Some people are going nuts over Venom #25 and the new character Virus. We all know Donny Cates is the master of pulling old characters in and making them hot. So let’s take a look back at Virus.
This is an extremely cheap book with a ton of copies on eBay for under $5, most under $2, Peter Parker Spider-Man #49 features the first appearance of a character named Virus. Looking at the cover you can see the inky black, very symbiote looking wave coming towards Spider-man. Insider we see the introduction of the new character that only appears in this one issue, so no death.
Again, very symbiote looking. Now the deal is he is a human mutated by a nano-virus. With the cover showing a very War Machine like character being called Virus, wondering if the nano-virus joins with the suit and the inky black mask on the Greg Horn cover is him beneath. Again, Peter Parker Spider-Man #49 could be a good cheap pickup.
