Venom Body Paint Will Haunt Your Nightmares

Eddie Brock was once a reporter for the Daily Bugle who had the story of his career when he uncovered the identity of the Sin-Eater in the pages of Marvel Comics’ “Amazing Spider-Man.” Not long after, Spider-Man unmasked the real Sin-Eater, ending Brock’s career and shattering his life. Unable to deal with where his life had ended up, Brock was prepared to commit suicide — when he found someone else who hated Spider-Man as much as he did. That someone was more of a something, an alien symbiote Spider-Man had bonded with and later rejected. Together, Brock and the symbiote became the sinister force known as Venom.

It’s all well and good when Venom is a fictional character, but what about when he enters the real world (and no, “Spider-Man 3″ is still fictional, so that doesn’t count)? The results are pretty scary.

These images are the creation of Georgette Pressler at Devious Body Art, and they are a thing of terrifying beauty.

While Brock began a serious villain and struggled to do something better with his life, the current iteration of Marvel Comics’ Venom is a hero. Flash Thompson was Peter Parker’s high school bully (and later friend) who grew up idolizing Spider-Man and wanting to emulate his hero. After being wounded in Iraq cost him the use of his legs he enrolled in a new government super soldier program that bonded him with the alien symbiote known as Venom. Now Flash uses his new-found abilities to fight for truth, justice, and the American way as a super powered government agent.

Thanks to HeroChan for originally finding these images.


That is off the hook! Fantastic!

I can’t remember where I saw the pictures but there is Venom cosplay by this girl using latex that makes this look childish.

Sorry Scud, but nothing about these images looks childish, how hard is it to praise something without bashing something else? Makes you look childish.

Very creative and inventive! Nice job sir.



Both are good in different ways. Maybe those two crazy kids should get together.
