One is an alien symbiote, sworn enemy of Spider-Man. The other is a broken man, who made a deal with the devil for power to destroy Ghost Rider. But when they are attacked by the Stalkers, Venom and Vengeance are ready to show that these are two dark doppelgangers you should NEVER mess with!
Patrolling the city one day, Venom came across an armed man trying to rob or kill an old man. Venom stopped him and knocked him out even after the man claimed to be a government agent. To prove to his once-girlfriend Beck that he wasn’t a killer, Venom brought the two men back to the city under San Francisco.
When the two men came to, the story was explained. The old man had been part of a team called the Stalkers. One day their plane crashed and all his teammates were bonded with alien technology. He escaped but his teammates were hunting him down. The other man was a government agent and he believed the old man and he was trying to help him.
After the explanation, the old man went outside only to find the Stalkers waiting for him. Venom tried to protect him but he was overpowered. Just as the Stalkers were going to finish Venom, the other man stepped into battle. He transformed into the demonic warrior Vengeance. Together, Venom and Vengeance took down the Stalkers. Right after they were defeated they were developed in a bright green light and were transformed. When they stopped glowing they were more robotic and less human. They said they were a race that loved to hunt worthy prey, and the prey they wanted to hunt was Venom and Vengeance. They took hostages so the duo would participate, and disappeared while they planned. With the old man to help them, Venom and Vengeance turned the tables on their enemies and went to hunt them.
