Spider-Man & Fantastic Four VS Symbiote

Remember back in February 2009 when Spider-Man and the X-Men teamed up to fight Carnage? Well, it looks like the creative team that developed that limited series is back at it again, this time putting Spidey with the Fantastic Four. However, they won't be battling Carnage, the five-some will be fighting a host-less Venom symbiote!

According to an interview with the writer:

" Of course, these team-ups will not be to buy groceries or pick up garbage in Central Park, which means the five-some will be locking horns with baddies a-plenty. "Venom!" Gage excitedly proclaims. "Well, the Venom symbiote without a host. In issue #3, the Skrull temptress De'Lila will set the members of the new and old FF against each other-though mixing the rosters up a bit." "

So the article tells us that issue #1 will be Doc Doom and Nomar...issue #3 will be the Skrull...issue #4 will be an 'existing character'...so I guess we can plan on seeing the symbiote in issue #2?

I loved the way they brought back Carnage in last years limited series and I'm excited to see what they do with Venom. Spider-Man/Fantastic Four comes out this July. If you want to read the full article, click here to go to Marvel.com.


Comicbookresources.com posted an interview they did with the writer at C2E2; it looks like I was correct in assuming the symbiote would make an appearance in issue #2:

" Our second issue occurs during the John Byrne run, when She-Hulk had replaced the Thing on the FF. Dan Slott actually made an inspired suggestion surrounding the fact that it was the FF who helped Spider-Man get free of the symbiotic black costume that eventually became Venom - and Mario did such an amazing job drawing Carnage last time around, I jumped at it. So look for more symbiote shenanigans! "
