Venom: Let There Be Carnage‘s post-credit scene introduced the titular symbiote to the MCU. This will not only set up his showdown with Spider-Man but will also open another door for an even more powerful symbiote to join the league. The host of Venom, Eddie Brock once donned a symbiote that was supposed to be the opposite of his counterpart. It was called Anti-Venom.

Anti-Venom made its debut in Amazing Spider-Man #569. In the storyline, Eddie Brock was not a Venom host anymore and was perhaps dying of cancer. Brock began to serve the FEAST Center, a homeless shelter, managed and ran by Martin Li, AKA Mr. Negative, the fellow Spider-Man villain. Mr. Negative aided Brock by curing his cancer, but, in the process, he accidentally mixed the Venom symbiote with Eddie’s WBCs.

When Mac Gargan, the current Venom host, crashed the FEAST Center, the symbiote wished to reunite with Eddie. As a result, the dormant symbiote WBCs got activated and created an all-white Anti-Venom symbiote. While this helped to prevent the Venom symbiote from getting diluted with Brock, it also helped to introduce the most powerful symbiote in the comics.

Unlike other variants, the Anti-Venom symbiote does not have a mind of its own. That is why it runs entirely on the carrier’s command. But apparently, the Anti-Venom symbiote can cure a body’s impurities and immune to fire as well as sonic attacks.

With that said, Eddie seems to be embracing the Anti-Venom as it could help to cure others and allow him to become a hero once again. But unfortunately, Brock lost the symbiote while producing a cure for the Spider-Man in the Spider-Island event.

The introduction of this new symbiote in the Marvel Cinematic Universe could explore more exciting stories like King in Black and Spider-Island where the Anti-Venom will play a major role. To see Eddie Brock and Venom make their way into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Venom: Let There Be Carnage is now running in theaters.
