- There is no more Eddie Brock. There is no more symbiote. From now on, we are poison to Spider-Man. We are VENOM!!!
When Eddie was a child, his father worked at Oscorp, and was partners with a man named Richard Parker. Richard's son, Peter, and Eddie became very good friends. Eddie was a year older than Peter, so he liked pretending he was Peter's older brother, which eventually led to the two of them constantly calling each other "Bro", but it was all too good to last.
Transfer to California
Eventually, Eddie's father was transferred to the recently opened Oscorp facility in California, so they were forced to move away from the Parkers, but their fathers stored their last project together away, hopefully for good, but Eddie remembered it, barely. After moving to California, Eddie's life became increasingly worse. He was bullied constantly, and even the other kids in his karate classes made fun of him, even though he was the best in the class.
When Eddie was 16, he decided he'd finally had enough. He purchased himself a gun and decided to bring it to school to end his torture, and give the bullies a taste of their own medicine. After bringing it to school, he didn't bother hiding it, but he threatened to shoot the people in the office if they called the police, so he moved on, but as any person would, they called the police. Eddie only managed to shoot and wound one kid, who was only trying to save Eddie's true target, before the police arrived and arrested him.
