Venom Noir Concepts by MalikStudios Venom Noir Concepts by MalikStudios
Here is some concept work for Marvel for the Noir version of Venom.

This Venom lacks the traditional symbiote, as those elements do not exist in the Noir Universe. Instead, Ed Brock is Norman "The Goblin" Osborn's resident Gris-Gris, a type of voodoo practioner. Going back to the warehouse where he deduces the broken statue of the Spider God that gave Spider-Man his powers had fallen, Brock searches for and captures one of the Spider-God's spiders. After several rituals and milking the spider of a substantial amount of venom, Brock drinks the venom, gaining the same powers as Spider-Man, henceforth calling himself Venom. His costume stems from his obsession to not only kill Spider-Man, but to replace him. He has outfitted his gloves with metal claws, and a new Spider symbol for his jacket. His powers are roughly identical to SPider-Man's, but his larger size allows him to overpower the web-slinger.

it would be cool if you had also characterized him as a Nazi Supporter in order to make him more menacing and scary

This is a good idea but I gotta ask: why not keep the symbiote? I know aliens weren't as prominent in 1933 and were usually blamed on Germans or religion but that doesn't mean they didn't still exist

The universe itself in the NOIR marvel wouldn't permit the existence of aliens. They did however have mutants, but they died.

are there stars in the night sky during noir?  then aliens are possible in it

Cool ^_^!Made it by yourself?

This is absolutely incredible. I love the design, man. Noir has always been such an interesting universe, I think he fits right in while still keeping true to the imposing figure that is venom.

A excellent take on the character. Good job.

Oh man - this is just AWWESOME. Great take of the character - trying to keep the original's basic design but replacing little bits and pieces!

Wow... After reading the description, it makes me want
to find the Marvel Noir series. If it's like this, I think I
could be turned (at least temporarily) from DC. +Fave.
Nice work, Malik.
