At the heart of the character of Venom is a love story. One between the alien symbiote and Peter Parker. Joined on the Patchwork Planet, the symbiote did everything it could to be with, to stay with, to feed off Peter Parker. And when rejected by Parker, the symbiote was spurned and sought revenge with other "partners".
