Every now and then I come across a Twitter thread that I love and I want to start highlighting some of them and the creators. This first highlight is from my good friend @TheLastGorgon!
I hope you enjoy the read as much as I did! (Spoilers Ahead if you haven't finished Venom)
Since some of y'all don't understand this scene and are either mad "Venom was Worthy" (not even close to what happened) or use "its just broken right now" (oversimplification), Uncle Gorgon is gonna break this down. I want y'all to get how important this scene was.
So let's address the first. That's not Venom. That's Eddie Brock. Bearing Captain Universe, aka the God of Lifht, aka the enigma force. He chose to look like Venom when given the option. Venom can't be there while he holds onto that force. This him receiving it and venom leaving
2nd, it's important to note that Eddie has chosen a Venom form twice now. Once here, and once when given the dream stone back in "War of the Realms". Their bond is unreal, and it's always his form. This is him choosing it
The next we see Eddie is in King in Black which literally opens up with Eddie narrating in the beginning. It's his story.
He literally says in this narration that Knull has fought venom. But he's never fought Eddie Brock, the Comeback King. He's literally telling you, the reader, that it's him. Not Venom. Him. Right from the start
Now, onto the "Worthy" thing. Since Venom isn't here, and it's just Eddie, the question is Eddie worthy? Let's touch that in a second. Forgetting worthy, forgetting Mjölnir's enchantment for a moment, you need to understand the Enigma Force role in this. The Enigma Force is a symbiotic force now through the addition to its lore. Not only that, it's Knull's opposite. The God of Light. Which currently in this form, Eddie is the God of Light. Now. Thor and Surfer are both referred to as children and warriors of the light. They have been for a long time. Knull came about to earth way back in the day and Thor fought him and hurt him. With his "light" aka the lightning. The surfer was reborn through "the light".
Now, would it now make sense that the God of Light can summon weapons made from the very energy it created? It would. That's how he summoned Mjölnir and Norrin's board to form All Light. (Thank you @Te_AgentVenom for the Canon contribution to the name). By being the God of Light.
Now. Back to the question.
Is Eddie Brock worthy?
If you've read this story, it would be hard to say no. Eddie has saved the universe and world multiple times before this. He even ran in, no symbiote, willing to die to try to save everyone in Absolute Carnage.
