I'm sure it's been done before, but oh well. ;).

I say Eddie hands down.

Eddie, he's the first and the best, but Mac's a good second

Eddie has his flaws (mostly that his SOLE motivation is to kill Spider-Man--that's it), and was pretty much ruined as his solo series went on due to over exposure,  but in terms of who was the better character: Eddie.

Eddie defined the character. The Venom I love is the classic one who is seen as alternate spider man, not the current venom with stupid looking eyes and can grow 30 feet tall (that really bothers me...WHY COULDN'T EDDIE DO THAT?)

Gargan is okay only because he's making Venom relevant again, and it's cool to see him pretending to be Spider-Man blah blah but he really is a bitch. He got his tongue ripped out by Namor.

And it's really disrespecting Scorpion. I liked Scorpion. I thought he had a great concept and was one tough dude. Why ruin his rep with this crap?

They should hand over the mantle to someone else.


sorry...I just have very strong opinions about Venom.

I was thinking about putting him on there, but he really doesn't compete with Eddie or Mac.

I was joking, Brock is the best. Fortunato would've been cool is he wasn't such a loser. I love the idea of a mobster wearing the symbiote (because I love the mobster genre and Venom is awesome)

Fortunato had potential to be cool but he ended up being a sissy lol.

That's gotta be one of the most shameful deaths in the Marvel universe. Your symbiote abandons you in mid air because it thinks you are a wuss haha.

if fortunato had guts he would have been the most awesome venom, he wore the suit the coolest way
but he's a sissy so i have to say eddie
gargon had potential but he has become osborns bitch and that is that

also Anne Weying made one fucking awesome venom
they should make a story acre where spiderman fights she-venom and she-venom turns out to be Mary Jane
(just a thought)

i think in Eddie was a better Venom but i think Mac is more interesting. I like Mac more bc he is more crazy.

Even when he's Anti-Venom (who is really cool),he is so much cooler than Mac Gargan.
Mac just isn't Venom.

I wonder if anyone has compared the correlation of joke votes in polls to the correlation of Mac Gargan votes.  I bet they match exactly.  Eddie Brock for the win here guys.

Does Spider-Man count as a "Venom"? He did have the suit first and is the reason Venom has most of his powers

Eddie Brock will always be the better Venom because he was never defeated by Spider-Man, he ended up retiring and kept his undefeated record if you will, and as for Gargan, I'm glad that at least a classic villain took up the mantle of Venom. Eddie was the best, but I still like Garagn as Venom, he has shown an awesome fierceness of Venom, and he has continued to kick ass as Venom, so he's not all that bad.

Eddie of course. I got really pissed off when Scorpion got the Symbiote because he is (correction: was) one of my favourite characters.
