Synopsis for "What If the Alien Costume Had Possessed Spider-Man?"Edit
After obtaining the symbiote costume, Spider-Man waited too long before visiting Mr. Fantastic to free him from the symbiote's control. So the suit takes control of Spider-Man and constantly feeds on him, aging him at an accelerated rate. Within days, Peter Parker ages to about 85 years old, and the symbiote ditches him to bond with a weakened Hulk. Peter later dies of old age. Thor then confronts Venom/Hulk. The costume explains that he is sorry for Spider-Man's death, but is draining the gamma radiation from Bruce Banner as repentance. In disbelief, Thor defeats him, leading to the symbiote taking over Thor. Banner, however, is shown to be cured of being The Hulk. The heroes employ Black Bolt's incredibly powerful voice to create enough sonic damage to critically injure the symbiote.
Thor is then free, and the heroes prepare to transport the alien to another dimension. Black Cat takes matters into her own hands and kills the alien, angry from the death of Spider-Man. After killing the symbiote, Black Cat is forced to work for the Kingpin since the weapon she used to kill the symbiote was given to her in exchange for her servitude to him.
