Did You Know Marvel’s Venom Character Was Created By A Fan? #Shorts

I’m sure you’ve all heard of Marvel’s Venom. He’s one of the most popular comic book characters around. But what you may not know is that he was actually created by a fan.


Hey, Fezziwig here and in this video, I’m going to tell you something that will blow your mind. I’m talking about the origins of Marvel’s Venom, who was actually created by a fan.

Most people don’t know this, but it’s true. When Marvel Comics hosted a contest in 1982 for aspiring artists, they were shocked by the entry submitted by Randy Schueller. He submitted a concept art for a storyline that involved Spider-Man upgrading his suit to all black for stealth purposes.

After a few months, Schueller received a response from Marvel saying that they would buy the idea for $220 and a chance to script the new storyline that featured his designs.
