The Venom symbiote’s attached itself to a number of hosts since it first hitched a ride on Spider-Man back to Earth. We’re assuming that the titular character in Venom will be Eddie Brock – the first guy to take on the Venom mantle. But could it be Mac Gargan, the baddie that originally annoyed Spider-Man as the Scorpion? Mac Gargan came to possess the Venom symbiote a while after anti-hero Brock ditched it. Gargan possibly posed an even bigger threat than his venomous predecessor, as the criminal possessed none of Brock’s moral code and was able to create a replica of his scorpion tail out of a symbiotic tendril. If Scorpion pops up in the third or fourth "Amazing Spider-Man," odds are he could make an appearance in "Venom."
