Venom vs. Doctor Doom! Venom co-creator David Michelinie returns with a new story set in the sinister symbiote's past, back when brains - and Spider-Man - were still on the menu! Prepare for an epic that will take Venom far from the streets of NYC - all the way to the kingdom of Latveria! When Silver Sable and S.H.I.E.L.D. come calling, Venom is recruited into a battle to stop a tech-worshipping cult from getting their hands on a doomsday weapon. Speaking of doom, there's a certain supreme leader of Latveria who also has his titanium-armored eyes on the same prize - and he's not the only one! Brock is about to be challenged like never before! What (or who) will Venom need to overcome the fiercest foe in the Marvel Universe? Collecting VENOM: LETHAL PROTECTOR II #1-5.
