The New Venom Symbiote is a Dead Man Walking (First Host #5 Spoilers)

The Venom: The First Host weekly series has given us a new symbiote, a spawn of Venom, with its own power base and abilities that can be transferred to a host, including manipulating the emotions and reason of those in its proximity through hormones, as well as invisibility and seeing what others cannot see.

And in the climactic battle with Tel-Kar, the original host for the Venom symbiote, the Sleeper Symbiote does something very nasty…

And lobotomised him from within. But it's not finished with him yet.

Welcome to the new Venom symbiote. And the all-but-dead Kree within him. A zombie symbiote. And with all sorts of possibilities for symbiotes exploiting coma victims in storylines to come…

You know, the Sleeper Symbiote doesn't have a name yet. Any suggestions?
