The Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man was not friendly anymore.

Venom was good in mind, but his actions spoke clearly. The symbiote was too cruel. He had his sense of justice, which was to kill someone that he didn’t like or eat probably.

Eventually, Peter found out about his suit, that it was a creature, Venom, the symbiote was sensitive to sound, so Spider-Man took the symbiote to a church, and he rang the massive bell.

The symbiote poured off his body but went to another host, Eddie Brock.
