Venom from Marvel is the most potent symbiote ever.
Eddie Venom’s first kid, Dylan Brock, has discovered a new power that puts him in danger even from the all-powerful King in Black.
The latest Venom from Marvel Comics has surpassed all previous symbiotes in strength. Dylan Brock, the son of the original Venom host Eddie, has discovered a new ability that enables him to cut off a symbiote’s connection to the hive consciousness, making him a threat to even the all-powerful Kings in Black.
The current Venom series has followed the parallel exploits of Dylan Brock, who was abandoned on Earth and bonded with the Venom symbiote to protect him, believing that his father had actually passed away, and Eddie Brock, who travelled through time and space to understand his godlike abilities as the new King in Black. In reality, Meridius, the most powerful King in Black, whose enigmatic schemes unfold over generations, caused Eddie to become a victim. Dylan is the only person who has the ability to save Eddie because he discovered a new power residing inside the Venom symbiote attached to his body.
Dylan Brock can kill a King in Black and is the strongest venom ever.
In Venom #15, written by Ram V, Bryan Hitch, Andrew Currie, Scott Hanna, and Alex Sinclair, Dylan is battling his father, the enraged red King in Black Bedlam, who has transformed into another future version of himself thanks to Meridius’ schemes. Dylan, on the other hand, uses his newly acquired abilities as Codex, the “chainbreaker,” who carries All-Black, the powerful sword that Eddie stole from Knull after defeating him.
Every time he joins with a klyntar, Dylan has the power to cut them loose from their hive. Through All-Black, he has the same power over other symbiotes. He demonstrates this by chopping off Bedlam’s hand, which will never grow back because it is no longer connected to the klyntar hive mind.
Dylan’s realisation that he is both Eddie’s and the Venom symbiote’s kid has awoken these talents. The first god Knull drew the klyntar from the “living abyss” outside the cosmos to serve as his warriors in his never-ending conflicts. The symbiotes work by uniting with a host, but they are all linked to a hive mind that is under the authority of the current King in Black.
Dylan is the only person who can combat the King in Black, who is practically omnipotent when he is attached to the hive because to his special abilities that allow him to “reap a symbiote from the hive.” This also implies that he is the only one capable of permanently killing a King in Black, which would prevent Eddie from turning into Meridius in the future.
Dylan’s capabilities have yet to be fully disclosed. Dylan was already the most powerful version of Venom ever due to his use of the necrosword All-Black, one of the universe’s most potent weapons, but his additional abilities show that he is capable of feats that no other symbiote is capable of. Klyntars are by definition a collective race, which means that whoever is in charge of the hive mind has the power to enslave them. Dylan is the only person who can truly liberate a symbiote, making him the only person who can save his father, defeat the supernatural Kings in Black, and defeat the most potent Venom ever.
