Venom is one of Spider-Man’s most powerful foes, at least when he isn’t making a go at being a hero as a Lethal Protector. He has all of Spidey’s powers, even greater super-strength and a few extra tricks up his symbiotic sleeve for good measure. However, Venom is far from invulnerable. This character has weaknesses, and those weaknesses have led to him being killed or mortally wounded in past Marvel stories.
Read on to find out what Venom’s weaknesses are and learn about when this character has met his end in Marvel’s comics, movies and TV series.
The Venom symbiote has two major weaknesses – sound and fire. Loud noises cause the symbiote to writhe in pain. That’s how Peter Parker originally freed himself of the symbiote. A tolling church bell drove the two apart and sent the fleeing symbiote straight into the arms of an unsuspecting Eddie Brock. Even now, sonic weapons tend to be the first line of defense against Venom and his fellow symbiotes.
