Originally Broadcast on May 13, 1995
Eddie Brock is in his new apartment pumping
iron. He recounts his meetings with Spider-Man and how the wall-crawler always
persecuted him. After the flashbacks, he scoffs, looks at a picture of the
wall-crawler and says that this time, he's going to pay. Meanwhile, the Kingpin
is furious at Spider-Man for the whole Prometheum X mess, so he sends the
Shocker and Rhino out to finish Spidey (he encounters them during his patrol).
He loses and is about to be blasted away by Shocker, when an unknown creature
arrives and throughly beats up the two villains. Spidey gets up and see Eddie
Brock standing there. Eddie helps him stands up and calls him Peter Parker.
Spider-Man gets mad and Brock grabs him and morphs into Venom. He says,"We're
your old clothes kid. Your handme downs. What Peter Parker has rejected,
Eddie Brock has embraced!" Venom and Spider-Man fight continually until Venom
makes a threat saying that wherever Peter goes, he'll be following him. Brock
stays true to his word. He stalks Peter repeatedly, and in one instance,
he actually unmasks him in front of a large crowd, including JJ, but they
can't get a look at his face since he's so far up (there on top of a sky
scrapper). In another instance, Brock intrudes on Peter's date with Mary
Jane, and then after Peter takes her home, Brock follows him to Aunt May's
house. Peter realizes that there is only one way to get rid of Venom for
good. Later, Venom returns to his apartment and sees newspaper clippings
everywhere saying how Brock was fired. He gets really mad and Spidey stands
at the window and says, "Like how I redecorated the place?" Brock turns back
into Venom, screams, and chases after him. Spidey keeps moving, with Venom
right behind him. This continues for a few minutes until they arrive at the
shuttle base. Spidey webs his way over to the John Jameson probe (named after
John Jameson, obviously) with Venom only centimeters away. They are right
next to the probe and then all of a sudden, right when Venom catches Spidey
and is about to beat him up, the rockets begin to go off. Venom starts to
scream, since the loud noises are causing the symbiote to leave him. It finally
disbands from Brock, and Spidey webs it to the shuttle and watches it fly
off into space, never to be seen again (Or will it?.......).
The end of this episode is loosely based
on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN # 300.
