison attacks a symbiote, they form an unstoppable one-sided union that the Venom wants no part of,” said series writer Cullen Bunn. “And in order to find as many suitable symbiotes as possible, they are making their way across the multiverse in a quest for insatiable power.”
