Venom’s largest comedian e book occasion but got here to an epic finale in King In Black #5, which pitted Eddie Brock towards the darkish god of the symbiotes, Knull, in a one-on-one battle. Eddie obtained the profit of getting back from the lifeless and inheriting a serious cosmic energy to oppose Knull – nevertheless it wasn’t sufficient. To take down the darkish deity, Venom wanted a strong weapon to wield, and to create it he had to “borrow” some energy from two of the largest cosmic heroes in the whole Marvel Universe.

Eddie Brock comes again from the lifeless by having his consciousness survive in the symbiote hive thoughts, the place he will get a brand new symbiote physique, as nicely. That new physique is rapidly merged with the “God of Light” (aka Captain Universe’s Uni-Power) that’s Knull’s cosmic reverse, which was ferried to Earth by the Silver Surfer.
To make the weapon he wants to kill Knull, God of Light Venom pulls off a surprising cosmic feat: he summons Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir – and likewise the sword that Silver Surfer usual out of his surfboard.

We even get an Avenger: Infinity War ode to Thor taking down Thanos, as Venom plunges the ax into Knull’s chest, and makes use of it to strip off the historical diety’s symbiote.
Ultimately Venom has to end off Knull by way of different means (flying him into the solar), and in the aftermath of the battle, a really involved Thor and Silver Surfer come worrying over their misplaced weapons. Luckily, the gentle ax breaks again down into its authentic two parts, and Thor and Silver Surfer get again the hammer and surfboard (respectively).
