Mac Gargan as Venom

Venom is a playable villain in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 and a DLC character in Marvel Ultimate Alliance.

History Edit

Before Marvel Ultimate Alliance Edit

Mac Gargan was a private investigator who underwent an experiment which gave him the personality of a scorpion and caused the loss of his sanity.  For years he fought Spider-Man using a suit complete with a scorpion tail.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance Edit

Mac Gargan, as the scorpion, was a part of Dr. Doom's Masters of Evil.  He was part of the attack on the helicarrier, but was quickly defeated by Captain America, Wolverine, Thor, and Spiderman.  He somehow escaped S.H.I.E.L.D custody and later participated in the invasion of Asgard with a more powerful suit.  This time he was paired with the Lizard, but even their combined efforts could not defeat the heroes. Venom is a playable character in the game Marvel Ultimate Alliance: Gold Edition.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2 Edit

Sometime after the events of Marvel Ultimate Alliance, he was found by the venom symbiote, which transformed him into Venom.  As Venom, he had a period of criminal activity before being captured by shield.  He was injected with nanites and placed inside S.H.I.E.L.D's Prison 42 in the Negative Zone.  He is later let out as a test of the nanite control system.  He assists the pro-reg heroes in fighting Prodigy, and is then brought back.  He is brought into battle at the factory sting operation.  While fighting, the nanites take control of him and he teams up with the Green Goblin, Bullseye and Lady Deathstrike to blow up the factory and kill all of the heroes.  Nick Fury's robotic double teams up wiht the heroes to stop them, but the last bomb still goes off.  He is returned to the prison afterwards, though neither side knows of his role in blowing up the factory.  He is later one of the villians unwillingly freed by Captain America.  However, as he walks from his cell, the nanites take over his system.  He then attacks the nanite control center.  He later attacks Wakanda, once again paired with the Green Goblin.  He is defeated, however, and the nanites are removed from his system.  He voluntarily assists the heroes in fighting the nanites.
