The Poisons are a species of crystalline extraterrestrials spawned by the Poison Queen. Originating on Earth-17952, the Poisons spent an unknown sum of time as raven for larger, stronger creatures before discovering that they could assimilate Symbiotes and their hosts to become more brawny. [ 1 ] While hunting the Venom Symbiote, [ 2 ] they were discovered by an embodiment of Doctor Strange, who bonded to the symbiote and proceeded to recruit an army of Venomized superheroes, antiheroes, and supervillains from across the Multiverse to stop the Poisons. however, the Poisons saw this as an opportunity to swell their ranks, and most of these recruits were either killed or assimilated. [ 3 ] The Hive ‘s second-in-command, Poison Thanos, dispatched a battalion of Poisons led by a poison incarnation of Doctor Doom in order to crush the Resistance and consume Doctor Strange ; intending to use him to summon incarnations of Venom from across the Multiverse, largely being unaware of the universe of other, more mighty symbiotes until the Resistance summoned an embodiment of Carnage. [ 4 ] Eventually, the Poisoned villains and heroes stage during that conflict, along with numerous unbind Poisons, were killed when the Resistance – with the avail of Poison Deadpool – infiltrated their transport to rescue Doctor Strange and rigged it to self-destruct. Poison Deadpool, Carnage, and Venomized Doctor Strange besides perished during the explosion, but not before the latter managed to send the Venoms bet on to their proper realities. however, the Poisoned Doctor Doom escaped and reported back to Poison Thanos. immediately mindful of the universe of other realities, Poison Thanos declared his captive to assemble an even greater army and conquer the Multiverse. [ 5 ]

Traveling from population to universe, the Poisons developed a scheme of raiding the symbiote homeworld and attacking Earth, infecting its heroes and villains with symbiotes before consuming them. [ 6 ] [ 7 ] Targeting Earth-616, the Poisons manipulated Kei Kawade into summoning Poison Fin Fang Foom, but the crystalline dragon was slain. [ 8 ] Arriving on Earth-616, the Hive consumed Killer Thrill, her gang, and the time-displaced Marvel Girl. The Hive employed the aid of Haze Mancer, [ 9 ] a symbiote poacher, to locate the symbiote homeworld and raid it, resulting in the destruction of the Agents of the Cosmos and the abduction of every symbiote salute at the time of the attack. [ 10 ] Arriving on Earth, the Poisons altered the symbiotes to make them more unmanageable for their hosts to remove and began infecting superpowered individuals with them, seeking out the individuals designated as anomalies in order to consume them before they became a menace : Kid Kaiju for his ability to summon monsters, and Carnage for his insatiate bloodlust. [ 6 ] The Hive located Cletus Kasady – who had been stripped of the Carnage symbiote – and forcibly bonded him to a new symbiote before consuming him to create Poison Carnage. [ 11 ] however, the symbiote-augmented heroes were able to locate the Poisons ‘ ship and attacked it with help from Poison Marvel Girl – Jean Grey having been resisting the Poison Queen ‘s control. To protect her friends, Jean Grey killed Poison Marvel Girl, siphoning the biography force absorbed by the Poison Queen to become an entity of psionic energy. Jean subsequently killed the Poison Queen, causing the unbound Poisons to crumble and most of the limit Poisons to implode. [ 12 ] Of the two surviving Poisons, Poison Wolverine renamed itself Poison and established a begrudge symbiotic relationship with the consciousness of its master of ceremonies ; [ 13 ] while Cletus Kasady was resurrected and restored by Knull – the god of the symbiotes. [ 14 ]

Powers and Abilities


In their hostless “ unbind ” state, Poisons are adequate to of psychically disguising themselves as their targets ‘ loved ones or impeccant bystanders in regulate to catch them napping. [ 15 ] [ 2 ] If an unbound poison comes into physical contact with a symbiote that has bonded to a host, it will form a permanent adhesiveness with the symbiote, consuming the host ‘s body to catalyze the process. [ 2 ] Upon consuming the symbiote ‘s host, the Poison will assimilate their memories, powers, and abilities ; and the mind of the symbiote will then be silenced so the poison can take full control. [ 1 ] This summons can take some time to be completed, [ 2 ] and can be resisted by some individuals. [ 1 ] [ 16 ] Poisons who have bonded to a host are able to weaponize the absorb symbiote ‘s biomass, transforming it into tentacles, blades, and early types of weapons. [ 2 ] One of the main reasons for them to keep the hosts alive is to use their bodies as alimentary sources while the Poisons complete the bonding march. [ 17 ] Poisons are besides capable of some form of inter-dimensional travel, presumably through Doctor Doom or the early consumed magic-users, as the majority of their forces are located in a decimate reality, though a specimen impersonated Daredevil on the universe where a Venomized Gwenpool was located in order to ambush and consume her. [ 15 ]


Without a host, Poisons are physically frail and trust on their ability to disguise themselves as a target ‘s love ones to obtain a host. Once they assimilate a symbiote, they become exponentially stronger, taking on whatever powers the symbiote and its host possessed while discarding their weaknesses ; [ 18 ] but are unable to consume anyone else, leaving them vulnerable to being killed. [ 2 ] They can not consume a human if they are n’t bonded with a symbiote, and neither can consume a symbiote if it is bonded to a human. As a side-effect of assimilating the host ‘s memories, they may be affected by their aroused attachments, as when Poison Spider-Man was unable to bring himself to kill Spinneret – an alternate incarnation of his wife. [ 17 ] If the symbiote ‘s host has multiple personalities or is mentally unstable, the Poison may be unable to fully control them, as was the case with Deadpool and Cletus Kasady. [ 12 ] [ 16 ] The merged Poisons are incredibly vulnerable to the touch of the Carnage Symbiote, no matter which personification they may be. [ 1 ] Experimenting on the Cletus Kasady of Earth-616, Poison Doom determined that Carnage was a menace while clothe in any symbiote, but that it was Kasady ‘s insatiate bloodlust that was the dangerous component rather than the symbiote itself. [ 19 ] Both tie down and unbind Poisons are vulnerable to Agent Anti-Venom ‘s cleansing allude, which kills them instantaneously. [ 4 ] A final helplessness of the Poisons was discovered to be the assimilation of potent psionic minds like Jean Grey, who was deoxyadenosine monophosphate much a psychic entity as she was pulp and blood. Because of this, the Hive could not in full assimilate her wholly into the collective ; making her all the more dangerous as she could hijack their gestalt radio link to murder them all at once through the Queen. [ 16 ]
