Eight Deadly Venoms!


Every once in a while, when I'm getting a figure, my girlfriend ("fiancee" is kind of a dumb word, but yeah) will ask, "Don't you already have one of those?" And sometimes my answer is, "Yes, but not one this nice." Like today's figure, the Walgreens exclusive Agent Venom!


Maybe not as fun as Dinner Jacket Venom, but still a lot of fun. Four guns, and a tentacle-back piece that can hold four guns! After I picked him up, I enjoyed reading a ton of the most recent Thunderbolts and Venom series featuring the Flash Thompson version of the character. (The Infinity crossover issues of Thunderbolts are particularly entertaining: given his choice of mission for the T-Bolts, the Punisher picks a mob family that he'd never been able to get to. The mission runs afoul of the usual complications...along with an alien invasion, and some of the criminals getting mutated by the Terrigan Mists and getting powers, and Deadpool struggling mightily to get a decent slice of pizza. Amusingly, the mobsters aren't sure who is more terrifying: the Punisher, his "pet monster" Venom, or Elektra.)

Goddamn if that Flash Thompson Venom figure isn't as good as it gets. Wish I had him, 'cause that's a sweet, sweet figure. You gotta' use him more in your skits, especially with 'Pool and Kurt. I smell Shenanigans;)
