Venom Latched Onto Eddie Brock When He Was Investigating The Life Foundation
Several months after the discovery of the symbiotes, Eddie Brock losing his job, and the breakdown of his relationship with Anne Weying, the reporter is followed by Life Foundation scientist Dora Skirth (Jenny Slate), who sheds light on the grim nature of her boss’ human trials. When investigating the lab for himself one night, Brock causes one of the lifeforms (Venom) to escape and form a bond with the reporter, who happens to be a perfect match.
Not long after being exposed to the symbiote, Eddie Brock begins to have strange symptoms including superhuman strength and speed, increased body temperature, and an adverse reaction to high-pitched noises. Brock and Venom eventually form a symbiotic relationship (and the character’s iconic look) but it takes its toll on the host, who reaches out to Anne Weying’s new doctor boyfriend Dan Lewis (Reid Scott) for help.
