DST: Anti-Venom vs Agent Venom by OrionSTARB0Y DST: Anti-Venom vs Agent Venom by OrionSTARB0Y
Finally got my hands on the Marvel Select Flash Thompson (Agent) Venom figure. Despite my few, petty gripes about the figure's articulation and functionality, props to ~BLACKPLAGUE1348 on a beautiful sculpt. Thought it appropriate to pit Agent Venom against Anti-Venom, considering Brock and Thompson's long-standing rivalry (and their tussle during Spider-Island). I don't do photography that often, but this pairing is undeniably photogenic.

Venom, Anti-Venom, Flash Thompson, and Eddie Brock are all properties of Marvel Entertainment, Inc. Both figures were sculpted by ~BLACKPLAGUE1348.

The Agent Venom figure is exclusive to the online official Marvel store and both the online and physical official Disney store. The Anti-Venom figure is now a rarity and out of stock on the official Diamond Select Toys online store, but you can find it from various online buyers for collector's prices. Both are from the Marvel Select toy line by Diamond Select Toys.

Go ahead, I'd be honored. My twitter handle is the same as my username here. The "o" in B0Y is a zero, just to clarify.

Personally I hated what has happened with Anti-Venom and think that he was the perfect, absolutely perfect, continuation for Eddie. What I had hoped would happen is that after kicking the snot out of eachother both Eddie and Flash realize that neither was really a badguy and move on with potential prospects of fighting again. But that would be far more far sighted than Marvel has been lately.

That was my expectation as well. Marvel just has no idea what to do with poor Eddie. Then again, they can't keep continuity straight to begin with.

Anti-Venom was the right direction for Brock post-Venom. But I don't consider Venom an all-out villain at all. He's only a villain towards Spidey and anyone unfortunate to get on his shit list. Otherwise, I categorize him as "vigilante" (or, more appropriately, "Lethal Protector").

It's bittersweet. I love Brock returning to his Lethal Protector ways with the most powerful symbiote, but I also strongly felt like Anti-Venom was the right direction for Brock in terms of character development. Being Toxin is basically taking a few steps back.

Don't encourage him.

Take it from someone who knows.

Though in all seriousness, both have something to add to the name "Venom", but you all gotta remember who wore the suit first.
