Eddie Brock was a war hero, who was kidnapped by the Riddler and driven insane.
As a soldierEdit
Eddie Brock was a loyal American soldier in the War in Libya. When he returned, he was kidnapped by the Riddler, who drove him insane. Brock then snapped Riddler's neck, but he somehow managed to survive. He made his way to New York, where he became a serial killer.
When Eddie was running from the cops, he hid in a Belltower. He found Spider-Man and Black Cat banging on the bell, and he noticed some kind of black sludge drooping down. Not knowing what it was, he wanted a better look. The "sludge" bonded with Eddie, turning him into Venom.
