In the midst of the battle with the Stalkers, Venom learns a startling truth about his parasitic partner!
Venom and Vengeance got back to their friends right as the techno-organic virus was about to fully take over their bodies. To free them, the two “heroes” destroyed the ship severing the control of the machines. The group returned to the city beneath San Francisco where they were attacked by a further upgraded version of the last remaining Stalker. Calling himself The Stalker, he attacked. They were all teleported back to the jungle where they fought furiously. Right before Venom killed The Stalker, the machine mentioned knowing about a race of symbiotes. After the enemy was dead, Venom wondered if he had been telling the truth.
