Dr. Conrad Marcus was a gifted biochemist working for the Roxxon Corporation. When reporter Betty Brant tracked him down to find information about a dead genetic experimental Spider which had given Miles Morales his abilities he went back to Roxxon and put on the Venom suit. With it he killed Brant and gathered her notes on who the new Spider-man was, Jefferson Davis. He attacked Jefferson and critically wounded him but was defeated by Miles Morales. He followed Jefferson to the hospital where he had a finale showdown with Spider-man. He managed to seemingly devour Spider-man and attacked Rio Morales fatally wounding her in the process. Miles managed to overload the suit stripping him of it just as the police arrived to shoot him dead.
