Apparently, Bennett didn't die and was taken by a criminal organization, which chose him to become the new Crime-Master. Bennett kidnapped a young boy, who he wanted to become his disciple and taught him to kill. At adulthood he became his own Jack O'Lantern.
At the European Eastern country Nrosvekistan, Bennett sent Jack to find the Doctor Ekmecic, who was specialist in making weapons from Vibranium and also was being chased, but by a hero, the new Venom, who was working for the U.S. army, who wanted to imprison Ekmecic.
While in the Savage Land, trying to get an Antartic Vibranium shipment, the mission was compromised by Venom, who was able to find the shipment and destroy it. After taking control of an helicopter of his, Venom was contacted by Crime-Master saying that he knew his identity and that Jack kidnapped Betty Brant. He told him Betty's location, but warned him not to interfere.
Then Jack attended Thompson's father funeral, where he took him to Crime-Master, who assigned Venom a mission, blackmailing him with killing his family. Thompson went to Las Vegas and found Jack, who would go with him. At Las Vegas, in a secret lab, Jack and Venom found the Toxin symbiote, after battling an unleashed Venom, Jack flew away with the symbiote in a container.
He kidnapped Betty Brant again, but this time revealed his identity, that of her deceased brother. After Venom arrived to his hideout, Bennett almost killed him with a sonic pistol and a flamethrower, but he was shot and killed by Betty.
- Allegedly killed by Blackie Gaxton during fight with Spider-Man. He really died years later, at the hands of his own sister, Betty.
