I am guessing that Toxin will soon show up with a new host chosen by Crime-Master.

So the entire point of Toxin's character- a true symbiote hero...just is replaced with another symbiote villain...
Though I guess Flash is filling that niche already...

Scorn is probably meant to be the new version of Toxin, especially because she's another offspring of Carnage.

I'm still rather "meh" on the idea of Venom being a hero, even if it's only through Flash.

"He’s Peter Parker: a shy, introverted teen whose life changed forever when a radioactive spider bit him. • She’s Mary Jane Watson: product of a broken home, concealing her pain with an outgoing party-girl persona. • They meet, fall in love and get married. This is their story. • The classic 1989 graphic novel returns!"

It is? Huh. I love "Parallel Lives" and I'm proud to say that I own it. I've always wondered why the hatred that Doc Ock had for Spider-Man AND Peter Parker in that story didn't really get touched upon in the stories afterwards.

As for the May Solicits, it's just more gimmicks and stories I'm, unfortunately, not going to read. And I hope that Marvel cures Doctor Octopus already. This has been dragging on for long enough.

Well, we don't know that's what they are doing with Toxin. All we know is that the Toxin symbiote is separated from its prior host, is in the possession of villains, and that "Toxin" will apparently be fighting along side those same villains in May. I agree that it seems to add up to Toxin getting a new villainous host, but we won't know for sure until the new story comes out.

I haven't read any of the new Carnage comics so I know nothing about Scorn. Are those books good?

I never like it when Marvel tries to make Eddie Brock into a hero, but Flash trying to be a hero while fighting the influence of the Venom symbiote is a great idea to me.
