Last year Cullen Bunn & Iban Coello teamed up the recently rebonded Eddie Brock Venom with Venom bonded characters around the multiverse in Venomverse to fight off an alien species known as the Poison who were out to consume & take over the hosts and symbiotes. This April, Bunn & Coello bring that storyline to a close.
Marvel Comics has announced through ComicBook.com, the five-part weekly crossover known as Venomized by Bunn and Coello which features the Poisons making it to the main Marvel Universe with one goal in mind: exposing the heroes of Earth to symbiotes then consume host & symbiote. The story also picks up after the upcoming X-Men: Blue and Venom crossover storyline Poison X, which follows the time-displaced X-Men and Venom facing off against the Poisons off-world.
An alternate reality Thanos, assimilated by the Poisons, will lead the Poisons assault on Earth alongside other alternate reality Poison consumed villains. These Venom focused stories come just as the symbiotic anti-hero is celebrating their 30th anniversary this year.
Check out the full solicitation for Venomized #1 below.

Put every superhuman in a Klyntar symbiote – and CONSUME THEM! But with VENOM and the X-MEN still missing after the events of “Poison X,” the planet, and its heroes, is defenseless!
