Since there has been talk and news about the whole “Venom Island” thing that has been teased. I couldn’t help but think about good ole “Dreadface”…the symbiote that also happened to arrive upon a tropical island to battle it out with the Fantastic Four.
So ASM #347 was from 5/91 and FF#360 was 1/92.
What if this just happened to somehow be the same tropical island, and what if an element of the symbiote from the Dreadface encounter also remained…just waiting for a chance. It bonded with a quite a few different heroes and even a gorilla (who is likely still chilling on the island).
Even if it was a different island…Carnage is after all of the “Codexes” and this Gorilla has one (poor Gorilla). Everyone just assumed the island in question is the island from ASM.
Just something I was thinking about while going through my varied symbiote related comics. Lots of what ifs…but the symbiote from that story has been long forgotten. You just never know!!!
