Product Description

The Spider-Man(TM) legend continues with an epic battle against one of Spidey's greatest foes. When an alien element falls into the wrong hands, a lethal new criminal is unleashed. Experience all the high-flying animated action and spine-tingling excitement of this spectacular clash in SPIDER-MAN: THE VENOM(TM) SAGA. After rescuing the pilot of a space shuttle carrying two strange meteors, Spider-Man notices a black stain on his costume and a disturbing change in his behavior. Soon, the evil stain consumes his entire costume, and America's favorite Super Hero(TM) awakens to find himself on the run from both the authorities and his arch-enemies. Will Venom(TM) be the one to finally ground the Webslinger, or will Spider-Man be able to defeat this powerful new force?


Venom, the scariest and most memorable villain from Spider-Man's post-Stan Lee era, takes center stage in this collection of five episodes ("The Alien Costume" parts 1-3, "Venom Returns," and "Carnage") from the Spider-Man animated series from the mid-'90s. The action begins when astronaut John Jameson discovers a strange new substance on the moon. The substance ends up becoming a new black costume for Spider-Man, and he's thrilled with the way it enhances his natural powers (such as spinning webs without mechanical web shooters) and can change into a different outfit merely upon a thought. Spidey soon discovers, however, that the apparent costume is actually an alien symbiote that is gradually taking control of his thoughts. Spidey is able to overcome the symbiote, but it finds a new host in Daily Bugle washout Eddie Brock, and their mutual hatred of Spider-Man creates a deadly new villain, Venom, whose natural powers exceed Spidey's. Things get even more complicated when Venom's "offspring" finds a host and becomes the even deadlier Carnage. Also making appearances in these episodes are the Kingpin, the Shocker, the Rhino, Dormammu, Iron Man, and War Machine. DVD features include some interesting comments by David Michelinie, who with artist Todd MacFarlane, created Venom in the comic books. Among other topics in the unnecessarily complicated feature, he discusses differences between the show and the comics. Stan Lee also boards his soap box to dish about Venom (11 minutes) and has optional introductions for each episode. --David Horiuchi

He said the movie was good and he really enjoyed watching it.
J. Brooks
If there was one thing Marvel did right with the Spider-Man The Animated TV Series it was produsing this great 3 chapter episode titled, THE VENOM SAGA.
If you have children who enjoyed the Spiderman movies they will probably enjoy this DVD, I know my kids enjoyed it.

After buying the Doc Ock installment of Fox's Spider-Man cartoon on DVD, I noticed it contained a promo for "The Venom Saga" coming in Winter 2004. I had been looking forward to it as the three-part "Alien Costume" story arc was what got me interested in the show (and Spider-Man in general) back when I was a lad in 1994. But, Winter 2004 came and went leaving no Venom in its wake. I had completely forgotten about it until just yesterday when I saw it on the impulse-buy shelf at the checkout counter at my local supermarket. I have no idea what caused the delay; at first I wondered if the distributor wanted to hold the release until the next movie (see my review of the Essential Spectacular Spider-Man for a similar gripe). Regardless, the Venom Saga is here now and it includes probably the best episodes of the series currently on DVD.

The "Alien Costume" series features some of the finest supervillains and super-anxieties that you're likely to see Spider-Man face, in this cartoon or any other media. In it, Spidey rescues J.J. Jameson's astronaut son from a downed space shuttle, hoping to receive some real accolades from his alter ego's boss for a change. However, due to some serious yellow journalism from Parker's rival photog, Eddie Brock, Spidey is framed for stealing the highly fissionable alien material Prometheum X from the shuttle and ol' sourpuss puts out a million dollar pricetag on him instead. The Prometheum is actually in the big, meaty hands of the Kingpin who, along with his science advisor Alistair Smythe and his two costumed gunnies, Rhino and the Shocker, is hoping to sell the extraterrestrial WMD to some ski-mask wearing terrorists (seriously).

I was hoping to be the first reviewer of this DVD, but because Amazon.com didn't list it with the other 'Spidey' DVD's, I had to wait forever to see it, and that just makes me annoyed. This DVD was even released into the stores before Amazon.com showed it (and I bought this DVD before I even got 'Doc Ock'). But here I go anyway . . .
Venom is my favourite enemy of Spider-Man, and I love watching this DVD. The first 3 episodes ("the Alien Costume Pt. 1-3)" show how Spider-Man finds the 'Alien Symbiote' and uses it for his own costume, how he tries to get rid of it and finally how Eddie Brock becomes Venom and Spider-Man's worst nightmare (Season 1). The next episode is "Venom Returns", with War-Machine (Ironman's friend and partner) helping Spider-man fight the returned Venom , as well as the new arrival of Carnage, with Ironman appearing in the next episode "Carnage" (both Season 3). "Venom Returns" and "Carnage" are back-to-back/to-be-continued episodes, so, unlike the previous DVDs which had 4 episodes, this release has 5 episodes. The only other special features are the usual "Episode Introductions with Stan Lee" and "Stan Lee's Soapbox", and he says a lot of interesting things. But just like the "Doc Ock" DVD, the Main Menu starts out differently from the first 3 DVDs (now possibly being made by Marvel Entertainment and not Disney, which you can see on the side-spine), and the first episode also has a new opening (same tune, though). The animation is great, but when it comes to epsiodes 4 & 5 it doesn't look the same, sometimes a bit slaggy or not much effort, but still okay.

This was nice CD my son enjoyed it. Shows the Venom story in the Spiderman Series Cartoon. It is a great buy. You can see the difference in the script back then and now. For instance as Venom Spiderman almost kills Shocker but his doesn't say I almost killed some one, he says I almost did a bad thing. That when entertainment cared about the content of what they put out. I love superheros cartoons and I enjoy watching them with the kids

I use to watch this animated series as a kid but I didn't appreciate the writing or plot development as much as just watching Spidey fight the bad guys. Watching it is an adult gives me a better appreciation for the writing and creativity. This DVD is a must buy for fans and an easy watch for people new to Spider Man. The DVD is well-made and the bonus material with Stan Lee is entertaining to watch. Would have given 5 stars but I was hoping for more bonus material and interviews.

Format: DVD
Astronaut John Jameson whom is the son of Jonah Jameson was doing an exploration on the moon as he bring backs a space rock with a black alien slime inside of it. When it attacks John as they approach Earth the ship crash lands by the river of New York, a large muscular man in a Rhino outfit named The Rhino steals the space rock from the ship with Peter Parker's rival Eddie Brock taking pictures of the robbery and telling Jonah Jameson that Spider-Man was the one that robbed the shuttle. Spidy has been framed and a mysterious alien goo consumes his costume making it into a special black Spider-Man costume with super jumping speed, can change his clothes for him and can make unlimited webbing thus making him a super Spider-Man as he thinks it's swell. Unfortunately it's a deadly living organism that is trying to take over his personality and his body as he soon discovers and must try to get rid of it, once he does it consumes Eddie Brock turning him into the sharp-toothed big eyed black Spider-Man doppleganger named Venom so he can reek his revenge on Spider-Man.

Another great DVD set of the great 1994 Spider-Man animated series but this time with every fanboy's favorite Spider-Man villain, these episodes also guest star Kingpin, Shocker, Rhino, Iron-Man, War Machine and Carnage. Featuring the voices of Hank Azaria and Ed Asner and good animation with some CGI, this is the perfect appetizer for fans before they see "Spider-Man 3" to see Venom on the big screen.

The DVD has only a few extras like introductions by Stan Lee, a multi-featurette on Venom's origins by the creators and Stan Lee's Soapbox.
