Venom is the stronger fella being able to lift up around 70 tons while Creeper’s only feats document in punching thugs into the air. Eddie Brock has a stealth advantage thanks to his camouflage. The Spider-Man villain can also use his webbings to help him fight in more than just up close fights. Venom has a peak human healing, but his true defense system is his durability that can protect him from gun shots or knife stabs. Creeper on the other hand has a healing factor that reacts quickly and once came back from the dead when ripped by Eclipse hyenas. He doesn’t posses any equivalent senses but his reflexes are strong. Where he has a huge advantage is his advanced hand-to-hand fighting and razor sharp claws.

Venom defeats the Creeper because he outshines Jack Ryder in every category (especially strength). He also defeated much more powerful enemies countless times in his history and-WHAT IS THIS?!?! Creeper has a laugh which pains his victims putting them into comatose states? This is not good for Eddie at all. The symbiote may survive the cut damages, but definitely not the laugh which puts regular humans into comas. Those familiar with Venom know his alien suit is very fragile to sound and that’s in fact his weakness. Every opponent Eddie beat with his alien suit didn’t posses a sound ability unlike Creeper. Jack Ryder also has his instant healing factor which can recover from Venom’s strikes. Well this fight swigged into a territory we did not expect it to reach.

Next week we will have two skilled marksmen, and no it’s not Green Arrow vs. Hawkeye which we already covered and if you don’t believe me press on that title. Battle #48 will be a tricky and a magical shoot out. 🙂
