Warning: The following post contains spoilers on Venom Annual #1
Marvel Comics’ Venom Annual #1 seems to have killed off a major Spider-Man villain.
A compilation of four short stories, Venom Annual #1 finds several classic Spider-Man foes at a safe haven for villains called The Bar With No Name. Among the antagonists are Shocker, Scorpion, Black Cat, and Boomerang, who argue over whether the titular villain is an uncountable creature or if he barely counts as a villain. Mac Gargan, a.k.a. Scorpion, is the most vocal member arguing that Venom is not scary and even claims that he has never actually eaten anyone.
Unfortunately for Scorpion, the Symbiote was right behind him during this moment and responds by wrapping its tongue around his head. While Scorpion’s fate is not explicitly revealed, the fact that the confrontation ends with the Symbiote opening its mouth with Scorpion in its clutches leaves little doubt about what transpired.
