Sitting before the Avengers at their base, Eddie Brock says that he knows they are asking themselves what everyone - even his own son - asks about him: is Venom a good guy or a bad guy? Eddie admits that the question is a fair one given that he and the Venom symbiote have operated on both sides of the law so many times even they can't keep track. Sighing, he further admits that he doesn't have an answer, and decides to go back to the beginning. Stating that he first called himself "Venom" after bonding to the symbiote because he'd thought it sounded cool, Eddie is disgusted that he'd once thought killing Spider-Man was the right thing to do; adding that if he thought he was being a hero during his villain days then even now he can't trust himself to rightly answer where Venom's allegiances lie. Eddie admits that he wants people to see him as a hero and look at him the way they do at Spider-Man, before questioning if he's even a good enough person to be a good guy. Despite his self-doubts, Eddie states that he's trying every day to be a better person.
