Bendis Will Reveal Venom\’s Homeworld in November


Venom Guardians of the GalaxyWhile readers of the current run of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy by Brian Michael Bendis may be longing for the days of the 2008 series, the current run has had its bright spots. Early on we got to see Rocket interacting with Tony Stark, and it was as awesome as you think. Since then the team has had a floater member ranging from Angela, to Captain Marvel, and now Agent Venom. The story has been dropping hints of the “Symbiote Planet” for a couple issues, and now we’re going to see it.

MTV has a piece talking to Bendis about finally revealing where Venom came from:

“I looked it up and I was like no, there’s been a planet we’ve seen taken over by symbiotes, but have we not seen the planet of the symbiotes?” Bendis said. “I called [Marvel Senior Vice President Of Publishing] Tom Brevoort, I go, could it be that even in the craziness of the ’90s when it was Venom, Venom, Venom every five seconds, that this story has not been told? And he goes, yeah we’ve never been there. And I’m like, now I have to do it! It’s crazy.”

“It will be a planet full of symbiotes,” Editor Mark Marts added on what to expect from the story, “But beyond that, it’s a lot of mystery. But we will be adding to the symbiote mythology in ways the average reader won’t expect at all.”

The symbiote planet will be revealed in November’s Guardians of the Galaxy #21 and will be a three-part story arc.
