    Venom - the symbiote with a taste for... well, people. Not only does Venom have a human host in Eddie Brock, but he chomps down on a few as well. Is that ACTUALLY good for him? You see, I think that Venom is being HURT by the humans he needs to survive! How? Let me show you!

    This should be debunked because a symbiote chooses to go on something it could just leave Eddie but it stays with Eddie because it thinks it would be a good victim and side note he try’s to attack spidey because he thinks he’s a better victim

    "Why does the Symbiote eat people in the open and get into fights?"
    Because they are naturally violent? Not evil, but even on their home planet they we're meant to bond with other organisms to help them fight.

    In the begining of the movie yes he was a parasite cuz he was literally eating Eddie's organs venom is benefiting and eddie suffers but towards the end of the movie they bond emotionally where Venom even likes Anne (Eddie's love interest) and more importantly not eating Eddie's organs and is willing to compremise eatting something a little more normal tatertots and chocolate and letting Eddie make the rules instead of taking over Eddie cuz Venom learned from Eddie cuz it better for both there survivial. Making Venom and Eddie finially mutualist between one another where both benifit and everyone's happy well except the guys Venom ate but no judgement they probably diserved it lol

    If Toxoplasmosis Gondii causes scitzophritia why arent they treating people for it or even creating a Vacine for it so more people will be better protected from it?

    Also in the Venom movie, the symbiotes are dying cuz they cant adapt to the earths oxygen and atmosphere so they have to bond with humans to survive so if u think about it yes they are victims

    Parasites don’t kill the host, unless you never known a symbiote, or you play plague inc. and made a parasite that kills all of humanity.

    In the 4000-6000 Hertz range, Venom and Riot becomes unstable and starts to retract from Eddie to get away from the noise, and Eddie (and Carlton) suffers with them. This could be in a sense a sensory overload, which is very common in people with mental illness. Especially with loud or awful continuous noises.
    Eddie doesn’t really get any sleep. You could chalk it up to having literal militia level agents trying to detain and murder Eddie, or in Carlton’s case experimenting on him, but if we’re going with the idea that Venom can cause schizophrenia, it’s not uncommon for schizophrenics to stay awake for one reason or another. (Or even for mentally ill people to develop insomnia)
    Eddie is also suffering from major depression, and there’s actually a form of psychosis known as PTSD-Induced Psychosis. Sure, Eddie isn’t abused or facing life and death everyday but he loses everything in one day. It’s his fault of course, but that doesn’t change that he’s a rattled man. Could also explain why Venom and Eddie get along pretty quick. Eddie probably already had a few psychotic episodes over the course of the few months in the movie. (Same goes to Carlton. He was a sadistic man with a god complex. Of course he’d have some form of psychosis)
    The comedic scene of Eddie in the restaurant with Dan and Anne is pretty much a great example of a mental breakdown to the umpth degree, especially when you consider the mixture of confusion and aggressive behavior. Even the hunger makes sense to me because for a lot of people, when they breakdown they eat like pigs.
    Eddie also seems to have issues with alcohol. It’s not outright but it’s implied via him drinking at the bar after the scene of him and Anne breaking up. It could be possible that’s been his coping mechanism and it fucked up his mental state.
    In short
    Although I don’t think Venom is a villain or a parasite, I can see why one draws those conclusions and why you would correlate the cat parasite to Venom via the schizophrenia link. That said, I like this theory. But in a “I think this fun” way not “This is informative”. Thought I’d point out those things though :)

  • Black Dot

    Anyone that knows anything about Marvel already knows that the symbiotes aren't aggresive. They only enhance the emotions humans already have and the specific symbiote Venom took on a lot of its traits from aggresive humans its fused with previously.

  • Gercho-San Andrade
    Gercho-San Andrade 20 days ago

    The original venom is actually a little unstable because he has Peter's mind mixed within itself, and then when it attach to Eddie it adds to the mixture, specially because Eddie is also unstable. That's the mind of the symbiote, a mixture of Peter and Eddie.

    Venom is and will always be a simbiot, but you are saying that he is a parasite, it’s like you are saying that an apple is a pare! He is a simbiot that’s needs to feed on his host because he doesn’t have the nutrition to survive and support his host and he is putting the host in danger because he is in a new environment, it’s like you put a human in space! and what was the problem? 0G and solar radiation and the limited food amount! Venom needs to learn to survive in the new environment and the new nutrition and to the host!
    Venom is killing the host not because he is a parasite (he is a simbiot) he is trying to survive! What happened to your body when you eat nothing for 1 month? The brain is trying to survive!
    In the restaurant he went in the acuarium with lobsters and venom try to force feed the host and at his house he tried to eat food that was in the bind!
    So venom is a simbiot!!!
