- Venom has come to purify this world. Venom now realizes that it is beyond redemption. You heroes are nothing but pests that stand in my way. If I cannot cleanse this world of heroism, I will destroy it.
Venom was a resident of the planet Symbioses, home to the wild and reckless species known as Symbiotes. Very few of them have brains, and the ones that do hardly ever use them. The Symbiotes are all about chaos. But Venom was different. He was born with an abnormally large brain, and he was capable of realizing the stupidity of his own race.
Venom's intelligence continued to evolve until he realized that the Symbiotes were unworthy of survival. He began going around, killing any living being he could come into contact with, and then absorbing them into him. After completing his genocide against the symbiote race, he decided he must destroy every other race incapable of survival, starting with the planet Mars, which was just outside the Asteroid Belt Symbioses was formerly stationed in.
Wiping Out the Martians
After arriving on Mars, the clueless Martians attempted to welcome Venom with open arms, but he instantly began slaughtering the little green men. Eventually, they ordered a nuclear assault on the beast. However, he was able to absorb all the attacks they could throw at him. Venom was impressed with their persistence, which delayed their extinction. Eventually, when only one Martian remained, they decided to mock Venom by killing themselves, but Venom was still pleased with absorbing their existence, and before he left, he laughed at their stupidity.
