As you all should very well know by now, one of my favorite movies is Spiderman. In all truth and honesty, if you asked me to pick which one is my favorite, I’d have to tell you that I have no clue whatsoever. But I can say, there’s something special about the third one. A lot of people don’t like the third one sadly. They say it was a “flop” or a “failure”, but I have to disagree. The sheer reality of it amazes me. Especially when it comes to Venom.
Let’s take a second and examine this shall we?
When it first attached itself to Peter, he was startled and I imagine a little scared, but not long after he was enjoying the power it gave him. Still curious he gave a sample to his professor and later found that it amplifies the personalities of it’s host, especially aggression.
Now, I don’t know about you, but that sounds familiar. Especially to an experience of mine as of late… The enemy has a tactic they seem to enjoy using of tricking us. Making us believe life is just so terrible that we don’t have any alternative but to just sulk in our problems, make stupid decisions, or even get mad to the point of messing everything up.
Peter found himself still liking the power venom gave him, but he started noticing what it was doing to him. After a time, he was sick of it, he was done.
* Commence bell tower scene*
He found that the clanging of the bells seemed to drive away venom, so after fighting it off in the bell tower for some time he finally wore it off. (Yes it attached itself to Eddie but that’s another story)
When you start to feel the venom joining you, get it off and get it away. Don’t let it on you, and if it gets on you, get it off fast. Because the longer it stays on you, the harder it is to get rid of it….
