Eddie Brock was once a simple man working at the Daily Bugle. He had a constant hatred of his rival, Peter Parker, whose Spider-Man pics always got front page.
While trapped on a alien planet during Secret Wars, Spider-Man discovered strange black mass which transformed into a new black Spider-Man uniform. He later returned to Earth in his new costume, only to discover that the suit was an Alien Symbiote trying to permanent bond with him. Using the loud sonic vibrations of a church bell, he managed to escape it, leaving it in the church.
Eddie Brock was diagnosed with cancer. He went to a church to pray. Inside, he was discovered by the suit which, sensing Brock's hatred for Parker, bonded with him. Their mutual hatred for Spider-Man made them stalk the wall crawler and the two spidermen battle several times. However, Spider-Man and Venom, although usually enemies, have worked together on rare occasions, Venom does not see itself as evil, but as a victim of Spider-Man, and will often aid people it also sees as innocent victims, often with a lethal result for the attacker, much like a Spider-Man version of the Punisher.
