We are aware about the fact that superheroes like Superman could not be easily taken down. In order to deprive them of his powers, the villains had to bring in an alien material like kryptonite. Similarly, previously recalled as a villain, Venom has moved towards becoming an anti-hero in some aspects. Even due to its instant fandom, it has risen about the conventional characteristics of a villain. This leaves Eddie Brock and other symbiote hosts to move away from the usual traps. His personality now sees a hint of moral grayness with flaws being thrown in. A symbiote is usually seen to be thirsty for blood. However, in its defense, it can satisfy its urges by eating something sweet like chocolate. This surprising element is definitely a mood buster as well.
We know that the character was first introduced in the year 1980. At that moment its personality traits were supposed to be a dark and twisted villain. Before encountering the Venom, Eddie Brock was on the verge of committing a suicide. But after running into the Venom, he was blessed with the abilities of a super human. This gave him support in order to take down his rival, Spider-Man. Even though the Villain had some dark and twisted origins, the character certainly evolved to a greater dimension in the 90’s time line. As of now, it is seen light hearted and can be put next to Deadpool. In a famous comic called Sign of the Boss, Venom adds up the element of humor while taking the bad guys down. The writers certainly wanted to add a contrast to his characteristics of being Venom (poison). In previous features he was seen to munch upon people. But then new prospects were shown as to how one can counter Venom by a simple bar of chocolate which would relax him down.
Anyway, the symbiote was known to crave for a chemical called phenylethylamine which is naturally made in the body of human beings. This chemical is also produced in laboratories and is definitely seen in chocolates as well. The Venom used to become numb after eating the human flesh. Eventually, Eddie Brock too learnt about the deficiency of the chemical in the Venom and that it can be satisfied using chocolates. In one of the most iconic scenes, it showed Venom and his addiction towards chocolates and was featured in the comic Sign of the Boss. In that book, Venom was seen going to and fro through the skylines of the New York City. With him, was his favorite bag full of chocolates as he was singing ‘The Venom Song’, commonly called the Spider-Man song. Can you recall any other comic character and their unusual habits?
