When Spider-Man followed Strike Agent Four, she and the other defender symbiotes attacked the wall earthworm. [ 4 ] But before they could kill him Eddie who had gotten absolve once they removed the Venom symbiote, appeared. But in order to beat them Eddie became Venom once again, and with Spider-Man defeated her and the others using a metabolic catalyst, aging the symbiotes turning them into dust and apparently killing them when Venom turned up the ability. Her host arsenic well as the other symbiotes besides appeared to die in the ensuing explosion. [ 5 ]

The Exile Returns

however, thanks to the efforts of the Life Foundation, they survived. As she and her mate symbiote siblings began attempting to compel their hosts to violence, Donna and the other mercenaries left the Life Foundation and searched for Eddie Brock, the host of the Venom symbiote, hoping he would help them control their symbiotes. Eddie, dismissing them as lost causes who would turn out adenine bad as Carnage, refused to aid them. Donna asked the Scarlet Spider to help her discovery Brock, but he besides refused. Succumbing to her schizophrenia and the symbiote ‘s bloodlust, Donna began rampaging through Times Square and was confronted by both Venom and the Scarlet Spider. Venom about killed both the symbiote and Donna, but was stopped by the Scarlet Spider, who managed to separate Brock and his symbiote. [ 6 ] [ 7 ] [ 8 ]

separation anxiety

With her horde placid fighting for restraint they joined the stay of the former defender symbiotes in Donna ‘s third base undertake in getting Brock to help. together they broke Brock, who Venom symbiote was elsewhere, and a reporter pretending to be a sophisticate Ellis out of a New Mexico adeptness and brought them to an abandoned factory in a small city near Chicago to make him help them. [ 8 ] [ 9 ] unfortunately yet again Brock refused, far pushing her host Donna to succumb to her schizophrenia again. But this clock time she hosts believing all symbiotes are evil would secretly turn on its siblings. When Brock and Ellis managed to escape, the host under her psychosis used a sonic blade Donna acquired and killed the symbiotes “ sister ” and its host Leslie Gesneria. Later, when Leslie ‘s soundbox was found, the others believed it was Eddie Brock who killed her wanted to make him pay. [ 10 ] After following Brock to a warehouse its host had everyone ‘s sports fan out, once alone, Donna killed its symbiote “ buddy ” and his master of ceremonies Carl Mach. When Brock was found with not only Mach ‘s body, but the sonic blade, Donna blamed him and attacked, but Roman Hernandez stopped her in the hopes Brock can still help them. But inactive not getting anywhere with Brock her horde could n’t take it anymore, taking the sonic blade Donna killed its symbiote “ brother ” and his host Trevor Cole. [ 10 ] [ 11 ]

[ 12 ] [ 11 ] late, through undisclosed circumstances they managed to escape the Federal Agents, leaving her symbiote “ siblings ” behind .

The Hunt

Following an Invasion of symbiotes, a large count of New Yorkers had been taken over by symbiotes, and some had even managed to retain them even after the speculate mass-suicide of the invaders. [ 13 ] [ 14 ] [ 15 ] [ 16 ] When its host regained a appreciation on her sanity, Donna took control, or at least reached a modus Vivendi with it. To make up for her by behavior, she began seeking out other symbiote and helping their human hosts to cope. [ 17 ] When another of those she was helping and their symbiotes turned up abruptly, the sixth in three weeks, she believed the reports by the NYPD that the brain-eating serial cause of death was Venom. Thinking her apartment was the safest place she left Zeena Hodges, another of those struggling with their symbiote, to find others that needed their serve. The future day, she returned with another refugee of the symbiote invasion, George, they found police had blocked off the build. When the police left to chase down Venom they went to investigate, going through her personal things she got bore of George ‘s constant badger and a contend broke out. As she gained the upper hired hand on George she noticed an despicable musical composition of furniture that was n’t her ‘s, it on the spur of the moment transformed revealing itself to be a Xenophage. [ 17 ] [ 18 ] The Xenophage, a marauder of the symbiotes who was attracted to Earth by their invasion, was the actual killer of Zeena, and the other refugees Donna was trying to help. It attacked them, eating George ‘s and his symbiotes brains, it paralyzed her with its Paralytic Saliva which the weight of the out cold symbiote kept Donna from moving arsenic well. Keeping her for later, the Xenophage turned second into dining hutch concealing Donna within itself as it waited for its main course, Venom and Eddie Brock. When the NYPD surrounded Venom outside Donna ‘s construct, the Xenophage revealed itself and using its symbiote paralytic saliva on Venom besides. [ 17 ] [ 18 ] Though the symbiote briefly came to, allowing Donna to fight back, the Xenophage sprayed her again and escaped from the pursuing patrol with the two paralyze symbiotes and their host by slipping into a metro tunnel. Eddie tried to fight back, but the Xenophage was just besides firm for him. A group of skateboarders that had befriended Eddie tried to help, but the Xenophage simply looked forward to dining on them adenine well, likening them to veal. Horrified, having come to again Donna joined Eddie in fighting off the alien to keep it away from the kids. As the metro discipline they were on barreled past its place, an over-zealous military officer tried to throw a white phosphorous grenade at Venom. The Venom symbiote come to and Eddie used it to pocket the grenade before it went off. however, as the Xenophage was about to eat her and Donna, Eddie tricked the Xenophage into eating it by hiding the grenade in an elongation of his symbiote shaped like his fountainhead. The grenade went murder, and the Xenophage exploded into a ardent hell, leaving it a char and noxious fix on lead of the underpass trail. [ 19 ] When the NYPD showed up, one of the skateboarder kids, Rocky, told the detectives about Donna being on the roof of the first car and how she needs immediate aesculapian care. As Venom pretending to be “ Rad Eddie ” again slipped passed the detectives with the skateboarders. [ 19 ]

It Had To Happen

The Scream symbiote was ultimately killed aboard Donna by Eddie Brock, who incapacitated it with sonic feedback and stabbed her to death with a heat knife. [ 20 ] Years late, Scream was resurrected by Knull, still bonded to Donna ‘s cadaver. When Patricia Robertson – a soldier who had once hosted a knockoff of the Venom symbiote – attacked it, Scream abandoned Donna ‘s skeleton and bonded to her. initially having assimilated Donna ‘s personality and mental voices, Scream succumbed to Knull ‘s control and attacked Andi Benton, who it recognized its host bore a grudge against for having bonded to and lost the clone symbiote. [ 21 ] Patricia ‘s strong will helped the Scream symbiote resist Knull ‘s operate, but it succumbed again when attacked by Carnage. [ 22 ] Persuading the Scream symbiote to resist Knull ‘s restraint a second time, Patricia sacrificed herself in an attempt to save Andi ‘s liveliness, and the Scream symbiote left her cadaver and bonded to Andi. [ 23 ] Unlike Andi ‘s amicable kinship with her former symbiote, she came to loathe being bonded to the Scream symbiote, trying to shut it out of her mind and demanding that it abandon her like everyone else had. Despite Andi lashing out at it in her despair and anger, the Scream symbiote protected her whenever she was attacked, and helped her in hunting manque rapists. When Andi attempted to commit suicide, the Scream symbiote regained its voice and saved her, though their subsequent argument was interrupted when Andi was attacked by Lovecraftian monsters. Taking over, Scream noted that the creatures were formed from drowned corpses fused to sea life and reanimated by living expiate, and contemptuously killed them before telling the traumatize Andi that it would keep her safe. Following Andi angrily telling it that it was endangering her, the Scream symbiote fell silent for respective days, merely breaking its silence to urgently beg Andi not to listen to a charwoman claiming to be her mother. [ 24 ] The woman was revealed to be a cadaver reanimated by a symbiote, which pursued Andi to the F.E.A.S.T. tax shelter and took over the dispossessed people staying there. Absorbing a patch of the symbiote, the Scream symbiote succumbed to Knull ‘s control and killed the infect dispossessed people. [ 25 ] Realizing that it and Andi were being hunted by a knock-down ancient symbiote, the Scream symbiote and Andi declared a armistice to deal with the threat and descended to the bottomland of Upper New York Bay. Attacked by Big Mother, the Scream symbiote rebuked the ancient symbiote ‘s desire to claim it as her “ child ”. Battling Big Mother, the Scream symbiote was separated from Andi doubly, but managed to break free of Big Mother ‘s clutches and save her. The Scream symbiote and Andi acknowledging each other as family and accepting their shackle, Scream lynched and decapitated Big Mother, though the Scream symbiote warned Andi that Big Mother was not dead and would probably return to seek retaliation. [ 26 ] When Knull invaded Earth, he encountered his brothers Lasher, Agony, Riot and Phage under Knull ‘s dominance who tried to eat a child. The four symbiotes merged into Hybrid to assimilate her, told Andi to use the Hell-Mark to conjure Hellfire. When Hybrid attempted to assimilate Scream he was immolated by Hellfire from within. Andi and Scream took the male child away, unaware that the amalgam symbiote had survived and escaped through the sewers. [ 27 ] Andi and Scream late confronted Demagoblin, having learned that she was creating a fad of homeless children, and managed to free the children from Demagoblin ‘s control. Scream ‘s battle with Demagoblin was interrupted when Knull manifested an embodiment to confront them, contemptuously tossing Demagoblin aside. Angered that the Scream symbiote refused to submit to him, Knull declared his intent to make it watch as he killed its host after tearing them from each other. Knull attempted to psychically force the Scream symbioye to submit to his will, leaving Scream immobilized as he summoned a drove of humble symbiote-dragons and sicced them on her. With Andi ‘s life in risk, the Scream symbiote was able to throw off Knull ‘s influence and they incinerated the symbiote-dragons with hellfire. Knull ‘s avatar attacked them immediately, initially shrugging off their attacks, but by feeding their fury and annoyance into the Hell-Mark they were able to repel him with an omnidirectional explosion of hellfire. [ 28 ] Searching for Demagoblin, Scream found the Doppelgänger in the center of escaping from Alchemax, which had taken to performing barbarous and unethical experiments on capture extraterrestrials and monsters. Subduing Doppelgänger, Scream was attacked by one of Alchemax ‘s Guardsmen, disarming and interrogating him as to why he was targeting them. As a broadcast of Senator Peter Krane ‘s interview was played over a set of televisions on expose at a nearby store, the Scream symbiote sensed an leftover strum sound that merely it could hear, but which made Andi feel nauseating as it increased in volume. Realizing that it was being called and ineffective to resist the urge to comply, the Scream symbiote began behaving erratically until Andi decided to retreat into a nearby sewer to figure out what was going on .
The Scream symbiote and Andi were abruptly pulled into the Symbiote Hive-Mind by Carnage, the source of the overpowering cheer that the Scream symbiote had felt. Silencing Andi, Carnage informed the Scream symbiote that he was planning on putting together his own Hive to rival Venom ‘s and intended to recruit the other Life-Foundation symbiotes into it. ineffective and unwilling to resist Carnage ‘s influence, the Scream symbiote allowed him to take over – causing its to assume a Carnage-ized form and go on a rampage while puppeteering Andi ‘s soundbox. When Andi berated it for its treachery, saying she thought they were family, the Scream symbiote retorted that Carnage was its true family. To put an end to the Carnage-Infested Scream ‘s slaughter, Andi revoked its exemption from her Hell-Mark and blasted it with Hellfire until its keep on her judgment was broken. As Andi lamented that she thought they would be together, demanding to know why it would betray her after everything they ‘d been through, the Scream symbiote – enraged and spurred on by Carnage – accused Andi of lying to and betraying it and tried to kill her. Out of despair, Andi blasted the Scream symbiote with an explosion of hellfire, burning away Carnage ‘s corruptness but killing it in the march, leaving Andi sobbing in despair as it sloughed away from her. [ 29 ] When Andi was arrested by Alchemax ‘s Guardsmen, Scream ‘s remains were taken and claimed by Dr. Steven, who attempted to resuscitate it. [ 30 ] Unable to do therefore, Dr. Steven combined its remains with Anti-Venom Serum, creating a fresh symbiote called Silence – which Andi bonded to thinking it was Scream resurrected. [ 31 ]
