Origins:
 
Eddie Brock is the former-villain-turned-hero Venom. Starting his career as a failed reporter unwittingly due to the actions of Spider-Man, he would go to Our Lady of Saints Church to ask God forgiveness before attempting suicide. However, a symbiote that was earlier discarded there by Spider-Man sensed his anger and merged with him, becoming one of the deadliest foes of Spider-Man.
Going by the alias of Venom, he would give birth to another symbiote that bonded with the serial killer Cletus Kasady to become Carnage. For a time, Eddie agreed to a truce with Spider-Man and moved to San Francisco, where he became the anti-heroic "Lethal Protector" of an Underground City, but returned to villainy following a failed stint as a black ops government assassin. Parting ways with the Venom symbiote, Eddie began to seek redemption for his dark past - bonding to the Anti-Venom and Toxin symbiotes, before finally returning as Venom and attempting to become a true hero.
Coming into conflict with the God of the Symbiotes, Knull, Eddie eventually discovered he had a son named Dylan. Eddie freed Knull from his prison to save his son from Carnage,but redeemed himself after vanquishing the dark god during his invasion to Earth, becoming the new King in Black. Eventually, as his body aged decades in a few months and he needed someone to protect Dylan while he managed the Symbiote Hive, he passed on his mantle of Venom to his son.
Shortly after becoming the King In Black, Eddie began having cryptic visions of the future which led him to an organization called the Absent Throne, which was threatening Dylan, before he could relay that information, he was killed by followers of the Absent Throne and his codex was transported to the Garden of Time, a place where he met other Kings In Black, in particular one named Meridius.
After trying to get back in time to reach Dylan, Eddie found himself seeing Dylan attacked by Bedlam, Bedlam is a time-traveling version of Eddie Brock whose memories were stripped by Ben Reilly and Madelyne Pryor, resulting in a hollow faÁade of Venom that ultimately transformed into Bedlam after a confrontation with Synch of the X-Men.
