Here's my V&V3.0: Mighty Protectors write-up for Venom, a Marvel super-villain (and later anti-hero), who was originally a foe of Spider-Man. 

Created by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane, Venom's first full appearance was in Amazing Spider-Man #300, published May, 1988.

This version of Venom hails from the comics of the late 1980's to the early 1990's. In these issues, Venom is most definitely a villain, and on more than one occasion, even though he remarks how it is "regrettable" to kill an innocent person, that's exactly what he does.

Venom is much stronger than Spider-Man, and definitely stronger than his "official" ability of being able to lift 11 tons. In several of these early issues he lifts and throws cars and lifts a bulldozer.

Venom's webbing is just like Spider-Man's web, only it's natural -- not from a gadget.

Venom is highly accurate; he often hits victims in the face with his webbing. In MP, this is a called shot with a penalty of -6 to hit. Venom actually asphyxiates to death several innocent victims by webbing over their mouth and nose.

The Venom "skin" can change its shape to almost anything, thus I gave him the Shape-Shifting ability along with Invisibility with the Camouflage modifier.

Using the LInked modifier is the closest I could come to simulating how Venom is a symbiote that lives "inside" Eddie. The times when the symbiote is driven out of Eddie can be done in Mighty Protectors by using the Siphon ability, with all of Venom's abilities treated as one because they are linked together.
